While super producer Dr. Dre is currently busy working with artists like Kendrick Lamar and the DOC to put the finishing touches on his final album Detox, the team at Monster is celebrating that by releasing a limited edition version of the Beats By Dr. Dre Pro headphones. The timing gives super fans a chance to pick up the headphones before the album drops.
The Limited Edition Beats by Dr. Dre Detox Pro headphones were styled by Dr. Dre and have an all cool all black look that is drastically different from the original silver/red/white version of the Beats Pro headphones. The head strap has the Detox album logo, as does the carrying bag. To add to the exclusivity of the set, the headphones are individually numbered.
One of the best features (aside from the sound) of the headphones is their sturdiness. These headphones feel sturdy without being overly heavy or bulky. The ear cups are comfortable and they do a good job of blocking out external sounds without necessitating a noise cancelling feature.
The sound of the Beats Pro was what you would expect from the technical minds at Monster and the finely tuned ears of Dr. Dre. Clear high ends, solid but distortion free low ends and isolated sounds. The headphones really work like miniature studio monitors.
The Limited Edition Beats by Dr. Dre Detox Pro over-ear headphones are available at participating retailers for a suggested retail price of $499.
