    Apple has discounted its BeatsX, Solo3 Wireless, and Powerbeats3 Wireless headphones by $30 to $60 for a limited time in the United States.

    BeatsX -- regular $149.95, now $119.95
    Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless -- regular $199.95, now $159.95
    Beats Solo3 Wireless -- regular $299.95, now $239.95Apple's discount on Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones also applies to the newer "Neighborhood Collection" colors.

    Apple's deals match those frequently offered by authorized resellers like B&H Photo Video, which has BeatsX and Solo3 Wireless on sale for the same prices, but even lower prices can be found on Amazon for select colors.
    BeatsX -- regular $149.95, now $109
    Powerbeats3 Wireless -- regular $199.95, now $134
    Solo3 Wireless -- regular $299.95, now $219.99
    Like AirPods, the BeatsX, Solo3 Wireless, and Powerbeats3 Wireless are equipped with Apple's W1 chip for instant pairing with an iPhone. They can then simultaneously connect to an Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac via iCloud.

    All three headphones feature Fast Fuel. Five minutes of charging provides up to three hours of playback for the Solo3 Wireless, two hours of playback for the BeatsX, and an hour of playback for the Powerbeats3 Wireless.

    Apple's special Beats prices are available in the United States only for a limited time.

    Cool. Apple, now extend this to your Mac lineup from time to time!

    We would be thrilled...

    I wonder if this means we’ll be seeing new additions soon...

    I’m a fan of the BeatsX.

    I got Powerbeats3 with a new Mac. Very nice and replaced in ear ones that fell out with running - they stay in place great. However, my wife got a pair that look almost identical for $40 on amazon and they are great. Beats have been nice (the quick charging is very useful) but I think there are still quite a premium.

    Some of the BeatsX headphones are $89 at Best Buy right now. The price depends on the color. I'm tempted to get a pair, though they get mixed reviews for running.

    I bought BeatsX new in April of last year for $119 on Amazon. I have seen it discounted down to $94.99 new on Amazon in latter part of 2017. Apple is late to the party...

    Decent discounts but other retailers usually have better deals

    Not really. As the article itself and other members have mentioned, these can be had at better pricing. Direct from Apple is always my choice of last resort. Pricing is almost always better elsewhere.

    Don't forget the iPod Touch! The W1 chips and their instant iCloud pairing are perfectly compatible with the iPod Touch.

    They are great for the gym. In my opinion, a superior fit to PowerBeats.

    T-Mobile has the same discounts. Bonus is you can finance them at zero interest and just pay taxes up front. They also have the JBL Pulse 3 for $30 off.

    I can only compare to Bose QC35, but in my usage they handle voice calls OK, no complaints from me.

    The only decent wireless headphones Apple makes are the Airpods. Why the Beats wireless models are such junk I just don't get. As for registering the Beats headphones at the beatsbydre.com website, don't bother. This doesn't do anything for you as far as processing the warranty on them.
