Amazon

Battery

Battery:
"Seems to have a battery problem."
_
"It's always coming unplugged and if it's left plugged in, the chargeable battery goes dead."
_
"I am very disappointed that these headphones have to have a charged battery."
_
"Junk.. first time battery fully died never worked again."
_
"I gotta say the only 2 things I dislike about them is when the battery dies so does your enjoyment of the music you're listening to."
_
"The only real complaint I have is the fact a $250-$300 pair of WIRED headphones can and will die whilst plugged in and force you to set them aside while they charge is annoying; however, they do charge fairly quickly and the battery lasts me more than a day per charge."
_
"Really good sound, great battery life."
_
"Battery life is really good, it charges super fast and you can even charge through your computer with the USB cable."
_
"Pros: no batteries unlike the old Studios Excellent noise canceling (big issue for the old studios)Cons: OMG THESE THINGS ARE UNCOMFY AS ANYTHING."

_
"I'm no audiophile, so I can't tell a flat response curve from a heavily boosted bass, so they sound good to me, but the not working with no battery thing is disconcerting."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"a few months down the line, the loose hinge caused the plastic to deteriorate, to the point that the plastic starting chipping off and exposing the metal hingethen, the bluetooth started unsyncing from my phone and laptop, so, i sent them to beats for repair or replacement and beats refused to honor the warrantythey claimed that the cosmetic damage was too bad and they said they didn't know if the cosmetic damage caused the bluetooth to break or whether the bluetooth broke on its owneven when i explained that the cosmetic damage was also their problem, the rep told me that these headphones are solidly built and that he had never seen them come apart like this before.. however, i corrected him about that, and he did admit that they weren't solidly built, but he still claimed that there was no way for him to know whether i broke the plastic or the plastic broke on its ownnow, they want $200 to replace them.. cheaper than the $400 i initially paid, but in the end, they get to keep my broke ones, which they'll repair for $5 and resale for $400, and they get another $200 from me..so, if you notice any type of issues, whether the cushion is coming out or there's a crack or the hinge is loose, etc, send them right back.. even if it's the first weekthese are very delicate headphones and the build is very cheap, so take care of them and monitor every aspectas for sound quality, they sound great if you're into loud music with heavy bass"
_
"And fast shipping, but got confused because I thought they were Bluetooth and they're not..."
_
"Not Bluetooth accessible ... big disappointment"
_
"definitely worth it although i was fooled thinking they would be Bluetooth but i guess thats my mistake for not reading carefully"
_
"The Bose qc15 are not wireless and use batteries (which I HATE) the qc3 are rechargeable not bluetooth and don't use a usb, they some weird lego looking piece that has a specialized charger and you have to unplug it from the headphone and plug it into the charger, it was odd honestly and a hassle."
_
"I was going to get the Bluetooth version, but I liked these so much that I am going to keep them."
_
"They're enjoying the best of all world with their music an the Bluetooth for the phone."
_
"Its fine but with Bluetooth and mp3 player combined makes it 5 star, good product if u using it in train, jogging etc"

Button

Button:
"Well, not necessarily - there's a small, hard to find button, that you need to press for a few seconds and they turn on or off using that as well."
_
"The rechargeable batteries make having to carry batteries a non-needed hassle as well as being able to push a button and see how much battery I have left before heading out for an evening or working from home is a great asset."
_
"The power switch battery check button has to be pressed and held for a few seconds, and I found that annoying."
_
"This is absurd, as you can simply hold down the power button on the side for a few seconds to turn them off and on (also turning the ANC hiss off and on), regardless of the cable being in or not."
_
"Sennheiser- nice cord, push to talk button (temporarily mutes NC and sound which is great for interruptions on airplanes).4.)"
_
"Love these headphones, they have a mute button and 2 different plugs."
_
"The rechargeable batteries make having to carry batteries a non-needed hassle as well as being able to push a button and see how much battery I have left before heading out for an evening or working from home is a great asset."
_
"Buttons & remotes all in comfortable places."
_
"The packaging is nice, liked the mute button feature on the left earphone but although the sound doesn't leak as much with these, the sound quality is mediocre for the price."

