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.

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 …

Great pair of 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. …

The truth(4/5 because of price)
So, to begin, I'm an audiofile. I know what good sound quality sounds like. I bought these from a radio shack but I decided to lea So, to begin, I'm an audiofile. I know what good sound quality sounds like. I bought these from a radio shack but I decided to leave a review on Apple Store for the sake of all buyers(now that apple owns beats). Mine are white.
Build quality- impressed. 9/10. These are EXTREMELY flexible and sturdy. They won't break on you like the old solos.
Comfort- very soft ear pads. They mold on your ears. Tight headband. Soft rubber under band. 6/10 tight headband to soft ear pads cancel each other out.
Sound quality- I'm impressed. Beats is known to have bad sound but good looks. The truth is that these are a big change. The old solos were really bad. These are so much better than the old ones. The bass doesn't drown out the rest of the music. The mids are ok. So are the highs. These were made with reduced bass and clearer mids and highs.
To end this up, yes I had many more options when it came to headphones. I had better sound options. I chose the beats. Some say you choose to pay for sound or style. I paid for style. I was not disappointed. Yes they could be better. Yes they are PRICY. But there not "bad".
If you plan on buying them, be aware that there are better headphones for better prices, but these aren't bad. …
