Expert review

The Beats EP are wired on-ear headphones. Their lack of wireless connectivity makes them more affordable and a popular entry-level model for the Beats headphone range. But is the sound quality good enough, or would you be better off with another model? We sent them to the Which? lab to find out. Read on for our full review of these wired headphones.

What's included:
  • Pros and cons
  • What are they?
  • How do they sound?
  • What are they like to live with?
  • Is there anything I should watch out for?
  • Is there anything else I should know?
  • Should I buy them?
