The Beats EP look like a cross between the Beats Solo3 Wireless and the Beats Mixr. They have a compact and sleek form factor that works for most and come in many color schemes to suit your taste and style. The relatively unique headband design makes them stand out a bit more, especially in other color schemes, as the metal of the hinge contrasts well with the color of the ear cups. However, the all-black variant is a bit more understated, subtle, and has a high-end appeal, which some may prefer.
The Beats EP, like most on-ears, are a bit more breathable than over-ear designs but can still make your ears sweat during intense physical exercise. They mostly make the notch of your ears warmer but don’t touch your outer ear, which stays relatively cool.
The Beat EP have excellent imaging. The weighted group delay is only 0.2, which is excellent. The entire group delay is below our audibility threshold. This ensures a tight bass and a transparent treble reproduction. Also, the L/R drivers of exceptionally well-matched. This results in the accurate placement and localization of objects (voices, footsteps, instruments) in the stereo field.
Beats EP is tough, lightweight and comfortable. Its durable frame is reinforced with stainless steel and adjustable vertical sliders allow for personalized comfort. Designed for everyday use.
The Beats EP’s microphone has a good recording quality. The LFE of 270Hz indicates a recorded/transmitted speech that is slightly thin. However, this won’t have a significant effect on the comprehensibility of the speech. Also, the HFE (high-frequency extension) of 20kHz and the relatively flat response between LFE and HFE mean that speech sounds relatively present and natural.
Beats EP is made to go everywhere you do. Its battery-free design offers unlimited playback and hassle-free fixed cable lets you focus on the music. Just grab and go.
