Beats makes some of the most popular headphones on the planet—and for good reason. Not only are they well-designed and stylish, but they also sound great and offer some terrific features. For a limited time, the Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones are available for $159.99—which is a massive $140 off the normal price of $299.95.
There are plenty of things to like about the Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones. They’re are well-designed, offering a sleek look with easy-to-access controls. The headphones have an on-ear design, meaning that they’re a little more portable than over-ear headphones, and sound better than in-ear headphones. The Solo3 is available in a range of colors, so there should be something there for everyone.
While they’re probably not the best choice for audiophiles, almost everyone else will love them. They offer plenty of bass, though it doesn’t necessarily go over the top. There’s a scooped midrange which helps highlight the bass and the highs, the there’s a good amount of clarity and detail in those highs. Safe to say, the Beats Solo3 wireless headphones are a great option for those that want good-sounding headphones.
The headphones perform pretty well, too. They offer up to a massive 40 hours of battery life, which is absolutely huge, plus they allow you to control Siri straight from the headphones.
If you want something a little bigger, go for the Beats Studio3 Wireless—which are over-ear headphones instead of on-ear headphones. These are a little more expensive than the Solo3 Wireless headphones, and they’re not currently on sale, but you will get a little more oomph—which is always good news. Like the Beats Solo3 Wireless, the Studio3 Wireless headphones are available in a range of colors, and they offer plenty of bass and a solid amount of clarity in the high-end.
If you’re looking for a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, then it’s worth considering the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones, which are considered by many to be the best noise-cancelling headphones out there. While the new headphones are full price, if you’re looking for a great deal you can get refurbished pair for $259—which is a great price for such sleek and great-sounding headphones. The headphones sound awesome, offering a ton of bass, a good midrange, and plenty of detail in the high-end.
