  • Overview

    A complete update of Beats' most popular model, the Beats by Dr. Dre Solo2 headphones offer improved acoustics, a wider range of sound, and enhanced clarity for all the music on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. They also deliver even greater comfort thanks to a streamlined, lightweight, and durable design.

    Feel a new kind of sound

    The Solo2 headphones have a more dynamic and wider range of sound, with a clarity that can bring you closer to what the artist intended you to hear. You'll feel the higher fidelity audio no matter what type of music you play.

    Custom comfort

    Starting at the center of the flexible headband, the frame is curved even more to enhance the custom-fit feeling. The earcups are ergonomically angled to complete this natural fit, and they pivot for optimal comfort and sound delivery. The earcups' premium material also helps dissipate heat and minimize sound leakage.

    Streamlined design

    Fast-flowing curves, a lack of visible screws, and easy foldability exemplify the sleek aesthetic of Beats Solo2. That thoughtful approach extends to engineering and material selection, which together resulted in a more durable headphone that stands up to extended use.

    No need to reach for your iOS device

    With the color-matched RemoteTalk cable, you can change songs, adjust the volume, and even take calls without having to reach for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. (Functionality may vary by device.)

      Painful!!

My ears hurt after 10-15 minutes of wearing, regardless of how I adjust the headband. Extremely unpleasant - what's the point of headphones that sound great but are utterly unwearable?

I can't stand to wear them for more than 15 - 20 minutes at max, after which they start to hurt my ears... Spend a little bit more for better comfort! Rating specific to comfort... They can sound great but if I can't stand to wear them then there's a big problem!

      Great sound and battery life but uncomfortable

      Sound is great. Battery life greater then I have expected. Materials are great, even the cushion feels great. But I can't wear them more than 30 minutes. They b Sound is great. Battery life greater then I have expected. Materials are great, even the cushion feels great. But I can't wear them more than 30 minutes. They become uncomfortable and you feel some kind of pressure on ears.

      Terrible

These headphones are poo Do a quick search for right side speaker repair for Beats Solo2 headphones. You'll see thousands of people with the exact same problem. These headphones are poorly made. My right side speaker went out conveniently just a few months out of warranty. Beats headphones are owned and sold by Apple, but they don't have the same quality build as Apple branded products. They are junk. The only thing they have going for them is their design aesthetic. I won't buy Beats headphones ever again. A product that costs hundreds of dollars should provide more than just a few months of use.

      Terrible

      I have had 3 beats: 2 ur and 1 solo 2. I bought Solo 2 because URs broke exactly 6 times and I was tired to change them every 6 months. So I bought mine in 2015 I have had 3 beats: 2 ur and 1 solo 2. I bought Solo 2 because URs broke exactly 6 times and I was tired to change them every 6 months. So I bought mine in 2015 but I haven't used them until 2016. When I started to use, everything was fine until the day that they broke. No sound was coming from the left side of the headphone and I'm sick of it. Those earphones and headphone cost at least 600 dollars. I believe that they are made out of the worst quality products. I use them very carefully. So please, don't buy any Beats product in order to save your money.

      Very bad quality, cheap plastic and metal headset

      Except if you get it for free as a gift, forget about it, this headset is made of cheap quality material and the sound is awful. They get damaged easily and for Except if you get it for free as a gift, forget about it, this headset is made of cheap quality material and the sound is awful. They get damaged easily and for the same price range you can get decent quality ones in other brands.
