    Terrible Noise Cancelling

    Bought these specifically for noise cancelling..more like lack there of.. contacted their customer support about this issue and they said that this issue was not an issue at all, just normal sound quality... Sound quality is good, but would be fantastic if the noise cancelling actually worked.

    Great sound and everything works without a glitch

    I have this Studio Wireless in matte black and love it. The sound quality is great. I have not listen to other over-ear headphones but I do have a Klipsch earphone and Bose MiniLink speaker. Also, the build quality is beautiful and things just work. There is no problem with bluetooth connection. My only minor issue is that my ear does get fatigue and sweat after more than an hour of listening. I am not sure if there's anything that can be done and it might just be expected with other brands of over-ear headphones as well.

    A lot of money for a heater with ragged clothes

    I bought my Beats headphone a little more than a year ago. It is not a cheap headphone. Some friends told me not to buy Beats, but I insisted. Beats belonged to Apple and I've grown used to Apple's products and quality. The result was very bad, I paid for it and I regret it deeply. First, the headphone was always too hot. You couldn't keep it on your ears for more than fifteen minutes without moving it or stop using. Second, the thin leather that covers the cushion of the headphone started to peel off. It really shows how bad is its finishing. There's nothing I enjoy more than high quality. Beats doesn't offer it. This headphone was scarcely used. I used it to watch tv when my wife was sleeping. I have half a dozen other good headphones to use. There's nothing that justifies what happened to me. I can't even sell it, because the guarantee just expired and I would be selling a worn off product. Anyway I am certain it is the last Beats that I will ever pay for. Never again!

    Save your $$

    Currently on my 4th warranty replacement pair in 13 months. 4th pair died & now my responsibility. I literally use these headphones for ONE hour per day when working out, safe to assume they aren't water proof. I've encountered the same issues, each time, volume control doesn't respond, power won't turn on/off, lastly won't charge. 4 pairs in than 13 months. Stay clear! Thanks Apple!

    For what its worth, its not worth it

    Average to good, but not excellent, at best sound quality, did not really stand out more than other audio devices. Had multiple repairs needed.

    Beats wireless headphones

    Boy did Dr. Dre get over on Apple on this one. I thought people at Apple were a lot smarter. These headphones are worthless.. I am on my third set and was told by people at apple they would no longer replace them. The head phones will work fine for about three to six months then just will no longer power on, or the volume button just stops working. Do not waste your 200.00 on these earbuds there are cheaper better earbuds out there. In the meantime Dr. Dre is laughing at the suckers at Apple.

    Useless Beats Headphones

    I have now had five pair of Beats headphones within the past two years. Each pair lasts approximately 1-4 months before becoming useless as a result of not holding a charge. I have taken them back to Apple repeatedly, and while they do replace the useless set, each subsequent set has failed as well. So, I will not be purchasing this product any longer and suggest that you do not waste your money and time replacing this product. I suggest that Apple look into better construction of their product.

    After a year they still look and sound great

    I've had these for almost a year (11 months) and they still look brand new. No issues connecting or with the ear cushions. I'm not sure what all the poor durability reviews are about, but I take very good care of my stuff and I've never had a problem.

    Now, are these worth $380 still? No. I'd say more like $250, here is why:

    1 - They were not refreshed with the W1 chip
    2 - The noise cancellation is Adaptive Noise Cancellation when listening to music. The short explanation is it plays low frequency white-noise in the background to drown out sounds. The headphones will do Active Noise Canceling when NOT listening to music. Active Noise Canceling is when the headphones play the inverse sound-waves of what it hears via the external microphones.
    3 - Bose released the QC35 and Apple updated only the Beats Solo 2 (now 3). This has made this pair obsolete for the price point.

    I'm still giving these 5 stars since I'm reviewing a 1 year old pair of headphones that still look and sound great. However, if I were to be buying a new pair of headphones today, I'd be buying the Beats Solo 3 to go with my iPhone 7.

