    NOT noise cancelling

    I would think 3 times before buying these. They're nice but definitely not noise cancelling. Unless you turn the volumne all the way up. I can still hear the music from the gym playing and my boyfriend's snoring. Would not reccommend buying these.

    Absolutely amazing!

    The studio's are hands down the best headphones in the world. My only thing is that I wish they would allow you to customize the headphones however you'd like. I wouldn't mind paying more money to get a customize colored pair of headphones.

    Poor bluetooth and poor balance

    Apart from the sound, the beats studio wireless headphone is a poor piece of equipment. It is not simple to get a bluetooth connection to different iPhones and iPad or laptop. No good instructions how to solve problems on internet and NO support from Dre/Apple. The second big problem I have is that right and left sound are NOT in balance so always hear music louder on one side. No way you can reset this and repair is as expensive as buying a new one. Now, I will never ever buy again a beats headphone or whatever.

    Owner Both Solo3 & Powerbeats Wireless - neither lasted more than 3 months

    Both pairs began falling apart within 2-3 months max. They fall into disrepair quite rapidly. I spent, idk, approx $500 on these 2 pairs of headphones. Padding on solos was first thing to go, then the rest detiorated quickly. Earphone covers fell off. Plastic housing for electronics unglued. Currently, only L earphone plays sound. Powerbeats Wireless fall out of my ears constantly. Yes, I have big ears, but the way the plastic is molded is the real culprit. I've had these for less than 4 months. The electronic housing fell apart, and things just got worse. Audio in one ear only. Really bummed about these purchases. They kicked butt in the beginning, but their lifespan is unjustifiably short. Bluetooth and hands free phone capabilities were par for the course. I wish I could get new pairs, but I tried to superglue my solos back together (#fail). My Powerbeats can't be fixed. I became addicted to solos while they worked! The sound quality was terrific. Better than Bose's comparable models. Powerbeats were a beta testing project. They need major improvements. Help me Obi Wan Dre-Obi, money is too tight now (bc we had triplets!) so I can't buy another pair. Which I would consider after reviewing all the specs and audio/structural improvements made to them. But for now, I guess I'll just have to get used to listening to the symphonies of my babies crying. :-(. Sorry for the disses Dre and Co. You guys are some of my heroes.

    Working out, travel, painting

    Though i've had an issue with hearing over the phone everything else is amazing. They're my second pair of wireless Beats (1st Space Grey now Beats Solo 3) and i'd never use any other headphones. Super loud and easy to carry.

    They were good- for about 12 months

    I loved these headphones- the sound, the noise cancelling, the design.. I'm just disappointed that the happiness didn't last, guess it just wasn't meant to be. The right cup, where it meets the head band, it's cracking. Other headphones usually put a privet there, suppose specifically for this reason. I don't know how long until it falls completely off but I assume it to be soon- also, the faux leather padding is peeling like an old couch. I even attempted to super glue it back together D: I mean- $400 aud.. expected at least a 4 or 5 years out of them. I'm not mad- just disappointed. I have to save and break the bank all over again for something with the same sound and cancelling but can keep up with me.

    Apple/Beats - Poor Quality Poor Durability

    Bought Beats Studio wireless at BestBuy a year ago...paid ~$400. Sound is great. Travel 4-5 days/week. 6 months after purchase, the leather covering ear piece separated, exposing foam on inside of headphones. 1 month later, the headphone band chipped then broke, and now I have 1" x 1" break exposing inner components of headband. Apple wants $150+ to repair, but I expect that durability will be the same...so no go. I'll wear them until they crumble to pieces - which should not be too long from now based on history...but they still sound great. When I replace, I'm headed back to Bose cause in addition to sound, quality is paramount and at $400...and I do NOT abuse them...they should last longer than a year.

    Charger messed up

    I had my wireless beats for a little over 2 months and the battery suddenly stopped charging last week. I tried resetting them and it still won't charge. For how much they cost, I was expecting them to last more than 2 months and change. All my friends had bad terrible beat experiences. Shoulda listened to them. Smh

    Not worth the money

    I thought these Beats were the greatest thing in the world taking them out of the box. i used them for 10 months doing running, weight lifting etc, but nothing very damaging to the headphones at all. In no time the leather on the earpieces was peeling off. They now look terrible peeling off and the white is brownish. To fix they it would cost me 100$ plus shipping..

    Not too happy!!

    I have had my Studio Beats for about 2.5 months. Everything is fine except the plastic material covering the earphones are coming apart. I use them for travel and the gym. I cant use them now because it will only get worse. I am deployed and now have to wait another four months to send these back because my receipt and packaging are at home. I am very disappointed in the quality to have them come apart after using them for two months. The price is too high for this to be happening. Other than that, I love the way they sound, look and operate...but does me no good when I can not use them...Next time I will read more reviews to make my decision.

