Summary: I never thought I would use Beats headphones, however when searching for a noise canceling bluetooth headphone which was light enough to wear comfortably while traveling, there were not many options. After reading a few positive reviews of the new studios, I decided to take a chance with the wireless version. I am glad I did. They are quite impressive for their intended usage. While using various forms of public transit and in the air, these are great headphones.
Pros: Portability, on-the-go usage, not too intrusive NC, reasonable sound quality
Summary: For the first time I'm actually digging Beats. I've owned and tried different audiophile headphones. Sony MA900, Audio Technica AD900x/AD700x, V-Moda Crossfade M-100 and Sennheiser PC360 are some that come to mind. I feel comfortable saying that I have a fair idea of what the hi-fi standard is.
Beats are often criticized here due to their bad value and the fact that they're often labeled as the "best" headphones in the minds of ignorant consumers.
Pros: Comfortable, Build Quality, Bluetooth Wireless, Convenient
Summary: I bought these after reading a good review of the new Solo2 phones, and while they (the wireless studios) aren't in the same Leage of sound quality as my LCD2 and Burson combo I'm surprised at how much I am enjoying listening to them. The wireless is so convenient and they are comfortable for extended use. I walked my dog for a while this afternoon and now after being home for an hour or so I still have them on.
Summary: I know what I like. That is clear, precise, and powerful sound reproduction. These Beats are clear and powerful, and pretty precise. I am testing with a Samsung Galaxy S5, and Spotify with "Extreme Quality" tracks. The bottleneck is the bitrate of the tracks.
Sound- Lows are low, and not nearly as muddy and overbearing as before! Mids are more present than ever in Beats. Highs are a tad too "Crispy", but not a big deal.
Pros: Sound Signature, APTx, Noise Cancellation, Bluetooth, Battery Life, Music Control
Cons: Padding is a little thin, Cannot turn Noise Cancellation off
