    Great deal!

    Posted

    My wife told me about the Deal of the Day were these Beats EP On Ear Headphones. At first, I was hesitant because I prefer Bose headphones for overall sound quality. Over the years I've tried several Beats headphones in the store and have never been impressed due to the messy, muddy sound. I decided to take the leap and purchase these headphones because it was a great deal for only $65 and I have been in the market for some quality on ears for some time now. I'm so glad that I got them. They are definitely a steal for under $100. I honestly couldn't see myself paying more than $100 for them though. They are very clear, comfortable and very well built. I am very impressed with how far Beats has come. I'm still going to stick to Bose because I love all of their products but I'll be giving Beats a second chance from now if they're on sale. I would have liked to give them 4.5 stars because I feel like you still miss out on some of the higher notes in the music but again these are fantastic headphones nevertheless. I got the black set and they look awesome. Good job Beats!

    No Complaints from my 15 year old

    I purchased these headphones for my son's 15th birthday. He originally wanted the wireless $300 ones but let's just say he isn't the most responsible child. Having said that, when I gave him the headphones he was very happy and I explained this would be a test for the more expensive ones. He was very understanding (though I may have needed to check his temperature) and ok with my decision. The next day when I arrived home from work he thanked me again for the headphones and stated that these were the best headphones he ever had and didn't see the need for the more expensive ones. He stated the sound was so clear and it blocked out outside noises (which now I can't get him to take them off of his head, especially when it's time to clean and garbage night, Overall, I am pleases with my purchase. I got them for 50% off and I was able to use my $10 rewards certificate which saved me a ton. I gave it 4 stars because I haven't used but I'm quite sure my son would give them a 10. If you are looking to save and have great quality I would say this is the way to go.

    I had been looking forward to buying​ beats headphones since they came out. But due to price had to wait it out for a great deal to come along. I love and appreciate Best Buy for their prices and quality merchandise. I like their friendly staff too. I finally had a good job with good pay so to treat myself I did my research on Best Buy.Com. I was very excited to see beats on sale under a hundred dollars so off I went to buy them. They also match my company uniform lol. I paid one price they went down a few days later I came back to the store for a price adjustment and got an even better deal so juiced. I even went in the pouring down rain that day but worth every penny..... Awesome. I even let my co-workers listen they were so excited to hear how they sound too. I've gotten my money worth and some thank you Best Buy for selling such a great product. I never leave home without them so I don't hear all the noise on the bus to and from work daily. I've even been asked and complimented by strangers that they like them too. Even better they are special edition too. Well that's my story I love how my Pandora subscription sounds through the headphones. I will continue to shop Best Buy in the future.

    Much better value than Solo3, wish cable detached

    I did a review on Solo3, wish they still had an option for wired and not made you pay for the wireless ones. Anyway, the only new wired and "affordable" option are the EPs. I personally like the streamline design, the headband feel strong and flexible when twisted. Might even be more sturdy than the Solo line because of this. However, the biggest issue I have is the cable is not removable. Why?!? Guess not a huge deal, but if mic breaks on the cable (which happens A LOT), I would like to be able to simply replace a cable and not the whole headphones or go without. Sound is pretty good to, close to if not on par with the Solo line. However, even though I kind of like the design, my daughters and their friends do not and call them cheap. While they are less then the other more overpriced lines of Beats, $80-$120 is not a cheap. Being Beats, they are still overpriced. However, being the only wired set you can currently but (excluding earbuds), they are the best value Beats has.

    Totally disappointed

    I purchased 2 pair of these headphones 1 blue 1 black, within the first week I had to toggle the cord on the blue pair to get the sound to play in both headphones. By week 2 I was experiencing the same problem with the Black pair. Along with the aggravation of having to toggle on the cord to get the sound to play the bass is not what you would expect from Dre beats. I'm not sure if I just so happen to be the person that bought 2 pair that had the same problem or if this is a technical issue on this model headphones. Now the kicker is the headphones are never really comfortable in after about 1 hour they go from uncomfortable to painful. I had purchased the solo's a few years back from hh greg in I had a overall wonderful experience with those. I ordered 2 pair of Studio's earlier today so I'm hoping to have a better experience.

