Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • Beats Solo3 Wireless are expensive pair of headphones with no Active Noise Cancellation, a feature now quite common in high end models
  • Turn up the volume beyond 50-60%, let a lot of sound escapes the earcups and people nearby can hear it 
  • Sometimes the songs can be muddy as the bass is big, bold and hard-hitting 
  • Plastic frame, synthetic leather-topped foam and fake leather material does not feel premium 
  • Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones become a little uncomfortable after a while due to inward pressure 
  • The micro-USB charger is useless for apple users, which means an extra cord to carry when traveling 
  • There must be some juice left to use the Apple Beats Solo3 with wire. If they are completely dead, they won’t turned on 
  • The wired connection can’t plug directly into new iPhones (iPhone 7 onwards) without using the 3.5mm adapter 
  • Some control functions besides the microphone are not compatible with all models of Android phones
