Beats by Dre Solo HD – Believe the Hype or Nah ? [Review]

 

I have nothing against Dr. Dre, I've always been a huge fan I'm just not big on being an early adopter of “mass appeal” gadgets. Being a techie person when the masses say something is good I tend to run in the opposite direction. Suffice to say I...

Beats by Dr. Dre Solo HD (Product) Red Special Edition Headphones Review

 

We have been eager to get our hands on a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre Solo HD headphones for sometime now. We had passed on testing the ...

Great sound reproduction. Rich and balanced bass/treble/midrange. You can easily hear the difference between highs and lows. Inclusion of the ControlTalk cable extends the functionality for iPhone & iPod users. Design aesthetic is top notch. Bass...

Tri-fold design is still a bit flimsy. After many hours of wearing they can start to become uncomfortable. The high price may still be a hindrance to some

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.

You don't get any more "street wear" than these Beats Audio cans, but great build and design don't mask a disappointing sound.

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.

Dre Dre Beats Solo HD review

 

So O2 are going to be stocking the Beats Solo HD headphones very soon (along with rest of their range) and, as I have been using these headphones for the past 4 months now I thought I would share some opinions of the headphones themselves. The...

This is a great product range and one that is highly regarded in the music industry and celebrity land. I am very pleased that O2 have the exclusivity on this range of headphones as it is great to see networks feature some decent kit for a change.

Terribly disappointed

 

None

The headphones shipped to me are extremely discolored, the hinges are damaged, and the sound quality is very poor. We already own another set of Beats Solo HD on-ear purchased from Best Buy and the headphones shipped to us do not even sound the same
