not bad but can be better
Too Much Ambient Noise
I bought the Executive by Beats following reviews I read, in order to use it in airplane for the noise cancelling capabilities. I also tried it for a few days at home, to listen to music. <br />The design is really good, durable (metal, and not plastic). Looks like a very good item.<br />First problem: I ordered two, and one came with a broken cover. I had to ask three times for a replacement, and gave up because it came with the same broken part the three times. Total: 1 out of 5 was flawless...<br />Second problem: there is a slight background hiss, which becomes annoying when you are listening at low volume and between songs. <br />Because of my inability of getting a second unbroken headphone, I decided to try other brands. Right after comparing the executive and the Bose QuietComfort 15, I decided to get the Bose: noise cancelling it superb, much better than the Executive (I compared the two headphones while standing close to a noisy heat exchanger unit), sound quality as good as the executive, and much lighter to wear (no metal, only plastic, but still seems durable). <br />Well, I brought back my first Executive (the one that was came broken), and bought two Bose QuietComfort 15. I do not regret it.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
