Rated 4 out of 5 by Cameron99 A great Avg Consumer headphone.
If you like Heavy bass, and that crystal clears treble, and wanna look good while doing it, these are right for you. They are light, comfy, and sounds amazing. A few things, although they sound good, you can buy better sounding headphones, if you are a musichead, for the same price. But you cannot buy the great sounding and AMAZING stylish headphones that these are.
I recommend these to anyone looking for a nice looking, overall good sounding, comfortable, lightweight, durable, and quite good sound cancelling headphone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mastekent1 Finally, the legendary studios' revival to the game.
I upgraded from the Mixrs since they were awesome but hurt alot. I got the new Studios mark II and they were awesome. The sound quality was balanced almost comparable to other popular brands ie. Beyerdynamics, shure, sennheiser etc. and offered balance between the sound spectrum. Also, the comfort was awesome but got sweaty during the summer. I wish the studios had less plastic since i fear that they might break after a little while, and they are also a fingerprint magnet. Also, when i accidentally dropped them, it started to show some silver streaks like it was scratched.

Rated 4 out of 5 by thee_gsauce Great sound but i'm OCD
This Headphone overall is amazing, the bass is tight and punchy it looks amazing, and you can where them for hours. It has what nobody talks about which is Instrument distinction where you can separate each sound or instrument and it's not just a big blob of mushed up sound. This Headphone does an excellent job of separating instruments. Now my one problem with mine is that when i fold the right side down it sounds like its breaking and cracking, but the left is almost silent. This bothers me a lot for some reason. I would just buy new titanium ones so i wouldn't have to worry about the sound of breaking them but I don't have the money for that. But I am so impressed with the sound huge improvement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jamezzz Design is flawless and solid!
I purchased the white version of the studios however I do not know how to clean the leather earcups because a faint black color (dirt) is starting to cover the white. Please help! But overall great product! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hiiibrid I like em (:
This are really a an improvement from the last pair of beats headphones. They very comfortable,they sound great, but the only problem is is that the mute button kinda came off when you press it.... But there a worthy buy and it might just be mine

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ben18 Much needed update...
I never owned the original studios, but I did always borrow my brothers. I was blown away by the bass, it sounded and felt like there was a sub-woofer hugging each of my ears, because I could literally feel the bass! However they had several drawbacks, the sound leakage, bulky looking style, annoying power switch, etc. However when I opened these on Christmas day and plugged them in I was actually disappointed. At first they had no bass at all, it seemed like just an acoustic headphone which I could expect the same quality from my Sennheiser HD20s. However I burned them in by playing numerous frequency sweeps on replay and listened to music regularly, and after almost 4 days of non stop playing (other than to charge the built in battery) I got the quality I wanted! These Studios have incredible clarity and acoustics, the guitar coming from The Beatles or Three Days Grace was so warming it put a smile on my face, and yet I could still listen to Mac Miller or Eminem and get the spot on bass which provided a nice "kick" to my ears. While these are incredible headphones and are actually worth the $300 price tag (for once) I still feel like the bass was toned down a bit much in my opinion. I am a bass-head at heart and still love to listen to songs like "Im A Real 1" by YG and have my head rattle. All in all, and amazingly stylish and wonderfully sounding headphone for a high price tag, that will well be worth it after you burn them in :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Raider306 Great Sound, but overpriced
These headphones sound amazing. However, if you wear them for too long then they begin to hurt your ears. I'm not sure if others have had this problem. Also, the beats logo on the audio cord with the mic popped off. For headphones with this price tag, i was expecting better durability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MiddleSchoolTeacher Improved Comfort and Range
I am not an audiophile. I am just an average consumer, a teacher (I love using Beats in a coffee shop or even at work when I'm grading or lesson planning for long periods of time), and I also use my beats when I play video games.
Ok, moving on. I have been using the original Beats Studios for a while now, but I've got a problem. I have a big head (size 8 New Era, for reference). The original Studios press tightly against the side of my head to the point that I get a headache if I wear them for more than a few minutes. I decided to get the new Studios because I have heard that the comfort is much improved with them. In only 24 hours, however, I've debated returning them. Here's why:
I used the Studios for about an hour right out of the box, as the fuel gauge indicated the battery was full. I got out my old studios and conducted about an hour's worth of sound comparisons just to see if I could notice a difference in the range, the sound quality improvements about which I have read so much, etc. I used a few different songs - bass-driven rap, indie (specifically for the twangy guitar highs), and a song by a quartet of singers with an ukulele. Within these parameters, I was able to get a good feel for the sound of the new Studios alongside the originals.
The improved comfort stood out right away, which was great for my big head. I can wear them without getting a headache. The sound of the vocals in the songs, however, slightly annoyed me. In the new Studios, the vocals sound like they are coming through a tin hallway. I'm not talking about reverb here, but more along the lines of a compressed or filtered effect that I would use on my guitar. On the upside, I feel like I am standing right next to the singer, if that makes sense. I've read that this is the experience for which Beats are made, anyway, so perhaps they did a great job here. The bass has a nice boom to it without overpowering the rest of the music. I do feel that some of the background sounds (such as guitar and synth sections in the indie song) slightly disappeared in the new Studios when compared to my old ones (I had both pairs on and kept switching the cable between the two for an immediate comparison, mind you).
If the new Studios were my first pair of Beats, I'd probably be blown away. Even without the cable plugged in, you can turn on the "white noise" noise cancellation feature. I tried this next to my old, buzzing refrigerator and the Studios delivered enough noise cancellation to block it out. Talk about real-world application.
Unfortunately, the very next morning (literally twelve hours after I purchased them on the day prior) when I decided to use my new Studios again, they would not turn on. I tried charging them, holding the fuel gauge to turn on the ANC, and charged them from multiple outlets around my house just to be sure. No luck. So I packed them all back in the fancy packaging, got out my receipt and was just about out the door to return them when I looked online to see if anyone else had a similar issue - that is, brand new Beats Studios not working less than twenty-four hours after using them for the first time.
Luckily, I found the Beats page with directions for resetting the Studios. I figured I might be able to save myself a drive and having to wait in line for customer service, so I unpackaged the Beats (again) and held the fuel gauge button down for ten seconds. When I released the button, the LEDs lit up white, and then one flashed red, and they were back in action.
I've been listening to them for the entirety of this, my first ever online review of a product, comfortably and loudly! I could not have gotten any closer to returning the new Beats Studios, but I am (I think) glad I am keeping them for now. I still have fourteen days to decide whether to keep them.
Overall, the sound of the new Studios compared to the old is different - I don't know whether I prefer it or not. More importantly, the ear cups and overall comfort are improved, and that alone is a reason for me to keep the new Studios over my old ones. Again, I am just a normal consumer. I play guitar, so I am used to dialing in highs, mids, and lows on ridiculously expensive guitar equipment, so I know what I like. However, I am not an audiophile. I just like having a nice set of noise-cancelling headphones.