    Studio Wireless

    These are the best HeadPhones I've ever used! They work perfect on Blue-Tooth and the battery life lasts a long time. I would suggest getting these because they are 100% worth the money. I think the reason the others are complaining is because they bought theirs from a bad place. Again, Great HeadPhones and I think you should buy them.

    Poor quality, broke 1x/yr

    Be warned, these will cost you more in the long run. I invested in these as a tool for online school. I intentionally spent more than I needed to because I thought the overall value would be higher. At this price, I was expecting them to last 3-4 years with minimal/no quality issues. The first year the ear cups came apart at the seams and had to be sent in for repair, which takes 1-2 weeks turnaround. Being in an accelerated, online school program meant that this was more than just an inconvenience, it would impact my productivity. After communicating this, Apple did the right thing and replaced them that day and I figured all is well that ends well and was prepared to consider this an outlier. I was wrong. Less than 12 months later, the charging port came loose on the brand new pair (apparently a known issue, along with the fall-apart ear cups) and they wouldn't charge. Taking them in again, I was informed that any repair would be for cost ($150 up front regardless of the issue/cost to repair). They went by the original purchase date which meant that I was out of warranty and out of luck. So frustrating.

    Granted, this review is not for the customer service I received (which was above and beyond) but specifically for the headphones. At this point I went with another brand because the way I see it, I'm going to dump $150/yr into headphones on top of the inconvenience. I'm not the customer trying to scam apple for a new pair of headphones every year. I just expect that after paying $400 for headphones, the quality matches the price. Apparently we're all just paying for Apples' acquisition cost of Dr. Dre's brand name. Do yourself a favor and get some headphones that match quality with price.

    Not worth the money

    Let me start by saying these headphones sound great, however I am giving them 2 stars because they are uncomfortable after about 40 minutes and the sound randomly cuts out when connected to bluetooth. My ears always hurt after using these for a longer period of time. I bought these to watch movies on my MacBook but the connection issue was annoying me so much that I am now back to using my apple headphones which sound almost as good as these beats. I have had these for almost a year now and am very disappointed.

    Do not hold up

    First of all sound quality is excellent, but these will not hold up the ear pieces started flaking off after a few months and then the headband broke after barely a year and the price I paid was $379 for the beats studios 2 and I wanted to repair them and I could buy a new pair for what they will repair them! No one wanted to help me find a solution! Very dissatisfied with product and customer service! DO NOT BUY! I have sonys now and the sound quality is great and much cheaper! I thought buying top of the line meant quality but not in this case with product or service just top of the line price!

    not a safe purchase

    Do yourself a favor and find another brand to sink nearly $400 into. I had been a long time beats customer and was very satisfied with them until they switched to apple. I have purchased the tour 1’s, the tour 2’s, the studio 1’s, the studio 2 wireless, and the portable beat box (roughly $1,500. worth of products)

    I received a replacement pair of studio wireless’s after my original pair cracked above the ear cuff (a very common for those of you who don’t know, and not the result of abuse) and the replacement pair did the exact same thing. I tried to get another replacement, for what is obviously a reoccurring problem and found out that the warranty doesn’t cover replacement headphones! The crack was on a single panel of plastic that would literally take all of 10 minutes to replace and I was quoted $200 for the repair, not including shipping. $200 for a mere piece of plastic? For an issue that is not my fault? I think not. Beats has lost a loyal customer due to their subpar customer service.

    And by the way, the sound quality is good; but for $400 dollars you can find much better.

    Spend $1,500 at a company and they thank you by trying to squeeze another $200 out of you. Bose here I come.

    Sounds good with Macbook, not so well with Samsung S6

    The main problem with these headphones is they don't have a standalone volume control, so if you have source audio that is maxed out at some level, it plays on these headphones as a fairly midling level volume. if not for this I might give this a solid 3.5.

    My specific use case is attempting to watching Netflix on a Samsung Galaxy S6 with BeatsStudio Wireless headphones -- the audio is just below the comfortable hearing level, even if I jack up the volume to the max.

    Sound quality with a Macbook pro is good, as is audio volume level. However, for the $380 price tag, I expect stellar compatibility with any phone that supports bluetooth. On a side note, at the moment of this writing, the "Contact Apple Support" website section on Beats is completely empty and sends you back to the same page over and over, except for the "Feature Questions" area, which sends you to a support person who, unfortunately, can't do anything about this issue since it's not really a hardware problem, it's a software defect.

    Love these headphones but...

    These headphones are awesome, great to workout in! But, there's a common issue with them, the left side becomes low and statically. (troll the internet and you'll find it's a common issue, which should make it recall instead of a warranty issue) apple is refusing to fix it for free unless it's under warranty! Also I, wish that the headphones work without power and just the cord. So beware of these issues. I still love them!
