Beats by Dre Studio Wireless
4 weeks ago
Summary: 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.
Conclusion: The Beats by Dre Studio Wireless won’t win the hearts of audiophiles any time soon, but the company did a good thing by taming the bass and presenting a clearer overall sound. Thanks to the Bluetooth streaming process, these headphones manage to keep sparkling treble without aggravating us with piercing highs all the time. As a result, we wore the Studio Wireless headphones for a much longer than any other Beats headphone we’ve tested thus far.
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: Has there ever been a headphone brand so controversial as Beats? It's undeniably popular; just walk around any downtown or airport in any industrialized country and you're almost sure to see a set.
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.
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.
Beats Studio Wireless: A pricey Bluetooth headphone with premium sound
7 November 2011
Summary: While it'll cost you a hefty $380, the Beats Studio Wireless is an excellent wireless Bluetooth headphone.
Pros: The Beats Studio Wireless is a very comfortable over-the-ear wireless headphone that offers excellent sound for a Bluetooth headphone and features active noise-canceling technology. The headphones fold up into a more compact form factor and battery life is decent at 12 hours of wireless listening. They also worked well as a wireless headset for making cell-phone calls.
Cons: Expensive; if the integrated rechargeable battery dies, the music dies.
