Our take on the Beats by Dr. Dre® Wireless™

by David Brown
Beats
Beats Wireless headphones

The Beats Wireless headphones feature music and phone controls on the earcup.

Bring the Beats, leave the wires

Get the high-performance Beats sound without getting caught in the cord. Beats Wireless headphones offer Bluetooth® connectivity for easy hands-free control of your compatible mobile device while delivering the thundering bass and big sound that made Beats famous.

Wireless listening and talking is easily controlled with convenient buttons located on the right earcup. Make and answer phone calls, pause and play your music, or skip around between and within tracks while your mobile device remains safely stowed in a pocket or bag. You can even enable voice dialing on supported phones. A tiny microphone on the base of the right earcup —not a cumbersome protruding mic arm — captures your voice and translates it into clear speech for voice dialing and phone calls. Can't go wireless? Then plug the included cable into the minijack and you're ready for wired listening.

Lightweight and stylish, Beats Wireless are built for music lovers who want their music to follow them everywhere. The built-in battery, charged via the supplied USB cable, provides hours of music playback and phone use. Fold them up and stick them in the included touring case to take these headphones wherever you go. But as wearable as these sleek 'phones are, you'll probably keep them on your ears.

Features

Overview: The redesigned Beats Studio Wireless headphones, like the wired version, have new features to give you better sound, more comfort, and a streamlined look. These iconic headphones feature Bluetooth wireless technology, and are powered by a rechargeable battery. The Beats Studio comes with a 54" audio cable (in case you can't go wireless), a charging cable, and a cleaning cloth to keep your headphones looking new at all times.

Folding Design: The Beats Studio's ear cups are hinged so they can be folded for easy storage in the included soft padded carrying case.

Bluetooth: The Beats Studio Wireless headphones feature Bluetooth Specification 2.1 + EDR support so you can make and receive phone calls hands-free with a compatible mobile phone, and listen to music from a compatible music player from a distance of up to 33 feet. The headphones feature the following Bluetooth profiles: Headset Profile (HSP) V1.2, Hands-Free Profile (HFP) V1.5, Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) V1.0, and Audio Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) V1.0.

Beats Acoustic Engine: The Beats Studio Wireless 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.

Rechargeable Battery: The built-in battery provides approximately 10 hours of talk/playback time on a full charge when using wirelessly, and about 100 hours of standby time. The headphones include a 37" USB charging cable with a Type A USB plug on one end and a Micro USB plug on the headphone end. An indicator light will glow red while charging and green when fully charged. An empty battery takes about one hour to reach a full charge.

Built-in Microphone/Controls: The right ear cup has a built-in microphone and controls for pairing the headphones, adjusting the volume, and for your music listening and phone calls. The outside surface of the ear cup is a rocking panel with volume up and down, skip back and skip next, power and pairing, and answer/hang up for phone calls. The center button controls play and pause.

RemoteTalk Cable: A 54" straight RemoteTalk cable is included with the Beats Studio Wireless headphones so you can still listen to your music when you can't (or choose not to) go wireless. The RemoteTalk cable has an in-line microphone/3-button remote control. The remote is fully compatible with iPhone, iPod, and iPad, and partially compatible with HTC, Blackberry, and Android devices. The outer buttons control volume up and volume down (iOS devices only), while the center button controls phone calls and music playback. With one press, you can answer or hang up a phone call, and play or pause your music. Two presses during music playback skips forward to the next track. Three presses skips backwards to the beginning of the currently playing track or the previous track.

Quick impressions from the Lab

Comment by Ralph Graves Staff Writer - Creative,

Bluetooth with better bass

Written by Ralph Graves, Staff Writer - Creative, on 9/5/2012 11:59:00 AM

I've tried out several different models of the Dr. Dre headphones, and these wireless Bluetooth headphones are definitely the ones I like best. I'm not sure if its the absence of the cord, but they seem to fit lighter on my head, while still providing a comfortable seal around my ears.

Once I had these paired with the Crutchfield Labs iPhone and music was streaming into the headphones, I didn't hear anything around me. Make no mistake, these are not 'phones for Beethoven and Bach — that's not the way they're voiced. But if you crave thumping bass and crystal-clear vocals, then these Beats will do the trick.

And the controls on the side of the earcups worked just fine. Small indentations make them easy to find by feel. It wasn't long before I was remotely switching tracks and controlling volume with ease.

Great product

Written By Naten, Norfolk, VA on Saturday, December 29, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These headphones are very good for everyday use. They are a latest fashion trend, everywhere I go with these things I hear people talking about them. The fact that they are wireless is a big plus for me. Sound quilty is very good for the wireless but it can be better as Bluetooth techongly advances. When these head phones are plugged in they sound great. Beats are 100% designed with hip-hop/rap in mind. lots of bass for all kind of music. I'm not an audio expert but when these headphones are plugged in the vocals and mids sound better. Comfort = A+ ; I have worn these +6 hours. Noise reduction is great when the volume is low but with no music everything just sounds muffled. Battery life on these headphones are amazing, best part in my option. The battery last longer than my phone. and charge time is always under an hour. I have used them 2 days straight without charging them! Overall these headphone are worth it. They are almost in there own catagory, not many headphone out there like these.
Pros:
Bluetooth, Warranty, Stylish, Compact, Battery life
Cons:
Fingerprint magnets
