Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones

Beats headphones provide high sound quality and a range of styles that make it simple to listen to music, watch videos or add tunes to your workout. From studio designs that ensure clear tones across the sound spectrum to those that fit conveniently in a pocket or purse, there are headphones available that match the needs of nearly every listener.

Choosing the Right Size Beats Headphones
Headphones come in different sizes that make them ideal for different listening needs. Portable models are smaller and fit easily in a bag. These options include those that sit in the ear canal, the outer rim of the ear or that wrap around. Larger, over-ear headphones feature soft, padded cups that either enclose the ears or fit directly against them. Some over-ear Beats headphones fold down for increased portability, providing enhanced sound and convenience.

Understanding Beats Headphones Sound Quality
Headphone sound quality relies on the size of the driver, impedance and sound pressure levels. Drivers on portable earphones are smaller, which can limit the overall range of sound. Some portable models include dual drivers, providing richer tones at low and high sound levels. Sound pressure describes the maximum decibel level of the headphones. Both portable and over-ear models offer between 85 and 120 decibels, providing optimal sound levels for most listeners.

Impedance is the amount of power the headphone speakers require to produce sound. Earbuds and other portable designs require less power, making them ideal for use with smartphones, iPods and similar handheld devices. Over-ear Beats by Dre headphones need higher power levels for quality sound. Use these with receivers and equipment with larger amplifiers for increased sound quality.

How Are On-Ear and In-Ear Headphones Different?
Most portable headphones are in-ear or on-ear styles. In-ear models fit inside the ear canal and have rubber or silicone pads that seal in the sound and limit the amount of outside noise. On-ear options sit on the bowl or opening of the canal and have foam pads for comfort. These styles let the listener hear more environmental noise, which makes them a good choice for wearing when walking, running or any other time alertness is necessary.

What Noise Reduction Features Are Available on Beats Headphones?
Beats by Dre headphones are available with noise-canceling or isolation features. Noise-canceling models block out exterior noise, ensuring you can listen to music or videos without being disrupted. Some of these headphones have closed backs that simply block out noise or isolate the sound in the ear. Others feature active noise reduction and send out opposite signals in response to outside sound. This results in hearing only the sounds coming from the headphones.

Are There Benefits to Wireless Beats Headphones?
Wireless headphones allow free movement while listening to music or watching videos. Wireless options connect with Bluetooth for listening to devices from across the room. Many wireless headphones include in-line microphones and controls that let you skip tracks or answer phone calls without going to the device. Wireless styles eliminate long cords, protecting against tangling or unplugging when the listener is working out or being active.