Cable

Cable:
"the best rock headphones ever bar none price not withstandingi used to be an audiophile go to all the shows i even own older apagee speakers with bryston electronics and good shotgun cable which cost a fortune no doubt good audio is expensivebut what is good audio i ask lolwell is it found in the studio where they use close field monitors and adhere to a cost budget or perhaps studio headphones like the m 50s wow do they sound great perfect is a better word but dull dull dull the studios and the monster studio beats which i also own are alive they speak to me in a language i can understand the language of the venue weather i am at the roxy in los angeles or the greek theatre or even the rose bowl that is what i was brought up on that alive sound one gets even from the lowest bar to a high scale club the studio beats are audio reality to me and nothing that i have heard up to and over 300 the origional price compares or put this way can take me to my favorite music hall like the studio beats they excel in two very important places dynamic range and transient response perhaps the v mota m 100s come a bit close but for the same price the studios have faster drivers transient response is amazing and dynamic range is off the charts anyway when was the last time any of you were in a sound studio very sterile places lol and what did you listen with headphones or near field monitors bought on a budget i might add if i wanted a microscope i would buy one i am not out to analyze my music take it apart i am out to replicate the sound i am accustomed to the live sound of any venue either a lone piano in a room or a rock band at anaheim stadium and the studios excel in doing just that and as for the audiophile which i was once a member of that club what do they know about real music live music except for the concert hall and in that hall the best middle row seats cause if your on the sides there are all sorts of aucustic problems you encounter beats are given a bum rap because the audiophile can't tolerate real live electronic rock and roll do you know that i have never been in a room and listened to an oboe or bassoon i never cared to i want my rock to spin my ears around and rip my head off like watching peter tosh at the greek in los angeles and i want it done at any volume and on top of that beats come with a tolerable cable i have 9 pairs of phones and not one has the origional cable except for the studios two that is one cable that compliments the phones my hat goes off to beats for remembering that the cable is the path to great sound i use the samsung galaxy phone with the music player power amp of course and i am taken to wherever the producer imagines i should go with the music dont let anyone fool you i will dare to say that for 300 the origional price one will experience as close to rock reality as one can get they are well worth 300 maybe more cause i am not in the market for dull perfection lol thank you lillian ps note i did not mention looks or any of the other non audio aspects of the phones the klipsh corner horns are monstrosities but i dare one to find a more realistic alive speaker thanks"

"Only dissapointed that I can't use the 2nd aux cord with the calls and stuff on it since I'm team android."
_
"All she did was pull the red cord out and broke the left piece clear in half...so I will be purchasing another brand next time."
_
"It says (like new) but The main headphone cable is damaged."
_
"THE BAD: The only problem I have found with these headphones is that the cord must be taken care of."
_
"But, my cable with the mic on just broke off."
_
"Later, Ill send a picture of the black cord as well, because its not on me (Im using the red one now)."
_
"High end box, thick cord, great packaging, solid construction."

Charging

Charging:
"the fact that you have to charge these by plugging them in to an outlet is annoying."
_
"That is really annoying to have to charge them when they are wired."
_
"- charging is annoying- sound quality is average- they are heavy- head band hurts after few minutes of use- noise canceling is nothing extra special- this is a product of great marketing but far from the quality for the given priceSpend your money on brands like sennheiser or AKG if you want quality for your money"
_
"Ok Head phones the beats studio were broke from the charging port when i got these headphones otherwise the head phones were in ok condition"
_
"The usb charger was missing (both the cable and the power adapter) and the sound is unbalanced between the two sides: the right is louder than the left one."

"terrible won't keep a charge right out of the box."
_
"Couldn't ask for anything better and if you have a iPhone they sound perfect just got them today and they charge fast and last long"

