An icon remastered
Completely redesigned, the Beats Studio over-ear headphones are even lighter, stronger, and 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. Thanks to Beats' 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 neighbors 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.

Great sound, bad lifestyle.
First off, I love the sound of these guys. I zone out everything around me and can focus well.
I'm really unhappy with the way First off, I love the sound of these guys. I zone out everything around me and can focus well.
I'm really unhappy with the way they function otherwise.
(1) The control on the headphone only responds to play/pause, not volume on my iPhone 6 and iPad Air.
(2) If you pack-up headphones with the audio cable plugged in, battery life will drain regardless if they're being used or not.
(3) They will not function if battery is dead, with or without noise-cancellation.
Looking forward to coming changes in future Beats products as I feel Apple (who now owns Beats) acknowledges these types of small, but important features in the overall lifestyle uses of a product, and not only a single focus. …

These headphones are great. I had a lot of skepticism before getting them from all the rumors about beats being junk and not worth These headphones are great. I had a lot of skepticism before getting them from all the rumors about beats being junk and not worth the money. Those rumors aren't true. They look great, constantly get compliments on how they look (I got the matte black). The sound is great regardless of what music you're listening to. The noise canceling works perfectly, this part was the biggest for me especially being a college student the noise canceling makes studying a million times easier. I highly recommend these. I tried lots of headphones, sony, bose, the list goes on. I'm glad I chose these and highly recommend. The recharging feature over batteries is also huge! Great. …
