• 2.0 out of 5 stars


    I bought these a while back, but never reviewed. Love the color and sound....but a few months after wearing them to the gym a few days a week, the sound stopped working in one ear. It works if I bend it a certain way and make no other sudden movements. I wouldn't buy again!

    Sounds are great; headphones are horrible

    I'm barely an audiophile, but the quality of sound is super important to me whenever I'm using any headphones. The Beats Solo3 have done a good job capturing every note and nuances in a given song so I don't really have much to complain there. The reason why I'm giving these headphones 2 out of 5 stars is because less than a year after using them, the left side of the headphone snapped due to the shape of my head. It's ridiculous that these $300 headphones aren't able to adapt to different head sizes and that if your head is not perfectly round, then you would risk breaking the headphones. Additionally, my beats had problems connecting to my Mac and would stop capturing sound after like 30 minutes of connecting the headphones to the bluetooth on my Mac (i.e. music would be playing but you wouldn't hear anything from the headphones; most of the time I would have to the connect the Mac to the headphones using an adapter cable that comes with the headphones). Please do yourself a favor and do NOT buy these headphones unless you have a pretty round head... in which case maybe these might be worth buying.

    good enough music sound, however sound quality of calls can get very bod

    Generally, music sounds good. Headphone are quite tight on the head, and since I wear glasses this make the top of my ears hurt after a short time of using. For this price, active noise reduction should be included. Sound on phone calls using bluetooth can get very scratchy, even with the phone only 2-3 feet away and nothing in-between, listening to music this doesn't occur even at longer distances.

    Leather comes off the headset

    I wish I can upload pics here so everyone can see how the manufacturer is failing. I spend $299 on a headphone and the glue does not stick the leather so the leather starts coming off! Sorry, this product failed.

    Broke after 3 months

    Headband snapped after 3 months of normal usage. Power button is very hard to press. Sound quality is poor. Zero bass. Would not recommend. They are crazy over priced for being such cheap quality.

    Best headphones I’ve ever used period!

    I’ve tried countless top brand head phones, for phones and consoles. Until I used beats solo 3s my favorite was the turtle beach x12 then the px3s. And although I’m still in love with turtle beach, especially since they aren’t brand specific. Beats has become my #1 favorite headphones period. all I own is apple products. So the versatility isn’t a problem. I love how they charge 3hrs for every 5mins too. Love them! The sound is unparalleled. It’s like your favorite cup of coffee on a calm morning or like the first time you used turtle beach on a Xbox after using cheap 20$ junk ones from the super center. I obviously highly recommend them. They’re worth the money, especially if you love to listen to music all the time on your iPod or iPhone or love watching movies on your Mac or iPad. ****

    Better be careful!

    Not going to lie these are great headphones but you may want to be gentle with them. I have had mine for only 5 months and just from stretching them to get over my head they have snapped on both sides just above where you can fold them. they are very great headphones no doubt but it shouldn't snap because i was putting them on my head and just to clarify i wasn't stretching them excessively far just enough so i could wear them.

    Coming apart at the seams

    Hello. I really do hope this gets across to someone at the beats by Dre offices. I bought a pair of solo3’s last quarter of 2017 and fast forward to June 2018(with minimal use), the head phones have come apart at the seams. The leather has come off revealing foam stuffing underneath I am honestly quite disappointed and sad. Kindly assist as this isn’t the standard I am used to with apple products. Quite disconcerting!!

    Good But Breaks

    I love music and beats have an amazing sound system and great comfort, although after a year when the warranty ends, the side of the beats seem to break and need to get a new pair. I've gotten two beats, Solo2 and Solo3.

    stopped charging

    loved the head phones still do but I don't love that Ive only had them about 6 months and they look like they are charging and I have left it on there a few times now for good while for it to have well enough time to charge but the cut on and die within 10 mins every single time. Ive watched countless videos on how it could get fixed per the owner at home which is me and nothing has worked. Ive even used the support here to update and still they just cut off after ten mins and flashes red like its not charged and yes Ive tried different cables to charge it well after the ones that came with stopped charging.

    Not Durable

    I bought these headphones and used them about 10 times (I only use them when I fly). Performance wise, they are excellent, but the cloth ripped away from the ear piece so you can see the foam behind it. Not covered under warranty, so I'll use them a few more times until they are completely ruined and then will toss them. Fortunately I bought a pair of much-cheaper headphones before I "upgraded" to the Beats and they sound good and are wearing well. Huge disappointment.

    Extremely disappointed!

    I purchased my Beats Solo 3 headphones back in Feb 2017. I was really disappointed when the left side of my headphone stopped working all of a sudden after 4 months. I took it in for a repair to the apple store and they ended up giving me a new pair because they couldn't fix it.
    Less than a year later, the new ones stopped working! These headphones were expensive so I did not expect them to break so easily. I took a good care of them and only listened to them while I was at work. I am not going to pay over $130 to get these fixed either because I would rather just get a new pair.
    I am extremely disappointed with the Solo 3’s and will not recommend these to anybody! Even the $10 headphones I wear to the gym everyday hasn’t broke in over 3 years!

    Beats Solo 3 Wireless

    I purchase these headphones and I first thought they were amazing but I have them for a year and it is the second time on of the headphones doesn't work. The first time I returned they fixed and I had to pay, now this second time. They should last more time due to the price and quality expected.

    I’ve gone through 3 pairs of the Powerbeats 3 within 8 months with each set having the same problem; no durability. The headphones stop charging and will not connect to music source.

    nice but painful

    I got this pair of headphones last Christmas and I was beyond excited. They sound amazing and they are very cute but they are PAINFUL to my ears, I thought I was the only one and then I read comments online saying the same thing. After 2+ hours they hurt really bad, unfortunately for me it was too late to return them. I wish I could exchange them for another model with more ear space.

    Great Quality but Too Heavy

    The quality is wonderful but the sheer weight on your ears makes it tough to listen to anything for an extended period of time. i wish there was a way to lighten up the weight.

    Carrying case

    The only problem I have with these is the carrying case the zipper broke off today. But that’s the only problem the sound is amazing overall.

    Second Pair in two years and mad as heck

    As stated above this is my second pair, the first broke 10 months into owning them and luckily that was within the warenty window. They sent me a new pair and now 11 months later they too are breaking. The folding arms break and the padding pulls out. DONOTBUY. I know I will not buy another pair no matter how much I love them.

    Worst headphones ever!

    I have had a problem where one ear wasn't working. This was frustrating. I got my headphones repaired with no problem. 6 months later and i am having the same problem again. These headphones are NOT durable. Do not waste your money on these headphones. The price does not match with the quality and you will be disappointed
