Features

These headphones are rechargeable. It worth mentioning that Beats Solo Pro has a function of noise-canceling and the battery life, in the case of using this opportunity, is 22 hours. However, if you do not care about the outside sounds or just do not use this option, then the headphones will work 40 hours. It is exactly the same battery life as Beats Solo3 has if it was charged for 2 hours before. The devices have no aptX support but the battery-free listening mode is an advantage for both.

Sound

The sound of Beats Solo3 is well-balanced. The bass is boosted here and high-frequency noises are well-tempered.

Solo Pro adopts a bass-heavy sound. Rap, hip-hop, and pop are the best genres to listen to using these headphones. Also, with Beats Solo Pro you can hear string instrument resonances.

Comfort and design

A pair of Beats Solo Pro has weight 267 g, while Beats Solo3 weighs only 215 g. It will be comfortable to use these headphones because of the adjustable headband. They are foldable and do not take much space.

Using the buttons you can control volume, start or stop a track and answer calls. With Beats Solo Pro it is also possible to turn on noise-canceling with one of the buttons. For speaking on the phone you can use a built-in microphone whatever headphones you choose, however, only Beats Solo Pro has an in-line microphone.
