    Excellent Sound Quality

    First off, I was really hesitant to buy these because of the price. I have never spent anywhere near as much money as these cost for any type of headphones, but I am so glad I did! The sound quality is AMAZING! You feel like the musicians are in the same room as you giving a concert. Movies also sound like you are in the theater and have soround sound audio. I hate dealing with earbuds because they constantly fall out of my ears when I'm jogging, so that is what originally got me to look at Beats. I also love that they are wireless, because I get super annoyed by headphone cords when I'm trying to work out. The only negative feedback I will give for these is that I wish they fit a woman's head better. My headphones are not extended at all, and still fit a little loose on the head. Not enough where it is bothersome, but I still wish it could be just a tad snugger for security purposes. Overall, this was a great buy, and I highly recommend these headphones.

    First Cordless Headphones

    I have avoided the cordless headphones for quite some time now as although I know the sound level of headphones have reaching an amazing level, the WI-fi aspect and battery levels have never impressed me. Beats by Dr Dre however came so well reviewed that I finally took the chance. I am a late owl and tend to stay up til 2 or 3 am watching television but with the notoriously thin walls in my apartment, I was worried about disturbing my neighbors. I purchased these headphones thinking that I could charge them each day after using them the night before and as long as I am only wearing them while in bed, I wont have a problem with range. Well, I discovered that even with 3-4 hours a night usage, I only need to charge them about once a week. As to range, I have now gone to every room inside my 2 bedroom apartment as well as outside in the hallway without any interference.

    Not Bad - Not Great

    These aren't a terrible set of headphones. However for its price point, I think you'll find better sounding and more comfortable headphones on the market. I don't think you'll be dissapointed if you purchase these - but I don't necessarily think you'll be wowed either. They do sound better than the last several iterrations of the Beats Solo line. At half the price though, the Jaybird X4 sports earbuds sound better and are much more comfortable than these. The Jaybirds even offer better passive noise cancellation than these. If you're looking for on ear cans - sure, test these out in the store, but you'd be re-missed not explore other options from Audio Technica or Senheisser that will simply blow these out of the water.

    Good headphones if you don't need noise cancelling. With music on, they pretty much do cancel out most background noises. I use them to stay focused at work. The wireless capability is one of the better features so you're not strangling yourself on the wires or accidentally yanking them out of a phone/PC. And the range on them is fairly decent. I can go several rooms away from my phone and still have perfect playback. I'm having difficulty getting them to wirelessly connect to my Chromebook (so docking 1 star). It may not be a manufacturer issue on the headphones themselves, but since Beats is now owned by Apple, they are giving preferential software treatment to other Apple products, so not out of the realm of possibility that they don't work as well with Android systems due to this. Thankfully, there is a wired connection included that I can use with my Chromebook.

    I went to Best Buy to buy the new Bose wireless headphones. I left there with 2 sets of Dr. Dre Wireless3 headphones. Why? The sound quality, in my opinion, is exceptional on both brands! I went with the Dr. Dre's because of the great price and color choices. I bought the Gold color for myself. The color "gold" is innacurate. It actually looks more like the rose gold on iPhone 8's, a matte soft pink w/rose gold highlight's. Great color! The sound clarity is great weather listening or talking on your phone. Set up is super easy and dummy proof. I was hooked up in less than a minute. If I could make a suggestion to the manufacturer of these it would be to make the zippered carrying case were slightly larger. It's a challenge making the headphone's fit In order to close the zipper. Other than that, I'm VERY happy with my purchase!

    Yes, you read that correctly! I've been struggling with trying to find a good bluetooth headset that would be comfortable enough to fall asleep in (I am a side/stomach sleeper with the SnoreMaster next to me). I have tried everything from the earbuds used for monster truck drivers, construction, etc. Then I moved to my wireless headset to listen to music to muffle the snores, but they kept falling out of my ear. I'm good now. Actually, I am better than good! THESE things are great!!!! Comfy, squishy, they fit my small head and the sound is incredible. I wear them when I work out, when I mow, and when I sleep. They charge when I am just putzin' around during the day. The ONLY downfall: It gets a little damp around the ears because of the material, but wipes easily! Paired quick and easily with all of my devices1.

