Beats Studio Wireless Review
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...
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.
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.
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
