Best Amazon Prime Day Beats Headphones deals – don't forget about Dre

The world's most popular cans are always in big demand on Amazon Prime Day

TODO alt text

It's Monday July 16 and Amazon Prime Day 2018 is underway. We know from long experience that Beats by Dr Dre headphones are always in demand today – you could almost call it 'Dre Day' (that's a joke for the old-school hip-hop heads, there).

This year, it's fair to say Spotlight deals on Beats by Dre headphones are in short supply, at least so far, but you can get Beats by Dr Dre Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones in Black for almost £100 off their original RRP. Boo-yakah!

Beats by Dr. Dre Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones

Possibly the most iconic of the Beats by Dre cans, the Solo series has graced millions of ears over the years. Solo3 is the most recent incarnation, and gives the peeps what they want, ie: lots of bass, and cool, urban styling.

Please note that only the black Solo3 is included in this deal although there are lesser discounts on the other 11 colours in the range.

With up to 40 hours of battery life, and fast charging ("Fast Fuel" charging gives you 3 hours of play from just 5 minutes of charging), the Solo3 will keep you rocking it, wirelessly ( via Class 1 Bluetooth) all day. And all night. And quite some way into tomorrow, too. The buttons let you take calls, control music and activate Siri on iOS devices. The iconic cans are easily adjustable and highly comfy, and can be folded up for extra portabiliity. The weight is just 215g. The sonics are geared towards rock, dance and hip-hop sounds but Beats headphones aren't as cavernously bass-heavy as they used to be. At this price, they are a D-E-A-L.View Deal

This is actually a good example of how Beats headphones pricing works. At the rrp, we would say "Noooo! Do not consider buying these, you can get much better in-ear buds for 130 quid. However by knocking £60 off we end up with perfectly good value Bluetooth headphones with Siri compatibility and 8 hours of battery life.View Deal
