I left my iphone in another room because I wanted to test the strength of the Bluetooth signal. after only one hour, I was very impressed. These headphones sat on my ears without hurting my head or making me uncomfortable. Although these headphones supposedly lack ANC (active noise canceling) I did not notice any of the ambient sounds around me when I wore the headphones. I had previously been using the AirPods Pro with ANC turned on all the time. These Beats Solo 3 headphones seemed to be just as effective at blocking out the ambient noises as my AirPods Pro were.
It will take a little bit of time getting used to having a physical power button to turn on and off, compared to using the AirPods and slipping them into their recharge case when I am not using them.
The carrying case for the Beats headphones is a tight fit for the headphones. I was a little worried about breaking the headphones when I took them out. But I was very careful and I was able to put the headphones away without breaking them.
I am very satisfied with this headset. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a reliable and high quality wireless headset for their Apple device.
Every time you use it, you have to pair it again. That can take a few steps. And it makes it difficult to quickly answer a phone. I have to take the call on my iPhone and then pair it mid call.
Also when I take a walk, I have to stop walking and if pair it, unless I had already paired it.
Apple earpods pair as soon as you put them on. And this has the same chip as the earpods, so it should be easier. I think it's because the earpods can sense when you put them in your ear.
Also, fairly short battery life. You will have to recharge it every day. I don't get 40 hours as advertized.
Small issues. If you want an over the ear headset, you will be very happy.
I purchased my first pair 5 years ago and I took a chance with refurbished option. They were great. At one point I was having trouble with the cord and Apple replaced them, no questions asked. I finally laid to rest my old pair to purchase the blue tooth version.
I ordered the used version at a big discount. They were in the original packaging, I doubt they had ever been opened. I love them, they are snug and absolutely perfect. The sound quality is superior to me old ones and I am very happy I purchased them.
