All you need to know:

The Beats by Dre Solo 2 Wireless headphonescomes from a product line that has been known to be quite expensive compared to its quality. It’s needless to say that the high price has something to do with the branded manufacturer Beats.

I will not be the judge about whether or not the Solo headphones are fairly priced. It’s up to you to decide if you want to pay the price or not. 

Beats Solo 2 wireless is overall a good solution for listening to music while working out, traveling or just going through your daily routine.

The headphones have a long lifetime and will easily last for years. They have a perfect integrated Bluetooth technology which was rare back when they were presented to the world.

One of the best things about about solo 2 wireless is the comfortable feeling they give you. The soft earbuds are a really nice touch. The flexibility in the headphones also helps on the comfort. I have a hard time justifying the price, though, Solo 2 can’t compete with the other boys in that price range.

There's both a wired and wireless edition of Beats Solo headphones. In this review, we’ll take a look at the wireless ones. 

The Solo 2 is not only for daily use but also a great pair of headphones for running and the gym. So, let me break this down in pieces for you, so you know if it’s something for you or not.

Sound Quality of Beat Solo 2 Wireless

The sound quality in the Solo 2 is the same as it been before, no new revolution here.

The music is loud and pure, and the bass is making the blood in your veins pump like never before.

If you’re not a sound fanatic and just want to have a fantastic time with beautiful music during your workout, these headphones are for you!

However, if you are an audio quality fanatic, these headphones do not match other brands in this price range.
There is no active noise cancellation implemented in the headphones, but don’t worry about that.

The ear-cups on these beauties have an excellent skill of making sure you stay inside your little-isolated music bubble.

Solo 2 Wireless Bluetooth technology

Compared to other Bluetooth headphones in this price range, the Solo 2 has an incredible battery time of 12 hours with only a couple hours of charging through a micro USB.

That’s pretty good compared to some of the other Bluetooth headphones we’ve reviewed. 

Also, their Bluetooth system is excellent. 

There are no problems with the signal. It can reach the phone within the area of 30 feet.

If you’re not a wireless type of guy, you can always use the included wire and connect it to your phone.


Beats Solo 2 with a Beautiful and Smooth Design 

My favorite thing about these Beats headphones is their sleek and beautiful design.

The classical Beats over-ear headphones design is outstanding compared to others. The Solo 2 doesn’t have any visible screws. There is no sharp edges or weird curves.

And best of all, Beats have managed to hide almost every button as a part of the design. For instance, the logo inside the ring, on the outside of the left earbud is a three-functions remote button.

The top and bottom parts are volumes up and down. The logo itself works as a pause/play button. There is also a small LED indicator that tells you how much battery you have left.

A Secure Fit for Sports Usage

The quick eye will probably notice that the Solo 2 is slightly curvier than the previous version Solo.

It means that they clinch tighter to your head than the older version and that the Solo family is suddenly surprisingly good for running, the gym or other sports.

If you wear glasses, it can be a bit uncomfortable when the headphones press the glasses towards your skull. So, I would recommend using contact lenses.

Other than that, they’re pretty comfortable to wear during your workout. If you do wear glasses and still are interested in buying over-ear headphones, I'll recommend you to take a look at the Bose QuietComfort 35.
