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. The removable cable has an in-line remote that’s compatible with iOS (whew!) hardware.
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.
Pros: The Beats Solo 2 on-ear headphones are sturdier and better-sounding than the original Solos, with somewhat more balanced sound and strong, tight bass. They offer a relatively comfortable fit and have an inline remote and microphone for making cell phone calls. The headphones fold up to fit in a nice carrying case (included).
Cons: Fairly pricey; some people may find they fit too snug.
