The Beats Solo Pro Wireless are very well-built on-ear headphones with a sleek, premium-looking design. They have a fairly neutral, although slightly excited sound profile, and a very good active noise cancellation feature that does a good job of blocking out ambient sound. However, their fit is very tight for some people, which can be uncomfortable, and they can only be used via Bluetooth out-of-the-box as the included charging cable doesn't provide audio. On the upside, their continuous battery life of 24 hours should be more than enough for most people.

Our Verdict

7.7 Neutral Sound

The Beats Solo Pro are decent for neutral sound. They have a well-balanced sound profile, although it's a bit on the excited side with some extra bass and treble. However, they deliver sound quite consistently, and the peaks and dips in the response aren't very audible. However, their on-ear design isn't great for a very wide and natural soundstage.

Pros
  • Very well-built design.
  • Fairly neutral sound profile, although a bit excited.
Cons
  • No EQ or presets.
7.4 Commute/Travel

The Beats Solo Pro are decent for commuting. These on-ears have a great ANC feature that blocks a lot of ambient noise. Their continuous battery life is also very long and should be more than enough for long flights. However, they may be uncomfortable for some because they fit fairly tightly.

Pros
  • Great battery life.
  • Great isolation performance.
Cons
  • Tight fit may not be comfortable.
  • Not very portable.
7.1 Sports/Fitness

The Beats Solo Pro are satisfactory for sports. They fit tightly and don't trap as much heat as over-ear headphones. They aren't the most portable, but you should still be able to fit them in most gym bags easily. They aren't as good as in-ears or earbuds for working out, but if you prefer on-ear headphones, they're a decent option for this use.

Pros
  • Great battery life.
  • Great isolation performance.
Cons
  • Tight fit may not be comfortable.
  • Not very portable.
7.1 Office

The Beats Solo Pro are okay for office use. They block out a lot of ambient chatter and work environment noises thanks to their ANC feature. However, they aren't the most comfortable option to wear for long periods because of their tight fit, and they can't connect to two devices simultaneously, which is disappointing. On the upside, their long continuous battery life means you probably don't need to charge them every day.

Pros
  • Very well-built design.
  • Great battery life.
  • Great isolation performance.
Cons
  • Mediocre microphone performance.
  • No audio cable included.
  • Tight fit may not be comfortable.
5.6 Wireless Gaming

The Beats Solo Pro are compatible with Bluetooth-enabled PCs, but their latency is likely too high to be suitable for wireless gaming. They aren't compatible with Xbox One or PS4 consoles.

5.4 Wired Gaming

These headphones can't be used wired and therefore can't be used for wired gaming.

6.6 Phone Calls

The Beats Solo Pro are mediocre for phone calls. The microphone makes your voice sound thin and muffled. If you're talking in a noisy area like a busy street or a subway station, it may be hard for the person on the other end to hear you. However, these headphones have a great ANC feature that effectively isolates you from a good amount of noise, like the rumble of plane and bus engines and background conversations.

Pros
  • Great battery life.
  • Great isolation performance.
Cons
  • Mediocre microphone performance.
  • Tight fit may not be comfortable.

Style

The Beats Solo Pro are very stylish headphones. They have a premium look thanks to the wide metallic band which follows the traditional Beats design. These on-ears are fairly big and almost look like over-ears, especially on smaller heads. They come in multiple different color schemes, making it easier for you to match your preferred style.

The Beats Solo Pro are fairly comfortable, but some people may find them too tight. The padding on the cups is thicker than on the Beats Solo3 2019 Wireless, but they don't feel plushier against your ears when you put them on. They aren't that heavy, and the headband does a good job of redistributing the weight of the headphones. The size of the headband can be adjusted, but the extension is quite limited, so these may not fit people with bigger heads.

The Beats Solo Pro have a good control scheme. There's a small, very clicky ANC/talk-through button on the bottom of the right cup, and the rest of the controls are on the left cup. You can easily control the volume, play/pause, manage calls, and skip tracks by pushing the top, bottom, or center of the cup. It's easy to use but can be a bit confusing at first because it feels intuitive to use the left and right sides for track skipping, but they aren't actually buttons. You need to fold the headphones to turn them off, as there's no power button.

Design
Breathability
Avg.Temp.Difference 1.7 °C

The Beats Solo Pro are impressively breathable. Due to their on-ear design, not much heat stays trapped under the ear cups. There's some decent airflow, allowing your ears to breathe more than with over-ear headphones. However, these aren't as ideal as in-ears for sports or working out, as you may sweat more than usual.

