The Beats Pro by Dr. Dre from Monster Headphones

CNET rating: 4 stars out of 5 (Excellent)

The good: Quality construction; dual input/output audio ports for communal listening; thumping bass; ear cushions can be removed and replaced.

The bad: May not be comfortable for everyone; weight is a little on the heavy side; some songs can sound harsh; travel case doesn't match up to the professional packaging of its predecessors.

The cost: $325.99 - $399.95

The bottom line: The Beats Pro by Dr. Dre from Monster Headphones deliver a sturdy design and top-notch sound quality for those who enjoy skull-shattering bass. If you're a casual listener and can afford them, they're a worthy investment, but if you're an audio purist then you may want to comparison shop.