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"great sound but if you have money go with Bose quiet comfort with $299 , but if you dont , like me , this is the best second choice"
_
"Like some other people have said, they feel pretty sturdy (weary of the negative reviews, I was still incredibly careful with them) and comfortable, but I wasn't blown away by the sound quality."
_
"Pros:- Good looking- Decent, though not great sound- Feel quite comfortable on my head (though not as good as say Audio-Technica ATH-AD700)- Gadgety (i. e. with innovative, though not necessarily useful features)Cons:- Require charging- Batteries don't even last a full day- Make noise even when not in use- Don't work without battery- Batteries aren't replaceable (need to carry an external charger if you expect to use them for more than 6 hours)- Turning them on off is really clunky (either by disconnecting the cable from headphones or by doing acrobatics in the dark with the small secret button)- The power supply is noisyI really wanted to like these, but I'm afraid these would just end up being an everyday annoyance, so I'll have to see about returning them."
_
"The sound is good enough for a non-expert to not be able to tell the difference, they are comfortable, the sound cancelling seems to work ok and they look good."
_
"I have never seen so many people complain about a thing that doesn't effect comfort or quality of music on listening to."
_
"Many people say that these are uncomfortable but i can wear these all day with comfort."
_
"They're extremely comfortable, and the noise-reduction function is amazing."
_
"They super comfortable and they look great."
_
"Comfortable and great sounding!"
_
"I fly about 100k miles yearly, so comfort and durability are paramount."
_
"comfortable & works well"

Control

Control:
"They were good headphones besides the inline controls constantly failing."
_
"Cons: Short cord, no volume control on headset, not comfortable on ears."
_
"You can get different length cords for different uses and the headphones come with an additional cord for use with your phone (mic, audio control).This isn't the greatest pair of headphones, but I like them."
_
"Extremely disappointed in the quality control of this item."
_
"Two dead headsets is statistically improbable unless Beats has a quality or a control problem."
_
"Only downside, volume control on cable only works for Apple Devices."
_
"Noise cancelation,comfortability is not at par with Bose but is perfect match for my e_drums and outside noise control."
_
"Also, the controls on the mic cord are iPhone compatible only."
_
"They were good headphones besides the inline controls constantly failing."
_
"In less than 1 year I had two Solo Beats severely damaged, The earpad are terrible lasting less than 5 months, it's sad that such so expensive product doesn't have the minimum quality controls to ensure their satisfactory use."
_
"The remote control mic works great, at least with my iPad."

Design

Design:
"Cons: annoying low hum due to noise cancellation feature, over-ear design was a bit uncomfortable, was not able to wear for very long, have to unplug cord every time you're done using or it will drain the battery"
_
"More details follow, but overall, they don't meet my needs as a traveler, and the design flaws are disappointing in a product that charges a premium for ID."
_
"These ended up disappointing me in a number of categories including comfort, battery life (and dependence on battery combined with the auto on off that is not reliable), design, and sound quality."
_
"Only drawback is they're not designed to be active while using them."
_
"Design- if you are a person with long hair then beware, hair that falls inbetween the top of the cup and the headband will be wedged into the pinch point when removing headphones."
_
"It also has a great noise canceling design and system that activates when you need it to, completely isolating you into your own world of music."
_
"Beautifully designed and fantastic sound."
_
"They need to design these to be able to turn off the noise canceling."
_
"Design - Perfect!"
_
"Its a rip off you can buy better headphones under 100.Their only good because of their design."

Earphone

Earphone:
"Then two weeks later, the hinge on the other earphone broke."
_
"Doesn't matter once the music plays.2) The first pair I had developed an issue in the right earphone after 3 weeks, it started making this weird rumbling noise even without anything playing."
_
"Im so disappointed because i bought my earphone Beats four months ago and roughly three months used and now the spume which protected the ear is damaged."
_
"I was very skeptical about spending so much money on earphones but now that I have them I can really hear what i had been missing."

Fit

Fit:
"I loved loved loved these headphones great loud bass,comfortable fit and stylist color UNTIL my 5 year old broke them."
_
"* The travel case is hard and oddly shaped, so it does not easily fit in a backpack or travel bag."
_
"There are two disadvantages of the headphones; First, the case only fits the headphones so you have to separately carry the charger and cords for the headphones."
_
"They Just nailed the fit of these thingsSoundYou'll hear a lot of people complaining about the slight hiss you hear with these headphones, and its true there is a slight hiss, but you honestly honestly honestly only hear it when there is no music playing."
_
"What fits me perfectly may not fit you well at all."
_
"These headphones sound great, fit great and feel great."
_
"The fit is ok, sound is decent, noise cancelling is ok, but overall for the money I spent, I should of saved a little more and bought a pair of Bose."
_
"While wearing them your ears fit in the earpieces to give you full comfort of the headphones and to give you full coverage of sound."
_
"Sounds great fits comfortably and looks sweet ! "
_
"Sennheiser- Very comfortable, will fit almost any size ears."

