Fans of Beats who have been lamenting about the lack of on-ear wireless audio cans can now rejoice, because the Solo has gone wireless. Simply dubbed Solo2 (or more correctly Solo2) Wireless, the new wire-free Solo looks like a shrunken down Studio, which means it is quite a looker and looks more sophisticated, if I may say. However, the real star feature is naturally, wireless audio transmission, in which this pair of audio cans uses Bluetooth connectivity to offer up to 30′ of wireless music enjoyment. It is also packed with built-in mic for handsfree calls and on-ear controls for music control. The onboard rechargeable battery provides up to 12 hours of wireless listening, but in the event of the battery goes out of juice, you can always plug in the included RemoteTalk cable and keep on immersing in your favorite tunes.
Solo2 is made of durable housing, and touts user comfort and convenience like flexible headband, pivoting earcups, and foldable design for easy storage and transportation. Like the Studio Wireless, it is also fitted with a supercool illuminated LED fuel gauge so you will always be in the know of the battery status. As before, what goes under the hood is not disclosed, but if you believe in Beats, you’d be expecting “dynamic and wide range of sound with a natural clarity.” Offered in black, white or blue, the Beats Solo2 Wireless Headphones will be available soon for $299.95. We refuse to comment on the price, though.
