Beats by Dr. Dre Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones – – Fabulous for music, phone calls, bluetooth rangejust a bit tight.

Excellent, if expensive, pair of headphones. Quality sound and volume, and the battery life is exceptional. Additionally certain part can be replaced when worn, which increases the versatility and longevity of the product and counter balances/offsets the initial purchase price.

Decent sound & great battery life. I have removed a star because 4 months after purchase the battery began to drain persistently even when the headphones were turned off. This meant i had to recharge the headphones every couple of days even though they had only been in use for a few hours. Great service from amazon who sent out a replacement pair which are working as intended.

I have written a comparison of 4 bluetooth headphones. This one is being published under the beats product page. Despite being a great all-rounder i think that they could be more comfortable to wear. The clamp does get to you after a while======so, i thought i had my headphones sorted. Since my new iphone dropped the audio socket i have been wireless. I’ve tried a few, but had settled on the plantronics backbeat fit for running, the beats solo 3 for everyday use, and the bose qc35 for when i wanted peace & quiet. (plus a pair of soundmagic e10s for the nintendo switch). I alternate between the qc35 & the beats for my london commute – but tend to favour the smaller sized beats. So – it was sorted until i got hold of a pair of sony wh-1000xm2 on the amazon vine program (lucky me). Here are the specifications for the Beats by Dr. Dre Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones –:

  • Connect via class 1 Bluetooth with your device for wireless workout freedom
  • With up to 40 hours of battery life for multi-day use. With Fast Fuel, 5 minutes of charging gives you 3 hours of playback when battery is low. Rechargeable Lithium-Ion
  • Sleek, streamlined design that’s durable and foldable to go everywhere you do
  • Take calls, control your music and activate Siri with the multifunction on-ear controls
  • To reset headphones, hold down these two buttons for 10 seconds: Power button, Volume down (-) button. When the Fuel Gauge flashes, release the buttons
  • Height:7.8 in/19.8cm, Weight:7.58oz/215g

I know these headphones are pretty expensive but for me this has been one of the best purchases i have made. They are brilliant, the sound quality is out of this world and the noise cancellation is absolutely excellent. They feel premium and so comfortable on the ears.

Bought this as a gift for my wife. Very quick pairing with iphone 6s, and the built doesnt look cheap even if its made of plastic so a must for someone looking for fashion headsets. And the battery life is soooo long. I cant even remember the last time we charged it.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Fabulous for music, phone calls, bluetooth rangejust a bit tight.
  • Simply incredible quality.
  • Good quality sound and very comfortable

Thought they’d run down very quickly, but the charge lasted over five days. My lad seems to be glued to them, so was very impressed. He’s also glued to his ipad, so instead of him wandering into the kitchen for a snack whilst clutching his ipad, he can still listen to music or a video and have both hands free. ;o)overall they’re really great headphones, and my son is delighted with them, and so am i. I got a good xmas deal on these, so was happy to pay that price, but i think i’d struggle to justify £250 on earphones – no matter how good the sound quality, or how trendy they are. The sound quality is excellent by the way. The only concern i can see is with the hinged design. I wonder whether transportation in school bags and constant use will take their toll, though they seem sturdy enough. That said, apple’s support on these is exemplary.

Amazing quality in terms of build and sound. Really have exceeded anything i’ve purchased before – previously used bose headphones but these are a different level. Battery life is as advertised and pairing with an iphone or other apple product is 2 steps. Best price i found for these was on amazon by a distance, and only added to the overall quality and value.

Love these, purchased 4 for the girls. Only down side does hurt a little when wearing glasses. Use them for conference calls and work.

Love these, so easy to connect and the sound is great. Battery life is good and an option to connect a wire to c9nserve battery life if needed.

My boy loves these so much that he never takes them off. The battery lasts for ever and the fold up real neat. Arrived quickly, items is well built and as described.

Good quality sound and very comfortable, good strong bluetooth being able to walk from room to room without carrying your phone or tablet, very happy.

Matte gold colour is really nice compare to other colourssound is great and easy to useperfect for the gym.

So far, i’m enjoying the sound of the solo3’s, having most tested with post-rock, metal and hip hop. Pairs super easy with the iphone, and i would recommend playing with the internal eq of the phone if you’re tying them together. However, once tweaked, the sound is big and cosy. I have jaybirds for running, which are fabulous, but these do feel more all-encompassing. I wouldn’t say i’m an audiophile, but i can’t stand wearing tinny headphones with poor range in them. If it handles my three genres fine, then i’m more than happy.

Easy to connect, battery lasts forever, are super comfortable to wear for extended periods of time, and the audio is more than good enough to my elf ears. Fold up into a cute protective case to cart around with me.

I’ve wanted a pair of beats for ages but was sceptical of purchasing them due to the price but they work well and the colour is vivid. They come with a case which is cool. They hurt ears after time but that’s to be expected. I like the fact they are wireless and connect so simply.

