Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones - Black

Beats Solo3 Wireless has a streamlined and bold styling design which suits most of the people. I loved it when I wore it the first time. It looked so elegant. The on-ear cushioned ear cups are easy to adjust. You can customize them for your fit for all day listening comfort. Once I fix the ear cups, they stay the same until the next time I touch them.

The headphone’s fast flowing curves and pivoting ear cups complete this natural fit, designed for optimal comfort and sound delivery. Beats by Dr. Dre is a leading audio brand founded in 2006 by Dr.Dre and jimmy Lovine. Beats has introduced an entirely new generation to the possibilities of premium sound entertainment.

It is one of the best on-ear headphones I have used.


The Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones not just good with the apple devices. I have used it android devices like Samsung Note5, Samsung Note 6, Samsung 9, Google pixel and Oneplus phones. It works in the same quality with the android devices.

The important part is Beats Solo3 comes with 40 hours of battery life. It’s a huge jump from the 12-hour battery life Beats Solo2 Wireless used to have and also has the best of any over headphone’s battery life i have tested so far. Beats Solo3 also has fast fuel option – a 5-minute charge gives you 3 hours of playback.

It uses Micro-USB charging cable for charging.

Software and it’s function

Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones comes with the Apple W1 chip. It is one best Bluetooth chip that apple has made so far. This makes the connection between the headphone and the devices so easy. The headphones are ready to go when you are ready to listen. They instantly set up. just like the airpods you just have to hold them near your iPhone and then choose to connect in your iPhone. The same procedure goes to connecting with the apple watch.

The sound is just amazing in Beats Solo3 Wireless. These headphones deliver premium playback with fine-tuned acoustics that maximize clarity, breadth and balance. The comfort-cushion ear cups buffer outside noise for immersive sound so you can experience music the way it was meant to be heard. The bass is so crisp and it is worth for the price.

The Beats Solo3 also comes with integrated on-ear controls, coupled with fial beam-forming mics, allow you to take calls, play music, adjust volume and activate Siri while on the go. These functions are just like the ones integrated on the Airpods except Beats have volume control which Airpods doesn’t have.

Beats Solo3 requires iCloud account and macOS Sierra, iOS 10 or watchOS 3.


Solo3 are less soft and more firm than an average headphone. I suggest Solo3 if you wear glasses because it gives better comfort for glass wearers than other earphones. The headphones seem to spread the pressure over your ears much more evenly than most.

They use headband padding instead of foam. It is used to increase friction, to prevent them from sliding of from your head. I used them while working out and running they stilled same in the position I set them.

  1. These headphones sound like they’re amazing.  I have the Beats Solo 2 and I sure wish I had these because of the battery life.  I use them at the gym and they seem to go dead after only a couple of uses.  I’ve also noticed that I have problems connecting them to my iPhone at times and it sounds like these are much easier.  Do you think the sound quality is better with this newer model?

    1. The sound quality is way better than Beat Solo2. It has a clear and balanced sound. The bass is crisp and it does not affect the music. This is awesome because most of the headphones with high basses affects the way the sound is heard but this one is unique. You won’t be disappointed with the sound in this headphones.

  2. my son has a pair of these and absolutely loved them! Infact he never takes them off.

    He can also answer his phone and use them while on hands free. Ideal for conversation privacy.

    Do the solo 3 head phones allow you to actually answer your phone through the headphones? 

    I was always reluctant to get a pair of beats because of the price but these prices seem a lot lower and previous prices ?

    At the end of the day you get what you pay for and these are quality headphones 

    1. Yes these headphones actually allows you to answer calls through the headphones. The price is low compared to the previous prices because it is sold by amazon. But the quality of the headphones remains the same regardless.

  3. Beats Solo 3 sounds amazing.  The first thing I thought of when I saw the photographs were, wow – they look comfortable, then you spoke about this aspect also. I am in need of a pair of headphones, which I haven’t bought for along time now, so glad I didn’t, saving myself for the best.  They look fantastic too! Thank you for your review on the Beats Solo 3!!!

  4. This great value for money, they look so awesome. I am currently using Note 9+, lets hope they are compatible with the phone or otherwise. I fall in love with the battery, 40 hours with power is a plus, that means I can go for 2 days without looking for a charger. Didn’t hear much about other available functions though, will be very happy if you elaborate on that .

    Thank you so much, great info

    1. Yes they are compatible with your phone. They functions are listed under Software and it’s function.  They have volume control, you can answer phone calls through the headphones, you can access Siri through them and also skipping tracks, playing and pausing.

