Beats EP review


A solid offering for the price

Affordable price tag ; Solid sound for the price ; Cool, comfortable design

Headphone arms don’t fold down ; No wireless option ; Excessively long cable

The Beats EP are Beats headphones for the masses. Offering a more balanced sound and cheaper price tag than their big brothers, they appeal while still offering that iconic logo that’s so coveted by many. They’re not perfect, but for the price they’re...

The Beats EP on-ear headphones are one of the cheapest in the Beats range. Without the added expense of Bluetooth technology or noise cancelling, they could be a great way to get quality sound without spending too big. We sent these headphones to our...

Beats EP review: Beats on a budget are brilliant, not basic


Wallet-friendly price tag Comfortable for prolonged listening Cool, minimalist design

Sound isn't the fullest No wireless options Can't collapse for simple storage

The Beats EP are anything but cheap and cheerful. They're pleasingly affordable, yes, but back this up with some cool styling and solid if far from groundbreaking sounds. They're exactly what you'd want from a pair of headphones that sport that iconic...

Beats EP review


Beats makes plenty of headphones with sky-high prices, but its entry-level EP headphone is a surprisingly good value. The list price is $100, £90 and AU$140, but you can find it online in the US and UK for about a third off -- closer to $70 and £60.The...

Reinforced with stainless steel, the affordable Beats Ep is sturdily built and sounds good for the money. It's relatively comfortable for an on-ear model and includes an inline microphone for calls.

Doesn't fold up or fold flat; on-ear design has its downsides (clamps down on your ears).

The Beats EP may be a simple, wired, on-ear headphone, but it's arguably Beats' best headphone for the money.

Beats EP Review


Beats EP stereo headphones have a frequency response of 20 to 20,000Hz, which is the range of normal human hearing. Because of this, they provide incredible clarity, good balance and crisp bass. These headphones work with a wide variety of music genres...

The Beats EP headphones are affordable compared to higher-end models by the company, but they still have the same cool styling and crisp sound. They aren’t the most portable pair of headphones, with a headset that doesn’t fold and a cord that can’t...
