HSN has a Special Discount on Beats Studio HD Headphones Today (8/17) and We’re also Giving a Pair Away!

This post brought to you by HSN. All opinions are 100% mine.

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.

Want to try a pair for yourself? There are two ways to do this.  You can buy a pair by taking advantage of HSN Today’s Special – only available on 8/17 special discount on the Beats Studio HD headphones which includes an exclusive offer not available anywhere else. In addition to the discount, they’ll also SHIP FOR FREE at HSN.  Low on cash? No worries, you can also use HSN’s FlexPay system, which allows you to pay for them in installments with no additional charges. $60 will get these headphones on your noggin ASAP. Shop all Beats products available on HSN.

    I’m a complete audiophile but can’t afford the high end products like Beats, so this would be a perfect solution!

  • Sharon abar August 15, 2012, 1:23 pm

    I’ve never had a pair of high-end headphones. These would be a cool introduction!

  • Adam DeGroot August 15, 2012, 1:32 pm

    I want a pair of Beats Studio HD Headphones because they look cool and I bet they sound awesome!

  • Cindy C @bobisyellow August 15, 2012, 1:35 pm

    I’ve heard so many good things about them

  • Matt Penning August 15, 2012, 1:35 pm

    I love listening to music, while I work at the computer. These would allow me the room-filling experience without bothering my partner.

  • Melissa Jordan August 15, 2012, 2:12 pm

    How my day began yesterday: my car accident-numbed leg left me tumbling in the hall en route to the bathroom, knocking me into my desk, and bouncing my headphones to the floor, directly in my path. I tripped into the headphones cord, ripping the wires out at both the connector and headphone ends. Adios, headphones!

    Bonus points for style and difficulty (like in Olympic diving) that same night: me panicking that I was suddenly going blind, only to realize that in my dog-tired state, I’d climbed into the shower with my eyeglasses on and they had become a Grade A fog machine.

    Now, having a fab pair of Beats Studio HD headphones won’t make me any less absent-minded or gimpy, but it would make me very happy to listen to music again without annoying my neighbors through our paper-thin walls. Of course, I would vow to never play awful music through them. Headphones of that quality deserve good tunes!

  • g_diddy August 15, 2012, 3:09 pm

    Because I want to be one of the cool kids….at 50!

  • Laurie LaRose August 15, 2012, 3:20 pm

    Sometimes when life is so difficult and unfair, you feel like you cannot go on for another second, the only thing that gets you through is loud music deep in your brain. I can only imagine that listening to music through Dre’s headphones would turn your hell into heaven. I need the peace.

  • Chris August 15, 2012, 3:21 pm

    I have heard so many good things about these and came across this post… What a treat it would be to win these and block out my annoying coworkers…

  • Jay August 15, 2012, 3:43 pm

    I just purchased a cool Internet digital radio and the Beats Studio HD headphones would be the perfect compliment to enjoying my 80′s music all day long!

    -sorry for the duplicatation, I hit send twice.

  • Alan August 15, 2012, 3:49 pm

    I have been looking to replace my in-ear buds for some good over the ear phones for a while, a good quality pair like these will be great. Also I would be a great advertisment for Beats Studio HD when I wear them on my many daily bus journeys.

  • Steve Cecil August 15, 2012, 3:57 pm

    I work in the AV industry and I get to sample various products at major tradeshows. The Beats Studio HD Headphones are some of the best sounding, most comfortable I have ever tried.

  • Andrew Baker August 15, 2012, 4:58 pm

    After my 3rd Alien abduction I realized that I needed some better form of entertainment while traveling through hyperspace. I tried listening to Pandora on my phone but kept getting “no signal” So I started saving mp3’s to play when I was 400 light years out of Sprints service area. (Trust me, you only make the mistake of getting billed roaming fees 400 light years away once). I tried ear buds but unfortunately they did not drown out the throbbing of the ships “Quantum” drive. Tho for the first 3 hours I thought my phone was only able to play skrillex, and then realized that it was the ship itself. The other added benefit of these is they completely cover my ears, maybe the aliens won’t be able to probe me there anymore.

  • gregg August 15, 2012, 8:11 pm

    I just bought an external sound card for my laptop and now I need a pair of good headphones to take full advantage of my new product. (@Gregg_X)

  • Ariel August 15, 2012, 8:56 pm

    I keep hearing good things about these headphones. I’d like to try them.

