The VModa Crossde Wireless looks very similar to its predecessor, but its been significantly…
Grabbing these cans, the first thing thatll strike you is the sheer of the things the massive earcups will easily eclipse even the most prominent of lugs. Theyre not light, either. Constructed mostly of aluminium, the Beats Pros feel very substantial. The good news is, we reckon the hefty metal frame will stand up to a few knocks. The notsogood news is that they feel really heavy on your head.
Since these soundmuffs have a closedback design, you get a good deal of sound isolation with these on your head. We tested them on the London Tube and found they did a reasonable job of blocking out the horrifying sound of our fellow man. Its still not as much sound isolation as youd get with a set of innerear headphones, but its a pretty good showing.
That Dr Dre is putting his PhD to good use the Beats headphone line has proved incredibly popular, and since we reviewed theBeats Solosback in January, weve been spotting the bassthumping bad boys destroying the eardrums of trendy teens the nation over. Building on that success, Monster is releasing a set of new Beats by Dr Dreheadphones, including these the Beats Pro, which will set you back a monstrous .
The Bottom LineThe Monster Beats by Dr Dre Pros arent the audiophilegrade cans the price tag would have you believe, and there are a few design niggles. Still, its a long time since weve had so much fun with a set of headphones.

Its not necessarily a dealbreaker, though we never found them uncomforly weighty. More of an issue is if youre walking around, or indeed indulging in a spot of headbanging, you might find the Pros gaining momentum and sliding off your ears. That heavy look does give the Pros a very definite , though, and the sheer of them will ensure they turn a few heads.
Each earcup swivels up for easy storage inside the headband, which cuts down their if youre carting these phones around with you. The cable is thick and rubberised with a coiled section, which should give you a little extra freedom if you need to be further from your music source for a moment.
Another neat feature is that theres a cable socket on each earcup, with the unused socket serving as an output, so you can hook up another set ofheadphonesand daisychain the sound from the Pros to the attached set of phones. We imagine this would come in handy for communal listening, or professional deejaying. We dont think its the intended purpose, but you can also plug in two sound sources to the Pros one to each earcup if, for whatever reason, you want to listen to two songs at the same time. Cool for amateur mixing, perhaps.
These are quite leaky, however. Its not so bad when youve got them attached to your head, but if you break that seal, expect everyone else on the bus to be hearing your thumping choons. Admittedly, thats not a problem for you, but if youre planning on using these in a quiet office, its something to bear in mind.

Listening for extended periods of time was comforle enough, though because the earcups themselves are quite shallow, we did notice a little pain setting in after a few hours due to our ears pressing against the inside of the cups themselves, so thats something to watch for.
So, in terms of design, the Pros are a little rough around the edges. But these little niggles will melt into delightful quirks when you actually pump some music through these beasts.
