You don’t have to be an audiophile to hear the difference high-quality headphones can make in your music experience. It’s not just about volume: The bass hits harder, the high-end cuts deeper and everything just feels more immediate when you have a great set of cans that can properly articulate all the little details that make your favorite songs special.
If you’ve been craving that texture but haven’t been able to justify spending the kind of money that high-end headphones typically command, this deal on the Beats Solo3 – which are on sale for $160, down from their normal price of $299 – might be what you’ve been waiting for.
The Beats Solo3 is an award-winning over-ear headphone that maximizes clarity, breadth and balance with fine-tuned acoustics. The cushioned ear cups are customizable to fit the ergonomics of your head for comfortable listening all day long, and the Apple W1 proprietary Bluetooth chip makes pairing a snap if you’re already using Apple devices. That said, if you’re more of an Android fan, you’ll be getting the same quality you’re already used to.
One of the most convenient features it offers is Fast Fuel charging, which allows you to pump three hours of playback time into your battery after only five minutes of charging. On a full tank, you’re looking at up to 40 hours of runtime, so you can take these headphones on a long flight or a multi-day camping trip knowing you’ll have full access to all your favorite songs. That means you can dedicate your power bank to devices like your phone or tablet during lengthy excursions.
This Beats Solo3 deal is available in Gold, Rose Gold, Matte Black, and Glossy Black, and you can pick up your own pair now for $160, or nearly half off.
