More on the Beats Studio Wired Over-Ear Headphones:

The world’s most famous headphone has been completely redesigned and reimagined. The new Beats Studio is lighter, sexier, stronger, and more comfortable, with precision sound, Adaptive Noise Canceling, a 20-hour rechargeable battery, and RemoteTalk. It has all the energy and excitement you expect from Beats, plus a powerful, reengineered sound.

Features

Feel Your Music

The Beats Acoustic Engine makes your listening experience intimate, personal, and real. Our signature DSP software is designed to generate the emotional experience that Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine, and some of the music industry’s greatest rock, hip-hop, pop, electronic, and R&B producers want you to feel. This is how music would sound if the artist could play it back for you in person.

Put the World on Mute

Silence the noise from your daily commute or the drama from your loud neighbors with our no-compromise dual-mode Adaptive Noise Canceling. When you’re listening to music, ANC automatically strikes a balance between your music and the world outside. If you only want to use the headphone to cancel external noise, the ANC-only mode automatically increases the level of noise cancellation to create a quieter world.

What Batteries?

Dead batteries can kill your vibe in a flash. The New Beats Studio fixes this with a 20-hour rechargeable battery. To prevent wasting energy, the Auto On/Off feature turns off the headphone when you unplug, and with the visible Battery Fuel Gauge, you always know how much juice is available. Forget specialized adapters; the New Studio can be charged via micro USB almost anywhere.

Lighter, Stronger, and More Comfortable

When we reimagined our legendary headphone, we designed it like a beautiful sports car and made disciplined choices. We streamlined the New Beats Studio with fast curves, smooth surfaces, and no visible screws. We shaved 13 percent off the original weight and gave it a lighter, stronger, and more comfortable headband. We created softer ear cups and an ergonomic bellow to create a flexible, custom fit for every head shape, so you can keep your music all to yourself.

Today, Ultimate Ears has announced that its well regarded UE Boom Bluetooth speaker has won a 2014 Gold International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) from the Industrial Designers Society of America (ISDA). Sitting atop the entertainment category, this marks the very first IDEA for Ultimate Ears as a brand but the fourth design award for the UE BOOM itself. The award is given out to excellence in product design, sustainability, packaging, concept and more. Today’s announcement points out that only 27 of the 2,000 entries received a Gold IDEA this year.

The popular Bluetooth speaker has also received great user reviews and has recently seen a $20 price drop on Amazon, Best Buy and the official UE site. While we have seen the unit for less, they rarely go on sale and not usually with all the color options available. Apple.com is still charging $199.95. Outside of pre-owned options and sketchy retailers, this is the current lowest price available.

The BOOM is designed to “change standard one-directional sound,” with a 360-degree experience that blasts sound out in every direction. It also features a 50 foot range to wirelessly change songs, adjust the volume and take phone calls. You’ll find 15 hours of battery life and the possibility of linking two of them together via the UE BOOM mobile app. For a complete rundown, head over to our review of the Logitech UE Boom and Mini Boom.

Silver and Bronze IDEA winners in the entertainment category included the NOOK Glow Light, Beats Studio Headphones, Jambox Mini and more. You can see the rest of this year’s winners on the official IDSA site.
