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 need these headphones because I love listening to music, and I’m tired of buying the headphones that costs $1. They do not last long at all. If I win these I will treat it with care. So pick me I never win stuff.

    im still using the lame Apple earbuds (which sound like crap) and my music desperately needs some bass. otherwise i might go through life thinking everything has as much bass as AM radio.

    103
  • pinnack August 20, 2012, 3:43 pm

    I would love a pair, so that I can listen to music and hear people more clearly on Skype in Haiti as I work on my non-profit project to help human trafficking victims recover in Haitian tent camps and orphanages.

    I would want to win these headphones because I take the bus everyday. There is only a couple busses where i live and usually run every hour. So If I miss one Im just sitting there holding my phone to my ear playing music. These will help me kill time and listen to my music better. thanks! And I do follow hsn on twitter!

    I want a pair of Beats Studio HD headphones so that I can hear and be able to enjoy the thumpy bass you mentioned above on my favorite type of music – HOUSE! Also because the ones that come with the ipod hurt my ears a lot and am in pain.

  • Ronalee Duncan August 21, 2012, 11:02 am

    I would love to win a pair because the pair that I have now have a rattle and it is very annoying to me. I think it is great that they fold up, which makes it so easy to take with me.

    Okay. I don’t have a stellar standout reason for wanting to win these except that I’m sick and tired of hearing about them! WHAT is all the fuss?? Are they really ALL that and a bag of chips too?? I’m admittedly intrigued by all the hype…..that and my current headphones are the ones they give you when you fly Virgin Airlines.

    I recently had to trash my headphones. They were so old and the plastic had cracked. I could really use a pair of headphones to allow me to enjoy music without bothering anyone else.

    So would want a pair of Beats Studio HD headphones to ear the beat and archive these yellow 80’s Sony headphones!

  • kristen August 22, 2012, 12:23 pm

    i have been dealing with cheap, crappy headphones since as long as i can remember. something more important always manages to come up. but now that i am using my phone/ipod more to listen to music as i get out, i’m realizing that i want to drown out the sound of others causing a distraction. i’ve tried these out before and they’re amazing. i’m hoping my luck will pull thru and i’ll be sporting these before i know it!

  • Mariah machnik August 22, 2012, 1:37 pm

    I’ve been using $20 headphones for about 6-7 years. I love music & I use headphones for a few hours a day. But I don’t think my headphones are delivering the best sound possible. I’ve gone into best buy & tested out Beats & they’re amazing. I’ve been wanting a pair for a long time now but I haven’t been able to buy them because they’re so expensive. Good sound quality makes music that much more enjoyable. I’d love to finally have Beats. Thank you! Twitter: @mariahmachnik

  • Shan August 22, 2012, 3:30 pm

    I’d love to win a pair, because I’ve wanted to try them since they came out! Plus, my ear buds are constantly being snagged by children- and these are too large for them to hide in pockets!

    I could really use a great pair of earphones. I tried the beats at target and they sound amazing. I would love to own a pair.

    I would love these headphones. I gave a pair of Beats to my son-in-law for his birthday. They are amazing and with my intense love of music I would appreciate a pair for myself VERY much.

  • Matthew Pearce August 22, 2012, 11:20 pm

    I commute over 2 hours each day on the bus to and from work and the only thing that gets me through my trip is listening to music on my IPod. I’m a huge Dre fan since the early 90’s so half the time I’m listening to his music and what would be better than hearing Dre on Dre’s headphones! I don’t have the spare change to spend the money on the headphones myself right now so this would make my year! Thanks HSN and Gadgeteer for the chance!

  • Bridgette Bond August 22, 2012, 11:58 pm

    I need these headphones because I have started a new workout regimen to get healthy and to live a better life.. These headphones would help me to focus on my goal.. I’d really appreciate that type of drive in my workouts.

  • Danielle @DeeMBee79 August 23, 2012, 6:28 pm

    I would LOVE these headphones because I travel a lot need good quality headphones to drown out the background noise in the airplane :) The fact that they are compact is nice for travel too. Being comfortable to wear is a huge plus but most of all the sound quality is the most important factor to me. These headphones would enable music and podcasts to sound amazing! You can’t get that quality with just any headphones.

    I follow @HSN on Twitter (@TamaraBenningto) I really wnat to win these Beats Studio HD headphones for my daughter who’s 16th birthday was yesterday 8/23. She’s so addicted to music and really wanted a pair for her birthday but with the cost of going back to school for two teenagers it was too impossible to but them for her. Would be a dream for her if I won!

    I really want to win these beats headphones because I love to remix music and pretend to be a dj sometimes. Chloe Lukasiak also has beats and she is like my idol and whatever she has I would love to have! I wish I and enough money to buy a pair and that’s why I want to win! :)

  • De August 28, 2012, 8:38 pm

    I want a pair of Beats because I need new headphones to replace the white Apple ones that came with my iPod Touch. I never had a chance to listen to music with better and higher quality like the Beats. Not only do I love music but by winning the beats I could connect better with music. However I can never afford these Beats because they cost WAY TOO MUCH. I really wish I have a pair and I really want to win one. Please surprise me and choose me!!!!
