    Cheap

    After 2 years of maybe 2-3 hours of use per week, the leather that is covering the ear pad tore apart and it's not within warranty...good sound but very cheap product for that huge price tag. Never buying a beats product again.

    Ear cups material coming off

    My favorite pair of headphones I have ever owned and had zero complaints until the ear cup material started coming off on both sides. Only a year and a half old and gently used.

    Looks good, but that's about it...

    Although they look really nice, music sounds really muffled with these and they are very uncomfortable when listening for long periods. If you have an iPhone, connectivity is very easy and the battery lasts for a very long time compared to other headphones.

    Disappointed

    I was excited to try these out when I got them but after 5 months Bluetooth started disconnecting, and connecting again over and over it got annoying so I took them off reset them worked well after that. Then suddenly my right side wouldn’t work I only heard the left side it’s a bummer now I expected better quality of beats since it was pricey. Same thing with my Powerbeats³ Wireless. I mean they were great for working out but it’s not worth buying these anymore so I just got the AirPods.

    they hurt my head!

    I just got these free with the purchase of a Macbook Pro. I've had them on a few hours, off and on. The sound is fine, I guess, but they're so tight on my head / ears and there doesn't see to be any way to adjust them. It's actually painful and hot. Maybe they try to make a one-size-fits-all design that fits on little kids' heads? My head isn't enormous or anything. This is just a poor / cheap design that does not have any way of really adjusting the tension / tightness.

    Best headphones ever

    My husband has had his beats for years so I thought I would buy myself a pair. I’m so happy I did. Great quality, fit is perfect and terrific sound quality. I’m buying my granddaughter a pair for Christmas.

    loved them at first

    I use these headphones literally all the time, they were great for about a year, but the ear cup lining was coming out to reveal the foam so I would always have to push it back in, but starting a few weeks ago the sound in the right ear hasn't really been working and a lot of the time a loud painful crackle is coming out of it, really disappointing because they were so expensive and I have no idea whats happened to them.

    they're more promising than they end up being

    I got these beats with the education deal. They were not for free, I just got the price off my Mac which I had to pay for them. they were definitely not worth it. I charged them fully multiple times & wirelessly they lasted no longer than 3 hours, rather less. that happened multiple times. I'm very disappointed. I had them for a week! They never worked properly. I'm going to try to exchange them tomorrow at the apple store, after I had a talk with the support that was not helpful at all and they only told me, whether I was sure I charged them fully & if they were up to date, like, sorry... not worth it so far. also the same issue with my ears, like others have, they're very sore after I used these headphones.

    Beats Review

    I recently bought a pair of Matte Black, Beats Solo3 Wireless – On Ear Headphones. Below, I will go over my experience with them to hopefully provide you with the information you are looking for. Having owned beats for about 2 months now and I have had enough time to familiarize myself with they and can give an accurate analysis.
    Comfort
    When they arrived, the packaging was high quality and padded so it protected the headphones during transport. They come with a case for both the headphones and the charging cords. The charging cord case is especially beneficial because it prevents your cords from becoming entangled and frayed. They are on ear headphones with leather padding for comfort and sound insulation. They are sturdy and will remain in place while you exercise, work, study, etc. While they are comfortable for a while, any longer and they begin to make your outer ears sore. When you take them off you can feel the blood flow return to your ears from it being cut off by the headphones.
    Wireless
    They are wireless, which is one of the main reasons people buy these. They are incredibly easy to operate and uses Bluetooth to connect to multiple devices. They are super convenient if you own other Apple products like the iPhone, and Mac computers because it recognizes them instantly. It switches between devices easily and doesn’t get confused like other wireless headphones are known to do. They have an amazing range, you can have your phone two floors away and still be connected to the headphones. You don’t have to worry about disconnection that normally comes with wireless headphones. The most important aspects of the solos are the sound quality, it is perfect. It is not like other headphones where all you can hear is bass. It evenly spreads out the music, allowing you to hear all the instruments in a song without distorting the words. Overall, I would give the headphones 3 out of 5 stars because they are good quality but over priced.

