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.)

nice rugged set of headphones.....
I purchased this set of headphones through another store, and sound quality is really good.these are made much better than the pre I purchased this set of headphones through another store, and sound quality is really good.these are made much better than the previous ones, they fit nice and tight on your ears, and the 53 inch cord with the control works great, i use them i pod shuffle and all my other i pods and i pads work great on all. I have also the Monster Inspirations and Bose quiet comfort head phones plus others, these sound just as good, I find only thing is wearing them a long time like an hour they kinda make your ears a little sore because they do fit tight, but thats not a problem, well worth the money, I feel …

Really, really good headphones...
The Beats Solo2 are amazing! The blue glosse is shiny and sexy, but you can see fingerprints, dust, and oil as well. The ear cups The Beats Solo2 are amazing! The blue glosse is shiny and sexy, but you can see fingerprints, dust, and oil as well. The ear cups are made out of a comfortable leather, but after a 30-45 minutes, they start to make your ears uncomfortable. I like that they are durable, the hinges are made of a metal, and that they have a nice carrying case with a carabiner. I like that they fold up as well. The sound quality is amazing, and it works most for electronic, rap, and pop music. Still good with rock. I really like the on-ear design as well. Overall, the Beats Solo2 are a great headphone choice! …

Great pair of headphones
I don't use headphones too often, but that may have changed with these headphones. As far as sound quality goes, I think they soun I don't use headphones too often, but that may have changed with these headphones. As far as sound quality goes, I think they sound great, especially for what they are. I actually had a pair of the Beats Studios, and I think I like these better. I would recommend to go for the studios over the solo2 if you wear glasses a lot, as they are not as comfortable over the tops of glasses, but they may break in a little after I use them so we will see on that. In the end I would definitely say worth the money, the fact that they fold up quite small to pack away nicely makes they convenient to carry around as well. …
