Beats By Dr. Dre Headphones Review

Packaging /Bundle

The Beats come in very solid packaging with a heavy weight to it insuring great protection is afforded your new $300 beauties while the outside cover contains all information needed to incite your interest. There is a nice great shot of the headphones themselves, with further shots of the speaker and ear cup design and last but not least a great shot of Dr. Dre looking quite thoughtful in reflection to what he has brought to the audio world. At least that is what we would like to say he is thinking about.

The black outside cover pulls off to boast a contrasting red inner box complete with logos and Velcro snaps to keep everything in check.

The inside box opens similar to a book, with all accessories and cabling on the left hand side and the Beats contained in their protective road case on the right hand side. Monster spared no expense on the bundle which comes complete with 2X AAA Duracell batteries to power the noise cancellation circuitry and genuine Monster brand cabling. The bundle includes two cables for the Beats, one cable for use with MP3/CD players and one for use with the Apple iPhone. This cable features a built-in answer button and microphone for your phone. You can also use the Beats with a Blackberry and other music enabled phones.

Full bundle Includes:
  • Touring Case
  • Cleaning Cloth
  • 2 AAA Duracell Batteries
  • Airline adapter
  • 6.3mm to 3.5mm adapter
  • 3.5mm cable
  • Monster iSoniTalk cable

The polishing cloth is a great addition as the Black finish on the Beats is very shiny, you could call it a piano finish. The cloth will keep them looking great well you’re out on the road. We all want to look great while we are out right?