Headphone

Headphone:
"I really hate to have to return these because I really do like them but i need headphones I can watch shows, movies, play games, and listen to music without my blood pressure rising from hearing loud static noise in my ears."
_
"I was hoping that for such expensive headphones, they would be of good quality but i guess i was wrong"
_
"I'm not going to trash on these headphones and say they are terrible."
_
"This isn't an upscale headphone the price should be around 75$ that's at the level it's at...you can get a much better headphone than this for 150$...but I don't know this if having the ability to take calls on your headphone is important than it may be worth the money...far as the sound goes the bass is riddiculus and everything else is echo and really tinny...clear but very tinny...you definitely don't hear that warmth...there were problems with the other generations of Beats since they came out in 2008 and there still are problems...again if you like the phone ascept then it's for you...if you do research beats will never come up as a superior headphone and these are right at the top in expensive...when they should be at a lower level, they don't even give you a 1 4 plug for all the money you spent for the headphones...pass this one up."
_
"a few months down the line, the loose hinge caused the plastic to deteriorate, to the point that the plastic starting chipping off and exposing the metal hingethen, the bluetooth started unsyncing from my phone and laptop, so, i sent them to beats for repair or replacement and beats refused to honor the warrantythey claimed that the cosmetic damage was too bad and they said they didn't know if the cosmetic damage caused the bluetooth to break or whether the bluetooth broke on its owneven when i explained that the cosmetic damage was also their problem, the rep told me that these headphones are solidly built and that he had never seen them come apart like this before.. however, i corrected him about that, and he did admit that they weren't solidly built, but he still claimed that there was no way for him to know whether i broke the plastic or the plastic broke on its ownnow, they want $200 to replace them.. cheaper than the $400 i initially paid, but in the end, they get to keep my broke ones, which they'll repair for $5 and resale for $400, and they get another $200 from me..so, if you notice any type of issues, whether the cushion is coming out or there's a crack or the hinge is loose, etc, send them right back.. even if it's the first weekthese are very delicate headphones and the build is very cheap, so take care of them and monitor every aspectas for sound quality, they sound great if you're into loud music with heavy bass"

_
"The bass, isn't good either, yes it's heavy... but it's not full bodied."
_
"Long term listening becomes uncomfortable because of the pressure the heavy bass puts on your eardrum."
_
"Overall it is heavy and it does not feel good to have the heavy stuff over your head and ears."
_
"Contrary to popular belief no noise cancelling headphones and totally block out something as loud as a plane engine, but these do block out noise and do it wellHighs Mids and Lows, in the past a lot of people complained that beats were too bass heavy, and depending on your taste in music that may have been true."

Hissing

Hissing:
"Unfortunately however it's also a noise generator, it has hissing sound when turned on."
_
"It's hard to explain, but it makes a hissing sound and it feels like it puts pressure in your ears."
_
"I bought ,my beats on November got them in no time, now I've had them for at least a month and I'm loving them great materials, good build quality, great sound, there's a little hissing sound you get from the ANC(active noise canceling) but it's easily overlooked when you are listing to some music, but that's basically it the hissing is horrible when you try to use them to see a movie in an already quiet place and as you can't disable the ANC you should stick to use them for music and nothing more, but as I said I loved them, maybe because I got some other headphones for movies and videos, but as far as to music it is they are the best you can get."
_
"Passive noise reduction hissing is sometimes annoying but not a deal breaker."
_
"When music stops, there is an annoying hissing sound."
_
"With this, it does block out a lot of outside noise (NOT nearly as good as Bose), but it creates a small white hissing noise that is ALWAYS ON."
_
"Though Beats Studio headphone music sounds great but the hissing sound its the deal breaker for me."
_
"I bought ,my beats on November got them in no time, now I've had them for at least a month and I'm loving them great materials, good build quality, great sound, there's a little hissing sound you get from the ANC(active noise canceling) but it's easily overlooked when you are listing to some music, but that's basically it the hissing is horrible when you try to use them to see a movie in an already quiet place and as you can't disable the ANC you should stick to use them for music and nothing more, but as I said I loved them, maybe because I got some other headphones for movies and videos, but as far as to music it is they are the best you can get."
_
"The constant hissing of the noise cancelling that is moaned about is not a problem and shouldn't be one."
_
"However, there is a clear and quite audible hissing sound when noise activation is turned on, you can even hear it when music is played low ... kind of defeats the purpose, don't you think?"

