Performance Review: Beat's Solo3 Wireless Headphones
Hey everybody! KK here to tell you all about her Beats Solo 3 Headphones. NOTE: This is not a sponsored post and I am in no way getting money for this review. I am OBSESSED with these headphones.
Why did I get them?
Like a materialistic fool, I got the Iphone 7, which does not have a headphone jack. People aren’t too happy with that feature but I figured I would just make it work because I wanted the larger Plus size. I had bought the Jaybird X2s first, which were fantastic but unfortunately, they hurt my ears and would not stay in. I would still recommend them though because Jared uses them now and he loves them. I just have weird ears, apparently.
I needed headphones that could connect to my phone AND my computer for video and podcast editing. But I also didn’t want to disturb people at the coffee shop. I decided to give the Beats a try.
What are the features?
The Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones work via Bluetooth but also come with a wire to connect directly into an audio jack. There is a Q1 chip to make sound seamless between iPhone and headphones and a built-in wireless mic, which is useful for my conference calls. It has 40 hours of battery life but also a feature called Fast Fuel. For 5 minutes of charge time, it gets you 3 hours of play. There is a battery fuel gauge on the bottom of the right side so you know where your charge is at. You can also control music and manage calls directly from the left side of the headphones. They are foldable and super portable for travel. It comes with a carrying case so they are protected in your bag.
What do I think of them?
I was pleasantly surprised! With such a big name brand like this, I felt a little hoity-toity but this is one of those cases where you definitely get what you pay for. The phone call sound is amazing and I cannot wait to try it for video conference calls. Pro tip: remember to put them on correctly. If you have them on backward, you will sound muffled to whoever you are speaking to. There are L and R markers on the headphones to help keep you oriented. Another pro tip: Move your hair, long-haired people. Dr. Dre wants you to hear all that sound. Personally, they are a little tight on my head. Granted, I have a huge ass head. These are great for every day but I may stick to my default pair of apple headphones while I work out because I really don’t want to get these sweaty and dirty.
What am I listening to?
You can get the Beats Solo3 Wireless directly at Apple/Beats website or if you want to get them in-store like I did, I went to Best Buy. Again not a sponsored post, just thought I’d share that these were amazing. Have any music recommendations for me? Comment below!
