When it comes to Beats headphones, you either love them or you hate them. From reading online those who love these headphones like the clear sound, provided noise-canceling, comfortable ear pieces and base that will keep up with your tunes. Some folks out there feel Beats headphones are way over priced for the amount, but I feel you find grumbling for most mass marketed higher priced headphones. Here is a great review at PC Magazine where they go into deeper detail about the amazing sound quality that you can expect from these headphones.
