    I can understand the appeal...

    While perhaps not acheiving the lofty technical standards a true audiophile might require, I can understand the appeal of these headphones for their target audience. These headphones were a Christmas gift for my teenage son, and he loves them. I must admit they are very comfortable, and they really do sound good.... though for the price, they had better! Much of the appeal comes from their stylish looks, cordless listening and rapid recharge, but the real appeal is in being "cool" as judged by his peers. I would be unlikely to purchase them myself, but as a gift for a style conscious teen, they are indeed a nice set of headphones.

    Amazing Sound

    The Solo 3 is my first headphone purchase. I did not know music could sound so good..I was sold on the 40 hour battery life and 5 minute charge up..Unfortunately I had to exchange for the Studio 2 due to the Solo 3 really hurt my ears and was too tight..I have a really Big Head so its my fault..I was upset that the Solo 3 had a really cheap looking soft cloth case that gives no protection..Paying this much for headphones there should be a nicer case included. The Studio 2 has a hard nicer case and has a much better feel on the ears for me.. Thank You Best Buy for the Great Black Friday Sales price and for the easy exchange..

    Worth The Money

    I wanted beats but they are too expensive and rather spend money on things like school tuition / bills. I bought a pair for my husband who loved them when he finally opened them. I think he felt they were too expensive too! He loves them ( in black). My 9 yr old then wanted a pair- I found these on sale and we both use them. I love them because I could exercise and enjoy music while the rest of the family is in the same room watching tv. Hopefully, I can find another good sale so that I can have my own beats

    I was hesitant to drop some serious cash on headphones, but I've had these for just shy of a month and wear them every day for walking the dog and tanning by the pool. I can't quite give them 5 stars because I'm a girl and even the smallest size slides off my head when I bend over to sit down or pet the dog. But this rose gold that I was also nervous about wanting to look classy over trendy was right on point!

    I love my Beats Solo3 headphones so much! The sound quality is really great, and they block out other sounds. The only thing I didn’t like was the return and exchange policy on them, Best Buy should at least give you a month even if you’re not an elite member. I just wanted to get a different color than the one I had. And they’re kind of expensive but definitely worth every penny. Other than that the headphones are great I use them when working out, doing homework, and for everything else. They really do make you hear music in a new way, I am going to be getting another pair in the color I want soon!

    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.

    Great product. Sound quality is very good and on par with my older Beats Solo 2 wired; actually I can't tell the difference. Critics often bash Beats for their sound quality but I find them to be accurate, clear, loud and balanced. Wireless range is not an issue with my iPhone 7+ and the battery life is crazy!!! The W1 chip makes pairing a breeze and keeps you connected. The Solo 3's are also quite comfortable; I use them when I exercise at least four days per week. Would I pay full price ($300) for these? I think I would. But I don't have to worrry about that thanks to Amazon! Arrival time was only a few days even with standard shipping. No complaints.

    Bought these for my wife before a trip to Norway to use on the plane. I bought a "new"set on eBay only to find out they were fake. Seriously, get the beats updater application, it will verify your headphones are genuine. They work ok, sound good, but at this point you're only paying for the name. I personally use Sony headphones and at less than the cost of these, they also give noise cancelling and full over ear. They still feel high quality, and sound good, so she is very happy and I am happy best buy sells real products!

    The sound quality is as good as it gets with Beats. I saw reviews previously about the cushions being tough but they are pretty comfy, but can't expect to wear them for a long time as they are on-ear headphones. I love that the battery lasts for a long time, except still not sure how fast the "fast charge" is because it charges fairly quickly but not sure if it is as fast as it says. The Apple integration is definitely a plus in terms of connection, i can easily switch between my phone and Watch.

    I already own a pair of Solo 2 Beats and they sound great. If you like a tight bass sound then these are for you. However, considering the size of these, they will get uncomfortable after a while. The on-the-ear fit is exactly what they will be. I have small ears and they still get annoying after a while. I probably will exchange them for the Studio 3 which have a bigger ear cup and sound a little different. Depending if you value sound over comfort, go with the Solo 3. If comfort and extended wear is what you want then the Studio 3 is better. Beware of the price difference though!

