The vast majority of people buying Beats headphones are doing it for the style or fashion rather than audio prowess. But for iPhone users who don’t actually know what bitrate their music is stored at, the Solo HD headphones conveniently sound...

Realising quite how poor the original Solo headphones sounded for their money, Monster has improved things for the Beats HD. However, it hasn't done nearly enough. An attractive design offering good comfort can't hide that their muddy sound...

So O2 are going to be stocking the Beats Solo HD headphones very soon (along with rest of their range) and, as I have been using these headphones for the past 4 months now I thought I would share some opinions of the headphones themselves. The...

It's apparent the Solo HDs don’t have to work especially hard to win on style. The glossy headband and shiny Beats logo are a stylish proposition, while comfort is high on the agenda too. The soft ear pads and padded headband give a secure...

Önskar man bättre ljud än mobiltelefonens medföljande öronpluggar finns det alternativ. Vi har testat åtta hörlurar med mikrofon från 650 till 2200...

International Review By Clubic on 70

Avec le Solo HD, Monster ne fait pas mieux que le Solo. On peut même dire qu'il fait pire puisque le casque est plus cher. En effet, le son soi-disant haute définition est encore plus brouillon et bouché qu'avec le Solo normal. Si...

International Review By Les Numériques on 60

Pas franchement de nouveauté sur ce Solo HD par rapport aux autres casques de la gamme Beats by Dr. Dre. Ils sont toujours aussi jolis et bien finis, et toujours aussi douteux sur le plan...
