Beats by Dr. Dre Studio Over-Ear Headphones
The original Beats by Dr. Dre that took the world by storm.
After 25 years, Dr. Dre was tired of spending months on a track only to have his fans hear it on weak, distorting earbuds. Two years and hundreds of prototypes later, Beats Studio headphones are the icons that bring you sound the way it was originally intended.
Beats Studio headphones deliver professional-grade sound for professionals and audiophiles alike. They're tuned for all genres of music and made for relentless, heavy-duty use. The Beats Studio headphone is the iconic flagship product for Beats by Dr. Dre. The active noise cancellation feature gives Studio headphones a unique level of power and performance.
Powerful enough to block out a jet engine.
Powered by a pair of AAA batteries, the noise cancellation feature in a pair of Beats Studio headphones amplifies the music as it blocks out noise, giving you consistently powerful and intense sound.

Extra comfortable earcups.
Super plush and covered with ultra-soft breathable materials, you'll be cool and comfortable even during marathon listening sessions. The Beats by Dr. Dre logo on the side also acts as a mute button when you press it. No need to take them off to talk.
A flawless and iconic fit.
Designers of Beats Studio headphones conducted a series of ergonomic studies to find the perfect lightweight, foldable headphone that always delivers a comfortable fit. The result is a design now copied by brands around the world.
Take calls, skip songs and adjust volume right from the cord of your Beats Studio headphones. No more searching for your phone or music player just to find the right song.

I can say, that the title of the review pretty much sums it up for me. I wouldn't call myself a high level Audiophile, but I do take my audio listening quality a bit more seriously, but not the extreme levels some do.
I put the Beats through my Asus Xonar sound card, which is capable of very good quality audio definition, as well as tonal seperation..this takes no prisoners are far as accoustics are concerned, you do notice a big difference from the cheaper nasty offerings to genuine higher quality headphones/speakers. I would add I've used a few of the more expensive Sennheiser's and a few other makers with higher end offerings.
I'll sum things up quickly
+ Build is ok, better but certainly not £250's worth in my view. They feel sturdy enough but the plastics don't feel high end (bit cheap) and the ear cups don't have the same level of quality I would expect at this price (not sure how they would hold up)
+ I found them pretty comfy overall not too heavy well balance and felt decent on the "ears"
+ Noise cancelling works well, not the absolute best I've used but respectable, built in battery to charge which is probably more convenient for some
- Over aggressive bass response, even dropping the EQ down the bass is overly emphasised
- Harsh upper mid and high end
- Mediocre tonal response/seperation not suited to general music listening
I listen to quite a large variety of music from pop, heavy metal, rock, 80's, soul, classical, funk you name it.Read more ›
Mine have 2 problems, the first being that one of the battery terminals doesn't marry with the battery properly and causes the headphones to stop working intermittently and secondly my girlfried could hear what tracks I was playing down in the kitchen as I listened up in the bedroom ! As I purchases these to use while out and about and travelling on planes etc I don't think they will suitable. The build quality leaves a little to be desired too, with the plastic left circular plate with the "b" on it is difficult to get on and off to insert the batteries.
However, I have to say these are very stylish looking headphone that the teenagers and trendy people like. I do admire Beats for making headphones a desired headphone, a fashion statement and accessory. They are advertised extremely well, with strong endorsements and products placement everywhere. However, being a headphone, it's primary function should be it's audio performance.
Sound quality wise, they are certainly better than the stock Apple white earbuds. However you are comparing to a £1 headphone. Not really a fair comparison. When you are comparing to professional studio headphones in this price range of the Beats Studio, it's a losing battle. The Beats Studio is by no mean an awful headphones, however professional headphones such as the Denon D2000, Audio Technica M50, Beyerdynamic DT 770, AKG K550 etc, these Beats just don't match up acoustically. A studio musician would never use a headphone with active noise cancelling built in, because this lowers the resolution and colours the sound. These are all substantially higher resolution and detailed compared to the Beats, with better instrument separation, soundstage and neutrality. A trendy alternative for the Beats Studio is the Denon D400 headphones, which has a built in amp and arguably more fashionable and attention grabbing. The D1100 headphone which can be know bought for less than £70 is another superior headphone in term of sound quality, with a better bass response, bigger soundstage richer mids and clearer highs.Read more ›
