    Noise canceling? Not!!!

    • Written by Luis M

    I have bought many apple products, I know these are “beats by DR. Dre”. But, there are owned by apple. And in my opinion any apple product belongs in the trash. I was excited to buy a pair of these since beats have been a trend for a while “the cool thing to have”. The buttons on the side is so freaking loud wether you are wearing them (high volume) of not! The battery life is very bad it doesn’t last as long as it says it does. They are also very uncomfortable! I prefer Bose or JBL over beats or any apple product!

    not worth the money

    • Written by Ellen D

    I have had two pairs of these headphones in the part three years. They both died unexpectedly and nothing would turn them back on. I emailed customer support to see how to fix them, and they said I would have to send them in to get repaired... for $100. At that rate, you might as well buy new headphones. I loved that these headphones were noise cancelling, but I would not recommend. Not worth the money, especially when you get zero help in return from customer care!

    Cheap and poor quality. Not durable or ideal for use longterm.

    • Written by Sumeya S from Toronto

    I spent $300 on these headphones, and they broke within a few months of using them. The material used to make the product is very cheap and flimsy. It is not convenient to use when making or receiving calls, as the person you are speaking to will not be able to hear you. When I contacted support, they weren't much help, and said I'd have to purchase repairs (i.e., there was a crack on the side, which btw was not caused by careless use). They wouldn't do anything about the fact that I couldn't use them to make calls. Overall, the product is not at all worth the money, and I do not recommend wasting your money on Apple products.

    Do not by Beats Studio3! They break easily!!

    • Written by Denise H from St Joseph

    After 4 months of minimal use, the Beats Sudio3 Wireless headphones snapped at the hinge. Contacted customer service and sent them in for repair. They will look for any reason not to cover the repair!! If you call to talk to customer service, they will do nothing to help you resolve the issue, they will only waste your time!! Their ‘replacement’ cost was $70 higher than what you could buy the same product for on the DrDre website - what a joke!!! This product was such a disappointment and the customer service was so dismal, I will not buy another Apple product again:(

    don't buy if you want to use outdoors

    • Written by ob L

    Apple states it will work for 3 hrs+. And it will as long as you don't what to use them outdoors. If you do, the battery fails if it gets a bit cold. I have experienced as low as 10 minutes. Before you buy you should apparently telepathically know to check this page https://www.beatsbydre.com/headphones/studio3-wireless before buying (scroll to bottom to see reviews), because according to apple if you store or charge them wrong, the battery won't last. What they don't mention is that if you store & charge them right but then want to use them outdoors, the battery will deplete in a record amount of time & within .5 hours of being outdoors, the battery will die.

    Ok, so I’m not one to write reviews but I felt the need to stress my dissatisfaction with this company. I have been a user for almost 5 years and I have gone though a total of 7 pairs, 4 Powerbeats, and 3 solos. These headphones are downright awful!! I’ve had to send pair after pair in multiple times for repairs because they are made so poorly. I’m heavily involved with fitness which is their primary use, and they continue to fail me. I just sent in my Powerbeats 3 because the earpiece detached from the headphone and this is 3 months after I sent them in the first time for shorting out ( I assume from sweat) and they were replaced. As I sit here now my solo 3 is making a humming sound in my right ear, and I just bought these back in November as well for work. I believe in making things last so therefore I TAKE CARE of my stuff (putting them away correctly, wiping them down after use) but no matter what I do it doesn’t seem to work. For the $ and time I advise going with a different brand, this is the last time I ever buy a pair from this company. Thank you for taking my $ and wasting my time.

    Do not buy Beats Studio 3!!!

    • Written by Amanda R

    We bought our 13yr old son the new studio 3 wireless beats for Christmas. He had them a week before one ear speaker was Falling off. He is very good with his stuff, and even if he pulled them off his head by the ear it shouldn’t come off that easily!! He has the solo 2 headphones with no issue and the wireless ear buds, no issues, so we send them to Apple (after going to the store and being told “with no appt they wont even look at them and if a repair is needed they will ship it off anyways”). They send them back and say we have to pay $200 for accidental damage. After several reviews I have read, And a couple of his friend’s had the EXACT SAME issue with the speaker falling off an ear, I know this particular model is garbage. We will never buy beats again.

    Pieces of S*** and so is the customer service

    • Written by Lorenzo S

    These beats are garbage. The quality is too cheap for the price. The sound quality is decent but the frame and materials are very easily broken. Normal use of folding the Beats to put them in the case causes the arms to break. I paid the $200.00 repair price and was given refurbished Beats that broke within year. After calling to get a replacement for those I was told that I would need to pay another $200.00 because the warranty goes 1 year from the date of purchase of the original Beats you bought. So after owning them for 1 year your warranty expires. DO NOT buy this product! Excellent sound but horrible build quality.

    Beats are not worth the cost.

    • Written by Sylvia G

    If I could rate lower than 1 Star, I would! This is the second pair of beats I purchased and have had the same issue with them both. The headset breaks where the earphone part is supposed to bend. I have had these headphones for about a year and I can't believe Apple sells such poor quality products. I still have the box and the headphones literally look new. My son loves to use headphones to cancel out noise and listen to music. He is on the Autism spectrum and is very careful with his things. He is the kid that takes such good care of all his possessions. He has never broken any of his electronics (phones, games, etc) As a matter of fact he still had his original iPod that is over 10 years old. Obviously, to pay over $150 to get these fixed is beyond ridiculous. I can purchase Bose for about $200. I don't think we will be using Beats any longer.

    cracked headphone apple refused to fix

    • Written by Jonathan S

    STAY AWAY FROM THESE BUY OTHER HEADPHONES FIRST. Had these studio 3 headphones for less than a year and a major crack developed below the hinge on the right ear piece. The plastics and materials used are VERY very cheap for a 300 dollar product and they broke over time simply by opening and closing the latch. Apple refused to cover this under the warranty and has completely lost me as a customer. Multiple iPhone, MacBook, beats purchases. Gone downhill ever since Steve jobs died IMO.

    low quality

    • Written by Ethan S

    I purchased a pair from Best Buy. I took them home and connected them to my iPhone via Bluetooth. They worked 3 times I connected and than the right side stopped working. I am disappointed in the quality of the product. They literally broke 3 hours after I bought them.

    Terrible quality

    • Written by Isaac L from Tucson

    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!

    Cheap Junk!

    • Written by TC B

    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

    • Written by William N

    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.

    Dismal comfort, cheap feel***skip it

    • Written by Manuel R from DENVER

    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.

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

    • Written by Robert M from Bellevue

    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.

    These headphones were terrible since the day I bought them.

    • Written by Rodriguez D from Austin

    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.

    Worst Headphones I've Ever Owned

    • Written by Steven R from Dallas

    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!

    They will break on you. Not worth it. Go with Bose!

    • Written by Anthony E from Brooklyn

    I got these headphones less than a year ago and I agree with most of the reviews, they are awesome, BUT after wearing them and charging them for a few months, they stopped charging. It is not a problem with the chord, but the headphones themselves seem to stop charging. It first started with having to place the headphones in a very very specific charging position, but after a month or two this wouldn't even do the trick anymore. So they worked for a few months, but I will now have to buy a new pair, and if they worked I would buy them again, but I don't want to shell out $350 every year for headphones. At that price point, they shouldn't die within the first year of purchase. I'm switching to Bose.
