Immerse yourself in an emotional experience. The Solo2 has a more dynamic, wider range of sound, with a clarity that will bring you closer to what the artist intended you to hear. Regardless of what kind of music you’re into, you will feel the higher fidelity sound in your Solo2.


Engineered for comfort. Starting at the center of the flexible headband, the frame of the headphone has been curved like never before, giving the Solo2 a custom-fit feeling. The earcups have been ergonomically angled to complete this natural fit, with pivots for optimal comfort and sound delivery. Finally, the earcups’ premium material helps dissipate heat and minimize sound leakage.


Think luxury sports car. The Solo2 boasts a streamlined aesthetic with fast flowing curves and no visible screws. Disciplined decisions in engineering and material selection have created a more durable headphone that is equipped for extended use. Easily foldable, this premium headphone is ready for your life on the go.


Take control. With the color-matched RemoteTalk™ cable, you can change songs, adjust the volume and even take calls, without having to reach for your device. (Compatible with iOS devices. Functionality may vary by device.)