    Lousy. repaired 3 times in less than a year.

    I have had these less then a year. The insert to the phone broke, after about 2 weeks. Once this problem was solved, the microphone stopped working. I sent them in twice to be repaired. the mic was finally fixed, used them for another week or two, and the insert to the phone virtually fell apart upon removing it. I believe they are designed poorly, the cord and insert is the problem. I rang apple again to repair them, as they are still on warranty, they refused and said exterior force had broken them. Well, it takes exterior force to remove them from the phone! Apple told me it would cost 79$ to repair them. So, i will not recommend this product. For most of the past 10 months they have been broken, and with Apple refusing to repair them, they will remain that way. I am extremely disappointed with the product and with the customer service provided by apple.

    GREAT SOUND - GREAT PRICE

    These headphones are absolutely perfect! I bought them and was a little skeptical because of the reasonable price of $130, especially since most Beats by Dre headphones are pretty overpriced just because of the brand. When I tried these, I was VERY surprised at the quality of them. First of all, they're bendable (stretchy headband), they're comfortable, have a nice design, have the iPhone remote which works with Apple obviously and even Android phones, and finally have the sound quality to match the brand name! The bass is still strong but not overwhelming, and the treble and clarity is much improved and the headphones sound FAR better than the older Beats. They sound good with every genre of music, especially rock, pop, and rap. And they cancel noise better than most earphones even though they're not actually noise cancelling.

    Unforunately i bought these because i see everyone wearing BEATS. i thought they would be good. Howerver i have returned 2 pairs of them. The FIrst pair - they stopped working in one ear and then both ears. the other pair just started having similar issues. they look good but they are not quality headphones based on my experiences with other Headphones. The Beats just dont hold up to the daily Grind of Kids using them - they didnt last very long. Best buy is the best company becasue they agreed with me and returned both units....I have Bose units that i use for myserlf and they are so much better....DO not buy these headphones spend a little extra money and get the JBL Elite 310's or the 710's or get the BOSE units that cost between 229-299. it is worth it they are better Headphones...

    Nice headphones

    I never considered myself part of the "Beats demographic". I don't like overly bass-y music (except for some Underworld now and again) or equipment that is voiced that way. Anyway, after reading a few reviews on these 'phones, I decided to pull the trigger...and the price was nice too. So far, I'm really happy with the sound quality. I have an EQ app on my iPhone, so I can dial-down the bass if I want. The sound is full and rich, and the bass is punchy. Build quality is first-rate. My only quibble...the ear-pads can get a little uncomfortable after a few hours of listening. I haven't had on-ear headphones for a LONG time, so maybe they all cause fatigue eventually. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase.

    I have tried Sony and Bose that both claim superior sound and noise cancellation. Respectfully both companies have great product but I find that they are heavy on the wallet for their claim to superiority to sound. Al though Beats used to be overpriced, they have managed to lower their price points while improving on sound as to which I find more durable for modern music. Bose cannot handle modern production and tends to crackle. Sony has great sound, but their product tends to fall apart quickly. Note: I use the wired headphones for home music production. The wireless tends to cause a sound delay.

    A decent value priced headphone for specific genre

    Posted

    These headphones are very decent and certainly a great value (at least what I paid for them). My first few complaints are that the connector cables between each of the cans is very thin and will likely break short of the true life of these headphones. The same is true for the 1/8" connector. Volume, pause, etc. buttons all work as one is probably familiar from Apple's own earpods. The sound it produces is great...but that is a genre specific statement. I listen to a lot of genres of music and these are great for specific ones. I've got some Audio Technica ones for another, etc. If your genre is for example "Down" by Marian Hill (the soundtrack for the Apple commercial), its perfect.

