If you’ve been in the market for a pair of wireless headphones and you’re intrigued by Apple’s W1 chip, which gives you easy pairing, incredible battery life, and super-long range, then today is your lucky day. Why? Because all three Beats wireless headphones with the W1 chip are cheaper than ever.
$130 ($70 Off) PowerBeats3
What the PowerBeats3 can do is nothing short of amazing thanks to Apple’s W1 Chip. Compared to the PowerBeats2, these headphones, which look nearly identical provide up to 12 hours of playback on a single charge. That’s double of what was offered on the PowerBeats2, and is more battery than almost any other wireless workout headphones on the market.
Just like the AirPods, pairing them is extremely easy when using an iOS device such as an iPhone. Simply power the PowerBeats3 on and hold it near your iPhone, hit the “Connect” button that pops up and boom, you’re done. Once you’ve done that, all your other iCloud connected devices are already paired so switching is super easy.
There’s a cool feature called “Fast Fuel” which provides up to 1 hour of audio playback with a quick, 5-minute charge. The built-in mic also allows users to take calls, converse with Siri, and adjust volume.
Normally priced for $199, you can grab them for just $130.
$160 ($140 Off) Beats Solo3
During Apple’s event in September, where it introduced the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the company announced the W1, a new proprietary chip much like the A10 in the iPhone or S2 in the Apple Watch. The aims of the W1 are easy pairing with your iOS and macOS devices, strong audio, and great battery life to wireless headphones.
While the company touted this chip on its truly wireless AirPods, they also decided to put it in a few other headphones including the BeatsX, an in-ear earbud aimed for exercise, and the Beats Solo3, an on-ear headphone aim at delivering incredible sound. In fact, we love these so much, we’ve put them in a few of our curated Gift Guides.
Normally priced at $299, you can grab these today for just $160. A crazy good deal.
$120 ($30 Off) BeatsX
The BeatsX earbuds are the third pair of headphones offered by Apple that use the companies proprietary W1 chip. The other two headphones are the Beats Studio3, which we call the best headphones for iOS users, and of course, the truly wireless AirPods.
If you’ve been thinking about grabbing a pair of wireless earphones and the AirPods are not something you fancy, the BeatsX are a fantastic alternative. You get all the benefits of the W1 chip including easy pairing, incredible range and super-long battery life all in a form factor that is more traditional and offers controls right on the wire.
Normally priced at $150, you can grab these headphones for just $120.
