What’s it like to use the Beats Studio3 Wireless?

Beats Studio3

The Beats Studio3 wireless is entirely made of smooth, matte plastic material. The headband is easily customized for transport and is adjustable enough not to cause you discomfort. Along with the headband, the carrying case also very sturdy and durable. For that, I would recommend using if you decide to go with this headset.

The ear buds are rotate through 90 degree to fit comfortably into the carrying case. Moreover, they are not much of a fingerprint magnet as you might expect, but it’s nice. I can wear this for hours before the pain starts in my ears, although after a few hours the skin gets warm. The same can’t be said about the headband: it’s made of stiff, grippy plastic that stretches my hair.

Furthermore, the headphone lacks the IP ratings of water and sweat resistance. Which means you could not wear them during swimming or running or while raining outside. They should stay in place during workouts and casual listening sessions.  If you need that reassurance, you’ve got to pay more money for the Sony or Jabra headphones.

How good is the touch controls of the Beats Studio3?

In addition, it has a few separate buttons and, despite the symmetrical appearance of the headphones, they are all located on the left (save for the power button). Clicking the “b” logo on the left ear cup once will pause or play music, moving to the next song twice, and returning to the previous song three times. You can also press and hold the button to access your phone’s smart assistant. Above and below the “b” logo you will find volume up and volume down controls. On the contrary, the only button on the right ear cup is the power button on the bottom. Which also lets you turn off or on active noise cancelling if you double-tap it.

What is the sound quality of the Beats Studio3?

When it comes to headphones that I’m going to be using for hours at a time on plane rides and commutes, I want three things: comfort (which I already spoke about), battery life (which is pretty good), and sound quality. If I’m taking a 20-hour plane ride, chances are that I’m going to be staring wistfully out of the window at some point, reminiscing and listening to my favorite Bon Iver song, as we all do. At that point, sound quality becomes really important.

Lows, mids, and highs

Now, these Beats headphones are notorious for favoring bass but it’s not as loud as you might expect. Boosted bass notes are louder than our home curve (pink) would suggest, though they remain listenable. Bass-heavy tracks in particular can suffer: the bass in Never Look Back by Slow Club masks the slow finger snaps in the intro. It really shouldn’t happen. Almost all at once but at least the midrange boost makes them quite easy to hear.

At about 0:08 seconds, the main melody arrives, which is a female singer layered on top of another singer singing the same melody in a lower register. With these headphones, that secondary melody is more or less the same as the output of the main melody, which, by definition, should not be the case.

How’s the active noise cancelling performance on the Beats Studio3 Wireless?

The Studio3 wireless headphone come with a advanced Active noise cancellation. Another key point is that you can turn the ANC on or off in two ways: one is by clicking the power button twice, and the other is in the actual Bluetooth settings app on iOS. On Android, you can toggle ANC if you download the Beats app. The headphones by default always have the ANC on, and it adapts to the amount of sound going on around you. In addition, the ANC unit is passable, but not great. Although the Beats Studio 3 Wireless is very good at physically blocking sound from entering your ears, the cumulative effect is worth it.

How do you connect the Beats Studio3 Wireless?

Beats Studio3

The Beats Studio3 wireless come with a Bluetooth 5.1 wireless connectivity with 10m range. As a result, you can wirelessly connect to other device like smart-phone, tablets, PCs and iOS. Along with Bluetooth, the headphone also offers SBC and AAC Bluetooth codecs support. Furthermore, Studio3 specially made from Apple’s very own W1 chip. If you’re in the Apple ecosystem, you’ll be able to use it automatically with all your iCloud devices. If you’re on Android, you’ll have to pair up with the old-fashioned well by opening your Bluetooth settings, but it’s also fairly seamless. No matter your device, there is no audio-visual lag on iOS or Android.

At the bottom of the left ear cup is a 3.5mm input, so you can plug in the included audio cable with the mic and remote. And, no, it doesn’t end in a power cable, nor does it come with a dongle. Going to the right ear cup, you get a power button and five small LED lights that tell you about how much battery is left. Double-tapping the power button lets you turn on and off active voice cancellation as long as you’re on an iOS device.

To toggle noise cancelling with an Android, you need to download the Beats app. Then at the very bottom is a micro USB port, which isn’t a USB Type-C because, reasons.

How long does the Beats Studio3 Wireless battery last?

Beats Studio3

The Beats claims a battery life of 22 hours with active voice cancellation turned on and 40 hours without. For reference, Boss claims about 20 hours of continuous playback on their QC35 headphones. Here in our test we found 10 hours, 12 minutes at 100% volume with ANC turned on, so if you don’t want to pull out your eardrums it’s not hard to see how you can do this for more than 22 hours.

Should you buy the Beats Studio3 Wireless?

Though the plush ear pads are comfortable, the grippy plastic on the bottom of the headband is annoying to wear.

Overall, the plush ear pads are comfortable, the grippy plastic at the bottom of the headband annoying to wear. I have a hard time recommending this headset. Studio3 Wireless feels like it was haphazardly thrown together to take a piece of the ANC market currently being ravaged by Bose and Sony. They offer significantly worse sound than both Bose QuietComfort® 45 and the Sony WH-1000XM4, sounding like they’ll crack if you crank them too much, and, while the ANC is decent, it’s no better than its alternatives.

What is the good alternative to the Studio3 headset?

Sony INZONE H9 wireless is a perfect alternative to the Studio3 headset. The headphone offers a Dual Noise Sensor Technology. Moreover, with Ambient Sound Mode, you can play your game and still hear important sounds like phone calls, doorbells, or someone speaking to you in your environment. The headphone also features 360 spatial audio, 40mm dome type drivers, Bluetooth 5.1 and SBC/AAC audio codec. Like previous headphones, it has 360 surround sound and INZONE hub software. Let’s what additional special features this headset offers.

JLAB Studio Pro ANC is another good to buy headset compare to Studio3 headset. The headphone comes with an ultimate over-ear headphone experience with four noise control modes and Smart Active Noise Canceling. Moreover, it also has ultra-comfortable with Form-Fit™ Earcups, plush Cloud Foam™ cushions and the adjustable headband. The Studio Pro ANC has an amazing 45+ hours of playtime and custom EQ3 sound without an app. Further, it has a 600mAh rechargeable battery  and 450 hours of standby time.
