Pros Sound quality is amazing
New battery system is solid
Feels stronger & lighter
Cons Not inexpensive
Summary In my opinion the top two makers of consumer grade Headphones/Earphones are Bose and Beats. I just so happen to own a few sets of both. My new Beats Studio Headphones are making my statement true with the overall performance so far. A real world test in my opinion is how well the headphones work with a laptop, IPod/IPhone, android/smartphone and possibly a tablet.Edit:
The test will always vary from product to product but so far the new Studio is holding high against my Bose headphones in clarity. I used my HP laptop with the Beats Audio in the build and ran the audio on the laptop at 50% just to lower it to 46% receiving quality results without maxing out(dangerous levels). I logged onto Youtube during this time, running a few songs/videos basic stuff that the normal listener would do.
Results were good even with lower quality older videos and a mix of new music to round out a good showing. A quick log on to NetFlix to check how it does in longer play with variable sound made me feel like my decision to purchase the new Studio was worth it just for viewing movies alone. Next I ran the new Studio using my Samsung Galaxy S4 featuring pretty much the same scenerio of music, video and a quick log on to my NetFlix account.
Again not running the audio at it's max I was pleased to see that these new Studio were giving my Bose headphones a run for their money. Lastly I ran my recently purchased Nexus 7 FHD with the Studio, this was the only time I ran the audio at it's max due to the Nexus' lower audio levels. The results were nicer than those I get from my Bose. Now here are the features that are good. The rechargeable battery is rated at 20 hours and I charged the unit about an hour and a half before all my testing.
The noise cancellation is great with outside noise being made next to silent. You can power up with the cord unconnected to activate the noise cancellation when you want a little quiet time. I like the new look being it's more simple and great for listeners of all ages to use as an everyday accessory. Where as most people only test their new purchase with one source I have done three because I am not the type of reviewer that bases their opinion on a quick run through.
I like to compare my opinion to others and I saw a negative review because you have to disconnect the cable to shutdown the Studio. If having to disconnect one wire is a deal breaker I believe you should avoid this product. If you love music and movies on multiple sources than this is a real winner.

Pros 1. Sound - Amazing sound, it's like you listening to the music at a concert.
2. Comfort - These headphones go around your ears, and have a great cushion.
Cons 1. Charge - It needs to be charged somewhat frequently, but it's not an issue to me.
Pros -Light weight
Cons -Price $$$
-Turns off randomly
-Should have a beeping sound for on/off
Summary So recently got a pair of the remastered beats by dre studio line and the headphones are stylish, sexy, lightweight, and has all the bass I've been dreaming of. However on a full charge it is expected to last 20 hours. I charged up the headphones, checked the battery indicator and while I'm relaxing listening to some of my favorite tunes it will shut off unexpectedly 15 mins - 20 mins in. Sometimes I get lucky and it will let me finish my playlist. I know its a fully charged too. The auto off would be a nice feature if it didn't have a mind of it's own. Aside from that issue, the sound is great. You can plug it into your device and feel the beats, if you want to play a fps with it, be my guest, the sound is incredible for not being a set of gaming headphones either. Perhaps I'll see if I can trade in my pair for a new set if it is defective or not though.
Thanks for your submission!
