    Broken Right ear

    • Written by from spokane

    I have read a lot of reviews that say the same thing that happened to me. Its been 6 months and the right ear stopped producing any sound. It is a common occurrence I am seeing, maybe the new solo2 wireless are better? hopefully these ones can at least be replaced under the warranty.

    Really, really good headphones...

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    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 product but...

    • Written by from New york

    Sound quality is amazing and the looks are everything but ugly. But 8 months in, with the headphones and the right speaker justs stops working! Its everything disappointing because we spend a lot of money a pair of headphone for it to suddenly stop working. Im looking to get the studios but im very hesitant and worried it might stop working just like the solo2.

    Great pair of headphones

    • Written by from Muskegon

    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)

    • Written by from burtonsville

    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".

    Overall 8/10.

    If you plan on buying them, be aware that there are better headphones for better prices, but these aren't bad.

    Happy So Far

    • Written by from Orlando

    I wanted to get a a pair of on-ear headphones fro my iPhone and began looking around. To be honest I wasn't going to consider the Beats Solo2 even though they were in my price range. When the Beats headphones first came out they seemed to be more for rap given the huge bass response. Anyhow I tried the Beats Solo2 and was pleasantly surprised. I thought I was going to go with the comparable Bowers - Wilkins. However, on Black Friday Apple was selling the Solo2 with a free $25.00 iTunes gift card. I figured what the heck I was only using the phones with my iPhone and not my stereo system. I purchased the Solo2 in blue which I liked instead of black. I tried the headphones with Beethoven's 3rd Symphony and was impressed with the mid-range, the bass was pretty good but not overpowering, and the phones handle the high end as well. Very nice sound. Later I listened to some Charles Mingus and again I was impressed with the sound. Next the Stones, Exile on Main Street and some Allman Bros., nice. I am currently listening to HJ Lim's Complete Beethoven Sonatas, nice. I don't consider myself a true audiophile but I like these headphones. The fit seems a bit snug but not a reason to return and I suspect the phones will feel better with continued use. All in all I think these phones are a great value if you are looking for good sounding headphones for your iPhone.

    WORTH IT!!

    • Written by from Madison

    At first I was a bit torn on purchasing these headphones simply because I had heard of the muffled vocals people had experienced with the Beats Solo (the original) when Monster was producing them. However, after reading several reviews online and experiencing the sound quality with the new Beats Solo 2 at in-store displays, I decided to purchase them. I attribute the majority of the problems people experienced with the original Beats Solo to the manufacturer, which at the time was Monster. Monster is known for cutting corners and for using the cheapest materials while charging their customers an exuberant amount for their junk. They should just stick to making cables and stay out of the audio business. I have gone through two pairs of Monster DNA headphones (both lasted only 3 months before becoming useless), so I feel more confident with my purchase now more than ever now that Beats by Dr. Dre is no longer affiliated with Monster and are now an Apple product. Thus far, I am very happy with my purchase. The base is not bloated and the clarity is perfect. The build-quality has vastly improved as well. Some people have complained that the fit is too tight, but I have not experienced this and in fact welcome it since I like to be active and I take my music with me everywhere. Beats Solo 2 is well worth it!!

    nice rugged set of headphones.....

    • Written by from Columbus

    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 sound and design

    • Written by from Toronto

    These headphones are amazing with great sound and great design. Few months ago, I wanted to get the first generation solo but didn't like the sound. Looked at the reviews of the solo 2 and decided to give it a shot. And voila... I am enjoying every beat of my collection!

    A little pricey but they are worth!
