    Growing on me

    I just received my Beats with the Mac I bought for university. At first I was skeptical, I had never liked on-ear headphones before and I have always heard negative things about build quality and sound from Beats. After 2 days of use I was pleasantly surprised, they are quite comfy and can be worn for a period of time. The build quality of them is alright, nothing special but they feel cheap for a $320 pair of headphones. My favorite feature is how seamlessly it works with all of my apple devices, I just turn the headphones on and they work. Now for my dislikes, I cannot stand how poor the noise isolation is. For $320 the headphones should have noise cancellation but its insulting to not have noise isolation. All in all if you are looking for a pair of headphones that works perfectly with your iphone and other apple devices look no further, if you are looking for a $320 headphone experience keep on shopping.

    Best headphones yet

    I just brought this beats and I was a little unsure if I should buy them because everyone told me the studio was better but once I got these it was the best. The beats had perfect sound and range. It also was there comfortable to use as well. I am very happy with my purchase

    Uncomfortably Tight With No Way to Adjust Pressure on Ear

    My daughter was very excited to get her new Beats Solo3Wireless On-Ear headphones to use with her new Mac for music production. After wearing them for a short time, less than 30 minutes, we were unpleasantly surprised that her ears started to ache. The headphones are really tight and press her earlobe too firmly against her head causing a lot of discomfort. While the headphones are adjustable, they only adjust to get longer, not wider, so there is no way to relieve the constant pressure on the ear. My husband and I both tried them on and agree they are too tight to wear for anything but a short amount of time. For short workouts where someone may want a really snug fit to keep it in place it would be very good, but for the more frequent application of listening to music or watching a movie where they are being worn for a longer period of time, a more adjustable option would be a lot more comfortable. It would have been better if we had gotten the over the ear model instead of the on ear version to relieve the constant tight squishing pressure of the padding on top of the ear.
