    I got a previous version of the beats wireless headphones and it was good. When this thing was on sale, I got them right away. The sound of this new version is much better than the previous version. The biggest advantages for me are: 1) this thing lasts forever before you need to charge it. I traveled to asia and the flight was like 16 hours. I listen to both movies and music for the entire trip and this thing still have more than 60% left for battery. 2) it is very easy to sync it to any Bluetooth devices, even TVs. If you see this thing is on sale, get it. You won’t regret.

    A must have

    I am a big fun of Bose but not in this case. It took me a while to think this over but eventually I decided to give it a try. Oh boy am I happy or what? The quality of sound is outstanding. If not better then Bose. On top of that strait out of the box charge lasted for 3 days. Fully charged it is good to go for about a week! It is really light! I am a big fun of walking - i do about 15 miles a day every day 7 days a week rain or snow. With this headphones it is a pure joy! At the and of the day, when you take theme off you don't feel any difference. One thing you have to keep in mind - when outside temperature goes 32 degree or lower it will shut down. But this is the way lithium-ion batteries handle low temperatures. My solution to that problem is simple - hood over my head and headphones. My rating - 5 stars

    Too muc Pressure

    While they’re not marketed as an ‘over the ear’ headphone—they’re somewhat playing in that field with the studio-headphone quality. I ended up returning my pair within the Best Buy return date because of the ear-ache. It didn’t really take me long to figure out that because of the ‘isolation’ quality, the headphones press your ears into your skull. Over the course of a couple of hours, the cartilage does suffer a bit from the consistant pressure. So while the pain is allieviated by taking them on and off. As an artist by trade, I need to be able to wear a pair of headphones for longer than a couple hours. But the quality is amazing: sound is crisp, isolation is firm & they’re gorgeous headphones. Just the pressure is so tight it was obnoxious and gave me red ears.

    Very good for listening

    These produce good sound for listening to music, but when connecting to your phone, it's not so good, mostly because of the microphone. The audio on the mic is not good. I had a listen using Skyp's audio test and the voice sounds garbled. I updated the firmware and that didn't help. Still, connect these to your computer or other bluetooth enabled device and you can listen to it anywhere within bluetooth range. They are a rather tight fit on the head, but not really uncomfortable. They meet my needs - I wasn't planning on using them for phone calls anyway. I'm enjoying these headphones, I'm just glad I don't need the mic. Not sure if it's a fault with these headphones or if it's typical.

    I am incredibly pleased with these headphones. The first pair I ordered seemed to have a short in one of the ears. It was really easy to exchange them at my Best Buy store. The second set of headphones is amazing. The sound quality is amazing! I wear glasses and I can wear these for a number of hours before they become uncomfortable on my ears. The play/pause button and the volume control on the left earpiece is an added benefit of these headphones. It is nice to be able to control the play/pause feature from the headphones instead of having to fumble for my phone. I wear these headphones everyday at work.

    Poor Quality

    We purchased these headphones and within 10 months the ear pads fell apart and the blue tooth quit working. We replaced the ear pads and eventually sent the headphones back to Apple for repair. This was Apple's response: "Our technicians inspected your product. They say that it would cost more to repair the product than to replace it with a new product. That's because of either the product's condition or unauthorized modifications that were made. We apologize for any inconvenience." I assume that the unauthorized modifications were the ear pads. Very unhappy with Apple.

    Mickey Mouse and decent Beats headphones

    Mickey Mouse and decent Beats headphones. I chose that title and describe these headphones as decent only because I wished they’d made this collaboration with the Studios. The overall sound quality is pretty good and the comfort equals. I love the design and the color. I am probably a little obsessed with Mickey Mouse so these were a must have. The packaging is also top notch. You will not want to throw the packaging away.

    So this review is not being rated for the sound quality or the quality in materials. But how crazy that such an expensive pair of headphones would star dying on me in less than a month. Minding I keep them in their case and I make sure to keep them charge, etc, etc. . Suddenly on Monday of this week I went to put them on as I went to jog and only the left side is working. Seriously just how much is apple going to keep doing this until they loose the trust of their costumers. Best part you can’t put apple care or any other type of insurenace in bestbuy.

    I've gone through 2 pairs in less than 6mos, sound and range are good, not audiophile quality but then again these never claimed to be so for me the sound was great and battery life was amazing, however buying my first pair in Nov, thankfully BestBuy had an extended return policy due to holidays, ended up getting another pair in January thinking I had a faulty pair and first week of April they stopped charging, sent them in to Apple for repair & they tried to hit me up for more money stating it was my fault the headphones weren't working, needless to say I didn't pay them another red cent & now I'm looking for another pair of headphones. I wanted to like these unfortunately for the money you spend you expect these to last longer than 3 months.

    Light, Powerful, Long battery life

    So far these have lived up to their reputation. One thing that stands out is the stellar sound quality these possess. Clear crips highs, deep bass. Setup was very easy. They connected easily to my android phone. I understand that Apple products connect even easier. Battery life so far has been excellent. I can easily use these for several days without needing recharging. The only complaint I have is the ear cups do not fully go around my ears. Now this is more than likely an intentional design but the first time ive not had over the ear headphones completely go over my ears. This does not affect the quality of the sound nor is it uncomfortable to wear, just something I am getting used too.

