When Dr. Dre set out to dish out headphones brandishing his name to the general public, he probably expected to raise the scorn of more than a few established manufacturers. While we can all agree Beats are nowhere near your best Sennheisers, even though they may match them in price, let’s remember that Dre’s headphones never claimed to be the best in any particular field, not gaming, music or even film and other multimedia. Be that as it may, they’re anything but ordinary in terms of build and design, and it’s these particular features we’ll be looking into in greater depth. So, let’s put our virtual headsets on and see what all the fuss is about in our Beats Solo 2.0 Wired On-Ear Headphones Review.
Build Quality & Design
The headphones don’t say ‘Beats by Dr. Dre’ anymore, just ‘Beats’. Given the fact that Apple’s dipped its toe into Beats stocks, it’s only understandable, even though it may not be to your liking. It certainly is to ours, though. One aspect that makes these headphones look like a closer relative to the Studios than the Solo headphones is the plastic used, which although glossy and eye-catching, tends to attract every possible fingerprint. We recommend carrying your cleaning cloth with them.
