Beats by Dre vs. Fanny Wang Headphones

Updated on May 8, 2012

Which Over Ear Headphone is better: Monster Beats by Dr. Dre or Fanny Wang?

Headphones provide more than just a means to listen to music, they are an extension of your personality. Because of this headphone choice is largely dependent upon the style of music you listen to, comfort, your budget, and fashion sense. Both the Beats by Dr. Dre and Fanny Wang headphones provide excellent sound quality and comfort.

Though each company offers different headphone designs, let's take a closer look at the strengths of headphone company's top-of-the-line products: The Fanny Wang 3003 and the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones.

The Beats by Dr. Dre line of headphone from the Monster company (famous for its quality cables) is probably the most popular high end consumer headphone on the market at the moment. Designed in cooperation with Dr. Dre, the Beats bring a new standard of audio quality to listeners with full pumping bass and eye catching design.

Beats Studio Strengths:

  • Powered Isolation - Provides generally effective isolation from outside noise.
  • Monster Cable - As you would expect from Monster, the headphone cable is top-notch.
  • iSoniTalk Cable - Allows you to answer phone calls with the cables built-in microphone.
  • Reputation - Owning beats is seen as a status symbol showing you care about the quality of music you listen to, are stylish, and can afford to pay for it.

The Fanny Wang 3003 model headphone is Fanny Wang Headphone Co.'s most luxurious headphone currently on offer.

Fanny Wang is a relatively new headphone company, but their designs successfully merge superb audio with comfort and fashion. The sonics of their headphones are pristine with smooth, crisp highs and powerful low-end without being overbearing one way or the other. They are comfortable to wear for hours and look as great as they sound.

What the Fanny Wangs have that the Beats don't:

  • Noise Canceling Technology - Microphones inside the headphone measure outside noise and effectively cancel up to 95% of ambient noise. Awesome! (I find that any closed back over ear headphone naturally isolates your ears from some background noise, but this takes it to another level.
  • Bass Boost Switch - A selectable bass boost switch allowing you to listen to music not suitable for massive bass (whereas the Beats have a great bass response, but unfortunately cannot be switched off).
  • The Duo Jack - A built-in headphone splitter allowing a friend to plug their headphones directly into yours for easy combination listening with no loss in quality.
  • Their looks - You can completely customize the color of each part of the headphone (unlike Beats who produce different color variations but don't allow complete customization).
  • Adapters - Including aircraft adapters. I can't tell you how many times I've been stuck using the airplanes 2 pronged headphone jack because I wasn't prepared.
  • Apple Remote and Mic - Provides the ability to control your Apple device and answer phone calls.
