The Only Noise Canceling Bluetooth Over Ear Headph
Posted by: DrDave from: on
After searching high and low, surprisingly enough this is the only decent quality Bluetooth noise canceling over ear headphones available. (don't know why this is in the On-Ear section in Best Buy because it is definitely over the ear). After some experimenting, I feel very happy with the purchase and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting the above features and can afford the premium price.
Bose has much better noise canceling but is wired, their Bluetooth version does not have noise canceling. Sony has a Bluetooth noise canceling headphone but it is ON EAR. Turtle Beach does have a gaming wireless 7.1 noise canceling headphone (which I purchased then returned because it was uncomfortable and the controls were awful).
These headphones sound great, although I think there is a slight quality loss due to the Bluetooth because the sound is slightly better when you use the included wires. I have it Bluetooth paired with my iPhone, Macbook Pro and Bluetooth TV output. You can only connect to one at a time, but it only takes a few seconds to switch between them.
I have yet to see anything close to the battery life they claim and there is no auto off. But the headphones charge up quickly and will charge from USB battery banks which I always have with me for my phone, so that is not a problem. Another great feature is that it will play wirelessly and charge simultaneously.
Finally the controls are great. Just one big "B" button and vol up down. Since the controls are very similar to the iPhone earbud controls it is easy to remember. Press B to pause/answer phone, press twice to skip to next song press 3 times to skip back etc.
The whole package is beautifully put together, it has the quality and look of an Apple product which probably explains why they purchased the company.
If you are on the fence, jump off and buy it. The only decision you need to agonize about is what color to buy!

The Headphones are AMAZING! Sound Quality is the best! Good Battery Life! I tried on all the other Beats by Dr. Dre headphones before buying these and these are the most comfortable over the ear headphones other than the Beats pro! I listen to music all day sometimes for hours at a time and never feel any discomfort while wearing these. Having the option to use them wireless is definitely a pro!

Not worth the money
Posted by: Tech10002 from: on
I have the old Monster Beats studios and thought these would be an improvement. I got them mainly for the bluetooth. While these are made much better than the old ones and have better sound definition, they have eviscerated the best thing about Beats--the BASS. The bass response in the new ones is terrible. It has none of the power of the old version. I'm not sure if mine are defective or not but mine sound like the voice coil is bottoming out on heavy bass notes in the right earcup. That is inexcusable in a $100 headset, much less a nearly $400 one. I am returning mine today.

Good but not worth the price
Posted by: kevin88 from: on
I recently bought a pair as a price match for $250 for the holidays and found that price to be way too much. If you're a day to day music listener and don't really look for clarity or instrumental/ vocal changes then these headphones are for you. They're extremely comfortable and Beats makes it real easy to rename and update the headphones from they're webpage. The Bluetooth range gets iffy after 20ft or so if you have them sync to your PC and start to walk away expect disconnection or lyric passing. If you're looking for something that can give you a better quality look elsewhere. I play guitar and thus I want to hear a song first and/or alongside my playing have found that these headphones don't give me the acoustic boost that I want. I did like the colors from which to choose from appose to that of Sony or Bose but in the end I think these headphones are more to show off that you have money and hype than what someone working in a studio would use.

I've had a pair of (hardwired) Bose QC 15s for 5 years and thought it was time for a cordless upgrade. So I picked up a pair of Beats Studio Wireless headphones and my review is as follows:
Pros: Cordless or cord is optional
Battery lif-e lasts a solid 8-10 hours. I'll be at I only use them on days that I travel for work so figure two 3 hour flights plus a connection.
Storage- headphones fold up into a nice beats pill style case which attaches to luggage.
Cons: The sound is OK but I am not impressed with it. My 5 year old Bose still sound WAY better. Better clarity, trebble and bass. Which I was surprised by the lack of bass because I figured hey it's Dr. Dre right... Wrong.
Noise canceling is minimal at best. I tested both while mowing my lawn and Bose outperformed my Beats.
Ultimately I decicded to keep them because I got them on sale and I figured they're worth the price I paid, but in retrospect I would never pay full retail price for these.

These are hands down the best headphones I've ever purchased. Quality is great and the noise cancelling is amazing. My only issue is that for some reason when I am playing music wirelessly versus hard wired, it doesn't sound as loud. (It's still loud, but not as loud as I'd like. Some people may not like loud, and this issue could very well be for technical limitations, so please take this with a grain of salt).
Other than that, I love these headphones.

MAN OH MAN!! GET THEM NOW!
Posted by: MuzikJunkie from: Missouri on
First off I've had the 1st gen Studio, 2 gen Studios, and now the Studio wireless. So I kept reading reviews when they first came out and they left me skeptical to buy. I finally was like ok I'm getting them, and MAN I'M GLAD I DID!! I got the white/reds which look and feel exactly like the wired. Funny thing is the wireless sound quality kills the wired. The wired would give me distorted bass sounds, but these wireless sounds like I'm in my car but speakers are right on my ears! They still have the next track, play, pause, volume up/down on the headphones like the Solo, so I was pleased to see that feature on them because a review said they didnt. All in all get them. I'm one to not trust reviews, so anyone out there like me trust this review and try the Beats for yourself. I can't wait to hit the gym tomorrow with no dang wires!! I know someone feels me on that!

Loud and Clear, not without flaws
Posted by: NathanATX from: on
Received a pair for Xmas gift. I was immediately impressed with the power of the sound. Impressive, especially with movies on the iPad. Music sounded altered,
processed almost, but considering I'm listening to MP3 via Apple Music, I don't expect an audiophile experience (turntable on my home stereo for that). After reading countless reviews, these embellished sounds are common with all Beats (even wired) headphones.
After some spotty connectivity issues, I returned the pair to Best Buy. I decided to give the Bose Audiolink II wireless headphones a shot. They were about $90 cheaper, and also had solid reviews on the Best Buy site, as well as YouTube reviews, etc.
I preferred the look of the Bose. Classic. Minimalist. The white pair looked sharp and were easy to pair. For the record, part of me didn't want to be seen in Beats. I'm 37, and have no desire to be a flashy teenager with giant red plastic on my bald head.
One awesome feature for the Bose is the fact that you can pair two devices at the same time. For example, laptop and phone. This is a sweet feature and more
convienant than I could have imagined. Bose also tells you the power level and the connected devices when you turn them on. These features are lacking from the Beats.
HOWEVER, the Bose sounded flat, subdued, and the volume does not turn up loud enough. (I do not need loud, blasting bass, but the Bose wouldn't turn up loud enough, especially for a plane or city street).
I decided to return the Bose and try another pair of the Beats, hoping the Bluetooth would be better on this pair. Fingers crossed.
After turning on the new pair (and after spending eight hours testing the Bose all day), I knew that I had made the right decision. Despite the classic look, ease of use, and great features, I was willing to forgo these things because the Beats sounded much better (and were much more comfortable). After all, $300 headphones should sound great, right? (I did price match at Best Buy and saved quite a bit of money from the list price for the Beats).
I was able to score the grey beats, they are more subtle looking, and hopefully I won't be accused of stealing them from my 13 year-old daughter when I walk down the street.