  5. I’m not well versed in the field of gadgets, but I am currently looking for a good headphone set, just so that when I’m watching videos, I wouldn’t disturb my family. I’m so glad to have come across this review. It really helps dummies like me because you have dissected the product and analysed the functions, together with all the aesthetics, performance, and other features. This Beats Solo3 wireless on-ear headphones looks like a really good buy, I’ll be considering it. Thanks!

  6. Hey Sujandar, cool article. Pop quiz, have you ever done a review on any gaming headsets like the ones out for the PS4 or in general? I like that there was someone else who did a review on headsets and your article gave me a lot to consider as far as buying a pair goes. They are expensive but I see they are well worth the price. Do you own any pairs of headphones and if so, how many? Anyway, your article was awesome.  Good job!

    1. Thank you for your comment R.J. Yes I do have a pair of gaming headphones. I have planned to do some review on it soon. Once the article is ready I will let you know for sure.

  7. I’m a middle school teacher and I know these are quite popular with kids these days. They really seem like a quality head phone. I rarely wear headphones myself outside of exercising, but am really struggling to find a wireless pair that stays in my ears. Any price would be good to pay if they would actually work. Do people use Beats for exercise? Seems like they might be too bulky, but I don’t know! Would they stay on during a run?

    1. Yes I have personally used this while working out and so far they have never slipped off my head. So I would they do a pretty good job staying in the place. Thank you for your comment!

  8. I love the beats headphones, I purchased the beats headphones when they first came out and the sound was out of this world. I was looking for a new set of beats headphones and I came across your article.  You did a great job explaining how great  the new the headphones are, which was enough to convince me to purchase myself a new pair, that’s for sure.



  9. They look good, and I appreciate the honest and detailed review.  These are quite pricey though.  For this price, I could grab a pair of Bose.  I’ve always been under the impression that Bose was the best when it comes to sound quality, but this review certainly is shaking the foundation of what I thought.  How do you think these compare to other brands like Bose in particular?  I’m thinking of giving Beats a try, but I just wanted to see a comparison if you have one.

    1. Yes as you said the price is expensive, but I can assure you that these are really worth spending this much. I love using these headphones. You can also check out this link…. I have written a review about Boss SoundTrue Ultra. You can read the article and see which suits you more. Thank you for your wonderful comment.

  10. I’m so glad I ran into this review today! I was actually looking for some quality wireless headphones to work on some music production. It’s pretty difficult to find ones that seem like they might be comfortable over glasses. But since you specifically mentioned that these ones are comfortable over glasses, I’ll definitely have to check them out. Thanks for the heads up on best price over at Amazon! Just a quick question – you mentioned that this works with apple devices, would it also work with my pc? 

  11. I’m what you refer to as an earphone freak. I go almost everywhere with an earphone or headphone. I just love listening to my musics always and try to keep them to myself. This Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones has some major improvements and I’ll really love to have one. 

  12. These sounds like they are much better than the Solo 2 headphones. 

    As I sometimes wear glasses to give my eyes a rest from contact lenses, I often battle with headphones as the pressure on the sides can give me a headache, so I end up wearing earplugs headphones, which I really don’t like to do. 

    But you mentioned these are comfortable to wear even with glasses, I think I will try them out for comfort. 

  13. 5 minute charge gives 3 hours of playtime? That is pretty awesome when you’re pressed for time.

    I appreciate the recommendation about using those headphones if you wear glasses, I wear glasses and you’re right some on ear headphones won’t work well with glasses, almost to a point where they end up hurting. 

  14. A good set of headphones are so worth it if you are passionate about music.  I have never owned a set of really great headphones but wish I had a great pair.

    I have listened to the Bose headphones that cost about $400 dollars and they were sensational, like another world.

    I would love to try out the Beats Solo Wireless headphones they sound like they could even be better than the Bose.

    With a 40 hour battery you could listen to music for ages without a worry, and to have no annoying cables that would be an experience and a half.

    The price is pretty good too, $269 dollars is affordable compared with the Bose brand.  Thanks for the heads up on the Beats brand, I think I will be looking into this brand they sound crazy good!

  15. This is monster of sounds as good as it can get plus amazing battery life that means you are to listen those tunes on your phones for Avery long time without ever worring about the batteries. But the most important things is 5 minutes charging will last you three hours nothing great sounds.where else can you get that.

  16. Beat Solo 3 seems like a better choice. I love particularly the 40 hours battery life. Does it come with a good casing for storage? I am very particular with the casing as I’ve bought so many without casing and ended up spoilt after a short while. With casing it can help extend the lifespan of the ear headphones. 

