    2.0 out of 5 stars "Hear the music as recorded". Hardly! 24 Mar 2012
    Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
    These headphones remind me of Apple products - I reckon about 50 of the cost is the packaging. Which is a nice "surprise and delight" moment when you receive the product but actually when you analyse it why would you want your money spent this way? There's a lavish headphone case with a cabina - mine lasted 3 days before the poorly stitched hook the cabena attaches to tore away. Then there's the rather thick booklet. Looks nice. But open it up and you actually get every singe language in the world with just a couple of pages of informtion. Information so generic (to the whole range) that it's incomplete (no explanation of the fact you get two different leads in the box, one presumably needed if you want to talk).

    The headphones themselves look cool, and are clearly designed for kids who believe hype and have more money than sense. OK, maybe that's a bit harsh. The headphones are stylish and generally well put together. But their whole raison d'etre is a quote from Dr Dre about people not hearing the music that was recorded. Buy these headphones and you're definitely not going to hear the music that was recorded. Bass, bass, bass. I guess if you're into bass-thudding hip-hop you may think the sound resembles what was intended. For other music genres forget it. The over-the-top bass is particularly noticeable on spoken word podcasts - which quite frankly sound terrible on these headphones.

    Given that these are very expensive headphones marketed to iPhone and iPad users you'd think a better job could have been done of shielding the headphones from the noise a phone can make when electronic devices get near it. No, what you get here is constant irritating cross-interference.

    1.0 out of 5 stars One Problem, Two Cups 22 Nov 2012
    Colour Name:Black
    I've had many many pairs of headphones; closed cup/open cup, with/without noise cancelling, and most brands out there. Beats Studio are easily the worst for sound quality.

    The good points first: I actually like the look. They're a bit ostentatious but they feel like good quality hardware, solid and plush. The box presentation is nice. Also I love the design of the cable jack - it is at a flat right angle so it sits flush against whatever you plug it into. This means there aren't any awkward angles to snag the jack on in your pocket or wherever. It's about time other brands caught on. I'm looking at you, Bose.

    But all that is secondary. You buy headphones for the sound and the sound of these things is just appalling. The most important point I want to make is this: powerful bass is not the same thing as good quality bass. The Beats Studio have powerful bass, but it is muddy and unrestrained, the opposite of the crisp notes than come out of a bass guitar. It's like a pair of blown speakers strapped to your head. And because the bass is so powerful it overwhelms every other element of the music. The mids are acceptable, but you can't hear them. The highs are below average quality for a price tag like that, but don't let that bother you because they're totally obscured by the bass. You can't hear any detail at either end.

    Aside from the sound quality, they leak noise like crazy. These things are closed cup, active noise cancelling so you shouldn't be able to hear anything if someone else is wearing them, but you can hear every note. Also I wore mine on a flight and the noise cancelling didn't block out any sound at all.

    Mine sounded so bad I was worried I'd bought a fake pair, so I took them back to the shop and they replaced them with a brand new pair.

    3.0 out of 5 stars More fashion than audio performance 25 Dec 2012
    Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
    If these Beats Studio is advertised for studio use, then it's a joke. It leaks lots of sound that will be bleed into microphones, its sound is not detailed enough for professional mixing, and it's bass is too muddy and exaggerated making these a bad reference.

    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.