The Beats Solo Pro have sub-par portability. They're quite bulky for on-ears. On the upside, they fold into a more compact format, but the cups don't swivel to lay flat. If you're looking for more portable Beats headphones, check out the Beats Studio Buds True Wireless.

The Beats Solo Pro's case isn't bad. It's soft and should slightly protect the headphones against scratches, but that's about it. The case isn't very sturdy and doesn't absorb shocks or protect the headphones against water exposure.

Design
Build Quality

The Beats Solo Pro have a great build quality and feel like high-end headphones. The materials used feel solid and sturdy. They have a more premium look than the Beats Solo3 2019 Wireless thanks to the metal-alloy headband. The control scheme on the left ear cup seems to be the weak link since even though the buttons are only located in the center (where the Beats logo is) and above and below, the left and right sides wobble and feel like buttons if accidentally pushed, which is a little confusing.

7.0
Design
Stability

These headphones are decently stable but aren't the ideal choice for runners. You can easily keep them on your head during a casual listening session, but more intense head movements can make them sway off your head easily. On the upside, they're wireless and fairly tight, so they might not feel loose to everybody.

The Beats Solo Pro have a pretty neutral sound profile suitable for a wide variety of music genres. That said, these headphones also pack a bit of extra bass and treble, which may sound a bit too excited for fans of neutral sound.

The frequency response consistency is good. Treble delivery is slightly inconsistent and depends on the fit and positioning. You may need to readjust them on your head each time you wear them to get the same listening experience.

The Beats Solo Pro's bass accuracy is excellent. There's a bit of extra thump in the low-bass, which should satisfy fans of genres like EDM and hip-hop, but the overall response is pretty neutral.

The Beats Solo Pro have decent treble accuracy. It's fairly well-balanced, but vocals and lead instruments are very detailed and slightly harsh, while sibilants like S and T sounds may be a bit piercing.

The Beats Solo Pro have very good peaks and dips performance. There aren't many audible peaks and dips, except a few narrow dips in the treble, which affect the brightness and detail of instruments and lead vocals. However, that shouldn't be too audible for most people.

The Beats Solo Pro have amazing imaging. The group delay is below the audibility threshold, which results in tight and accurate bass and treble ranges. Also, the L/R drivers of our unit are well-matched amplitude, frequency, and phase response. However, please note that these results are only valid for our unit, and yours may perform differently.

The Beats Solo Pro have an awful passive soundstage. They don't interact much with your outer ear, so sound seems to come from inside your head instead of from all around you. Because of the closed-back design, the soundstage also seems small and closed off. If you're looking for a pair of on-ear headphones with a better passive soundstage, check out the Grado The Hemp Headphone.

The Beats Solo Pro's weighted harmonic distortion performance is great. Most frequencies fall within good limits, which should result in a clear and pure audio reproduction. There is very slight distortion at normal listening volumes in the treble range, but it shouldn't be audible for most listeners.

The Beats Solo Pro have a great noise isolation performance. While their ANC feature isn't very good at blocking out lower-frequency sounds like the rumbling of bus and plane engines, it blocks out an impressive amount of office-type noise, like background conversations and humming A/C units.

The Beats Solo Pro have an impressive leakage performance. They don't leak much noise even at high volumes, so you can crank up your music in a moderately quiet environment without bothering people around you. Most of the leakage is higher-frequency noise, so it sounds thin. However, you probably shouldn't blast your music in a very quiet environment like a library.

The microphone's recording quality is disappointing. Recorded speech sounds muffled and lacks a lot of detail. You should be understandable in very quiet environments, but these aren't the best option for important phone calls. If you want superior recording quality from a pair of wireless on-ear headphones, consider the Jabra Evolve2 65 Wireless, which have a boom microphone.

The Beats Solo Pro's integrated microphone has mediocre noise handling. It struggles to separate your voice from background noise, so it may be hard for the person on the other end to hear you in noisy environments like a busy street or subway station. This microphone is better-suited for very quiet environments.

The Beats Solo Pro have a decent battery performance. They provide roughly 24 hours of continuous use on a single charge, which should be more than enough for most. They recharge in less than an hour and a half, which is quick. However, they don't have a power-saving feature, so be sure to fold them to power them off, or else the battery could drain while you're not using them. On the upside, if you disable the ANC, you get up to 40 hours of continuous playback time, according to the manufacturer. Please note that battery performance can vary with real-life use, so you may have a different experience.

The headphones can also be used wired with a lightning cable, but you'll need to purchase one separately as no audio cable is included in the box. If you want a pair of on-ear headphones with a much longer-lasting battery, check out the similarly-performing JBL CLUB 700BT Wireless.

