Style, performance, and comfort
Experience all your music the way the artist intended with Soul by Ludacris SL300 headphones. These cool-looking, hard-hitting 'phones deliver crisp, detailed sound and the deep, powerful bass of modern hip-hop thanks to advanced driver and circuitry design. Built-in active noise-canceling technology reduces outside noise so you can focus better on your music. And the SL300's softly padded, full-size earcups swivel to give you the best and most comfortable fit every time.

Switch between your calls and music with ease
The SL300's in-line three-button remote lets you conveniently answer and end calls, control the volume of your calls or music, and pause, play, or skip through your songs. You can even take calls on your iPhone hands-free, thanks to an in-line microphone that lets you hear and be heard clearly.

Take 'em along wherever you roam
The headphones' folding design and light weight make them easy to take along. The included protective carrying case provides safe storage when you tuck them into a bag, suitcase, or jacket. Plus, the SL300s come with two removable cords — one with the in-line remote/microphone, and a standard headphone cable. Each flat, tangle-resistant cable offers gold-plated contacts at both ends for maximum signal transfer and corrosion resistance.

Look cool , Sound acceptable

I have tried the Souls 150 and I just fell in love with them. I like the Beats by Dre Studios, and I like the Soul 300. The Soul 300s are a pair of good headphones, and they look fantastic. They are beautiful and comfortable. But for me a pair of headphones is about sound, and the 300s are not that good. The Souls 150s have a much better sound. The megaphone effect on the 300s and the excessive treble are just annoying.

Pros: Great looking Comfortable Loud

Cons: Poor sound quality

Better than Beats

I really like these headphones. They sound great and work well with all music types. I like them better than the Beats by Dre

Pros: Sound, Style

Cons: Noise Cancelation is ok