    Awesome Headphones!

    These are hands down the best headphones I have ever owned, to include the Bose headphones I have. Sound is great, not bass heavy. Battery life is amazing! I can wear them for several hours and they stay comfortable. I would recommend the Beats Solo 3 to anyone looking for quality headphones!

    (Gives thumbs up)

    These things are great. They're really just a pair of headphones that are simple to use and have nice, simple and slimming design. They're durable and comfortable to use. I love being able to use mine, the buttons on the side make it easy to manage message and calls while jamming out.

    Cheaply made

    Great when they were new but basically fell apart after 7 months of very light use and apple said repairs wouldn’t be covered under warranty. Definitely not worth the price.

    Solo 3

    My fiancés gave this solo 3 headphones. I wanted to buy them for quite long time but money was tight. So, she suppose me with that. Long story short, it didn’t even last me One year the cushion start coming out. Trust me I take care of my stuff like they’re my body parts Very disappointed. Wish I could put a picture of it.

    A Solo Story

    Paid $400 for these. Love them to death but the fact that the leather comes out from the edges is very annoying. This appears to be a very common issue too. Also don't like the fact that they "need to be sent away for inspection" when it's clearly common. You can use a bank card to slide the leather back in but it's only a temporary fix.

    Worst headphones I've ever had (and I had a few).

    Got those for free when I purchased a Macbook in an Apple Store. I never had Beats before so I was excited to finally try them out. Comparing to my Bose QuietComfort, Beats are garbage. This is the worst audio performance I've ever experienced and I did test a lot of different headphones. I don't understand why these are so expensive and popular considering this low quality of sound. Sadly, there is no app or settings that allow you to change the EQ. Another thing is that while I was giving those a chance, my head and ears started hurting because of the poor design. It started hurting after 30 minutes so I wonder what kind of pain people have to be in just to have the B logo on their heads. Again, don't spend your money on badly designed headphones that don't even let you enjoy your music.

    Waste of money

    If you are looking for good headphones these are not the ones. These are over priced and they only have bass in the right ear. It doesn’t have bass in the left ear which really throws me off so i never use them. So now i wasted 250$ and i will never be able to get that money back. Disappointment.

    Makes my ear hurt, my ears turn red

    I hate these headphones because if I wear them longer than 10 mins, my ears start hurting because they are so tight and when I take them off, I see that my ears have turned red. Don’t waste your money on these badly designed headphones. The sound is good thou but THERE IS ALSO NO VOLUME BUTTON ON THE HEADPHONES...ABSOLUTELY HATE THESE. Don’t waste your money.There are better more comfortable headphones out there.

    Love/Hate

    I bought a Macbook Pro for school in Aug. 2017 and got these for free with the purchase... I was in love for the first 6 months. But then the material covering the cushions started to come off and it didn't take long after that for all of the foam cushioning to be revealed. I also noticed that the material was very thin and it looked poorly made. I'm honestly so mad about how fast they damaged. I used to have a pair of UrbanEars that I got on sale for $30 and they lasted me 3 years before damaging, but for some reason the Beats deteriorated much faster. And for the price they are, you should be able to wear them everyday for longer than 6 months without the material starting to fade and come undone. If they were made better I would say that they are a 5 star product, but because of how fast they deteriorated, I give them 2 stars.

    Definitely Not Worth The Original Price

    It was either this headphone or the Sony Wireless ones, now I’m reconsidering. I’m glad I purchased these while on sale because really and honestly they are not that good enough for $300.00+ due to low quality in sound, and the leaking once it hits highest volume. Wireless feature and design of the headphone makes it worthwhile but that’s just it. At the end of the day your just paying for the name.

    Great stuff. Like always

    Not used to writing reviews, but seriously these headphones deserve more than a 3 star average. These are my latest beats products purchased and I can't be any happier. Great sound quality and noise insulation. Also superior battery life. My solo 2 lasted good 3 years and so I expect these to do.
