Monster Beats Detox Pro
It’s no surprise that the top model in Dr. Dre’s headphone line delivers an “overcooked” bottom. Fortunately, they also “give highs and mids their due.”

Beyerdynamic T 70 p
It’s a cliché to say great headphones let you rediscover music, “but these do just that.” Their “crisp” sound reveals as if by magic such details as the tiny inhales of a favorite vocalist.
