    Avoid this headphone!

    The sound quality of this headphone is terrible. It is not of sturdy construction and the materials are not of high caliber. Do not waste your money on this headphone. I returned mine and purchased JBL headphones instead.

    The. Best. Ever.

    - incredible sound quality
    - long range for bluetooth connectivity (i left my phone in the kitchen, and took the trash out to the end of the road - approx 50 yards -
    without a single blip in sound)
    - battery life is insane, i use them everyday and charge them maybe once a week
    - snug fit and easy to connect to all my iOS and macOS devices
    - 10/10 would recommend and buy again

    Poor Sound Quality and Made of Poor Materials

    I don't know if i'm unlucky or if Beats' headphones are just made of cheap materials. At the first glance, it looks pretty and seems that the materials are good but after 6 months of little use, the leather just started peeling of both sides. Then it began having charging problems until it just stopped charging. Very disappointing. A similar thing happened to when I bought the Solo3. Definitely not buying Beats' headphones again.

    Very impressed. I was a little hesitant to buy given the price point, but I'm very glad I did. From the airport to the gym to home, from music to movies to TV, these are great, versatile headphones. The sound is very balanced, and I love that when watching a movie or TV, there's definitely a surround sound effect. Like most Apple products, controls are very intuitive (mostly from the left ear cup). The weight is enough that they feel secure on your head, but still unobtrusive. I wasn't sure how I'd feel with on-ear vs. over-ear headphones, but these are very comfortable, even when wearing glasses and earrings. Apple's W1 chip makes pairing these with any Apple device a snap (literally takes under ten seconds), and pairing with other devices is easy as well. At 40 hours, battery life can't be beat. I'm not sure of the max distance for the Bluetooth connection, but I did try leaving my phone upstairs while I did housework downstairs, and I heard no difference in the music.

    As for aesthetics: these are very attractive. The design is simple and not too flashy. I bought the rose-gold color, which is more of a goldish-copper. Definitely not too pink. My mom has the red, and it strikes the right balance between fire-engine and cherry red.

    Best headphones ever.

    Why I recommend these headphones:

    - Stylish
    - Lightweight
    - Compact small design
    - Great soft carrying case.
    - Great Audio quality
    - Fast charge is epic
    - Standby time is fantastic
    - W1 Chip makes pairing/syncing easy.

    Only con's I have are:

    - Micro USB Charger, really?
    - No more then 3 hours of wearing until I get discomfort.

    Would Buy Again

    I originally bought my Beats Solo 3 in the color rose gold with the purchase of my Iphone 6+. I first used them on a plane trip to Miami. My headphones drowned out the engine of the plane and held a long battery life on the trip. They only required re-charge once in four day span. The sound quality is fantastic.

    When I returned home from vacation I began using my Beats while training in the gym. These are by far the most versatile head phones I have owned. Whether I was running a 5K, working abs on an incline or doing overhead lat raises on a flat bench, my Beats stayed put.

    I was able to keep my headphone ear pads clean and scent-free from all the gym action with clorox wipes. The white color never dinged with upkeep.

    Unfortunately, I lost my head phones to a benching accident a month ago. Not many devices will withstand a 45 pound plate.

    I will repurchase these headphones in the future.

    These headphones are amazing. They connected to my device easily, the sound is incredible. I tried a few pairs of wireless headphones in a shop and kept getting feedback. These have no feedback and they are easy to use. The controls on the side are self-explanatory and again really easy to use (a toddler could use them) they charged so so so quick and lasted for days and days. Believe me if your into your music like me then these are PERFECT !!!!

    Do not work in cold temps.

    Did not work in moderately cold temperatures, would shut off around -10.
    Purchased along side the studio wireless which easily functioned without turning off at well under -20 Celsius.

    In addition, these are uncomfortable to wear for any extended periods- but the battery life, weight and cost do give it a competitive advantage.

    Returned these and will definitely keep my Studio wireless 2.0.

    Not working in cold -7 degrees

    Outside with a coat it's great headphones BUT 5-10 min walk in cold in Montreal makes them stop working untill you come back to more hot temperatures. It was only around -5 to -7 degrees celsius or 20 F. Retourned and not a sigle genius bar technician was wware, and there is no temperature working conditions available. Apple failed the design.

    Compatibility with macOS Sierra Version 10.12.13

    I purchased the Beats Solo 3 to reused primarily with my iMac.
    The spoken word and music was thin and metallic which was disappointing.
    When used with both the iPad and iPod touch the results were acceptable

    I have had these headphones since September and have needed to get them repaired or replaced four times since then due to bluetooth connection problems and only one side working. Considering the cost, this is extremely disappointing as each time they need repaired they must be sent away for up to 12 days as Apple is unable to do in-store repairs. I was even given a faulty replacement meaning that I had to go without headphones for over a fortnight.

