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.
