Beats Solo HD On-Ear Headphone

Built-in controls for iPod®, iPhone®, and iPad®

A remote control and microphone built into the headphone cable let you conveniently answer and end calls, control the volume of your calls or music, and pause, play, or skip through your songs with your iPhone, iPod or iPad. The high-quality mic and sound-isolating design of the headphones work together to let you hear and be heard clearly.

The Solo HD sports a compact, lightweight folding design that makes them easy to take along anywhere. Both flexible and durable, these headphones offer a comfortable fit while standing up to the rigors of travel. Beats even includes a carrying case for safe storage when you tuck them into a bag, suitcase, or jacket.

AMAZING!! Sounds like you are in the recording studio. When placed on head in off position you can hardly hear a sound around you . They are incredibly comfortable and look GREAT!! My daughter has not taken them off since Christmas morning. I want a pair for myself. BEAUTIFUL!

I was skeptical of these for a long time.I thought that they were just overhyped because of the DrDre name on them. I tried a friends on and immediately had to have a pair. the solo HD isn't the top of the line beats I know but they are still amazing. If your using them with say an iPhone or iPod or Android tablet or something like that make sure you get an equalizer app to really appreciate just how good they sound. The factory eq presets on devices just don't do them justice.

Pros: Great sound, great quality, awesome product.

Cons: Ears kinda sore after wearing for hours on end (6.5 hrs on an airplane) but what in ear or over ear headphones aren't.

The first pair of Beats Solo headphones that I received was defective, specifically the sound was muffled. I immediately contacted Crutchfield customer service and was given hassle free return instructions. Upon receipt of my returned package, Crutchfield immediately shipped a second pair of Beats Solo headphones. I am 100% satisfied with the sound quality of the replacement product as well as the prompt response on behalf of Crutchfield to resolve my issue. The entire transaction took 7 days.

Features

Tri-Fold Design: The Beats Solo HDs are compact, lightweight and ready for your active lifestyle, gym work out, or frequent travel. The tri-fold design allows them to fit into the included compact carrying case.
