Beats Solo 3: Wireless headphones still cheaper than EVER this Black Friday

Pick up these foldable Beats headphones for their lowest-ever price at Amazon

The Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones are incredibly popular and really quite expensive, which is why we’re always shocked to see a discount of this size – even in the midst of the Black Friday weekend sales. Right now at Amazon, the Beats Solo 3 are going for a ridiculously low price of £125; whether you’re a Beats fanatic or a newcomer in dire need of a pair of high-quality headphones, this particular offer is making the choice easy.

Not only is this new price £55 cheaper than the normal retail price of £180, but it’s also the cheapest a pair of Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones have ever been (certainly at Amazon, and quite possibly elsewhere too). It’s hard to find a new adjective to describe this deal so we’re going to stick with a classic: it’s incredible.

It’s not just about that massive price drop, either. The Beats Solo 3 also happen to be a great pair of headphones. We gave them four stars and a Recommended award when we reviewed them, praising the improvements facilitated by Apple’s W1 chip. 

“The argument used to be that you’re paying for fashion,” our head of reviews Jon Bray wrote in his review, “but with the Solo 3 you’re paying for a lot more than that. You’re also getting great battery life and the exclusivity and ease-of-use of Apple’s new wireless audio technology.”

The battery life in question is a very impressive 40 hours of playback, with five minutes of Fast Fuel charging giving you three hours of juice. Pairing, meanwhile, is as simple as holding the headphones near to your phone, if you have an Apple device. Combine these flashy new features with the same good looks and stellar audio as their predecessors and it’s easy to see why we rate the Beats Solo 3 so highly.

At their original asking price of £250, the Solo 3 were simply too expensive. At £125, however, they’re a must-have.

If you’re not set on fire by this Beats offer, we’ve got an alternative for you. The Beats Solo Pro are ALSO cheaper than ever right now: you can nab a pair at Amazon for just £159, down by a whopping £110 from £269. 

They’re absolutely worth the extra cash: they got five stars AND a Best Buy award from us, with praise being directed at everything from the impeccable active noise cancellation to the sublime sound. If you fancy treating yourself, this is the way to do it.
