These headphones are AMAZING, 27 Aug 2012
I rarely post any reviews here, but after having bought that product and reading all the negative reviews here, I just could not help it. The two most common negatives you will read about them are the poor sound isolation (people around you will hear what you are listening) and the high price tag. I could not care less about either one of these. I did not buy them so I can blast them in an air plane, and for all the other people out there - I don't given a damn whether they hear them or not. As per the price - it's heavy and it's part of a marketing scheme, etc, but that boils down to whether you can afford them or not.
On the positive note - I HAVE NOT HEARD BETTER SOUND ANYWHERE ELSE. Listening to the beats is like putting your head in a big stereo speaker and just having your head blasted. You will hear sounds and details that you haven't heard before, even if you had already listened that track a thousand times. When you connect them to a good amplifier and play them really loud, they will just blow you away. Them headphones start to vibrate and you get the feeling that you are inside a HAMMER vehicle with a 100K worth of music system in it. It's just no comparison to anything else. However, these headphones are mainly designed for HIP-HOP. I don't think you will get the same experience with a different type of music, but HEY- that's dr. DRE and you all know what he does. The quality of all the materials is just superb (unless you've bought the cheaper models or some fakes).
Bottom line is that these headphones are banging and you get the feeling that you are listening to music inside a car with some ultra expensive audio system in it. Great product!
