In regards to the beats 'click' on the hinge. It's not a good thing. A couple of years ago I was stupid enough to get studio 2s. That click eventually results in the hinges breaking exactly 3 days after your *1 year!?* warranty and they expect you to pay 160 quid to fix them. Buy Sony or senheisers. Don't buy beats if you want bass.

Can confirm. Short answer: They suck Long Answer: They have always sucked. Recently sampled a boat load of headphones and brought home both the AKG k240’s and AT m50x’s. I tried pretty much all of the headsets best buy had on display and I was far from impressed with Bose and the beats were mediocre. Tolerable, but I would not pay for them. The more expensive sony’s sounded pretty good, but I wasnt dropping $300 or whatever on their flagship cans at best buy. Hate the k240’s with a passion. There is absolutely NOTHING below say 150hz. Absolutely zero bottom end, im not sure what about the store pair intrigued me. The m50’s sounded excellent with multiple genres of music, however the soundstage on them makes it incredibly difficult to use them for gaming, unless you dont care about isolating location of sounds such as footsteps. (Atmos for headphones wont help these) In the end, I kept the Cloud S’s they were to replace. Same price as the m50x’s and soundstage aside, they sound very very similar. M50’s are marginally better, but the cloud cans I can actually still isolate noise locations, as well as listen to music with solid lows and mids and crisp but not piercing, painful, highs. Im pretty sure the cloud S’s are identical to another pair of theirs just with different looks and no gimmick dolby usb “surround” sound dongle, so if you can find which pair of cans are the same minus the dongle and different appearance (same drivers), I strongly recommend those if you’re like me and looking for a good pair for gaming AND heavy music and video listening headphones. Reason I recommend the pair w/o the dongle is I have found these can at 24bit/192k plugged into my audio interface (I have an XLR powered mic, I needed it regardless) sound just as good as some of the best reviewed studio cans out there. (I now know the reason behind this but that is a topic for another conversation.) Theyre also a very low impedance (resistance to the flow of electricity) so phones with audio ports or devices other than a motherboard or soundcard, can easily power and drive these.

If you swiped and holder the touch on the Sony you would also able to make it louder. It behaves like holding the louder button on the mobile phone. Your don't have to swipe 100 times..... You can also activate the assistant by long pressing the middle without loosing the ambient sound button.

Beats are absolute garbage I got a pair of beats studio 3's and they stopped working so after a few hours I got them to reset and they still don't charge. Which I was pretty careful with them I always had them in the case if I wasn't using them and I never dropped them so it's not like it was my fault and then to get them repaired or replaced it's a few hundred dollars too

I have the Bose and the ear cup cushions start to wear out after about 2 years. You can buy replacements on the Bose website but just thought I’d point out. They’re fantastic headphones though.

For $350 that better whole lot better than "good enough" that's why I bought Sony and steered well away from Beats

Short answer: No, but yes for the price. Also this hasn't really changed over the years. Also. Are we just gonna ignore Sennheiser, Audio Technica, AKG, Hifiman, etc? Maybe they're not big into the wireless market. I imagine Sennheiser at minimum would be though. I'll take IEM's over all of them any day though. Wait wait wait. Those are all $350? Hard pass on all 4 lol

My brother used to have a pair of beats, he would always brag about how great the sound was. I used a $25 pair of skullcandy... I was 12 or 13 and could still notice that my headphones were 10x better than his idk, like, $200 pair of beats.
