Do you think your headphones or earbuds make your favorite music sound the way the artist intended it to sound? Probably not. In 2006, Dr. Dre, legendary rap artist and producer, and Jimmy Lovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records and American Idol mentor established Beats Audio to create studio-quality sound for artists, audiophiles and everyday listeners like you and I. Beats headphones and speakers have been engineered with an advanced speaker design and powered amplification that are able to reproduce the full spectrum of sound so that you’re able to hear your music with the same sonic quality heard in professional recording studios.
HSN sent me a pair of Beats Studio HD Headphones to try. I was impressed with these phones from the minute I opened the zippered case. First of all, the headphones fold up to make them more compact and easier to fit in your gear bag. They also look cool and are available in several colors. Next up, the adjustable headband and the ear pads have a lot of cushion which make the headphones comfortable to wear for hours. Style and comfort are great, but how do they sound? I’m happy to report that they sound excellent. I especially enjoyed using them to listen to a few podcasts and some of my favorite smooth jazz. They live up to their “Beats” name due to their thumpy bass.
