About Beats Solo™ HD (PRODUCT) RED™ Special Edition from Monster
Music listened to through headphones should capture all the sonic details the artist intended for consumers to hear. However, normal headphones cannot deliver the rich, full sound of today’s digital audio tracks. Beats Solo™ HD (PRODUCT)RED™ Special Edition, like all Beats by Dr. Dre Solo Headphones, are designed for today’s active lifestyles, delivering sound so real that listeners will be amazed by the music coming from something so compact and portable.
“The striking appearance and sonic with fidelity appeals to our customers and loyal Beats by Dre follower in the region” – Jehangir Khan – Regional Manager Monster Middle East.
