    Good quality. Can’t wear them for more than 30 minutes tho, hurts after a while. Sometimes removing them for a minute help but they hurt a lot!

    Not worth the money

    Stay away from the headphones .Apple charge so much for the item & when you send the item in for repair they tell you it’s physically damaged but none showing...you have to take there word for it
    It’s not worth the money they don’t last

    Like many others, my experience with these head phones is that they hurt my ears badly. For those stuck with these poor quality headphones, one thing I did that helped was to extend out each headphone and gently bend them backwards. This will loosen them up and for me made them bearable.

    2nd Pair of Beats Solo Wireless

    I have owned 2 pairs of Beats solo wireless. Both pairs have broken. Just this morning the ear bud disconnected with wires coming out. This happened while I was sitting at my desk, I was not working out, moving, etc. The first pair stopped charging and would never come back on. I also had a pair of Beats Studio Wireless over-ear and the "over the ear part" came apart as well as the volume button, which became detached with wires etc. I really only use my beats at work. I am so disappointed with this product. I also, contacted support and my warranty ran out two months ago...but there was still nothing that could be done to help. Love the product but will never purchase again.

    Audiophile review

    This is MY honest review on Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones and I would like to say a couple things before I start the review, the first thing is that I would call myself a starting Audiophile as I listen to a lot of Audiophile brands like Sennheiser, Audio Technica, and a couple of other high audio brands and I enjoy the sound of the music when it's at it's finest and has a nice, clear yet powerful sound and of course Audiophiles will leave reviews on Beats by Dre and call them cheap, and poor sounding and those statements at that time were made before Apple started to make Beats by Dre. under the Apple brand name, but ever since Apple bought Beats the audio quality has jumped up with Apple Products like the MacBook, iMac, iPhone and iPad and now the headphone line up and here is my honest review.

    The sound quality is really good compared to what it use to be as I used the Beast Studio 2 Wireless and they just weren't very good and these Beats Solo3 fix that bad name that was sprayed onto Beats by critics, the build quality and design is really sturdy and they have a really nice design that stands out in public and gets people interested into them and sure they may look like fashion because they are but they are a good sounding pair of headphones, the only flaw/draw back is that there is sound leakage so if you are listening to them in a library or somewhere quiet people will hear the music and after a few hours of wearing them they start to get uncomfortable but that is how headphone is so it's a half-an-half situation and the sound leakage only occurs if you are listening to your music pretty loudly.

    The biggest and most best part of the review is the sound quality of the headphones and as I stated, it is good and really has improved compared to previous Beats like the Beats Studio 2 wireless and the Beats Solo3 Wireless, the sound has a much warmer and softer sound and filled sound compared to the hallow and cold sound that can only sound superb on certain genres, I listen to a lot of different genres and I have even listened to Beats competitor Bose and I personally believe these have passed Bose in sound quality as Bose has had a cold and shallow sound and truly isn't very loud and is prone to sound leaking like crazy and the Beats Solo3 have entered Sennheiser range some as I personally use the Sennhesier PXC 450 and Sennheiser IE 80 and noticed the sound can be comparable to the Beats Solo3 Wireless as both sound amazing and the Beats by Dre is climbing super close to that region of sound quality in my opinion, and here is why: The instruments used in songs like Alternative, Pop, Movie Soundtracks, Electronic,

    The Bass has been tuned back quite a lot than what it use to be, but it is no way no existence is still there but it does not overpower the mids, or highs, the highs are more clear like the vocals are there and I have to use a EQ as they sound a bit too high and I normally use the Hip-Hop and Electronic EQ which actually fixes that and I have to use the same EQ for my Sennheiser Headphones so that is really not a problem with the headphones themselves and just more of the way the music is coming out, the mids are much more clear and have a wider and better range of sound and the lows are mostly the same but a tad bit different, they still are there and are clear and maybe just a bit more clarity than before, overall amazing headphones!

