Whether it’s throbbing hip-hop or noodling folk-rock that floats your boat, Beats by Dre has long been the gold standard in pumping out gloriously crisp, perfectly-balanced tones – making songs sound exactly the way the artist intended.
Strap on a pair and, quite simply, you’ll be blown away. But with so much choice, it’s hard to know where to begin. Do you go for big, eye-catching over-the-head cans? Or discreet in-the-ear buds?
So if you’re not sure what you actually need, here’s our handy guide to Beats by Dre to help you find your perfect match.
Beats Solo3 – for the serious audiophiles
These are the chunky, funky headphones to rock if you’re ultra-serious about your music. Not only do they look the part – choose from five eye-catching colours, each with the iconic Beats logo stamped stylishly on the cup – they also deliver an incredible punch. Play your favourite tunes through these award-winning headphones and you’ll be bowled over by the clarity, breadth, balance and power.
And if mind-boggling sonic quality isn’t enough, an incredible 40 hours of battery life means you can pump the tunes all night long. Plus, you’ll get an incredible three hours playback from an emergency five-minute charge. Awesome, right? To make things even more epic, Beats Solo3 are wireless, too. With a slick Apple W1 connection, you can leave your phone on charge, and enjoy the your favourite albums anywhere in the house – whatever you’re doing!
BeatsX earphones – for saving space
If you don’t fancy carting bulkier headphones around all day, BeatsX will be more your thing – plus, you can blast those massive basslines without messing up your hair. These beefy earbuds come equipped with a slick wireless connection that puts similarly-priced Bluetooth headphones to shame. And they’ll fit neatly in your pocket.
Moreover, BeatsX delivers two hours playback from a five-minute charge. So if you’re ever caught short on power, you’ll be up and running again in no time. And because BeatsX lets you skip tracks and pump up the volume with the touch of a button, you can give Siri a well-deserved night off!