    Beats wireless

    I had the wireless head phones for 8 months and the volume button snapped off / came unglued so I took them in to get replaced took them 2 weeks to repair or send them back to me then they say they were new ones then about 5 months later the same thing happen. I would stay away from these headphones and try a different brand

    Do not waste your money on low durability product

    In the last year I have purchased two Beats Studio Wireless Over-Ear Headphones. The first pair lasted approximately four months before it fell apart. The headphones would not hold any charge and became useless. The second pair (matte black) are about 5-6 months old. The over-ear parts have unstitched. I expected better durability for the higher end price.

    if I could give zero stars I would! you'd think spending 300-400 dollars on a head phone would be worth it but that's never the case! I've owned four different types of beats (including this one) and they have all broke! I would definitely recommend try Boise or other electronic brand bc they are just robbing you for your money!

    Decent sound parts are cheap

    I have four pairs of headphones in my family and two of them have broken volume controls. By broken I mean the plastic has snapped and the pieces have fallen a part. Because one is a couple months over warranty they want more to fix it ($99) than what a new pair would cost.

    Very disappointing. Always wanted to own a pair of beats headphones so I bought a pair of studios for myself March of 2015. I've used these headphones for a maximum of 1 hour a day, 5 days a week (when I workout) for 1 year and 4 months now. The leather of the right ear cup has fully torn exposing the foam underneath and the drivers crackle and pop whenever you touch the headphone cable, move the jack or bend the headphone band in any way. $400 headphones should hold up better than this. Save yourself the money and buy quality headphones from another manufacturer.

    best I have had

    extremely comfortable and unbelievable sound. yes, they are pricey. but for me they are the best headphones I have had.

    now I did only try making a phone call once and the person on other end couldn't hear me so I had to go to speaker phone. hoping that was only a one time thing. I dont make a lot of calls. but when I do I would prefer they worked better.

    Worth $100 not $480

    Pros: Great sound quality and looks great
    Cons: Uncomfortable: Bose headphones have a soft material under the headband. These have a solid piece of rubber that creates a ton of static and feels horrible. Atrocious noise cancelling: $400 Bose QC25s have better noise cancelling than these things. They barely cancel noise unless the volume is so high it hurts your ears. Overpriced: They probably cost like $20 to make and are sold for $480. They lack basic features such as a SOFTER material that won't hurt my head, better noise cancelling and I would not recommend to anyone unless they want something that looks good but is actually trash. If they didn't look this good I'd give it 1 star.

    Ok... but sold them on eBay

    I've been a long time Bose fan and have the Bose Companion 5 speakers attached here to my iMac and love this system. When Apple bought Beats, we experimented by buying the Studio headsets to see how they were. While the sound was ok, I wasn't impressed with the features and wound up selling them on eBay. If Bose had the QC 35 out at the time, I would have bought those instead. Bose makes a much better product and has a long history of concentrating on sound and quality.... not a rap background. I'm happy I sold them.

    Love my Beats

    I really like these headphones. I've been a pretty loyal Skullcandy user for quite a while, but wanted a nice pair of wireless headphones, which Skullcandy just really doesn't have. I liked the look and features of the matte black Beats Studio Wireless, so I went ahead and bought them. They have been great. Really good battery life, easy to use, great sound quality and very nice for talking on the phone. The only complaint is that the bluetooth will occasionally cut out, but it is pretty infrequent. I wear them at work, around the house, when traveling and everywhere in between.

    I love these Beats Studio wireless headphones! If you are struggling to decide which colour to buy, I strongly recommend the matte black ones as they have a nice finish and don't show the fingerprints. I really like the Bluetooth controls as they are sleek and hidden (on the ear itself) and they make it easy to turn the volume up and down, and to skip a track. The noise cancelling is excellent, maybe not as good as the Bose QC25 ones, but the Beats definitely beat the Bose on looks! 10/10 IMO.
