Beats has always been a style-focused brand. It influences the box as much as it does the headphones themselves. Slide off the outer portion of the box, and the box that contains the headphones is solid red. Aside from a slight bit of embossed branding on the very front. Open up the box, and the first thing you’ll see is the soft carrying case. The headphones themselves are already inside the case, and everything else is underneath. You’ll get a 3.5 mm audio cable, carabiner, and a packet containing the manual, warranty info, and of course a sticker.
How are the Beats Solo 2 headphones built?
The Beats Solo 2 headphones come in a variety of colors. Such as blue, black, white, silver, red, and pink are available. The finish is very shiny, though it didn’t seem to attract nearly as many fingerprints as I initially thought it would. Still, if you want these to look their best, you might want to keep a microfiber cloth handy to keep them clean. These headphones also feature no visible screws and use a flush hinge design.

How it feel?
The inside of the headband has a very nice feel, almost like leather, though it’s clearly plastic. Putting them on, the Beats Solo 2 are fairly comfortable, though the fit was definitely snug. It wasn’t enough to be uncomfortable, though your mileage may vary. If you’re thinking about picking these up, you might want to see if you can try a pair on first just to see if you can deal with the tight fit.
The only connectivity you’ll find in the Beats Solo 2 is the 3.5 mm audio cable with built-in mic and remote. Luckily, unlike a few other brands out there, the cable uses standard 3.5mm jacks on both ends instead of any proprietary connections. So on the off chance that the cable dies on you, you can easily replace it with another cable.
The built-in remote is of the three-button variety, though how much functionality it offers depends on the device you’re using. Only the middle button works on Android devices, providing the same functionality as a one-button “clicker” style remote. If, however, you use an ios device all the buttons will function as expected. Call quality was fine with the built-in mic, though these probably aren’t a pair of headphones you’ll want to wear for making calls around the office.
