Beats Solo3 Wireless Review

I was going everyone I’m Adam Molina if you haven’t heard of the beats solo headphones before you might be lying but that’s all right we won’t judge you for better or for worse beats is probably the most well known Brandon audio right now but they haven’t released anything new in quite some time and now that the iPhone 7 is out we know why one of the headphones released the announcement were these the beats solo Wireless three and they come with a new Apple w1 chip which is supposed to enhance the Bluetooth experience if you have an iOS device what if you don’t have an iOS device and what about that signature sound quality that’s so polarizing is it still there let’s find out when you open the box you get the classic beats change the way you hear a sound message pulling that out you’ll get a small soft shell carrying case and in there is where you’ll find the headphones you’ll also get a 3.5 millimeter audio cable with an inline mic and remote a micro USB charging cable a small carabiner clip and of course a small sleeve with the instructions of beats sticker and the warranty information so we’re looking at the glossy black color option here just a fair warning they do seem to have a thing for fingerprints but they also come in a bunch of other colors which is one thing that beats has always been really good at the solo 3 Wireless are pretty much identical to the solo twos so if you’ve worn those before you won’t be surprised by anything these on yours are still made of hard plastic all around and have really nice leather ear cups I found the padding to be particularly great because the headband fits a little too snug for my taste but the plush ear cups definitely make up for it now that said these still are not the most comfortable headphones I’ve worn by a longshot one thing that I’m still not a fan of is the plastic padding on the bottom of the headband in my testing I found that the grippy plastic on the bottom sometimes pulls my hair when I’m adjusting the headphones or taking them off but it’s that same plastic that keeps them on your head good and bad I guess while these headphones do hold up to your average twists and turns they still feel very brittle the included soft shell case is great for portability but not for protection if you’re thinking of picking these up I would definitely consider getting a hardshell case the headphones do fold down to a very compact size which is good news of your computer on the side of the left ear cup you’ll find a single multifunction button with the Beats be logo the bottom of that ear cup has a 3.5 millimeter input so you can hardwire in the included audio cable one thing that is a little annoying is that the B logo on the right ear Cup is identical to the B multifunction button on the left ear Cup but it isn’t a button and I found myself pressing it all the time with no results obviously what you will find on the right ear Cup is the power and bluetooth pairing button along with a micro USB input for charging so this is where things take a turn and the beats solo 3 begins to show off all their cool new features this section might be a little longer than usual just because there’s so much to talk about with this new w1 chip if this is the future of Bluetooth I’m pretty excited pairing to an iPhone 6 was flawless and when I turned on the headphones the pairing card immediately popped up on my phone all I had to do was hit connect and the headphones were immediately paired to every device on my iCloud account it’s all pretty seamless I also found that parents of the headphones required to keep the iPhone within a few inches if there’s two phones in pairing mode the connect card will pop up on the iPhone that’s closest to the beat so low threes think of it like NFC but with a longer range and the added benefit of connecting to all of the devices on your iCloud account at once technically my iPhone 6s doesn’t even have a w1 chip so how does it work with the beats solo 3 Wireless that does well the w1 chip is only half of the equation the other half was pushed through in a software update with iOS 10 this means that hopefully we could see that software come to other devices in the future making for an easier way to pair over Bluetooth that most likely won’t happen since its Apple but which brings me to the downside of this process if you’re on anything other than an iOS device like an Android device you don’t get any of these cool features and you’re out of luck connecting to my Nexus was the same old pairing process with Bluetooth settings and menus which isn’t really a big deal but you are missing out on some of the cooler features of the w1 chip as far as playback controls go you’ll get the same experience on both Android and iOS if you’re using them wirelessly you can tap the multifunction button once to play or pause music or answer an end phone calls tapping it twice will skip to the next song and three times will return to a previous song holding it down will access Siri or Google now range was also given a huge boost because of that w1 chip and we were able to get to around 80 feet easily with a wall in the way so beats claims that the battery in these will ask you an insane 40 hours for reference the previous solo twos only lasted 12 and the difference is again thanks to that new w1 chip these get pretty loud and testing them on max volume got us about thirty one and a half hours so it’s not hard to believe that you can reach forty hours if you listen to music at normal human levels if you do manage to deplete your battery throwing them back in a charger for five minutes is enough to get you another three hours of battery life now this is Beats we’re talking about so naturally the solo 3’s have a pretty strong low-end that said I found it to be more overpowering than I can usually tolerate hip-hop and electronic music which can usually benefit from a stronger base felt way to Bhumi to me and it made for a pretty unpleasant experience overall because of this emphasis on bass the mids also suffered listening to generator second floor by freelance whales really showcases this issue when the consistent drum kicks come in about 40 seconds into the song as soon as they start the banjo all but disappears as everything is pushed out of the way even the vocals don’t have decent detail until the bass kicks drop out considering how loud these gut beats did a pretty good job at pulling back the highs songs that normally have loud piercing sounds aren’t really that painful but the highs are also really lacking in detail the finger picks scratches and naked as we came by iron and wine which usually lend a nice live feel to the song is barely noticeable here one thing that’s worth mentioning is that sound leakage is pretty real with these if you’re listening to them above about 60% volume the people next to you might be able to sing along the beats solo 3 Wireless got me pretty excited for the future of Bluetooth headphones just not that excited for the beats solo threes connecting to iOS devices is a breeze and the benefits of the w1 chip range from a longer battery life to a longer range but there are still some issues that can’t be overlooked the build quality is still not the greatest and sound quality is a huge issue in my opinion but let’s be honest these are going to fly off the shelves anyway so at least they come with some real tangible benefits still $300 is not worth it to me and I will be returning mine we’re giving the beats solo 3 Wireless a 7 point 2 out of 10 and that’s it for our review of the beats solo 3 Wireless thanks for watching if you want to know more about these headphones or any of the other products we review
