Since my school days, September has always felt like my “New Year.” For me, back-to-school meant a new wardrobe, new gadgets, new goals, and essentially a brand new Shay! It’s been years since my last graduation, but I still can’t shake that feeling, so as September approaches, I set my sights on some fresh gear and headed to Best Buy Canada (where else!) for my gadget fix and picked up the new Beats by Dre Solo3 Wireless Headphones.

Known for their award-winning sound and their sleek and stylish hallmark design, Beats by Dre have been hot for more than a minute, consistently putting out high-quality products, like these smart, wireless headphones. This latest release appeals to the techy in me, but are cute and on-trend enough to match my fly.

I chose the classic, all-black design but, trust me, there’s a colour in the Solo3 line design palette to suit every season, mood and personality. Their yellow and navy blue options are gorgeous and will definitely make you stand out in any crowd, but if you’re more low key, glossy white or black might be more your flavour. It’s a difficult choice, but they all look bomb, so you’ll be stunting regardless!

Aside from their great look, my absolute favourite feature of the Beats Solo3 headphones is the hidden controls, because who doesn’t love a good reveal? The signature “B” on the right ear cup acts as a play/pause button, the ring around the B controls the volume, and there’s a hidden mic within the cup itself which allows you to take calls. How cool is that?!

If you haven’t added them to your cart by now, here are four more reasons why you should go to Best Buy Canada and get a pair too: 

The Sound

I love listening to feel-good music, and with the Solo3s, it really feels like the music springs to life. The sound is full, and the trademark Beats bass is energizing – but not overwhelming. These are perfect for the morning commute if you’re looking for a pick-me-up to get you into a “slay the day” kind of mood.


The look and feel of these headphones exudes quality, and it’s clear that lifestyle was a big consideration in the design. Along with looking great, they also fit firmly yet comfortably on your head, making them great for jogging and exercise, or simply to eliminate the worry of them slipping off if you fall asleep on the train. When you’re not using them, you can easily fold them up and pop them into their equally cute carrier case to keep them safe.

Noise Isolation

“Headphones on, world off” is an actual thing with these headphones. Between running a business, being a mom, and just generally being a highly sensory person, it can be super difficult to focus on one thing at a time, like writing a blog post. The Solo3s help me to zoom in on the project at hand by cutting out the background noise and centering my attention.

Ultra-Long Battery Life

The Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones boast up to 40 hours of battery life, which is way more than enough for a casual music-listener like myself. And even if you forget to charge your headphones, the brand claims you can get up to 3 hours of playback time from just a 5 minute charge—something I definitely will be testing out when my battery dies.
