Monster Beats Solo HD

I was checking out some headphones which I can use for my iMac, iPad and my iPod and possible my iPhone, I guess looking for an all round comfortable and stylish set of headphones.
It is apparent that the Monster Beats Solo HD range do not have to work especially hard to win on style, the glossy headband and shiny Beats logo are a stylish proposition, while comfortability is high on the agenda. I love the soft ear pads and padded headband that gives a secure fit, and the ear pads give a good seal and a mean job of cutting out outside noise.
When you are listening to songs with lots of base I found that the Solos are in a league of their own, as the sound delivered was deep and rich and overall you will find the sound quality far superior than other headsets that boast similar qualities. For a headset that is not noise cancelling, they sure do a job better than some noise cancelling headphones I have tried out.


The Solo HD headset comes in the standard beats box and inside you will find an instruction manual, a pouch with the headphone’s in them, 2 detachable 3.5mm cables (one with control talk and one without) and a cleaning cloth. As ever with the Beats range, care in the product packaging is just as important as the product itself, style from the get go.
I initially set out to buy a headset for use for my iPod and iPad but soon found out that this headset offers a wider scope of use with its ControlTalk feature. The ControlTalk feature gives you on-cable playback control of your iPod or iPhone, including pause, next track and volume and also only on iDevices can you use your voice to control other features, just as you would use your iPhones voice commands. ControlTalk's built-in mic lets you talk hands-free on your iPhone and works with online voice or video chats.


The headphones fold conveniently to fit in the small pouch, perfect for travel.


Overall you are paying for what you get and that is a great deal more than what other headsets offer. This headset will not disappoint you as it is sturdy, lightweight and with the built in ControlTalk feature gives you far more than just a headset.
