If you were hoping to hop on a Black Friday AirPods deal this year but haven’t found the right one just yet, make sure you’re not sleeping on the excellent Beats deals going on right now. Owned by Apple, Beats products offer a lot of the same smart features that make AirPods great and there’s a lot more variety when it comes to shape, size, and colour.
Pricing on Beats products also tends to fluctuate a bit more with some steep drops around big sales like Black Friday. That’s exactly what we’re seeing in the UK right now with Amazon taking as much as 52% off regular prices. With headphones and earbuds from just £95, these deals are hard to pass up.
Rock out with Beats Studio Buds at a $50 Black Friday discount
Beats offer great sound quality and are perfect for exercising or working out, and thanks to the H1 and W1 chips they offer speedy connectivity with all your Apple devices for a seamless listening experience.
Apple’s Beats Solo3 offer high-performance audio and comfort thanks to their cool design and Bluetooth connectivity. Apple’s W1 chip makes connectivity a doddle. Stellar battery life comes by way of 40 hours of listening, and Fast Fuel technology nets you three hours of listening time from just five minutes of charging.
Apple’s PowerBeats Pro come with even better connectivity thanks to the H1 chip. If you’re choosing between the two, battery life is more limited but some may prefer the in-ear design and smaller form factor. They also have sweat resistance and the styling makes them a little more conducide to exercise, if that’s what you need them for. Frankly, we love both and they scored well in our reviews.
Released in June, the Beats Studio Buds were the first Beats branded in-ear headphones to go up directly against the AirPods Pro. They feature USB-C charging, a choice of colors, up to 8 hours of battery life, and a solid starting price considering they offer active noise cancellation and transparency modes.
