These Beats over-ear noise-cancelling headphones are nothing short of great! Say what you want about Beats, but I've used all the competitors flagship headphones, and these are priced at what they are for a reason! Other headphones in this price bracket, and higher don't really impress me the way the Beats Studio do. Very crisp highs, beautiful mids, and very tight and controlled low end. If you want to hear the full frequency range the way you were meant to, listen to your favorite mix on these!
