    Beats Solo 3's won me over after I tried to hate on them.

    I couldn't get around this I guess. I thought that the Solo's line up was all trash. I convinced myself that nothing but the Studios were even acceptable. I was wrong of course. The Solo's 3's have redefined my opinion. The technology inside them has a lot to do with it. The redesigned cushions and pressure adjustments they did compared to the solo 2 made a bigger difference than I thought originally. If you aren't happy with the feel of something on your head or ears I guess you could never get used to the sound of them. I'm I saying that they sound better, probably not. But I couldn't wear them long enough for the burn in to find that out because they were so darn tight on my head and ears. The 40 hours and the 5minute quick charge is another thing that makes these special. I don't know of any blue-tooth headphones that last longer or has a quicker charge time. This puts these on the top of the mountain for me for fit, feel, style, and sound in one package.

    worst headphones ever, they power off in cold weather

    If you live anywhere that gets cold, do not get these headphones. They power off in cold weather. I wish Apple had made that clear. They shouldn't be sold anywhere that drops below zero.

    useless in winter!

    Do not purchase this product if you live in a country with winter because this headphone will not work in below 0 degree temperature. I wish i'd known that before i purchased it.

    Excellent

    If you are as deep in the Apple ecosystem as me, these are definitely worth picking up. The sound is clear, the bass is great ( but not overdone like the old beats ), they are lightweight, very very comfortable. The battery life is outstanding and the pairing process is a no brainer. You just hold them near your iPhone and they pair instantly. To be honest, first they didn't like something about my MacBook Pro 15" 2015 ( ever 5-10 minutes they kept interrupting for a second and then coming back ) and I had to reset the bluetooth settings and the output sources of the laptop, but after a 5 minutes process, everything works like a charm. If you own many Apple devices, they are definitely worth it if you have the money. Playing music from your Apple Watch is also great because you don't have to have your iPhone with you, and the cans also come with 3 months free Apple Music which is great if you don't own already a subscription. All in all they are worth it, but I am curious to see how they will resist over time, asI am expecting to get at least 2-3 years from such an expensive pair of headphones!!

    Awesome!

    These headphones are great. I've always used wired headphones and just the fact that these are wireless is a game changer. It is so freeing! Set up was super easy with my iPhone. Battery life is as advertised (really long!). Sound is excellent and does tend to have a heavier bass but not as much as I was expecting for Beats brand. I have an old pair of Bose headphones and these actually sound better. I've read several reviews saying they are uncomfortable, tight, and hurt your head or ears. I haven't run into this problem and I have an average sized head. You just have to find the right position of the pads on your ears which takes 2 seconds when you first put them on. Perhaps they are too tight if you have a larger than average head or if you wear them for several hours on end. I wear them for about an hour at a time and I'm fine. Lastly, I easily received a phone call on them and the person on the other end said I sounded perfectly clear (even with city noise and traffic in the background).

    Some cons include the price; they should probably be about $100 cheaper. Second is the plastic volume buttons; I feel like they have the potential to break if I dropped the headphones or something.

    I would recommend these to anybody looking for high end, wireless headphones that easily pair to your iPhone or other Apple devices. I'm very happy with the purchase.

    brilliant

    The range is unreal, as is the battery life. just amazing. The sound is great; classical, classic rock, rock, r&b or hip-hop. They can get warm, but for me that is not a deal breaker.

    I know some people are complaining about the comfortability, but for me these are great (and they fit the same as beats solo 1 and 2. My wife just makes them slightly longer and they relieve the pressure on her ears when she constantly steals them from me.

    Wireless Made Perfect

    The insane range, crazy battery life, and incredibly easy pairing process make these headphones a far better experience than any wired (or obviously wireless) headphones I've ever tried. The sound is well-balanced while still having a nice punchy bass. At first, I thought they were a little uncomfortable, but as I played around with the adjustable headband, I found the sweet spot where I can wear these things for hours. I can't recommend these enough.

    Sound fine but not the most comfortable

    I am not an audiophile so I think they sound just fine. However, I don't think they're very comfortable. I must have sensitive ears but even after 3 months of use they still hurt my ears after about an hour. I wish I could exchange them for the studio's that go around rather than on top of my ear.

    Not there yet

    Battery life was awesome, sound was good as I like the lows... connection was crisp around the house with few hiccups. I did take them out running and they dropped connection multiple times. It wasn't an easy reconnect, so I tried returning them for another pair. I had the same issue. If I'm paying this kind of money for wireless headsets, they need to stay connected. These didn't.

