Beats Solo HD Headphones: Worth the Money?

Dr. Dre teamed up with Monster Cable to create a stylish and top of the line on-ear headphones perfect for the music lover.

I originally planned on getting the (Red) version of the headphones, but the Best Buy I went to did not have them. They only had the white ones and the black ones. I opted for the white ones, because I thought that the black type was too common for a pair of headphones. If I was going to cash out $200 on a pair of headphones, they better stand out among the others! This brings me to my next point: the price of these outrageous headphones. The Beats Solo HDs sell for $199.99 plus tax, which is pretty high for just a pair of headphones. Best Buy also offered a warranty for an additional $30, and it covers for damage and loss for a year or so, if I'm not mistaken.

Monster made an exquisite job on the design of the headphones, even with the box itself. Once you take out the shrink wrap, you slide out the box and open it using the ribbon on the magnetic flap on the side. Inside, you will find a carrying case for the headphones with the headphones themselves already inside the case. On the left side of the box, Monster provided two 3.5mm cables, one with ControlTalk/mic and one without. Manuals and other information booklets can also be found on the left side.

Excited to test out the sound quality of the headphones, I hastily took them out from the case, attached the cable with ControlTalk to my iPhone, and played a song that I thought would have the best bass out of my music collection. Let me tell you, the sound quality was amazing. I was very impressed by how clear the music was. It gave me a completely new experience with my music, and I was very content with life at the moment. On the inside, I was happy with the way I can listen to my music now, and on the outside, I was happy because I'm rocking Dr. Dre's Beats Solo HD headphones. I felt like I was turning heads.

Something that potential future Beats headphones buyers should know is that my music collection consisted mostly of hip-hop and R B; songs, which is what these headphones were made for. As for rock or country listeners, I don't think you would want to spend $200 on a pair of headphones designed for a different music genre. I'm sure that the music will still sound superb, but their optimal qualities are experienced with hip-hop music with really deep bass in the beats.

In my personal, honest opinion, if you've got the money, the Beats Solo HD headphones are definitely worth it. I know it may sound like a lot (I mean, cmon, $200 for a pair of headphones??) but if you're an avid hip-hop/R B; listener, then these headphones are for you.
