Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • Noise cancelling is better than other Beats models, such as Studio 3, which constantly adjusts automatically to adapt to your surroundings
  • One of the best Beats headphones with excellent sound quality and a balanced sound signature. There's a lot of low-end bass to keep the energy in the gym without overpowering the vocals and instruments
  • The build quality of Beats Solo Pro is solid throughout with an elegant matte look, anodized aluminum expanders, memory foam cushioning and thick headband padding that looks and feels premium
  • Transparency mode lets you keep an ear open for external announcements without taking your headphones off
  • Apple Audio Sharing allows you to seamlessly share your music with another person nearby with compatible headphones
  • Auto On/ Off automatically turns them off when you collapse the Solo Pro headphones and turn them on when you unfold them
  • Up to 22 hours when ANC/Transparency mode is turned on, up to 40 hours when turned off, and Fast Fuel function allows 3 hours of playback in 10 minutes
  • If the battery runs out, they can still be used in passive mode with lightning-to-lightning cable (for iPhones) and lightning-to-3.5mm audio cable (for Android phones)
  • They are available in six bold and bright colors to suit your preferences and style
  • On-board mic and controls to answer calls, skip tracks, adjust volume levels, music play/pause, flips between ANC and transparency mode, Bluetooth pairing and connect with Google Assistant on your android phone
  • Combined with Class-1 Bluetooth, the W1 chip offers best-in-class Bluetooth coverage of approximately 100-120 feet, hands-free Siri and seamless pairing with all Apple devices using the same icloud account
  • Sweat resistant design to withstand difficult training or adverse weather conditions

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • Not recommended for people with large heads or who wear glasses, may be a bit uncomfortable due to the strong clamping force
  • Not for subtle sound, Beats Solo Pro Headphones are designed for bass heavy music only
  • When using headphones in a quiet room, the amplifier has a slight hiss due to the digital processing of ANC
  • If you want to connect Solo Pro to an in-flight entertainment system, you'll need Apple's $35 lightning-3.5mm audio cable
  • No "auto pause" function when you take them off, making them a little less convenient
  • These headphones are not yet comparable to Bose and Sony. Sony WH-1000XM3 has better sound quality, while Bose QC 35 ii has better Active Noise Cancelling
  • Included soft-shell case protects against scratches and slight damage to water, but not against falls and impact
  • No companion app support for customization, such as ANC or EQ adjustments, create music profiles like other high-end competitors' headphones
  • At $299.95, these are expensive Active Noise Cancelling headphones and most alternatives offer 80-90% of the same experience at less than half the price

Highlights

  • Active noise cancellation (ANC) effectively blocks external noisewhile preserving audio quality
  • Transparency mode allows you to stay aware of your surroundings while listening
  • Up to 22 hours of listening time with ANC on all the time and up to 40 hours with ANC/Transparency mode turned off
  • Fast Fuel provides 3 hours of playback from a 10-minute charge
  • Six bold and bright colors to suit your preferences and style
  • Advanced acoustic system provides powerful sound in a balanced tone
  • Auto-on/off when opening and folding headphones
  • On-board controls for music, phone calls, and voice capability
  • Apple H1 chip and Class 1 Bluetooth for extended range and fewer dropouts