    Small, Convenient, Good Sound

    Yes, they're Beats. They tend to get a bad wrap, but these really are good headphones. They're on-ear, which means they're smaller than over-ear, but not as annoying as in-ear. Apple's new W1 chip and the integrated automatic connection to all devices using the same iCloud account make these extremely convenient. I use a few mac computers between home and work, plus my iPhone and iPad. Connecting these to my iPhone the first time was simple, and now they are automatically paired with all of my other devices. The 40-hour battery is amazing and lasts me well beyond a week. The dual microphones are really pretty excellent for a set of bluetooth headphones. While $300 sounds steep for headphones, when you consider that you'll have them for 5+ years, $60 a year isn't really too bad. Well worth the money.

    Galaxy note 5 user

    Got these beats solo 3 in rose gold for my birthday and they are pretty awesome. I read some things about it not working the same for Android as ios but here is what I see. On my note 5 all I have to do is turn beats on and it automatically connects. The range is insane. I can leave my phone inside and go out to street (around another house) and not lose connection. I have yet to charge it but I also mostly use the cord. The reason I use the cord is because when connected via Bluetooth to my Note 5 the volume will not go above what's seems to me about 40% of what it is WITH the cord. I connected my beats to a friends iphone wirelessly and got 100% sound. Pretty bummed about that. When the wire is connected the skip song and whatnot sometimes won't work which also sucks but I kinda wonder if that isn't user error. I personally love them but it seems to me would definitely be best with iPhone.

    Solid Mainstream Headphones

    Got these headphones for my wife but decided try them out. Beats being ultra popular and mainstream, I figured they would be overrated. To my surprise, I found these headphones to be solid and get quite loud. Although I find this product to be a bit on the bassy side and a little muddy, It's actually quite good if you are into Hip Hop and Rock, for what it is. However, If you are into electronic music with a lot of layers, these are probably not the best choice. Comfort-wise they aren't the best, but I didn't find them to be uncomfortable either. Battery-life is very good, will get at least a days worth of heavy use on battery. All in all, solid headphones that are fashionable.

    NEVER BUY. GARBAGE STAY AWAY

    I bought these for my girlfriend last yr for mothers day. I originally gave these headohones (rose gold) 3 stars. I tried to update my review but couldnt. I now give them 1 star. After 5 months of use, the headphones started to come apart. She took them to apple, while still under warrenty, they said it will be repaired or replaced. A few hrs later she was contacted and was told it will cost $130 to repair due to ware and tear. $300 headphones and in less then 6months fall apart. To be charged any kind of money to repair these garbage headphones is pure robbery. NEVER EVER BUY BEATS HEADPHONES. The sound is average and the service is 100x worse.

    Good sound, but white gets dirty

    I’m not an headphone expert... I’ve only owned whatever headphones come with the iPhones. But my headphones died and the extension also passed on. So it was a sign. The sound is good. I have no complaints in that department. And it’s my first time owning Bluetooth headphones, so yay for wireless. HOWEVER, the white earpieces got dirty the first time I wore them, so beware! And I haven’t figured out how to clean them. Also, I wear glasses and they press behind my ear, so it gets painful after I wear them for like an hour. And I learned a new rule of thumb: don’t get over the ear headphones for the gym. They get sweaty. Yuck. Therefore, I would recommend these to my unathletic friend who loves dark colors and has 20/20 vision. Jk. I do like them.

    Yeah these look cool, the sound is better than average. Too much bass for my taste but I bought these to workout with so it doesn't matter. They are comfortable and sit well on the head, and battery life is amazing. What I don't understand is when you pay $300 for headphones why they give you such a cheap flimsy and tight case. It's hard to get the headphones in and out because it's such a tight fit. When I received them they were so tightly packed that the right ear cup is completely smashed/ dented and doesn't lay right on the ear. They don't even sell a better case option on the site. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep these yet. I'm not sure if it's even worth the sale price. Or maybe I'm just picky, but $250/$320 with tax is a lot of money for something with just good sound and a horrible case that actually ruins the product instead of protects it.

    Charging doesn't work

    I went with my husband to pick these out for my birthday. I've never owned a pair that was super excited to get them. They worked good for about a month. The sound quality was really good however, the charging stopped working. At first I thought it was my plug so I tried a different one. I did all these different troubleshooting methods and nothing seemed to work. I bought the warranty but it's unfortunate for her only after a month, I'm having to use it. I hope they don't send me a refurbished one. This is really not what I expected for the the price that I paid… I should have done more research. For the price that these are, charging should not be an issue.

