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 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.
  • 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 Dr. Dre Studio

PC Magazine
19 January 2014
  • 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.

Beats By Dre Studio Review

LAPTOP Magazine
30 August 2013
  • 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).

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. Also, between the inconsistent frequency response depending on volume levels and the mysterious thumping we heard in our right here, we feel the Beats Acoustic Engine causes more problems than it...
  • 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

Beats by Dre Studio Wireless

Channel5
26 May 2012
  • 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.

17 April 2012
  • Summary: The Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones deliver the trifecta of sleek, comfortable design, useful features, and top-notch sound quality. If you can afford them, they're a worthy investment toward an improved listening experience.
  • Pros: The Monster Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones offer a stylish and comfortable design as well as an exceptionally crisp and balanced audio response with a tight low-end and warm mids. Included are a nice carrying case and a music-phone-compatible cable.
  • Cons: The Monster Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones cannot be used without batteries, they're expensive, and the glossy black design is very smudge-prone.

Beats Studio Wireless: A pricey Bluetooth headphone with premium sound

CNET
17 April 2012
  • 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.

Beats Studio 2013: Radically better-sounding than the original

CNET
12 April 2012
  • Summary: They may not be a bargain at $300, but the new Beats Studio headphones are lighter and better-built, and sound significantly better than the original Beats Studio model.
  • Pros: The new Beats Studio headphones are lighter, sturdier, and better-sounding than the original Studio headphones. They offer a comfortable fit and active noise cancellation, which works well but not great. The noise cancellation is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery that offers up to 20 hours of battery life. The headphones fold up to fit in a nice carrying case (included).
  • Cons: Very faint hiss from noise cancellation; if the internal battery dies, the headphones don't work; fairly pricey at $300.