  • mike August 15, 2012, 9:06 pm

    I would love to win these simply because my current old headphones suck!

  • Luke Goodspeed August 15, 2012, 9:14 pm

    I was wanting to purchase some headphones recently, but I had to buy my cross country spikes for the upcoming season. Being a student, I don’t have the funds to buy luxury items such as these. Winning would be a great blessing, especially since we will be going on bus rides for the upcoming cross country/track season. Thank you for holding the contest!!

  • Matt August 15, 2012, 9:58 pm

    I’m a sophomore in high school and I’m into tech and gadgets. I just bought an iPad and I love it. These headphones are great and I would love to win them. Thank you…..

  • David August 15, 2012, 10:43 pm

    I want, scratch that; NEED these headphones because what’s left of my twenty-year-old entry-level AKG’s leave chunks of foam in my hair. I’ve dreamt of that unzipping sensation you described. :)

  • C.F. Hutton August 15, 2012, 11:19 pm

    I want a Pair because my daughter desperately wants some… Her Mom won’t let me buy them for her out of fear of spoiling her too much!

  • Tony August 16, 2012, 1:52 am

    I’ve always been interested in sound. I got into music when I was a kid, growing up watching DJs mix it up. As the years went by, I was able to earn my own system, many types of speakers, finding great and extraordinary music. Although with my passion for music, it didnt seem like the right time to invest into portable Pro Audio equipment, so it was just plain old white ipod buds or basic sony monitor heads.

    I have been studying about ‘Beats’ headphones and the advancements in technology to bring pro audio to the mobile market. With this opportunity, I would love to try them so I can bring my music, and the quality, with me everywhere I go.

    Thank you

  • Alina August 16, 2012, 4:57 am

    I have a desire to buy these headphones. I trust their quality.

  • paul August 16, 2012, 9:16 am

  • Bill Greene August 16, 2012, 12:51 pm

    I’ve tried these out and they’re on my list. A set from The Gadgeteer for a fellow Hoosier would be awesome!

  • Nykki August 16, 2012, 2:09 pm

    I need a new pair to workout with!

  • Shauna Harrelson August 16, 2012, 5:44 pm

    I would love to have a new pair of Beats so that I could listen to music and release some stress. Also, I would love to have them to workout with! Winning these would be amazing!!!

  • Jonathan T August 16, 2012, 7:41 pm

    I really hope to win these headphones because mine are half broken and I have to use my sister’s in-ears, which are kinda suck.
    I seriously love music, I try to listen to it as much as I can, and I want to enjoy music in the best quality there is, that’s why most of my songs are 320kbps and that’s why I’m trying to win the headphones.
    I’d buy the headphones by myself but it’s just too expensive for me.
    I really hope you will choose me, it means a lot!

  • Vanessa Herrera August 16, 2012, 9:32 pm

    Ever since a friend of mine bought a pair of the Beats Studio headphones, I feel in love with Beats. I finally got my own pair, the more simple and less expensive iBeats, but I was in the love. I’m sad now, however, that my iBeats broke, thanks to my wonderful American short-hair cat. I’m so upset; I loved my iBeats so much. When I found out about HSN’s special one-day offer on the Beats Studio headphones, I quickly went straight to their website, ready to buy them. Then I saw this wonder post and learned that I could have a chance of winning them! I’m so excited for this giveaway and I really hope I win! Even if I don’t win, I’m still ready for HSN’s special offer! I cannot live any longer without a pair of Beats!

  • Isi August 16, 2012, 10:56 pm

    The odds of me winning is 0 to none but I’ll enter anyways. :)

  • Bob Brustman August 17, 2012, 8:15 am

  • Daniel August 17, 2012, 10:38 am

    Because I should take care of ears and love them.
    Because if I don’t, who would.
    Beats take care of me. So that’s cool.

  • Bea August 17, 2012, 10:48 am

    I’ve been looking at the Bose Quiet Comfort headphones but from what I read, these are just as good and are much more stylish.

  • Ben Kayrouz August 17, 2012, 3:47 pm

    I would love to have some Beats Studio HD Headphones so I could finally tell my wife that there is something better out there than Bo*e.