    Good Headphones but bad design

    Overall I like the quality of the headphones, these are the best I've had so far. The downside of this is that my ears start hurting after an hr or so.

    Connectivity and sound good, but not comfortable

    Connectivity is great - Apple & Beats have simplified setup. I’m no audiophile, but I like the sound a lot.
    That said, these are the least comfortable headphones I have ever owned.

    Painful Over-Ear Headphones

    I now see why these were free when I purchased my new iMac. The sound is good but they hurt my ears after 30 minutes. They are worthless.

    Great wireless, good fit (for me) and Great Sound for Hip Hop and Gospel

    I got me Solo 3's about a week ago and I have been listening to them a couple hours a day. The wireless is amazing. I have not yet hit the range where they cut out. I love Hip Hop and Gospel, so the bass works just fine for me.

    I find them very comfortable, and I had all but given up on find on-ear or over ear headphones that would work for me. I have a very large head (just shy of an 8 hat size). Any headphones will be tight out me. The ear cups make all the difference and these are comfy.

    I should note, I rarely wear for more than an hour. It's possible that if I listened longer, I would not be some positive about the fit.

    My ears = Pain

    I have Beats Solo 2, and my ears are on fire. I tried to wear them during work but i have to constantly take them off because my ears are on fire. My ears are in so much pain it hurts. Did no one from the apple team wear the headphones for a day?

    Were great until they broke.

    At first I was happy with these headphones. Sounded great, had a good battery and awesome blutooth range. They were tight and weren't terribly comfortable, but not so bad I couldn't wear them for long periods of time. In less than a year of babying them, one of the hinges snapped and came apart. After seeing about getting them repaired, Apple told me the cost would be the same as buying a new pair. Will not be returning to Beats for headphones in the future.

    Too Painful to Wear! Shame on Apple!

    I got these headphones when I purchased my MacBook Pro, which cost me a pretty penny, so believe me I was excited to get something free out of the mix. Wireless, seemingly good sound quality...doesn’t matter when you can’t wear them for more than 10 minutes (literally, ten at the most) until your ears and head are sore, to the point I’ve taken medicine to ease the pain. I am a petite female between 18-24, and my head isn’t very large, so this should have been no problem with normal headphones. Plus, no USB-C charger option means another dongle for me. Shame on Apple for giving their customers a seemingly great gift for purchasing one of their expensive computers but skimping so much on the quality and design that they’re barely usable anyway. Incredibly disappointed.

    My beats make my ears hurt

    I don’t know when this occurred. I have a pair of Dr. Dre corded beads. They don’t make my ears hurt. My NEW APPLE BEATS SOLO make my ears and head hurt. They are too tight!!!!!
    I’m pulling them off every ten mins or so!!!

    Wonderful headphones.

    More than pleased with my beats solo3 headphones. The audio is clear, rich and full. The fit is comfortable and snug.

    Okay sound, but the pain is not worth it!

    I was initially excited to get these with my new MacBook Pro, and immediately put them on after opening the box. I listened and thought ‘Wow, these sound almost as good as my Skullcandy Crushers’. In 20 minutes, my right ear was in intense pain, and my left was already becoming sore. I though about how much more comfortable my Skullcandys were for 4 times cheaper. I simply can’t fathom how these highly-acclaimed $300 headphones could be a cause for so much pain — and I’m not the only one! Since these were free I’ll probably give them away to someone with tiny ears, and just buy wireless Skullcandy Crushers and enjoy pain-free listening. I’m not impressed with these at all.

    Amazing headphones!

    I was able to get a pair of these for free with the purchase of a MacBook with the back to school deal! These are very high quality headphones and they work great with my iPhone 7 especially since I don't have a headphone jack! These are amazing

    Most Uncomfortable headphones ever

    I think these headphones sound great, but they are way too tight. I can wear them for 10min at most. After 10min they are hurting my ears so badly that I can't keep them on. These are terrible. What engineer designed these. Was there no QC (quality control) on this product. Very disappointing for $300 headphones.
