    Bad quality but good sound

    The housing is cheap plastic that broke with very minimal effort within a few months of receiving it. I sent it back under warranty but all they did was poorly fix the break, still won't fold properly and the mail lost my package for 4 months so by the time I got it back the warranty was over. The ear cushioning doesn't provide enough support and it squashes my ears, starts to hurt after wearing for too long. The cushioning is also coming apart at the seams and I have to use glue to keep it together. Other than that the sound quality is excellent but that's the only good thing. Not worth $400 personally and I'd ask for my money back if I could. I feel most of that price is solely for the brand name.

    Noise canceling

    The overall quality of the sound is great. The only problem, noise canceling. I got these as a Christmas gift and the noise canceling worked for about 2 days. After that, I could hear almost everything else around me when I had them on. I only used them as a leisure activity when I was about to go to sleep or when I was just laying around. I used them at about 1/2 volume or a little more than that. Very disappointing. But they still work if you like to hear everyother noise when you're trying to listen to music.

    Deep, detailed music

    Every day I listen to my music with The Headphones, I discover layers of it that I'd never noticed before. Is just another depth. They are just great.

    Poor Durability

    Bought these a couple of years ago and while they sound decent the headphone cushions began to fail within a year and while they were replaced free of charge, within the next year the lower headband fully snapped on the left side with the right hand heading the same way. Bluetooth connection works but will drop out occasionally, poor compared to alternatives of similar price range.

    Better than my solo 3's :)

    I have been buying beats ever since they came out. I've had the original solo, which were okay. The solo 2 were amazing! I got the studio wireless a few months ago, and I couldn't be happier. Very, very loud, excellent quality. The bluetooth can reach pretty far actually! I got the white, only complaint would be that under high light, you can see micro scratches. :( What I love about these that the Solos don't have, is the "over-ear" feature, it makes it more comfortable!!! Makes a big difference! I charge mine once a week, using them about 2 hours a day, battery is okay, sucks that you have to use battery even when using the aux chord though! Awesome overall though!!

    Won't charge or turn on. Save your money!! (for now)

    I have read online and many, many people are faced with the same problem. Battery ran out and won't charge, indicator lights will flash but will not charge/turn on for more than 30 secs. All of the resets do not work (power + mute for 10 secs, 2 mins). I've tried every possible reset variation multiple times and all negative results. I've used only the beats charger with a 5v charger and kept great care of the product. This is not a problem with the charging port, but rather a problem internally. Paid $380 and these die out mid-way through my 16 hour flight at the beginning of my long-awaited vacation. Thanks a lot Apple.

    They NEED to update beats studio over-ear wireless. I don't care if it doesn't have an extended battery life, whatever it has now is totally fine. It should be updated to have a lightning connector, possible W1 chip, and fix this stupid internal issue of not turning on. This should be an easy problem to fix. Not waisting my money on these because they will break down internally for no reason at all.

    Beats worked fantastically until I drained the battery for the first time. Then there was no going back. So keep 'em charged!

    Best headphones ever!!!

    First I would like to say I've been listining to DRE since the 90's. After saying that, I head a chance to get these beats by the one and only Dr.DRE. I got the beats studio edition matte black wireless headphones. They are the best headphones I have ever owned. And I have owned my share of headphones. By far the best, by a long shot. Spectacular sound, noise reduction, and just superb style. Complements left and right all day long non stop. Just the real deal Holyfield. Just saying. BEATS BY DRE!!!!!!

    Pretty Good

    I got these headphones for my birthday for a discounted price and I've gotta say, they are pretty nice. I'm into really dark colors, so these matte black ones look amazing to me. Overall the build of these headphones are nice. The part under the band that sits on your head is comfortable and isn't that annoying. My only warning is that you shouldn't really be listening to music via Bluetooth at the max or second-to-max volume level because that's when you can hear loud thuds from the headphones, especially if you listen to bass-heavy music like me. Overall, these are a great pair of headphones but they are a bit pricey.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
