What's the deal with Dr Dre headphones?

People rave about Dr Dre headphones, but surely they need a decent source? If I'm playing a ripped CD on my cheapo Argos MP3 player, would these fancy headphones make much difference? Or do CD's ripped to MP3 retain all the information on the CD?

Also, if I'm playing a CD on an Alba CD player (for argument's sake, I don't actually have an Alba), would these headphones make the music just as clear as if I were using them on a high-end stereo system?

Which ones? I tried the Monster Studio & the Solo ones and wasn't impressed at all, sounds way too bass-ey, mids & hi's sound unimpressive and they leak pretty bad too. Your better off with a good pair of Bose.

& of course better the source better the output.

I have the Solo ones (won in a competition-not paid for!) They weren't anything special at first but the more you use them they 'condition' themselves...i'm not sure of the technical details but in some way they 'wear in'.

As to the OP, yes, obviously it depends on the source of the music, but you should still experience an improved quality of listening.

It depends on your CD RIP settings, if you're using media player make sure its ripping MP3's not WMAs (and you'll get the best quality at 320kbps bit rate)

But i have FLAC files (lossless audio files) on my computer which sound stunning through the Dre headphones :)

The MP3 player in itself doesnt really make a difference, if it can play a high quality file then the headphones/speakers that you have attached is what decides how good your music SOUNDS.

I've tried all of them PC World near work have them on show and you can plug in your mp3 player they sound good for hip hop and rnb music, but there are far better headphones out there for the money, remember with these your paying for the brand!

@superdan, the mp3 player does make a difference, all players use different chips, Cowon players are very good such as the S9 if you want excellent sounding players to go with headphones hifiman players are some of the best around.
