Pros
excellent stability and ability to hold position in ear. Very good sound all around, does lack in bass range, but to untrained ears they sound amazing.
Cons
For trained ears these phones will lack in overal sound quality, especialy for the price. fragile cord. evidently a rough warranty system, although I have confirmed many people having no problems except timeliness on returning warrantied items

I bought them from the beats store in NYC on 10/10/12 and they have performed excellently ever since...i did break them in. hopefully I never have to return to that store with any issues, but alas at least i have a store to hold responsible...i believe the only strictly beats store in the world. I also paid 150 dollars for em.

Pros
Buyer Beware - Garbage in a Box.
Cons
Dre Beats does not warrant it's products from defects and substandard quality.
• • •

These headphones were used lightly less than 10 times before one ear piece stopped playing sound. I contacted Dre Beats and, although the product was defective, they refused to warrant the product. I would highly encourage potential buyers to purchase a different and more reliable and reputable brand of headphones over the Dre Beats line. Dre Beats is garbage dressed in nice packaging. Your money is better spent on Bowers and Wilkinson or some other reputable brand.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
