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.

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.
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. I can say hands down the Beats are not premium sounding phones, but whilst the target buyer might enjoy bone shattering bass thumping headphones for some types of music, it's over the top and too much even for me (I like a strong bass but not always)
I spent some time trying to expand the seperation using the Xonar control panel, it proved quite difficult.
As I own a pair of Yamaha HPH-200's a comparison was on the cards. The phones have no noise cancelling, and are quite well priced.
Hands down the Yamaha's spanked the Beats in just about every accoustic area, surprising considering the big price difference. The HPH-200's have a warm rich, but balanced sound capable of delivering punchy bass when required, but subtle tones too. I can up mix to Dolby Headphones, pro logic IIx for that "live" sound. Bottom line is this combination is capable of delivering "in the studio sound" you might as well be standing in the recording studio.
The beats just don't deliver here, it's all bone crunching bass with uncomfortable unrefined upper treble that is just too raw for my ears even with boom the bass type sounds and music, there is no balance at all. Might work for DJ's but not for most music listeners
My advice is:
If you want a pair of "funky looking" cans, buy Skullcandy and their vibrant looking but affordable head phones
If you want a pair of really good sounding headphones buy a pair Sennheiser HD 558's
If you want a pair of good portable phones with noise cancellation get the Sennheiser PXC310
If you want a pair of phones that are compact enough to travel with and sound great whilst not costing a fortune get the Yamaha HPH-200's
Bottom line is unfortunately the price does not reflect the performance or audio quality. For £250 I expect to be blown away, not for a pair of £70 odd headphones to slap down a top line product like this.
I appreciate the "fashion aspect" for some, as above there are cheaper ways of looking "hip" if you require that. These cans don't sound bad sure they beat £20 phones, but then so do £50 phones. Certainly I wasn't overly impressed and I really wouldn't swap these for my Yamaha's. Ignore the hype and go with a product that sounds good, rather than looks cool.
The build quality appears to be very high, despite their plastic exterior, which may suggest otherwise. The leather on the headband and ear cups show no real signs of wear despite years of relatively heavy use. The cables remain intact, and have not fallen foul to the usual breakages one might expect from pulling headphones out of the 3.5mm port.
I do think that these particular headphones have been easily subject to criticism because of their mainstream, commercial popularity. For £179.99 (the price I paid), they easily stand their ground with similar priced rivals, and outperform the cheaper Bose SoundTrue headphones that I also own.
On to the downsides, the batteries needed for the noise-cancelling (and for the headphones to even power on) add weight to an already pretty heavy pair of 'phones, which in my experience has lead to 'fatigue' versus lighter alternatives. I'm not sure if these are open-backed, but the sound leakage is in the extreme. Even when listening to these at quarter/half volume, you can expect people in the same room to complain.
All in all, every time I wear these cans, I feel like I'm using a really premium, well-built product that are definitely worth their price tag.
