Button

Button:
"BUT, the buttons are kind of confusing."
_
"In 10 minutes you have to leave so you have a few minutes free making this a good moment to listen to a track or two, so you switch on the headphones, checking the phone that serves as your audio source to see if it's connected, see it's not, try pressing 'b' on the headphones, check the source again, go into bluetooth settings, try poking them here and there, hold 'b' down again, longer this time, and eventually you decide to get the audio source to forget the connection and wait for the headphones to be discovered again and after a few attempts holding the 'b' button down for different lengths of time, trying to re-pair each time, until suddenly you find everything says it's connected and you can't see any reason for there being no sound, and yet there is no sound, and so you switch the headphones off and on and suddenly they work and it's awesome but everyone is looking at you funny as you were radiating sound from the main speakers but you didn't realise, and you've only got 30 seconds left from your 10 minutes so you take off the headphones and get them folded and packed and zippered away in time to leave for your appointment wondering which of the many steps you tried was actually the one that made it all work and whether they'll work next time you have a spare 10 minutes and you set off in your car but it doesn't give you navigation instructions because in the process of getting the headphones to work you broke the pairing between your phone and your car."
_
"So that said, here's what I'd like to see in the 2015 (v3.0) edition:* Automatic power on off when folding the headphones (simple switch sensors)* Automatic pause when removing headphones from your ears head (proximity pressure sensor)* Better support for audio media controls on MacOS (Apple's problem now)* A better way to access previous next tracks (is it too much to ask for another two hidden buttons on the earpiece?"
_
"There are hidden buttons above and below the Beats logo, for raising and lowering volume."
_
"I also hated how they did the controls on these headphones, its extremely annoying when the middle button doesn't do what you want it to."
_
"The battery indicator is nice, and the play pause buttons and the up and down volume buttons are great too."
_
"- Incredible acoustics - Deep smoothe Bass - Bluetooth and wired option - Very easy to learn the buttons and operation of the headset."
_
"- Discrete on off button and battery indicator- Comes with a nice carrying case, charger, and multiple cords to plug into your phone if you don't want to use BluetoothAnd of course, these are the best looking pair of over-ear Bluetooth headphones available right now."
_
"If your connecting this to just one device and leaving it that way you'll be just fine, the first pairing is very easy.>Buttons could use some tactile feedback."

Cable

Cable:
"You have the option to connect with a cord for longer usage but once they are dead, you will have to recharge them."
_
"Pros: Well built, great wireless performance, great battery life, comes with lots of cable (Yes they are wireless)Cons: Mediocre overall soundConclusion: One day a decent pair of wireless headphones for half the price will be released."

_
"the ease of movement with no cable is amazing; i never have any issues syncing with bluetooth (but i also work on bluetooth for a living) and these things literally THUMP they sound good."
_
"I am so spoiled by the BT that I find using a cord to be a tangling, snagging hassle."
_
"Easy to use .Comes with wired cord in case the battery every goes dead ."
_
"I love that I can wear them without the cord and move about my business without any issues."
_
"Positives+ Snug Fit+ Good Frequency Range+ Compact storage with the ability to fold+ They look goodMiddle of the road+- Wireless, no cables but does require charging+- Noise cancellation, it reduces the outside noise, but hurts music quality by pumping out a frequency+- Rubber skin contact, most headphones use this but there are some with more comfortable cloth optionsNegatives- Sound quality, the bass was overbearing, muddy and sound clarity was horridAll of the convenience features were great, the headphones are easy to store, comfortable and there are no cables to get in your way while working."
_
"Pros: Well built, great wireless performance, great battery life, comes with lots of cable (Yes they are wireless)Cons: Mediocre overall soundConclusion: One day a decent pair of wireless headphones for half the price will be released."

"To compare, I have the Denon AH-GC20 (great sound and comfort, terrible ANC)."
_
"It didn't mention in the description that one side was way tighter on one side than the other and that makes me pretty mad thatI got the head phones, it didn't mention in the description that one side was way tighter on one side than the other that I payed 184 dollars expecting a very comfortable pair of headphones and they end up being hard to use more than 30 minutes."

Cushion

Cushion:
"The downside to the soft cushions is that they give enough so that my ears touched the inside of the headphone covering the speaker."
_
"They are a bit snug but the very soft cushions keep the tightness from being uncomfortable."

Design

Design:
"The design (from what I feel is a misplaced sense of minimalism) reduces the functions to single, double and triple clicks of the same button for different things."
_
"The product has a beautiful design, as we all are aware...The disappointing aspect of this was,when received I couldn't wear the headphones for longer than 30 minutes without pain in both ears."
_
"The design of the headphones makes it hard to accidentally turn them on in a bag or their case, which is good - I've had a couple of pairs that suffered from this in the past (Bose and Nokia)."
_
"12 30 day one lol came very well packaged and secured no damage in shippingBeen hearing about the box design and its very well made as well like ive read and heard update coming soon"
_
"Sleek design."

