 Beats Pro Wired Over-Ear HeadphoneNow we will have look at an alternative, the Beats Pro Wired Over-Ear Headphone. Beats have taken the audio world by storm in recent years. The Beats Pro will definitely give you something professional-looking, but it comes with a steep price. There are plenty of claims that Beats headphones are perfect for the studio and are designed for sound engineers and musicians, but the consensus is that there are plenty of superior options out there and a lot of them are on this list. The value for money just doesn’t seem to be there and the sound quality doesn’t seem to match up to the Audio-Technica or V-MODA headphones.
