If you’re not that excited about the impending arrival of the Beats Studio Buds… or teeny-tiny true wireless earbuds in general, Amazon might tempt you to pick up the premium on-ear Beats Solo Pro headphones instead.
In other words, you may want to hurry and pull the trigger as soon as possible if you dig the iconic Beats design or you’re simply looking for a nice and relatively affordable pair of on-ear cans with both state-of-the-art active noise cancellation technology and up to 40 hours (!!!) of battery life (with ANC switched off).
Alternatively, you can always go for Apple’s cheaper Beats Solo3 if you don’t mind the older W1 processor under the hood (compared to the H1 powering the Solo Pro), as well as the absence of noise-cancelling functionality.
Typically available for $199.95, this model is marked down by around $61 and $65 in rose gold and black hues respectively at the time of this writing, which… doesn’t make the Solo3 that much more affordable than the Solo Pro.
Finally, if you prefer the over-ear style, you can get Apple’s Beats Studio3 headphones at $130 less than their usual price of $349.95 in a single “Shadow Gray” flavor with up to 40 hours of battery life of its own and top-shelf ANC capabilities.