These headphones have decent Bluetooth compatibility. They're compatible with Bluetooth 5.0 but don't support multi-device or NFC pairing. They don't have much latency with iOS or Android devices, but you may notice audio lag on PC. However, some apps also seem to compensate for latency, so your experience may vary. Also, unfortunately, our dongle doesn't take advantage of the H1 chip, so if you're using an iOS device, you may get lower latency and a more stable connection.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Beats Solo Pro are available in a variety of color variants: 'Black', 'Dark Blue', 'Light Blue', 'Gray', 'Red', and 'Ivory'. We tested the 'Ivory' variant, but we expect our results to be valid for the other colors as well. If you come across another variant or your headphones are different, please let us know in the discussions below so we can update our review.

Compared To Other Headphones

The Beats Solo Pro have a surprising and very efficient ANC feature that blocks out a lot of ambient noise. However, they aren't the most comfortable headphones we've tested as they're rather tight. See our recommendations for the best noise cancelling headphones, the best on-ear headphones, and the best wireless Bluetooth headphones.

Beats Studio3 Wireless

The Beats Solo Pro Wireless are slightly better than the Beats Studio3 Wireless if you don’t mind the on-ear design. The Solo Pro Wireless have a slightly better noise cancellation feature and their sound profile is better balanced than the Studio3. On the other hand, the Studio3 are more comfortable thanks to their over-ear design and come with an audio cable to use when wired, which you need to buy separately for the Solo Pro.

Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless

The Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless are better over-ear headphones for most uses than the Beats Solo Pro Wireless. The Sony are more comfortable, have a more bass-heavy sound profile, which some users may prefer, and their companion app offers a graphic EQ plus presets to help you adjust their sound to your liking. Their ANC also does a significantly better job of blocking out noise around you, and they have longer continuous battery life. However, the Beats have an H1 chip, which makes it easy to seamlessly pair them to your Apple devices.

Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless

The Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless are more versatile than the Beats Solo Pro Wireless. The Sony's over-ear design and amazing ANC feature block out a lot of noise, which is better for commuting or at the office. They're also noticeably more comfortable and have a better battery life. Their app also offers more customization and plenty of controls. On the other hand, the default sound profile of the Beats is more neutral, but you can't EQ them like you can with the Sony.

Sony WH-XB900N Wireless

The Beats Solo Pro Wireless are slightly better headphones than the Sony WH-XB900N Wireless. The Beats are better-built, have a more neutral sound profile, which some users may prefer, and their ANC can significantly block out more ambient noise. However, the Sony are more comfortable, you can customize their sound profile using their companion app's graphic EQ and presets, and you can use them wired.

Apple AirPods Pro Truly Wireless

The Apple AirPods Pro Truly Wireless are better headphones than the Beats Solo Pro Wireless. The Apple are in-ears that are easier to take with you on the go. They have a more comfortable and stable fit, a better noise isolation performance, and a longer total battery life. However, some users may prefer the Beats' on-ear design.

Apple AirPods Max Wireless

The Apple AirPods Max Wireless and the Beats Solo Pro Wireless have different strengths and depending on your usage, you may prefer one over the other. While both headphones are very well-built, the Apple are more comfortable, have a virtual surround feature, and block out more ambient noise. They also have a standby feature to help conserve battery life when they aren't being used and exhibit lower audio latency on iOS and Android. However, the Beats have a more neutral sound profile and their fit is more stable.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II/QC35 II Wireless 2018

The Bose QuietComfort 35 II/QC35 II Wireless 2018 are better headphones than the Beats Solo Pro Wireless. The Bose are more comfortable, have a more neutral sound profile, which some users may prefer, and a significantly better noise isolation performance. They also have a better overall battery performance and can be paired with up to two devices at a time. However, the Beats are better built.

Jabra Elite 85h Wireless

The Jabra Elite 85h Wireless are slightly better headphones than the Beats Solo Pro Wireless. The Jabra are more comfortable, have a more neutral default sound profile, which some users may prefer, and better overall mic performance. Their battery performance is better, and their companion app offers a graphic EQ and presets to help you adjust their sound to your liking. However, the Beats are better-built, and their ANC system does a significantly better job of blocking out noise around you.

Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless

The Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless and the Beats Solo Pro Wireless have different strengths, and you may prefer either one. The Powerbeats Pro have a more comfortable and stable fit suitable for sports, and their integrated mic offers better overall performance. They also have a better battery performance. However, the Solo Pro are better-built, have an ANC system that can block out more background noise, and their continuous battery life is longer.

Beats Solo3 2019 Wireless

The Beats Solo Pro Wireless and the Beats Solo3 2019 Wireless are headphones with different strengths and depending on your usages, you may prefer one over the other. The Solo Pro are suitable for mixed use and office use. They feel better-built, their sound profile is more neutral, and they have a  great ANC to help cut down ambient noise around you. However, the Solo3 2019 have a better battery performance and a bass-heavy sound profile, which some users may like. They're better-suited for sports too as their fit is more stable.

