I recently met a gentleman walking around the mall wearing Monster Beats By Dr. Dre Studio headphones and could not resist the urge to ask him how they sounded. He was kind enough to let me have quick listen to his Beats headphones and to say I was impressed would be quite an understatement. Checking out the sound and experiencing them for myself made me want to write this Beats By Dr. Dre Review, so I hope if helps those looking for a little more information on them.
From the look, feel, design, and most importantly, the superb sound quality, it is apparent that Monster and Dr. Dre and their teams have put together a classic line of high-quality headphones aimed toward music lovers and hip hop fanatics, specifically. The official statement is that these headphones have taken over three years of research and development before they were released to the public.
This is obvious once you hear what come through these Beats noise cancelling headphones. The bass sounds are rich and full, the mid levels and vocals are clear, clean and sharp, and the highs are crisp and separate without ever distorting or sounding tinny.
But this Beats by Dr. Dre line is not without any faults, i have to admit. There have been many reports of the plastic cracking, and you absolutely have to remember to turn them off when you’re finished listening to them or you’ll spend a ton of money on batteries.
The main competitor brands of the Beats By Dre headphones are industry leaders such as Bose and Sennheiser, so you know these bad boys have really been put through a lot of testing and development to match the criteria. I honestly couldn’t see Dr. Dre putting his name on a studio product that wouldn’t live up to his own high quality standards.
But like I said above, these headphones are not all perfect. With the upcoming release of the Monster Beats Pro series many of the issues that people have with the lower end models have been addressed and taken care of.
