Business Insider

They sound great, pair and charge quickly and easily, and have intuitive controls

from Business Insider

If you're dead-set on spending no more than $200 on a pair of headphones, the Beats Solo3 wireless headphones are an excellent pick. Comfort could be better, and the plasticky look may not be your cup of tea, but you can't deny the sound quality, which is the most important factor to consider.

Speedy pairing, stellar battery life

Looking at sound quality on its own may leave you questioning the £250 price tag, but Beats has never been about sound alone. The argument used to be that you’re paying for fashion, but with the Solo 3 you’re paying for a lot more than that. You’re also getting great battery life and the e...More

Looking at sound quality on its own may leave you questioning the £250 price tag, but Beats has never been about sound alone. The argument used to be that you’re paying for fashion, but with the Solo 3 you’re paying for a lot more than that. You’re also getting great battery life and the exclusivity and ease-of-use of Apple’s new wireless audio technology.

Amazing headphones

from Macworld

We're impressed with the features on offer here, particularly the best battery life we've ever seen on a pair of wireless headphones.

We're impressed with the features on offer here, particularly the best battery life we've ever seen on a pair of wireless headphones. Sound quality is good, but more than most headphones you need to be a fan of bass dominant music for the Solo 3 Wireless to suit you. If you're likely to listen to other genres far more, then we'd recommend looking elsewhere.

What Hi-Fi

These headphones push the boundaries of wireless headphone technology, but not sound quality

The Beats Solo 3 Wireless headphone are a tale of two halves. On the one hand, they’re pushing the boundaries of wireless headphones technology further than we’ve seen before. On the other, their sound is crucially lacking in the detail and subtlety we expect from headphones at this price.

Great sound quality, long-lasting battery

Good Housekeeping

Excellent sound quality and plenty of listening time are the biggest draws of these wireless headphones. They're definitely at the more expensive end of the headphone market but the sound quality makes that justifiable.

Intuitive and unfussy design

The Solo3s are built with the largest number of people in mind, and they seamlessly transition from commuter to athletic to workplace headphone. Their compact and sleek design — paired with a more-than-reasonable reduced price tag — makes these the middle-tier headphone to beat.

RTINGS

Decent mixed usage headphones, with a surprisingly balanced sound

from RTINGS

The Beats Solo3 are versatile headphones that struggle a bit in loud environments but deliver a good sound and an excellent battery life. The slight improvements over the previous model may warrant an upgrade if you want the better set of active features and especially if you have an iOS device.

Decent performance that doesn’t quite match the expectations set by the list price

from TechGearLab

The Beats Solo3 are fairly good headphones that still fail to live up to their list price. If you're considering spending $300 on wireless headphones, there are much better options available.

Fashion-focussed cans gets smart

Smart wireless headphones that make some real techy improvements, but the sound unfortunately lags behind.

Superb battery life, compact design

from GottaBeMobile

Love how great these headphones work with Apple devices and that they live up to the 40 hr battery promise, but the $299 sticker price is just too high. They are a decent value when discounted