    I love being able to talk on the cell phone with these headphones Can hear much clearer Like on a land line Like that I can plug in my phone and leave the bedroom Heck I can even get reception in the front yard Listen to a lot of you tube and it’s very clear sounding and of course so is the music I take walks with the dog and just leave my phone in my pocket. Use everyday and I am 100%happy with my beats The grey is a very pretty color too so light it’s almost white but being a tiny bit darker I think it shows less dirt They still look new after 3 weeks and I am a bit hard on my products Don’t baby them for sure. If you are thinking about getting these Just do it You won’t regret it

    I got my Beats Solo3 Wireless in January of 2017 and have loved them every time I used them. My only complaint for the first few months was that one of the clips that lock the headphones in place broke after a few months. Besides that, they worked fine. No biggie. I used them on every trip I went on, many days at school, and many late nights working on assignments. The pairing process was super seamless and worked great each time. However, after having them for 23 months, the right side quit working. Wonderful. Super annoying that they didn't last 2 years as much as they cost. I really want to buy another pair, but as careful as I was with these, why on earth did they break after less than two years?

    Either way too loud or way too quiet

    These headphones have somewhere around 15-20 volume levels. I never make it past 4. Unfortunately these headphones make a HUGE leap in volume level from the third setting to the fourth. So I either have to listen to music way too quietly or way too loudly. I tried contacting their customer support and they blamed the issue on the device I was connected to.This issue persists regardless of which device I'm connected to and I use other headphones without issue to the same devices. It's unfortunate that they didn't want to try to help with the issue. These are otherwise a pretty good pair of headphones because of the battery life and comfort, the volume issue just makes them hard to use. I purchased these from a popular brick-and-mortar store not Amazon (they were just cheaper at the time), but figured the masses read these reviews more often.

    Bought these headphones because I love their big brother, the Studio3's but wanted something a little lighter for the gym. The sound quality didn't disappoint, though the base was lacking compared to the over-ear version. I was impressed by the mid-range stability and overall performance. Still, I had to return them after only a few days of use because the on-ear design was just not comfortable for my large head and larger ears. I'd highly recommend these for teenagers and anyone with smaller cranium, but for me, I'll stick with the noise-canceling big boys for now. Guess my buds will have to suffice in the gym for now...

    These are good. Of course there are better but I personally didn't want to have huge headphones on so these were a good size to me. I DID NOT get the Bluetooth range everyone else is bragging about. Maybe it's just me or maybe everyone else is misjudging the actual distance they're truly getting in Bluetooth. I got about 100" feet before the music started breaking up and I needed to get back to my phone. I know this because I just had my fence installed and I just walked down the fence line. The bass is good as expected but I listen to rap and r&b mostly. I wasn't disappointed. I will say the price is to high. I would say these should sell for $200 not on sale. Other than that they're a good buy to me.

    Good Sound but fragile - Get the warranty

    This is the second pair of Beats I have purchased for my son over the past 3 years. Needless to say the first pair were Beats Studio and they had a great sound and withstood the pounding a teenager would put them through. Since they outlasted the warranty, I opted not to obtain a warranty on the second pair. This was a huge mistake. The second purchase were the beats solo. I purchased these because they had the latest and greatest technology but were more fragile that expected. 3 weeks into the purchase, the Beats solo fell off his head and broke along the middle of the head piece. I had Studios that lasted 3 years and only 3 weeks, my sons Beats solo were now unusable.

    I purchased the Jaybirds X3 first and after the 1st pair being defective and exchanging them for a 2nd pair I ultimately ended up returning them because I was dissatisfied with them. I bought these pair in the silver color. They were pre-owned. I absolutely love them. I charged them once so far and its been about 2 months. I've only used them slightly but I am impressed by the battery life. They are comfortable and high quality. I must admit that they are higher on the price and I wouldn't have purchased them outright for $300. I ended up getting credit for returning the Jaybirds and only paid the difference in price which was about $100 due to them being pre-owned. Because of this they are named already and I haven't found how to change this, that my only downside to it but other than that they are awesome!
