Bring Beats to the club

Now you can get the same skull-thumping bass and sparkling detail of the renowned Beats by Dr. Dre™ in a DJ-style headphone. The Beats Mixr headphones feature swiveling earcups designed for DJs who need one ear monitoring the external environment while the other ear is listening to the upcoming track.

Beats MIXR DJ Headphones

The Mixr's earcups swivel for DJ use. (Black model shown)

Beats enlisted DJ/producer extraordinaire David Guetta to help develop a sturdy, comfortable headphone built for frequent trips to the club or studio. The Mixr is lightweight and durable, with a highly flexible headband and fold-up design perfect for easy storage and portability. The earcups are extendable and move in just about any direction you can push them — important for a good fit to seal in that signature Beats sound. Easily swivel one earcup away from your ear while the other earcup remains securely in place.

Two jacks and two cables for versatility

The Mixr offers miniplug jacks on both the right and left earcup, so you can plug in the detachable cord on whichever side works for your setup. Or use both inputs to daisy chain a second pair of headphones so someone else can listen in. The Mixr comes with two cords: one coiled cable for avoiding tangles when moving between turntables and record crates; and one with an in-line remote for use with compatible mobile devices like the iPhone® and iPad®.

  • swiveling earcups for DJ use

These feel very tight on my head and I have a small head. They also don't fold easily. Will not purchase these again. They sound great but are uncomfortable

Pros: look & sound great

Cons: way too tight - impossible to wear for more than a few minutes

Could probably buy equivalent or better for cheaper, but the brand name and design was what I was looking for for a gift for my wife.

Pros: Sturdy, looks good, great sound. Bass is just right, not too overpowering, not too weak.

Cons: pricey

Product Research


Overview: The Beats Mixr headphones are designed expressly for DJs. They are built to be heard in a noisy environment, yet comfortable enough for long listening sessions. Made of durable materials, the Beats Mixr headphones can withstand the rigors of a DJ gig or a live performance.

Rotating Earcups: You can use the Beats Mixr headphones for dual- or single-ear operation. The earcup arms can rotate 270° (180° backwards or 90° forward) to allow you to swivel one earcup behind your ear or use both earcups for total isolation.

Dual Inputs: The Beats Mixrs have 3.5mm input jacks on both earcups so you can plug into either the left or right side. You can plug in another pair of headphones into the unused jack to share what you're listening to in a daisy-chain connection.

Dual Cables: The headphones include two cables--a 5-1/2' partially-coiled cable and a shorter cable with an in-line remote and microphone for use with a smartphone or portable digital media device. A 3.5mm-to-1/4" plug adapter is included. 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 Mixr comes with a 4" square cleaning cloth and a zippered semi-hard carrying case.
