Qualidade sonora excelente.

Fone muito bonito com a qualidade sonora excelente, bastante resistente e bateria de longuíssima duração. Experiência completa caso seja usuário de iOS. Mas caso esteja em busca de graves fortes e queira seguir com a marca beats, talvez este não seja o modelo ideal. Neste fone a experiência é que se tenham todas as frequências das músicas bem definidas, e não que alguns elementos sobreponham outros.

Pros

  • Design
  • Resistência
  • Bateria
  • Qualidade Sonora

Cons

  • Experiência completa apenas em iOS
  • Graves menos fortes se comparados a outros modelos Beats
