    Best Headphones Ever

    I bought these because the brand has a good reputation and they were on sale- so I figured it was worth a gamble. After putting them on and pairing them with my phone, when the first song came on I realized that I had never heard music with such clarity and depth before. No matter your style of music, the Beats Solo3 are a great choice. They come with a carrying case, and the ends fold slightly, so they can be used for travel. Obviously bulkier than some of the cheapest headphones, but you won't get sound like this. I went back and bought two more sets for my family.

    I have to admit, I am a Apple Fanboy. With that said, I still didn't want to get a product "just because". I watched the keynote, and waited for these to come out. The W1 technology, 40hr. battery life, build quality and sound is superb. I use the these on everything from my iPhone, iPad & iMac. But where it shines is when I'm up late watching my shows or a movie and don't want to disturb my family, these rock on the AppleTV, although you do have to go into the settings and connect them everytime, not as simple as the other iOS devices. But, no hassle. Snug fit, but the wear is comfortable enough for me. These were a great buy! I found the black open box ones on sale at my local BestBuy. You'll love 'em too.

    I've been dealing with wired headphones (also by Beats) for too long so I thought it was a good idea to get something else. I have an iPhone 7+ so it was a pain having both wired headphones AND a separate dongle to buy. It was too much money to go like that forever so I happened to find these. The sound quality is amazing and they're very comfortable. The charge lasts forever and it charges really quick and I was very shocked. I was expecting a long charge but these took around an hour or so to get to 100%. Overall I'm very happy with what I got and I hope

    NOT Practical

    Posted
    SalPal

    I figured i treat myself for my birthday to get a beautiful rose gold bluetooth headset from Beatz. My objective use for these would be for the gym. after purchasing and trying it out at the store and getting feedback from a GF who already has a pair, i confirmed these would not be practical for active gym use ( Cardio, circuits). Headset felt filmsy like it was about to fall off. Only advantage is the soundproof and high quality sound you get. this item is geared for more causal, normal walking, light jogging. but not for running as my GF experienced she soaks her headphones after every run. I actually went with the PowerBeatz3-wireless, which was more a secure fit same perfect sound quality.

    Beats Solo3

    Best Buy Stores do not seem to be properly equipped to handle Apple product displays. All 3 displays in the store I visited were not functioning, so I was unable to test/demo the product before purchasing. The employees didn't seem to care and said only Apple was authorized to handle the displays. The BB employees were also unfamiliar with the product, unsure of which solo series one of the color options belonged to, as it was not properly labeled on the display. The audio quality is great, and the new Bluetooth chip connects to devices very easily. The one draw back of the headphones is the inability to move between tracks forward/backward, with a button on the headphone, vs. going back to your phone.

    Stylish, yet gives good sound.

    Let's be honest, DreBeats are stylish and holds a status symbol in our culture. But is it a good product? DreBeats gives good sound. Although you can buy cheaper headphones that gives good sound, I like that my DreBeats connect flawlessly with my Apple system--my iPhone and MacBook Pro. I can simply switch my connections with just a button on my Apple product and I'm easily switching from listening to music from my iPhone or listening to a movie on my computer. I like that the headphones are portable and has its own travel pouch because the headphones are foldable. My only problem is that with prolong use, the DreBeats might feel a little uncomfortable on your ears, depending on the size of your ears.

    Great headphones

    I suffer from inner ear issues. Using noise cancellation headphones is not an option for me because of this due to the nausea I experience. These headphones are NOT noise cancelling through white noise, and instead create a tight seal on my ears, effectively removing most of the chatter happening while I work. The sound quality from these headphones is also quite amazing. The mids and highs are as good as you would expect, and the bass is astounding too. In fact, some songs have such great bass that I have to turn the sound down. The controls are simple and intuitive. Pairing with my Bluetooth devices is also a snap. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.

    I bought these and really wanted to like them. They have the W1 chip and that appealed to me. They paired easily and sounded fine. Then they wouldn't turn off, wouldn't charge, wouldn't reset, wouldn't pair and wouldn't even turn back on after being charged overnight. I took them back, got another pair and the same thing happened. I searched for solutions on line and this is a big problem on these headsets. The lady at Best Buy said they are returned often and they aren't allowed to sell extended protection plans on them. That tells you something. So, I am now deciding between Bose and Sony!

