IF YOU’RE a constant traveler or city commuter, a pair of wireless headphones can feel like an extra limb, a high-tech attachment that we use throughout the day. That’s why we say a pair of quality cans are worth the splurge. Said splurge: Beats headphones, which have constantly received top marks from our Tech and Gear team for their expansive sound, ample bass, and sharp design. Of course, they don’t come cheap, which is why we’re always on the hunt for great Beats deals.
Enter Amazon, that retailer you may have heard off, which is slashing prices on the Beats Solo 3 (35% off), Powerbeats Pro (24% off), and the Flex Earbuds (43% off) while supplies last.
In our humble opinion, Beats’ suite of headphones go toe-to-toe (or ear-to-ear) with AirPods in terms of sound quality and design. Take the Solo3 over-ear headphones, which our fitness trainers have praised for its effect noise-cancelling feature, and its comfortable fit, making it ideal for using at the gym.
For a more portable pair of headphones, you can’t go wrong with the Powerbeats Pro, which has been lauded by our fitness and gear editors for its secure fit (even moreso than the AirPods pro) and sturdy build without feeling bulky. “You can wear these for everyday use, especially if you’re a fan of the over-ear hook design, but where the Powerbeats Pro shine is when used for fitness purposes,” says Gear Editor John Thompson. “If you’re tired of your earbuds falling short in the gym then a pair of Powerbeats Pros should be added to your gym bag in the near future.”
If affordability is your top priority (and in this economy we can’t blame you), then opt for the Flex Earbuds, a pair of premium earbuds under $50 (!!!) At this price point, you get voice call capabilities, a 12-hour run time, and a sweat-resistant build. In other words, the Flex Earbuds offer a ton of value.
Given Beats’ pedigree as a decent maker of great-sounding headphones, you can’t go wrong with any of these picks. But make sure to snag one before supply runs out.
