Beats Solo 2

 

Fans of booming low-end won't be disappointed by the Beats Solo 2 headphones' powerful bass and distortion-free audio performance.

Powerful, distortion-free audio with boosted bass and bright highs. Lightweight, comfortable fit. Inline remote control and microphone for mobile devices

Big bass sound isn't for purists or anyone seeking flat response. Slightly overpriced

By now, headphone enthusiasts should know the drill with Beats: If you love big, booming bass, read on, and if you want a flat-response, critical listening-appropriate headphone pair, move on past the Beats Solo 2 (maybe to the Editors' Choice...

Beats Solo 2 review: Beats' next-gen on-ear headphone steps up its design and sound

 

It's been a long time coming, but a day after Beats officially announced its sale to Apple for $3 billion, it released the successor to its on-ear Solo , one of the most popular headphones in the world. The new, improved Solo 2 carries a list price of...

The Beats Solo 2 on-ear headphones are sturdier and better-sounding than the original Solos, with somewhat more balanced sound and strong, tight bass. They offer a relatively comfortable fit and have an inline remote and microphone for making cell...

Fairly pricey; some people may find they fit too snug.

These Solo 2 may not win audiophile hearts and ears, but for its intended audience -- namely, folks who are looking for a fast, exciting headphone with lots of high-quality bass -- this is an excellent on-ear headphone.

The Solo 2 looks a lot like a mini version of Beats' revamped over-ear Studio (2013) headphone. For starters, the earpads have been redesigned with swankier materials that make the headphones slightly more comfortable and should hold up better over...

Beats Solo 2 Review

 

The Beats Solo 2 are an updated version of a popular pair of headphones, but do they sound good enough to justify the asking price?

Beats Solo 2 review

 

Beats get better in the new Beats Solo 2 headphones

Improved sound ; Neat look ; Good isolation

Bullish bass ; Headband is a bit tight

Beats Solo 2 review

 

Comfortable and portable enough but these cans lack the killer sound quality needed at this level

Solid, hefty bass No hardness or brightness to the sound

Short on subtlety and dynamics They struggle to adapt to changes in pace

The top picks at this money, such as the B&O H2s and Philips M1MKIIs sound clearer, more exciting and deliver rhythms with more care and greater finesse. The Solo 2s do the job – the problem is that rival cans do it better for similar money. MORE: Best...

Beats Solo2 Headphones: Australian Review

 

I've never really liked Beats headphones. I think they look gaudy, they're overpriced, and they're aimed at buyers more concerned with fashion than frequency response. For all these reasons, I'm really conflicted about the new Beats Solo2 — since...

After weighing up the pros and cons of the $259 Beats Solo2, I have to say I’m slightly shocked to be coming out in favour of these headphones. I fully expected the Solo2 to have significantly worse sound and worse build quality than it did. The...

Beats Solo² Headphones Sound Great, But You're Paying for Fashion [REVIEW]

 

Beats' follow-up to the Solo headphones, the Solo², have a better design and offer better sound. But at $200, you're paying a premium for brand.

Great design ; Audio quality is improved from the old models ; Sound great for EDM and HipHop

Fit is a little tight ; Has some problems with treble ; Better sounding headphones are available for $200

Beats Solo² are a big upgrade from the last generation, but the biggest appeal is still fashion.