Heavy

Heavy:
"However these headphones are not meant for long hour usage and are very uncomfortable and heavy."
_
"Plus they're heavy as hell, horrible to wear longer than 4+ hours."
_
"The sound quality is really bad and not accurate, the sound is more like a humble heavy bass but very lack of balance mid and high tone."
_
"Great sound, the headphones are a little tight and heavy on the ears which makes them a little uncomfortable after an hour or so."
_
"I do have a few complaints, they are very bass heavy, I've heard they are but had never tried a pair until this."
_
"Contrary to popular belief no noise cancelling headphones and totally block out something as loud as a plane engine, but these do block out noise and do it wellHighs Mids and Lows, in the past a lot of people complained that beats were too bass heavy, and depending on your taste in music that may have been true."
_
"Once open they feel a bit heavy but sound wise i do not have much complaint."

"Fairly good sound (bass heavy as we all know Beats are)."
_
"Heavy on the bass, but still clear on the high end."

Level

Level:
"I would not recommend if you like your music at a high level! "
_
"When switching back and forth between my old Studio and the 2.0, I couldn't even notice the first gen hiss in my kitchen (probably not a quiet enough environment), but I could totally notice the hiss in 2.0.In addition to the unacceptable hiss level, I can't approve of the direction that Beats has gone with the tone in the new generation."
_
"The headphones is primarily made up of plastic which is disappointing at this price point but materials choices didn't ruin the comfort levels or the durability levels."
_
"I had to crank up the volume to uncomfortable levels to get the jet engine noise abated to the levels Bose was delivering."
_
"Works ok as a phone headset, although the noise cancellation is so good that it's hard to work out the right level to speak at (without unexpectedly shouting!"
_
"Bought both the Sony MDRXB950BT and the Samsung Level Over with this guy, I was in the quest for the best wireless headphones and ended up keeping the Beats Studio Wireless as the sound is much louder than the other two plus if you want more bass, this is better."
_
"With the Bose, I always felt like there was something missing with the lows, and Beats really did a good job bringing down the low levels and balancing them out."
_
"- Leak very little sound at higher than reasonable volumes: People on airplanes won't want to kill you if you keep the sound at a decent level- Long battery life on-par with all other Bluetooth headphones in this price range- Music controls built into headphones- Crowd pleasing sound (read: LOTS of bass, vibrant highs, ok mids): I'm a big concert-goer, so the heavy lean towards boomy sound instead of pinpoint accuracy is very familiar to me."
_
"Quality at the best level"
_
"Aside from those issues, sound quality is quite good for general listening, and the ANC, while not up to Bose levels, does a great job of nixing commute noise (though has issues with higher frequency noises).The cans look great, fold down into a relatively compact space, and come with a hard carrying case."

Loud

Loud:
"Not as good as the wired, bass is very distorted and loud, but sound ok at a low to medium level!"
_
"Strangely they are not very loud or as good sound quality when using a wired connection, this is extremely disappointing."
_
"The bluetooth on these were not great either, there were many times where it would cut the song in and out for a couple minutesI was not a big fan of the sound either, they were too loud, and thats coming from someone who loves loud music, it just made my music sound horrible."
_
"There loud and great"
_
"Other than that I got to try them and the sounds it's good really good base and really loud."
_
"Loud bass with optimal accuracy is what I needed -- Beats Studio Wireless was able to provide that for me."

_
"My only complaint is the material on the inside of one headphone is coming apart."
_
"ConsColor - The material on the over the speakers can get dirty really easily if you are not careful."
_
"Superior sound and durable material"
_
"As for the cons, the material does feel like it could break easily, but as long as your careful with them and you don't have a history of breaking other expensive devices, their shouldn't be a problem."
_
"Very good over ear headphones i like them a lot and like the smoothness of the material and good colors , also came in a good state ."
_
"The headphones may be really comfortable but the build material doesn't qualify its price tag."

Microphone

Microphone:
"The only problem I have with them is the microphone is very, very, very sensitive at times I switch to handheld."
_
"Everything I know about sound leads me to believe that a caller on the other end of the line should not hear me as well as the in-line mic hanging below my chin on the Bose cord."
_
"The cons are the wireless mic is horrible."
_
"With the Beats Studios, I'm really happy to have a set of headphones with crowd pleasing sound (to a non-audiophile like me), rock solid Bluetooth, long battery life, and a better than decent built-in microphone that actually look good and turn heads."
_
"* In my quiet office, the microphone works well -- sounds great to my callers."
_
"When using the mic, it allows all noises into the headset as well."
_
"The mic is equally good and the other party I called to test was able to hear me loud and clear."

_
"I'm switching to Bose and here's why...These Beats have a terribly annoying hissing sound when there's no music or when the volume is low."

"Not the greatest for a person seeking bass on the music."
_
"You hear the little nuances you have been missing out on for years -- this is an investment to rediscover the music you love so much! "
_
"There are lots of music which I was missing earlier which I am able to enjoy now."
_
"Wen I was listening to music I couldn't even hear anything what everyone was saying with the music or no music so noise cancellation works well."
_
"Well, I am into music production and need to hear bass, treble, etc as clear as possible."
_
"So if you listen to Hip hop, rap, country ect youll see no diffrence between wired and wireless, though trance music youll be upset and wont enjoy the moment of trancing out."

