The Solo HD Beats by Dre have improved dramatically since the first pair of Beats were released. Compared to even more recent versions of Beats by Dr. Dre, the Solo HD on-ear headphones are more comfortable, have improved quality, and an even better mic. Of course the signature trademark of Beats is the astounding, over the top bass which of course lived up to high expectations. The Solo line of Beats make listening to music in the city, on a subway, or in a crowded location, enjoyable and tolerable. They help to block out unwanted noise unlike tin sounding cheap in-ear headphones that are included with your phone or tablet. A good philosophy to have if you're thinking about purchasing the Solo HD Beats by Dr. Dre is that it's worth paying a little extra money for a higher quality product that will last longer and look nicer.
When the volume is turned up to at least 50% on most devices, any background noise or people talking nearby cannot be heard at all. Even if you're listing to a book on tape or soft music or playing games, the design and audio quality will overpower unwanted noise so there is no need to constantly change the volume in order to drown out unwanted noise. The bass adds a real kick to the music experience especially if your favorite genres include rap, hip-hop, or dubstep. The actual audio quality is somewhat sub-par compared to the quality of the bass but overall, the quality lives up to the price tag.
The unique color scheme, padding and design are unique to Beats by Dr. Dre. On most lower quality headphones, the paint will wear, the padding will lose it's "fluff" and parts will break but that is not the case with the Solo HD Beats. Even after months of regular use, the padding stays firm yet comfortable and the paint stays bright without any peeling.
Of course with Beats being one of the most popular brands of headphones, the popular trending bright colors were incorporated into the brand. Originally there were only limited colors available but now that there are diverse color options, everybody can find a pair in the color that fits their personality.
The quality of the microphone may or may not matter to some depending on the intended use with these. If your main goal is to listen to music loudly with bumpin' bass, the quality of the microphone should suit your needs. If you enjoy recording voice notes, using voice text, or talking on the phone with your headphones, you may be slightly disappointed. The microphone is perfectly fine to complete all those jobs sufficiently but due to poor placement of the mic, your voice may sound a little quieter than you would like.
The Bottom Line
Comparing quality to price, the Solo HD Beats by Dr. Dre are worth purchasing. It may be hard for some people to spend this much money on just a pair of headphones but especially if you have a long, loud commute every day, they are easily worth it just to block all the noise out. The ability to have some solidarity occasionally is comforting and well worth every penny spent.
