Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones

Forum
Hardware & Accessories

So... I have an iPhone 7, and I love it, but I recently experienced the horror of not having a headphone adapter or braille display at a Christmas gathering. Anyone tried Beats Solo3 headphones? I'm leaning towards those because they still have the 3.5 adapter, but I am open to suggestions. AirPods scare me because I cannot stand to wear Apple EarPods, but if they're different, let me know. I'm up for lightning connection if that's what I have to do in order to avoid horrible lag, but I really want something for my phone, Mac, iPad, and iPod instead of something specifically for my phone. I need something that gets at least 12 hours of battery to a charge, folds up small so I can put it in a pocket or tote bag, and isn't easily destroyed. I go through a pair of Marshmallow earbuds every 3 months, so needless to say I don't have a real good track record with headphones... Thanks in advance for all the help! :)

I just got them for Christmas, and I'd say, the lag isn't bad. With the new Apple w1 chip, they last for a whopping 40 hours. Yes, they have the 3.5mm cord, but you have to plug them into the lightning port with the lightning adapter if you want a wired connection. Overall, I'd definitely recomend them. They do fold up really small, and they come in a nice bittle case that is a little bigger than a po`ket, but if you have a small bag, it will fit.

I got a pair for Christmas too, and the lag is barely noticable. I am running them on an iPhone 6.

for those who has the apple airpods, is there any light or bulb something like that on the buds on the ear? some of the bluetooth out there has the light on there earbuds so very noticeable on dark areas, may it seems so good the apple airpods without light, that is my opinion .
