Beats Top Selling Headphone Gets a Facelift, the Solo2 Review

Chip Chick
5 March 2015
  • Summary: Will the Solo2 continue the reign of the original Solo? I think they will. These are solid headphones that even picky cynics will agree have grown-up. The available color choices are fun too and so is the new redesigned look.
  • Pros: Redesigned for the better. Sound has improved vastly over the original Solo. Ear cups are comfortable and provide a tight seal. Bass is now much more subtle than before. Good soundstage. Remastered tracks sound especially good.
  • Cons: The included soft carrying case provides a tight fit for the headphones. The headband may be too tight for some, but could also lessen overtime. Might be too plasticky for some. The In-line remote can be a little temperamental when moving from song to song.

Beats by Dr. Dre Solo2 Headphones

Sound & Vision Magazine

  • Excerpt: The Solo2 headphone has a collapsible folding design and it fits nicely into its compact soft carrying case. I would prefer a hard-shell case to protect this somewhat pricey (MSRP $200) headphone. That being said, the hard plastic band and cups feel almost indestructible.

  • Summary: For quite some time now, Beats has been one of the most highly visible brands in the world of consumer audio, and considering the company has recently been acquired by Apple, it isn’t likely that will slow down any time soon.

CNET
13 June 2014
  • Summary: 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.

Review: Beats Solo 2 headphones

Gadget Guy
7 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Headphones sure don’t look like what they used to. Rather than stick with the tried and true logic of providing people black boxes for their ears, headphones are now a fashion item, and one of the companies that started this trend is updating, with the sequel to the Solo cans.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Thick and durable cable, Foldable, Excellent sound
  • Cons: Only one cable in the pack
