When we reviewed the Beats Solo Pro, we liked them for being a unique set of headphones relative to other Beats cans. But at $299.95, they aren’t cheap. However, the Solo Pro is now available for $249.95—the lowest price we’ve seen yet.
The Solo Pro have a clean look, thanks to the smooth matte finish and the “hidden” headband adjustment. The headphones come in six colors, with all of them carrying the discounted $249.95 price tag. My personal favorite is red, though you might want to go black if you want something stealthy.
The Solo Pro aren’t lacking in the feature department, either. They support active noise cancellation (ANC), which worked extremely well in our testing. The Solo Pro also support Transparency Mode, which lets you keep them on and still hear what’s going on around you. There’s a button on the bottom of the left ear cup to switch between the ANC and Transparency modes.
The right ear cup houses a big button, which lets you raise the volume, lower the volume, play and pause your music, jump to the next track, and go back one track. The Solo Pro also feature a Lightning port for charging and the same H1 audio chip found in the AirPods Pro. That means the headphones will pair quickly to iOS devices and support the “Hey Siri” hotword.
As nice as the Solo Pro’s build and features are, it’s worth noting that we didn’t like how tight they felt on the head. The feel didn’t detract from the well-balanced and clear sound, but it’s something to keep in mind if you plan to wear the Solo Pro for a while. Speaking of wearing the headphones for a while, the Solo Pro provide up to 40 hours of listening with the ANC and Transparency modes turned off.
It’s not clear how long this price cut will last, so if you’ve been thinking about picking up these headcans, now’s the time to do it.
