    Not good for the long run! Parents save your money

    I have always bought beats because they were cool and nice. They sounded pretty decent. However, at this point in my life I realized I was just getting caught up in the trend of headphones. Consumers especially parents don’t waste your time buying this product. Trust me I know I’ve bought at 3 different pairs of beats headphones in about 4-5 years! Save your time and money! I have bought the beats headphones with wires and of course the wireless headphones! I know what you’re thinking. You didn’t treat your headphones right... No I did like they were made of goal... But the honest truth is that beats aren’t great headphones for the long haul. For instance I purchased these wireless headphones about a year or almost 2 years ago. Now they’re giving me issues. They won’t connect to my phone unless I manually do it.. or I have to keep resetting it on my phone. That’s annoying!!! What’s also annoying is that I bought beats wireless headphones for this reason: The beats with the wire/cord would always go out after a couple years! Meaning time to buy a new cord or headphones. That’s stupid! I’m throwing money out the window. So I thought I was being smarter by buying the wireless ones. NOW, my headphones won’t connect to my phone sometimes unless I manually do it! Another thing that also irks my nerves. The covering that’s over the headphones/cushion it sometimes comes undone.. so you have to keep tucking it back under just so I can stay in place... I know you love your kids and want to give them the best of you want to be cool... but save your wallets! (: Thank you, sorry for the long rant

    Headphones are a great product but didn’t realize that Apple had bought out beats and that they have changed the product to work with their devices.

    I was very excited about this decade special edition, they look great! I love the look but sadly the sound is not that good, they said is all about the sound, is all about the bass... but is not, even I’m an Apple lover I have to say this headphones are not for me, also they hurt my ears after 45-60 minutes. Pros: Battery life Great Look (for me) iPhone connectivity Bad: They sound ok but nothing special, at least for me. They hurt my ears.

    Uncomfortable

    I am probably the only person to regret purchasing these headphones since they are a big trend, but I regret purchasing them. They were super uncomfortable and ridiculously overpriced for what they are. I have only used them once and couldn't even wear them very long. I have since sold them to one of my friend's who also found them to be uncomfortable.

    Solo Beats 2 were much better.

    Really a shame because I just wanted to buy the older solo wireless 2 from Beats. The new solo 3's are okay but the hype is so overrated. They are supposed to have 40 hours of play time from one charge. The problem I had is that they would not stay connected to my smart TV. You had to do the set up twice each and every time you wanted to connect. I though ti was just that specific pair of headphones so I returned them and got a new pair. Same problem. Why fix something that wasn't broken. The Solo 2 are fantastic. You simply push the power button and they are connected. Whole process takes 20 seconds. The solo 3 took three minutes each and every time.

    Theses are the 4 pair of beats my son have had. The quality had went down. And as expensive they are it should be a lifetime warranty.

    Okay sound, but terrible battery

    I rarely get one hour of use from these headphones before the battery dies. I charge them overnight, they indicate being fully charged, and 45 minutes later, they’re dead. I then plug them into my iPhone to continue listening, but what’s the point of getting wireless headphones if I have to do that? Already seeking another brand, and I haven’t had these a month!

    I tried these out the other day and returned them almost immediately. They seemed to sound better in the store but when I hooked them up to my pixel 2 they sounded like garbage on most every type of song. I picked up some Sony headphones instead and have been much happier with them.

    Since the company was purchased from Dr Dre, the quality of these headphones has gone to the dump. There's no longevity to these. The earphone cushions detach easily, started losing sound from one of the speakers and the overall quality sucks. The company should have remained with Monster cables as before. I will not buy their products again and do not recommend them at all

    Don't let my name confuse you, I'm not that old. With all the hype I expected more, but was very disappointed. I found that I couldn't wear them with my glasses, they hurt. I wasn't`t impressed with the sound either. I returned them and got Bose instead. I am very happy with the new Bose. 5 star to Bose.

    Studio Headphones are better

    These are smaller than the studio beats however, the comfort level isn't the best. They are more on the ear than over the ear, I would recommend purchasing the Studio.

    Cheap Quality and hurts your head.

    This is one of the worst headphone for the price. After couple of months of use the glue that sticks the headphone supports started coming out. Since it's on the ear headphone, it hurts your head just after 15 minutes of using it.

    Heavy Tight Not Good Sound, but Great Range

    These are difficult to enjoy. It is hard to pair the bluetooth to multi-devices. They are heavy and tight on the head. The sound is the poorest of any headphones I have tried. The only good thing is the terrific range around the house.

    31 days they quit working ( died) and had to be returned. I had the choice send back to the factory for a repair, money returned or get s new pair. After talking to the Geek Squad I got the Bose Headphone. Not as pretty but for that amount of money I would rather have quality.

    These beats arent meant for everyone! spend the extra to get over ear, the on ears are uncomfortable, apply a lot of pressure, and if you wear glasses or wear earrings, GOOD LUCK leak a bit too! upgrade to Studios, or Bose headphones on ear or over ear. BOSE ALL DAY
