Your honest opinion on Beats Pros by DR. DRE and post your favorite AR

Beats are $60 headphones that sell for hundreds because of the brand name. You could spend half that and get a nice pair of Sennheisers.

Also if this is accurate

using them for studio work of some type

Then you should be buying monitor headphones such as Audio Technica ATH-M50s or IAIAIA TMA-1s. You'll hear the full range of sound, un-EQ'd, with extraordinary clarity and no emphasis on any piece of the sound with headphones like those, which is invaluable for someone working in a professional/studio environment.

ALSO please for the f***ing love of God don't buy Bose either. They're no less guilty than Beats of overpricing their subpar quality goods.

By the way, if you spend >$300 on headphones you're going to need to factor in another $110+ for a dedicated headphone DAC/AMP in order to get the most out of your headphones.

They're good quality, but not for their price range. They get matched/bested by $150 Audio Technica ATH-M50s, easily bested by ~$230 AKG 701s and Beyerdynamic DT 880s or 990s, and they're in the same price range as the much higher calibre Sennheiser HD650s. All of those, sans maybe the Senns, have very rugged build quality. I personally have a pair of DT 990s, and if looks matter to you, they're highly customizable as well as being super comfortable. Hell, I'd even say my old $100 HD555s had comparable sound to Beats Pros.

My favourite assault rifle in this game so far is the AN94, but the M14 from CoD4 was my favourite in the series.

I wouldn't recommend them simply because they can break easily and come with a cloth pouch instead of a hard case.

If you really want a pair of Beats TC, buy a replica pair from DHGate for $90 or so. They look and sound identical to the real ones, I assure you.

And my favorite is the AN-94, first gun I even got gold with legitly.
