Guetta partnered with Beats to create the Mixr headphones. His vision was to create something specifically tailored for DJ use. In an interview Guetta says "The sound is better than anything I’ve experienced before because it doesn’t distort no matter what volume I am playing music at. They’re easy to travel with because they’re so light and compact."more
In this photo of Jay Hardway performing, the blue Mixr headphones can be spotted on the far right of the shot, just beneath a cooling fan. It appears to be plugged in just in front of Jay himself, so it's likely he used them during his set, as no other headphones are easily visible in the shot.more
Got this as a present a couple of years ago, and was immediately amazed at the quality of the sound. Gave a new perspective on some of my favourite tracks, as I was now able to hear subtle elements a lot clearer.
I use these headphones on the road,because they are pretty good. The sound quality,material quality and the utility is perfect. In an interview David Guetta says "The sound is better than anything I’ve experienced before because it doesn’t distort no matter what volume I am playing music at. They’re easy to travel with because they’re so light and compact."
I'll be honest. It's not my favourite. And it's not even my first Beats by Dr. Dre. I already have a Pro. But this one was made in collab with David Guetta, and I have sort of made it a point of buying headphones that DJs helped make. Coming to this, it's a lot lighter than my pro, and that makes it easier to take out when I'm travelling. And it's got brand name. But sound quality is not what you would expect. The bass is amazing, but that's where it ends really.
Do I regret buying it? No. Guetta designed it, so that makes it okay for me. But will I recommend it? No.