    1. Thank you for the comment Florece Ki. They do come with a carrying case which you can fit the entire headphones in them. That is a great plus because now you don’t have to spend any extra money on buying a case for them.

  17. Beats by Dre is a very quality product and it’s no surprise that solo 3 is a real quality product. Very interesting that it has a very long battery life. This means I can take it for camping without worrying about having a power bank. Does the solo 3 come with a cord or is it strictly wireless?

    1. Thank you for the comment Louis. Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones includes a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack, which you can use in case you run out of battery. 

  18. The best part that I like of these wireless headphones is the battery life. 40 hours on a single charge is amazing. I also like the sleek design of these Dre Headphones. The price is a little high but the quality of these headphones is probably worth it. I will pick up a pair of these when I get my next pay check. Thanks for the review.

  19. Music is my life and I am lucky enough to work at a job where I can listen to music all day long.  As a result of that I am always looking for the next great set of head phones.Beats already leads the industry but now you tell me their upgrade involves 40 hours of battery life.  That is absolutely insane.  It means I can likely listen to music all week without charging the phones instead of daily.Thank you for writing a great article to make people aware of the new updated Beats head phones.Dale

  20. I usually use mp3 recordings to monitor the songs my band produce – they give is an idea of where the song is going and how it’s going to sound on compressed media players.

    These headphones look great but I do wonder about their frequency response across the board, as most of these modern headphones tend to boost certain elements of the scale, ruining them as monitor phones. How flat is the response on these?

    1. Thank you for your comment. 

      The comfort-cushion ear cups buffer outside noise for immersive sound so you can experience music the way it was meant to be heard.

  21. This is a new item for me to look at. I did not know about the Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones but was doing a search for reviews as I am in the market right now for a new set. I wanted to get the latest and the best, so in my search, your post came up.

    I like the look and from what you say these will work with all my devices (I use Android systems mainly). In my activities, I often need or want to wear headphones, and truthfully some of the ones I have had in the past did not work well. They slipped off, they were wired in some cases, and they did not stand up to daily use.

    I am willing to give these Beats Solo 3 a try because of your excellent review and the fact that you use these as well. I do not mind paying a bit more for top quality, as I believe that you get what you pay for most of the time when it comes to music gear (this includes everything associated with production or listening of music).

    Thanks for a straight-forward concise review, I was able to get the important points to help me make my decision. Now I am heading to Amazon to secure these! Cheers! 

  22. Wow, 40 hours of battery life! That’s fantastic, especially if you’re travelling and need it on the plane to drown out the noise of other passengers. I also really love how many great colours the Beats Solo 3 Wireless Ear Headphones come in. They’re so stylish! Rose gold would be my pick.

  23. Great post and good info.

    I lost my headphones a while ago and it was quite sad for me. 

    Now, they weren’t wireless, and that was a big disadvantage. 

    Now I was reading your post, this seems to be a very good one, and a decent price. 

    One question, do you have chance to have static electricity with it? I had it with my previous one, and it was a bit hard. 

    Thanks for sharing! 

    1. Thank you so much for your comment. I’m sorry to hear that you lost your headphones. No these ones don’t carry static electricity.

  24. Hi! I travel a lot! And I just can’t travel without headphones. I love to listen to audio books and music. And to me it’s a waste of time to travel without listening to anything. So I’m constantly on the watch out concerning headphones.

    I pay close attention to recommendations. And I’ll definitely follow your advice. Using comfortable headphones is an advantage, and you have described Beats Solo3 as being super comfortable. I’ll also take advantage of the integrated cool functions. I have already made up my mind. I’ll order one of these.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment Henry. It is good to hear that you will be ordering one of these. I hope you like them.

  25. Not alone I’m I captivated by the designs, the fast charge is another feature I love about the Beats Solo 3 Wireless Ear Headphones. Moreover, comfort is one thing I will forever appreciate about any technological device. This headphone is a must have. Thanks for providing us this great review on the headphones, I’ll follow the retail link to check the price.

    Thanks a load

  26. This is a very interesting post! It is no secret that Beats are great earphones but this one sounds even more exceptional than is expected. The design is very sleek and flawless as usual. I like the fact that the ear cups evenly distribute the pressure over the ear.

    I like the fast connectivity and the fact that it works well with such a wide variety of cellular devices. I think these headphones are definitely worth the price because they sound like they will deliver a true audio experience.

    Thanks for sharing this!

  27. You have given an honest review of the Beats Solo 3 Wireless Ear Headphones. The best deal for me is the long life battery. Seems these are the latest headphones.

    I watched the video too. I have Sony headphones but based on your excellent review, I intend to switch.

    Thanks for enlightening me on headphones.
