not worth the money
Posted by: corprolalia from: washington, dc on
had these just for 2 days. i compared these with both the bose ie2 and the skullcandy titans. this is an honest opinion so please read.
these headphones are not worth $100. the construction of them are great, they feel durable in your hands and you can tell monster spent time in building the headphones, but from there it goes downhill. the sound quality on these headphones is terrible, and i mean terrible. i played an even number of hiphop and alternative tracks with both the urbeats and the skullcandy titans (bose earphones i returned due to absolutely no bass, very good mids and highs). the skullcandy titans outperformed the urbeats, and are only half the price. first, the bass on the urbeats sound muddy, and it drowns out the mids and the highs, there were not clear at all. the highs sounded like they were tangled with the mids, and it didnt sound clear at all. on the other hand, the skullcandy titans surprisingly had a better definded bass sound, as well as crystal clear highs and mids.
generally speaking, if you don't compare earphones you will never know who has the best sound quality. in the end, if you wanna be stylish and have people notice u have beats by dre, then by all means go for these. but if your looking for sound quality, there was no comparison, the urbeats did poorly against the skull candy titans. if you don't believe me, just purchase a couple different earphones and compare yourself, you will see if you took the "beats by dre" logo off of the headphones, the urbeats would be priced at probaly $30-$50" at most, thats how bad the sound quality is.

good headphones should have bought the sonys'

Good headphones to waste about 30 bucks on. They sound good but other brands do the same for less. The part that sticks out of your ear is to big and uncomfortable to relax in bed with. They are more for saying look at me I have money to burn on a pair of 75 dollar headphones. I won't buy another pair!

They work great right out of box
I had for a total of 3 weeks (both pair!)
First pair, both speakers sounds became very low
Second pair, left speaker sounds became very low
Return them after second pair

terrible earbuds, returned over 5 times
Posted by: MarMarAp90 from: on
these earbuds sound amazing BUT after about a month, one or both sides of earbuds will go out on you. I had my Bestbuy warrenty on the earbuds just in case somthing happened, I was at Bestbuy back to back in 5months! I dont trust Beats anymore after having this product, anything that is overly advertised you shouldn't trust. Beats made these just for a quick buck. If you want to get your money's worth, dont buy Dre Beats at all. Dre Beats are over-rated....

These earbuds are worth the $100 dollar price tag. They have great sound if you like bass you'll love urbeats.If you own an iOS device check out this app called Denon audio it's free and will improve the audio for better sound

Great earbuds! i had Solos. but i wanted to be able to have that quality of music. but be able to have earbuds to listen to in class. people are being to critical. the bass drop is INSANE. its sounds really great!. i did try the earbuds with other phones. and they sound different depending on your settings. are they worth the price? ehh maybe. but these are the best earbuds you can get by Dr.Dre. Noise canceling also works very nicely!

A great buy
Posted by: AppleCusty from: Coconut Creek, FL on
First I want to say that I normally do not write reviews, but since I have gone thru at least 6 earphones / headphones in the last year I might as well.
I purchased these after returning the Souls, PowerBeats, Jaybirds and a few others.
Now I know beats is more about style and name brand but hey they look good and sound amazing as well!
The PowerBeats were my favorites but the remote on it would go bad, not sure if its from the sweat but it was really annoying and they are suppose to be waterproof.
I have only had the UrBeats for about a week now but so far I have no complaints at all. The quality looks and feels amazing. I have always been a sucker for the Black and Red scheme and this one has a better looking and feeling remote.
I would recommend for anyone looking to upgrade factory earphones who doesn't mind paying a little more. (Don't forget to get with protection plan just incase)

Upgraded from skullcandy titan(awesome buds) thought that I would finally see what all the hype was about. They are worth every penny, the design is second to the sounds quality and the design is amazing.I picked up a white pair to match my white galaxy sIII, probably going to pick up a black pair also to match laptop.
