Engadget Summary

Following in the footsteps of the original Beats Studio headphones, the sound profile of the new Beats Electronics Studio headphone set isn't for everyone, but a slew of overall improvements still make it a very attractive option. Beats Electronics decided to improve the comfort of the new Studio set by going with foam ear cups, and Pocket-Lint says they're "soft, squiggly, and sit like giant marshmallows on the ears." The Studio headphones are geared towards more fun, casual music listening, offering what CNET calls "much improved overall clarity." While they may not deliver the same level of noise cancellation as the QuietComfort 15, they're still "good" at keeping outside noises out, according to TrustedReviews. Their price and sound profile don't make them an easy recommendation, but for those music lovers who just need a pair of fun headphones with noise-cancelling ability and aren't too sensitive about price, the new Studio headphone set just might fit the bill.