"They're light and robust."
_
"As for comfort they are surprising light and are comfortable."
_
"They are light, compact, comfortable and solidly constructed.."
_
"Light weight and great sound"
_
"The little battery check switch can also be used to power-off the headphones so that you don't run down the battery, but the power light is pretty dim and you need to look closely in a lit room to be sure it's off."

Listening

Listening:
"The problem is that they are completley unusable for anything except for listening to music."
_
"I got these headphones taking the risk that they were going to be a bad investment but I was wrong everyone I talk to about these headphones told me the worst that the didn't work that they were terrible headphones but they were wrong they are great headphones but they are not good with sound but that can be adjusted with an equalizer when your listening to music the are enjoyable you can adjust them to your headsize and it's great because then they fit me just fine there are no problems with these I have dropped min twice 4ft above the ground on concrete but nothing has happened to them I thought they were fragile but the really aren't I did not get but a few scratches and very small blemishes with the drop but that Did not affect the sound at all I love that the ones I got were well made you know sometimes people might get a bad product but you can return them and get another one there is nothing bad with these I myself had to get and return other headphones like these until I got these I also love how they cancel the sound some headphones make your ears hurt with the cancellation system but these are exquisite but I really think I made a great buy and will be looking forward to buying other beats products."

"I have been listening to MJ's Invincible and was disgusted with how terrible it sounded through virtually all my headphones."
_
"Pertaining to sound quality they're perfect for their intended purpose: comfortably listening to online lecture for a few hours at a time, then music afterward while studying."
_
"Great battery life (6-10 hours of continued listening)Cons1."
_
"The cushions are comfortable, and ideal for long listening on flights, car rides and other long enduring time frames."
_
"These are probably great for listening to music while you're working out because there's such a boost in the bass."
_
"Regarding the price for regular listener nothing is justified over $99 for a pair of plastic headphones,no matter the brand and sound quality, but if the money is not the main problem ....regular music listening."

Material

Material:
"A little bit tooooo much for flimsy material."
_
"Please look at their BOM, there's like $11 worth of material in these headphones."
_
"Beats continues to scam people with these ridiculous prices but fails to back them up with good quality sound, Second, when i opened this in the mail, the plastic material on the headphones as well as the cushioning were falling apart, i dont know if this was just my product but it still proved to be a pain trying to stick it back together."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Wire with in-line mic was faulty however second line worked perfectly."
_
"But, my cable with the mic on just broke off."
_
"It sounds like you are in a 12 by 12 sound proof room with a guy at a poduim speaking directly to you through a microphone:) BUT it does not sound great with Music."
_
"You can get different length cords for different uses and the headphones come with an additional cord for use with your phone (mic, audio control).This isn't the greatest pair of headphones, but I like them."
_
"Yes, it works but about as good as any accessory mic during calls but not quite as good a decent headset."
_
"Also, the controls on the mic cord are iPhone compatible only."
_
"I figure a little sweat must have messed the mic up..The sounds are great, but the construction is bad.. just get the wireless ones if you plan on sweating a little bit."
_
"The remote control mic works great, at least with my iPad."
_
"Even if I'm not using the mic, as best as I can tell, it doesn't hurt anything for it to be there."
_
"another thing you should watchout for is the vocal can tend to be a bit piercing depending on the song or volume u have it set to ofc this is not a problem since when u talk in a mic your voice can be piercing."