Beats Studio Buds True Wireless

The Beats Solo Pro Wireless are better headphones than the Beats Studio Buds True Wireless. The Solo Pro are better-built, have a more neutral sound profile, which some users may prefer, and their ANC does a significantly better job of blocking out ambient noise around you. They also have longer continuous battery life, and they have an H1 chip, so you can seamlessly pair them with your Apple devices. However, the Studio Buds are more comfortable and lightweight.

Apple AirPods (2nd generation) Truly Wireless

The Beats Solo Pro Wireless are better headphones for most uses than the Apple AirPods (2nd generation) Truly Wireless. The Beats have a more neutral sound profile, which some users may prefer, an active noise cancelling (ANC) system which blocks out a great amount of ambient noise, and a better battery performance. However, the Apple are more comfortable.

Bose 700 Headphones Wireless

The Bose 700 Headphones Wireless are better than the Beats Solo Pro Wireless. The Bose over-ear design is noticeably more comfortable and isn't as tight as the Beats. Their ANC feature is also better for blocking out sound in noisy environments and their microphone has a better recording quality and noise handling capability. On the other hand, the Beats have a longer continuous battery life from a single charge, although they don't have a power-saving feature. The Beats take advantage of the H1 chip, which may result in better overall connectivity performance, but we couldn't test this. 

Sony WF-1000XM4 Truly Wireless

The Beats Solo Pro Wireless and the Sony WF-1000XM4 Truly Wireless have different strengths, and you may prefer either one. While both headphones are well-built and have great ANCs, the Beats are on-ears with a more neutral sound profile, which some users may like, and longer continuous battery life. They also have an H1 chip for seamless pairing with your other Apple devices. However, the Sony are more comfortable, their companion app has a graphic EQ and presets to help adjust their sound, and they have a better battery performance.

Beats Solo3 2018 Wireless

The Beats Solo Pro Wireless are a nice upgrade over the Beats Solo3 Wireless. They have active noise cancelling, which is very useful in public transit or at the office. However, the Pro are a bit too tight for some, and the Solo3 feel more comfortable. On the other hand, the Pro feel more high-end and more durable. They both have a fairly similar sound profile, but the Pro are a bit more neutral.

Anker Soundcore Life Q35 Wireless

The Anker Soundcore Life Q35 Wireless are slightly better headphones than the Beats Solo Pro Wireless. The Anker are more comfortable, have a customizable sound profile thanks to their companion app's graphic EQ and presets, and have a better performing ANC.

However, the Beats are better-built and have a more neutral sound profile out-of-the-box.

HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II

The Beats Solo Pro Wireless are more versatile headphones than the HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II. The Beats are wireless on-ear headphones with a more neutral default sound profile, which some users may prefer, and superior noise isolation performance, thanks to their active noise cancelling system. They also have an H1 chip, so you can seamlessly pair them with your Apple devices. However, the HyperX are over-ears designed for gaming. They're more comfortable and have a significantly better overall boom mic performance.

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds Truly Wireless

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds Truly Wireless are better headphones than the Beats Solo Pro Wireless. The Bose are more comfortable, their ANC can block out more background noise, and they have a more neutral sound profile, which some users may prefer. However, the Beats have a better battery performance and an H1 chip so that you can seamlessly pair them with your Apple devices.

Sennheiser PXC 550-II Wireless

The Sennheiser PXC 550-II Wireless are better than the Beats Solo Pro Wireless for most purposes. The Sennheiser are much more comfortable, stable, and portable. They can be used wirelessly or wired with the included 1/8" TRRS cable, and their mic has a much better overall performance. They support multi-device pairing and work with an app that has sound customization options. On the other hand, the Beats have a more neutral default sound profile, which some listeners may prefer. They also have longer continuous battery life and a much better build quality.

Anker Soundcore Life Q30 Wireless

The Beats Solo Pro Wireless and the Anker Soundcore Life Q30 Wireless are casual-use headphones with different strengths.

1More Piston Classic

The Beats Solo Pro Wireless are better headphones than the 1More Piston Classic. The Beats are better-built, have a more neutral sound profile, which some users may prefer, and have an ANC system that can block out a great amount of ambient noise around you. Some users may prefer their wireless design, and their H1 chip allows you to pair them with other Apple devices. However, the 1More are more comfortable.

Razer Opus Wireless

The Razer Opus Wireless are better for most uses than the Beats Solo Pro Wireless.
