    "I'm a bit of an audiophile, and when I can't listen to music on my giant speakers due to concerns with neighbors, I get a bit frustrated by the audio limitations of most pairs of headphones. I set about trying to find the absolute best pair of headphones I could find, and online consensus seemed to be the Beats Solo3. I was skeptical, especially considering their price and the brand reputation, but I bought a pair anyway. These are not the best headphones on the market, not by a long shot. They're a decent, comfortable pair of high end consumer headphones, but no more, and they're kind of over-priced for what they are. True audiophiles should look elsewhere, and I can only shake my head sadly at the limited audio knowledge of the wide variety of people who recommended these to me. I'd rate them far higher ordinarily when compared to ordinary models, but in the context of truly first rate headphones, these don't even rate."

    "I was looking for headphones that were considered to be the best headphones on the market. While the Bose SoundTrue around-ear headphones II are a great, amazing sounding pair of headphones within their price bracket specifically designed for Apple products, these certainly are not what I would consider the best headphones on the market.

    "So much comfort in one headphone . The headpiece i can wear all day without it irritating my ears and earlobe. It was hard to find something so comfortable in this price range but i have to say skullcandy came a long way from what they use to make when they first came out. I always recommend their brand every time headphones talk comes up"
