    Great battery life & better balanced sound from previous models . Lightweight Matte Black is a nice touch but material feels a little flimsy. ***Mic is Terrible for phone calls*** No replaceable earpads

    The beats are great. They work fine without the cord. When you place the cord in, one ear doesn’t work. When i googled the issue it’s a common problem. For beats that exspensive that shouldn’t be an issue. Wish i saw the reviews on that issue sooner.

    I never liked the pricing of beats. Even on sale these are expensive. The bass are volume are ok. Not top of the line but you get beats more for the name, not the quality. For these prices, stick with Bose. But beats do look nicer. Also no noise cancellation.

    Beats Solo3’s do most things ok, but nothing really well. The base is a bit muddy, the build is a bit fragile and the headphones become slippery when moist limiting their usefulness in the gym. The one thing that they do have is battery life. They are lite but place a great deal of pressure clamping down on your ears making long listening sessions problematic. For the Best Buy sale price of $149 they are acceptable, but at $300....

    Bought this as a gift a few months ago and ran into the same issue I've been having across the product line. It always crack under light use or little use around the ear and band always crack and break away. Beats/Apple needs to step up on the quality built for a item that cost this much.

    I purchased these in August 2018 and they have been great but as of April the right side has decreased sound immensely, it's half as loud as it was when i first got it. which is very disappointing considering the price and the short length i have owned them. there are also multiple scratches on them in various places.

    I purchased a little over a year ago. And they were great while they lasted. But ear pad started to come off. The day I got replacement pads in, the right speaker went out. I plugged it in to make sure it wasnt the wireless signal too. Will move onto to another brand. I do use them all day at work but i expected $300 headphones to last longer.

    I am giving this product 3 stars because in the 2 years that I have had them they have stopped working twice. The up side is beats customer service is great and will work with you. Bad part is for any repair you are without your headphones for several days. I have had the same ear on two seperate pair short circuit and stop working. I was asked if I sweat in them. I wear them to the gym so yes that does happen from time to time. I feel for the price of the earphones they should make them sweatproof....overall though I love my beats when they are working properly

    Initially upon reviewing them I had done my research and decided these would be perfect for me, not to mention they were at a discounted price from the original. Once I received them they were definitely smaller than I had expected and they didn’t sound expensive at all. So I made the conscious decision to return them. Maybe perfect gift for kids/ teens but not worth the big bucks for an adult.

    Average Product

    I was so excited to receive this product but after two weeks of using it, i immediately return to BB. The sound quality is not what you would expect from big brand name like apple. It lacks noise cancellation and the music quality is just as good as from those headphones you would get for less than $100. Maybe it just me, but I really didn't like the product. I decided to get airports instead and I love those.

    They look great but umm that is where the rave reviews end. It took 4 times to get to connect to my iPhone, each time I turn them on it’s a hassle to connect and my sound it not as good as my Skullcandy headphone. Definitely not worth the money.

    Sounds crazy but daughter has been well behaved and we got her these for Christmas. She is really pleased with them and is learning to take proper care of quality items. I personally would not want these for myself but the integration with iPad and everything has been easy and stable so far.

    While I enjoy the battery life and style of the beats, the sound quality and ability to block out outside interference is lacking. I would recommend Bose or Sony over Beats.
