    Worst Headphones I've Ever Owned

    These are the most expensive yet the worst quality headphones I've ever owned. The looked so good and they're expensive, I just assumed they would be at least as good or better than my cheap bose. That's not the case. I keep them on my desk and never traveled with them yet they started falling apart within the first 6 months. I took them to the apple store and they told me it would cost around 200 to repair them. I opted to use tape and super glue. This was fine for another nine months, then the left ear started cutting out. I assumed this was the headphone cord so after having to look for a cord that would fit in the headphone jack (no any cord will work because the jack is sunk 4-6mm into the headphones) I found out that it's not the cord the headphones are just bad quality and not working enough to even use corded. I forgot to mention that the Bluetooth rarely ever worked from the time I got them. Good luck!

    Great Birthday gift!

    I got these as a birthday gift to myself, and as I had a voucher to use, and can say that after first impressions I am very impressed.

    There are easy to pair with my devices, and while they don't completely sound out the noise on the tube, it is fine for what I need them for and means I can listen to my music/pod casts on a pact tube without having to turn up loud!

    They also look great, and never had any issue reporting issues to Apple in past with over products, so feel that if anything did happen I would not have any hassle getting it resolved.

    They look pretty cool, got to admit, but their sound is extremely limited to some low-end EQ automatically preset on them. They are designed to listen to hip-hop. If you want to be a cool kid and become trendy and popular (and waste a lot of money), get these. If you want good headphones, get a pair of Audio-Technicas for half the price and double the quality. They are comfy though.

    They will break on you. Not worth it. Go with Bose!

    I got these headphones less than a year ago and I agree with most of the reviews, they are awesome, BUT after wearing them and charging them for a few months, they stopped charging. It is not a problem with the chord, but the headphones themselves seem to stop charging. It first started with having to place the headphones in a very very specific charging position, but after a month or two this wouldn't even do the trick anymore. So they worked for a few months, but I will now have to buy a new pair, and if they worked I would buy them again, but I don't want to shell out $350 every year for headphones. At that price point, they shouldn't die within the first year of purchase. I'm switching to Bose.

    Purchased these yesterday, returned them today.

    Never owned a pair of expensive headphones,to be honest I'm not a fan of them usually as my ears get too hot and I much prefer just using speakers. However I am soon to be working in an office environment where I will be required to use the things.

    I was relatively happy with the quality of the product, they looked nice, I'm not a massive audiophile so sound quality I felt was good, but no better then £60 pairs I've had, at least not to my primitive ears. One major disappointing thing is that these don't even have the correct cable for a Mac book pro , c'mon apple sort that out.....

    Now onto the reason I returned these after 1 day. (I should say I could only use the headphones for about 10 - 20 minutes). I opened the box, turned them on, paired them etc. As soon as I placed these things on my ears I could feel an odd , umcomfortable strange hard to describe. feeling. The earphones where emitting some sort of vibration noise (no music on at this point). I've no idea what this was I assumed it was maybe the noise cancellation , I turned that off via my IMAC but still it was there and it was starting to give me a headache/make me feel really uncomfortable.

    I tried turning some music on , this made them a little better (oddly) but still this was such an uncomfortable experience I just had to take the things off after maybe 10 mins or so.

    No way was I going to keep these at £300 , (more often then not I can put up with things) and when they are causing me pain/discomfort they just had to go.

    Won't ever buy the beats brand again, I'll stick to cheap headphones or just sit in silence , beats discomfort (no pun intended)

    ANC needs work

    I spent almost an hour comparing Studio3 to Bose QC35 II inside an Apple Store. I chose Beats for the seamless Bluetooth transfers to Apple products. ANC is not perfect and needs some work, especially for use on aircraft:
    - Embraer 175 seated behind wings, ANC worked
    - Boeing 737-700 seated behind wings, ANC worked
    - Bombardier CRJ700 - seated in last row, under engines, ANC failed. The ANC seemed to cycle from working about 40 sec to enhancing engine noise, especially in the left speaker, for 20 sec.
    Air nozzles also mess with the ANC, similar to wind complaints in other reviews. For the price, I wish the ANC performed better!

    Amazing Product

    I've had Beats for about 2 years and they are the best thing that has ever happened to me. They're about 3894573 times better than my kids, whom I love dearly. And they connect super fast, and they're still amazing. To this day i haven't found a better headphone. i would sooo recommend

    The bass that this produces is crisp, clear, and tight. The treble is extremely clear.

    I have had these headphones for about a year now. I take very good care of them but now they won’t even turn on. I have tried resetting them and still nothing. Don’t buy a product that will be useless in a year. You have been warned!!!!

    Better then Studio 2

    Had my beats studio 2s long enough for the warranty to run out, then the charge port broke. Bought the Studio 3 and love the sound on them, though it sounds like there is less bass then the 2's. Noice cancelation is definitely better. I think its sad that apple hasn't upgraded to USB C or Lightning ports on these for charging or wireless charging. I do love that these are much easier to switch across all my apple products, no turning off and on just selecting them from the device I want to use them with the hand off is great.

    Not the same as Previous model

    I owned a pair of the Studio Wireless Beats prior to this pair which was a Christmas gift. The sound on the previous model was more crisp with more bass and overall better sound quality. The new Studio 3 has a muffled sound and less bass output. Totally disappointed but I appreciate the gift. The only problem was that my older pair was that I couldn’t find any replaceable earmuffs.

    Why no wall adapter?!?!

    The new solo 3 has great sound and the padding on the ears is better than the previous models. It connects so much easier to your phone and Apple Watch than the previous models as well. Only issue... 375$ and it doesn’t come with a USB adapter to plug into an outlet to charge them, like WTF Apple the consumer is paying for the adapter anyways so just put it in the dang box.

    Terrible sound (distorts the music) and incredibly uncomfortable to wear

    The only reason people keep buying these is because they look cool and come in lots of pretty colors. But honestly the headphones that come with the iPhone sound way better, yo.

    Good, but...

    For $350 they should be good. I use them daily at Planet Fitness and charge them about once a month. Two issue however: 1) When I charge them all of the lights never go steady. The last one is always blinking. There's no help about this on the DRE site and the instructions that come with the earphones are minimalist in the extreme. 2) Although I have a MacBook Pro, the Beats "Updater" will not download. All I get is "Decompression Failed." Again, no help in the support section of DRE or Apple.

    Greatw Headphones!

    These headphones sound amazing and crispy with good bass. Very isolating with the noise cancelation. Definitely a great buy, would recommend in a heartbeat, 10/10.

    Impressed With Sound but...

    I am a fan of beats in general, both the headphones and earbuds. Excellent bass and overall sound quality. BEWARE IF YOU HAVE LONG HAIR THOUGH. My hair gets caught in it all the time and makes me look silly as im trying to untangle it from my head.
