After a few hours of use with the power beats pro I think they are a keeper. They connect faster than anything I have so far. As for range the Sony still hold that by far. As for sound, the Sony and Sennheiser are quite a bit better. The PBP have a smooth sound with great bass and they're soundstage to me seems wider than what I have read. I should mention that I have Spinfits on (just like Frank's Red Hot saying, I put that sh@t on everything). My biggest plus for keeping these are how secured they are on my head. They are not going anywhere and they are so light you forgot that they are even on. Button are easy to push, just put your finger on the button and barely press and it will do what you need.
