I was planning on buying a pair of Solo Beats HD either way, but when the Apple employee told me he brought the wrong ones up and that they were a limited edition version, it was kind of a no brainer. For the same price as regular Solo Beats HD, I got a pretty awesome limited edition item. I really dig the gold and black finish.
Having been wanting a pair for a while, I was expecting brilliant sound and man was I blown away. I put on a track from the Transformers Score to test the bass and I actually teared up. Hearing the music in this new way was astonishing. With the Solo Beats, you don't miss anything; it's like listening to truly loss-less audio. Not to mention the bass which quite literarily rocks the headphones. The noise cancellation feature the Beats have is also fantastic; if you're listening to a track and have these on, you really can't hear any outside noise. If you are in a high traffic area, you might hear some big cars go by, but other than that, the feature is fantastic. I'm looking forward to testing these out on a plane because that is where the true test is. I have purchased "noise cancellation" headphones before, but they have really never gotten the job done when on board a plane.
Despite the fact that these are on the larger side, the Solo Beats HD are actually quite light, making them more portable than some of the other larger headphones on the market right now. Being able to fold them up and put them in your pocket is perfect and if you don't want them just sitting in there, the headphones come with a pretty decent carrying case. I did hear from a couple of people that with the older version of the Solo Beats HD, the band was snapping where they folded in. This is no longer the case as these have been reinforced. Again, mobility is great with these, and if you like going to the gym, they are great for working out.
These limited edition Solo Beats HD are exclusively sold from Apple for $199.99. I highly recommend them for any music lover who doesn't want to miss a beat of music. 5/5
