Beats Solo2 On-Ear Headphones - Black

  • Overview

    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.

    Custom comfort

    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.

    Streamlined design

    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 result in a more durable headphone that stands up to extended use.

    No need to reach for your iOS device

    With the colour-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.)

      £170 of disappointment!

      Before I say why I've given 1 star I will happily admit that the sound system is amazing and everything but I'm so disappointed with the durability of the produ Before I say why I've given 1 star I will happily admit that the sound system is amazing and everything but I'm so disappointed with the durability of the product. My father bought this product for me as a congrats gift for passing my GCSE's and getting into college; but not even 6 months passed and the right channel had completely gone. How I have no idea as I'd always treated my beats with care. With this I thankfully found the receipt and took it back and got it replaced which was great. After that I was more concious of it happening and took even more care of the headset. But just recently the same thing has happened to my replacement beats; the right channel has gone again! You'd think that for paying £170 you'd get an amazing product with a long lasting life time. NOPE. Hopefully, this Friday I'll get my fathers money back and invest in an actual headset that's reliable for the price of £170!

At first I thought it was the cable, but then I did some research and found that it was a very common problem. On a apple support form I found this (The main issue with the new Solo 2.s is that the wire is glued into place and over time the wire losses contact with the speaker. This is what causes the issue with the beats no working properly.) I can't even contact the company to see if they can be repaired. I have a 2 year warranty with my headset.

My ears hurt after 10-15 minutes of wearing, regardless of how I adjust the headband. Extremely unpleasant - what's the point of headphones that sound great but are utterly unwearable?

      Uncomfortable and Painful!

      I have a small head and small ears and they don't feel tight when I wear them but after 30 minutes or even less my ear hurts from being pressed into my skull. A I have a small head and small ears and they don't feel tight when I wear them but after 30 minutes or even less my ear hurts from being pressed into my skull. And when I take them off after having worn them for a while it's like all this pressure has been lifted off my head. Not worth all the money if I can't even stand to wear them, sound is good though but still not good enough to make me endure the ear pain

      PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

      Firstly, I'd like to clarify that I have never written an online review before, but after my experience with this product, I thought it might be helpful to give Firstly, I'd like to clarify that I have never written an online review before, but after my experience with this product, I thought it might be helpful to give my two cents. PROBLEMS: 1. There is a persistent quality control issue with these headphones as evidenced by various reviews across the web. The audio in one headphone will eventually stop working altogether. This occurred with my first pair after approximately 14 months. The second pair - a measly 8 months. The initial pair wasn't covered by warrantee for repair or replacement, so I was out of luck. Instead of simply buying another brand, I decided to just get a replacement pair. Another ~$200 and 8 months later, the same problem rears its ugly head. This time I figured, "No problem. It's covered since it's been less than one year". Not so much. I was told at my local Apple store that due to a small superficial crack on the outer casing, the electronic repair wasn't covered. The employee conceded that the crack had NOTHING to do with the faulty sound problem and offered to repair them for $180! For that money, I could just buy a new pair - a better quality pair I might add. 2. These are WAY overpriced. The casing is cheap, flimsy plastic that is easily cracked and damaged. For less money, you can find a much sturdier construction that will last much longer. 3. The sound is not balanced to 'true'. For instance, certain kinds of music, especially classical, sounds like a mussy mess with very little crispness or detail coming through. I knew this when I first purchased these headphones and didn't particularly mind as I listen to a lot of rap and use in-ear headphones for rock, folk, classical. While they sound quite good when playing contemporary rap that uses a lot of sub bass, they are substandard to just dreadful for other genres. SUMMARY: I'm very disappointed with this product. I made the stupid decision of buying them a second time, but will NEVER purchase a product by BEATS ever again. I've given up on Apple customer service at this point as well. I've spent thousands with Apple in the last two years and to be told that a persistent electronic problem that is clearly due to quality control cannot be repaired due to a crack in the fragile casing is the last straw. Apple seems to have invested all their resources into marketing and growing their brand prestige at the expense of quality and functionality at this point. PLEASE..BUY ANOTHER BRAND. THESE ARE TRASH

      Constant loss of sound in one speaker after repair.

      Having same experience as another reviewer.

Sound is very good, but we have two pairs and both have had the right headphone stop working in a few months if light use. After repairs it has returned. Obviously a poor design or a manufacturing quality issue that they should address. We paid a premium price but this is not a premium product due to its poor reliability.
