Attention sound engineers, DJs, musicians, and hard core music lovers: Beats Pro is the reference headphone designed by audio professionals for audio professionals. Particularly, those who prefer a balanced yet forceful sound across the spectrum.
Constructed from strong yet lightweight aluminum, Beats Pro resists vibrations, so you never hear unwanted artifacts, just pure, clear sound. And knowing just how crazy music life can get, we built Beats Pro tough for heavy duty use amid rough treatment.
If you've ever wanted to share a mix without removing your headphones, now you can. Dual input/output cable ports let you share mixes by daisy-chaining headphones, so others can you hear it in their cans. Plus, convenient flip-up ear cups let you monitor the room with Beats Pro still on your head.
Now hear this: three awesome reasons to get excited about the Beats Pro ear cushions. Yes, ear cushions! One, they're so plush and comfortable; you'll wear Beats Pro for hours and forget you have them on. Two, they deliver advanced passive sound isolation, keeping the music in and ambient sounds just audible enough. Three, they're washable so you don't have to sweat sweating in them.
Unlike the Beats Studio, the Beats Pro are made for Club DJ use and therefore are built to withstand the type of abuse a mobile DJ would put them through. The frame of the headphones are made of solid aluminum that in no way bends or flexes. Unlike some other headphones I have used, the Beat Pro still feels strong when the earcups are extended or flipped up. This is because even the extender piece is made of solid metal. Only time will tell if the electronics hold up but I can say with complete certainty that the frames of the Beats Pro is practically indestructible.
In our review of the Beats Studio we mentioned that they delivered a very crisp sound that emphasized the high end of the music. On the other hand we found that Beats Pro puts extreme emphasis on the low end of the sound spectrum. When it comes to booming base, the Pros cannot be beat. However the emphasis on the low end means that on some songs you will find that the mids and highs get drowned out and dont sound as clear or crisp as they do on the Beats Studios or other DJ headphones. Luckily snares and kicks come through strong, which is a must when beat matching. I was able to turn my mixer up to the maximum listenable volume without the Beats Pro showing any signs of sound degradation.
We have heard that some smaller MP3 players are unable to properly power the Pro's, since they do not require batteries, unlike the Studios. We tested the Pro's on an iPhone as well as an older iRiver model and in both cases the sound quality was good. It is possible that an iPod nano or shuffle could not be able to provide the proper juice to the Pros and as a result the sound quality could suffer.
The Monster Beats Pros come with a number of features targeted for the DJs. I was most impressed by the ability to connect the included red patrially-coiled audio cable to either the right or left side of the headphones. This may sound trivial, but I found it very useful because I personally have my Traktor X1 on the left of my turntable and therefore was able to keep the cord on my right out of my way. The dual inputs can also be used for daisy chaining (you can attach another set of headphones to the Beats Pro and a friend can listen to your music) or even listening to 2 inputs at once (can't think of any reason why you would need this). Also the inputs have the ability to lock the audio cord into them so they don't fall out if they get pulled. Lastly, each earcup can be flipped up so that you can listen to the output while you mix in a new track.
The Beats Pro's solid aluminum construction means that it weighs considerable more than other headphones. I found the Beats Pro to be much heavier than my Allen and Heath Xone XD:53 headphones. Also, although the earcups are made of padded leather, I found that the tightness of the headphones made them somewhat uncomfortable after extended listening. DJs with larger heads (my hat size is 7 ?) may find that the Beats Pro squeezes their head too tight. The round shape of the cups also means that the headphones rest on your ears instead of over them. This helps isolate sound but ends up making the Beats Pro less comfortable in my opinion. In comparison the Beats Studios have earcups that fit over your head and are light and loose enough that you forget you are wearing them.
The Monster Beats Pro are a great choice for a professional DJ looking for a sturdy pair of headphones that are built for club use and deliver booming bass. They could also be a good choice for a non-professional user who is primarily interested in style and bass. However, if crisp highs or comfort are your primary concerns, then you should probably look at the Studios or another brand. At $450 retail, you may also be able to find a similar sounding headphone at a lower price, but if you are not on a budget and you value style as well as solid construction the Beats Pros cannot be beat.

Why headphones from payapmusic are cheaper than the authentic?
For most Monster fans, it is well know that Monster set up OEM factories in Guangdong and Shanghai in China. From special access, payapmusic gets the same wires and chips as those of authentic Monster products from the Shanghai OEM factory, and then assembles the new headphones. From the outward appearance and the acoustic effect, they are the same as the original ones. It performs very well on the low frequency, linear extension and active bass. In appearance, it is blameless! However, for the suspicious or buyers who pursue authentic products, please think carefully before the purchasing. Thank you! Headphones are available on first-come-first-served basis as payapmusic has a day limit quantity of sale as 50 pairs. Monster does not give many orders to the OEM factory every week, so Studio and SOLO HD is less in storage. Thus, please just pre-order if you need, we will ship out the order as soon as we get the products.
We strongly recommend customers going to the Apple shop or Monster Beats shop to try the original headphones before ordering from payapmusic.com. Buyers can also invite experts to test the acoustic! This is just to prevent any unnecessary quarrels for any acoustic deficiency issue. Well, the buyers have the final say. It is not much helpful for us the seller to say how good the products are, right? If our headphones are not as good effect as that of the original ones, we will accept customers' return sincerely. There might somone asking that why some other online shops sell the same products evern cheaper? Here, what I would like to say is, please do not compare our payapmusic products with those less quality headphones. There are only us payapmusic produces the 1:1 copy of monster beats by dre studio and solo HD headphones. Our materials and accessaries are the same as the original, our cost is much higher and the outward appearance is perfect. And, we have a limited production of 50 pieces every day. While the less quality products in other shops, the outward appearance is very rough with big crack; the leather is fake leather with poor permeability; it is easy to break and the acoustic effect is very bad. Monster Beats by Dr. Dre headphones of payapmusic use fully enclosed design, which is has excellent sound insulation. With soft leather ear cushion, it is very comfortable. Its sound is rather low pass, performing well in descending, intensity and elastic, keeping up with fast and close rhythm. It is very suitable for R&B, Hipop, Rock and electronic sounds users. If interested in the Beats headphones, customers could purchase on the online shop payapmusic.com or in the pro shops. However, we are confident! Nothing is good or bad but by comparison!
For delivery and return: we promise all our headphones are Factory Products (that means, made of original wires and chips). To prevent the case that some buyers might return the low-price and low-quality fake products to us and get our good payapmusic products, we will take the photos of our real products before the shipment. Before the delivery, to make sure that the item is perfect, we will listen to the songs of Black Eyed Peas with the headphones. All products will be packaged with protection films, so the headphones do not damage easily in transit.
Having any objection to the above terms, please do not purchase.
Tips for Using Headphones:
1. Choose high quality headphones
2. Try to keep the volume between 40db ~ 60db ( like the volume of normal conversation, better be soft and not harsh ). Do not turn up for exciting seeking so as to avoid biting the ears and damaging hearing.
3. After listening for half and hour, take down the headphones and let your ears have a rest. Do remember not using for long time.
4. Do not wear headphones to listening to music when riding, driving or walking, so as to avoid accidents.
5. If appearing unpleasant symptoms like dizziness, earache, occlusion and so on, stop using headphones for a short time and be sure to get plenty of rest.
6. If appearing tinnitus ( like cicada crying, whistle, metallic sound and so on) or progressive reduction in hearing capacity, must go to the ENT to have a check and get the treatment in time. It is very importing to prevent deafness.