Awesome sound, great quality, 40 hours of battery is perfect. You don’t have to be recharging every 4 hours. I’ve got one negative thing to say: makes my ears sweat a lot while exercising, and i need to keep cleaning ‘em. Sometimes it moves out of my gear a little.

So impressed by my sons set, that i bought these. Very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Expensive but well worth the investment.

I had a pair of beats when they first came out and 6 years later they are still going strong, just a bit tatty now. Bought these as i wanted wireless for work. Absolutely love them, never had a problem. Brilliant only thing is i find that they do stratch quite easily. My friend who bikes to work found out they turn off if it is below 0 degrees as a safety feature so good to know.

I really like these, epic sound quality and easily beats the airpods that i bought these to replace, i bought it in a sale where it was £100 off the price, and they work seamlessly with my iphone 7plus, however, to people around me when i am listening to songs, they can hear too, even at half volume, which makes it hard to be subtle in quiet places and means people can hear me when im listening to nikki minaj :/.

I bought the beats used and in ‘like new’ condition for £170 and they work perfectly, look brand new, and have no scratches or anything like that. It came on time and just the packaging had a scuff or two but really can’t complain. Such a good price, when in comparison to beats website selling at £249. It came with the full original packaging and they honestly are just such good quality, feels so smooth and looks so chic. So happy i ignored the fact that there wasn’t many reviews, and didn’t buy the more expensive ‘unused’ version that amazon are selling on this page. Definitely 100% recommendalso, fyi, the instructions seem a little outdated. For iphone users is says to hold the power button for 1 second to turn on bluetooth. I have an iphone 8 and had to hold down for 5 seconds.

As the headline says, it’s ok. Bluetooth works well with iphone and quick to recharge. Could last upto 2 weeks with single charge, but there are much better headphones out there. My wife wanted design and looks over sound, so couldn’t convince her to get better headphones. Bose qc35 and b&w p7 or sony xm3 (it just came out) would be one of my choices.

    This review is from : Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones – Gold

    Couldn’t connect them properly to my iphone, ipad & macbook, took them to an apple store and they confirmed that they were fake. Box and headphones were very convincing to pass as real ones. Still got a full refund for them since i was within the 30 day return period but be careful.

    On purchase these headphones were simply but attractively styled, comfortable to wear, with great battery life. Bluetooth volume was low, lacking any real power. However, after seventeen months’ use the right hand speaker ceased working with bluetooth. On investigation this was found to be a regular problem with the product. Despite this, apple disclaimed responsibility. Fortunately, amazon accepted responsibility as the retailer and i got a satisfactory resolution. At almost the same time, my wife purchased beats studio over-ear headphones. These failed terminally within 6 months. They were replaced by apple only after an unpleasant initial response, followed by a bout of what should have been unnecessary persuasion from my wife.

      • 3.0 out of 5 stars Nice product overall says:
        Nice product overall, quite expensive though and they do hurt your ears if you wear them for several hours pressing your ears on to your head. Also the folding thing often snaps folded if you hold them at an angle and they’re still new so expect this to get worse. Sound quality is pretty decent though.

      The noise leakage on these is awful. Even just watching a movie people can hear every word, i dread to think what it would be like for music. I really expect better quality for £149. Returning for a refund and will purchase some sonys instead.

      • 1.0 out of 5 stars Right ear stopped working says:
        Sound only comes out one side – this happened suddenly and within 6 months of purchase. I don’t mind that beats aren’t as good sound quality or whatever as other headphones, overpriced etc etc. They are extremely comfortable, the sound is decent enough but after 4 months one ear just suddenly broke. 1 star because they broke so easily.

    • 1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful battery life. says:
      I have two pairs of these – this being the 2nd pair (in black) to accompany my (grey) beats which are used for the gym. I bought these for casual use but the battery life is absolutely useless – i listen to them once straight after charging and fine but leave the phones turned off for 24 hours and when i next try to turn them on, the battery is dead. My old pair continues to have a fantastic battery life.

      Bought these for my boyfriend on theamazon prime day as he’d wanted a pair for a while now. He uses them every day on his commute to work and wears them to the gym. These are good for the gym as they are wireless. They are stylish and we got them at a good price. Considering getting myself a pair.

    Fantastic but issues with one of the ear pads. I would have given 5 stars but this is most annoying and now coming away on other ear.

      • 5.0 out of 5 stars These sound amazing . I highly recommend . says:
        Really impressed with these. They sound amazing and are really loud should you need that. They also last forever on 1 charge. How long they’ll last remains to be seen as i’ve read some reviews which comment on their lack of reliability but so far i’ve absolutely no complaints.

    They were painful to wear, and i had my doubts about the sound quality. I went to apple to see if they were genuine beats and they said they were very good fakes.
