How good is the design of the BEATS SOLO3 True Wireless?
Starting with the design, the BEATS SOLO3 True Wireless weighs just 215g and has a comfortable look. The plastic cover headband is quite adjustable and offers a sleek, streamlined design that is durable and foldable to go anywhere you want. However, there is an arch steel framework inside the headband to keep the headband stiff and reliable with leather and foam wrap to keep it comfortable. The joint between the headband and the ear cup is fully secured with hinges. As a result, you can fold flat for maximum portability and easy storage.
On-ear earcups are filled with memory foam soft material to provide an excellent comfort. The ear cup seals the sound between the earcup and your ear to give a small amount of passive isolation. The earcup looks good with a premium logo on the front and a circular ring around the logo for volume adjustment. That logo is the main point of touch control and provide a premium quality look.
However, the headphone does not include an IP-ratings for water and sweat resistance. Which means you do not use this headphone during swimming and raining. In addition, at the bottom of the right earcup, there is a privacy button for power and Battery status, connected by a Bluetooth indicator and a power indicator. Then there’s the USB-C input port and mic.
How Good is the touch controls of the BEATS SOLO3 True Wireless?
The headphone come with a very simple and most reliable touch controls. The right ear cups include a USB Type-C charging slot for fast charging and at the bottom of the logo there is a power button with 4 LED flash light for battery indicator. The left ear cups include a 3.5mm aux cable slot for wired connectivity. The volume ring in the around the logo help to increase and decrease the volume. The single tap on the logo provide a play/pause, Double tap for Next track and Triple tap for previous track.
How Good is the audio quality of the BEATS SOLO3 True Wireless?
This design allows for improved airflow and includes the strongest magnetic field in its class. It ensures professional performance in the Hi-X, moves a lot of air, and eliminates ‘wobbling’ of the diaphragm. The Spatial audio creates a more immersive soundscape with compatible products by using dynamic head-tracking for a ‘theatre-like’ experience. With Spatial Audio, company says that sounds can be placed “virtually anywhere” in the hemisphere. As a result, you can hear more immersive music experience.
The BEATS SOLO3 True Wireless headphone not come with an Active noise cancellation. However, this headphone isolate well enough and give a crystal-clear voice calls for longer hours. When worn, I can hear some background noise, but once the music starts playing, my surroundings are much less audible.
Furthermore, the headphone come with a Beamforming mic to give a perfect crystal-clear voice during calls. Beamforming microphones are arrays of microphone elements that can be controlled and shaped via DSP. This allows the beams to be “aimed” at specific areas of the room ti improve voice quality. The headphone also offer support for Siri/Google Voice asssistances. Juts say hi siri, you can control everything.
