Having been a musician and a strong headphone enthusiast, owning dozens pairs of high end headphones with matching professional audio interfaces/converters, I wanted to have a extensive test on these Beats Solo HD headphones, and see what the hype is all about.

I first listened to them at various street retailers, but wanted to listen them through a better source, converter and amp so I purchased myself a genuine pair from Amazon to give these headphones a better potential, for a more thorough review.

Packaging, presentation - top notch. It's clear that Beats want to make this headphone very appealing, something once you have in your hand look pretty and you want to feel proud of. The headphone box itself is well made, nice printed outer packaging. The headphone is packed with accessories - a well made soft carrying case, the iconic red cable with inline control for iDevices, cleaning cloth, and some very well printed booklets.

Look and build quality - These I do admit are very stylish looking headphones. Combined with their brilliant marketing and endorsements, these headphone have become a great fashion trend. The design of these are very clever, with the ability to fold them for portability, put it round the neck when not listening to music (so it becomes a £100+ necklace). Build quality initially look decent but upon close look, it's rather poor. The folding mechanism is based on plastic, so after some fair usage, the plastic will wear off, making the headphone loose at the hinge. I have seen countless number of these headphone that won't keep it's rigidity, just flapping about.

Isolation of these headphone is actually pretty good.

--BEATS BY DR. DRE SOLO HD REVIEW--
These headphones come in a brilliant, high quality box which comes across as being very professional. Inside the box are many included accessories such as a carrying pouch. The build quality is very high on these headphones and don't feel like they could fall apart easily. These headphones all look great, after all, these are fashion headphones. Moving onto sound quality, these are bassy! These headphones are perfect for club sounding hip hop music. The bass is punchy and solid which is great for rap/hip hop. The mids aren't too clear however it adds onto the club experience. The highs are fine, nothing amazing, just what you would expect. So if you are out in the market for bassy headphones these are perfect and will not disappoint you.

I purchased my pair direct from the dr dre website. At first was happy with purchase. They are not a purists headphone but they seemed well built and had a pleasant sound which seemed optimised to deliver a weighty performance with the compressed audio that most people used. The headphones developed a fault and one speaker intermittently cut out. Since I am an engineer I dismantled the headset to fix the problem myself. I was horrified to discover that internally the headset had no resemblance of the quality it seemed to present externally. In fact the internals were of cheapest child's toy quality. The audio drivers were very cheap. The sound is only reasonable because they are equalised electrically by the most horrible looking circuit board. It is the amplification required that accounts for the headphones very poor battery life and is wholly responsible for making otherwise cheap account ice sound reasonable. The wiring was so poor and thin that I just realised I had wasted my money. I put them in the bin and purchased a quality pair of phones to replace them from den on. I feel ripped off since these phones are obviously made in china to the lowest standards possible internally. I would never buy any monster branded product again.

We bought these Headphones after much pleading by our 12 yr old daughter and she certainly was pleased up to now. She has had them for less than 3 months normal use and just this week, one earpiece has stopped working and the other has detached (wire still intact) from the headset. Really disappointed in view of spin and spend on this product. Bless her she was afraid to tell us as she knew they cost so much. We can't return to Amazon (unfortunately) as we're outside returns date so we now have to go bat with Dr Beats - fingers crossed they do the right thing.

My Chinese Girlfriend (bless her gentle heart) saved up and bought these 18 months ago. When I heard them demo-ed in the shop, I thought they sounded 'dull'. Maybe not quite run in. I did a direct comparison with a pair of £90 Grado SR80's the other day which are 9 years old. The Grado's were described to me as a "nice stocking filler" by the snooty audiophile salesman. An entry level set of cans I suppose he meant.

They sounded beautiful in a side by side comparison with the 'Dr.Dre' headphones. The 'Dr.dre' really did sound like a pair of £10 phones from a market. I wish I could have explained to my girlfriend how utterly crap her headphones sound, throw them in the nearest skip and then go out and get her a pair of AKG's or something. But I can't. It would break her little heart and mine. It is a secret I will have to take to the grave.

I tried moving them around on my head and checked to see if I had them round the wrong way, etc. I was simply horrified that such an expensive product sounded so utterly awful!!!

How can her expensive set of phones sound so completely devoid of midrange and have such flabby lazy bass? Because she paid for "dr.Dre's" endorsement.

I do not know what kind of Doctor the guy is but he certainly didn't get a PHD in sound quality.

DR. DRE(eadful)!

Do yourselves a favour and avoid these truly awful things. Google "best headphones under 200 quid" and make an informed choice.

Buying celebrity endorsed products is definitely pot luck. You pay extra for the persons moniker. I once had a video recorder endorsed by Phillipe starck. It was beautiful to behold. But in this case dr. whatever's name is on a truly low end product.

I pray daily that my girlfriend's set break so I can bin them and get her something else. Our loved ones should not be subjected to horror's like this.
