Beats Executive: Dre's headphones go corporate chic

 

The Beats by Dr. Dre Executive noise-canceling headphones have an appealing design, strong features, and good sound, but they don't quite measure up to the Bose QuietComfort 15 noise-canceling headphones.

The Beats by Dr. Dre Executive noise-canceling headphones have a sleek, sturdy design, fit comfortably, offer good sound for noise-canceling headphones, and come with two cords, one of which has an inline remote with microphone

They're expensive and a bit heavy, and there's a faint hiss with noise cancellation activated, and noise cancellation must be activated to get sound

Beats by Dr. Dre Executive

 

The Beats by Dr. Dre lineup of headphones continues to expand, and if the early models were targeted at athletes, pop stars in videos, and the people who love them, the latest addition, Beats Executive, is targeted at the traveling businessperson. At...

Quality audio performance for bass lovers at moderate volumes. Decent active noise cancellation. Comfortable fit. Two detachable cables—one with inline remote and microphone for mobile devices. Quality accessories

Distortion on deep bass tracks at top volumes. Noise cancellation produces audible hiss. Doesn't produce audio in passive mode. Runs on AAA batteries, not a rechargeable battery

The Beats by Dr. Dre Executive headphones deliver decent noise cancellation and powerful low-end thump, but there is serious competition to consider in this price range.

Even when the Beats by Dre headphone lineup was at the height of its popularity, we were on record as being less than enthusiastic about the headphones due to their universally high prices and so-so sonic performance -- issues Monster eventually...

The Beats Executive headphones are stylish and effective. Find out what makes them some of the top noise-blocking headphones in the full review.

The inline remote allows you to control your Apple devices and the volume

The Executives weigh a whopping 12 ounces, which is heavier than many other top noise-cancelling models

These headphones really do cut out noise and the well-designed exterior means you’ll look good wearing them.

Beats Executive review

 

Beats Studio headphones get a smart overhaul for the modern gentleman in the form of the Beats Executive. But do they justify the price tag?

Comfort ; Epic silence ; Rugged design and case

Batteries are essential ; Pricey

If you’re spending £269 on headphones for your smartphone, Beats Executive, like Beats Studio before them, are among the best you can buy. You will get better sound by spending more, but not from your smartphone or laptop - you’re then entering hi-fi...

Headphones with decent sound, but a fatal flaw.

Striking design, Mostly elegant hardware implementation of ANC

Catastrophic internal design, Quite expensive, Hissy noise cancellation, A bit heavy

Beats Executive review

 

The Beats Executive combine boisterous bass with noise-cancellation tech, but the latter proves to be the undoing of these boardroom-based cans. An irritating, audible hiss and the fact that these headphones only work with the noise-cancelling tech...

Punchy bass ; Balanced sound even at high volume ; Attractive style

Audible, ever-present hiss ; Sound-cancellation is non-optional ; Very expensive

Choose some less-than-subtle music, and it's possible to have a great time rocking out with these noisy cans. That just makes it more of a shame that the noise-cancelling feature is non-optional -- ideally I'd like to bypass the sound suppression tech...

Beats by Dr. Dre Executive

 

If you like huge bass, give these Beats a go – but there are too many caveats for us to be able to recommend them

Beautiful design and construction ; Natural midrange ; Sweet treble ; Inline mic and remote control

Noise-cancelling tech hisses ; Lack dynamic flair ; Bass is a little too tubby
