    Poor Quality & Overpriced

    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!

    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.

    Average

    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.

    Second pair broke, i give up

    First pair ear pads came away after 16 months, replacements snapped at the adjuster after 2 years of use. Premium price, budget product. #DeadBeats

    No distractions, just music

    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!

    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!!

    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?

    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.
