    My ears hurt :-(

    • Written by Christopher C from Holt

    They must be called beats because of the vibrant beet red shade you’re ears will turn after using them. I’ve been wanting wireless headphones for years now and am pretty sad that these are my first foray. I got these free with a new laptop. I also don’t like that there’s no auto-off feature (that I’ve found). I would like for them to turn off after being paused for 15 minutes. I’ve had the battery run out before because I forgot to turn them off. I sort of just expected that they would turn off on their own given how expensive they’re being retailed for.

    The sound quality is pretty good, so that’s a plus.

    Gym people, they can't handle the sweat!!

    • Written by Pyper K from Halifax

    The battery life is amazing, and the sound is perfect (obvs),

    BUT, the reason I'm giving this product 3 stars is because it is a little painful on the ears (and I even have super small ears). So, within a half hour I just want to take them off.

    Also, the main button on the headphones used to switch songs/pause started to get finnicky within 5 months of having them...and now the button has stopped working all together. So now I am in the process of returning them to get fixed (under the 1 year warranty). This problem could be because I only use them at the gym, which is a lot of sweat...so I'm assuming that the headphones just aren't made for this kind of usage.

    Poor quality and excessive price

    • Written by Loris V from Paris

    The headset is made of poor quality materials, it seems like it is gonna break anytime. The sound isn't great. The autonomy is acceptable but not as good as they say. To finish the product is not worth the cost at all, many other brands make great wireless headsets at this price which are 10x better.

    Not spectacular

    • Written by Olivier V from Saint-Eustache

    The sound is great and the connectivity is pretty easy to use. However, I can't adjust the pressure on my ears and it's pretty painful after a couple of hours. I would certainly not pay the price for this product.

    Pleasantly surprised and a new lifetime fan

    • Written by Adam S from Edmonton

    What most anti-beats critics out there fail to mention is what the full beats experience provides. These headphones are optimal for today’s music consumption, I prefer these to my adiophile headphones simply because they fit into my life day to day. Every time I make a technology choice, it needs to augment my life, and I believe this is increasingly where society is headed. Apple made a great choice with the AirPods and they made a great choice with Beats, very happy with this Black Friday purchase and anticipate being a long time fan!

    Great Headphones

    • Written by Jaise J from Ballarat

    I got the beats solo 3 couple of months ago and I love them, love the battery life, how it looks and the way they connect is amazing I can easily switch between my iPhone iPad and Apple Watch. But the first time I put them on my ear they hurt soo badly for the first weak but after that it was perfectly fine. The only thing I don’t like about the headphone is how cheap it feels when I shake them it sounds so cheaply made and the buttons on the side also feel very cheap.

    Painful

    • Written by Ryan M from Markham

    Received these with my MacBook and cannot wear them for more than 20 minutes without pain. Same issue with Beats Pro. Stick with Bose QC35.

    Most uncomfortable headphones...I'd give 0 stars.

    • Written by Andrew H from Milton

    I got my Beats free with my MacBook Pro in September. I actually rushed and bought the 13" pro because I needed a new set of headphones for work (I spend a lot of time on the phone with clients and candidates.) Had I known that these would induce headaches and pain on the side of my head, I'd have waited. As it is, I've bought QC 35 II's to use and I enjoy them every day.

    These are defective, in my opinion. Pressure on your ears, the side of your head (especially if you wear glasses) and it doesn't matter if it's a kid that's wearing them; my son is 9 and my daughter is 7. Both suffered headaches after wearing these for a 30-minute episode of something on Netflix. I'm contacting Apple because, while I received them free as part of a promotion, there is no way they should retail for $329. I'm happy to spend the difference and get something else (Studio's? Pro's?) just as long as they don't hurt. I also feel I made a stupid decision buying the MacBook because I got $329 headphones with them...

    Good quality but painfully tight

    • Written by Angela S from Brookline

    I think I have a pretty small head but even then these headphones are SO TIGHT. They practically pin your ears to the sides of your head and pinch your jaws. It's so uncomfortable, which is such a shame because they work well in terms of blocking out noise and delivering high quality sound. I want to stretch them out but I'm afraid to break them. It's frustrating that they're basically unusable.

    Incredible Headphones!

    • Written by Tyler H from Snowflake

    I bought these about a year and a half ago and I use them at least once a day. I think that I’ve charged them maybe twice since then. They have an incredible battery life. I have a smaller head so I find they fit comfortably. They look great, they sound great and my favorite part is that they fold for easy storage. 10 out of 10 would recommend, well deserving of five stars.

    Super painful

    • Written by Brian P from OCALA

    Really uncomfortable to wear. I have only worn them a handful of times because they give me a headache after wearing for only 30 mins. I wish i could have changed them out for a pair of over the ear instead of these on the ear ones. I had no idea there was a difference in style like that. all this money on headphones that I never wear.

    Not worth the money!!

    • Written by Vanessa M from Fredericton

    Not worth buying these... they are cheaply made.
    Mine lasted one year and 3 weeks (3 weeks after my year warrant ended).
    The right earpiece stopped working... only the left sides plays music. Super irritating.
    The cost to repare these is pretty much the same as buying a new pair....

    Sound is Good but Ears in Pain!

    • Written by Grace D from BOSTON

    I was so excited about these headphones and they really do have an amazingly long lasting battery. HOWEVER, I can only wear them 5-10 minutes before my ears are in too much pain. I tried everything to loosen them. Not possible. Will have to return and exchange for something else.

    Hurt ears!!!

    • Written by natalia H from grenoble

    It is super tight!!! My ears hurt from the pressure 20 minutes using it. It’s a shame that it has 40 hours battery but it’s impossible to use it for even 40 minutes without hurting...

    Nice sound, but it hurts my head.

    I got these as a gift with my imac. I like the sound but they squeeze my head, which is extremely uncomfortable. I don't recommend.

    Great sound, but they are so uncomfortable.

    • Written by Lindsay B from Overland PArk

    I'm so glad that I didn't pay for these headphones. After just fifteen minutes of wearing them my ears hurt! Not because of volume but because of the vice like grip that these suckers have on my head. Super bummed that they hurt. For what they cost, you would think this wouldn't be an issue.
