A complete update of Beats' most popular model, the Beats by Dr. Dre Solo2 headphones offer improved acoustics, a wider range of sound, and enhanced clarity for all the music on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. They also deliver even greater comfort thanks to a streamlined, lightweight, and durable design.
Feel a new kind of sound
The Solo2 headphones have a more dynamic and wider range of sound, with a clarity that can bring you closer to what the artist intended you to hear. You'll feel the higher fidelity audio no matter what type of music you play.
Starting at the center of the flexible headband, the frame is curved even more to enhance the custom-fit feeling. The earcups are ergonomically angled to complete this natural fit, and they pivot for optimal comfort and sound delivery. The earcups' premium material also helps dissipate heat and minimize sound leakage.
Fast-flowing curves, a lack of visible screws, and easy foldability exemplify the sleek aesthetic of Beats Solo2. That thoughtful approach extends to engineering and material selection, which together resulted in a more durable headphone that stands up to extended use.
No need to reach for your iOS device
With the color-matched RemoteTalk cable, you can change songs, adjust the volume, and even take calls without having to reach for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. (Functionality may vary by device.)

Small headphones, big sound,

Love love love my new grey solo2 beats. It was love at first sight, MAD LOVE at first listen - these guys aren't noise cancelling but you could have fooled me into thinking they were. Lightweight, great sound, a HUGE upgrade from the original solos (not even a comparison). Overall they just seem much better quality.
CONs: Not a con for me since I have an average sized (female) head and these fit like a glove. I've read some reviews saying they are too tight and I think some bigger headed people may want to get the Studio instead, these are perfect for me though! …

AMAZING FIRST BUY!!
I've always wanted a pair of Beats but the price was a little out of my budget. Then i stumbled upon these at the San Tan Village I've always wanted a pair of Beats but the price was a little out of my budget. Then i stumbled upon these at the San Tan Village store in AZ, tried them, and fell in love. it's like i found the pair that were right for me, the black/red ones. and for the price, it wasn't a bad investment at all. Now my wife wants them in pink! Sound is amazing! I am a percussionist and have been for about 15 years now, the bass is perfect, not too boomy and distorted, and certainly not silent at all. I even use them when i drum. Thumbs up! …

Solo2: They sound good, feel good, and look good
These headphones are great. They're comfortable, light, and provide accurate sound reproduction. They provide an adequate amount o These headphones are great. They're comfortable, light, and provide accurate sound reproduction. They provide an adequate amount of noise-reduction and you can wear them for hours. Another added benefit is the microphone and volume controls. These come in handy when I need to jump on a call while I'm on the desk and everyone thinks they sound just fine. While for the price there are better "audiophile-grade" headphones out there, these are well worth the price for the quality, versatility and comfort alone. I wasn't a fan of the previous Solo, but the new Solo2 is a true contender to other headphones in this price range. …
