    Great looking. Great sounding.

    Beautiful, warm sound for many genres — from electronic to classical, attractive matte black finish, effortless connectivity, and phenomenal battery life!

    Hope the Studio version will come out soon

    1. Works well with the latest Apple hardware and software;
    2. Easy to set up;
    3. Never-died battery life;
    4. Good sound quality for certain playlists in Apple Music.

    1. Not comfortable enough for the price you pay for it;
    2. Doesn't work well with my old Apple products (e.g. 2012 MacBook Pro with Retina 15");
    3. You really need to select songs to extract the full potential of these cans;
    4. Software can still be improved, e.g, switch between two Apple devices can be quicker and smoother. Sometimes my iPhone can't find the headphone when it is switched from my MacBook Pro.

    Sometimes you just need to trust what you don't fully understand.

    Beyond the sleek Matte Black finish, there lies the future of wireless led by the W1 chip. There is a lot to appreciate here. I feel like a lot of reviewers put pressure on themselves to be overly critical when it comes to a product like Beats headphones. You can find a flaw in anything. With that being said, these headphones sound great. Take it for what they are, a fun listening experience. The range is truly impressive and the reliability of the W1 is something to marvel at. Battery life is excellent. Do yourself a favor and pick these up. Easy to set up and even easier to enjoy.

    Great sound, terrible comfort

    I bought these headphones because I am unable to wear ear pods. (They hurt my ears and they fall out. I have tried many, many different types. Have the same problem with ear plugs.) These headphones work well, have a large range, and good quality of sound, etc. They look beautiful. Unfortunately, after about five to ten minutes, the band on top starts hurting my head. No matter how I adjust the band, the discomfort doesn't stop and persists long after I've taken the headphones off. After owning them for less than a week, I find myself looking into whether I can buy extra band paddage. For the price of these headphones, I shouldn't have to do that.

    Great Headphones

    Ordered this pair special edition black headphone on Thursday and received it on Saturday. It looks and feels great, though the sound wise I thought a bit lacking in the 'oomph'. The bluetooth connection is fast and superb as advertised - so far the best and hassle-free set up bluetooth headphones/earphones I ever had.
    Buy this if you want :
    1) fast and no lag connection
    2) great battery life and fast charging
    3) wireless

    Great connectivity but uncomfortable.

    As far as I'm concerned, these headphones deliver everything they promised in terms of connectivity. They are by far the easiest bluetooth headphones I've dealt with. But... I cannot wear them more than a few minutes before the top band starts giving me a headache. And they sit so tightly on my ears that everything aches. If you, like me, have a somewhat sensitive head (and ears) these probably aren't for you.

    These Headphones are amazing!

    In my humble opinion, these headphones were the best item announced at the recent iPhone event! Just received them in the matte black finish. First impression, they look awesome. Pairing was about two seconds just as advertised. And, within the time it took me to check they were already paired through iCloud to my Apple Watch, iPad Pro, and MacBook Pro. Plus, since the iPhone knows to call me Lord Vader, all four devices indicated Lord Vader's Beats Solo3! The name is actually fitting the look of the headphones.

    Tested out the sound on a few of my favorites, Coldplay (Charlie Brown), Florence and the Machine (Spectrum), Basement Jaxx (Never Say Never), and Afro Celt Sound System (Mojave). The clarity and sound range is fantastic for headphones this price. There is ample bass, but it is not overdone like some other Beats headphones. Plus, they are loud enough to meet me senseless desire to crank the volume.

    I haven't tested the batter life yet, but if that is anywhere near the advertised 40 hours I will be thrilled. I just need them to last for 20 hours of flying to Singapore.

    These earphones have RANGE TO SPARE!

    Very COMFY, SOUND GREAT, but THE RANGE IS OUTSTANDING! I placed my iPhone 6 Plus on a fence post, and took a 200 foot tape measure out for a walk. I got all the way to my neighbor's fence at 170 FEET, and the signal was still STRONG. No dropouts! This headset claims to be a "Class 1 Bluetooth" device, but the iPhone makes no such claim. Theoretically, I am limited to the range of the lesser device (iPhone) which should have a range of 33 feet. Now, 170 feet is very impressive!
