Our take on the Beats by Dr. Dre™ Executive™

by David Brown

Beats Executive over-ear noise-canceling headphones

First class looks and sound

Let Dr. Dre™ upgrade your headphones to first class. The Beats Executive headphones feature a sleek design that will look at home in the office or on a plane. And with their powerful noise-canceling technology, office noise and plane engine hum will disappear, leaving you alone with your music and free from distraction. Deep bass response will add impact to your tunes without overpowering the smooth mids and crisp highs that make these 'phones sound great with a wide variety of musical styles.

Built for style, comfort and durability

Brushed stainless steel and aluminum alloy give the Beats Executive a sophisticated look apropos of their name. The soft leather headband and cushioned earcups ensure long-lasting comfort, in the air or on the ground. The headphones fold flat to fit in the convenient hard shell travel case for easy portability.

Convenient phone and music controls

Want to take calls without taking off your headphones? The Beats Executive comes with a detachable cable that features an in-line remote and microphone for use with the iPhone®. The three-button remote lets you answer calls, hang up, and control the volume, while the built-in mic ensures clear, hands-free conversation. You can also skip music tracks and adjust the volume on Apple devices and other compatible music players. A standard miniplug cable is also included for devices that may not function with the remote cable.

Beats Executive over-ear noise-canceling headphones

The Beats Executive headphones fold up for easy storage in the supplied travel case, so they're easy to take anywhere.

From the review Beats Executive headphones: Bold sound and noise cancelation in a sleek new design

"Beats is extending its reach, with a new upscale design geared toward frequent travelers. But don't make the mistake of thinking Beats is just interested in creating status symbols. Their previous models boast impressive sound quality, and the new Executive further refines the Beats sound for a performance as cool as their sophisticated new look."

Features

Overview: The Beats Executive headphones are designed for business or more formal occasions. They have a sleek stainless steel and aluminum design with plush padded headband and earcups. They can be used for listening to music, or for carrying on a conversation on your smartphone.

Active Noise Cancellation: The Executive features battery-powered Active Noise Cancellation to shut out ambient noise so you can hear your music or conversation without outside interruption. Two "AAA" alkaline batteries (included) can be inserted into the left earcup to power the ANC.

On/Off Switch/Mute: The right earcup has an on/off switch. Moving the switch to the On position turns on the audio and the active noise cancellation. A green LED glows to indicate the power is turned on. In the Off position, there is no audio, no active noise cancellation, and the LED is off. The right earcup also has a mute button: press once to mute the audio; press again to un-mute.

Rotating Earcups: The earcup arms can rotate 90° in one direction, and will fold in for storage or packing in a suitcase.

Input: The Beats Executive has a 3.5mm input jack on the left earcup for plugging in the audio cable.

Dual Cables: The headphones include two 54" cables--one with an in-line remote/microphone, and one without. Both cables have a straight 3.5mm plug (headphone input) and a right-angled 3.5mm plug (phone/player output). A 3.5mm-to-1/4" plug adapter is included for connecting to devices with a full-sized headphone jack. The cable with the in-line remote and microphone can be used with a smartphone to answer and disconnect phone calls, and to pick up your end of the conversation. The remote can also control playback of your music on a digital media device. The remote controls are compatible with iPod, iPhone, and iPad for volume up/down, play/pause, next/previous track, fast forward/fast reverse, answer/hang up calls, and voice command. Limited functionality exists with HTC, Blackberry, and Android devices for play/pause, answer/hang up calls, and voice command.

Included Accessories: The Beats Executive comes with a 4" square cleaning cloth, an airline adapter, and a zippered hard shell carrying case.

Nice Headphones

Written By Nathan VO, Washington, DC on Saturday, June 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I like the looks and build quality of the headphones. They are a little heavy, but I do not notice once they are on. The only downside is that they require aaa batteries and don't have an auto-off switch.
Pros:
Sound and Build Quality, Looks
Cons:
They Require Batteries
