Not a note is missed with cool, comfy Studio3 Wireless headphones

Beats Studio3 Wireless overear headphones can add more fun to music listening on your iPhone or iPad with powerful bass and effective noise cancellation.

You can count on long battery life and fast charging, as well as technology that makes it easy to connect to your Apple devices.

Studio3 Wireless is powered by an Apple W1 chip that ensures seamless setup and switching between devices.

When I put the headphones near my iPad Pro 10.5-inch, a dialogue box appeared on the tablet’s screen asking if I wanted to connect them. Then I just followed the instructions to complete the setup.

Once your all hooked up, it’s easy to switch to other devices running on the macOS Sierra, iOS 10 and watchOS 3 – as long as they’re linked to your iCloud account and you’re using the same Apple ID.

As for the battery life, when Pure ANC is turned on, it can last up to 22 hours, and if Pure ANC is off, you can get 40 hours. Fast Fuel technology also allows for three hours of play on a 10-minute charge.

The headphones are designed for long-term comfort. The soft overear cushions feature advanced venting and signature ergonomic pivoting, so there’s a custom, flexible fit for any head shape.

The light weight means you can wear them for hours without discomfort.

Connected to your iPhone, the Studio3 Wireless can control music playback. Press the “b” on the left earcup once to pause or play playback. Press twice to skip ahead a track and three times to skip backwards.

Press the “b” twice and hold to scan forward through a track, three times and hold to scan backwards.

To control the playback and phonecall volume, there are buttons above and below the “b”. Press and release Volume Up or Volume Down or press and hold to increase and decrease the volume continuously.

You can also use the Remote Talk cable to control playback volume.

For phone calls, press the “b” once to answer or end a call and press again to answer a second incoming call and put the first call on hold. When two calls are active, press “b” again to switch between them. You can reject an incoming call by pressing and holding the “b” for one second.

To stop listening through your headphones and send the call to the phone, press “b” twice.

To activate Siri on your iOS device or the voicecommand feature on another device, press and hold the “b” until you hear a chime, then say what you wish.

You can check the battery level and charging status on the Fuel Gauge by tapping the power button.

Pure ANC is enabled by default each time you power up the Studio3 Wireless, but you can turn it off by double-pressing the power button while connected to your device. You can turn it on again by repeating the process.

The package includes the 3.55mm Remote Talk cable that can be used for listening to music and controlling playback. The cable has a centre button that functions like the “b” on the earcup.

There’s also a hard carrying case that the headphones fold into for convenient transport.

The Beats Studio3 Wireless is available in Shadow Grey, Porcelain Rose, Matte Black, White, Blue and Red for Bt12,500 at