    I've had my Dre beats for about 1 year now and so far I've had no major issues. Although I hear people complain about the headphones being easy to break I think those people are just clumsy. The headphones battery can last for at least a week and I take mines to the gym for about 2 hours 5 times a week. The only issue I have with the headphones is that I take them to the gym often and it looks like the material that covers your ear does not grip on your ear after sweating so I have to readjust the headphones every now and then. I sweat a lot when I work out so you may not even notice the issue as I did

    Bluetooth headphones for my wife

    I picked up a pair of open item Beats, Solo 3 Wireless headphones for my wife over the holiday season. My hope was to get her to use them in the gym, instead of her EarPods that came with her iPhone. Surprisingly, the Beats headphones come with a cable to hardwire them to your phone, which she has used for business calls when working from home. I have also used them, mainly for the gym and they sound wonderful. My only complaint is the complete elimination of ambient and environmental sound outside of the headphones, since they create a seal around your entire ear. This makes it possible to hear your own footsteps, which can become annoying between tracks. Overall, I was surprised at the build quality, sound quality and battery life, which amazing!

    I needed to find a replacement for my Sony headphones and decided to give these a try. I have to say, the sound quality is some of the best I've ever experienced in a headset. I purchased the Rose Gold color and I'm absolutely in love with them. They are very easy to link to a bluetooth device and very easy to use. I love that the collapse into a little carrying case, which makes protecting them in storage easier. You can easily take calls and the person on the other end can hear me clearly. The battery life is amazing. I opted for this model because of the longer battery life. I wanted to test the life, so I haven't charged them since I received them and the battery is still going. For that reason alone, these are definitely worth checking out.

    Great battery

    First thing the battery life is awesome! I charged them when I received them which was around Feb and its May and they barely died on me. I use them at least 4-5 days for the gym so battery definitely lasts. The grip is good they don't fall off during an intense workout session, they do bother a little after having them on for a long time but nothing too bad. I did get the rose gold, would recommend getting a different color because it is white on the inside and easily gets dirty. Downfall is the sound quality should be a lot better for the price, it doesn't catch details in songs as much, it needs work on the bass. Overall a good product it just falls short on the sound.

    Bought these for my kid. I’d say she is spoiled (she is) but this time I made her work for them. They sat in the closet, unopened, while she earned the money to pay me back. BB had an awesome sale so... She really, truly tested them on a road trip. 7 hours of nonstop use still had her almost fully charged. She loves them. The ear pads are soft leather—think luxury car leather seats. Sound is good. Bluetooth connection was easy. Turned the headphones on and it prompted her phone and mine to connect. I want a pair now, but I have to save to get mine.

    I mention the garage because my side job is auto detailing. A lot of times I am up close and personal with the dual action buffer, and it is a fairly loud tool. I knew I needed some wireless headphones like these and I'm so glad I bought these. I love zoning in with music or podcasts while I polish paint in my shop! Yes, after a long time they were make your ears a little sore, but I just use that timing as a way to take a break! Comfort, sound and abilities are A+ from me. I answer phone calls and can talk/schedule cars while I am still working. Definitely made me more efficient. As an added bonus there are a ton of colors to choose from and they all look great!

    They are headphones

    They have good volume and clear sound but really I’m not a headphone critic. I have a bit of a small head so the band doesn’t really fit snug. There is about a two finger gap up top on the smallest adjustable setting. They start to hurt my ears after about 45 minutes because that fit is pretty snug which is probably the only reason why they stay on my head. I can hear my TV when I’m running my carpet cleaner though so purpose served. I got them because they are on sale so I feel like they are regularly overpriced. They are inconsistent with working for phone calls.

    Solo3 Best of the Breed for Music Lovers

    I had used Boss various models, and found they all lacked that crispy bass Solo3 had. With the 40 hrs battery time, I rarely had to worry about to recharge it. I wore it on the train to work, or at home working on my PC, the reception of of the phone to my iPhone is much better than my sports Blue Tooth earphone. I loved all sorts of music, and it played back so well on classical, pop, new age, rock and drums and piano all alike. Having looking at many other options, I found this is the best one I have ever had for over 20 years. I have a big head, and it fits me well. The construction is flawless. Best of the all, the music is so real, crispy, rich on bass, and adaptive to all sorts of music styles.

    These headphones are some of the best options, especially when they're on sale. They fold, include a case, are very light, don't apply excessive pressure on your head/ears, have superb sound and hold a long charge. The only thing missing in this series is a noise cancellation feature. Even if it isn't ANC just a NC feature by itself would help. Anyway when they're on sale they're very much worth it. Bought them for $169.99 on a deal of the day. I'd recommend JBL 65 series with noise cancellation over these Beats any day when they are not on sale. Hope it helps.

    As a not so positive advocate of Beats products, I must say, These are the bomb. I have an iPhone 7 and combined with the Solo 3's, it's almost like I don't have to have my phone on me ever. Why? The W1 chip in it works directly with the iPhone 7 bringing bluetooth to a whole new level! Sound quality is something that apple turned around when it comes to the beats line. The reason I was never a fan of beats in the past is because it was expensive and didn't sound " expensive". But now with the new Solo 3's. It's insanity. When I run It's like I'm trapped inside of my own little world. If I need to make a phone call, it's easy and sounds good. PEOPLE CAN HEAR ME. Overall, a really good product. I love it.
