Headset

Headset:
"A true professional beat, higher affect to what you've missed out from other headsets its a must have, if you truly love to enjoy your music, I also use them for my iPad air2 for movies, with a clear sound, this are spectacular headphones."
_
"Caused discomfort in wearing the headset for long usage."
_
"The only negatives I could find with these new Solo's is that they are quite a tight fit out of the box, but I'm sure that they will start to loosen up with a few weeks with a decent amount of wear time, and the other one is that they still come with the same carry case that the old solo's also came packaged with which don't really offer much protection since it's not a hard shell case, they do however have very nice padding on the inside so to not to scratch the headset, the other negative is that they don't offer a matte finish version which I would very much prefer over the glossy finish which makes the headset a finger print magnet."
_
"comfortable headset and great sound."
_
"This headset is the best I ever got sound wise."
_
"Now I am looking for a different headset I have owned Bose and Able Planet, both were better by far than these now I am choosing between Samsung Gear Circle or the Sol Republics Shadow."
