Beats Solo 3 Wireless review

 

Fashion-focussed cans gets smart

Excellent wireless stability ; Good Bluetooth-phone interaction ; Energetic, punchy sound

Firm headband pressure ; Lack of fidelity for price

Smart wireless headphones that make some real techy improvements, but the sound unfortunately lags behind. The Beats Solo 3 Wireless make huge improvements in some areas, and change little in others. Top on its list of achievements are class-leading...

Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones review: Bass solo

 

Beats has been pretty quiet of late, but with the launch of the new iPhone 7 and iOS 10 the company has released four new headphones - including an update to its popular Solo range. The Beats Solo 3 headphones offer a great music experience for a...

W1 connectivity for Apple users, big bass, long battery life, quick charge

Snug fit is a little too snug, bass can drown out detail, expensive

The Beats Solo 3 headphones offer a great music experience for a certain listener. The W1 connectivity options and huge battery life are certainly the stars of the show for the Solo 3.

Beats Solo3 Wireless

 

The Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones use Apple's W1 chip for easier connectivity with iOS devices and deliver a balanced Bluetooth audio experience for bass lovers, but feel a tad expensive.

Powerful, bass-forward (but balanced) audio performance. Apple W1 chip enhances experience with iOS devices. Detachable cable with inline remote for passive listening.

A bit overpriced. Headband can get uncomfortable during longer listening sessions.

Beats may be known for its massive bass, but the Solo3 Wireless, while certainly sculpted in the lows and highs, don't go over the top with their bass response. The result is a bass-forward sound signature with crisp highs and solid overall balance....

Beats Solo 3 Wireless

 

It's time for another crack at the Beats Solo formula, which has already produced some of the most popular headphones in the world.

Clever new tech for iPhone users, but otherwise sub-par performance from these new Beats headphones.

Beats Solo3 Wireless review

 

Beats' Solo3 Wireless on-ear Bluetooth headphone ($300/£250/AU$400) looks nearly identical to the Beats Solo 2 Wireless because -- on the outside at least -- Beats hasn't updated its design. The big change is on the inside: The Solo3 uses Apple 's new...

The Beats Solo3 Wireless is a well-built wireless headphone that sounds good in both wireless and wired modes and is relatively comfortable to wear for an on-ear headphone. Its battery life is best-in-class (40 hours) and has a remote control built-in...

It's expensive, and doesn't sound quite as good as other wireless headphones that cost $300.

Beats has taken the same headphone that so many people know and love and improved its battery life dramatically, but the price is still too high.

Beats Solo 3 Wireless review

 

These headphones push the boundaries of wireless headphone technology, but not sound quality...

Full-bodied, bold sound ; Clear, clean midrange ; Excellent battery life and range ; Good connectivity with the iPhone 7

Lacks subtlety and detail ; Dynamically flat ; Fit is too tight ; No Lightning connector for iPhone 7

The Solo 3 Wireless boast impressive wireless technology, but lack the detail and subtlety we expect from headphones at this price

Beats Solo3 Wireless review

 

A clever new wireless chipset means these long-lasting wireless cans can go the distance, too

Incredible wireless range ; 40 hour battery life ; Great design

No noise cancellation ; Better-sounding headphones available at this price ; Limited range of colours at launch

The Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones offer phenomenal wireless range and battery life, but at this price, we’d have liked noise cancellation as well

Beats Solo 3 review: The best wireless headphones for your iPhone 7?

 

Apple's W1 chip gives the Beats Solo 3 speedy pairing and a stellar battery life

40-hour battery life ; Light and comfortable ; Ridiculously simple pairing

Sound not to everyone's taste ; Quite expensive

It may look a lot like its Solo 2 predecessor, and it remains pricey, but the W1 chip adds a great deal to the Beats Solo 3 package. If you’re an audiophile or need noise cancellation then you’ll want to look elsewhere – maybe towards the more...

  (Rating Hidden)

The Beats Solo 3 Wireless on-ear headphones are designed to give you high-quality audio with no cables. With a claimed battery life of 40 hours, they shouldn't leave you tuneless in the middle of a long day either. But does the reality live up to the...