    I have Beats Studio and Bose QC25. I wanted to go to Bose QC 35, but they specifically state not intended for TV viewing. Well my Solo 3 sound great with the 4K mayhem on TV as well as the dialog and ambient sound. They are a little strong on bass, but I enjoy that. The W1 chip is amazing. I can keep track of the game, or listen to my tunes all over the house, through walls and stairs. They pair super fast with all Apple products and my Samsung TV. I run and bike with Jaybirds, but Solo 3 is my go to everywhere else.

    These headphones are great for sound and connecting wireless to your bluetooth capable device. I usually connect these to my iphone or my tablet to listen to music, video chat or talking on the phone. It has great battery power and charges super fast! Even if you forget to charge it you can still use them with the cord that comes in the box and it will be wired headphones then. My only problem is when I wear them at work it gets pretty hot wearing them and it sweats under my ears with the foam in the headphones. I would suggest the powerbeats for working out or wearing to work instead. Overall, great durable longlasting headphones!

    Best all-round premium headphones

    Of all the various bluetooth headphones I've bought and used over the years, these are by far the best! They offer GOOD sound with a nice full range while still being light, compact, and durable. The plastic is flexible but still strong and I don't feel like it's going to break off as I pull them off my head. The ear pads are comfortable, and still small enough to just cover my ears. Although there could be more media control buttons on the headset; just volume up/down and play/pause - (seriously, where's the forward/backward button?) I'm still loving my Beats solo3wireless headset. BEST ONE EVER.

    I purchased these headphones about three weeks ago. I use them on my daily train commute and at my desk. They’re lightweight, portable, sound great, and the W1 chip makes use with Apple devices as beautiful as the Apple AirPods. I love my AirPods for working out, but I like the added isolation I get with the on-ear design of the Beats Solo3 when commuting or at my desk. The option to use as wired headphones seems useful and the battery life is superb. I haven’t recharged them yet! I highly recommend to anyone considering these wireless headphones.

    I travel a lot and I fly on airplanes which have a lot of noise, I bought the sony headphones first cause a friend recommended them, he liked the bass, but my first flight I felt they were very noisy, they are not noise suppressing or anything, but neither are these. I was determined to go back and listened to more headphones, so I went to the apple store and Best Buy and found that the on the ear not over the ear seemed for me to fit better and even the bose and other brands did not sound as good. I enjoy these and think they sound great they are my go to travel headphones I always have them in my backpack or suitcase

    Easily pairs with the latest iPhones and iPads as soon you power on these headphones. Just like the Solo 2 wireless it replaced, these uses the similar headband and drivers. Only difference between Solo 2 wireless and these is the inclusion of Apple’s W1 chip which allow for a seamless paring with Apple devices and the range is pretty impressive, I can leave my iPhone upstairs and walk downstairs with these still being connected without interference or interruption with the signal.

    Love how easily these connect with apple products and not having a wire was a game changer. I didn't even realize how often one gets in my way until I started using these. Eating at my desk? Nothing hanging in the way. Need to grab something out of a nearby file cabinet? Just go grab it. Don't have to take off the headphones or hit the pause button. I now use them everyday. I've also jogged and taken the dog for long walks with them and they were very comfortable and stuck snugly to my head. I'm not an audiophile, so I won't embarrass myself by commenting on the sound, but I definitely like what I hear. Would buy again!

    Sound quality is good, comfort is good, build quality is good. All around these headphones are good headphones. Nothing too spectacular like start of the art sound, and anything of the sort. But for me, these are a wonderful all around general use type of headphones. Where they surpass other headphones is the battery life and ease of use when using them with iOS devices (running iOS 10 and higher). I've owned these for about a month know and I just charged them for the third time yesterday. The battery life just keeps on going! It's amazing. I'd recommend these to anyone.

    Bought these as my gym headphones. I use them for workouts in the gym, running, and even for traveling. They are comfortable on the ears, don't feel too snug or anything. They are comfortable for my long flights on planes as well. The base and sound quality are great overall, as with most Beats products. I've had these for awhile and enjoy them. You get great sound quality with comfort. I do wish there was more adjust-ability to make them smaller, but they expand to be rather large if needed.

    I've been using these almost everyday, sometimes twice a day, in the gym for the last 6 months, and they are awesome. The battery lasts forever; I only have to charge them maybe once every 2 weeks, and they charge fast. The button on the side can pause, skip track (double click), turn the volume up/down, and scan for Bluetooth when trying to connect. No problems with them falling off unless I'm hanging almost upside down, and even then they stay on most of the time. They block out noise really well. These headphones were definitely worth it.
