    Much better headphones out there

    • Written by B G

    £300 for headphones that do not go louder than the room around me. The worst element for me is that they still need battery to use them with the wire?? I find that utterly bizarre. If `I have battery I'm using them wirelessly! Really disappointed with them, £300 down the drain, buy other headphones.

    Great headphones

    • Written by Colin D from Shipley

    Headphones sound great
    the Noise cancelling is brilliant, it almost silences the noisy office that I work in.
    They're comfortable to wear all day.

    The case needs more work. There is nowhere to store the charging and external cables that come with the headphones. Apples workaround is to jam them in under the headband, but that's a squeese and for the standards of apples products I'm surprised that this hasn't been thought through better. I would much prefer to have a separate pocket to keep these cables in.

    Future ideas
    I've made a small modification to my headphones. The charging port is the micro-USB that comes on alot of devices. To help my headphones last longer, rather than using the included USB Charge cable, I'd found a 3rd party MagSafe style USB Charging cable. Since MagSafe was an Apple invention in the first place, it would be fantastic to see something like this build into the headphones as it will relieve stress on the charging port. I'm saying this, as I love my Beats Studio3 and want them to last as long as possible.

    If only they where a little louder

    • Written by Sam O

    These headphones are the best wireless headphones I've ever purchased but they just need to be louder, I can still hear background noise when I'm outside so I usually use them indoors, overall amazing sound quality and they look very clean too Nice job Apple.

    Beats Studio3 Wireless Over‑Ear Headphones - Shadow Grey

    • Written by Sean W from Ballasalla

    Beautiful looking design. Exceptional build quality. Sound quality massively lacking in detail. Not especially good on bass or high frequencies, just dull. Look and feel like £300 worth, sound like £50 worth to my ears.

    Awful quality, returned the same day

    • Written by Marc W from Tadley

    Build quality is very cheap, which I could deal with. However the sound quality is absolutely atrocious. At first, I assumed there was a problem with the connection, or that my hearing was going. I played around with various equaliser settings on my phone ( iPhone 8) to no avail. After about 30 minutesI gave my old Plantronics office headset this was supposed to replace ( that cost half the price ) another listen and the warm, vibrant sounds that emanated from them confirmed that my hearing was in fact fine and it was just these awful Beats headphones at fault. Really not worth £300.

    Poor Quality & Overpriced

    • Written by Cameron B from Brentwood

    I received this product as a gift last year and after frequent trials I fail to be impressed. Firstly, the connection drops whenever you listen to something other than a music app (so no YouTube or social media). Secondly, the ANC is poor - on 8 flights I have used them and with the volume on supposedly on full not only are they quiet (for reference I found my pair of PowerBeats3 to have the equivalent volume, but only half way to its maximum, and often found myself listening to movies on full volume and still struggling) but also fail to block out the jet noise and commoption around me, which is a problem I find wherever I use them. With this comes the sound of static whenever I listen over Bluetooth, which goes away when plugged in using the 3.5mm jack. Most importantly, I have found this product to cause my ears and top of my head to ache whenever I use them more than 30mins, resulting me in constantly having to move them around. Moreover, at almost £300 the sound quality appears to be flat and well off the mark, with other £50 headphones performing just as well.

    PROs: Good battery life, high-quality feel.
    CONs: Uncomfortable over longer periods, frequent drop outs, static noise over Bluetooth, poor ANC, not loud enough at full volume, poor sound quality for the price.

    Great Birthday gift!

    • Written by nick B from Wanstead

    I got these as a birthday gift to myself, and as I had a voucher to use, and can say that after first impressions I am very impressed.

    There are easy to pair with my devices, and while they don't completely sound out the noise on the tube, it is fine for what I need them for and means I can listen to my music/pod casts on a pact tube without having to turn up loud!

    They also look great, and never had any issue reporting issues to Apple in past with over products, so feel that if anything did happen I would not have any hassle getting it resolved.

    They look pretty cool, got to admit, but their sound is extremely limited to some low-end EQ automatically preset on them. They are designed to listen to hip-hop. If you want to be a cool kid and become trendy and popular (and waste a lot of money), get these. If you want good headphones, get a pair of Audio-Technicas for half the price and double the quality. They are comfy though.

    No distractions, just music

    • Written by Scott B from Newcastle Under Lyme

    I listen to music on mainly two occasions, one when traveling, (train, plane etc), and when I need to focus on my work without any outside distractions. These headphone cut out all train noise, all passenger noise and allow you to listen to your favourite music without any interuptions. You can hear every note and beat. Perfect for music lovers.

    The noise cancelling is that strong I can be work in a busy coffee shop and feel completely alone.

    Summary: If you like music or want to cut out external noise from the life, these are the headphones for you.

    Outstanding quality!

    • Written by Grant M

    Super happy with my new beats studio3. Amazing sound quality and the noise cancellation works well to block out the variety of noise London life throws at you. Battery life is superb too, lasting me well over 3-4 days of medium usage. Overall a premium product that justifies its price tag.

    Returned After A Week!!

    • Written by David M from London

    Okay, now this needs to be addressed properly, the studio 3 are, well they are not terrible. But they are also no where near great. I purchased these for commuting on the train everyday. I notice while the noise cancelling is on, that screeching you hear when a train is stopping is never picked up with these earphone, but everything else you can barely hear if you just listen properly enough. Now the voice of people is another thing that the earphone doesn't cancel properly, even when i had music on i could still always hear my niece baby in the background. It seems that this earphone cancels high pitched noises, and the rest is dialed down to an acceptable level for some.

    You see i bought these headphone before anyone else had them, reviews weren't out and apple never had them on displayed, now I've heard the solo 3 and i must say that those head phone carry more bass and more solid sound than the studio 3 could ever manner. But if you want to hear how the studio 3 could be, use the aux cable and plug them into a computer and crack the volume up. Now that's sound, now that's how the studio 3's should sound, feel, and listened to.

    But who am i to critique the beats earphone, i'm just a disappointed customer, voicing his words.

    It's good but where is the lightning cable for iPhone?

    • Written by James U from London

    The headphone itself is pretty good and the sound quality is above average for Bluetooth headphones. However, the plastic quality makes it feel rather cheap and what is the story with using micro USB while they change everything else to lightning connector? (Beats X and etc) Also, why supply 3.5mm phone jack to 3.5mm instead of lightning? What about these people who own and iPhone 7 and after? Do we really have to use these ugly as adaptor? I refuse to.
