Beats by Dr. Dre Solo3 Wireless overview

  • 1Description

Comprising a pair of Bluetooth wireless on-ear headphones styled in black, the Beats by Dr. Dre Beats Solo3 can provide up to 40 hours off a single charge. In a pinch, you can charge their on-board lithium-ion battery for five minutes to give you three hours of playing time. They feature a durable and folding construction with cushioned, adjustable earcups designed for all-day listening.

The presence of Apple's proprietary W1 chip makes the process of pairing as painless as placing the product in proximity to your phone and powering it on. They can simultaneously pair with your Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac, provided you have an iCloud account, the proper operating systems, and all of the aforementioned products.

The Solo3's finely-tuned acoustics ensure the clarity, breadth, and balance of your music, while their on-board microphone and remote functionality allow you to answer calls, play music, adjust volume, and talk to Siri from time to time. A degree of noise-isolation is provided. Should you wish to use these headphones in a traditional, wired manner, they ship with a 3.5mm RemoteTalk cable, one that features all the same inline controls and microphone capabilities. The Solo3 also come with an included charging cable and a carrying case.

Note: You must have macOS Sierra, iOS 10, or watchOS 3 for simultaneous pairing.

    Beats by Dr. Dre Solo3 Wireless reviews

    Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 60.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good headphones I bought these headphones before traveling on an airplane. I believe they are going to work well for that purpose given that they are wireless. They paired instantly with my iPhone7 and the controls on the earpiece are easy to use. I listen mostly to classical music and opera and the sound quality for this type of music is just fine. The bass is not overwhelming. The balance is very good - as is dynamic range. My only concerns are keeping the headphones clean - given the amount of white leather, and the soft case that came with them. I have ordered a harder case separately for better protection. Overall, I am very pleased with these headphones.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beats build quality is garbage Complete junk. I bought these for my wife. She takes extreme care of everything she owns. These did not last 1 year with light use. They just stopped working. I was able to get a new pair through Apple under the warranty. The second pair also did not last 1 year. Since the 2 pairs made it past the year combined Apple won’t do anything. I paid $350 for less than 2 years of use. Now they want $129 to send a refurbished pair with a 90 day warranty. No thanks. Save your money and buy some Sony’s or Bose (I bought Sony’s the same time as my wife and they are going strong with zero issues). Beats are complete and utter junk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will purchase my electronics from B&H from now on Super quick delivery. Free shipping, completely happy with this purchase. This is a Christmas gift for my daughter, I'm sure she will love it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sound quality and comfort are great, but beware of pinching! Sound quality is great, but it's really easy to get pinched by these headphones due to the faulty design. These headphones can pinch your fingers and cause you to bleed. Look at the pix. Be careful when using. Beats needs to change the design! The sound quality is great and they are comfortable but be careful!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great connection Purchased for my daughter to go with her new Iphone 7 and it works perfectly. Syncs automatically without any assistance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed For the work I do, I typically use monitoring headphones and never considered buying Beats, but my wife wanted a pair, and I was pleasantly surprised by the size, feel, and sound. Listening to music on these (just about any genre) sounds great and reminds me of the first time I heard my favorite music through a high end home audio receiver as a kid. There's this very rich tone that just feels right.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice overraw The bulbs are little smaller that I expected, so it don't cover my entire ears but the sound and the battery are excellent. Over two weeks I have it so far and only charged it once.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit bassy, but much better than I thought they'd be. Nice. I listen to Rock, Country, Reggae, Jazz, and Pop mainly. These are not audiophile cans - please take this into account when considering these. They are fun bassy headphones, not flat. However, certain songs may suffer with the mid bass bump these headphones have. But even on the songs I've noticed this on, I lowered the volume a bit and that mostly quells the issue until the next song. If I'm listening to a whole album of similarly affected music, I can switch the EQ to bass reducer. On my Mac, I've created a custom EQ setting that has a 125hz dip to compensate. Really, the sound quality is very good, but is aimed more at modern music genres. The sound stage is good, separation of instruments is well above average IMO. The added functions included with Apple's W1 chip sealed the deal for me. So simple to pair with long battery life. My first choice was the Bose QC35, but they are over $100 more expensive and larger, less battery life, don't fold down as small as the Beats and don't have Apple's W1 chip. I would recommend these headphones to almost everyone looking for a good set of wireless headphones under $400. I hope this helps. Good luck.
