They definitely work with Android devices. The only thing you would be missing out on, if you were an Android owner, would be the W1 chip inside these Beats Studio 3's. And, to be honest, I would consider the W1 chip to be much more of a "convenience" factor than an "essential" factor, as all the W1 chip really does is pair more quickly to your iPhone (to put it in the least amount of words).
Hope this helps!

A:AnswerThe studio 3 has a bigger ear fit. The solo 3 in my opinion are uncomfortable to wear for a long time. they go on your ear while the studios go around your ear. They're much more comfortable and have a better bass.
A:AnswerAfter more than three years, Beats is finally updating its top-tier Studio headphones. The new Studio 3 Wireless headphones, available beginning today from Apple and other retailers, cost $349.95 and improve on the previous model by adding Apple’s W1 chip, more advanced noise cancellation, redesigned internals, and longer battery life.
They still very much look like Beats and, at least in terms of apperance, aren’t much changed from the company’s other current products or the Studio Wireless headphones they replace. The Studio 3 Wireless are basically a larger, over-ear version of the Solo 3 Wireless. Beats will offer them in a range of six colors, and my favorite of them — gray with gold accents — is among two “limited edition” designs. Beats says the ear cushions have been improved so as to be more comfortable for all-day wear.
Inside is where all the major upgrades are. The Studio 3 Wireless include Apple’s W1 technology to make pairing with nearby iPhones, iPads, and Macs effortless and immediate. When connected to a W1-supported Apple product, the headphones should reach wireless battery life of 22 hours with noise cancellation on — or up to 40 hours in audio-only “low power” mode. Beats says that audio quality doesn’t change or degrade with noise cancelling disabled. (You double tap the power button to toggle noise-canceling on and off.) That 22-hour figure is slightly better than Bose’s QC35 and Sony’s MDR-1000X headphones. The Studio 3 Wireless headphones also feature Class 1 Bluetooth for more reliable and longer-range connectivity. And when the battery runs low, the company claims you can get 3 more hours of listening time from a 10-minute charge.
Beats, Bose and Sony headphones are all great headphones and are all meant for different purposes in many different categories. Your choice should be dependant on what you are looking for within these factors:
Now, I don't know what you are looking for in your dream headphones, but I can tell you a brief summary for Beats, Bose and Sony's top headsets in terms of these factors, so that you can choose for yourself!
Beats Studio 3 Wireless:
Price - $349 (premium price)
Style - One of the most stylish headphones, providing multiple colorways so you can choose what fits your mood. You will have a hard time finding someone who would critique Beats for not looking good.
Comfort - As long as you evenly distribute the headphone's weight, (half) on the crown of your head and (half) on the circumference of your ears, one can easily wear this for a few hours without any physical pain. (Keep in mind that your ears will start getting sweaty after the first 30 minutes. I don't feel any discomfort through this, however, other people may disagree)
Convenience - Aside from BlueTooth, the Beats Studio 3's have something called the "W1 chip" that Bose and Sony do not have. (keep in mind that the W1 chip's perks can only work on Apple products ONLY) The W1 chip basically connects very quickly to your device and can easily have it's BlueTooth switch from one Apple product to another with a tap of a button. Another major factor to the W1 chip is that there is no audio latency; the W1 chip eliminates audio lag when watching movies through BlueTooth.
Sound - The Beats Studio 3's have a bass-boosted signature. This basically means that genres like rap and hip-hop (anything with a 'punch' in the music) will shine, while delicate genres like instrumental and classical will seem a bit too cluttery due to the bass emphasis.
Bose QC 35 II:
Price - $349 (premium price)
Style - Has more of a low-key, mature look towards its style. Sadly, there is little-to-no color choice, as they only come in black and silver.
Comfort - No matter how you wear these headphones, you will be able to listen to the Bose QC 35's for an unlimited amount of time, as you will find no discomfort with them. Your ears may heat up a bit (maybe becoming a bit moist), but not to the extent that the Beats Studio 3's do.
Convenience - Aside from BlueTooth, the only other thing the Bose QC 35's can do extra is bring up your voice activator (Siri, Cortana, google, etc.) by pressing a designated button on the right earcup.
Sound - The Bose QC 35 II's have a vocals-boosted signature. This basically means that genres like opera and classical (anything with a calm feel or a singer's vocal presence to the music) will shine, while more intense genres like rap, hip-hop, and dubstep will seem a bit underwhelming due to the bass deficit.
Sony WH-1000x M2:
Price - $349 (premium price)
Style - Similar to the Bose QC 35's, the Sony 1000x's have a subtle and reserved look to their style. Again, there are only two colorways they allow you to choose from: black and beige-grey.
Comfort - The Sony 1000x is the heaviest of the three headsets. The clamping force is very minimal, but no matter how you position the headphones on the crown of your head, after an hour of use, you may feel like repositioning the Sony 1000x's as it can easily cause a bit of physical discomfort.
Convenience - Aside from BlueTooth, the Sony WH-1000x M2's has a touch-controlled user interface that is very fun to mess around with (whereas both the Bose and the Beats have buttons). The Sony 1000x's also come with a feature that allows you to listen to your music while listening to your environment at the same time. The Sony WH-1000x M2's can do multiple other nifty functions; I am just acknowledging the deal-breaking functions only to cut my rambling short.
Sound - The Sony WH-1000x M2's have a slightly, vocals-boosted signature. With that being said, this is the closest sound signature from the three headsets that are more balanced throughout their frequencies (meaning that the bass mids and treble with not seem to want to dominate each other). Because of this, you can listen to anything you want and never be disappointed with the results. With that being said, there's not a genre that really would shine with these, as they are quite neutral-sounding throughout the genre board. Some think of this as a plus while others prefer to have a different sound signature with more color in certain areas. In the end, it is all up to you; sound is subjective, with each human being preferring one frequency range over the other. My best advice is to just check these three headphones out at your local Best Buy store and have a listen yourself.
I hope this helped you make your purchasing decision :) One thing I will tell you, is that you cannot go wrong with any of these, so don't be worried about choosing the "wrong one".
