The Headphones With A Monstrous Beat

The Headphones With A Monstrous Beat

The Monster Beat headphones is one of those products that’s named after what it truly delivers: a powerful bass. Deeply powerful. Heart-stoppingly, jaw-shakingly powerful. Knock-the-paint-off-your-walls powerful. You get the idea.

There is no set of noise canceling set headphones, and quite possibly no set of headphones of any sort, that delivers music with as much thump. If you are a music purist, delight in your trebles, or a big fan of audiobooks then you’d be better off reading our review of the overall best noise canceling headphones. If you are a connoisseur of rock, techno, hip-hop or some other beat-heavy genre, and relish in your bass, then these are the headphones for you.

Our other impressions of these headphones:

• Comfort. Excellent. We wish the headband was a little softer but the inside of the ear pieces are comfortably padded (see pics, below) and the ear cups are large enough not to pinch your ears.

• Looks. The marketing for these headphones plays up hip-hop master Dr. Dre’s role in designing these headphones. Despite that, we love the sleek black look of the Monster Beats. They come off as sophisticated with calling attention to themselves. These headphones are marketed as being “scratch resistant” and we didn’t experience anything to contradict that. However, the Monster Beats are very much not smudge resistant. In fact, they seem to be smudge magnets. (No wonder they come with a cleaning cloth!)

• Portability. The Monster Beats come with a high quality travel case; the headphones fold down to fit within it. Once in its case, the Monster Beats are a little smaller than the Bose Quiet Comfort 2 headphones but not as small as the Quiet Comfort 3s or the Sennheiser PXC 450s.

• Other Features. The Monster Beats come with two cords, one regular cord and another with a microphone and answer button that turn your Monster Beats into a cell phone headset. (The headset functionality works with most cell phones, including the iPhone). Both cords are 4 feet (1.25 meters) long, which is perfect for portable use but for your home stereo you’ll need to buy an extension cord.

• Price. There are no other headphones that produce this much base; the Monster Beats’ price—around $350 or £270— reflects that.

    I agree that beats quality is superb! The price seems to high for me but I love music and this one is really on the top of it’s class. Most music lovers use this and they satisfied with it!

    The Beats also appear using a washing cloth to preserve them looking good

    These headphones are horrible, absolute trash. The headphones may look nice, but they have the WORST sound quality I have ever heard. Mids and trebles are trash, they sound as if there is a wet rag over the speaker, and while the bass is admittedly decent, is nowhere near as described in product descriptions or any online or otherwise reviews. I bought these recently and the second I plugged them into my i-pod, i thought the headphones were broken, then I again tried my computer. AWFUL SOUND, so I took them back to the store and said they were broken, the clerk then asked what the problem was, I stated that they must be defective or broken because they sounded horrid, he then plugged them in, listened, said, “these aren’t broken, that’s what they are supposed to sound like, the mids and trebs are intended to be bogged out”. Thank you Dr. Dre for flooding the audio market with a piece of filth!

    I had exactly the same feeling when I went to the store yesterday. It really depends on what sort of music that you listen to. First of all I pluged it in my iphone and played Jayz’s Empire of the State. The bass was great, it did a pretty good job because all you need from this type of music was “Boom Boom Yeah Yeah Yeah”.

    I then chose another soft,slow,relax song by Olivia Ong,the headphone fxxk the whole song up. Any simple beats from the background would cover the human voice and all you hear is broken sound,sounded like Olivia caught the flu.
