They’ve been 199.99 directly from Apple for a while now. I’d spend the extra $0.05 and get them directly from Apple over amazon. Also, never buy AppleCare from Amazon it’s not returnable if you return the Apple product associated.

edit: I was wrong; Apple has them for $199.95 too.

AppleCare IS returnable, but it's better to buy directly from Apple as the Amazon people have no clue how to return it properly.

I retuned a set of Powerbeats Pro right before Christmas and Amazon would not allow me to return the AppleCare+ that I purchased at the same time. Here is a screen shot and highlight of their policy.

Then I guess sticking with Apple is the best option. BTW there was a poster on here that was able to return it, but it was a HUGE hassle. So ridiculous.

With Best Buy price matching Amazon, there's really no reason to order from there.

I’m curious, what is the sales of these Beats. This product seems to be absolutely cannibalised by AirPods Pro, what is the target audience? Gym goers, that anyway use AirPods? Never have them seen in a wild...

My best guess would be:

For those that want better battery life and either don't want or don't like ANC (and thus don't want to pay for it either)...Also the earhook form factor might be desirable to some.

Given where APP are priced, these should be MSRP of $199.99 from Apple direct

(they are on "sale" for that, but should always be that price and then "on sale" for $159-179, etc)

All this overpricing and then "sales". meh. Feels cheap.
Tim is turning Apple into a fancy flea market.

Better and more secure for working out, the ear seal seems to work better (at least for me) then ANS, and for long flights the extra battery life is crucial.

The colour "combination"...
Why both the moss and navy have to get that ugly flesh colour "b"?
Honestly, I would never fret over something so minimal, as I probably care more about the functionality versus the aesthetic over the color of the letter. But that’s just me. I’m not saying you don’t have the option of being picky, but that’s a non-issue from my standpoint.

These things are complete pieces of crap and won’t stay connected to my Apple Watch. They constantly disconnect without warning or notice. They also allow a ton of outside sound to come in.

Returned mine today.
