    Earpads pulling apart

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Sounds great, much better in all ways than the original. However. After six months, the earpads have been coming apart at the seams. Beats Support tells me you can't get new earpads, you need a whole new unit. They'll be happy to replace my Beats, but it will involve me shipping my current unit to them and then waiting for the replacement to be sent to me. It'll take a month of turnaround. All for an earpad whose seam should never come part to begin with.

    Better than before!

    Maybe like many people who bought the Beats Studio, I was amazed by the very stylish look of it. My first pair of headphone was the old Beats Studio, and at that time and still now, it's one of the most stylish headphones on the market!

    That's been said. As for the sound quality, my first impression of the old and new beats is the same: They do NOT worth the money for the sound. The lows are very impressive, but the mids and highs are not very good.

    This new beats has definitely improved over the old ones. It can pick out all the major details (NOT ALL) as it claims but then boost the sound of every detail up so you can hear it "clearly". The result is a big chaos in music, no layers, no depth, unnatural and harsh on the eardrums.

    So, I would say, Beats Studios are for those who like heavy bass music and influenced by its heavy marketing. Otherwise I would highly recommend the Sennheiser Momentum which has a far better sound quality but lacks of bass (By the way, it's German!).
