Cheap quality product but good sound

Great headphones but very prone to breaking due to the cheap material. It's a shame but the Audio Technica M50x are a lot better. Show details

Great sound is only good when you can wear them

Great Sound, very comfortable, all of which become redundant when they break because they're made of cheap thin plastic.
Absolute rip off.
Don't expect to get 12 months out of these headphones. Show details

Buyer Beware Do Not Buy Beats Studio3

These headphone crack due to putting them onto my head. The cheap plastic is faulty and the design is flawed. 2 months Old

These headphones are a waster of money

This issue is a worldwide known fault with this particular beats headphone. They should be taken off the market and no longer sold with the knowledge apple has on these headphones.
Apple are refusing to refund. Poor customer service which is a call centre in the Phillipines
The uttermost care was taken with this headset and they were not dropped EVER
They were not accidentally damaged.
The fault is the cheap plastic which cannot be put on a head as it splits
Which really defeats the purpose of headphones Show details

Poorly engineered

I used my headphones to and from work on the train, and while sitting at my desk. Volume, sound and connectivity is great unfortunately the headphone has a design floor. The inside panel on my first pair cracked, I returned it to Apple and they gave me another pair. Another year later the next pair inside panel has also cracked.

There are several people online that complain about this, there is too much force on one bit of plastic. Show details

A 'WoW' experience

I bought these headphones to use at work, so that I could focus on my day without being interrupted by the noises around me.
Firstly, let me say just how awesome the experience was in just unboxing them! You receive this amazingly packaged box, with each layer taking you on a new experience. They even had strategically placed (easy to remove, no residue) stickers telling with a 'quick' explanation on how to connect to BlueTooth and the charge portal.
When I put them on, immediately the sound around me disappeared and the music played through clearly, and at a nice level. I would highly recommend these to anyone, and do think they are worth what I paid. Nice one Beats. Show details

Headphone band and hinge break easily

The headphone band and hinge on my Beats broke and my local Apple Store won’t repair. The self repair option is very difficult so now my headphones are useless. I am sure this must be a design flaw as there are so many sites selling replacement parts. Show details

They look brill and sound OK

I purchased mine a couple of years ago during the Black Friday sales from the Apple Store.
I listen to a wide range of popular music, from Dua Lipa to Eric Clapton, including the Three Tenors. I like the sound, and the Bluetooth range is good; I can go from my back bedroom/computer room to the kitchen or front door before the Bluetooth drops out. I live in a 3 bedroomed bungalow.
The sound is clear, the noise-cancelling OK, they work brilliantly with Apple Devices.
They are good for using on the bus or walking, using the iPhone.
Mine are decadent red, red and black, and they look super are well made the packaging is good, with the coloured cables for charging or using wired. Show details

Not worth it

Crack appeared in the earphone and Apple refused to fix it sighting damage caused by me. I only wear these sitting at my desk and its a common issue - I paid over $400 for the earphones. Now they wont answer calls - people cant hear me talking. Avoid - not worth the money and customer service has been dreadful, made to feel like a fraud.  Show details

Badly designed for anyone with a 'big head'

After 4 months these headphones developed a crack above the earpiece due to the design putting stress on the plastic when worn and were originally replaced. The replacement pair are now having exactly the same issue and Apple will not replace. Research shows this is a common fault and others have had exactly the same issue with them globally. Would not recommend at all and has turned me off the brand from their handling of the issue.

Love them!!

I adore these headphones. I can wear them on a walk, a run, when I’m cleaning around the house. They do not slide off, they stay put and they are noise cancelling. I’ve worn them on planes and when I’ve wanted to block out annoying colleagues and I would hate any other style now! Highly recommend! Show details

Just what I need

I listen to musics using my beats studio 3. The over-ear headphone is huge. So it is not suitable for physical activities like running. It has perfect sound volume and sound quality. I particularly love the noise cancelling feature. I can be 100% focus when listening to musics. It has good battery life too, enough for me to use for a day. Show details

Awesome but Pricey Headphone

Well, the noise cancellation feature is awesome. It looks good and feels good too. But it is way too pricey. It is huge so I don't think it is suitable for sports. I use it for relaxation, listening to music. Overall, it is a nice experience. Sound volume and wireless connections are not bad. Show details

Awesome Noice Cancellation

I normally listen to music with my headphone. It is huge. So some people might not like it. But the noise cancellation feature is just perfect for me when I am working in a noisy environment. I think it has an OKish wireless range. Show details

Convenience!

Mostly used for wireless connection with a laptop computer. Sound quality is good and noice cancellation is OK. Well built and look good. Can get a bit uncomfortable after 1+ hours wearing them. This is normal though. Show details

How true are all the claimed problems (poor bluetooth connectivity//reduced, or even non-existant audio quality etc) of use of the Beats Studio 3 headphones with android devices...eg. Samsung S8--??

Sorry I can’t help you as I use an iPhone/iPad with my headphones so I can’t tell you if there are any issues with android devices. All I can suggest is that you go to a store and try your device to see if there are any problems.
