Forget about the AirPods Studio and get Apple's Beats Solo Pro at an excellent discount right now
Yes, the AirPods Studio sound a lot fancier than the on-ear Beats Solo Pro, but the latter cans, commercially released just last year, are also not bad for their $299.95 list price. Said MSRP is currently lowered by a whopping 100 bucks at a host of major US retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo Video.
The "catch" is you need to choose one of three colors to score that massive discount, whichever of the three aforementioned vendors you'd like to do business with, while the other three hues are curiously enough still listed at their regular prices nationwide. We're talking dark blue, light blue, and red flavors available at $100 off list a pair, with black, grey, and ivory versions up for grabs for the same old three Benjamins.
In case you're wondering, the over-ear AirPods Studio are widely rumored to start at around $350 in an attempt to challenge Sony's recently unveiled WH-1000XM4. For $150 less than that, you're looking at getting a pair of sleek and relatively comfortable on-ears with state-of-the-art active noise cancellation technology, Transparency functionality for staying aware of your surroundings while listening to music, and yes, a solid battery life of up to 22 hours of actual playing time between charges.
While nowhere near as attractive, a separate Amazon deal lets you shave a decent $41 off the already reasonable $200 list price of the slightly lower-end on-ear Beats Solo 3 headphones with up to 40 hours of battery life but no active noise cancellation functionality.
