Beats Solo 2 Review

For quite some time now, Beats has been one of the most highly visible brands in the world of consumer audio, and considering the company has recently been acquired by Apple, it isn’t likely that will slow down any time soon. While many are speculating about what the future holds for Beats, this pair of headphones isn’t going to answer any questions, as the release date makes it clear that these were in the works well before the acquisition.

As the name indicates, the Beats Solo 2 are a sequel of sorts to the very popular Solo headphones. As with any pair of headphones from this company, it’s expected that you’re paying a little more for branding and style (a sore point for many audiophiles) but that isn’t everything. There are two questions here: First, are they worth the asking price? Second, are they a significant improvement over the original Solo headphones?

For the full review, check out the video above or head over to Sound Guys for the written review.

Are you planning on buying the Beats Solo 2?

    Overpriced. Remote mostly only works with Apple devices, with one button working on Android. Beats, die.

      I don’t know. I personally think they are delicious and would pay anything for a good beet nowadays. They don’t taste good on both sides of the scale, but I think it works great for me and my tastes!

    In Guatemala or even in some southern Europe countries such as Greece or Spain..a whole family can eat for a couple of months with the price of those overpriced Beats earphones…why are they so damn overpriced? A pair of Senheiser’s entry-level are way better than this ones…still don’t understand it and I’m afraid I never will..