    Awesome Headphones

    received these as a gift for free from Apple after they really screwed up with my replacement iPhone (long story, but Apple handled situation very well)...man I am glad they did, not sure I would have ever spent $300 on headphones, but these are awesome!...super comfortable, very easy to use, and sound is unreal...my kids love them too, they keep fighting over who gets to use them when I'm not...battery life is superb, they last multiple days of frequent use before needing a charge...and the range is unbelievable, I can set my phone down (iPhone 7 Plus) anywhere in my house, and walk around entire house without any lost connection...they are pricey, but in my opinion worth every penny...im just glad I didn't have to pay for them...haha

    Even better than the Studio Wireless

    I had the Beats Studio Wireless headphones and bought the Beats Solo 3 Wireless headphones yesterday. I did a side by side comparison and I gotta say, the Solo 3's sound better.... way better. I know Beats are geared more toward a the low end of the sound spectrum, but I played Hip Hop, Classical, Country, Rock and some Acapela. Every test had the Solo 3's as the clear winner. Even down to the sound isolation, and the Studios have "noise cancellation".

    There's only one negative, it is the carrying case. Could they not make it a tad bigger?! I feel like just one more centimeter of room would have shaved at least 3 minutes off putting them in the bag. ;)

    I have to be transparent, I got these for $210 on another large retailer's site (think the rain forest). Would I pay 300 plus tax? Probably, but the point is, you can't find them for less, just make sure the place you're buying them from is legit.

    Also, I suggest getting a SquareTrade warranty for them, it is 50 bucks for 3 years of accidental damage and manufacturer defects.

    Amazing headphones

    Beats Solo3 are the best headphones I have used. The connection was as easy as turning on my iPhone. Very smart to use iCloud to pair them to all your apple products. As for as the sound It has amazing Quilty for any Genre that you plan to listen to. Beats have been know for years to have a really heavy bass sound and now with the new beats that are coming out they have been listing to there customers and make them have more of a clear true sound.

    Ears hurt after couple of hours of use

    Sound is OK. Wireless range is excellent. Battery life is phenomenal. Lightweight and stylish. Comfort factor - extremely poor. Your ears will hurt after couple of hours of use

    Nice features, terribly uncomfortable.

    Don't get me wrong.. The headphones sound pretty good and they have amazing range and battery life, but the design is made that they fit SO tightly onto your head that it becomes unbearable after about 30 minutes of wearing them. Maybe it's just my large head, but I don't have this problem with my other pair of on-ear headphones. I will more than likely be returning them and will wait for Apple to update the Beats Studio with the W1 Chip and see if those are any more comfortable since they are over-ear.

    Uncomfortable!

    I went into the apple store on Saturday 10/29/16 to purchase these. These headphones sound and look really nice. I got the black matte to match my phone. but it's Monday and i'm already contemplating bringing them back to the store this weekend. they are just SO uncomfortable. My ears are hurting and I have a slight headache as I type up this review. I think the the Powerbeats 3 or BeatsX might be a better fit for me.

    Great Sounding Wireless Without The Hassle

    Had my Beats Solo3 for a couple of weeks and these are actually my first Beats headphones - wired or wireless - but not my first wireless headphones. My headphone sound preference tends to lean towards crisp, clear highs and mids - so definitely not a typical bass-head! That context will help when I talk sound quality - a very subjective topic!

    First, let me share overall wireless performance. Hands down these are the easiest wireless headphones I have ever used - assuming you are deep in the Apple eco-system! They paired instantly with my iPhone 6s and in seconds were also paired and ready on all my devices with iCloud. Wow! It is also very easy to switch to which device is actively connected and playing. This was a huge plus for me. Despite claims from previous headphones supporting multiple devices it was never easy to select the active device, and one headset I had always kept disconnecting and reconnecting to various paired devices in the middle of music! Not so with the Solo3's.

    Now back to the sound quality. My resistance to Beats headphones has always been too much bass, and even though I wanted the wireless benefits of these headphones, I was nervous about the sound. No worries! Yes, there is more bass then the headphones I typically like, but from what I recall from previous Beats headphones these are much better balanced and there are clear though somewhat reserved mids and highs. For most genre I listen to on my iPhone - Rock, Alternative and Country - the sound is great. For Classical and Jazz, I may still reach for my wired headphones. And one of the surprises is how good the spatial separation is - you get a great sense of being in the middle of the music.

    Overall, these are a very good pair of wireless headphones - as simple as it gets. The price is a bit high - there is more plastic then I usually see in this price range - so long term reliability remains to be seen. Comfort is good - pads are comfortable and they stay put with no pinching or rubbing for me. So if you finally want a no-compromise wireless headphone with the easiest bluetooth usage I have seen and with a well spaced but slightly bass sound - you won't be disappointed.

    Bad sound quality and uncomfortable.

    This is the worst earphone that I ever had.I knew Beats headphones don't have good sound quality.The sound quality is even worse than I expected.It is just a functional headphone. You can use it to make phone calls .As for listening to music, actually I don't think this thing is delivering music. It is just making sounds.Also it doesn't support AptX so it is impossible to perform HiFi musics. The headphone is too tight,it makes your ears hurt if you wear it for a long time.
