    Stylish design and clean, deep bass, but overpriced, May 20, 2009

    I’ll start out by saying I collect mid-priced headphones(between $50 – $300). It may be an odd hobby, but it gives me a certain perspective that others may not have. I’m also an engineering major, and I found the general lack of objective, in-depth headphone reviews on Amazon to be disconcerting. So, here I am, taking a shot at reviewing some of the headphones I either own or have spent a lot of time listening to.

    I’ve devised a simple six-song test and rating system, where 0 – 2 is abysmal, 2.1 – 4 is poor, 4.1 – 6 is mediocre, 6.1 – 8 is above average, and 8.1 – 10 is excellent.

    The songs are very diverse; I was trying to represent a wide range of genres. They are “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac(encoded in 256 kbps Ogg Vorbis), “Every Planet We’ve Reached is Dead” by Gorillaz(256 kbps .ogg), “Concerto Grosso #26 in D major” by Handel(256 kbps .ogg), “I Know You Are, But What Am I?” by Mogwai(500 kbps .ogg), “Afro Blue” by Triplexity(192 kbps .ogg), and “The Patient” by Tool(500 kbps .ogg).

    I listened to everything on an iAudio 7 with the equalizer set to flat and all the sound effects turned off.

    Sound Quality(6.8/10)

    The Chain(6/10) – bass is nice and deep, slightly exaggerated, but still pleasant to listen to. Distortion is present, but very minimal. Mid tones and highs are somewhat underrepresented and bland, but otherwise sound decent. Instrument separation is a bit muddy. The main negative here is the sound stage, which is tiny.

    Every Planet(8/10) – lows and highs both sound very smooth and rich in this song. Mid tones, as before, are underrepresented and bland. Instrument separation is good, but the sound stage is very underwhelming.

    Concerto(6/10) – the bass in this song is deep and vibrant. Lows are nicely responsive. Mids and highs don’t have quite the balanced presence they should have. Instrument separation is fairly muddy. Once again, the sound stage is lacking.

    I Know You Are(7/10) – bass, as expected, is nice and vivid. Distortion was too high near the beginning of the song, but gradually leveled off. Highs were nice and crisp, but mid tones were lacking. Instrument separation, as was the case with most other songs, is a bit muddy, and the sound stage, while not as bad in this song, is still mediocre.

    Afro Blue(8/10) – the lows in this song were pleasantly punchy, and the highs were fairly crisp and smooth. Mid tones were muddy, however, as was the overall instrument separation(no surprises here). The sound stage is similar to what it was in “I Know You Are, But What Am I?”; it is more present than in most songs, but doesn’t have the fullness I would expect of circumaural headphones at this price.

    The Patient(6/10) – right off the bat, the bass guitar in this song sounds great. Treble is decent, but underrepresented, as are the mid tones. The primary complaint I had in this song was actually not the sound stage(which isn’t emphasized anyway), but the instrument separation, which I felt was greatly lacking in precision.

    Overall Sound(6.8/10) – the bass from these cans is overall clean and pleasant. Somewhat exaggerated, but not greatly so. Distortion, while present at times, is also in small amounts. These aren’t the subs-attached-to-your-head that some might expect before having listened to them. Treble sounds above average, but slightly underrepresented. The mid tones even more so – to the extent that they come across as bland. Instrument separation is also a bit muddy(although not too terrible). Another reviewer commented that these headphones were designed to sound slightly muddy, but I find this hard to believe, since the advertisement on Amazon claims “precise audio clarity”. But as I’ve mentioned time and again, the biggest drawback to these cans is the sound stage, which just wasn’t there. Overall, though, I would give these headphones an above average score in terms of sound quality.

    These are a closed-air, cirumaural design, and a very attractive one at that. I like the styling very much. Lines on these phones are aggressive, but clean and elegant at the same time. They are also very comfortable. They’re lightweight and have plenty of padding. My only complaint here is the headband, which I felt was too rigid, and didn’t conform to my head as much as I’d have liked. I also like how mobile these are – they fold up, and come with a nice case to carry them around in. Great for traveling.

    They are also built pretty well. I would rather see more aluminum at this price, but the plastic they’re composed of is nice and solid. They seem durable, and I doubt they would fall apart anytime soon.

