Beats by Dr. Dre Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones -, Great headphones!

Bought these for my sister and she had great feedback. Delivery was quick and arrived the next day ready for her 21st birthday surprise. Headphones are great quality, comfortable and the sound is great, very clear. Uses for the gym mainly and loves them.

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.

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.

Comments from buyers

“Fabulous for music, phone calls, bluetooth rangejust a bit tight., Simply incredible quality., Nice product overall”

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.

From start to finish, the delivery was quick from ordering them to being delivered. My daughter has got them today and is in love with them, in her words sicthe sound is excellent, she has wanted them for ages. They are an early christmas present.

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.

Daughter hasn’t taken these off since having them, great quality and i cant hear anything when she has them on.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Excellent battery life, i charge them regularly but they don’t seem to ever actually need charging. Light wearing and sound pretty much the same as most other expensive headphones.

I simply love them especially because i can only hear with one ear. For me, they are just rightbecause i bought them in this colour they are a bit picky. I forgot when i last charged themi couldn’t wait until christmas so i decided to buy them earlier.

Soundstage suits my listening preference. Controls need more time to get used to which is frustrating at times so not intuitive like other products i own.

Brilliant sound, syncs beautifully with mac air and iphones, great battery life.

Love everything about these beats. Colour exactly matched my gold iphone 8 and it’s more of a dusky pink/rose than gold. They are so comfortable to wear and the sound is excellent. Husband has the wireless bose ones and the sound of these beats is better in my opinion. Not noise reducing which is the only criticism but then they don’t claim to be – the bose ones are. I wear them every day to and from work and when i go for a run and i hardly have to charge them.

I can’t wear buds as i find them very painful. I’m pleased with these headphones, i can wear them for an hour without problems, even with glasses. They can get a bit painful after that, but i can only wear buds for 5 minutes without pain. For what i need the sound quality is good, they sync perfectly to my iphone and make calls when out and about simple.

    I use them for running and love them, they stay in place well sound great and the battery life is superb. White leather may have not been the best choice to wear for sports as gets dirty quickly.

    Christmas present for my son. These headphones only work in one ear when using bluetooth. Bought these in october, however the return window is only 30 days. This was not clear when the purchase was made.

      Music great, durability very poor, battery life awesome, over 8 to 10 hours. But bending and folding headphones and ear foam detaching easily.

      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.

    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.

        The headphones look really good and seem durable but the sound is where it lacks. Its a very low volume even with the music full volume also hardly any base. When outdoors, and i know there’s no anc, when on full volume it sounds like it’s on 50 % volume and so i give it 2 stars on sound.

    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 :/.
