Beats Solo3 review

Sound

The Beats Solo3 specs let it to provide the bass that hits pretty hard. The music with this device gets super loud. It is not sluggish or super-boomy like low-quality bassy headphones. The considered headphones have pretty reserved treble, and very smooth mids, which means that there is nothing to cut through the low-end in tracks with incredibly strong bass lines or mixes with boisterous kick drums.

Noise cancelling

The headphones made by Beats do not have noise-cancelation.

Connectivity

This appliance comes with a cable that is 130 cm/4.2 ft long. The audio cable can be detached. The headphones have a 3.5 mm TRS.

Beats Solo3 has a micro USB charging port and charging cable that has to be plugged in USB-A jack.

Comfort and design

Beats Solo3 is perfect for traveling since they are lightweight and foldable. This device weighs only 215 g/7.58 oz. It has a quite comfortable adjustable headband and a built-in microphone. Plus, the headphones are equipped with built-in buttons for control.

The Solo3 has a light indication that warns you when the battery is low. You get this device with a carry case.
