    Nice design, but issues with sound

    In August I bought my beats with a new laptop for college last summer, and I enjoyed the beats while they worked. About 4 months later in December I sent in my beats for a repair since I couldn't hear anything from the right side. Once I got my beats repaired they only worked for another 5 months before I went to the Apple store asking for a replacement. Two days after I came home from the Apple store I tried to listen to some music, and once again there was no sound out of the right side. The aesthetics of this product is quite nice however Apple needs to improve on the manufacturing of these products so that they last longer than 6 months at a time.

    Right side has no sound

    They were very good headphones, until I was walking home (7 months after I bought the product) the right side went silent. At first I thought it was the cable, but then I did some research and found that it was a very common problem. On a apple support form I found this (The main issue with the new Solo 2.s is that the wire is glued into place and over time the wire losses contact with the speaker. This is what causes the issue with the beats no working properly.) I can't even contact the company to see if they can be repaired. I have a 2 year warranty with my headset.

    Look, Sound, Feel Great but Bad Build Quality.

    I bought my beats solo2 in January 2015 since then I have had to go back to the store 3 times because the right channel stops working, I see others have this problem with the build quality and Apple need to address it because once out of warranty the repair cost is on you - I have no idea how this passed QA and is obviously a continuing problem with new sets as each time I had a problem they were replaced for new and the same issue keeps happening. This time I am going to try and get my money back.

    Bought it for uni

    I was snapping to get ready for university last week, when I saw this beauty on the Mac store. I instantly fell in love to it, though i wanted the wireless one, but i was kinda short. Any, the quality is great! Its small but every single sound is perfection. The best for my course at uni.

    Great Headphones

    I had an original pair of Beats Solo headphones and enjoyed the sound, but the Solo2 headphones are much better and definaitely worth the upgrade if you listen to music regularly. They are still suited to certain genres (hip hop, pop, rap), but most music released in the last five years will sound very good. The built quality is also an improvement from the original Solos, but still not as good as it could be. Volume level is very good and although they are not technically noise cancelling headphones, very little external sound can be heard. Other headphones might have a cleaner or purer sound, but these produce an enjoyable, unique sound.

    Not great

    The beats have pretty good sound quality and look amazing, i'm not going to pretend they don't, however I suffered a similar problem most Beats users get, I look after my beats and they've never been dropped or damaged however, one day after about 4 and 1/2 months out of the blue the right side stopped working all together and there's no solution to this other than buying new beats.

    Beats Solo 2

    Just okay in terms of sound but design wise I think this is the coolest looking headphones in the market. However, it does hurt your ear after just 15-30 minutes using them. I love the design but it is so painful to wear. These headphones should not be priced for $259. This is way too expensive for just an okay quality sound. Again, design wise, I LOVE THEM.

    £170 of disappointment!

    Before I say why I've given 1 star I will happily admit that the sound system is amazing and everything but I'm so disappointed with the durability of the product.

    My father bought this product for me as a congrats gift for passing my GCSE's and getting into college; but not even 6 months passed and the right channel had completely gone. How I have no idea as I'd always treated my beats with care. With this I thankfully found the receipt and took it back and got it replaced which was great. After that I was more concious of it happening and took even more care of the headset. But just recently the same thing has happened to my replacement beats; the right channel has gone again! You'd think that for paying £170 you'd get an amazing product with a long lasting life time. NOPE.

    Hopefully, this Friday I'll get my fathers money back and invest in an actual headset that's reliable for the price of £170!

    The beats are the bass

    I bought a pair of these last week and they are the pair that I have been looking for. They have the neatest finish, the deepest bass just all of the criteria that people who love their music. I would recommend these to anyone.
