Beats Solo Pro: noise canceling
The Beats Solo Pro are on-ear headphones with noise canceling. This is uncommon, as on-ear headphones don't cover your ear entirely. Over-ear headphones do cover your ears. But despite that, the Beats Solo Pro manages to muffle ambient noise well with this technology. This means you won't have to turn up the volume in the train or at the office when you're bothered by ambient noise.
Beats Solo3: no noise canceling
Since the Beats Solo3 doesn't have noise canceling, you'll still hear ambient noise and white noise. So if you're looking for on-hear headphones which do muffle ambient noise, the Beats Solo Pro is the right choice.

Beats Solo3: W1 chip
Just like the Solo Pro, the Beats Solo3 has a chip which ensures the headphones make a fast connection to all your iCloud devices. The W1 chip is the predecessor of the H1 chip and basically does the same, except the H1 does it better. You have access to Siri with both chips, but you can address the speech assistant by saying 'Hey Siri' with the the H1 chip without having to press a button first.

If you use the noise canceling of the Beats Solo Pro all the time, the battery lasts 22 hours on a full charge. Not using the noise canceling? You can listen to music for 40 hours. If you don't need the noise canceling, it's useful to turn it off. That way, the battery lasts longer.
Beats Solo3: 40 hours

The Beats Solo Pro and the Beats Solo3 are both on-ear headphones which you can pair to an iPhone or other iCloud device quickly. The H1 chip is faster and more energy-efficient than the W1 chip, but the main difference between the 2 headphones is the noise-canceling. If you're looking for on-ear headphones with noise canceling, the Solo Pro is the right choice for you. Don't want noise canceling, but do want a long battery life and make a fast connection with your Apple Device? The Solo3 is the right choice.
