It’s a great time to pick up a set of these headphones, and many of them will arrive in time for Christmas.
Normally priced at $350, the Beats Studio3 connects to your Apple iPhone or Android smartphone via Bluetooth.

Additionally, this pair has a Fast Fuel feature that gives the Beats Studio3 – which are also sweat and water resistant – three hours of playtime on a quick charge of just 10 minutes (or one hour of use from only five minutes of charging). It’s so fast!
“Never liked the headphones and can’t wear them for long periods of time,” wrote one elated buyer. “I find them uncomfortable and often misplace them. Beats Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones are the most important product I own besides my smartphone. I bought [them] to use on a long flight overseas and they were the smartest purchase I’ve made this season. There is no comparison for sound quality, product features and comfort.”
The Beats Studio Buds are usually $150, but right now they’re only $90 at Amazon. Two modes (Active Noise Canceling and Transparency) make it easy to listen to your favorite tunes no matter what you’re doing, while the IP4X rating means you don’t have to worry about a light downpour or a little sweat that will damage your headphones.
“I bought these six months ago and I love them! They connect easily to my phone and other devices. The sound quality is excellent and I can take a break when I need it,” says a customer exclaimed. This reviewer vouched for their durability. “I accidentally left them in my uniform pocket and they went through the wash. My husband heard a clicking noise in the dryer and when he checked he found them out of the case, bouncing around the dryer. The best thing is that they still work just as good as the day I got them! Thank you for making a phenomenal product!”

Small but mighty, these headphones tick all the boxes. The wingtips make them comfortable enough that you might even forget you’re wearing them.

Over 11,000 rave reviews give them a perfect five-star rating, and many draw comparisons to the AirPods Pros.
“Right out of the box, they completely blow the AirPods Pro out of the water,” wrote one satisfied buyer. “Everything the AirPods do, these do better, minus the wireless charging. The sound quality and battery life are definitely worth the sacrifice of wireless charging. The drastic difference in charging time battery life and sound quality on these things is on such a vast scale of improvement that I don’t care about wireless charging Beats are Apple too but the difference between them is mind blowing If you want to hear and feel the beat, get the Beats Fit Pro. I don’t get paid to tell you that. It’s my personal experience and opinion.”

These brought music to the ears of over 30,000 five-star fans.
“I use them all day, every day at work,” wrote one rave reviewer. “They’re great and I can easily pull them out and have them slung around my neck when I need to talk to my colleagues. The long battery life means I can use them all day at work and have still enough battery to walk the dog whenever I’m home I like the ease of use and the fact that they stay out of my way while I do what I need to do throughout the day No complaints about the sound quality either.
