  • Summary: Great set of cans for going out and about in town though for the heavy price you would expect far better build quality, the headphones themselves are made almost entirely form plastic and do feel somewhat on the fragile side, however, the cable is of a very high quality and is difficult to tangle as...

  • Summary: So every audiophile known to man, or at least that I have listened to, has bashed the Beats, Soul, Streets ect.. line for being an awful, bass prominent headphone. I agreed for the longest time until I actually got a pair of Beats.

  • Conclusion: The vast majority of people buying Beats headphones are doing it for the style or fashion rather than audio prowess. But for iPhone users who don’t actually know what bitrate their music is stored at, the Solo HD headphones conveniently sound great too.
  • Pros: Stunning, hip design
  • Cons: Higher-quality MP3s miss the detail in the higher end
