Anyone that spends a decent amount of time listening to music through headphones knows what a wide range of sound quality and comfort you can get from different models of headphones. I spend a good portion of my days with my headphones on to help block out the noise around me and to listen to my favorite bands to help me focus and concentrate. I’ve gone through many different models over the years in search of the most comfortable options with the best sound, and I know that what many people recommend and are looking for are Beats By Dre headphones. There are a few variations among the different models of Beats By Dre, so I wanted to take some time to highlight some of the features and differences you’ll find.
Beats By Dre can be separated into two general categories; over-the-ear/on-ear headphones and earphones. We’ll take a look at both, and start with the models of headphones.
Beats By Dre Headphones
The Beats By Dre Solo HD headphones are a great place to start when considering Beats By Dre headphones with their lighter, more compact design. Of course, these design features don’t compromise sound quality, and you’ll still get the clear highs and the deep bass that Beats By Dre headphones are known for. They come in a variety of colors including black, red, green, blue, and more. They also have a folding design to make them easier to carry with you.
Taking the step to the Beats By Dre Mixr headphones, you’ll discover an incredibly durable set of headphones that are built to cater to the needs of DJs. They’re made with a more flexible headband and also feature rotating earcups that allow for single-ear monitoring, perfect for DJs. These headphones are also unique in that they have an audio cable port on each earcup which allows you to daisy-chain your audio and share it. Basically, you can be plugged in to your audio source with one input, and someone else can plug into the other audio port to hear what you’re hearing. With DJs in mind, this model was also built to continue to deliver quality, deep bass even as you turn up the volume. They come in a variety of colors including black, white, blue, green, yellow, and more. They also have a folding design to make it easier to take them with you wherever you go.
The Beats By Dre Studio headphones are the original model of Beats, and feature active noise cancellation. Powered by 2 AAA batteries, the noise cancellation feature on these headphones helps to block out external noise so that you can listen to the amazing sound quality that they produce with fewer distractions. Also, you’ll find that the Beats logo on the side of these headphones isn’t just for looks, it also acts as a mute button when pressed. They come in a variety of colors including black, white, red, and blue, and feature a folding design to make it easier to carry them with you.
The Beats By Dre Wireless headphones allow you to enjoy the sound quality that Beats are known for without a cord getting in the way. These headphones can connect to Bluetooth-enabled devices from up to 30’ away, and even have audio controls on the earcups so you don’t even have to pull out your MP3 player or walk back to your audio source to change songs or adjust the volume. They feature a rechargeable battery that can provide up to 10 hours of playback and are easily rechargeable with the provided USB charging cable. They feature a folding design that makes it easier to carry them with you.
The Beats By Dre Executive headphones are designed to provide you with incredible sound quality wherever you travel. They feature a fold-flat design that makes it easier to pack them for travel, and also have active noise cancellation powered by 2 AAA batteries to filter out the external noise that goes along with traveling, whether it’s on a plane, train, or in a car. They’re lightweight and have pivoting earcups so you can comfortably wear them for extended periods of time.
The Beats By Dre Pro headphones are designed so you can experience music the way it was meant to be heard. They feature a sound-isolating design that helps to reduce external sounds to improve the clarity of the audio coming through the headphones. This is different than active noise cancellation because it doesn’t require a powered device or batteries to filter the noise. They also feature dual audio ports like the Mixr headphones so you can share what you’re listening to. They feature a folding design that makes it easier to carry them with you.
Now that we've taken a look at the headphone options that Beats By Dre offers, let's take a look at the earphone styles.
Beats By Dre Earphones
The Beats By Dre urBeats earphones are a great way to upgrade from the earbuds that may have come with your MP3 player. They feature an ultralightweight design with a durable chrome finish, and have a sealed, in-ear design that helps to produce a level of sound quality you may not expect from an earbud-style headphone. They come with 4 pairs of ear tips so you can find the best fit for your ear for comfort and to help block out external noise.
The Beats By Dre Tour earphones are a compact and portable way to get sound quality that rivals many headphones out there. These earphones feature high-efficiency drivers so you can crank up the volume without distorting the sound. The sealed, in-ear design with the 7 pairs of ear tips to choose from allows you to find the perfect fit to minimize external noise and maximize the audio quality.

The Beats By Dre Heartbeats earphones, designed by Lada Gaga, allow you to look stylish while still enjoying incredible sound. They have gunmetal studs on a leathery cord, and feature a sound-isolating seal that helps to reduce ambient noise for clearer audio. They also have a tangle-free flat cord and come with 7 pairs of ear tips to find the perfect fit.
The Beats By Dre Powerbeats earphones are a clip-on style earbud that help to keep the earphones in place even during physical activity. Not only is this a functional design for many earphone users, it also allows for the earphones to have two speakers inside each earbud, delivering smooth vocals with clear highs and deep bass. They are also designed to allow in a level of ambient noise so you’re still aware of your surroundings while listening to your music.

Hello, I was looking at the beats, and i am thinking about getting the Pros, but i have seen some people with the all red ones and looking online on Best Buy they only have the all white ones and the all white with some black on it. I was wondering if there was a way to maybe special order a pair of the all red ones or do you strictly only sell whats there?

If I'm not mistaken, what we have listed online is the selection we have available. I do not believe you would have the option of special ordering a pair in Red.
