Bumping Raphael Saadiq’s “Good Man” through a set of Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones, it sounds like the man—Saadiq, not Dre—is there in the room. It gets that personal, at least when you’re listening to bass-intense rock, blues, or hip-hop. These cans also feature active noise canceling, powered by a pair of AAA batteries, that can mute the din of a 767 engine. A microphone on the cable allows them to double as a cell-phone headset, too. QUIRKS+CONCERNS: All that bass means higher pitches fall flat.
