Beats by Dre Studio Review

23 August 2013
  • Conclusion: While the new Beats Studio deliver a re-voiced sound as promised, the changes aren’t all for the better. We do appreciate that bass response has been toned down several notches, but there’s sharpness to the midrange and an inconsistency to the treble that we found off-putting.
  • Pros: Lighter, stronger and sleeker, Dual-mode noise-cancelling, Auto-off switch, Rechargeable battery, Effective noise cancelling, More controlled bass than before
  • Cons: Odd thumping noise in right ear when pushed, Response curve seems to change with volume, Treble is shrill and piercing at times, When battery dies, so does the music
