Best Buy seems to be very keen to get shot of its, no-doubt plentiful, stocks of Beats by Dr Dre Solo 3 Wireless headphones. They've now had the whole range at half price or better all week, but we have good reason to suspect this deal may end tomorrow…
The good news here for haters of 'satin silver' is that almost the entire Solo 3 range is discounted in this sale although not by quite as much. The black matt and gloss editions are down to $149.99, for instance, while two-tone editions such as the Defiant black and red are down to $144.99. In fact the only version of the Solo3 that isn't discounted is the one with Mickey Mouse on. Sorry about that.
Solo 3 Wireless maintains the premium, stylish look and up-front audio of the Solo range that originally helped to put Beats headphones on the map. As well as the iconic sound, shape and fit, Solo 3 Wireless now features wireless connectivity, quick pairing, long battery life, rapid charging and it's currently on sale with a price that's just dropped like an exceedingly heavy bass drop.
Needless to say, Amazon also has deals on Beats by Dr Dre Solo3 Wireless, but none of them are quite as cheap as what Best Buy is offering today. We know from statistical analysis that Beats by Dr Dre headphones sell like the Wolf of Wall Street when those sweet Black Friday deals come around. But with these deals, why wait?
Beats Solo 3 Wireless from $130 | Was $300 | Save $170 at Best Buy
The flagship Beats headphones, at least in terms of iconic looks, these over-ears are up to $130 off today, with the biggest discount being on this fetching ‘Satin Silver’ finish. However on the same landing page you'll find that practically all the Beats Solo3 Wireless range has been discounted by Best Buy, so don't fear that you're stuck with Satin Silver. It's unlikely these prices will last.
Why you should buy Beats by Dr Dre Solo3 Wireless
Their cool styling, Siri control and comfy, noise-blocking fit make the Solo3 Wireless a great deal at this price. The 40 hours (!) of battery life is exceptional, while Fast Fuel recharging means a 5-minute charge gives 3 hours of play. The sound is upfront and pumping, as you would expect from Beats headphones.
If they do start to run low on juice, a five-minute charge provides three hours of playback so that sweet bass never has to end.
There's no noise cancelling on these headphones, but they do feature dual mics so you can take calls. On-ear controls let you play music, adjust the volume and activate Siri on the move. Apple iOS users get the benefit of faster wireless pairing but the standard Bluetooth pairing they use on Android devices is hardly slow. Connectivity is rock solid.
