    I had a pair of Solos and was impressed.. but not for the price. For $99 it's a bit more reasonable, especially since they don't require a battery. I ended up getting the Studios a few months later ($160 with BBY discount).

    They're not worth $200 considering what $200 will buy in terms of headphones. I'd opt for them if they were $100 though, they're good for $100, overpriced at $200, if that makes sense.

    They definitely arent the BEST. but for 100 dollars they would be quite a steal :). they sound very good and dont distort in the upper ranges.
    if you dont mind me asking, how are you getting them for 99? :)

    They sound about as good as Bose in ear headphones.

    In reference to some high end headphones, you have to be careful because your iPod or iPhone won't have enough juice to really power them up and will sound like crap. High end Sennheiser's are a good example of this (I can't speak for other brands).

    Even for $100 you are paying about $60 for looks. I cannot recommend these given the superior alternatives.

    But that's the "quality" you get in Monster. I believe the Apple Store has these for demo, but I could be wrong. That's the true test, not what some people on the internets say.

    The reason I like them is because they have the iphone controls (including volume) on the line. Are there any better headphones with the controls that you can reccomend?

    I just bought the beats but am thinking about returning them if I can find a viable alternative.

    First of all forget about the overpricing and sound quality, the built quality is the worst i have ever seen. Even a pair of $5 headphones will have better quality.

    really? i haven't heard many complaints about the actual sturdiness of the headphones. I thought they really clicked into place when folded up and unfolding seemed to cause no real issues that concerned me about breakage.

    However, sound quality and comfort were absolutely abysmal. Unforgivable in the $200 price range. I don't think I'd even consider them at $100 honestly. Plenty of other headphones that are better. It's sort of a "hipster" tax on these. They might look cool and all but wow. I sure wouldn't want to listen to them. So much bass, really muffles everything else. Bleh.

    Also, you bumped a one-and-a-half year old thread. I'm pretty sure the OP is long gone ;)
