Away from your studio and need to judge your low end? Look no further. These cans can reveal all your low end sloppiness (or gold). Unfortunately, that's all these guys can do. That and look really cool.
Definitely not a pair of "Pro" headphones, the sound quality is alright but it's definitely not a pair of headphones for studio monitoring or referencing. The price is absolutely ridiculous and I would say you're paying more for the looks rather than the actual audio quality.
A gift from my dad (clearly he doesnt know much about these headphones :D) Bad highs, bad mids, Okay-ish bass and great build quality. Not preferable for studio monitoring only good for looks.
Its ok. I prefer other headphones though.
EDIT: Adding more stuff. Gonna be more detailed for the community.
Sound quality: These are the only Beats I will say the sound is ADEQUATE AT BEST. Not the best, but I will give it a passing score. My experience with beats is they pump up the bass all the way, but the high and mids usually suffer. If you are to buy beats, these are the ONLY ones i can recommend. And of course, its one of their higher models so mo' money. However for the price you can get something with MUCH better sound quality.
Comfortability: The ear cups just catch the top of my ears. The headband is pretty tight, so the ears push into your head quite hard. You can't have these on for a while. You'll find yourself pulling the ears open from time to time giving your ears some air to breath in.
Design: I am pretty impressed by the design. All that metal makes it look pretty durable and slick. If something is going to be expensive, it should AT LEAST LOOK IT right? So does it look pretty? Check. All the clueless chicks will drop their panties when they see these beats, and that's what they are for.
Giving it a 3, just because they are average at best.
expensive, and its sonic characteristics are indeed polarizing. the heavy low end is a personal choice, but the sturdy built is first class! i mainly use it as my headphones when DJing, and also to listen to flattened mp3 files on the iphone where the audio quality is not audiophile.
This is heaven. It is exceedingly good looking, the bass on this is terrifying on so many levels, and it's endorsed by a host of celebrities. What could possibly be bad about this? Well... it's really heavy (when compared to few other headphones that I have), and I can't wear it outside because my ears are sweaty after just ten minutes. But if you are in a controlled environment, it doesn't get any more complete than this