Music

Music:
"Cons- Sound cuts out after 15 seconds of play time- Loud crack noise and then music no longer plays- was dirty had to wipe clean-Did not have my sons big gift on christmas-Had to order from another supplier (Amazon this time! )"
_
"Some people complain about the music quality for he price but I use these on a daily basis and I think they sound great."
_
"I got these headphones taking the risk that they were going to be a bad investment but I was wrong everyone I talk to about these headphones told me the worst that the didn't work that they were terrible headphones but they were wrong they are great headphones but they are not good with sound but that can be adjusted with an equalizer when your listening to music the are enjoyable you can adjust them to your headsize and it's great because then they fit me just fine there are no problems with these I have dropped min twice 4ft above the ground on concrete but nothing has happened to them I thought they were fragile but the really aren't I did not get but a few scratches and very small blemishes with the drop but that Did not affect the sound at all I love that the ones I got were well made you know sometimes people might get a bad product but you can return them and get another one there is nothing bad with these I myself had to get and return other headphones like these until I got these I also love how they cancel the sound some headphones make your ears hurt with the cancellation system but these are exquisite but I really think I made a great buy and will be looking forward to buying other beats products."
_
"That doesn't bode well...Once you turn them on and start playing music - it sounds good, although I still hear a little bit of that noise in the background."
_
"I will keep them based upon the fact that I do music but will tell you it misses it's major bump! "
_
"I gotta say the only 2 things I dislike about them is when the battery dies so does your enjoyment of the music you're listening to."
_
"a few months down the line, the loose hinge caused the plastic to deteriorate, to the point that the plastic starting chipping off and exposing the metal hingethen, the bluetooth started unsyncing from my phone and laptop, so, i sent them to beats for repair or replacement and beats refused to honor the warrantythey claimed that the cosmetic damage was too bad and they said they didn't know if the cosmetic damage caused the bluetooth to break or whether the bluetooth broke on its owneven when i explained that the cosmetic damage was also their problem, the rep told me that these headphones are solidly built and that he had never seen them come apart like this before.. however, i corrected him about that, and he did admit that they weren't solidly built, but he still claimed that there was no way for him to know whether i broke the plastic or the plastic broke on its ownnow, they want $200 to replace them.. cheaper than the $400 i initially paid, but in the end, they get to keep my broke ones, which they'll repair for $5 and resale for $400, and they get another $200 from me..so, if you notice any type of issues, whether the cushion is coming out or there's a crack or the hinge is loose, etc, send them right back.. even if it's the first weekthese are very delicate headphones and the build is very cheap, so take care of them and monitor every aspectas for sound quality, they sound great if you're into loud music with heavy bass"
_
"High quality and great music."
_
"I have sensitive ears and I listen to music close to everyday in these with no problems"
_
"This thing does a great job not only at playing loud bassy music, but does an amazing job of giving you such clear uncompressed sound."
_
"They filter out a lot of the external sounds and allow you to pause the music if someone is talking to you and that is a great feature."

Noise

Noise:
"For $300 you would think they would add an on off switch for noise cancelling but unfortunately they did not."
_
"Cons- Sound cuts out after 15 seconds of play time- Loud crack noise and then music no longer plays- was dirty had to wipe clean-Did not have my sons big gift on christmas-Had to order from another supplier (Amazon this time! )"
_
"I started to realize that they really weren't worth the money, and I was almost prepared to live with that until I realized how incredibly annoying the active noise cancelation was."
_
"The headphones produce ambient noise to try to counteract outside noise (which doesn't do the job very well in the first place), but the white noise really interferes with the music you're listening to."
_
"The powered noise cancellation makes these headphones weak as hell, got them yesterday, returned them today."
_
"if you want good beats go, mixr, or studio pro, they don't have powered noise cancellation, but they are a closed back system, and they cancel noise fine, and are way superior when it comes to sound."
_
"It also has a great noise canceling design and system that activates when you need it to, completely isolating you into your own world of music."
_
"The noise canceling feature is great at the office when I want to cancel out the ambient noise."
_
"Love these head phones, unbelievable noise cancelling feature, music sounds clear and crisp however, my first pair broke after three weeks :( and I can only say Amazon were first class in their response."

Packaging:
"When I received them the padding on the headphones looked used and dirty even though it was still in package."
_
"I am thoroughly disappointed in packaging and care that beats gave when sending out my headphones."
_
"The only thing specified wrong with them was packaging damage."
_
"But I Didn't Approve Of The FedEx Guy Leaving The Product On My Porch In The Rain I Live In Sketchy Neighborhood Doesn't Take A Rocket Scientist To Understand If It's Graffti All Around The Neighborhood it's Probably Not The Best Place To Leave An New Unopened Package! "
_

"Strong plastics, good components, thick cord."

