Beats Studio3 Wireless review

 

When you've got a good thing going, why rock the boat?

The Beats Studio3 Wireless offers improved sound quality, noise canceling and battery life from its predecessor in the same sturdy design. Apple's W1 chip makes pairing with Apple devices dead simple. Performs well as a headset for making cell-phone...

Design is the same as previous model's. Does not fold flat and carrying case is somewhat bulky.

Beats has taken a very good wireless noise-canceling headphone and significantly increased its performance.

Beats Studio3 Wireless review: Eliminating the noise

 

Beats, the Apple-owned lineup of audio hardware, has produced what might be their finest headphones to date. The Studio3 Wireless are (as you may have guessed by now) wireless, have noice cancellation and the Beats styling and sound profile many have...

Pure ANC cleans up noises very well ; W1 made pairing experience easy for iOS users ; Fast-charging

Short battery life with Pure ANC enabled ; Still uses Micro-USB

Two years ago, the argument for and against Beats was cultural. It was more status symbol than really solid headphone. Athletes, celebrities and neighborhood show-offs draped them around their necks like jewelry. To many, the sound they produced paled...

Beats Studio 3 Wireless review: great for Apple users, mediocre for everyone else

 

The Beats Studio 3 are the most prominent example to date of a pair of headphones that is dependent on the ecosystem it's in to perform at its best.

Satisfying bass thump ; Collapsible design ; Comfortable, cozy pads ; Flawless operation with Apple devices

Battery life and Bluetooth suffer when not connected to Apple devices ; Sound lacks refinement, vocals lack fullness ; Competitors in same price bracket have more premium build ; MicroUSB is an anachronism, especially in Apple ecosystem

If you happen to use an Android phone or a bunch of Windows PCs, the proposition becomes much trickier. Beats wins on practically none of the major parameters of comfort, design, or performance. It’s decent in all, but without the W1 augmentation, it’s...

Beats Studio3 Wireless review: Easy setup, exceptional battery life, and superb noise cancellation

 

Despite having purchased Beats By Dre in 2014, Apple had yet to truly integrate the two company's technology with one another. For the most part, it felt like Beats By Dre was still operating as a standalone company. With the launch of the W1 chip...

Battery life is superb ; Adaptive Noise Cancellation is best I've used ; Comfortable, even after long periods of listening

Price is in line with comparable headphones, but still steep

Beats Studio3 Wireless

 

The Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones combine quality Bluetooth audio and above-average noise cancellation.

Rich, crisp sound signature with a focus on high-mid definition. Wireless audio and active noise cancellation. NC can be disabled to save battery life. Apple W1 chip makes pairing with iOS devices even more simple.

Expensive. No passive listening mode. Adaptive aspect of NC is not impressive.

The Beats Studio3 Wireless is a solid, balanced pair of headphones that will likely please those looking for more balance and clarity than anything else. The noise cancellation is better than average, and the easy pairing with iOS gear is a nice plus....

Beats Studio3 Wireless review: Can my mind be changed?

 

There are a lot of assumptions and preconceived notions when it comes to Beats headphones. This is the first time I've used Beats since the Monster days. Can the Beats Studio3 Wireless change my old opinions? Find out inside!

Clean subtle design ; Not the sound of the Beats of old ; Comfortable ; Solid build quality ; ANC works well ; Nice hard shell case included ; W1 chip and iOS integration is seamless ; Bluetooth reception is stellar

Sound leans heavier to the bass side may not be for everyone ; Clamping pressure is tight, may not set well with some ; Would have like to seen USB-C for charging ; Fingerprint magnet accents

Alright. The new Beats are nothing like the old Beats, that’s for certain. I actually enjoyed all types of music with these headphones and I could even tolerate the bassy soundstage. Apple has really put some thought into tuning these headphones with...

Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones Review: Big Bass, Minor Bugs

 

At $279, the Beats Studio3 Wireless are certainly a capable pair of headphones. They performed fairly well during my testing, particularly when listening to hip-hop or EDM. I also appreciated the comfortable fit, 20 hours of battery life,...

Comfortable Fit ; Quick Charging tops up battery in 10 minutes for 3 hours of listening ; Stabile connection over large area ; Solid bass performance for bass heavy tracks ; Offer extra volume over other headphones

Known pairing issues with Samsung S7 ; Lack of audible notifications for pairing mode and power toggle ; Expensive

Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones offer a comfortable fit, decent active noise cancellation and clean, though a sometimes overly processed, sound profile.

Beats Studio3 Review

 

Only worth the price if you like the design style

Good sound quality

Expensive, not super comfortable

The is a good pair of headphones, but it does not live up to its high end pedigree. If you're looking for the best headphones, we would suggest the .

Review: Beats Studio3 Wireless offers noise cancellation & Apple's W1, at a premium price

 

The Beats Studio3 Wireless is Apple's answer to high-end noise-cancelling headphones from the likes of Bose and Sony. While they're a solid product, it's debatable as to whether they're worth a premium over other Beats models.

Should you get the Studio3? It doesn't sound much better than even the Solo2 Wireless, and costs $50 more than the Solo3, which is a tough sell when Bose's QuietComfort 35 headphones are available for $329. Sony's MDR-1000X costs about as much as the...

Beats Studio 3 bring premium noise canceling and battery life at a premium price

 

Beats had a handful of different sounds on hand to test the Studio 3 ahead of launch. The demo was designed to showcase the range of the headphones' new adaptive noise-canceling technology — but there's only so much you can get from a demo in that kind...