  • Lauren Haskell August 17, 2012, 4:46 pm

    I am the epitome of a music lover and I spend my entire day working online. My current headphones broke a month or 2 ago and are held together by scotch tape. lolz. The metal sticking out of them digs into the side of my head. I plan on getting new headphones but wanted to wait until I could afford a pair of beats. Unfortunately, beats haven’t made the budget for sometime. Please help rid me of this noise cancelling headache and deliver me high quality sounding tuneage.

  • Erica Best August 18, 2012, 12:09 am

    wow I would love a pair fun giveaway

  • Ducky August 18, 2012, 10:05 am

  • Lewis August 18, 2012, 10:06 am

    I have some 20-year old Sony noise-cancelling headphones and can’t afford to update. The Beats are the state of the art and it would be great to own a pair. Thanks.

  • Michelle Smith August 18, 2012, 10:06 am

    I’d love to win a pair for my daughter. She wears cochlear implants, and can’t wear the ear bud style headphones. These would be perfect for her to listen to her iPod with. And as a bonus, I won’t have to keep hearing the teen-girl style music!

  • Susan Smith August 18, 2012, 10:07 am

    I have heard good things about these headphones. I’d like to try them, plus I just lost my ear buds.

  • Tasmia August 18, 2012, 10:12 am

    I would love to win beats as i have many times bought cheap and expensive headphones but after a few months they all break. If i won beats i wont have to spend money on buying lots of bad quality headphones :)

  • Nancy Reid August 18, 2012, 10:14 am

    I’m already thinking of Christmas and with the tight budget I’m on things are going to be tough but if I win the Beats Studio HD Headphones I’ll be relieved to know I have a very impressive gift to put under the tree for my son and that would be an awesome relief.

  • Deana Kneen August 18, 2012, 10:14 am

    My friend has a pair and they are fantastic, but I just can’t afford them and would live to win a pair!

  • jeannine s August 18, 2012, 10:14 am

    follow on twitter @mellanhead and I would love to win! I have heard such great things about beats. I have beats audio on my laptop and the sound is amazing. A pair of headphones would be great to use on the go

  • KK August 18, 2012, 10:22 am

    My day job is as a freelance sports reporter & that means editing a lot of video. When not on the job, music is my escape. These Beats would be perfect for a little work-life integration.

  • Kayla August 18, 2012, 10:23 am

    I absolutely love music, I listen to it 24/7. I’ve tested Beats out at stores and I LOVE them. They’re such great quality. Sadly, they’re out of my price range. ): Winning them would be great! :)

  • John Onochie August 18, 2012, 11:23 am

    Beats by Dr. Dre has given listeners the opportunity to feel what they feel and hear what they hear and in the process inspiring them so much to want to make music. I want a pair of this evolutionary headset because the magnitude Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡f its necessity increases by the minute both for producers and artistes and the listeners in general.
    I’m an aspiring producer and winning the beat headset would change the way I hear sound and also inspire me just as it has inspired many others to produce quality instrumentals without flaws.

  • Kimberly Coleman August 18, 2012, 12:45 pm

    Honestly I will never be able to afford these for my son. He’s been dying to have these headphones. He’s the only guy on his team who doesn’t have a pair. Being a single mom I have so much responsibilities. Winning these would make him happy since he travels with his team a lot. He loves hip hop.

Thanks for the opportunity!

    Why I want a Beats HD studio headphone the sound is great saw some proffessional artist use them to fully listen to good music clears background noise to bring quality sound. that’s headphones I trust not like anything I have heard no camparisons. I cannot afford one because I’m in a budget. But love to own one tested one at the best buy store felt really good in the ears I would be surprised to actually recieve my first Beats headphone. Because the tastemakers have made this headphone very popular around the country. I see people wearing one everywhere why not be one of them there have been sites offering free Beats headphones but none have been luck only this site is my chance to win! :)

  • Matt McCrary August 18, 2012, 11:56 pm

    I agree with what Bono wrote about the intimacy music creates in your life. He listened to Dylan on his headphones in the 70’s and heard prayers more than songs. When I think of my trip to Chicago I hear Kate Nash, Portland was Gotye, painting class was Local Natives. It inspires and uplifts me and there’s nothing better than a great pair of headphones! My current pair look like air-traffic control safety muffs but they’re comfy and sound pretty great… I just get weird looks when I fly.

  • Sarah August 19, 2012, 1:42 am

  • melinda g August 20, 2012, 2:40 pm
