Beats Studio 2013
The original Beats Studio hyped the bass hard. The new Beats Studio 2013 doesn't.

The good: The new Beats Studio headphones are lighter, sturdier, and better-sounding than the original Studio headphones. They offer a comfortable fit and active noise cancellation, which works well but not great. The noise cancellation is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery that offers up to 20 hours of battery life. The headphones fold up to fit in a nice carrying case (included).
The bad: Very faint hiss from noise cancellation; if the internal battery dies, the headphones don't work; fairly pricey at $300.
The bottom line: They may not be a bargain at $300, but the new Beats Studio headphones are lighter and better-built, and sound significantly better than the original Beats Studio model.
