As a blogger, I use headphones to listen to music or YouTube videos everyday. I like to wear them when editing photos and writing blog posts, as I find it helps me to concentrate. I’ve had many different brands of headphones over the years, but there’s one brand I’ve always wanted to try and that’s Beats headphones. Read on to see a comparison of the different models available to help you decide which set of Beats will suit you the best.
Beats were founded by music producer and rapper Dr. Dre and have featured in many music videos since their launch which has only increased their popularity. There are so many different models of Beats it can be overwhelming when deciding which model is the best for you and they’re definitely a considered purchase, so you need to make sure you choose the right model to suit your needs.
Beats do earphones and headphones, but I personally prefer to use headphones, as I find them to be more comfortable than the in-ear option. The first decision you need to make is whether or not you want a wireless model or a wired model. If you want one of the wireless models, naturally they are more expensive than the wired models, but only marginally. I like to use wireless headphones, as it gives me more freedom of movement when wearing them and you don’t have to worry about wires get tangled, which is definitely one of the downsides of having wired electronics. Once you know which wiring type you want, you just need to decide which model is best suited to your needs in terms of specifications.
The two main models are Studio 3 and Solo 3. The Studio 3 models have over ear cushioning, wireless technology, up to 22 hours of battery life as well as have active noise cancellation. The Solo 3 models are your perfect everyday headphones and can instantly connect to your iPhone. Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones deliver up to 40 hours of battery life driven by the efficiency of the Apple W1 chip. Headphone design wise, the main difference being the Studio are over ear, whilst the Solo are on ear, and I know myself I prefer the over ear design, as it’s more comfortable but it’s good that you have the choice available.
From what I’ve seen online, I believe the Studio 3 models have better sound quality but they’re both Beats by Dre, so they’re going to have exceptional sound quality regardless. If I had to choose between the two, I think I’d opt for the Solo model, as the battery life is better and I don’t need the best bass when listening to YouTube videos and they’re around £30-£50 cheaper than the Studio models. Either way, I think you’d be very happy with your new headphones as the quality is exceptional.
