Apart from the AirPods-eclipsing Powerbeats Pro
, Apple hasn't unveiled any new Beats-branded products in quite some time, so it's really no wonder that 2016's Solo3 wireless headphones
are discounted more often than they're not nowadays. We're talking pretty hefty price cuts too, generally ranging from $120
to $150 taken off the $300 MSRP
Believe it or not, you can save even more than 50 percent at the time of this writing at Best Buy on a whole bunch of paint jobs with absolutely no strings attached. These are brand-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged items available here in exchange for $129.99 in your choice of black, gloss black, "defiant" black-red, gold, satin gold, rose gold, red, silver, satin silver, and gloss white colors.
Technically listed as part of Best Buy's "Student Deals" program, the promotion doesn't appear to require a special account or membership, let alone a fee of any sort. Sold alongside a standard 1-year manufacturer's warranty, Apple's Beats Solo3 wireless headphones can be bundled with extended AppleCare+
coverage right at this trusted third-party retailer for just 29 extra bucks or a monthly fee of $1.21.
While not exactly on par with the likes of the Sony WH-1000XM3
or Bose QuietComfort 35 II
in terms of noise cancellation and audio quality, the Solo3 are marketed as capable of lasting a whopping 40 hours on a single charge, squeezing no less than 3 hours of playback after spending just 5 minutes fueling up.
Other key selling points include a sleek and "streamlined" design, the "award-winning" sound you've "come to love from Beats", and multifunction on-ear controls to quickly activate Siri, take calls, or navigate your music. That might not be enough to justify a cost of $300 or even $200, but it's a pretty robust list of features for 130 bucks.
