I just bought a pair of these a couple weeks ago and I am absolutely in love with them. My husband has a pair of the beats, & they don't even compare to these margaritaville headphones. Such vivid sound, and I was surprised at how much bass these produce. They are SO comfortable. Usually headphones bother my ears, especially if I have any earrings in, but these don't. They are just as compact as the beats, and also have another input so you and a friend/family member can hook your headphones up and listen together. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase! I'd recommend these to anyone.
