  • 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.

  • Summary: OVERALL: I would say this is a fairly decent headphone but not for its price. Gets a C rating. If you don't care for isolation the Creative Aurvana Live offers better sound for 1/3 of the current price. DESIGN: I was fairly impressed with the design of the Solo2.
  • Pros: Design, Comfort
  • Cons: Inline controls dont work for android phones, Isolation is mediocre, Sound needs better clarity

Beats by Dr. Dre Solo2 Headphones

Sound & Vision Magazine
23 June 2014
  • Excerpt: On the heels of Apple’s buyout of Beats, it’s unfair to expect Beats to suddenly stop production of anything that isn’t Apple white. The newly designed Beats by Dr. Dre Solo2 headphone actually comes in a rainbow of colors, including, umm, white. This is a revision of the original Solo headphone.

Beats Top Selling Headphone Gets a Facelift, the Solo2 Review

Chip Chick
8 June 2014
  • 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.
