Beats Studio Wireless Review

Digitaltrends
18 February 2014
  • 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...
  • Pros: Bluetooth tames treble some, Better-controlled bass, Adequate noise cancelling, Long-lasting battery, Sleek design
  • Cons: Lack of dynamics, Some hiss when music isn’t active, Response curve changes with volume, When the battery dies, so does the music

Beats By Dre Studio Review

LAPTOP Magazine
30 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Beats By Dre has updated its headphone line with the new Studio, an active noise-cancelling model that improves on its predecessor in many ways. At $299, however, you're still paying for Dr. Dre's name and style and sound that's tweaked to fit modern (read loud and bass-heavy) tastes.

Beats by Dre Studio Review

Digitaltrends
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

  • 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.

  • Summary: Beats claims, "Music as the artist intended," and "You're not hearing all the music.." This leads me to expect that I will make new discoveries in familiar music when I listen through Beats headphones.
  • Pros: Good sound; great comfort; great looks
  • Cons: Slight hiss; steep price

  • Summary: When I first got these headphones I was like WOW they look so beautiful! Then i tried it on, it felt great and comfortable on my head but when the sound came out, I was like "What the hell? Where's all the hype about the bass?" It sounded NOTHING like any other beats before.
  • Pros: Style, Sound, Noise Cancellation, Mute Button on the Left Side
  • Cons: Beats Stigma, Needs Burn in

Beats by Dr. Dre Studio

PC Magazine
29 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The product that started the celebrity-endorsed headphone craze gets an update, but the Beats Studio is still intended for bass lovers and not for audiophiles.
  • Pros: Delivers powerful audio with deep bass and very crisp highs. Quite comfortable. Comes with two detachable cables, one with inline remote control. Rechargeable battery.
  • Cons: Overpriced. Wildly sculpted sound signature not for purists. Can't be used in passive mode. The familiar design is either a draw or a repellent.
