Beats By Dr. Dre Beats Pro Headphones
These headphones are all about style and sleekness. They are guaranteed to turn heads, if worn in public. The design includes a well thickened padded black headband, and the ear cups are oblong in shape, padded in a well-cushioned, shiny material. They are pretty comfortable to wear as they easily fit on all size of heads. The ear cups have an external metallic disc that when pressed, mutes the audio. The padded band can be a little stiff at first, but after a while, becomes very comfortable to use. The audio experience is marvelous and pretty crisp. The unique feature of these headphones is that these are washable. Surprised? No, that’s true, the headphones are water-proof, so you can wash them whenever they become dirty. The coiled cable of the Beats By Dr. Dre Beats Pro headphones is long and durable, giving you extra length when you need it. For me, these headphones are definitely one of the most luxurious accessories for MP3 players!
