    I had these headphones for Christmas 2012 and in the last 8 months haven't stopped loving them. The audio and effect is amazing. A great buy

    Probably not worth the money...

    • Written by from ATHELSTONE

    I purchased these headphones a while back and when I first used them, there were no issues with them whatsoever. However, even though I was placing them back in its case every time I was done with them, not handling them roughly at all and storing it in a safe place at all times, the right side stopped working completely.

    Seeing as it was still under warranty, I sent that pair back and got them replaced. And what happened? The exact same thing. I rang up Apple again but they said it was no longer their responsibility to replace them for me again, and to contact Beats themselves. Beats said to contact where I purchased them from, Apple.

    Not happy.

    Brilliant

    • Written by from Upton upon Severn

    These headphones are probably one of things I use most in my life. They work really well with a Mac's high end sound card and also very well whilst travelling with an iPad or iPhone. I use them with everything from Music Creation on Cubase and Logic to going for a run or flying to America. An amazing pair of headphones. Big upgrade from the beats earphones.

    Really!!??

    • Written by from Decatur

    These are terrible y'all. Get real headphones like the sony mdr-7506 headphones... They don't have as much bass as these, but they are evenly balanced... Beats by dre headphones are not balanced, and if they were, their bass wouldn't be so strong... But if you want strong bass, then go ahead and waste your money on beats by dre...

    • Written by from lancaster

    they really hurt my ears, like excruciating pain to my ears. great sound. the adjuster gets loose and even on the smallest adjustment they still slide of my head now. i would not recommend getting them i am so disappointed in my purchase. (not internal pain by the way)

    Great sound But...

    • Written by from Woking

    Got these For birthday and was really pleased but after a while they started to really hurt my ears.The Extendable parts become loose after a while as well.But the sound is amazing and really crisp and good bass.
    Although the sound was great I recommend the beats by Dr dre studio as they are much more comfortable and the same sound quality As the solo HD and have more features like noise cancelling etc.
    Overall great sound but would definitely get studios instead.

    Horrible Muffled Sound

    • Written by from Atlanta

    I got a pair of these headphones for christmas and the sound is HORRIBLE! Its a very odd muffled sound of the person singing, I can mainly only hear the music and some background singing. When I press down the middle button on the cord, thats the only time I can hear a clear nice sound. These headphones are too expensive to have to hold down a play button in order to hear good music the entire time.

    Beats By Dr Dre Solo HD Smartie Blue

    • Written by from Fort Mill

    These headphones are sure to stand out in a crowd. The light blue color really pops out and has a fantastic smooth finish. They seem very durable and scratch resistant especially with the soft signature beats carrying case. The most important part of these headphones is not the looks, but sound. The sound quality is for sure, the best I have ever heard. Many say that the sound is drowned out by the bass, but it is very balanced and has a clean crisp sound. I tend to listen to pop music, British pop, and some rap. And for all of them the sound quality is amazing. In some songs you can even hear the artist breathing in between verses. Overall these headphones are fantastic and I highly recommend them.
    Pros: looks, carrying case, and sound quality
    Cons: price is a bit steep but if you have the money I would still recommend them

    Sound quality ???? Beats Solo HD cord issue

    • Written by from Prosper

    Bought a pair of the Solo Hd for my daughter for Xmas at this price I had to try them out. I am a extreme audiophile and want to hear for myself. This is going to sound strange.. I used the supplied beats cord in my iPhone 5 as instructed the sound as many described was muffled could hardly hear the vocals tried every EQ setting nothing..... Poor at best. I then thought I try to turn the cord around and see if any difference when I did oh my!!! I had to hold down the pause \ play button on the cord set the sound was then and only then what you would expect of a 200 dollar pair of head phones?? Anyone else try this...

    Don't let the high price tag fool you

    • Written by from Linkoping

    Sorry to say, but the sound on these headphones are worth a maxium of $50. They provide a bassy sound with a lot of punch, but the mids and highs totally lacks detail. A one word description of the sound is muffled! You should expect a lot more from headphones in this price range. I regret this purchase and it was a complete waste of money.

    OK

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    These phones are ok at best. I love the design and comfort of the ear pads. Bass response is amazing but, voices and snares are heard behind everything. It sounds like if the singers are behind a wall singing. Again, love the design, hate the sound.

    terrible, uncontrolled far too expensive

    • Written by from Singapore

    Simply put these, and almost all beats by Dr Dre are pure awful. They look good, i'll give them that. Beyond that there is nothing good about these headphones.

    The bass notes are so exaggerated it is unbelievable, i realise people like a lot of bass but this isn't even good bass. it is just a muddle of blurry uncontrolled booming bass. The massive bass is then followed but utterly recessed mids.

    Quite how these are ever called studio monitors i don't know mix a piece of music with these and it will be so completely ruined it's not even funny.

    I wouldn't pay $50 for these let alone the $300+.

    Please people there are much better ways to spend $300 on headphones. If you like big bass there are plenty of offerings from the likes of TDK, Audio Technica and even a noontech zorro which is pretty much the solo's physical clone but leaves it in the dust when compared audio wise and costs half as much.

    Disappointing cracking sound!!!

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    I purchased the White Solo HD headphones, and after putting them on fresh out of the box they started cracking from one side when I would rotate my head. I had to go to the apple store to exchange them for a different pair of white ones and the same problem kept occurring on 3 different pairs! Until I tried the Red Limited Edition and I have NO problem with those! Im probably just out of luck with the white ones because my friend has the white ones and his dont crack....... But other than that annoying experience, they are Awesome Headphones!!!!!

    Great looks and feel. Good sound quality as well. Some listening fatigue though about 1 1/2- 2 hours of listening time. Tight press can cause soreness around ear rim.
