Rated 3 out of 5 by mancalledshrimp Great sound, but pricy and flimsy
Love the sound, look and comfort of these phones and bought them despite hearing that they had a tendency to snap because I am VERY careful with my gear. But one day, about 2 months after purchase, I picked them up to put them on and they practically blew up in my hand! Seriously disappointed - it's a major, major design flaw that can't really be tolerated in such a high-priced product. On the bright side, my request to replace them was answered quickly and efficiently. That's good, because I'm worried the next pair will snap too!

Love the sound Don't like the construction. The entire top band is only plastic and when these go on your head trust me it is under stress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by avj37 small edition of Studios but not
Very good audio quality. But, it does get very uncomfortable during long duration of usage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TiRiSh Not That Great
For me, the SOLO is the lowest quality of the beats by dr.dre heaphones line. The sound is not that great. Well it is still beats but we have better sound quality for this price (Heartbeats/Tour). Thing I really do like is the cable. That's all. Other advantage on the studio is it is lighter, easier to carry but, yes of course, sound matters hahaha I've got some problem with the ear cushions also. They get out easily. It's a real pain to put them back :/ I am planning on buying a set of SOLO HD hoping that the sound is MUCH better than on the SOLO.

by NJ to NYC commuter Headpiece broke in less than a year
I use my Solo's everyday during my commute to work. I love the high quality sound it produces, my music sounds better than before! The earpiece broke after 7 months of wearing it, and the headpiece snapped into two after 10 months of wearing it. I am very careful with my beats because I love them. I place it in its bag when not in use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sky the rocker great but flimsy
i used this constantly after i got it and after only about a month some of the padding on the top of my headset was falling off. Then some of the parts that held the ear pieces in fell out or broke. Then after a few months the snapped, by just a bump they snapped
