The Beats Studio3 Wireless are good headphones that go over the ears. They look just like the old Beats Studio Wireless, which was stylish and well-made, but they cancel out noise better. Their active noise canceling (ANC) system and audio playback instantly adjust to you and your surroundings.
It’s a great feature when it works right, but sometimes it doesn’t work right. Also, when this feature is on, there can be a lot of white noise, which can be annoying if you’re not listening to music. From the outside, the Beats Studio3 look a lot like the Beats Studio Wireless from 2014. The ear cups and the outside of the headband are mostly made of plastic, but there is a pretty sturdy metal band underneath that can be moved 10 steps on each side.

Where to get Beats Studio3 headphones?
There are six types of headphones, like white, pink, and gray, but we got the matte black model. It’s a good choice if you want to fit in with your surroundings instead of standing out with bright colors like candy-apple red or bright blue. The inside of the ear cups is made of thick padding wrapped in soft synthetic leather. There is plenty of padding for long listening sessions, and the inside of the cap is covered with a soft rubbery material like the Sennheiser 4.50 BTNC. They aren’t as soft as some, but they should keep the headphones in place and be comfy.
One of the most important changes in the Beats Studio 3 Wireless is the W1 chip from Apple. This is a special wireless chipset that makes the process of connecting to an iPhone or iPad much smoother. When you turn on the Beats Studio 3 Wireless, a pop-up message with a spinning 3D model of the headphones will show on your iPhone. To join, you just tap a button on this pop-up. iOS 13 already has a great way to connect to regular Bluetooth headphones, but the W1 chip makes the connection feel more direct.