    I had been curious about Beats headphones for some time now. I like that these are wired (so no downtime for charging). Has a mic and remote that works with my phone. I have used them for music and for gaming. They feel fairly comfortable over long periods (and I do have a larger head). The sound blocking is pretty decent just from the earcups against the ears. The sound is good, they are a little bass heavy, which is lost sometimes with some types of over the ear sets. The thing is, I got these for a radiculous cheap price on sale. I'm glad I did, because even though they sound good, I'm not sure the level of sound quality justifies the price tag at full asking price.

    Ok, I got these beats headphones for my daughter who is on a basketball team. Apparently all the players wear Beats. At first i thought it was just a brand trend. However, I have to confess, that I find myself sneaking chances to wear her head phones whenever I can. I usually wear them when I'm walking the dog or doing yard work. The sound is incredible. I listen to all kinds of music on them from Jazz to classical. I'm very impressed with the clarity of sound. Highly recommend.

    Great "Budget Beats"

    Initially, I was looking for bluetooth headphones that were of good quality and felt good against my ears. The display options for bluetooth were between the Skullcandy and Sony. The sony headphones were great sounding, but i could feel the speaker against my ear (at least on display) and the skull candy's that I did like were $200. I tried the beats display, and though it was chorded, it wasn't too big over-the-ear, no outside noise if turned up, and great quality for listening to rock music. Not a lot of bass for dance music as opposed to the solos, but for the price ($129 I paid at the time) better for my pocket.

    I was looking for new headphones to use at work. I work in an open office environment so it can get loud and distracting with people talking. I have a set of Beats in ear headphones and I really like them but I wanted something with better sound and that would block out external noises. These headphones were much more comfortable than I expected. The ear pieces move so they fit to my ears and the shape of my head better which I really like. I can wear them longer than my old set of over the ear headphones. Sound quality is really good as well! They aren't noise canceling but they block out a lot of external noise.

    I bought these 1.5 years ago and barely use them. They're stored safely in my desk drawer at work for when the office gets too loud. Today the sound went out in the right ear completely, which I can tell is from a loose wire in the headphones. Only one-side of audio for me now. If you want these headphones, I would recommend the extended warranty, if available. A repair would cost $6 more than the headphones cost me. Also, these definitely hurt my ears with the amount of pressure they put on them.

    Excellent Clarity, Volume, and Differentation

    Beats EP Headphones sound quality, with my limited experience was excellent. I had no complaints, but I can only compare them to Samsung, Apple, and a few others, which are also quality, in ear headphones. I specifically wanted over ear headphones without worrying about a bluetooth battery. These were great, and even on sale, except for they are "on ear", not "around ear", not "in ear". After about two hours, the ear muffs themselves made my actual ear lobe uncomfortable. Not my ear drum, but my physical ear. They are too tight for my head. I prefer in ear or around ear. Other than that, they are great.

    Good headphones if you can get them on sale.

    These are going to do everything you would need from a set of headphones. I believe compared to most headphones it is a very good quality and you can peice apart the sounds a little better such as the drums and the guitars to a song seems to stick out a little bit better. The fact that they are on ear and not over ear can be a little annoying. I use mine for radio work and wear them for significant amounts of time and it makes my ears a little sore. They are expensive and I got mine when they were on a good sale below 100. If you can get it on sale and want something that's gonna last. I'd recommend it.

    My wife LOVES these Beats! I've been a Beats fan/buyer (the wireless 2 and 3) for years, but my wife would buy generic brands and wonder why they either broke, the volume sucked or they just had problems all the way around...so she was skeptical when I told her I had made the right choice for her...so of course, she had to admit that I was right! If I had to purchase another pair as a gift, I definitely would!

    Ive been a big fan of Beats since they have come out and between my kids and I we have owned about 8 pairs. They lost theirs and the headband on mt first pink pair broke and sound only came out one ear. But Im hooked. My son has the wireless earbuds and I have the HD Rose Gold Wireless, but they didnt work well for me at the gym.. nor were they loud enough...Soo I bought these on sale for $69 on sale and though they dont fold which is great...they are fantastic..Sound quality is clear and loud like I prefer when I work out..Just a very good overall quality Beats headphone.
