  • 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 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.)

      Painful!!

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?

I can't stand to wear them for more than 15 - 20 minutes at max, after which they start to hurt my ears... Spend a little bit more for better comfort! Rating specific to comfort... They can sound great but if I can't stand to wear them then there's a big problem!

      Nice design, but issues with sound

About 4 months later in December I sent in my beats for a repair since I couldn't hear anything from the right side. Once I got my beats repaired they only worked for another 5 months before I went to the Apple store asking for a replacement. Two days after I came home from the Apple store I tried to listen to some music, and once again there was no sound out of the right side. The aesthetics of this product is quite nice however Apple needs to improve on the manufacturing of these products so that they last longer than 6 months at a time.

      Constant loss of sound in one speaker after repair.

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.

      Great sound and battery life but uncomfortable

Battery life greater then I have expected. Materials are great, even the cushion feels great. But I can't wear them more than 30 minutes. They become uncomfortable and you feel some kind of pressure on ears.

Just get wireless earbuds.
