The sound quality is great on these headphones but i found the noise cancelling to be very poor. Minimal noise was cancelled, i could usually still hear people talking while listening to music. And after wearing them for about 30-45 minutes they will start to hurt and be uncomfortable. If i’m honest, there are better headphones out there for the same price as these.
Genuine product, syncs really easy, delivered on time.
I was a bit sceptical about buying these at first as i worried they wouldn’t be genuine or i would have wasted my money on something that breaks within weeks. I bought these in september and they are still (touch wood) in perfect condition usage wise and i use them every single day. They have a few tiny scratches from wear and tear being in my bag all day etc but the sound that comes from them is so good.
Probably the best but you can get adequate alternative for half the price.
Headphones are top top quality -bought them as a birthday present & they went down a treat. Fantastic price, awesome deal. Just one thing, you didn’t send me the adapter cable to charge them up. Please can you send one my way?. As you will see on the attached image, the labels were correct, just not the actual cables. Many many thanks as everything else has been perfect.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Surprisingly good!
- Very impressed
- Comfortable but very limited noise cancelling
First of all beats should come in black box, not white. Second of all, in extras should be 2 aux cables and 1 charging, but there’s only one aux, charging and carabine. There is annoying noise when listening thru bluetooth, i don’t think it should be like that. And one ear cushion was a bit bended, but over all sound quality for 150£ is really good, bass is pretty hard but soft and smooth, so these 2 things kinda compensates cons.
Totally muffles out surrounding sound. I go to gym and don’t like listening to the music there so i put these on and simply by having over my ears alone the music is muffles out. Then once i play my quranic lyrics i’m in heaven 😍.
Comfortable headphones and but noise cancelling limited to quieter environments. If you attempt to take them outside, near any public space or where there is heightened background noise, the noise cancelling does little to help and can actually become distracting. It’s a shame as these are very well built and comfortable. I had bought these as a second pair to take to the gym and for walks outdoors but sadly they came up well short when compared to my bose qc35. If you are looking to listen with these indoors in quieter environments they will be fine, but if you want to do more with them i would suggest looking at other models out there.
My last pair of a beats solo hd wireless were a present for my 15th, 4 years ago. The plastic was so worn it snapped a few days ago. Worth mentioning both cups still work and it still works wirelessly, just looks a bit ghetto with all my repairs. Had to upgrade and chose beats again based on my experience. Hope these last like my old pair, but they look and sound great.
Good audio and quality but i expected more for the price. A headphone purchase at this price, you would expect to be wowed.
Great sound but missed out on 5 stars as there is a ‘hissing’ noise when the head phone are on but not playing i.
Bought for my 15 year old daughter, so this review is mainly based upon her thoughts. I should say up front that i had pretty low expectations for these headphones, thinking that they’re more a fashion brand, rather than a half decent bit of tech, but you know what kids are like when it comes to the ‘cool’ brands. Happy to admit that i was wrong. Whilst they won’t compete against a decent pair of audiophile headphones, that’s not their purpose. They offer surprisingly well balanced sound, and the noise cancellation is excellent (not as good as my newly purchased bose qc35’s, but bose pretty much own the noise cancelling market). They seem very well put together, and the packaging is superb (due mainly, i suspect, to the take-over of beats by apple). The supplied hard case is a welcome addition, and several good quality leads and plugs are included within the box. First thing we did is charge them up, via my mac, registered them, and updated the firmware via the beats website. They charged quickly – from the supplied 30% to 100% in about 30 minutes, via the standard micro-usb socket in the ear piece. They paired effortlessly with her iphone 6 & ipad, and have a useful ‘fuel gauge’ set of lights on the ear to designate power charge.
Of course you can have better but for the price we paid, for me it is more than enough. The “studio” are the best because they actually cancel the noise.
Couldn’t wear these for long before they hurt my ears. Tried b&o and they are a lot more comfortable with no pain after long use. These do have great sound and look fantastic, just not right for me.
These earphones are great, for about the first 30-60 mins of use. After this time they begin to really hurt my ears, and they feel quite heavy on the head. I’m sure there are better options out there until apple release their own.
Only had it for a few days so resilience is something i can’t comment on although having owned beats headphones on few occasions previously, they almost always end up breaking in some way but to be fair, i have an extensive user, i use headphones literally every single day including to work out but i digress, so far, these headphones are excellent, the quality of sound is fantastic as usual, they look sleek and sexy and they are very comfortable on the ear even after hours of constant use.
Brilliant buy, quick delivery, very satisfied. Bought for a gift as i already have one. This later model than mine is great.
These headphones in true beats style are excellent. Battery power is amazing and i have never actually have them run out on me. They work on flights even if i am not listening to music, the noise cancelling is excellent.
Not loud enough with iphone.
I wasn’t too impressed with this product, especially considering all of the hype about it. In terms of sound quality, you’re just as well off with the standard earphones you get with your iphone (plus a bit of base). It muffles the noise in your surroundings a bit, but don’t expect miracles.
