The new Beats Solo3 headphones are great, and Apple’s W1 chip makes pairing them to an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus a breeze. Of course, once you pair your headphones once, the W1 chip loses much of its luster and you’re left with a pair of very expensive wireless headphones that aren’t so great in terms of value.

If you’re looking for an alternative that won’t break the bank, definitely take a look at the Ghostek soDrop 2 Over-Ear Headphones with Noise Reduction. These headphones look even more stylish and original than Beats, and they sound better as well. Just look at the reviews on Amazon — the soDrop 2 have managed a 4.7-star rating with more than 500 reviews. That’s no easy feat for any product, let alone something as potentially polarizing as headphones.

Here are some key points from the product page:

  • HD Crystal Clear Sound, Let the Beat Drop Full Volume Blast with These Bass Sensitive Headphones from Ghostek®