    Good but...

    Got the Rose Gold and everything was fine and the battery was perfect. Didn't have to charge them for good few weeks. First time I charged them, I noticed the sound kept cutting out for first few days. Called apple support, they told me how to reset them and they seemed to work good after. After about a week after, charged them again and same problem happened again, so I sent them in for repair. They've been sitting in the repair centre for over a month and no one has nay new every time I call to check on them.
    Headphone are great but the repair process is really bad.

    I'm in Love

    I got the Beats Solo 3 Wireless in Rose Gold for Christmas today, as soon as I put them on, I fell in love. I wear glasses, I forgot that I wear glasses when I decided I wanted these. To my surprise, these don't make my head hurt at all. The sound is clear and with high-quality and feels very comfortable. The only downside is that it's hard for me to get them back in that tight case :( . I'd recommend these though.

    So I got the beats solo 3 rose gold for my birthday, and I was a bit hesitant in spending so much money on a pair of headphones. Turns out, they're not actually that bad as everyone says they are. They are very stylish and have a sleek design. As well, they come in a small, compact size which is good for carrying around if you're a commuter. They are comfortable on your head and won't fall off when doing intense movement, which is good for the gym . However, my ears felt a bit sore after wearing them for extended periods of time. It has good noise isolation too. It lowers the noise around you by about 60 to 70%, so it could be useful if you're in a a noisy environment. The audio and sound quality is ok. It's pretty heavy on the bass, so it all depends what genres of music you're into. I'd rate the sound a 7 out of 10. So do I recommend these? If you're not too picky about how your music sounds, then yes. These are your perect day to day headphones. They're small, lightweight and comfortable. Pairing is a breeze and the battery life is so long it's almost ridiculous. Sound quality is pretty decent but could be improved. Overall I enjoyed the beats experience and for your average music listener you will not be dissapointed;)

    Music Rediscovered

    The beats 3 solo are incredible. I'm hearing parts of songs I've never heard before. I wear them to listen to music rather than watch tv. Yes I'm wearing them now. Sign up for 3 months of Apple Music for free. Great platform so far but I'm not sure about how it compares to Spotify. You won't be disappointed with the Beats. I go around putting them on heads of my friends and family. Now I'm understanding why Apple bought them.

    Powerful, crisp and clear sound

    Let me preface this review by saying: I've had my LG Bluetooth buds for running, but they aren't comfortable enough in my ears to handle while studying in the library or playing Netflix at night while my boyfriend is sleeping (lol). Also, that Bluetooth blue light that blinks is obnoxiously bright in a dark room. I'm very particular about the sound quality of my music and HD movies. For example, I've always had Bose speakers and auxiliary Monster cables in my car and in my home.

    Ok, with that being said, I thought I'd spend the money and try these out. The nostalgia of huge on-ear headphones, that come in rose gold to match my Apple Watch and 7+, made them appealing before I even tested the actual quality. Then there was the perk that it had the W1 chip and a 40-hour battery life. I already hate that I have to charge my watch every day... my phone can go 3 days if I need it to and I'd like headphones that could do the same. I'll admit it: I'm lazy. They don't drain the battery on my phone the way my other Bluetooth earbuds and my car's Bluetooth do. Furthermore, you can register the Beats for free with Apple (keep your receipt filed at home, just in case). They're crisp, clear, and LOUD. I can appreciate different background sounds and instrumentals in my music that gives it this dynamic theater-quality listening experience.

    I'm still mastering the side controls; these aren't as straightforward as my LG Bluetooth buds. I did need these headphones to be able to control music and calls, so I'm going to have to figure that out a little more. Volume and pause/play are the only controls I've managed to master lol. It's just a user error. I've also noticed that when making calls, with the Beats connected via Bluetooth, my phone defaults it to speaker from the phone itself... I have to manually redirect AirPlay to my Beats. They appear right there at the top of the list, so I'm not sure what's going on with that. Perhaps an update for the phone or software is necessary. Also, they don't disconnect when signal is weak or cut in and out (which is due to the W1 chip in both the Beats and the fact that they're paired to another device with a W1 chip).

    Hope this helps you in making your decision if the Beats Solo3 are right for you.

    Great headphones

    Excellent battery life
    Stylish looking
    Loud to the point where I could never listen at full volume (and I work around heavy equipment and aircraft)
    Stay on your head tightly during workouts and running
    Ridiculously fast and easy pairing
    Not flimsy feeling at all

    Too big for the gym for my liking, I'll probably wait for powerbeats3
    They're pretty pricey even for the quality you're getting
