Better than Beats By Dre, 7 Feb. 2013
I own a pair of Beats by Dr Dre Studio's and decided to pick up the Street by 50's, and honestly, I haven't touched my beats since i got these. The bass in these headphones is crisp and clear and they deliver exceptional sound quality overall. In comparison to the Beats at high volumes, the bass doesn't distort any of the music and the mids and highs stay balanced. They sound amazing. On the other hand, the Beats don't offer the same quality of sound at high volumes. The sound becomes distorted and muddy and the bass is too overpowering.
Another positive about the Street by 50's is that they offer great durability. I can bend and twist them a lot more than i can the Beats. The Street by 50's may not fold like the Beats but i haven't found this to be much of a problem. I have still been able to take them with me to college and the pouch they come with is adequate to protect them from getting damaged whilst in your bag or rucksack, however i don't think the pouch will protect the headphones from a drop. If this is an area of concern to you, a hard carry case is available from the official website for these headphones [...].
These headphones are worth every penny and I would definitely recommend them. They offer an unparalleled mixture between style and good quality audio.