    Hurts on ears

    Posted

    The sound quality is amazing and the bass is awesome my problem is I could not have them on my head more than 10 to 15 minutes without it hurting my ears. I was constantly having to rearrange it ! For the price I was not going to be in pain and it felt so fragile. Gets dirty very easy and the case was semi small, had to squeeze headphones in, to close it! You can only wear them for a short period amount of time . These headphones really block outside noise, if it didn't hurt or feel such a pressure on the ears I would give 5stars, easily connected to my iwatch 2, and iPhone, was impressed! But now I returned them and Just ordered the AirPods which I won't even get until June2017

    Great Sound and Battery Life

    These headphones have plenty of bass and volume. They are not for the true audiophile, but if you like rich bass then these may be for you. I use these for both music and audio books. They sound great for both. The stated 40 hours of battery life is awesome. I haven't had the chance to fully test the accuracy of the 40 hours, but I have been using the Solo3's for about a week and have only charged them once when I first got them. The Bluetooth connection is strong as I am able to move further away from my phone without losing connection than I can with any other pair of Bluetooth headphones that I own. The headphones look nice and are comfortable to wear.

    Surprisingly Good

    We can all say that beats suck and that the quality is poor and that true music cannot be played on them - but music is matter of taste and how that is played is also a matter of taste. Unless you are in the studio when they recorded in you may never get the true sound. Having said all of that, these headphones have certainly improved from the last time I tried a pair. Beats in the past were extremely bass heavy and these now have a more natural sound. The one thing I found a problem with was the mid range, it was a little muddy and lacked the clarity that I prefer. Top end was also a little missing. Overall though beats are getting better and listening to customers.

    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.

    I finally purchased Beats Solo 3’s after many months of procrastination, and I’m so glad that I did! I love the various color options for them, and the rose gold color is absolutely stunning! However, I will warn that at first the beats are not the most comfortable for long wear. Since they go directly on your ear, prolonged wear will make your ears sore. But after a week or so, your ears will get used to the pressure and the pads on the Beats will soften, and the headphones will become comfortable. The battery life is also amazing, as it lasts for many hours! I love my Beats, and the higher price point was so worth it!

    I have used these in just about every area that I find myself in. Work: I work in a factory, and these won’t kill all the sound you can still hear clearly what you are listening to while also staying alert to any sounds coming from around you. Work out: They do fit snuggly and don’t often fall off while running. Don’t recommend for boxing. Gaming: Great audio however the receiver is little more then a low quality audio receiver. But it is not designed for making audio. Battery life: I think I spent 2 full work days with it, without needing to charge it. However it does not stand up to cold very well.

    I bought these for my son. He loves the sound quality when listening to music. He also uses them when he’s DJ’ing. The mic is good quality and background noise cancellation is good. Somewhat pricey but worth it because he loves them and uses them everyday. I can say after a while of use the beats usually stop Working or you cannot hear sound in both ears. They are replaceable sometimes for a small fee. This is the second pair I purchased. Only had them since May 2019.

    I purchased these headphones to go with my iPhone 7 as an accessory. The easy pairing is great. The sound quality is good, and the volume is very loud. All things I wanted in these headphones. My biggest complaint is the battery. The 30 hours is unattainable with moderate use. Also, as a college student in Minnesota, I walk about 4 blocks to classes. These headphones are incredibly temperature intolerant, making them unusable to me unless I stay indoors. This is a major draw back for headphones designed for portability at this price point. I also own a pair of Skull Candy Hesh 2 wireless, the volume is not as loud but otherwise I am much happier with SC's for half the price.

    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

    They are great headphones, but for the price I expected more. Honestly after trying these, then comparing them to my hyper x gaming headset my 50$ headphones where louder. I will say that the beats had a more crisp sound, but to be honest for the same price you can get bose headphones. Beats compared to Bose can’t even come close to the quality and sound of bose. The only thing beats does better is they look better and that is where the perks end. Overall they are a good headphone, but if you are looking for headphones and are not set on a brand, I would look elsewhere. These are great quality, but I expect more for the price.

    I reviewed these Beats headphones before purchase and understood that I was getting a mediocre product in terms of sound range but good enough for an average joe like myself. What I didnt anticipate is that just a few weeks after purchase that I wireless function would stop working. After googling the problem I found that my situation was not uncommon and there was no current fix for this. I had to send in my headphones for repair which obviously leads to time without use. The only upside was that I bought the headphones on sale so the difference in price between the Beats and the wireless Bose was large enough to make considering the Bose prohibitive.

    Third pair

    My eldest son is currently on his third pair of these headphones. Recommendation for parents who let them take them to school is to make sure tour child is old enough or responsible enough to take care of them. Our first pair broke, second was stolen, and currently on the third. Obviously, we like beats as a brand or we would not keep purchasing them. The sound quality is of no issue, it is a breeze to connect to Bluetooth, and there are no issues with them falling off. I would definitely recommend these for not only a child but an adult who is looking for a sound product.
