Beats’s $350 Noise-Canceling Headphones Are Cheaper Than Ever
Feb. 13, 2020
The Studio3 Wireless are Beats’s flagship over-ear noise-canceling headphones, and right now you can buy a pair in numerous finishes for wicked cheap. The normally $350 headphones are selling on Amazon for $263. It’s the cheapest that these headphones have ever been.
The Studio3 Wireless were released in late 2017 and they are particularly good headphones for iPhone owners. Each pair is integrated with Apple’s W1 chip (the predecessor of the H1 chip that’s now in the AirPods Pro) that helps them quickly pair with an iPhone, Mac or iPad. They’re also integrated with Pure Adaptive Noise Canceling (Pure ANC) technology, which adjusts the noise cancellation depending on the environment you’re listening in (whether that’s a quiet room or a noise-y office) so that the music sounds its best.
The downside of the Studio3 Wireless is that each pair is a few years old, and Beats has since released the Solo Pro , which are the company’s first-ever pair of on-ear active noise-canceling headphones. The Solo Pro are nice because they charge via Lightning, while the Studio3 Wireless still charge via micro-USB. Plus they are a little cheaper.
