Summary: Came as promised and on time, everything was good going through Amazon and saved my $80 on buying them in store in Australia. As for the product, Sound is ok, but it's vital to mess around with your EQ setting on your phone/ mp3 player to find something that works for your genre of choice.
Not what they are cracked up to be- Buy another brand

Summary: Inperfect sound. Instrumentals sound fine but vocals sound distant. This causes listen strain. The headphones are not over the ear but on the ear. False advertising. The head band felt like it would break over time.
Summary: I generally only spend $20-40 on headphones for this exact reason...I expect to be disappointed & cant condone spending huge amounts of money on anything, let alone anything I'm likely to blow! I dont listen to headphones often as I'm accustomed to bada** car stereos & obviously, no headphones can come close.
It's ON-ear, NOT OVER-ear. Please change product name!

Summary: I totally agree with Karen Hall. This product is an update of the previous Beats Solo Headset. But it is ON-EAR instead of the claimed OVER-EAR. I was pretty excited when I found this on using keyword "Over Ear" to search. But I was very disappointed when I unpacked it. So I immediately returned it and called Amazon representatives asking them to modify the misleading product name. Since I did not even use the product, I would just give it a 3-star.
Summary: So maybe it was my fault for not taking the time to over-research whether or not the Solos come in Over-Ear versus On-Ear, but I bought these as a last minute gift for someone who specifically wanted over-ear. I thought these were a good buy, since the blue ones seem to be more expensive than other colors. But I was disappointed when they arrived and they were not what I (or the birthday boy) was anticipating.
Summary: I buy stuff especially because of form factor, quality and especially, DESIGN. So I was soo close buying these headphones, when I actually tried them in my local electronics store. I was SHOCKED ! My 20 bucks Senheiser In-ear headphones sound twice as good and the quality of the headphones was just horrendous. So, I don't own them, but this is my first (and only) review that I write here, and I really recommend trying them before you buy them.
Summary: The only reason that I am giving 3 stars is because I didn't have to spend money on them. I used reward points to buy them. I have the "Solo Beats", and is somewhat disappointed. They sound just "ok". The headphones that came with my parents minivan sound better than "beats". They are definetly over priced by 150.00 bucks. They do have a cool and stylish look but that's about it. Bose is a way more headset than beats. They should call these heatsets"BEAT BY DRE".
