    Sounds like a mud puddle

    • Written by bryan D

    Got these when I bought a laptop. The closest-in-price headphones I’ve listened to extensively are the Grado 225’s I bought 15 years ago ($150 or so). I also have various Pioneer SX (1970s)/NAD/B&W/JM Labs/Speakerworks home setups, so I do have some idea of what good sound is. I also use the same reference tracks that I use to judge setups. I’ve listened to Abba’s “Take a Chance on Me” on dozens, possibly hundreds, of equipment combinations. On a good rig, you hear brilliant separation and dynamic range. You feel like you’re in the room, surrounded by instruments. Crisp, punchy, tight, and engaging.
    Through the Beats, it sounds like dumping mud puddle in your ear. By far the worst I’ve ever heard, including the time the magnet fell of the back of the tweeters of my JMs. The bass is loose and sloppy, and the mids and highs seem to be trying and failing to sprint up a crumbly sand dune to catch up. I’m trying to think of other descriptors, but I keep coming back to muddy. Sticky, clay-y mud. I’m beyond disappointed, I’m offended.
    If you got these with a laptop purchase, leave them in the package and sell them for whatever you can get.

    Worst headphone sound ever!Shame on Apple to sell such poor quality product

    • Written by CLAUDE L from Mercer Island

    Beautiful box, beautiful design, comfortable headphones ... horrible sound !!! What matters more? To me, top sound quality should be a given in a $350 product. I am shocked and angry at Apple (I have been a faithful customer to nearly 30 years, and have owned over 30 Macs). I feel I have been betrayed by Apple in trusting their reputation for top quality. If they are so demanding with quality and perfection, how could they allow Beats to sell such poor products?

    Broke in 20 days. Cannot return after 14

    • Written by William F from Woodbridge

    Headphones stopped working after 20 days for no reason - wouldn’t sync, wouldn’t reset and wouldn’t power off. The return policy is for 14 days so I couldn’t return them. Had to get warranty repair which meant it was sent away and I didn’t have use of them for a week. Not very reassuring that they are so unreliable and in a year if I have issues and it is out of warranty I’m out of luck.

    Not suitable for us large-headed mesomorphs

    • Written by Scott C from Langley

    I was quite happy with mine, until the months of stretching to span the vast distance between my ears caused the plastic retainers over the inside of the sizing slide mechanisms to crack and eventually fracture. They're still somewhat functional, but it's only a matter of time until they're completely broken and unusable. Cannot recommend if your head is larger than normal like mine (I wear a size 7-and-7/8 hat).

    Beats Studio 3

    • Written by Jayden B from Pompton Lakes

    So, for a while I had no headphones that worked with my school laptop. I told my parents that I needed headphones and decided to try to get the Beats Studio 3. Yesterday I finally got them. Simply put, I love them. First of all, they look awesome. A lot of my friends told me how cool the headphones looked. Second, trey sound good. I don’t find anything particularly special about the sound quality. Its pretty good. I wouldn’t say the bass is as intense as people say it is but maybe that’s just me. Third, they’re very comfortable. Without noise canceling on, the headphones feel really good. Much better than earbuds. With noise canceling, they feel weird. They kind of feel like they’re pulling on your ears. It’s not unbearable, though. Speaking of, I was amazed by how noise canceling feels to use. While listening to music, you basically can’t hear a thing. Without music, every sound I hear sounds about 59% quieter. Also a side note: When I unboxed the Beats Studio 3, it was the best I ever felt opening a box. If you’ve seen an unboxing video on them, you would get why. So that’s basically it. While I do think these headphones are overpriced and should be $259 at most, I recommend these headphones to anyone looking for wireless headphones who uses apple devices. For Android users, I still recommend it, but slightly less.

    Almost perfect

    • Written by Владислав К from Toronto

    Design 10/10, sound 10/10, fun factor 10/10, they doesn’t look like any other headphones (in a good way) but the plastic on hinges (these gold covers) looks cheap and not reliable

    Great sound, poor quality

    • Written by Dmitriy M from Royal Oak

    Headband cracked on both sides after 2-3 month of use. I will try to get them replaced, but according to reddit this is very common and I'm sure new pair will do the same after a while... Sound is great tho...

    Good Headphones

    • Written by David D from Zealand

    For what these are designed for I really like them. I am going to school for music production so I'm pretty picky about sound. They are really good for listening to music while traveling, coffee shop, library, ect. I always use them when I do homework even if I'm not playing music because they have good noise cancelling. They have good clear sound too. However, if you're looking for headphones to mix with or use in a studio setting I would get something else.

    Awesome headphones

    • Written by Michael R from Brisbane

    Don't listen to people saying the sound isn't good. The sound is superb, I recommend using Apple Music or Spotify EQ to find the right setting you like the best. Out of the box they sound fine, but simply changing the EQ turn these into something else entirely, the sound of your music transforms and they can hit any range with clarity, although they still seem to emphasise bass which sounds crisp, full and deep.

    Bad sound quality, lots of lag

    • Written by vinod V

    I thought these headphones were good since they are so expensive! The lag is unbearable! I have AKG headphones for my Samsung Galaxy S9+ and they cost half the price-with better sound quality! I feel these headphones are just status symbols and they aren't made for the best customer satisfaction. I will be returning these headphones! Do yourself a favor AND STAY AWAY! There are many other headphones that cost much less with better sound quality and less lag.

    studio 3

    • Written by Max C from montreal

    These headphones are terrible for the price. I have the bose 35 and sony WH1000 and can surely say they are the worst of the three in terms of music quality, comfort and noise cancelling. They are durable and stiff which makes them good headphones to work out with, but for $400 the noise cancelling is similar to $40 sony headphones you buy at an airport. The sound quality is very similar to air pods, however, do have a bit more bass. They are loud but overall would not recommend. The best bet is the sony's in terms of sound quality, loudness and noise cancelling, but if your focus is on comfort, the bose are the best option.

    The Skyline Collection is the Limit!!

    • Written by Jim N from Milwaukee

    These are simply the best headphones for me. I'm constantly moving around and they stay on my ears and provide pristine sound. The best features thus far is the ability to cancel noise surrounding me. Once I go to my Bluetooth setting and adjust to cancel the noise, everything around me disappears automatically. Where were these years ago when my mom was nagging me to clean my room....LOL!!. They are worth the expense.Get a pair today!!

    Best headphones I ever used

    • Written by David G from Waupun

    Oh, my God. Most of my life I was a professional musician. I'm very picky about sound quality. I try to use nothing but the best. I have Bose and AKG headphones, best ones they make, but when I switched to the iPhone X the Apple store had these on sale (wireless), so I bought them. Wow. They are awesome. Don't even look at anything else, just buy these. I absolutely love mine. Find myself listening to music a lot more now because of them.
