Fledging audiophiles looking to purchase a high-performance pair of noise-canceling headphones in the $300 to $400 dollar range, may be deciding between the stylized over-ear Beats By Dre ‘Studio’ from Monster and the wireless on-ear PXC 310BT from Sennheiser.

Ultimately, the edge in performance here is clearly weighted in favor of the Monster Beats By Dre ‘Studio’ headphones, both in terms of noise cancelation and sound quality. However, the comparative usability of the two pairs is split; the Sennheiser 310 BT is wireless and carries less than half the weight, while the cushier Beats By Dre ‘Studio’ sit over-ear and incorporate direct controls over phone calls.

 

Key Similarities

  • Price (roughly)
  • Effectiveness of Noise-Canceling electronics
  • Strong Brand Reputations
  • Integrated player controls

 

Key Differences

  • Styling (over-ear, on-ear)
  • Battery (type, endurance)
  • Sennheiser works with battery/noise-reduction off
  • Sennheiser is wireless, Bluetooth connectivity, and comes with longer cable (more convenient, portable)
  • Sennheiser: Much smaller, more portable (4.2 oz. verse 9.6 oz)
  • Monster: Includes phone connect/disconnect controls, microphone for calls
  • Different Sensitivities (Med-High, Med for Sennheiser; Very High for Monster)
  • Monster better overall sound quality (Monster: Very Good, Sennheiser: Good)

  3. Leuri Leuri says:
    to be honest my frdines have beats and i bought souls to be different but after hearing the beats and the souls hands down i pick the souls. dont get me wrong beats and souls are both very good headphones but from what iv experienced beats have good audio but not great audio and in order to cover the fact that there audio isnt the greatest they just have really heavy bass and when you have that it makes up for your audio problems because you cant hear that much detail over the bass. as for the souls there audio just stands out to me because when first putting them on i was just expecting regular famous people quality headphones but really what i got was a very very clear sound. there base isnt as heavy as the beats but its close enough to where you can hear it leveled out with the rest of the audio over all its just a really balanced sound plus the souls have a high and low gain switch that makes them sound as good as they possibly can which i think in my opinion beats the pros out. in comfort there both about the same but the souls have a quilted headband and you dont think it makes a difference but believe me it does when you wear them for a while. as far as looks and features go beats seam more mainstream but souls seam more stylish to me. i hope this helps some people. *** MAKE SHURE BEFOR YOU SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THESE HEADPHONES THAT YOU LISTEN TO THEM A LOT FOR A COUPLE DAYS SO THAT YOU CAN BURN THE HEADPHONES IN (BURN IN SIMPLY MEANS THAT WHEN YOU FIRST BUY THEM EVERYTHINGS BRAND NEW AND NEVER USED SO ITS NOT GUNNA SOUND LIKE IT WILL WHEN THE BASS IN THE HEADPHONES IS LOOSENED AND ITS ALL COPESTETIC IN THERE) ***
