Beats by Dr. Dre headphones

The headphones to the music – the music to the headphones

Dr. Dre, hiphop legend, producer of Snoopy Dogg, Eminem, Tupac Shapur and 50 Cent with the right hands for business, built headphones that were supposed to bring out the bass better – and did. Under the (obvious) name Beats, the chic listeners became world famous just as quickly as Dr. Dres Musik. The Beats brand now belongs to Apple and they continue to build headphones with lots of bass at ambitious prices. Dr. Dre continues to make hip-hop music at its best. Why should that also change …

Editor's recommendations: Beats by Dr. Dre

I’m revising my earlier prejudgements about Beats headphones. At least with the Studio3 Wireless, I find the product not only visually appealing, but have to applaud it from a sound perspective as well. There’s a modern sound texture, playful listening experience through the playlist, plus sophisticated wireless communication that ensures these Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones will deliver in spades in all situations.

There’s a choice of materials and chic design to enjoy here, which both underline the overall quality of the product. With the Studio3 Wireless, Beats joins top-tier competitors from the likes of B&O Play, Bowers & Wilkins and Sennheiser. For those with a penchant for Apple devices, the Studio3 is particularly recommended, with smooth connection to iOS and MacOS devices ensuring a user-friendly experience.

The Beats by Dre BeatsX headphones deliver more than just a slick design, premium workmanship and first-rate aesthetics. These in-ears in fact seem a lot closer in technical function and capability to Apple’s new AirPods, rather than their own Beats brothers. Some might think that Beats has intentionally positioned the new BeatsX as an alternative to AirPods, capitalising on the allure of the cheaper price, while still delivering similar sound output, even if the feature set is slightly reduced. The BeatsX are good all-rounders and are particularly suited to the iPhone and iPad owner seeking a new pair of in-ears with plenty to get excited about.

The Powerbeats Pro only have one noteworthy drawback – the not particularly practical size of the transport case. Apart from that, the concept is convincing and the completely cable-free Beats sports headphones offer not only a full and detail-rich sound, but also handy technical refinements like single earpiece listening mode with full remote support, sensor-based playback control and a “Hey Siri” function, which are all convenient in everyday life.
