With redesigned drivers we hope that the bass boominess of its predecessor will be transformed to a sound that is closer to the original source and more comfortable for extended use. Audiophiles should give this a listen.

The new Solo 2 looks quite similar to the old design. Tweaks have been made to make it more comfortable. The easily foldable frame of the headphone is now more curved giving it a custom-fit feeling. The earcups have been ergonomically angled out to complete this natural fit, with pivots for optimal comfort. Generally it looks more solidly built with thicker headbands and bulkier than before. It comes with a color-matched remote cable, allowing you to adjust volume, select tracks and even answer calls.

The Solo2 headphones are now available for preorder for $199.95 and are available in attractive colors of pink, blue, gray, black, white and red.
