These are the beats solo pro this is the new version for 2019, they’ve been revamped redesigned and now they’re wireless it cost $300 US or 380 Candian dollars and they’re available to pre-order today! Now when you buy it you open up the box you’re to get a soft fabric case, which I think is probably recycled material, it’s not a durable case but it’s strong enough to protect your headphones from small scratches. In the box you get a black lightning cable and you get a little connector that allows you to attach your headphones to a bag. The headphones come in various different colors. I went with the gray and gold because I just think it looks absolutely classy and as soon as you open them up, they automatically turn on and connect to your device.
In true Beats fashion, because they’re part of Apple the the H1 chip is inside. This means you get that beautiful pairing with your iOS devices, it’ll automatically detect it and it will connect to your iPhone or iPad. The other benefit of the H1 chip is the processing that it does in the background. For example, because these are now using active noise cancellation the beam-forming microphones embedded inside will constantly scan the environment and optimize whatever audio you’re listening to. The device is made out of all metal, so it feels nice and premium you have plusher pads compared to the previous generation, so when they sit on the sides of your ears, they feel a lot more comfortable. In terms of head cramping, it feels very comfortable on the top like it doesn’t squish my brain but there is some sort of stiffness around the ears. There’s two buttons on the device, the right click pad which allows you to do things like change the volume, press it upwards it increases the volume, press it down, it lowers the volume. If I press the middle, it’s going to pause or play the track, if I press it twice it’s going to skip to the next song and if I press it three times it’s going to go to the previous song.
You can’t control the amount of noise cancellation. It’s either on or off. It’s strong enough that it will block out all that ambient noise inside of a plane or a very loud environment. Turning it off goes to transparency mode and transparency mode allows the sounds of the environment in and because it’s packing that H1 chip it’s using some of its processing to make sure whatever sounds that are coming in sound as natural as possible.
Battery life has been amazing, 22 hours if you have noise cancellation on or 40 hours if you leave it off. It also has fast fuel technology embedded inside which is like fast charging. If you charge this for literally 10 minutes you’re going to get three hours of use. Also, with the latest updates to iOS 13, you have that beautiful feature of using multiple devices with your iPhone. Just like with AirPods three or four people can be sharing the same iPhone get audio and watch content together.
The big question is how do these things sound? I’ll be honest with you, Beats used to have a poor reputation in the past for headphones that were very bass heavy, but ever since I have reviewed the Powerbeats Pro, I found there sound spectrum to have completely changed for the better! These sound really good I was impressed. For example, the Jabra Elite 85H have a very flat sound spectrum but these are more vibrant. It takes the treble, the mid-range and bass. Pushes it up on the sound wave giving the user a more vibrant experience. Are these reference monitor headphones? Obviously not but they do have a good sound spectrum making the music I listen to sound very enjoyable.
The Beats Solo Pros are a nice upgrade from the original edition. They do cost $300 meaning there’s a lot of competition at this price point. However, if you’re looking for a solid pair of headphones, you’re embedded in the Apple ecosystem, you want the advantages of the H1 chip while having good noise cancellation and you don’t mind carrying around a dongle. I think you’re going to love the new Beats Solo Pro. They’re sweat resistant which is something that a lot of people wanted.
