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.Read more ›
Now, all of this talk of burn in. Some people say it's rubbish, some say it works. All I can say is the sound seems to get better the more I use them. This could be that I'm getting used to them, or the encoding of the mp3s varies from album to album or whatever. All I know is the sound quality on my set of beats Solo HDs is the best I've heard from any speaker. Perhaps I just haven't heard a really amazing speaker, or perhaps these 'phones are actually really good.
Bass is rendered brilliantly. Be it electronic music or a thudding bass drum off a rock album, its sounds great. Not muddy, just deep and hard hitting. It basically sounds how it was meant to in respect to the album currently playing. Nirvana's 'In Utero' and Marina and The Diamonds 'Electra Heart' are twp examples of sounding great on the Solo HDs.
Unfortunately, the build quality isn't great, as everyone else seems to say. I'd imagine if you're a teenager at home with mum and dad and money is no object, these would break VERY easily - but as an adult with bills to pay, I treat a pair of headphones that cost three figures very well indeed. So mine aren't going to break any time soon. But it is an aspect of the 'phones that let them down.
But lets end on a plus point. They sound great to my ears and I'm very happy with them. The snobs can naff off, basically.
UPDATE - AUGUST 2015: Still going strong. No breakages, no cut outs. Still sounding great.
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.
