The music you listen to in your earphones should capture all the sonic details the artist wanted you to hear. But normal headphones can't deliver the rich, full sound in today's digital audio tracks, especially not smaller, lightweight headphones. But Solos high performance headphones, which are designed for today's active lifestyles, deliver sound so real, you'll be amazed it's all coming from something so compact and portable.

Top 100 Electronics Reviewer

These headphones are by no means perfect, and for the money this might be prohibitive for some people. The main flaw is that the higher range of sound isn't as strong as the excellent and thumping bass. The result is still a superior sound to most sub 100 pounds headphones, but perhaps not as good as other mid-range models.

The bass on these is astonishing- clear, thumping, and never muddy or dull. It can, however, overwhelm higher sounds so if you enjoy bass-heavy music expect this to be the most prominent sound you hear.

I listen to a range of music, blues, world, and rock mostly, and everything has sounded crisp and strong through the Beats Solo.

The design of the headphones are excellent- a really classy design and the finish is particularly stylish. The earcups sit on the ear, rather than over it, and as such you do get some noise leaking. So expect people around you to hear some of your music.

The construction and quality can't be faulted- even the cable is tangle-proof. In addition to controlling your iPod, the controls also work with a MacBook. Since this will be my primary source, it was a welcome and unexpected bonus.

These are my first higher-value headphones, and I'm not disappointed. Are they worth the money? Hard to commit either way- great design, great bass, and a strong overall sound, but these won't be mistaken for the very best in high-end audio headphones, but then again they are half the price of these top end models.

Conclusion: recommended for those looking for great sound in a stylish and well constructed design.

Pros:
-Superb music quality, unlike anything I have experienced before (Fall in love with your favourite tunes all over again)
-Looks incredible, always getting people asking and wanting to see them
-Easy to carry around when folded up/in the case
-Talk control, I can use with my iPhone
-Very comfortable, fits every shape or size head
-Very professional

Cons:
-Very weak, I have only had them for just under a month and I am on my second pair (Be very careful when taking them off or putting them on)

Overall, they are totally worth the money. Would recommend to serious music lovers, just; be very careful with them.

 Amazing Quality

I was first unsure about getting them due to the price and a few comments i saw about them being fragile, but in all honestly i have had mine for about 5 months now and they are in perfect condition i do not polish it every night and put it in its case, but i mainly fall asleep with in on my head and it keeps in shape, the sound quality is also good, i use youtube converter and that usualy takes all the quality away but the Solo beats re-store it, also they are very comfy and almost cut out all sound when on your ears....GREAT BUY!
