I spent a long time looking at various pairs of headphones and finally setted on these - despite the Beats bashers saying they're only for people who care about style over substance. Well, now I own a pair, I can safely say those people are wrong.

Yes - they are a good looking pair of headphones. I got comments on them in the office on the first day I bought them. And I've continued to get comments and questions about them after that. The shiny headband will attract fingerprints of course, but they're only really noticeable if you look closely anyway. The build quality is fantastic. The hinges lock solidly, the band adjusts well and doesn't pinch. I can wear these for long periods with no issue. The foam earcups are very comforable and the leatherette finish is lovely. The cable is thick, the L shaped connector is a nice touch and is well built, and I find the remote works well, and because it's a bit bigger, it's easier to change volume/play/pause than with some headphones.

When it comes to the audio, let me start with things that some people might not enjoy about the Beats. They do leak a little bit of sound, when they're at full pelt. Nothing major, but it might annoy a fellow train passenger if you're at full volume. Isolation is very good though - you won't hear that much of the outside world.

The soundstage is not flat. The headphones do bring out the bass without question, but it is NOT overwhelming, and the sound as a whole is pretty well balanced. You can hear highs and mids without trouble -- I've certainly heard parts of songs I didn't know existed before! It's a vast improvement on my pair of in-ear earphones, which I'd previously thought were pretty good.

If like me, you've been debating about getting a pair of these for a while, just take the plunge. The only thing you'll regret is you didn't get them before now!

Beats headphones seem to attract polarised views. Some people love them; some people hate them.

I have used many different makes and types of headphones over the years. Nearly all of them seem to have some type of drawback - don't fit in my ears securely; uncomfortable; flimsy cable that tangles; poor bass response; harsh sound that jars after a while; fiddly controls; etc.

For me, these Beats headphones are simply the best I have ever used. From the moment you see the box, you get a high expectation that inside is a quality product. And there is. The headphones are inside a soft carry case. Some people have said they would prefer a hard case. I find the soft case is just fine. The headphones unfold with a satisfying 'click'. There is plenty of adjustment for different size heads. The cable is colour coordinated with the headphones, which is a nice touch. It is thicker than many other headphones so it is less likely to get all tangled up. It is a very decent length. It plugs into both the audio device and the headphones themselves with 3.5mm jack connectors. So the cable can be easily replaced if it breaks.

They are on (not over) ear. Other headphones of this type can push hard on the ears and become uncomfortable after a while. These headphones are really comfortable. The ear pads are very soft and grip with enough pressure to keep them securely in place but not so much as to be uncomfortable. I find that after a while I almost forget I have them on.

The sound quality is fantastic. You get a rich, full sound with a very solid but not overpowering bass. Some people say that they have heard new things in familiar songs when using these headphones. I have always been sceptical about this. Well I am wrong.

They have a really nice crisp and bass sound. However, after more than half an hour of wear they start to hurt your ears because they're so tight. The beats carry case you get with it is pointless, it was way to small for the headphones and there is no place to put the lead, so because of this my case is still in the box and has only been used once as it's just not practical. Overall, they're not bad headphones but they're not good either, for the price you pay you're literally only paying for the brand. Much better headphones on the market if you're looking just for music quality and comfort.

Iv always held off buying Beats because i know them to be more a fashion accessory. But im fed up with the 4hr charge for my wireless Jabra Rox so iv jumped on the Beats-bandwagon and opted for these cabled gym favourites! Iv noticed the price fluctuate on these so managed to grab them at £119.00 compared to the usual £169, (although iv known them to hit £99 on occassion). For £119 which i paid im happy with the purchase, anything more than no. Just hope i dont regret buying these over the wireless version!

Had mince for 3 months before sound stopped coming through the right ear-cup, when fully functional they are a good pair of headphones and sound great. Although you cannot use them for long periods at a time as there is a strong clamping force and may be a problem for people with glasses. Hopefully i can get a refund for my broken pair but i wouldnt strongly suggest these as they are commonly known to have the same problem as my pair. 3 out of 5.
