Beats Solo2 headphones: Redesigned for better sound and comfort

Beats Solo2 headphones

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Apple is buying Beats, the company has announced the brand new Beats Solo2 on-ear headphones, the latest in the Beats by Dr. Dre line. Touting a newly-refreshed physical design alongside improved sound quality, Beats Electronics says that the new Solo2 model will offer “a wider range of sound and enhanced clarity.” It's a good thing, too, as many have complained about the Beats by Dr. Dre line having bass-heavy sound that loses the highs and mids.

If wearing previous models of Beats headphones was something you found to be a chore, you should know that the Beats Solo2 has also been redesigned with a new look that's said to also be more comfortable thanks to better weight distribution and a memory foam-like material in the larger ear cups that should make them feel cooler and put less of a hard squeeze on your ear lobes.

You can pick up the new Beats Solo2 now. They're available in pink, grey, white, blue, and red for $199.

Beats Solo comes to Beats by Dr. Dre line: Smaller, Lighter, $219

Beats by Dr. Dre Solo White

Hot on the heels of the Heartbeats by Lady Gaga headphone news, we now have word on another new line in the line - the Beats Solo. As you can see from the image, the Beats Solo is a smaller, lighter, and sleeker take on the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones. Monster Cable aimed to make these headphones a lot more portable, while maintaining the great sound that the Studio edition is known for. Since we haven’t gotten our hands on these, we can’t confirm that, but we do know that the price is a lot more palatable for the masses. The Beats Solo will be available in November in black and white, and will cost $219.95. That’s $80 less than the larger Studio model.

We’ve got an image of the black version for you after the jump.
