It’s not always easy to get excited about a pair of headphones at $400 AU, these headphones are definitely not for those looking for a bargain.
What are they?
The Beats by Dr . Dre are a luxury high-end pair of headphones designed for people who want to get every bit of sound from there tunes.
The Beats by Dr . Dre are a sweet looking set of headphones. Coming in your choice of silver, black, red, and gold you will most definitely turn heads when wearing these headphones.
Sound quality is nothing to scoff at, their appeal as eye Candy is undeniable. For audio enthusiasts and professional DJs like myself the Beats Studio headphones are a must.
The Beats by Dr . Dre may not be all about style, but you wouldn’t know that just by looking at them. If you wear these headphones in public, you will turn heads. The thick and padded glossy black headband descends seemingly seamlessly into the circles that hold each ear cup, which are oblong and padded in a leatherette material that is obscenely cushy. They also swivel slightly in their support in order to provide a comfortable fit.
Of course, a pair of headphones maybe gorgeous but if they don’t perform then your wasting your money.
luckily, this is not the case with the Beats Studio which offered an exceptionally–one might say shockingly –crisp response. Maybe I’m pigeonholing here, but I expected Dr . Dre’s headphones to be excessively heavy on the low end. That’s not to say there’s no bass–it does thumb–but the these ‘phones are nicely warm and balanced in the mids and truly impressive in their delivery of high-end detail.
At no point did I suffer through the muddiness that can ail bass-heavy headphones. The genres that really shine are electronic, dance, pop, hard rock, and hip-hop, although other genres are also very good for the most part.
No matter what the music, be forewarned that these headphones have fair amount of sound leakage, so your listening experience won’t be entirely private.
I’m happy to report however, that the Beats Studio headphones strike a good balance between the world outside and your music thanks to ANC ( active noise cancellation technology).
Conclusions and final thoughts
The Beats Studio headphones by Dr . Dre are a wonderful investment for anyone who is blind and serious about there sound.
If you DJ, are into sound engineering, or just want to drop some swag on some nice looking headphones that offer form and functionality in a sleek package then the Beats by Dr Dre . Studio headphones are for you.
lovely industrial design, insanely comfortable, well-made, compatible with most of today’s popular devices.
If your put off by the price of these headphones your probably not the target audience for Dr Dre . anyway. Look elsewhere. As they say you do get what you pay for.
