    Overpriced

    I hate to see bad reviews just like this one, but nothing about these headphones justifies the price, besides their look. They are indeed very fashionable, but at $350, just don’t buy these. The sound is not very clear at all, which for the type of music I listen to (heavy metal), they just aren’t worth the price. However, they have gone down in price a lot, all the way to $220. This however, is still too much money for headphones that just don’t sound good. I absolutely hate being negative on beats, but when I tried these out, they sounded like $50 headphones, if I’m being generous. Just don’t buy these headphones, because if no one buys these bad headphones, Beats will be forced to either add quality to their headphones, or just go out of business.

    Terrible quality

    I would rate these 0 stars if I could. I had these for barely over a year and got them as a gift. Within a couple months of slight use the fake leather on the ear cups was peeling off. This made the headphones look and feel terrible (not like they were comfy in the first place). These headphones are heavy and I was never able to wear them for more than an hour without my ears hurting. I called apple about this and they told me it was going to be $150 just to replace the earcups! BUY BOSE. BOSE ARE MORE COMFY, BETTER SOUND QUALITY, AND HAVE REPLACEABLE EARCUPS!!!!! THESE HEADPHONES ARE JUNK. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    Feel the bass from these wireless beauties

    the beats studio wireless 3 in white are spectacular noise cancelling headphones. u won't hear an outside peep when these are on your ears. i love the gold accents and how u can control the volume and playback from the b=beats button on left cup. they pair quickly to my ipod touch for the gym and backyard pool area. finally no more wires to get tangled up when i am working out. the bass is out of this world. i listen to techno and hip hop music and the bass growls just right and loud. plus they are super stylish and comfortable. 5 stars all the way.

    Cheap Junk!

    I bought my Beats Studios a year ago and only use them when I travel (they aren't used daily). The cheap nylon coating is peeling off the ear cups and the female charging connector inside the headphone has become loose; I have to wedge the headphones into a corner in order to charge them. These headphones have been stored in their case when not in use as I am dedicated to taking top care of all my electronic accessories. I would not recommend these overpriced poor excuse for a headphone to anyone.

    Terrible, returned

    These headphones are terrible for the price, I returned mine almost immediately.The earcups are badly padded as they don’t have a lot of padding, the headband is not well padded, the anc wasn’t that good when I tested as I could only detect a small dip in volume and not worth the minus 18 hours in battery life as advertised. And the battery brings me to the next point, mine drained incredibly fast as it came charged at 100% and over 2 hours with no anc, it went to 62%. These don’t fare much better as headphones as they are cheaply made out of plastic and is massively oversized, making it hard to move around in, defeating the purpose of Bluetooth. If it sounded good, I’d be fine with it but the sound quality is as good as the rest, which is too say terrible. Practically no bass and even if you want a clean and even sound with less bass, then these don’t even do that as these sound like the drivers are under mud. I recommend Sony WH1000XM2 as they have more bass and still are clean sounding, or Sennheiser PXC 550 if you want something lighter and easier to move in. Those are much better than this terrible product.

    Bad Bass boost in Flight when using Noise Cancellation.

    Not sure if this product is tested at higher altitudes coz, I had bad experiences with my Studio3 on every flight flying at higher altitudes. When noise cancellation is enabled and at normal passenger plane altitudes, all of a sudden, the Bass of any playing song increases to a point where its unbearable to hear and never goes away even after switching on and off. I'd have to wait for several minutes switching off and On to get back to normal state. Often times, I had this problem when I had to take off headphones(with songs playing) to have some snacks and then put in on to hear the songs messed up. May be its going into a bad feedback loop with noise cancellation.

    At all other times(Ground level), it works really great. But as a frequent traveller, this is really annoying.

    Anyone else encountered this issue ?

    I'm planning to take this to Apple store and swap it for a new one, but I really cannot explain the reason coz, it only happens on an Airplane.

    Best headphones I’ve ever used

    I ran a recording studio, have been a professional musician for over 40 years, and used many high end headphones. To me, these are by far the best. Clean, loud, great bass. Love ‘em. Highly recommended.

    More awesome fun from the great Beats brand!

    Studio3 Wireless offers a new experience for the BEATS fan like me. The new adaptive ANC allows me to hear more of the BEATS style of sound and I’m really enjoying it! The bass is less augmented but creates a more balanced sound field. I love the augmented bass of the Studio (2) Wireless and the Powerbeats3 Wireless and great punch of Solo3 Wireless but the Studio3 breaks new ground for Beats!

