    Do not recommend

    I got these headphones free with my MacBook. Honestly the sound quality is pretty decent its pretty much what you expect but nothing amazing. The problem with these headphones is they hurt your ears after wearing them for 30 minutes. After wearing them my ears hurt a lot. I would not recommend these headphones based on that.

    Good Sound, Painful Listening

    Got these headphones for free for a promotion with the purchase of a macbook for school. While the sound quality is actually pretty good IMO, they start to hurt my ears after roughly a half hour of listening. As such I use them for the gym and not much else. Do not pay the sticker price for these, as there are much more comfortable head sets out there that sound as good or better.

    Kind of painful

    Great sound quality but I can't wear them for longer than 20 minute without them hurting my ear. Probably will not buy again.

    I guess you could say the sound quality is nice but it isn't worth the pain. The headphones have caused me ear aches both on the internal and external ear. I can't wear for more than a half hour without having to take them off. The headphones are just uncomfortable overall.

    Solo 2s

    These headphones sound great, however they're incredibly uncomfortable. 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

    In August I bought my beats with a new laptop for college last summer, and I enjoyed the beats while they worked. 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.

    Beats Solo 2

    Just okay in terms of sound but design wise I think this is the coolest looking headphones in the market. However, it does hurt your ear after just 15-30 minutes using them. I love the design but it is so painful to wear. These headphones should not be priced for $259. This is way too expensive for just an okay quality sound. Again, design wise, I LOVE THEM.
