Beats Solo HD (Black)

 

The Beats Solo by Dr. Dre Headphones from Monster offer a stylish, compact, and durable design that lends itself well to on-the-go use. The cable is ultranice and features an integrated mic, iPod controls, and volume rocker. Bass is thumping, and the...

The Beats Solo headphones may not be comfortable for everyone, audio is muddy overall, and they leak a fair amount of sound.

The Beats Solo by Dr. Dre Headphones from Monster offer a killer, travel-friendly design that's sure to turn heads, but the audio quality fails to live up to the price tag.

Review: Monster's Beats Solo HD Keeps the Music Pumpin'

 

I had the pleasure of reviewing the Monster Beats by Dre headphones back in 2008 and was excited when Monster recently sent me a pair of Beats Solo HD ($230) over-ear headphones to check out. Truth be told, I'm already a Monster fan (with a pair of

Monster Beats Solo HD

 

A million Beats by Dr. Dre wearers can't be wrong, right?

Comfortable ; Good design ; Dual cables

Muddy sound

Aside from the headphones and the pair of cables, the box also includes a neat neoprene carry case and a cleaning cloth (a red one, naturally). The case isn't there to provide absolute protection, but as the headphones fold up across a strong metal...

Beats Solo HD headphones

 

The Beats by Dr Dre Solo HD headphones offer plenty of bass, convenient control and great styling, but are offset by too tight a grip on the head and a strange lack of higher tones.

Beautiful design ; Useful iPod etc inline control ; Capable of high output level

Sound biased towards bass ; Tiring to wear due to pressure on ears

Which is a pity, because their build and practical nature was otherwise so very, very good.

Beats by Dr Dre Solo HD

 

Even if you don't much care for Dr Dre's music, there's no denying the man has style, especially when it comes to headphones. Everything about the Solo HD Beats is stunningly crafted, from the packaging to the colour combination on the headphones...

Stunning, hip design

Higher-quality MP3s miss the detail in the higher end

The vast majority of people buying Beats headphones are doing it for the style or fashion rather than audio prowess. But for iPhone users who don’t actually know what bitrate their music is stored at, the Solo HD headphones conveniently sound great too.

"After the warenty expired so did the good sound."

 

Disapointed. had too many other options for this much money.

"Disappointing. These are going back to the store."

 

The bass overwhelms everything else. I don't understand the commenters who say say the sound is clear. Maybe for a certain type of music it sounds good. Not for anything I listen to.

Comfortable, detachable cord, folds.

Overwhelming, muddled bass

"Quality Headphones, Better Choice than the Beats Studio"

 

Last year, I tried out a pair of Beats Studio noise-cancelling headphones at an Apple Store and, upon listening to the music selection, decided that it was the best sounding headphones I had ever listened to. I was impressed enough that I was tempted...

+ Excellent sound, quality construction and sleek design

- These headphones are not noise-cancelling

"Not living up to its price range"

 

Go buy bose for better price, sound, and comfort. Beats is just for bass lovers

The design is really cool and the new headband is really durable. The bass is really loud and fit really with hip hop music

Sound quality is pretty imbalanced. the bass almost cover all other range, even with eq setting, problems cannot be solved. To me the sound quality is not as indicated as on the package. The design is pretty tight, you might feel uncomfortable and sweat a
