    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. :)

    DURRABILTY PROBLEM NEEDS TO BE FIXED APPLE!!!

    I had purchased a pair of black ones in the beginning of 2015 to use at the gym to work out. I was impressed on how stylish it look on top of that the sound quality was great. I paticulary got these because I was tired of the chord getting tangled up on the weights and so forth.

    Well about a month into using them, nearly 5 times a week and about 2-4 hours at a time, a small crack on the side popes up. I had never dropped them nor hit a weight with them. The crack started to grow and grow.. kinda dissapointed me knowing I had paid $400 for a pair of head phones trusting apple that for paying THAT much the DURRABILTY would be a little bit better than that.

    So then after another couple months pass I noticed that the ear muff's material was coming undone. Exposing the foam. By now I was very upset. I couldn't believe I paid $400 freakin dollars for a pair of headphones that are falling apart right in front of me within 4 months I've had them. I continued to use them for another 6 months or so and both of the ear muff's material have come undone and the crack has grown all the way across the aide of the headphones exposing the wiring. They sit on my self now haven't used them in over 4 months..

    APPLE PLEASE FIX THE DURRABILTY OF YOUR PRODUCTS. THEY ARE POORLY MADE. LISTEN TO ALL THESE REVIEWS YOUR CUSTORMERS ARE GIVING YOU.

    From someone who has had expensive headphones from different brands...

    So i've had wired expensive headphones from all sorts of brands and I bought these purely because I wanted a wireless headphone and would sacrifice sound quality to get it. WOW, I am totally surprised how good these headphones sound. I listen to a mix of Latin, R&B, Hip Hop, Rock, Classical and it all sounded pretty good. Only maybe the classical and jazz could I say that I could tell a difference in quality(and not by that much).

    The Noise Cancelling is very good.

    They are very comfortable, light, and fit well and i have a big head so that was a relief.

    Battery life they easily last 10 hours.

    Look, are they expensive? yes... Here's the thing, aside from these Beats and the Sennheiser Momentum's (which was my first choice but too expensive), the rest of the headphones out there look terrible. These are definitely a crowd puller and i've been getting asked about them all day. So, is the extra $100-200 worth it, well that depends on if you want to wear something stylish or not. PS: I have the special edition Matt Black Finish colour, it looks cool and classy.

    These headphones are a totally enjoyable listening experience. Highly recommend it. The 4 is because of the price.

    PS: When I first listened to them out of the box the sound was terrible, with excessive highs, very little bass and almost no mids. I used it for approx 1 hour and also the battery wentfrom 5 to 3 lights in that time. I left them overnight charging and trying them again this morning was a totally different experience both in sound and battery life. I believe it requires some sort "breaking in period" and a recharge overnight when first out of the box.

    The headphone I love, just improved.

    I used to have my old gen Beats Studio headphones, I recently bought this new pair from my local apple retail and I really like them, especially when I listen to pop songs and those which has lot of bass effect, this looks much more slim compare with the old ones and they are more comfortable is well, but still, after 2 or 3 hours wearing them, still hurt my ear, but overall, great headphones.

    Really, really good...

    I do own quite a lot of headphones / earphones as no one pair will be best for everything - so have managed to do quite a few comparisons. The Beats Studio Wireless certainly sound better (to my ears) than either the Bowers & Wilkins P5, Bose QC15 or Bose AE2W. They have the benefits of the Bose QC15 (having noise cancellation) and Bose AE2W (being wireless but no noise cancellation) so really the best of both in terms of features and sound better than either.

    Although not my primary concern they also 'look' better than either of the Bose headsets and although I was also considering the Bose QC25 the Beats Studio Wireless sound / look great and can be used wireless or wired.

    Love my Studio Beats

    I've had these about 3 months and have never been sorry. Totally reliable and they pair easily with my devices (iPhone, iPad and iMac). The sound is great and they are comfortable over the ears. No complaints whatsoever - just praise!

    Tight Fit

    The "Rubber Band" was really Tight and comfortable, Feels smooth, and the sound quality? It sounds quite smooth just like it's competitors! I even went on a roller coaster with these on, and at the end, AMAZING! They didn't fall off! Great job Dr. Dre. I would be really satisfied with this. Overall, I am satisfied.

    Awesome Bluetooth Headphones

    Build: This headset feels pretty solid and not flimsy. It definitely won't survive someone stepping on it, but rigid enough such that it's a joy to put your hands on. Although the matte colour feels like a finger print magnet so you might have to be prepared to have a cleaning cloth (included in box) to wipe it down after use each time. The weight is just about right such that listening to it for 2 hours straight doesn't cause a strain on my neck.

    Sound: I will not say I'm an expert at audio quality. The music comes out crisp and clear so that's enough by my standards. Many of the review sites I visited have said that music with lots of bass would play better with this pair of headphones. I can't disagree with that. I listen to a span of different genres of music and have found all of them a pleasure to listen with.

    Features: Connecting via Bluetooth was a matter of seconds. It has play/forward/rewind/pause/volume function integrated on the headset. It is able to take calls as well with the inbuilt mic. However with the headset on (and the somewhat noise cancelling effect), I feel like I tend to talk a lot louder than I should be - So unless you're in a private place, I would recommend answering calls with the phone itself (just to be polite I suppose).

    Battery: After using the headset for about 4 hours, the Bluetooth icon on the iPhone shows the battery life of your headset and it shows about 2/3 life remaining.

    Conclusion: If I were asked are these a good pair of headphones, I would say yes and recommend them. The only reason for the 4 stars is the price. I would say it's a tad steep.
