good but overpriced

By 

from USA

Comments about Beats by Dr. Dre Turbine Earbud Headphones:

While I'm not a fan of beats audio, these earbuds have better sound quality then most earbuds. The problem is that earbuds just never are able to get the sound I am seeking like over ear headphones do. This is good for running or working out but don't expect to do any real listening on these. If you need headphones for running or something there are cheaper options. Nonetheless these do sound good just not worth the money.

Good headphones, but pricey for the quality

By 

from USA

Comments about Beats by Dr. Dre Turbine Earbud Headphones:

I got a pair of these headphones for my birthday a couple of months ago. I am an avid runner training for a marathon so I need my i-pod companion to accompany me on those long ten plus mile runs. At first, the head phones worked great. The sound quality was clear, and it cancelled out a lot of noise. So much that I barely had to turn up my volume that much compared to previous head phones that I have owned. However, after only a couple of weeks of using the headphones, the left ear started going staticky but then the problem stopped. Then, a couple of days later, the left ear stopped working completely. It only took two more days after that before the right ear started going staticky and before I knew it, the headphones stopped working altogether. I was a little disappointed with the price that was used to buy it. I definitely expected a longer life that it had especially given the fact that my volume wasn't set to extremely high levels when I ran. I have had much cheaper headphones that have lasted longer than this. The only reason why I gave it a six is due to the fact that while it worked, it performed fantastically. I really liked the design, it was light and fit into my ears perfectly. I am hoping that my case is just a special one and the headphones actually do last longer and I just got a malfunctioning one. However, I will not be risking it and buying a new one to find out.

off brands are just as good.

By 

from USA

Comments about Beats by Dr. Dre Turbine Earbud Headphones:

They are just overpriced ear phones because of the brand. I would buy them and I wouldn't recommend them. I sing and record myself and my fiance produces beats and we use regular off brand earphones and the work just fine and our music quality is just as good as using beats (we have tried to see if there was a difference).

Sound Quality
Regular off brand ear phones sounds just as good as beats by dre. With the technology in the electronics now a days you can change the equalizers and bass just so you can listen to music the way you want to. They do however block out all the noise around you which could be a good or bad thing depending on where you are using them.

Comfort
They are pretty comfortable. They don't fall out of your ears which is a plus.

Design
The design is pretty basic to me. It could of been better.

Durability
I've heard from multiple people that they tend to break easily and that they had to buy replacements for the first ones they bought.

Good bang for your buck

By 

from Stevens Point, Wisconsin

Comments about Beats by Dr. Dre Turbine Earbud Headphones:

These earbud headphones are absolutley amazing. They cancel out any sound besides your music and amplify the sound so much. I highly recommend these for anyone who likes to listen to good quality music. The best part about it is you don't have to worry about taking them on and off and constantly messing up your hair or your ears getting sore, unlike the full out headphones. A caution if you're buying them online though; if the price seems too good to be true, they are more than likely fake. Make sure to purchase them locally or in store so you can be certain they are the real deal (unless you don't care if they're knock off beats, then more power to you). Overall the best earbud headphones I've ever used.

Sound Quality
This is the best part of these earbud headphones. It makes listening to music so much enjoyable when you get that crisp clean sound pounding your ear drums. They really nailed it in this aspect.

Comfort
Compared to the other earbud headphones I've used, this is by far the most comfortable. It fits in my ear almost perfectly and I don't have to worry about readjusting them every thirty seconds like the others I've had. Unlike other headphones, my ears don't get that painful feeling after the earbuds have been in too long, which is a huge plus for me.

Design
The design is stylish and yet still comfortable. I honestly couldn't think of another way I would want to change them.

Durability
So far so good, but Ive only owned them for around 6 months. I'll keep it as a 9 for now until something occurs.

Good, but overpriced

By 

from Bellevue, NE

Comments about Beats by Dr. Dre Turbine Earbud Headphones:

Good quality sound, compact, does what it is supposed to do set of headphones. They are overpriced, in my opinion, though. Either that, or they are more for the music "conniseur" crowd.

Sound Quality
I enjoy my music, but I'm no musical expert. I do like the sound that they produce, but, as a mom, I'm kind of afraid to have them out because my kids may lose or break them. Given the expense, I'm not too excited about that happening!

Comfort
They are comfortable to wear, even though I am not a fan of having something *inside* my ear. I do prefer that "over the ear" style of headphones.

Design
The design is adequate. It is nice that they came with a carrying pouch, so I'm not as worried about the cords getting caught on something or tangled up in something.

Durability
Again, given the expense, I do worry about their ability to stand up to my sons' use.

Absolutely Perfect Sound

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Beats by Dr. Dre Turbine Earbud Headphones:

Life is too short to listen to bad headphones....!!! Thats the first thing you see when you open that case and its only too true once you listen to these. These headphones sound so good I have been hearing things in songs I did not even know was there, the Bass is incredible and not over powering it just sounds very natural like you are in a car with good bass and no rattle. 

Also the feel of these headphones is great you can tell they are very durable and you know they will hold up to almost anything. Its the piece of mind you get with these headphones from the durability to the 3 year warranty its a great feeling.

I highly recommend these headphones they are worth the money.

A slightly over priced pair of head phones that delivers.

By 

from Rice Lake, WI

Comments about Beats by Dr. Dre Turbine Earbud Headphones:

I order these head phones because I wanted a portable option for doing video work in the field. So after reading reviews and I decided on the Turbines. Also they look awesome and I'm a sucker for a good design. 

Pros: Their mid to high range sound is very nice. The design and quality of construction is impressive. When you hold them they feel solid. Also the cord is typical monster so there is almost no loss in quality. They also come with a very nice leather case that screams quality.

 

Cons: The low range (bass) lacks the power that you would like. I have had one pair just quit on me. They worked fine for a couple of months then started to fade until the sound quit in on ear and then the next. The plus side is the Monster's customer support is very helpful and even though I did not have my receipt they did an exchange for me.

 

Overall: They are a good pair of headphones that deliver good sound for classic rock but fall behind on the bass.
