I've trusted head-fi.org's opinion for a while now and they have nothing but terrible things to say about Beats. The sound isn't bad, but for how much they cost (like $300) you can get way, way better. If you are actually interested in buying high-end headphones, don't fall for the mainstream (Bose/Beats) and take a look around for what personally fits you.
Regarding the Beats, I was all ready to scoff at the headphones but I was pretty shocked to see that Headroom gave them a good review, so apparently at least one reasonably reputable site thinks they're good headphones.
edit: to clarify

I've listened to them on numerous occasions and find them massively overpriced. The bass is bloated and undefined, while the mids and highs are extremely muddy. The only redeeming factor I can give them is comfort; I found them much more comfortable than my beloved Grados.
