Since parting ways with Monster, Beats has been releasing new, improved versions of their classic headphones, and this time the Studio Wireless is getting the makeover treatment. But though it retains the signature Beats sound, it also still retains the signature Beats price.

While still largely the same, Digital Trends says the new refined Studio Wireless is "sleeker" and CNET praises their "more compact form factor." The over-ear cups continue to be rather big, but the upside is that ChipChick says they're "extremely comfortable." But the most important thing about the Studio Wireless is what they sound like, and the good news is that they still sound like Beats. PC Mag is happy with their "powerful audio performance," despite its "intense bass and high-mid boosting."

The Beats Studio Wireless headphones aren't made for audiophiles, but that isn't automatically a bad thing. They're foldable, comfortable and deliver a fairly aggressive sound stage, which makes them ideal for fans of hip-hop, EDM and other bass-heavy genres. If only they were $100 cheaper.

While it'll cost you a hefty $380, the Beats Studio Wireless is an excellent wireless Bluetooth headphone.

The new Beats Studio Wireless is an excellent pair of wireless headphones. So much so, you might just want to skip getting the Beats Studio and go straight for the Beats Studio Wireless instead.

The wireless Beats by Dre Studio 2014 are what I thought they would be. They’re an upgrade to a pair of headphones known for their bass and live performance type of sound.

The Beats are an above-par headset with an incongruent price tag that should make customers understandably leery. But if you're about style and intensity over audio purity, the Beats Wireless Studio Headphones could be a must-own travel companion.

$380 seems a little steep for what you get out of the Studio Wireless, but we’re pleased to see Beats head in a positive direction with its re-design.
