Beats Solo HD Headphones review: Beats Solo HD headphones

Description

You really can’t get any more “street style” in headphones than Beats by Dr Dre. This is a branding for Monster, originally an audiophile cable company, but which has been branching into additional areas. Dr Dre is apparently responsible for the sound characteristics of this range. The Solo HD is now the entry level of the range, the (non-HD) Solo having recently been retired.

These are great-looking units, beautifully finished with gloss in a wide range of colours and clean lines. When not extended to fit your ears, the band and headphones form one smooth sweep of plastic. Yet, they also fold up into a reasonably compact size to fit into the well-padded carry pouch.

On top of the head, they have a smooth pad that is quite comfortable. They sit on the face of your ears (they’re an “on-ear” design) and apply quite a bit of pressure, holding them in place for all but the wildest shakes of the head. They sealed quite well, and the closed design of the acoustics meant that they reduced noise from the surroundings quite significantly.

But we also found that the pressure on the ears tended to be a little uncomfortable over time.

The headphones come with two cables, both finished in red and both somewhat weighty (the lighter of the two weighs 21 grams alone, compared to a more typical 8 grams). They don’t seem likely to come apart any time soon. They plug into a standard 3.5mm socket on the left hand earpiece. One of them is just a normal cable, while the other has an Apple in-line remote/microphone about 10 centimetres from the headphone connection. This was designed well so that within moments, we found it possible to make it do what we wanted by touch and with complete reliability. The other end of both cables is of the right-angle kind, making for a compact connection with a portable player.

There is no 3.5mm to 6.5mm headphone adaptor for component equipment included.

Performance

There are virtually no specifications given with these headphones. Not even the obvious things like sensitivity (how loud it will go with a given amount of power) and impedance. It was clear that the former was quite high and the latter quite low. We measured the nominal impedance of these headphones at around 16ohm, which is about as low as headphones go. The advantage of the low impedance is that it draws the maximum amount of power from the low-voltage output (typically around one volt, maximum) of portable players.

The disadvantage is that these players more readily drive into heavy distortion at low output loads.

But these headphones produce so much output that there was no danger of this. We were able to listen to Eminem’s early collaborative effort with Dr Dre (The Slim Shady LP) at ridiculous levels with no undue distortion. You’d do damage to your hearing fairly quickly at these levels, though.

Despite these virtues, we really did not like the sound of these headphones. For all their pretensions of allowing you “to hear what the artists hear”, they coloured it quite noticeably by mucking around with the frequency balance. In short, it was as though a gentle filter had been applied to the music, lowering the output the higher the frequency. We were half expecting there to be a boost in the bass, but this was more an attenuation of the treble.

There was a surprising amount of detail despite this, but the results varied wildly, depending on what was playing. Eminem sounded excellent, but The Who’s Who’s Next, when played loud, lost the clarity that normally marks this remastered album, creating a sort of mushy confusion. Switched on Bach sounded great, with very well extended and clean bass. The male voice on podcasts, and even the female one, were harder to understand because of the reduced levels of the harmonics in their voices, so we found that we had to turn the volume up higher than usual, which resulted in a strange kind of dynamic compression in the fundamental register of the male voice. It was all very strange.

Overall

In the end, we were keen to stop using these headphones because we knew they’d be biasing our hearing, which would then perceive even the most accurate headphones as having a tizzy top end.

Which is a pity, because their build and practical nature was otherwise so very, very good.

Headphone review Monster Beats Solo HD

Workmanship (7/10):
In the design of Beats by Dr Dre Solo headphones
a lot of matte and shiny is used everywhere
plastic. Some metal reinforces the bottom
headbands, but everything above the hinges is
plastic. Quite a strange decision (and,
besides, fragile)
for headphones that are supposed to be portable
use. The hinges themselves look solid and precise,
but rubber pads on the inside of the headband
look pretty cheap after the chic leatherette
in B&W P5 and Phiaton MS400 without speaking
already about ventilated linings at V-Moda Crossfade
LP.

The Solo model also shows slight deformation.
emitter – a crackling sound that occurs
from deformation of the emitter by air pressure. Sometimes this
sound can be annoying. The cable, on the other hand, is nice
and thick, with a small L-shaped plug
at the end. Headphone side 3.5mm jack
not recessed, which allows the use of any cable,
including V-Moda cable for $5.49,
as well as any 3.5 mm stereo adapters.

Ergonomics (8/10): Beats Solo headphones
are on-ear headphones, with the size of the ear pads slightly
less than to HD25-1. The lining itself is not so
soft, as in MS400 from Phiaton, but the cups
headphones have sufficient freedom of rotation, allowing
provide good isolation. The pressing force can
be considered average, and comfort during prolonged use
The Solo headphones are very reminiscent of the HD25-1 experience.
Slightly annoying rubber headband clinging
by the hair (due to friction) when you try to quickly
remove the headphones (as I usually do when testing several
headphones).

Soundproofing (8.5/10): Although Beats headphones
Solo sit almost the same as HD25-1, their isolation is somewhat worse, which is
the result of less pressing force. Soundproofing Solo
is somewhere in the middle between the more weakly pressed
Phiaton MS400, and larger V-Moda Crossfade
LP – non-class leaders,
yet convenient to use on the go.

Sound (6.5/10): Comparing with quality
sound in V-Moda Crossfade LP, which turned out to be lower than expected,
there is something good to say about these headphones –
for example, the bass is cleaner, fuller and sharper.
And bass throwing is much less common than
Crossfade or Sony XB700, although some loss is noticeable
depth and rumbling. Bass on Beats
efficient and aggressive – much more than
soft-sounding Phiaton MS400. But at the same time
missing texture and clarity. It’s a strange way
representations of basses, demonstrating their impact,
but at the same time transmitting not very much musical
information at frequencies below 100 Hz.

This phenomenon is sometimes referred to as “one-tone bass”.
On the one hand, it reduces blur in the middle
frequencies – in this regard, Solo headphones
significantly better than Crossfade and XB700 and similar
on Phiaton. On the other side,
I don’t feel like the bass in Solo is accurate
source, especially at low volume. They erase the details
in favor of increasing volume. Boost intervals
and attenuation is too fast for the amount of bass
that the Solo headphones are trying to convey, and sometimes
there is a feeling of bass in a closed room, like
In a cave. Echoes from the plastic body
does not improve the situation, and lining
faux leather sometimes provide too good
sound insulation, deforming the emitter, and reducing the quality
sound.

Price Match (6/10): (Retail
price – 179 $ ). Although this
the model is often referred to as Hi-Fi headphones, the Beats family
by Dr Dre never promoted
to the market, attracting sound fans. However, as
and B&W, Monster seems to have done some
research on sounds that remain in demand
in the real world. It is sad that while
B&W P5 headphones sound like a product
high class, used in such a way that
sacrifice accuracy for harmlessness, headphones
Beats Solo seem to be limited by the possibilities themselves
emitters that are easily overloaded,
and not fast enough to handle
with complex entries.
