Headphones are one area where you don't always get what you pay for. At $200, the Beats Solo2 is certainly not a versatile headphone. If you like the Beats style, and the bass-laden sound, then it might be for you, but the build quality and poor audio make it an expensive choice. For the same price, you can get the excellent V-Moda headphones, if it matches your style. For another $100, the Beyerdynamic T 51-i is a best-in-class headphone, with subtle styling, and a more solid build.
