Let the Music Stir You

by A. Brown

"People aren't hearing all the music. Artists and producers work hard in the studio perfecting their sound. But people can't really hear it with normal headphones. Most headphones can't handle the bass, the detail, the dynamics. Bottom line, the music doesn't move you,” Dr. Dre asserts.

You too can use the sound/hearing equipment big name recording artists use in the studio. Beats by Dr. Dre High Performance Headphones from Monster are all the rage. Chances are your teenager wants a set. They are available in a variety of styles.

An over-ear set, the Just Beats Solo inspired by Justin Beiber is $199.95. Desire a High Definition listening experience? The Solo HD Over-Ear set comes in at $229.95. This set is said to protect the bass sound and give the listener the full experience of their favorite music.

Got a future recording artist in the family? They may prefer Beats Pro, which is set up particularly for use in the studio. Beats Pro comes in at $449.95. Prefer an in-ear style? There are also several of those to choose from. You can grab yourself a set of Diddy Beats for a mere $179.95. Lady Gaga fan in the house? Then, pick up a set of Heartbeats by Lady Gaga! All the sound quality and unique style one could want for $149.95.

Prefer listening to music while on your laptop? You’re even covered there! There is a selection of HP laptops that feature Beats Audio. Thought all this covered Beats by Dr. Dre by Monster? You can order a Beat Box for $449.95 to share the superior listening experience with the room-at-large. What better time than now to feel like a big name recording artist?