"Finally I thought to try Beats Studio and they amazed producing quality music as well comfort....I strongly recommend who ever looking for a wireless headsets and expecting comfort quality music."

"Yes it is a fashion statement and yes it is expensive but consider all the expensive crap people buy like Louis bags or Gucci shoes and they are not the BEST product for performance in any facets but they know they are paying for the brand name."
_
"Good performance."
_
"Pros: Well built, great wireless performance, great battery life, comes with lots of cable (Yes they are wireless)Cons: Mediocre overall soundConclusion: One day a decent pair of wireless headphones for half the price will be released."
_
"I had heard these about beats headphones but I was surprised that their top-of-the-line product has such poor performance."
_
"My 10 year old Bose Quiet Comforts perform better than these in noise canceletion AND sound quality* The headset is uncomfortable after extended wear."
_
"If you want or need perfect ANR performance...go Bose."

Plastic

Plastic:
"Then you're left with a very expensive pile of plastic junk."
_
"Ear cups aren't deep enough, so your ears touch the hard plastic under all the pads; sometimes really uncomfortable."
_
"The aspect that I am worried about is the plastic coming off inside the ear cups."
_
"My biggest complaint is the construction, the plastic sliders on both sides have large cracks, and had to be taped to keep them from falling apart."
_
"The headphones is primarily made up of plastic which is disappointing at this price point but materials choices didn't ruin the comfort levels or the durability levels."
_
"When I say they broke, I mean the plastic on the headband above the left ear-cup SNAPPED while I was simply putting them on."
_
"You expect the product to be packaged well, from the headphones themselves to the wires in their little plastic sleeves."

Service

Service:
"2) the Apple buyout of Dre has degraded warranty service: Dre was also known for GREAT service as an independent company, no questions asked with real audiophiles answering the phone (sounded like the Dre studio geeks, to be honest) , you just sent in your old pair and got a new pair in a couple of days."
_
"The bottom line is I liked Dre for a year or so, but would not purchase again, because of the lack of durability (I've broken two pair in three years, not working out, just wearing them to store and stuff, taking them on and off) degraded warranty service (it's still professional, just not liberal replacement as before), and the fact that a pair of hard-wired Voda's sound much better and last much longer."
_
"But I am very disappointed by customer service and the way they constructed."
_
"I don't know what is wrong with the construction of these headphone, maybe my head is just too big (joke), but customer service really disappointed me :(So I had to glue it back and keep enjoying."
_
"Sound is till working, so Genius Bar (Apple support who is in charge now for Dre Beats) said they can't take it for service as this is physical damage."
_
"Great headphones while they work...but really horrible customer service if when you have an issue."
_
"Great marketing no customer service."

Size

Size:
"I would say that my head is probably above average in size but these phones were pretty uncomfortable after little time."

"the only drawback on these is the charging cable is very small and delicate and the controls are not not very user friendly, but I eventually got the hang of it."
_
"They get very warm with long listening (1.5+ hrs continuous listening) and my ears head would sweat.>Ear cups are slightly too small for my ears causing discomfort after long listening."
_
"The only complaint I really have about them is with the earcup size."

"Like a lot of headphones this size, they can become a tad uncomfortable after 2-3 hours of listening."
_
"The product itself is good but its a shame that I received my headphone in a smaller size."
_
"I would say that my head is probably above average in size but these phones were pretty uncomfortable after little time."
_
"For me, size, build quality, controls, comfort, and last but definitely not least sound quality must all be excellent."
_
"I even tried the SMS by 50 headphones (the ones with that small adapter), which actually sounded decent but was way too big for me to wear frequently in the gym."

Support

Support:
"Terrible customer support."
_
"My only concern is the battery charge must be at acceptable level even when the plug (not wireless) is being used.2nd day - I took out another star because Windows 7 doesn't have a driver for this nor was I able to find a driver in Beats support."
_
"- They do not support Aptx but they support AAC, which anyway unfortunately requires that you stream AAC files."
_
"Kind Regards,xxxBeats by Dr. Dre(tm) Support(I have hidden the real name of the Supporter for respect to the Privacy)Also the German Support of Beats wrote me on the 22th Dec that the Studio Wireless support Aptx."
_
"Volume + button did not work and after tweeting, calling, chatting and emailing, Beats support was a disappointment."
_
"It probably works great on a device that supports AptX, it doesn't on the iPhone."
_
"It is clear: the Beats Studio Wireless do NOT support Aptx!"
_
"I hope Beats gets some well needed guidance in providing better support and follow-up."
_
"There are competitors with 'smarter' headphones that turn on off when you fold them, pause play when you remove them from your head, and have enough buttons to support previous next track easily."
_
"Well, these headphones don't support bluetooth and they sound a little underwealming with recorded music...That's why I purchased my beats wireless headphones for work; I used them for months but they're only OK since they compressed the sound of my music a bit too much."