    Dismal comfort, cheap feel***skip it

    I bought a set of BEATS Studio 3 and the first feel I got when I opened the box was how cheap it felt. Plastique, uncomfortable to wear, too heavy, too tight, too expensive. Get Sennheiser, Sony, etc...THE UPSIDE Very easy to set up with  TV and ok sound quality . I hope the studio 4 is a much better design.

    Great near to perfect

    This is probably the best headphone I’ve ever bought in my life. - Sounds awesome. - Sits and feels awesome. - Great functionalities with perfect Apple integration. There is nearly nothing missing. Only one suggestion maybe possible with a update as we are talking about Airplay2 at the moment with multi room, which I really enjoy very much, what you think about the possibility to share music with a friend same time from one iPhone or watch a action movie with your partner on AppleTV while the kids are sleeping? Would be the best experience ever I guess.

    Excellent headphones

    I cant believe how many people are critical of these. I used to be one of them, but not anymore. I am guessing that a lot of people are writing there reviews on older versions of beats that were bass heavy, but that has changed with the Studio3 version. I kind of wish that there was maybe a little more bass in them. I seem to get new headphones every couple years. This year I have auditioned 3 different ones, the Bose (non noise cancelling), the Vmoda Crossfade 2 wireless and the beats. The Bose are fine, but personally I find them boring. When I got the Vmoda's I thought I had found the perfect wireless headphones. They sound amazing, look very cool, and are comfortable. As of writing this, I am still going back and forth between the Vmoda's and the beats. they both look great, they both sound great and they are both comfortable, but the reason I will probably get the Beats is because of the huge battery life, and the range of bluetooth that I get in my house. The Vmoda's start to cut out in certain areas, but the Beats do not. The range of the bluetooth is fantastic. I still have not made my final decision, but because of the battery life and range I will probably keep the Beats.

    Not recommend, Apple took this over they don’t stand behind the product....

    Before Apple took this brand over if I ever had a problem it was taken care of . Now I have $1000 worth of beats stuff, and $600 of it is going in the trash. No matter is it is in the ear over the ear or standard head phones, do not waste your time or money in to this brand. Apple has failed as a company and as you can see the reviews prove this. My in ear devices need a little piece of felt to fix them, O sorry we can’t sale that to you, but for $120 plus shipping and tax we can fix them!! My wireless studio head phones I used under 50 times at the gym the pads are falling apart, Amazon I can get the parts for $11 Apple wants $150 Oh yes plus ship and tax to fix their own poor design. I hope they do not start making cars, we will need to pay for the recalls, what a joke.

    Ouch!

    I've never owned a pair of beats before this, but these are, without a doubt, the most uncomfortable headphones I’ve ever worn. Granted, I have a big head and my ears are a little larger than the average persons so if this is your situation as well, these are not for you. Trust me. I wore these for about 20-30 mins and the clamping force was unbelievable not to mention the fact that the cups have absolutely no depth whatsoever so my ears were smashed against the speaker grill. After that period I had to take them off as I had a headache and my ear was throbbing and red for at least the next hour.

    The sound quality was decent, not equal to others in the same price range though. The bass was not as punchy as I had been led to believe about beats, the mids were slightly drowned out, and I believe that if you were able to wear these for an extended period without pain due to tightness you would eventually be pained by the harshness of the highs. Good sound stage. Definitely for people with smaller ears and heads though.

    Side note:what happened to the color choices!?

    These headphones were terrible since the day I bought them.

    1.) Ear cups started to flake off within the first year.
    2.) Software and bluetooth are buggy.
    3.) Both ends of the headphones broke after lightly using them for 3 years.

    I suggest buying Bose headphones for the same price.

    There are truly great headphones

    These headphones are pure quality. Many are having trouble picking between these and the Sony and Bose. These are an easy win. I personally tested the other two and I pick these. Not only are the WAY more stylish and beautiful, but they are amazing sounding. You have to be a very noise sensitive person to ever recognize the difference between these headphones. Even still, the Beats take the win in every aspect. I 100% recommend these

    Worst Headphones I've Ever Owned

    These are the most expensive yet the worst quality headphones I've ever owned. The looked so good and they're expensive, I just assumed they would be at least as good or better than my cheap bose. That's not the case. I keep them on my desk and never traveled with them yet they started falling apart within the first 6 months. I took them to the apple store and they told me it would cost around 200 to repair them. I opted to use tape and super glue. This was fine for another nine months, then the left ear started cutting out. I assumed this was the headphone cord so after having to look for a cord that would fit in the headphone jack (no any cord will work because the jack is sunk 4-6mm into the headphones) I found out that it's not the cord the headphones are just bad quality and not working enough to even use corded. I forgot to mention that the Bluetooth rarely ever worked from the time I got them. Good luck!
