    Solo 3 experience

    I read and saw a lot of reviews of these headphones until a bought a par, they sound good and look good. But they are not worth the 300 dólares, I’ve got to say too the 40 hr battery is crazy awesome but don’t have high expectations on sound because it’s good but not crazy.

    Uncomfortable and Inconvenient

    Pros: Wireless headphones that are compact and easy to carry around. Cons: Very uncomfortable and rather inconvenient. The ear muffs are way too small and tight (I am a woman with a small head and average sized ears). I don't wear them often as they give me big headaches by squishing my ears and creating lots of pressure around my head. Also, I have to remove my earrings every time I use them (tiny stud earrings that babies wear), as the stems dig into the back of my head, leaving uncomfortable purple marks because they are so tight. The current design is also very flawed for women and men with medium/long hair. My hair constantly gets snagged around the base of each earmuff (there's a gap between the earmuffs and the beats logo). I try to tie my hair back every time I use them, but I still end up ripping out 10 hairs or so when I take them off... I was expecting better product.

    Probably the best out there

    The Solo3 does my job on the long move with amazing battery life and sound quality. Like Apple Products, I feel this product to be really close to my heart which I feel everyone would feel once they start using it. - Cheers to Beats and Apple for giving me this wonderful product.

    Unreliable. Avoid.

    After a few wears the padding disintegrated. Cheap glue not stiched. They blame swear but I don’t exercise in them.

    Other major problem is getting them to pair. They refuse to pair to my iPhone 6s.

    Could have done better

    Was very anxious on trying the “improved” beats solo 3 wireless but after a couple of days was highly disappointed. I’ve owned beats in the past and this is the first time where after Apple took over they reproduce a highly poor design. 1) material- I’ve owned the studios 1, and 2, solo 2, Powerbeats 2 all worked and lasted like a charm, first time the ear cushions started coming off so I sent them for a repair thinking maybe it’s just defective but also came off on the replacement pair along with the band. 2) sound quality- I always enjoyed the bass on the previous models but I assume after the upgrade to the W1 chip it was removed and now it has an alright sound but not worth $299. 3) grip- taking them to the gym was one of the main reason why I got them because I always enjoyed the isolation it offered but immediately regretted it, it will not stay put after sudden movement becoming unreliable. My opinion on these, it’s bulky for no reason will probably recommend the Powerbeats 3, will get them myself but I’m stuck with these because I’m out the return policy. Wouldn’t mind if Apple will just swap my pair for a pair of Powerbeats.

    These Headphones are poor quality

    The headphone are not worth the price. The sound is not balanced between the left and right ear. Your left ear will be in severe pain post 15 min of use. The headband is too rigid. I am blown away with the poor quality of the beats solo3 - not work more than 20$. Do NOT waste your money. I wish I had read the reviews before the purchase!!

    Faulty Product

    Sound quality - Perfect, Comfortableness - Perfect, Wireless - Perfect. The only problem i have with this product is in the cord. After buying a brand new pair from the AT&T store with my Iphone 8 plus i proceeded to test them. After I get through all the packaging the headphones and bag, I open the lower compartment where the cords and carbine hook is located. I then take out the aux cord to inspect it, and as i pull it out, the back casing where the microphone and main control on the cord falls off. The wire mic and volume switch still works and everything but it definitely isn't a professional look and though I do not mind the small inconvenience I do believe that the product should have a higher production value if it costs 299.99.

    Amazing

    The headphones are amazing the quality of them is great, I hate having wires connected to everything so beats have got me to listen to so much more music then I would nearly listen to and I have found new songs I love as well one of the best things I have ever got I would buy then again if I could the charging time is great to I can have a shower and they will be charged up and ready to go! Great product

    Wow

    This is my third pair of Beats, I initially started off with the PowerBeats and each pair hurt my ears after wearing them for a long time. I was skeptical about buying these "GIANT" ear muffs for 300.00 All I have to say after finally breaking down and purchasing a pair is WOW. They are so comfortable they hug your head comfortably and the sound is incredible. It tunes everyone around you out.

    LOVE THEM!

    Upgraded to the Solo3 WIreless from AKG headphones and they're simply the best I've ever had. Pairing with my iPhone 7 is a near-magic-half-sec-process and audio quality is great, but the absolute best thing about them is the amazing battery life!

    Excellent quality and sound + I have a question

    Excellent quality and sound. I love the headphones I just purchased. I have a question, hoping someone can help me resolve the issue quickly. I was able to pair my headphone with my MacBook Pro, iPhone 6, iMac 27 (2010), iPad 2. How do I turn the internal speakers off on the MacBook Pro and on the iMac when I connect the Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones via Bluetooth? Thanking you in advance for your help.

    Distance and Battery

    I will admit I am bit biased towards beats since the partnership with Monster I have literally put nothing else but beats on my ears I think everything else is inferior epically in style but in other aspects as well. That said it doesn't mean I think these are a gift sent from god himself they do have their flaws now I have a 2016 MacBook Pro (the newest one at this time) and though it advertises seamless streaming with apple products and a long wireless range that is not always the case. It is almost as if the are interruptions once your reach distance but then it quickly recalibrates and resumes normal streaming I don't know maybe this is a change in frequency once I walk a said distance away but who knows. The 40 Hours I'm not so sure about that. it does not turn off automatically after a certain period of time without sound coming through but it can usually stay on for hours without me knowing so I can't be a true judge. Now its call quality is perfect without the cable mic and the sound is superb as expected other than what I had mention I have no qualms with the product. I would recommend it if you are just an average Jane or Joe or have a taste for rap or Bass heavy music but take care of these they are luxury and like most luxury items treat them with care.

    I've owned beats b4 but ....

    I've owned MULTIPLE beats earphones over the years; but I can safely say that these headphones are at the TOP of the mountain when it comes to sound quality, comfort and style. My biggest issue with the earphones was the Bluetooth range and how songs would ALWAYS skip when I went for a run or tried to move too far away from my phone. The new W1 (Chip) was exactly what these products needed in order to deliver a more smoother, crisp experience for your music needs. Bravo Apple and beats.

    Disappointed

    Got these free with a MacBook Pro, the sound quality isn't as good as other good brand headphones. I find the standard earphones you get with your iPhone has a better sound quality and clarity than these.

    Awesome battery life

    These things are amazing for battery life. They sound great and feel sturdy and don't hurt the ears. The only thing that's a con is that it charges with micro-USB instead of USB-C.

    It's good, when it's working!!

    I am so disappointed with this product. When you pay more expensive in a Beats compared to similar products from other brands, you expect it to work!! I have it for less than one year and it's the third time I have to take it to the assistance. This is very annoying!!
