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 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
