    Great headphone quality and sound, not good for longwear

    I bought my MacBook Pro recently and they came with a pair of Beats Solo3 wireless headphones. I was so excited to show them off, because they are aesthetically a very nice looking pair of headphones. I use them every day for Netflix, facetime, music and much more. The quality of sound is superb, while at the same time blocking out any outside noises. However, the only flaw is that after 30 minutes of use my ears begin to throb incessantly. The pain is about a 6 on a scale of 1-10. I noticed this within the first week of use. The cartilage of my outside ear will just feel very sore and throb for quite a while if I wait too long to take a break from the headphones. This may be due to them being tight around my head, which is desirable but since they are non adjustable, it is unavoidable to experience ear pain. I even have a relatively small head, so I can’t imagine someone with a large head wearing these for very long. Great sound quality, poor engineering when it comes to flexibility and comfort. I still reccommend buying these headphones, just buyer beware that they aren’t very good for long sessions.

    Sound only comes out of one side of the headphones

    This is my first pair of beats headphones. Very expensive purchase so was expecting them to work well.
    They are super comfy, reduce outside noise and super simple to connect with my phone, just disappointing that only one side has sound coming out of it. Won’t buy again, will be asking for a refund.
