The Wireless Head Phone reviewed here was released in September 2017 and it remains one of our top picks for wireless noise canceling head phones while we don’t rate it as highly as the Sony WH-1000XM2 and Bose Quiet Comfort 35 II. the price for the Beats Studio Wireless has dropped in recently and you can get it for less than better price in online. That makes it a more attractive option in this category.
That’s the philosophy behind Beats’ flagship noise-canceling headphone, the Head Phone Wireless, which costs very good Aside from a few new color options it looks virtually identical to its predecessor which was released four years ago.
My first reaction to seeing the “new” high end Beats was probably the same as yours: “Wait, it has exactly the same design as the one that came out in 2014.
Yes, really. Thanks to some stitching tweaks, the earpads are slightly softer, which makes it a touch more comfortable, but that’s about it.
Dig a little deeper, however, and changes inside abound. The new Beats is a better performing headphone on several fronts, including sound, battery life and noise canceling.
I wasn’t able to crack the headphone open to see those changes, but Beats says it has completely redesigned the guts or DNA of this headphone, with not only new drivers but new circuitry that includes Apple’s W1 chip found in other Beats wireless headphones — the Power Head Phone Wireless, the Solo3 Wireless and the BeatsX — and Apple’s Air Pods.
That W1 chip makes connecting the headphone to Apple devices dead simple and also helps deliver better battery life. It’s now up to 22 hours with wireless and noise canceling on, double that of the previous model.
Battery life numbers vary with volume levels, so you may not get quite that amount, but I was able to consistently hit at least 20 hours of playback and sometimes more before I had to recharge (that’s slightly better than the Bose Quiet Comfort 35 II battery life). Turn off noise canceling and that number goes up to 40 hours. Meanwhile, the Beats Fast Fuel feature gives you three hours of playback from just 10 minutes of charging.
Yes, this headphone works with non-Apple Bluetooth audio devices — I paired them to a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, for example — but their special pairing feature is limited to Apple devices running iOS 10 or later, Watch OS 3 or later or MacOS Sierra or later.