"Price is too high for the build quality - scratches easily and entirely made of plastic."

Power

Power:
"Power on when plugged in power off when not (super nice)6."
_
"The usb charger was missing (both the cable and the power adapter) and the sound is unbalanced between the two sides: the right is louder than the left one."
_
"This is absurd, as you can simply hold down the power button on the side for a few seconds to turn them off and on (also turning the ANC hiss off and on), regardless of the cable being in or not."
_
"It has no power, there missing accesories and the batteries are dead."
_
"The included accessories were okay, a decent hard case, a couple cables and a power cord."
_
"The little battery check switch can also be used to power-off the headphones so that you don't run down the battery, but the power light is pretty dim and you need to look closely in a lit room to be sure it's off."
_
"The mute function works well and you can power up the noise cancelling with out plugging in the audio cord."
_
"We did appreciate the power status light and a charge seems to last a good while as advertised."

Range

Range:
"I have decided that beats are the worst headphones available in their price range."
_
"The sound is better than cheap $20-$50 dollar headphones but not as good as some headphones in the $100 dollar range."
_
"Overall they are not a $300 pair of headphones, and never will be, they are at best should sell brand new for $110-150 range, thats where they should be."
_
"I've been playing with them trying them out on different types of music, comparing them to other headphones and these kind of fall in the good but not great range...which is unacceptable for the price tag of these things."
_
"and the bluetooth isn't very good constantly disconnects and has a max range of 20'."
_
"Took them to the dj mixer and used them for a couple hour set, NOPE they dont have rotating ear cups, sound quality is horrible for $300 set of headphones (they work in 100 range) and they feel like I am going to break them taking them on and off with anything but the upmost care."
_
"Great Mid High ranges (I use custom dsp software to enhance the sound)3."
_
"For $200 headphones, I wanted a deeper range and something more neutral in what sounds good."
_
"They're lightweight, offer great sound cancelling, great audio range, are very comfortable, and are perfect for the workplace, traveling, or working out."
_
"But I do own other pairs in that price range and these easily compete."
_
"The Beats sound is clear in the higher ranges and the bass bumps in the lower ranges."

Video:
"The problem is if you want to watch a movie, tv show or anything that doesn't have constant sound the static noise from the noise cancelling will drive you crazy."
_
"I bought ,my beats on November got them in no time, now I've had them for at least a month and I'm loving them great materials, good build quality, great sound, there's a little hissing sound you get from the ANC(active noise canceling) but it's easily overlooked when you are listing to some music, but that's basically it the hissing is horrible when you try to use them to see a movie in an already quiet place and as you can't disable the ANC you should stick to use them for music and nothing more, but as I said I loved them, maybe because I got some other headphones for movies and videos, but as far as to music it is they are the best you can get."
_
"When the battery gets very low there is no warning all of sudden every thing goes dead silence, even when you are in the middle of watching a movie you have to stop you movie and charge the headphone."

_
"I listened to eyes on fire zeds dead remix on full volume and honestly it felt like I was having a dental procedure."
_
"WHAT EVER YOU DO DO NOT PUT YOUR VOLUME TO HIGH A LOT CAUSE IT MIGHT DAMAGE THE HEADPHONES."
_
"Unfortunately, Beats' definition of noise canceling is to just have the headphones create an unbearable static at low volumes."
_
"Instead, if I'm listening at work under low volume, I get to hear this delightful white noise accompanying my music."
_
"Virtually no sound escapes to annoy other people in the room, even at volumes too high for comfortable listening."
_
"I only need to turn the volume up a bit and the experience is amazing."
_
"But when there is no music playing or the music volume is low, the noise is pretty noticeable and distracting."
_
"I will say for an 'older' listener or those that like softer music, the Marshall Monitor's that I traded in for these had literally flawless mids (bose also sounds great at medium or low volume levels).If you worry about spending this kind of money, pick up the Sony MDRV55's for a ridiculous $59 right now."
