Anybody tried it ? Is it a closed can ? How's it compare to the Beats By Dr.dre ? Here's the price Beats by Dr. Dre Official Site

Welcome to head-fi. Beats headphones are not considered hi-fi level and gets no respect around head-fi.

What I say is give them an audition and see if you like it. The Beats Studio is actually fairly good, and not bassy as people make them out to be. It may be a bit overpriced, but it does look good when you go to a Starbucks or travelling around.

But how about Beats Solo at the price $199?
post #4 of 134
Or how about getting a good headphone for $199 instead?

At $199, you get yourself a nice pair of Sennheiser HD 555, Denon AH-D1001, Shure SRH840, Grado SR225i, and many others. Good hunting.

Good point. The HD25-I is highly regarded as a closed, portable all-rounder that does well with many genres of music.

Can't the top brands hire great marketing teams to combat this problem?

I misread your post.

Once again, no one answered the original poster's question. He did not ask, "What headphone could I get for the price of the Beats Solo that sounds better than that model?" He asked if anyone had listened to the Solo and what they thought of it. I'm interested in having this question about the Solo answered because my son is interested in that particular model. But once again, it's turned into a "For that price, buy this instead..." thread.

While it's certainly fine to offer alternative suggestions in the same price range, i get really, really tired of people in this forum totally ignoring the original questions and chiming in with a vote for their personal favorite. That seems to happen with astounding regularity here. Plus, I would bet money that the people who said "buy this instead" have never listened to the Solo and therefore have no basis for comparison to their favorite can.

And please, all this is my opinion, so let's not totally derail this thread by having people respond telling me to chill out or trying to justify this phenomenon.

So can somebody please answer the original question about the Beats Solo?

Thank you.

Well, if you're admitting that they aren't in stores, you won't get much of a response from people who've heard them, since that number will be extremely low. If I were to take a stab at how they sound, it's probably very similar to the Studio model, just slightly lowered specs (entailing perhaps a muddier sound/less pronounced sound, for example). Personally, while I have obviously *not* heard the Studio, I wasn't very impressed with it, and can't imagine being impressed with its lower-end counterpart.

As for Sjino: No one said they ever heard the Solo (note the most recent post); people are suggesting other phones because of Monster's, and the Studio Beats, reputation. Not everyone is trying to derail the thread by suggesting other options. Perhaps they think the OP should actually consider the options mentioned instead, as they may turn out to be a better purchase.
