Simple and form and materials, the Wood Studio House is designed to be eco-friendly in every aspect, from the direction it faces to the placement of the windows. It’s set on a hill above a town north of Barcelona, and built on top of an older structure to minimize its environmental impact. The wood that both frames the house and is used to clad the exterior and interior walls is sourced from the Catalan Pyrenees, there are solar panels on the roof for electricity, a small beehouse for honey, and water tanks that collect from the roofs and exterior pavement, in turn using it for irrigating the lawn and organic kitchen garden. The interior is similarly simple, with stark white floors and cabinetry contrasting with the natural walls, ceiling, and black fireplace with integrated wood storage.

The Good The Beats Studio Wireless is a very comfortable over-the-ear wireless headphone that offers excellent sound for a Bluetooth headphone and features active noise-canceling technology. The headphones fold up into a more compact form factor and battery life is decent at 12 hours of wireless listening. They also worked well as a wireless headset for making cell-phone calls.
The Bad Expensive; if the integrated rechargeable battery dies, the music dies.
The Bottom Line While it’ll cost you a hefty $380, the Beats Studio Wireless is an excellent wireless Bluetooth headphone.
