    Not great, sadly.

    I was so happy to get my hands on these. got them one year ago. the sound was good with a decent amount of bass, with occasional bluetooth glitches while working out. the lighter cup cover didn't help much with the matter and they did get dirty over time. which wasn't something i loved. after 6 months of usage, without ANY damage or drops or anything, the left ear cup just gave up! now i have to use them wired, which is annoying since thats not what i paid for. sort of disappointed. i mean when you pay this much for a product you don't expect it to just die on you.

    I have had them for almost one year (got them thanksgiving week) and they have a few scuffs from dropping them and even when working out of playing sports they have been great. I love that they always have battery and I find myself never out of battery, i can use them from so far away from my iphone i have a huge yard and they work through the whole thing. Also They still sustain the same amount of battery every time. They must have to have some sweat proof ability because i droped them in my pool and they still work after leaving them there for a day

    Could have been a little worse!

    I find them reasonably comfortable. They’re as stylish as they appear to be. I have a big head so I’m a little suspicious of the reviews bragging about having even bigger heads, but there you go! But my disagreement ends there.

    The sound quality is abysmal. It is not reasonable to recommend them to anyone who has a good pair of headphones, and at this price I expected much better. I was salivating for these. They’re a bit tinny and sort of useless. They have a soundstage that is similar to the other Dr. Beats I’ve tried before, wired ones, but they’re not as good. I listened to popular and clasical music with them. They’re a little better for Pop.

    Great! but...

    sound is great and battery life is better than expected it gos days with out a single charge sleek smooth design but it is hard to wear after workouts sweat and heat gets trapped in the cups of the headphones and TOTALLY a lye when it said noise cancelling and thing along those lines it just drains volume out people tell me they can here my music even when its down at 40% (the songs were a bit loud though) and I still hear everything outside of them I could have them on 100% and put on heavy metal rock and still hear the conversation 3 feet away from Mei would buy the beats studio but there just to big and I always lose small earbuds so this is what I got but the are nice and connect easy even shows your name when connecting so the can be recognized if stollen

    Beats solo 2

    I hope these are better. I bought the new solos last year and the cloth covering headphones came out because it was cut to short. This happened within months. Received a replacement pair and two months in started doing the same thing. Now I'm stuck with them. The foam is coming off the back that's attached to headphones. I have them superglued now and they look terrible. Not same quality since bought from dre. I still own a couple pairs of the old original beats with a cord and they are still perfect. Disappointed. Also have brand new mini 4 and less than half a year and the down volume doesn't work. It stays fire hot all of the time also.

    Horrible purchase

    I have to constantly update the headphones. When i originally purchased them they wouldn't charge. They fixed the problem quickly and helpfully. More recently the left earphone gave out on me. Now i have to send it in for maintenance AGAIN. When the sound is working its actually pretty nice but again if its working. Has a plastic and cheap feel that is not very pleasing. They are comfortable but you if you are working out with them you constantly have to wipe sweat off them and your ear for comfort. The fit of the product isn't very well either. They seemed to have designed it for people with abnormally large heads. If i laid my head back at all the headphones would slip off my ears and its on its smallest size. I wouldn't recommend to anyone at all.

    Great sound... but hurts

    I like them so far, the only think is that are not so comfortable. My ears hurt after a while, no matter how a place them I need to remove them every 20 min :(

    The battery last forever

    When they say 40 hours of playback, they are not joking. I use them for about 2-3 hours a day, and the battery lasts almost 3 weeks before I have to charge again, I had to charge almost every other day with my last pair of wireless headphones. Not to mention it charges really fast, and the USB cable they provide is very nice, definitely not made of cheap material. About the sound, I only listen to MP3s on my phone and the sound is pretty much as good as it gets for this price range. Mainly good for high bass songs (hiphop, R&B, Rap, dubstep, drum&bass...etc), the mids are lacking slightly. I suspect it would perform even better if paired with a DAC, or play lossless tracks. Some say the price is a little too high for what its worth, which I agree that it is a little pricey, if someone was to ditch $2300 on a pair of headphones, they usually don't mind spending a little more for a more luxurious brand like B&O Beoplay or even Audeze, but the playback duration in this pair definitely worth some points in my book, and depending on personal preference (music genre) you may find other brands more suitable, but this works just fine for me.

    P.S: While the one-button connect bluetooth with iPhones are very convenient, I wish it would do the same for iPad Pro and iPad Air2, since I have multiple Apple products that I use the headphones with.

    4 Stars because the earpads on the headphones start to get uncomfortable (pressing on the ear) after about an hour of use. Head band adjustment (slider) seems a little flimsy, would be nice if they were a little tighter so it would lock in place better.

    Expected way better

    I've had my headphones less than six months. The sound has been great, but the outer covering on one side has completely separated from the plastic. Cheaply made for such a high-end brand.

    Not usable in cold weather

    They shut down if its cold outside (around 32F/0C). They'll come back after you get into a warmer place. Useless outside if it's winter, so beware. This is my second pair; same issue. Known issue by Apple and they should let buyers know at this point.

    Great headphones otherwise, just not for about 3 months a year.

    I have to say that I find that Beats Solo3 has finally produced a product that many will find to be just perfect. The build quality is very good...many have said otherwise but I disagree. The look is modern and very Apple iproduct. The sound has the bass that you want but not exaggerated. It's not a pair of German audiophile headphones but they are a great modern, well balanced headphones that you'll also like how easily they pair and you'll love the look

    Better sound than I expected but flawed

    I sent them back. I was really pleased by the sound, it was much better than I expected. I did not find them to be comfortable, When I used them for an extended listening session there were drop outs where the music stopped several times an hour, even with my iPhone 7+ in arms reach, they also lost connection a couple of times so I had to re-pair the with the phone.

    returned them after 4 days

    I couldn't wait for the airpods to arrive so I purchased the Beats Solo3. They were easy to set up and I liked the sound. I especially liked the long battery life and the ability to walk anywhere in the house and get good sound quality. What I didn't like is the feel of the headphones on my ears. They quickly made my ears feel smothered and warm. The deciding factor for returning them was the poor phone call connection. Several people told me that my voice sounded muffled when I spoke. I applaud Apple for how easy it is to return the phones and get a full refund.
