I thought I would never buy Beats headphones...always felt their reported quality didn't justify their price.

 

However, I am now looking at buying from JB- I have a gift card for there- and don't like most of the options.

 

I've narrowed it down to the Solo 2's...with the gift card, I'll 'only' be shelling out another $130, and at least they are tough (something my last Beyerdynamics were decidedly not...hence the need for new 'phones)

 

But they don't have them on demo. Today I tried the Solo 3's...which were pretty good in most ways, but I'm wary of the older generation...

 

Anyway, long story short- has anyone tried/owned the Beats Solo 2's??

Lol, on the odd chance that he hasn't made a decision since 17 January 2017

 

I'll suggest the Sennheiser Momentum as something that just blows the any Beats out of the water.

Ah yeah, never quite fit my audio tastes, but not a bad choice.

 

At least you'll be able to go over 100bpm without it becoming mud; unlike beats.

Beats are beyond amazing for, you guessed it, Music by Dre.

The second you step into a varying genre, the bass extension that those cans allow.... just.... $10 earbud worthy.

Yeah, they suit overall. I listen to a fairly wide variety of stuff.

 

And for the price, with the foldability + case, worked out well :)
