I have the Beats Studio 2 purchased from BHPhotoVideo and the Base and Volume levels are higher than any other headphones. The nose cancelling is no good. I test every headphone volume and base level and nothing is as loud or have so much base as the Beats Studio 2. I haven't risked testing the Beats Studio 3 as they sound like they are not as loud or have as much base. I purchased the Beats Studio 2 in the UK Apple shop and immediately returned and said "these are not Beats" and was given a refund. It looks like the Beats purchased in the UK Apple shop have the volume and base reduce. I purchased the Beats Studio 1 from Amazon dot com and they too were very loud and had very loud base. I purchased the Sony Sony WH-1000XM1 and some songs had no base. Interestingly I have a song that has lots of base and they were actually loud in the Sony WH-1000XM1 so that is the reason why I have to test the Sony WH-1000XM3. The song is Univited (feat. Baily Tzuke) Freemasons Unmixed. This song is very loud. Another song is Billy Idol Mony Mony the ESvid version downloaded to your phone, plus a few other songs were I test the base and the Base overall on the Beats Studio 2 sound the best. I have the Powerbeats Pro and the base and volume are good but not as loud as the Beats Studio 2. Nothing out there is as loud or have as much base as the Beats Studio 2. Can some one please make some headphones that are as loud and have as much Base as the Beats Studio 2.

I am not sure ... I know they probably have better sound but i just cant pay $300+ for headphones ... I just cant .... there were in my view ... in the late 90's and early 2000 a decent pair of Sony earbuds but even the last two or so pair of those I had broke right away and had NO BASE ... the ones I liked I remember sounding good (maybe not great) across the board..... I actually just ordered (at a lower price-point I admit) two pair of Sony's ... not the model that broke on me after two years of daily use ... but a model or two "up" ... they may need some EQ help depending on the device but if set right (EQ), they can sound really good ... the fact that I could get a really good (say 1/2 price or less on both pair) ... I just couldn't pass the deals up, even though I have not had these models before

It’s popular to hate on beats that’s why people do it. In blind tests, beats have proven their superiority.

answers yes, one its apple, there products are awful and 2. they fall apart in a year. have some and ear cups are almost completely worn off and the headband rubbers separated on the front so it digs into your head and hurts. just get something like the arctis 5, there only £80 and a lot better

I used beats for a few years. Someone bought me them as a Christmas gift. I didn't have any problem with the sound quality but my biggest problem was the actual hinges it had. I have long hair and it would get caught in between the hinges all the time. I eventually switched to Bose noise-canceling headphones. I have autism and the noise-canceling has changed my life. Another thing about the bose that is great is that when I listen to music on max no one near me can hear my music. With the beats, I had to listen to music on low volume whenever I was in public. Only bad thing I would say is the audio cord. It is proprietary and it has broken three times. The beats headphones audio cord I never had a problem with.

Beats headphones are nothing more than fashion accessories. They aren't for serious sound quality. Bose aren't either really, they are to bassy and lack mid range.

I've honestly never had any good experiences with Beats, I had a few pairs of Solos, mostly thanks to an ex, and a pair of Studios, and compared to JBL, I'm not impressed in sound or quality

First time I saw this video, but bought wireless noise-cancelling headphones back in May. I had a shortlist of four - Sony , Bose, Bang & Olufsen H9i and Bowers & Wilkins PX. The Microsofts were an outsider, but Beats never got a look-in. For design & looks alone, I really wanted to like the B&W PX, but they were uncomfortable on my (large) head. B&O sounded great and had goo controls, but felt weird on my ears. The Bose were good, but felt a bit flimsier, so it went with Sony (What Hi-Fi's Best Buy) and I've been really happy with them.

so I got a free pair of studio beats that came with my new MacBook Pro because of my school discount and I hate them so much, the pairing is kind of annoying because It never seems to connect to the right device and the sound quality is got awful. My AirPods are so much better and I have a friend who owns a pair of Sonys (the ones in the video) and they were superior in every way, I am a big fan of apples products but I must say what a bad job they did with the beats, I got them for free then again so Idrc I mean its a free headset but the music always sounds distorted and I hear buzzing within my headphones just the same as I have experienced with other low quality headsets, vocals are bad and I agreed so much when they said there is NO BASS!

I find it hilarious, Apple wants to enter the audiophile market, their entire line-up just sucks and isn´t appealing to audiophile at all. Take just the shitty iPod with it´s iTunes force, that´s nothing any audiophile would ever want, because you would be bound to a certain library. The crapy audio quality and their audio codec can´t keep up with the other formats and those Creeps headphones............sounds like a joke by Apple, convincing audiophiles.

those Microsoft cans are a joke - maybe the interface is novel, but why bother to touch it since everything else sucks? Can't even pack them up for heebeegeebee's sake. Those Bose do not sound as good as anyone says including these two. AND they compare them to the 1000XM3's? ANY OTHER REVIEW has Sony beating the pants off of those Bose, period. If you prefer their very vanilla / plain / non exceptional sound yea the grandpas choice Bose is for you. Beats are not that bad. Overpriced sure. But they are not that bad. There was a booth at electronics expo for sound that was doing blind tests and you would be so surprised how many users blindly voted beats over the likes of Beyerdynamic and Sennheisers. I'm not as brand biased as most and I was shocked. Just do what I do and laugh at reviews, and test yourself at a store.

@SOME TECH CHANNEL thats not possible the video creator (while editing the video) decides how loud or quiet a video is also that's a bad idea because if youre in a public space and its super loud your audio will get cranked up to max and bust your eardrums
@Sam Smith thanks, I also really wish ESvid would equalise their videos because I will watch one video and it be super loud and then another one and it be super quiet and constantly adjusting my volume levels.
