Monster Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones were selling for rock-bottom prices on Black Friday -- we even saw a pair of these once-overpriced headphones, which originally sold for $350, for $115. But headphone purists are dismayed at the sound of these flashy cans, mocking their powerful bass as overpowering and artificial. If you feel that way and you're listening to these headphones on an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, here's how to equalize their sound to your liking.
By default, iOS devices don't offer the kind of equalizer you would see in a recording studio, giving you control over each tiny slice of the sound spectrum. But they do give you a couple of dozen easy-to-select choices for sound equalization. Among the 24 available settings, you'll probably find one that pleases your ears, not only with Beats Studio headphones, but with any audio playback device you'd like to tailor to your particular tastes.
Follow along in the gallery here, where we show you how to find the settings, and then you can try them out for yourself:
