He finds that the bass is impressive, product is stylishly designed, quality materials are used and product has noise cancellation.

The reviewer explains that these Beats Studio headphones are designed with hip hop and an urban environment in mind. The muddy sound and bass are part of the design. He notes that the headphones are specialized for this purpose but are still good for listening to other forms of music. He recommends trying a pair of these headphones before buying. The reviewer considers these to be the best headphones he has ever owned. He notes that he listens to a wide spectrum of music genres. He considers the build quality to be top notch. He mentions the ability to temporarily mute audio by pressing the side of the headphones and considers this to be a brilliant touch.
The reviewer is a collector of headphones. He considers the bass to be clean and pleasant but somewhat exaggerated. He finds the treble to be slightly, while the middle is even more, underrepresented. Reviewer finds headphones to be diminutively muddy. The biggest drawback mentioned by the reviewer is the missing sound stage. He gives an overall above average score for the headphones.
