      Best on eat headphones out there!

      I have seen so many reviews on these and they keep saying that there are better headphones out there. To be honest, I don’t see any better than this. 40 hours o I have seen so many reviews on these and they keep saying that there are better headphones out there. To be honest, I don’t see any better than this. 40 hours of battery life, great comfort and they sound fantastic! People would tell you that the Studios sound better but they don’t because they both sound the same. Go to a Apple Store and test them out yourself. These are great for the gym or traveling. I recommend checking out beatkicks covers. They are good for protecting the cushion from sweat. Overall, these are definitely worth getting!

      They are alright...

      Look great but the comfort is terrible since they are way to tight on the head. Can't wear them for too long or i would get a headache and heats up my ears. Sou Look great but the comfort is terrible since they are way to tight on the head. Can't wear them for too long or i would get a headache and heats up my ears. Sound quality is for sure not bad but not worth paying 300 dollars. I would rather go for something like audio technica or bose,

      Poorly Built Headphones

      I've now owned 3 pairs of these Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones and each time they have crapped out on me at around the year and a half mark. The most recent pa I've now owned 3 pairs of these Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones and each time they have crapped out on me at around the year and a half mark. The most recent pair stopped turning on a few days back. I spoke with support rep and it was determined that this was an issue that does happen with the product on occasion and that they would be sending me a new pair in exchange for me sending the old ones back. While I do appreciate the Senior Adviser approving a one time exception for this because it was a few months outside of warranty, I called in today for an update, and I was told that none of this had been documented so I would not be getting a replacement. So long story short, the product seems to be very poorly built, and in addition, support does not seem to find it important to honor their word. As a pre-requisite to all of this, I am not the type to complain and this is only the 2nd review I've left for any product. Do yourself a favor and buy a pair of Sony Q35s and AVOID these if you value your money.

      Earlobes and head hurt from physical pressure

      I bought these headphones in New Zealand for $650 at JBHiFi and I regret it every single day. Not because of sound quality or noise canceling, but because the a I bought these headphones in New Zealand for $650 at JBHiFi and I regret it every single day. Not because of sound quality or noise canceling, but because the are unwearable after 20 to 30 minutes. My earlobes and my head start to hurt from too much physical pressure exerted, the squeezing of the headphones onto the head. I wear them only when I absolutely have to, and need to move them the whole time when the pain starts. It is unbelievable that headphones that cost this much are so poorly designed. I couldn't even return them as they were open and used, and there is no Apple shops in New Zealand. I am stuck with the most expensive bad headphones on the market. I should have gone with the Bose headphones, that are actually like a feather on your head and ears. Immeasurably sad that I can't get my $650 back.

      Same problem over and over again

      First pair of wired Beats headphones I had, the ear covers started coming off. Then the ear covers started coming off my new Beats Solo wireless headphones last First pair of wired Beats headphones I had, the ear covers started coming off. Then the ear covers started coming off my new Beats Solo wireless headphones last year. Had them fixed. Now, the ear covers are coming off again. I use them MAYBE two days a week, if that. Love the sound, but won't be buying again.
