    Hi everyone,

    I’m looking into purchasing some wireless Beats headphones. I’m either gonna be going for the Beats Solo 2 or the Beats Solo 3. I think they both have wireless versions. However, I’m kinda broke atm so I have the money for them but I also need to save lol. I’m unsure about where I should buy them. The cheapest price for the Solo 3s is on amazon but is it risky to buy from here? They’re also on Curry’s for a little bit more. I could get them even cheaper on EBay but I don’t want them to be counterfeits lol..?

    Also, if anyone has the headphones, is there actually much difference between the Solo 2s and Solo 3s? I could be saving a bit of money by going for older versions..

    Thanks, and also if anyway is thinking about dissing me for my headphone choice DONT.

    If you have UNiDAYS then there’s a discount code for Apple. I used it for my Beats X.

    Honestly I'm not trying to dis your headphone choice but I would say not to buy beats. I've had them before and I find they're overpriced for what they are. You can get much better quality headphones for a lot less money. Beats are more just fashion for the sake of being able to say 'I have beats' if you want good quality headphones there are other brands that are much worthwhile.
    Again not 'dissing' your headphone choice just being honest and giving honest advice.

    Beats are a waste of money. You're buying for the brand name, not the audio quality. lol.

    Sorry but I think you better off getting Bose headphones.

    I used to love Beats, owned a pair of Solos like 4 years ago until they broke and started leaking music.

    They just looked super cool and literally girls would look at me. It is good in a fashion sense but when it comes to the nitty gritty it is utter ****! I bought Sony headphones for like £35 and they were way better.

    Sorry but I feel you may be better of getting better headphones at a cheaper price

    I would strongly suggest reconsidering your choice of brand, as mentioned by several people above Beats are notoriously porn value for money. For the £200-ish you'd be paying for the wireless Solo 3, the Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless and Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear 2.0 Wireless are significantly better sounding Bluetooth on-ear headphones. If you can forgo wiress connectivity, either of those pairs' wired version or the V Moda XS are excellent for under £150.

    If you are determined to buy Beats, only buy from Amazon pages where the listing is "fulfilled by Amazon" or sold by Amazon directly, to ensure you get a genuine pair.
