Summary: After reading this review that says it has a very faint hiss from noise cancelling, I thought that a very faint would be ok, but when I bought it and wore it I noticed that it is not faint. It is like you are listening to the waves!?

Summary: When the good Doctor and Mr. Levine designed these 'phones, they wanted to re-create the sound of a DISCO with ear splitting volume and bone rattling BASS. Did I mention the BASS? Screw Accuracy, or Liquidity or Sound Stage, this thing as the same Chest Pounding BASS as you would encounter at any amped up Club.
Pros: I can make friends laugh if they saw me wearing a pair. Why take out a Student Loan for 'Clown College'...
Cons: The Design, the FIT, the Build Quality, the Sound, the Brand Name, the Price...
Summary: The Studios I used belong to my cousin and he's had them for over a year now and he uses them all the time, so they're well broken in already. I tried them out for about a week because I was on the hunt fot new headphones since my beloved 2-year old in-ear Philips broke recently. I've tried out Skullcandy in the past too. They were alright but they broke after about a month and I didn't even know why.
Pros: Aesthetically pleasing, comes in a variety of colours, decent all-over sound quality.
Cons: Creaks a bit, SOUND LEAKAGE (I can't emphasise on this enough), bass is lacking, PRICE.
Summary: Got my pair today in the mail. Hooked them up, sounded great. Then my lady wanted to try them. That's when I noticed that I could hear everything she was listening to! What? How can that be, I must have missed something. Nope. They leak sound like a sieve. Moments later I boxed em back up & printed out my return label.
Pros: Very beautifully designed, though crappy construction. Very nice sound quality.
Cons: I don't care what anyone says, the amount of sound leakage is completely unacceptable. These headphone are made for portable devices, yet they are not doable in the presence of other people because they leak so much sound., Absurd.
Summary: I'm going to write two reviews. The first is for the person who comes across this site and has to have the Beats. The second is for everyone else.
Do you buy all your clothes from Abercrombie and Finch? Is sound quality a distant second in the things you look for when buying headphones? Do the rims on your car cost more than the car itself?? Then these are for you!! Welcome to the Beats by Dre Studio headphones!
Pros: Looks cool, Comfortable, Has control Talk, Folds up
Summary: DO NOT BUY THESE. I tried these out for 10 minutes at the Apple store, and I was disgusted by the muddy sound. For 300 dollars, there are so many better options than this trash. Cheap plastic is used and the ANC is terrible. On a positive note, these look really cool and are comfortable.
Pros: Looks nice, comfortable
Cons: Sounds muddy, active noise cancelling sucks, cheap plastic, OVERPRICED
