Completely redesigned, the Beats Studio over-ear headphones are even lighter, stronger, more comfortable and more precise than the original world-famous design. They deliver powerful, re-engineered sound alone with Adaptive Noise Canceling, a 20-hour rechargeable battery and remote talk controls.
Feel your music
The Beats Acoustic Engine gives you an intimate, real encounter with your music, while the signature DSP software delivers the exact emotional experience that Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine and some of the music industry's greatest rock, hip-hop, pop, electronic and R&B producers want you to feel.
Put the world on mute
Silence the noise from your daily commute or the drama from your loud neighbours with Beats' no-compromise dual-mode Adaptive Noise Canceling (ANC). When you're listening to music, ANC automatically strikes a balance between your audio and the world outside. And if you want to use the headphone just to cancel external noise, ANC-only mode automatically increases the level of noise cancellation to make things even quieter.
A 20-hour rechargeable battery makes sure your vibe keeps going. To prevent wasting energy, the auto on/off feature turns off when you unplug, and the visible Battery Fuel Gauge lets you see at a glance how much juice is available. Plus, you can charge the new Studio via standard micro USB adapter almost anywhere.
Lighter, stronger and more comfortable
When Beats re-imagined these legendary headphones, they designed it like a beautiful sports car and made disciplined choices. They streamlined the new Beats Studio with fast curves, smooth surfaces and no visible screws. It now weighs 13 percent less than the original and has a lighter, stronger and more comfortable headband. The ear cups are softer and there's an ergonomic bellow to create a flexible, custom fit for every head shape, so you can keep your music all to yourself.

They're clear and concise, sound clarity. They're not bass heavy which is nice and they a very comfortable. I love these Beats and I use them all the time. The best thing is that Apple Inc acquired them earlier this year. Thank you Beats for making great headphones. Huge improvement over version 1.0 which was too much in the bass dept for my taste and I used to be a professional DJ! If you purchase these headphones you won't regret it, I promise. Cheers …

The sound is crystal clear, i don't hear anything else other than the music, and the bass is amazing. I had goth the red and black ones and the design is definitely dope. However with all that being said i still don't think they're $300 dollar quality headphones but then again what is? Anyways the headphones are amazing in every way but the durability is about average however so you really need to be careful with how you handle them. Do that and you'll enjoy them. …

Heavy and not fit to bigger than average ears.
Gorgeous headphones and the noise cancelation feature is absolutely awesome! However, they do feel somewhat heavy. And if you have Gorgeous headphones and the noise cancelation feature is absolutely awesome! However, they do feel somewhat heavy. And if you have bigger than average ears, you must make sure you adjust them well inside the cushions (adjusting ears... I know, right), otherwise the noise comes in. Also, because of this, they don't feel very comfortable after awhile.
Now that beats was acquired by Apple, I'm just hoping they do what they did with their in-ear headphones (the ones that came with the iPhone 5 and later), but with the beats.
I know the 1 star rating seems too low, maybe harsh, but for a premium price, I really expect a premium product. And for an Apple owned product, well, I wouldn't expect less.
Also, the Gold version looks stunning with an iPhone 6 Gold!
I'm trying to keep away from the Samsung Level (those will fit even the elves from lord of the rings), and aren't bigger than these, but they do feel heavier. …

Do these headphones truly cancel out noise from external sources ?
- Asked by Gail F from Union Pier
I tested these out in the apple store without realizing that they had the noise canceling technology I tested these out in the apple store without realizing that they had the noise canceling technology. I was pleasantly surprised when I put them on because the background music that was playing in the store magically faded away. I didn't have any music playing in the headphones yet, and they were still able to block out the background noise of the busy apple store. I would say that these headphones have an impressive noise canceling technology that would suite your needs well. …
