Such a disappointment

Good sound and sound deadening.
Cuts out well below quoted range, connection interference and plays that connection ringtone stupidly loud and takes ages to reconnect with paired device upon resetting disappointing Show details

Awesome Sound

I use the Beats when listening to music, movies and sometime when I am video chatting. The fit perfectly and are comfortable to wear for extended periods. The battery like is outstanding and charges quickly. I use Apple products and pairing is simple and sometimes they will pair automatically when I switch between iMac, iPad or iPhone. I have had them for about 3 years and the padding has started to separate on one of the ears. I would recommend them. Show details

Great quality sound, awesome noise cancellation, some bugs when connected to tv

Bought these for working from home during Covid as a speech pathologist needing good quality headphones for teletherapy. I loved the noise cancelling capabilities, I couldn’t hear anything else during my sessions and that was great. The quality of sound was great, could hear voices clear as day, enough clarity for articulation therapy! After lockdown I decided to use them for home, and connected to my tv. When an advert comes on (such as on YouTube) they seem to disconnect… haven’t found a solution for this bug yet. Aside from that, great for listening to music or podcasts, agile and light enough for the gym, and can’t wait to use on an aeroplane to really test out the noise canceling. Show details

Do Not Buy

I bought this beats headphone from Costco. I removed it from my head after listening to music. The structure cracked. Now costco does not want to refund me saying it is my fault. This is so disappointing of a product. Just like that, without any pressure it breaks. Also, apple does not cover structural damage. Best thing is to avoid this product.

Just don’t

Google this problem. It is so common. After about a year or so one of the speakers goes. So many people are having this problem and it’s just not good enough for $300aud earphones. They also do not cancel noise in the slightest. I specifically bought as I am in a busy/noisy office. They didn’t do anything. Just don’t.  Show details

Great sound quality headphones

I use my solo 3 for when I’m working and sometimes before bed and they’re very comfortable to use if you’re watching a movie on your laptop and the sound quality is second to none.

Don’t waste your money

Don’t buy these over priced rubbish plastic headphones, just after one year the battery fails to hold any charge.
Changed the battery out twice now only to find out that these headphones drain the battery flat when switched off.
Save your money and buy another brand. Show details

Faultless. Super long life

I have had these for 3 years. Faultless. Beautiful sound and quick to charge, the few times I have had to do so. A little tight on the head but they have relaxed. The white leather ear covers on mine look like new. Show details

Unexpected crap aspects

The headphones don’t have a fast forward/rewind button only pause/play and volume up and down.
As a female with long curly hair, hair gets caught in the gaps every time I take them off.
Also the headphones hurt one particular part of each ear. They fit without adjustment but are simply built too tight, I get headaches after wearing them too long. Show details

great sound and well built

I listen to music with these headphones and the sound quality and build quality is phenomenal! they are a great set if you want to go jogging or use then in the gym because they fit snuggly and don't shift when in place. I'm very satisfied with the quality. Show details

Comfortable and Good Sound Quality

I normally use my phone just for music at home. I think it has a very good sound volume and quality. I can easily adjust the volume with the control on the headphone too. It has great wireless range too because I can still hear my music when I go to my balcony. I don't think it is suitable for physical activities like running though. Show details

Nice Quality!

This beats solo 3 is comfortable to wear. I listen to music with it and I am absolutely loving it. But this is not suitable for sports though. The sound quality is decent. But note that this does not come with the noise cancellation feature. So I can still hear sounds surrounding me when I use this headphone. Show details

Questions & Answers

Jason H

Does it seem like complete rubbish, or even hatchet jobs that all but one review from every review with 1 - 3 stars are not verified purchases? Also, the one review that is a verified purchase explains that his purchase was a gift?
I know, right??
Next, a lot of there faults people are finding in these are that they're falling off the heads of owners while they're working out, when in fact they're simply not the sharpest tools in the shed in the first place by not buying the much more activity styled earbud type??

I'm thinking of purchasing a set, and I can't help but wonder why all of the lower scores recorded seem especially nonsensical and by non-verified purchases

I have the beats set and the right hand side has some sort of a wire problem. It cuts in and out like the wire isn't connected correctly.

Is it worth buying and how long do they headphones last before breaking?

It’s worth it, haven’t broken them and I’ve trained in them for a while
