REVIEW: Beats by Dre new Beats Studio Over-Ear Headphones
8 November 2013
Excerpt: The smartphone - I don't have to tell you - is nowadays far more than just a mobile phone with touchscreen but as important functionalities like phone and Internet access are, as important are features like the camera and music playback. No wonder that, according to a recent survey of Germany BITKOM, 93 % of the Germans between 14 and 29 use headsets and that around 54 % of all headset users use them with smartphones.
Summary: There's no denying the appeal of the new Beats Studio's hip styling and muscular sound. These are not for audio purists -- they deliberately color the sound in favor of aggressive styles of music. Travelers can do better on the noise cancellation front (nothing beats the Bose QC15 in that department).
Excerpt: No-one does cool quite like Dr Dre and the folks at Beats Audio. These noise-cancelling headphones look the part, but do they sound it? We put them to the test: see (and hear) what we made of them in the clip above.
Conclusion: Beats by Dre headphones are expensive, and the latest Studio Wireless is no exception: even though they sound great (although bass-heavy) you're ultimately paying far too much for just the name and the styling. Its wireless Bluetooth and noise-cancelling tech is impressive, and its battery life is plenty to last you out and about, but it's not enough to warrant the price tag - we love the Studio Wireless headphones, but we just wish it wasn't so pricey.
Pros: Strapping on a pair of Beats headphones is nothing short of a fashion statement these days, but there's no question that these are an attractive pair of cans even if you're not a fan of the brand. Not only do they look good, but they're also comfortable too: the cups are padded with soft leather that cover your ears gently, and they also shield out external noise, letting you concentrate on your tunes - and even after extended listening sessions, they didn't give any ...
Cons: There's not too much to fault the Beats Studio Wireless on, as it performs its job very well and it looks good doing it too - but there is an according extortionate price tag. For £329.95, it borders on audiophile territory, but it doesn't bring in the same quality that many keen listeners will be looking for. On top of that, when there's no music playing, there can be an annoying hiss at times, which is distracting and is something you wouldn't expect from a top-end ...
Excerpt: The new Beats by Dr Dre Beatbox from Monster gets a good going over….. The commercial success of Beats by Dr Dre headphones in recent years has inevitably led to an expansion of the company’s product range; this time, Dre gets busy with a beatbox.
Excerpt: When Monster and beats by dr. dre first announced the Beatbox, we initially said it will probably sound like Dr. Dre is screaming in your face. Well from ...
Pros: Excellent bass reproduction for any music genre. Designed to fit in any room with its corner design. Fills a room with music. Really shines when you play with your iPhone/iPod set to optimum equalizer settings. The active wireless module probably means future peripherals are coming.
Cons: Pricey. Front grille easily bends when you push it. No mini to mini stereo cable included. No app. Remote control is less than impressive. Improper placement of the device in a room can hinder the sound experience coming from the Beatbox.
Summary: The Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones are by no means a bad product; these are truly unique in appearance and quite good
in the musical genres
these were created for, but these are far from a good product when you look at the overall value.
Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones' high price, flimsy construction, lack of printed specifications, and poor technical support are four reasons for us to tell you that you should definitely look elsewhere for headphones at this or...
Summary: Few brands of headphones have achieved popularity and consumer adoption as quickly as Monster's Beats by Dre series. We recently purchased our own pair of the Beats' Studio Edition headphones to tell you if these are merely marketing fluff or the "real deal.
Review: Monster Cable Headphones; “Beats” by Dr Dre
16 August 2010
Conclusion: I wouldn’t suggest a pair of Monster Cable Beats headphones to extreme audiophiles – but as a high end option for kids and bedroom producers, you could do far worse. “Studio quality” is a boast that the Beats don’t quite live up to, but all the same, there’s still an awful lot of quality on board. Sounds good with hip hop and all forms of dance music, from 20′s swing, to dubstep.
