Beats by Dre Studio Wireless
14 April 2014
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.
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: These headphones look and sound very good, and are best suited to casual use like walking around town or listening at your desk.

Pros: Style, Sound, Noise Cancellation, Mute Button on the Left Side
Conclusion: I should point out that as I wore the Beats By Dre for a few weeks during this review, multiple strangers asked me longingly where I acquired them. Initially in short supply, word is apparently out on them already, and they have become a bona fide object of lust: Even the squat, semi-hard case with...
Pros: Outstanding audio on a range of applications, Effective noise cancellation, Eminently comfortable, Sexy esthetics (these are the "turn-ons" after all), No sound at all without batteries, or when noise cancellation switched off, Monster warns against headband damage if handled roughly, Folds small...
Cons: No sound at all without batteries, or when noise cancellation switched off, Monster warns against headband damage if handled roughly, Folds smaller but not flat
