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.)
- Updated acoustics enhance clarity
- Streamlined lightweight design for improved comfort

Good sound but too tight
Their sound is definitely better than the solo HD headphones. But these are way too tight. They became uncomfortable very quickly Their sound is definitely better than the solo HD headphones. But these are way too tight. They became uncomfortable very quickly and didn't loosen up over time. I returned these to beats and went back to the slightly-inferior-sound-but-much-more-comfortable solo HDs. …

Beats Solo2 wireless-F - product performed below expectation
I love LOUD high quality music. Unfortunately, the Beats Solo2 and my iPad Air pair did not perform as expected.
Consequently, I I love LOUD high quality music. Unfortunately, the Beats Solo2 and my iPad Air pair did not perform as expected.
Consequently, I returned my Beats Solo 2 headphones (wireless) for a low end brand ($10.00). And yes, the low end brand performs
about the same as the $300.00 Beats (when used with my iPad).
ps..I did noticed a HUGE difference in performance when I paired the Beats Solo2 with another popular mobile device.
That being said, The Beats sound quality varies via the device its paired with. …

Beats Solo2 On-Ear Headphones Red
My son insisted on buying the Beats Solo2 On-Ear wired headphones with his Christmas money (when he did not get them as a gift). W My son insisted on buying the Beats Solo2 On-Ear wired headphones with his Christmas money (when he did not get them as a gift). We checked reviews before Christmas and found only good reviews saying that the new models since Apple took over Beats were better sounding and better quality construction. We got the headphones on 12/29/14. Now on 02/25/15, not even two months later, the sound on the right side is completely out. My son told me it started a day or two ago when it would start cutting out and he could reposition the headphones and get the sound back. But, now no matter what we do there is no sound on the right hand side. I re-checked reviews and we have found several citing the same issue with the right side losing sound. We expected better quality from a $200 set of headphones. We are extremely disappointed in the product. …

Trust me there are much better headphones out there. …
