TL;DR: The punchy Beats Solo3 wireless headphones are on sale for $149.95 in four colors at Amazon — an incredible 50% savings.
Many of us can barely remember life pre-Lizzo, Lil Nas X, or Megan Thee Stallion. Thanks to their absolutely takeover of 2019, there’s never a shitty mood you can’t pull yourself out of.
But maybe you’re more into throwing it back and pretending that Led Zeppelin was still a band.
There are officially less than 100 days until Christmas — maybe you’ve just been waiting to stream that jazzy holiday playlist like nobody’s business.
Regardless of preferences, we all deserve to enjoy our tunes in a way that’s more immersive than the EarPods that come with iPhones. The Beats Solo3 have Apple’s W1 chip and are ideal to pair with an iPhone, and they’re a whole 50% off at Amazon.
Pairing is one of the few downsides to Bluetooth headphones. The Beats collection are the only non-AirPods headphones to use Apple’s W1 (wireless) chip to link seamlessly with the iPhone 7 and up. Instead of messing with a Bluetooth menu, the W1 chip just knows what to do, and extends Bluetooth range from the regular 30 feet to 100 feet.
Beats’ signature sound is punchy, electric, and great for fans of bass or upbeat music with their coffee in the morning. But where the Solo3s specifically stand out is in their class-leading battery life: These will get you up to 40 hours versus the Studio3’s 27 hours. (This is because they don’t use active noise cancellation, which is a mega battery sucker.)
Regularly $299.95, you can save $149.96 and snag the gloss black, gloss white, matte black, or gold model for $149.99.
