Beats by Dr. Dre Wireless On-Ear Headphones – – Five Stars

I was bought some beats for christmas and love them -so i decided the wireless version was ideal for my gadget mad mate for his 70th birthday. He loves them, has used em already to listen to his playlist (mainly quo) and loves the fact that he can cut the grass and still be ‘rocking all over the world’. He’s a bit disappointed that beats have been taken over (?) by apple but i think this product is brilliant and hope he gets lots of use out of it.

Great deep sounding wireless headphones, comfortable and work well with ipod.

Easy to pair to both my mac book pro and my ipad. In white they really turn heads. Take the dr’s medicine- you will not regret it. Here are the specifications for the Beats by Dr. Dre Wireless On-Ear Headphones –:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Controls on the earcup let you switch tracks without pulling out your music player
  • To recharge your headphones, just plug your Beats Wireless headphones into any computer or USB port
  • Stream audio from your laptop, or any other Bluetooth-enabled device from up to 30 feet away
  • Manage phone calls and music 
  • Powerful sound, as clear and strong as any wired headphone

Bought these for the gym as im quite a bass head and also wanted some wireless and light headphones to do weight training and running etc. There quite light and u don’t really feel them on your head while wearing them which is an advantage if you move around alot. The ear cups are quite plush and you don’t really feel the clamp like most on ear headphones until about 4 hours of wearing them. The bluetooth feature on these is quite good haven’t tested the range of it though so can’t comment. These sometimes cut out the music now and again when they’re interference or randomly like any other bluetooth headset but isn’t that bad though i find if you press the mute button twice you can continue from the track you were listening to with some delay. These headphones have quite a small opening at the cushions so don’t leak much sound and also are quite good at blocking passive noise at around 60% volume. These headphones are definately not for the average audiophile, the strong bass kind of overpowers most of the music and blurs the miss and highs which are quite there. But if you like listening to electronic music, rock and hip hop these are perfect to get.

Comfortable, great quality and amazing price.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good headphones
  • Xmas present purchased
  • Awesome – absolutely love them.

Great headphones but perhaps overpriced.

Got these for my boyfriend for christmas. They are nice looking and great sound quality. It’s now 17th january (almost a month since i bought them) and he hasn’t even had to charge them.

Firstly, the sound quality is amazing. It’s also very easy to pair up with your mobile device or anything else that has bluetooth capabilities. I personally bought these for the gym, but i soon found out that these aren’t exactly comfortable when you are working out and getting a little sweaty. These ideally should be used for commuting and listening to music while relaxing or out with friends for e. Ggood build quality, as you’d expect for that price. (i’d argue they are a little overpriced.

After a lot of research and test driving other makes of wireless headphones including bose. These little bad boy’s came up trumps in my book. I travel round the world in my work spending a lot of time in airport lounges and obviously aircraft(long haul flights) and there is nothing worse if the in flight movies are crap,or even worse if there is a couple traveling with a baby who spends the whole flight showing everyone on the plane how powerful their little lung’s are. Connecting to your iphone is a doddle. The sound quality is amazing,superb. Even at full volume the sound is not distorted in any way. Also the person sitting next to you can not hear what you are listening to and even better you can’t hear those wains testing their lung’s for the whole duration of the flight.

Good quality as expected from dr dre.

My son loves these, says they are comfy and quality very good – they are just so expensive but suppose you are paying for the name and quality.

Bought these headphones for my daughter’s birthday and she loves them. Great sound and easy to charge and carry around.

Does what it says on the tin.

Very nice packaging and look very classy in red.

Been wearing for 6 months now, wear at the gym, on the commute to and from work and just chilling.

Bluetooth works well and very comfortable. Only thing is to remember to charge them regularly.

These were purchased for a present. They were a good price although not the cheapest. I was concerned that the cheapest price were not genuine article. When these arrived i checked them thourghly and they appear to be the genuine article. The bluetooth works well in a gym environment allowing the user to go onto various apparatus while still listening to music. The addition of the cable allows them to be used on a plane or other environment where bluetooth was not appropriate. The quality of the sound is a personal preference but the owner is more than happy with these.

If using ipod 5 the wifi must be switched off otherwise it takes about 5 minutes for a song to load before it is played. Otherwise faultless and fantastic.

Does exactly what it says and from a good distance away 😃.

Work perfectly in the excellent condition that was promised by the seller. All cables and instructions included, has great sound quality and battery life. Very happy with the purchase. Though price was a little steep but can’t complain at all about the product.

I was nervous about spending so much money on headphones i hadn’t tested and i had seen one negative review however i took the plunge and they are fantastic. Sound quality is excellent, packaging was beautiful and being wireless allows me to wander around the office listening to my music while my phone remains on my desk. The final piece of awesomeness was that i left the headphones cover on a flight and beats customer service replaced it for free. Great product, great company.

      These are expensive headphones but are a rip off. They feel cheap and sound ok, but not great. All you are paying for is the ‘dr dre’ branding. There are much better headphones on the market for this amount of money.

      I initially gave these headphones a good review. Unfortunately, i have to retract my good review because the headphones didn’t even last 18 months. My girlfriend took care of hers and didn’t abuse them and they died. I tried getting them fixed/repaired at the applestore, which is where beats will tell you to go if you live in dubai. Unfortunately, after three days of trying to get into the ridiculous genius bar. They couldn’t do any kind of repair. They could only replace them at double the cost of what i paid for them. Beats and apple genius bar are the worst example of quality and customer service.

      I purchased these for my husband for christmas. Within 3 days of use the wireless buttons and system completely stopped working. The only way to listen to music through the earphones is via the cable. Waste of money and a extreme disappointment. The company have not offered to exchange the defect item.

        A little expensive compared to other products on the market which are of similar sound quality. I bought these for using at the gym and they not only look the part but definitely produce that bass you need when you need to get the pump on. They are not too bulky and are lightweight. Overall very good sound quality, durable, wireless headphones which will not disappoint.

  12. 3.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality amazing... Headband quality not so good! says:

    This review is from : Beats by Dr. Dre Wireless On-Ear Headphones – Red

    The sound quality of these is fantastic, however the quality of the headband is suspect. I have had to spend quite a bit of money on getting the headband replaced twice now. Both times it has snapped when i have taken the headphones off of my head. Maybe i am doing something wrong, but i don’t think something this expensive should snap so easily. Other than that i wouldn’t think of getting another headphone. The sound quality is second to none and the usability of the buttons is fantastic. It’s incredibly easy to connect to my ipad/iphone (although soemtimes it is quite difficult switching between the two – but this is to be expected). While the headphone were being repaired i tried buying some cheaper alternatives from wesc and sennheiser (in-ear headphones) and they don’t come anywhere near. All in all, i would recommend this product, however be very aware of the headband snapping (even though it is covered in a warranty for the first year) as it can result in some quite expensive repairs.

    • 1.0 out of 5 stars Battery lasts less than half an hour, cable doesn't work. Terrible product. says:
      When i opened the box and tried the headset out with the cable, to my dismay, it did not work at all. Nevertheless, they are wireless headphones, so i thought that it wouldn’t make too much difference with hours of charge on these beats. I have charged them for hours through the mains (even though no mains charger was provided) but they fail to last more than half an hour. They take forever to pair, once they have paired, it’s time to charge them up again. Most frustrating product i have ever bought. Beats customer services weren’t much use either.

      Having been offered a friend’s to try before i bought, i think that, although they are good, most of the attraction comes from consumer hype from the brigade who must have whatever is trending right now. Unless you have pitch perfect hearing, there are plenty of more modestly priced items around that do pretty much the same job.
