Bose Q-15 vs. Dr. Dre Monster Beats
I had the opportunity to check both out. In my comparison I found that Monster Beats had more of a punch (louder)however, there was background noise (hissing). When I switched to the Q-15, although they wasn't as loud, the sound was pure, no background noise at all! So, I gave up a a couple of clicks on the volume for clarity and comfort. The Q was lighter in weight and a very comfortable fit compared to the heavier Monster.
