I feel kind of guilty having these not knowing who dr dre is !I get the idea and kind of guess its some rapper ? I think you should know and buy into the idea I mean who would probably buy these knowingly otherwise.

These headphones are the defacto cans for getting to an fro. They are supposed to be more basey than a neutral sound hence the name beats. The solo 2 replace the solo headphones that were popular but that were criticised by the purists. Yes the crowd who probably have their audio centres mounted on gold pins on a hard floor. They sit there listening to classical music with a glass of wine in one hand on a saturday night - maybe by chance. So how are the beats solo 2 's ? We would love to know what you think of yours.

I can now answer the following BIG Question ! It saysor it is said (reviewed elsewhere) that they are good for exercise or sport. Not specific enough for me

Are the beats solo 2 good for running or jogging ? 

I took mine out for a run and they were excellent they were non intrusive and at no point did I feel they were heavy - and they helped keep my head that little bit warmer.