    Noise Isolation(7/10)
    Noise isolation in these Monsters is accomplished via the closed circumaural design, which features plenty of thick padding, and active destruction of outside sound waves entering the headphone. I am a fan…

    Excellent bass. Stylish. Great for travel. Surround sound/depth could be better., November 26, 2008

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    Customer Video Review Length:: 1:24 Mins

    I have been really satisfied (and still using) with the Sennheiser HD-595 Premier Headphone (which cost about $300 at the time; the most expensive headphone I’ve ever spent). Sennheiser is known for making leading professional headphones/microphones/etc.

    …And then there’s MONSTER.

    As far as I’m aware, I’ve only known MONSTER for selling really really expensive overpriced cables for TV/home theater/audio input components. Well, Monster has teamed up with hip hop artist/actor/record producer, Dr. Dre (made Eminem famous) and created this “High-Definition” headphones, which they call BEATS.

    I’ll be comparing the Monster Beats headphone with the Sennheiser HD-595, since it’s the most expensive headset that I own (till this one), and I’d be shocked to find something that sounds better than the HD-595 (that’s around the same price range or less).

    I think it’s obvious most people will expect the bass to be the #1 priority with this headphone, considering it’s by MONSTER + Dr. Dre and called Beats. Well, it definitely doesn’t disappoint there. The Monster Beats definitely wins in terms of bass. (Of course, Dr. Dre’s genre relies heavily on it). If you listen to lots of rock/rap then you’ll love the bass on these. If you get headaches with bass or you just can’t stand it, then obviously, these aren’t really for you.

    The Monster Beats headphones require two AAA batteries to listen. You cannot use the headphones if no batteries are inserted, or if you don’t have the switch to ON (located on the right side of the headphone). The batteries go inside the left compartment of the headphone. I’ve been listening with this headphone for the past two days and the batteries are still going. I’ll have to use it longer to fully test the battery life, but hopefully it’ll last several months because that would be really annoying if I have to keep replacing batteries. Since the headphone is powered by the battery, the sound is obviously amplified more, as well as the bass, than regular headphones. Whether you’re using this on your computer, portable device or iPod, you can have the volume at a low setting and it’ll still sound a lot louder than if you were to use a different headset at that volume setting.

    For taking the headphones on-the-go and for traveling, the Monster Beats win again in terms of portability. The Monster Beats can be collapsed nicely and comes with a nice protective case to store it in; so you won’t be damaging that nice shiny glossy sleek look of the headphone. The Beats definitely has a more youthful look and the shiny piano black finish will definitely catch more attention; however, personally, I think the Sennheiser HD-595 has more of a professional look. The Sennheisher HD-595 has more of a soft earmuffs cushion and the cups are larger, whereas the Beats are leather and smaller. The headphone cable for the Beats is also shorter, so the length is suitable for portable devices; whereas the HD-595, the cord is insanely long and not really made for walking around with it (but you can always replace the cord).

    Without taking off your Beats headphone, you can press and hold the center button (The beat logo) on the right side of the headphone and it’ll mute the sound until you release it again; this is convenient when someone needs to tell you something for a brief moment or you want to hear what’s going outside for just awhile. The Beats headphone are closed headphones, so just by putting the headphone, you’ll notice outside noise being reduced.

    The vocals treble seem to be slightly higher than normal, but then again, it is also counter-balanced because again, the bass is stronger than what most headphones produce. The Monster Beats is great for hip hop/rap/rock music that use bass, of course, but what about others?

    For overall music, despite the impressive bass on the Beats, I am still way more impressed with the sound of the HD-595. Compared to the HD-595, I feel the Beats lack more depth in surround sound. Granted, the Beats headphone are closed headphones, whereas the HD-595 are open for a more natural sound than some confined studio recording feel. When I’m listening to the same music with the HD-595, I feel like I’m actually there listening to a concert/theater and can really hear the separation of instruments/vocals/sound effects/etc.; it really feels like true surround sound. On the other hand, the Beats doesn’t quite have that feel. With the Beats, despite some surround sound, I still know I’m listening with headphones. Don’t get me wrong, the Beats doesn’t have poor surround sound, but once you experience other high-end headphones, you will notice the difference in depth/separate channels.

    + Impressive Bass…
