What more would anyone want in a pair of headphones if they could get to embrace the classic headband over-the-ear style once again with 115dB-rated monstrous Monster cans? It is not just because ‘they can take a lot of punishment’ as many music producers say.
There are a bunch of reasons why Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones remain some of the best headphones for studio work and even for typical applications. The huge speaker drivers will simply blow your mind and wrench your gut with powerful sound. Do not buy these cans just because they are endorsed by rap mogul and hip-hop godfather Andre ‘Dre’ Romelle Young himself. Get these cans because you love your music and it is your life.
Get em because you want to hear your music exactly as the musician recorded it in the studio. This is because, as Dr. Dre concedes, people are just not hearing all the music. After recording artistes have done all the hard work and perfected audio tracks, very few headphones are capable of reproducing the required bass, the level of detail and the dynamics. Clearly an important member of our best headphones 2012 collection, Beats by Dr. Dre Studio is one of those select few.
High-Powered Digital Amp
Of course it is no walk in the park for portable devices to power these monstrous cans and make full use of them. Most iPhones, iPods, iPads, blackberry phones, MP3 players and portable DVD players will be grossly overwhelmed by the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphone speakers. That is why Monster found it to be a thoughtful idea to include a high powered digital amplifier in the headphones. You can now pump out your hip-hop, R&B and rock loud plus plus and distortion minus minus.
It seems almost impossible to conceive how an amp is fitted in a pair of cans but this is Monster and they have showed us in the past that they can turn water into wine. The amp circuit is powered by two AAA batteries. It is a great way to utilize the power required for the powered noise cancellation, which we will come to later.
The whole amplifier concept is what allows the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones to claim a spot in the best headphones 2012 list so easily. To think that you can use your headphones with almost any kind of music player is very empowering for a headphone user. You can tune up the output from low-power players like some phones and get them to give up all the subtleties of the music in a jiffy. If the player produces adequate output, like premium iPods, you can lower the volume on the device or on your headphones. If you power down on the device it means you spare device battery power, which is a big plus.
We probably don’t have to talk much about this because Monster cable talks for itself but it is hard to resist. We’re talking premium tangle-free that will never lose a note of quality. How is this?
Many music players are capable of producing great sound but they are let down by the headphones in use. Sometimes it is the speakers that just can’t handle it but mostly – and many people don’t get this – it is the headphone cable that is the culprit. Cable that is poorly constructed using cheap material resists electric current and sucks up a great percentage of the output meaning that not all of it gets to your ears. Another factor is the electric waves present in the air that interfere with the current as it travels along wires. Best headphones are constructed in such a way that what the incoming signal is delivered as it is to the speakers if not enhanced along the way.
The cable on the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio uses Quadripole twisted pair technology ensuring that no interference and distortion can compromise your music. Once it goes through the revolutionary amp, the monstrous speakers will be deliver bass, highs and vocals at a whole new level of smooth and accurate.
Then of course Monster cable is sturdy and it will be ages and ages of great music before you can expect it to give in. And it won’t tangle either. When you talk about the most advanced and best headphones 2012, there is no way you’d leave these cans out.
iSonitalk and Powered Noise Cancellation
It is not ControlTalk this time around. The audio control unit on these the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones is called iSonitalk. An advancement of the previous ControlTalk unit, iSonitalk adds a mute button so you can instantly cut off the music and hear what is going on around you. All the features of ControlTalk are included still, meaning that the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio is ready for all the ‘Apples’ – iPods, iPads and iPhones – as well as a flurry of smartphones. You can answer calls, skip to next track and all that jazz.
For when you want to cut off everything that is going on out there and concentrate on your music, these headphones feature premium powered noise isolation. If you are all about music, then you just gotta get the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio.
