    Still not great

    • Written by Joseph D from Hoboken

    I got these a few months ago. Wasn't impressed, but it was after the 14 day return period. They are marginally better than the cheaper ones and not headphones for a true audiophile. Not sure why I got these.

    Overrated and Overpriced

    • Written by Shaquan T from Stockbridge

    As someone who works with manipulating audio and has used multiple headphones I find that sound quality does not match the price at all. The stereo quality is very underwhelming when compared to other headphones that are cheaper. With other headphones, music has a fullness and clarity ,especially in the track panorama, that Beats Pro does not offer. Even the low end sound quality that the advertisments boast about is not on par with some cheaper headphones.

    Poor Build/Design Quality

    • Written by Lance S from OCONNOR

    Wife bought these as a present, the sound quality is almost perfect. BUT - the design of the USB socket is 3rd rate. There is no support for the female socket in the body of the earphones and it's simply soldered to a small board, It breaks off! Look it up.. Google - "Beats USB plug faulty" and check out the reguarly recurring theme. Appalling engineering design and now useless as Bluetooth headphones.

    Fine but better options exist

    • Written by John S

    These headphones work fine but their price is comical. They're basically $150 headphones marked up to $400. At $400 I could buy a set of Sennheiser HD600s or HD650s, or Monolith M1060s.

    The worst value in headphones

    • Written by Jonathan L from Hewlett

    They sound like premium airplane headphones, actually better put, like thumping trash, and i personally feel bad to anyone who got fleeced. If u don't trust me (which is understandable) look to any reputable reviewer to see what I mean. If u have any care where your money goes and you want premium high quality headphones made by a reputable and well respected company look at the Sennheiser momentum wireless, a generally well received pair of headphones with a a better feature set. Don't put your money into a product that simply wants to make the best margins for the company.

    These headphones sound half as good as the bose Q35. I see most people comparing them to Q25s which are older cheaper headphones that are 200 some odd dollars. The Bose Q35 are 50$ cheaper AND have replaceable parts. They have way better sound and are definitely better in comfort.

    Sound great, but broken headphones aren't good

    • Written by John W from Wilmington

    I purchased these at the Apple Store in San Francisco August 2015. I really didn't need them, but thought they sounded great and figured, what the heck. I ended up using them about 10 times over two years. This wasn't hard use, just sitting in my home office and listening to music. Well, I went to put them on today and they broke. Just from putting them on. So ridiculous. I had heard this was an issue and now i know it to be true. Disappointing thing is that I am sure Apple knows it to be true as well, but wouldn't make an exception for me and will not repair the headphones. In order to repair, it will cost roughy $160. Super glue will probably do the trick, but that is lame. This is the first time Apple as a company has let me down. As a result, I will NEVER buy Beats products again. Bose from here on out. Apple will still get me for iPhones, iPads and MacBook Pros, but never again for this defective, poorly built product.

    these headphones really hurt my ears and give me a headache. I mean my ears NOT my ear drums. the cushion does little to nothing and the inner part of the headphones which are hard just press so hard against my ears.

    Tried on Friends, want to throw them at a wall

    • Written by Michael O

    I have a pair of bose qc series headphones that are amazing. I was thinking about adding these beats to my collection, and then I tried on a friend's. First off, he had just bought them and the earcups were already separating. The bluetooth range was abysmal, and the sound quality worse. There was wayy to much muddy bass, drowning out everything else. They were super uncomfortable, and didn't really do anything else any better. I am much happier with my bose and sennheiser than I could have been with beats. Really, try anything else.
