    Good sound - horrible noise cancelling

    I've used these for about 2 years now, as I travel a lot for work. Sound quality is very good - not excellent, but very good. Strangely, the lows in Dr. Dre - The Chronic sound shallow and truncated - but I see this with other Beats products as well. Noise cancelling on airplanes is not good at all. It eliminates maybe 25% of background noise on an airplane - and it does nothing to drown out a crying baby.

    Expensive but Poor Quality

    Within 5 months of in-house normal usage (2~3 hours every 1-2 days), the earpad had tearing, also the plastic part of the headband cracked (WTF....) I have another headphone (other brand), has been used around 7 years, which has no problem like this.

    Don't much like it

    I hate it because it got stolen a lot of people want these beats I don't like them because they are to big for me and I guess that is my opinion and people say they are to die for if your a fan of having a nice beat then I say this is for you and you are mostly in a office and to ignore all what's around even better but I want to tell you more things about these things but come on I'm not rich so the price on it I will say they should cost the same as the solos but I guess bigger cost more and I get that don't get me wrong but come on I'm not made of money I wish I could only offered this one the studios hopefully they send me some so I could review some more but I doubt to much well my first review is done don't spen your money if you aren't going to use them

    Awesome!

    I've tried on both the Solos and Stereo and both sound amazing but I went with the Stereo And here's why. I like the Adaptive Noise Canceling (ANC) feature, I don't mind the humming that gives it off. I take public transportation so when I'm listen to my music, I'm in my own little world, I don't have to worry about hearing other people or anything for the matter and secondly, the comfort. I wear glasses so with the Solos, they rest on the ears so after a while, I feel pressure on my ears because it's pressing against the temple my glasses but with the Stereos, they go over my ears perfectly without the pressure. The ONLY downside of the stereos is that the battery life is short. The amount of time I use the headphones, I'll get about 2-3 days of use before they die on me. You can use the 3.5mm cord that comes with them and connect it to your phone for more battery life but who wants "strings"? Hope in the future Apple can fix that problem or have a feature that you can turn off the ANC to preserve battery life if they come out with a newer model of the Stereos.

    Beats wireless ear cushion falling apart

    I got the headphones for a Christmas gift. They sound good but they are falling apart at the glued seams of the ear cushions. For 400.00 you should get better quality than this. Poor quality product.

    Waste of a gift and time

    I got some urbeats for a gift. I would put them in the little poach it came with and toke care of them so they wouldn't get messed up because how expensive they are had gread sound and I really loved them. However, just today my headphones went out and for me taking care of them and not using them as often they still went out. You know the more money you spend the better the quality is but that's a lie because beats headphones just go out like the $5 headphones at any store. Beats suck no matter how much you take care of them. Thanks to beats I will never buy or receive a gift from anyone if they are beats.

    EXCELLENT HEADPHONES

    Headband broke

    I have a wired Bose noise cancellation headphone for many many years and it still works fine. About one year ago I decided to upgrade to wireless and I'd like to try a different brand. So bought this beats studio wireless. The headband broke yesterday. It lasted only less than two years. I am an engineer myself and I don't know what the mechanical engineers at Beats were thinking when they design this thing. The headband sustains constant stress when the phone is put on your head, it is part of the mechanism that keep the presure to make sure the ear pieces cover your ears tightly all the time. Bose makes this headbond out of steel. And Beats built it with plastic. Ironically, Beats is not really cheap. I am not sure I will buy another Beats in the future.....

    Not-So Noise Cancelling

    I had bought a pair of the Over-Ear Studio Wireless last year around this time and exchanged them within a month thinking there was something wrong with the noise cancellation piece. I got a new pair within a month only to realize that it was not the noise cancellation piece, but the headphones themselves. It doesn’t restrict outside noise as much as you’d like in comparison to Bose. If you are looking for straight up noise cancellation, then spend the extra cash and go with Bose.

    Meh.

    They are dialed in to impress on the apple showroom floor but do little everywhere else. Used them on an airplane and they seemed to amplify the noise let alone remove it. My ears were so tired at the end of the trip. Battery life seems great. Controls could be better. Produces a loud click inside the headset.

    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.
