Our take on the Beats by Dr. Dre® Studio® EKOCYCLE

by David Brown

3 plastic bottles = 1 great pair of headphones

Beats Studio EKOCYCLE Around-Ear Headphone

Go green with the signature look and sound of Beats by Dr. Dre. The Beats Studio EKOCYCLE headphones turn everyday trash into sonic treasure. As part of the EKOCYCLE initiative among leading brands like Coca-Cola, these Beats Studio headphones are made of 31 percent recycled material consisting of 3 plastic bottles. You'll enjoy the same studio-quality detail and rumbling bass of the original Beats Studio headphones while helping reduce waste and protect the environment.

Less noise. More music.

Noise-canceling technology actively reduces external sound so you can focus better on your music. But if you need to take a call, the in-line remote and microphone lets you answer your compatible mobile phone while your music pauses. You can also control music playback with the remote, so you can keep your device safely tucked away while you're on the go.

In addition to their eye-catching looks, the Beats Studio EKOCYCLE headphones are built for comfort, with an extra-wide headband and plush, breathable ear cushions. Taking them on the road? Just fold them up for convenient storage in the supplied travel case.

Overview: The Beats by Dre Studio EKOCYCLE headphones are precision engineered to reveal the full sonic range of music. They feature the Beats Acoustic Engine, and Adaptive Noise Canceling powered by two "AAA" batteries. The Beats Studios comes with two 54" straight audio cables and a white hard-shell carrying case.

EKOCYCLE: These special edition Beats Studio headphones are part of the EKOCYCLE initiative that was launched in October 2012 to educate consumers about recycling choices. The EKOCYCLE Studio headphones contain 31% recycled material, using three assorted recycled PET plastic bottles. They are packaged in a box made of recycled materials.

Folding Design: The Beats Studio's earcups are hinged so they can be folded for easy storage in the included hard-shell carrying case.

Beats Acoustic Engine: The Beats Studio features custom DSP software that is designed for specific music types, such as rock, hip-hop, pop, electronic, and R&B, to bring out the full musical experience. The resulting sound is designed to bring you an intimate, personal, and emotional listening experience.

Adaptive Noise Canceling: The Beats Studio headphones have an active noise reduction system called Adaptive Noise Canceling (ANC). Powered by 2 "AAA" batteries (supplied), you can activate ANC to cancel out external noise by simply plugging in the audio cable. Likewise, you can turn off ANC by unplugging the cable. You can use ANC when listening to music to eliminate unwanted noise so you'll hear your music only. The ANC-only mode, activated by pressing the power button with no cables plugged in, increases the amount of noise cancellation so you can enjoy peace and quiet, even without music.

Audio Cables: Two 54" straight audio cables are included with the Beats Studio headphones. One cable is for audio listening only, while the other has an in-line microphone/3-button remote control. The remote is fully compatible with iPhone, iPod, and iPad. The outer buttons control volume up and volume down, while the center button controls phone calls and music playback. It is also partially compatible with Android, Blackberry, and Windows devices (play/pause music and answer/hang up phone calls). A 3.5mm-to-6.3mm adapter is included.

Mute: When listening to music through the headphones, you can mute the audio by simply pressing and holding the Beats logo (red "b") on the right earcup.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I purchase a pair of beats by dre for an up coming trip. I use them while at work and it cuts out the conversations going on around me. I really enjoy the feel of the heads phones.
