Beats Solo

 

After listening to the Skullcandy Aviator's, we weren't expecting that any fashion headphone could have a greater low-end bias, but the Monster Beats Solos manage it.

Quality sound ; Stylish design

Very heavy bass ; High price

One particularly well thought out aspect is the removablecable or, rather, cables. The 'standard' cable is chunky but still reasonablyflexible, and has a particularly durable-looking connector at each end, whilethe second also has an in-line remote and...

Beats by Dre Solo review

 

Can the hip-hop god and Monster deliver godlike sound?

Excellent build quality ; They look great ; ControlTalk works perfectly

Sound quality lacking ; No over-ear seal ; Expensive

They look great. They're sturdy. And they've got Dr. Dre's name written all over them. For many people, that's enough. But if you truly care about sound quality, you should probably look elsewhere.

Beats by Dr. Dre Solo with ControlTalk Headphones review

 

Once Monster dipped its toes into the headphone market, there was no stopping the cable manufacturer from releasing a bevy of earphones on the unsuspecting masses. From in-ear to on-ear to over-the-ear, you shouldn't have trouble finding a pair of...

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.

Beats Solo Headphones

 

The Beats Solo over-ear headphones render a coherent, high-grade impression. A high degree of wearing comfort enhances the musical experience, delivering the audio realism of higher-priced models in a lightweight and compact version.

Beats by Dre Solo HD On Ear Headphones Review

 

The Solo HD has some clever design touches behind the slick product marketing.

Very well adapted for use on the move ; Good build quality ; Apple inline remote is useful on suitable devices

Sonic balance is a somewhat bass heavy ; Can be a little uncomfortable after a while ; Relatively expensive

Quick Review: Beats by Dr. Dre Solo headphones

 

Beats by Dr. Dre's more affordable headphone offering is the $199 Solo. These are smaller than the Studio headphones and, like the more expensive model, they are foldable, making for easier portability. Considering the size and price of the...

Review: Beats by Dr. Dre Solo Headphones

 

The first thing I noticed was the impressive presentation the folks at Monster Cable put together with these.  The headphones are packed in a box secured with a magnet snap on the flap.  I was already happy to know that I would not have to tear through...

The Beats Solo are available from Monster Cable for $199.95.

Ego-Boost Gadget: Beats By Dr. Dre Solo

 

Sure, these headphones look great, but are they worth the price?

What do you think of celebrity-marketed products? What doesn’t Dr. Dre do? The man’s a rapper, a producer, an actor, a director, and an entrepreneur. He’s planning to release his own brand of booze to coincide with his next CD release, he got HP to put...
