Ears on… with the beating heart of music headphones

“Without music, life would be a mistake,” uttered the immortal Bob Marley.

Well, without Beats Solo2 headphones, maybe listening to music in its entirety would be a mistake?

An exaggeration of Apple’s new audio products of course, but behind the iconic logo and severe sense of style lies a device which has been completely redesigned and reimagined.

Billed as “lighter, sexier, stronger, and more comfortable,” Beats Solo2 does in fact encompass all the energy and excitement commonly associated with Beats, as well as a powerful, reengineered sound.

The leading audio brand co-founded by artist and producer Dr. Dre and Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine, has once again raised the bar for excellence across both form and function with the introduction of this product line of headphones.

It appears Beats has taken the beloved headphone to the next level with Solo2, offering an improved listening experience with a wider range of sound and enhanced clarity.

When you think about Beats you think about iconic design, incredible sound, premium quality, profound comfort and of course, portability.

The company, recently acquired by Apple, has worked hard to earn this reputation and of course, such a reputation comes with very high expectations.

To best describe the premium consumer headphones however would be to simply say yes, they provide an incredible level of over-the-ear comfortability, coupled with the following:


The Solo2 headphone has a more dynamic, wider range of sound, with a clarity that will bring you closer to what the artist intended, whether you’re into hip-hop, heavy metal, jazz, electronic, or country.


The Solo2 headphone maintains the same sleek, streamlined aesthetic as the iconic Beats Studio, with fast flowing curves and no visible screws.

Starting at the centre of the flexible headband, theof the headphone has been curved like never before, giving the Solo2 a custom-fit feeling. The ear cups have been ergonomically angled to complete this natural fit, with pivots for optimal comfort and sound delivery.

Finally, the ear cups’ premium material helps dissipate heat and minimise sound leakage.

Colours: The Solo2 headphone will be available in Black, White, Red, Blue, Gray, and Pink.

Price: Solo2 headphone retails for NZ$349.00 and is available at authorised retailers including JB Hi-Fi, Noel Leeming, Harvey Norman, Mix Foundation, Real Groovy and Yoobee.
