Beats Solo 2 Review

The Beats Solo 2 are an updated version of a popular pair of headphones, but do they sound good enough to justify the asking price?
June 20, 2014

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?
