This pricier, distinctive-looking model from Monster--offered in black, white and several striking colors (such as orange, pink and purple)--delivers very good sound quality and very good active noise reduction, but the combination on/over-the-ear fit may be cramped for those with bigger ears. quote

The unique and stylish Monster Beats by Dr. Dre headphones offer solid audio, useful accessories, and a look that's anything but copycat. For fashion-forward folks with cash to spare, they're a great option.

While these headphones are priced a bit high (retail $349.95), they are definitely among the best in their class. As Dr. Dre said, “People aren’t hearing all the music” when it comes to regular headphones. With the Dr. Dre beats you’ll hear things in your favorite tunes that you never knew...

The Beats are perfect for semi-audiophiles. Not only do you get great sounding headphones, but they feel comfortable and feel great. I'm not a fan of the price, nor am I of the materials but should you be willing to drop a few bones, I think it's worth it. Some nit-picks is that after a...

Got the Studio's in white as a gift. So far, best headphones I've ever owned. They feel really comfortable and I think they look great. However, the sturdiness of them is questionable. I took extremely good care of mine, only really used them at home, and the plastic by the screws...

These are fine if you listen to hip hop or rap all of the time, but if you have any other music in your collection (classical, singer/songwriter, acoustic stuff), the bass is way too overpowered. Plus they are made out of crap materials and break all of the time. They are made by monster, what...

The Beats by Dre sound great, however I have found a few draw backs. You cannot wear them for any length of time if you have bigger ears, they pin them back and start to hurt after a little while. Also they tend to get warm fast inside and it is not comfortable at all, they need ventilation in...
