    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.

    DONT BUY!

    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.

    DO NOT BUY

    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.

    Great!

    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.

    Excellent for Travel and Work

    I use my Matte Black Beats Studio Wireless all the time at work to help me focus when I'm getting into some detail level work that require my complete focus. Sometimes I turn them on without music just to cut out some of the ambient noise through noise cancelling. Because of their compact nature with the fold up option they are great for travel and help to make flying less abrasive. Sound is good and I like that they hit low but stay clean throughout the audio band - makes for an enjoyable listening experience.

    Great sound. LOUSY construction

    Love the sound! Four Stars....

    Astounded by the cheap flimsy foam and faux leather covers that started separating months after I bought them. Two stars if not one!

    I wouldn't be all that upset if these took a pounding, I lived an active lifestyle or was rough with them however, none of those apply. These are, for the most part, indoor headphones used for listening to music at my desk or perhaps with my phone but only indoors etc.,

    When unused, they sit folded behind the computer and I treat them with the utmost care. This doesn't/didn't matter!

    I don't know what type of glue they sourced from "People's Factory AZ-908-HG" on the planet Romulak but it's absolute garbage. They look terrible now and while still functional, resemble hobo-headphones. I suppose the distressed look will decrease the chance of them being stolen should I ever take them outside.

    That being said, I fear a gentle wind or direct sunlight may cause them to disintegrate. ;)

    BAD!

    These headphones are just bad and for one big reason sound quality. The quality is simply just not there as the company put all their weight on amplifying the bass, which doesn't make headphones sound better by the way. What is even more frustrating is that you can't listen or watch anything on youtube with these headphones, if you try they will disconnect forcing you to turn off then back on your headphones or worse leave you know choice but to reset your phone. They are just very bad is the point and being the loyal Apple consumer that I have been my whole life am very disappointed that they would sell such bad headphones. I say this not just because of the headphones but also because of other bad and overpriced products Apple has released but maybe its time to switch to PCs and Androids as many of my coleagues have began to do so. Just not the same without Steve Jobs. :(

    Disposable headphone

    Good while it lasts. A small piece of the band (plastic) broke during normal use within 3 months. I went to Apple and they wanted to charge me $199 because apparently they cannot fix it (they would have to replace the headphone altogether). Not worth it!

    Average Headphones, terrible build quality

    Bought August '15. Returned under warranty Feb '16 as paint was peeling off and leather ear cups were flaking apart.. Customer service was great and sent another pair within 2 days of returning.

    However, second pair, the paint has again flaked off the chrome surround and now the leather cup has detached. SO FAR, customer service not willing to help or offer refund or different model. Asked to pay £160 (approx) for cosmetic repair as cost stud faults are not covered under warranty although I cannot find anything in the terms to clarify that.

    Stuck with pair of £320 headphones that no longer work and I've seriously looked after them too.

    Complete Apple addict but this has genuinely disappointed me. Nothing like Apples own products. Cheap and over rated. Complete waste of money IMO.

    Samsung in Apple clothing...

    Great quality, comfortable, recommended

    I work in a large open office space and these headphones have been remarkable. They block out sound very effectively and the audio quality of the headphones themselves is superb. The headphones are comfortable to wear, easy to adjust for comfort, easy to carry in my backpack (they fold up into a fairly sturdy carrying case included), and look great. The only complaint I would have is around the life of the battery, it doesn't last too long. But that's expected when you're running these wirelessly every day. :)
