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
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

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

audio by simply pressing and holding the Beats logo (red "b") on the right
