Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones by Apple are down to $120 on Amazon, in case you want to make a style statement

Let’s face it: Apple products are popular partly because they are good pieces of technology, and also because Apple does marketing and advertising very well. The Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones are one of those products that are just okay, but are hyped way too much because of the weight of marketing behind it. It’s much more of a fashion statement that serves some function as an aside. If you’re looking to add one to your look, the Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones by Apple are now down to $120 on Amazon, from their usual $200 price tag.

    The Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones by Apple are more form over function, but they definitely make heads turn. If you are looking for an accessory to your style statement, one of the nine color options should suit your taste.

We’ll be honest here: if you are fishing for quality headphones that are more function over form, there are a lot of options around that are much better than the Beats Solo 3. But if you are looking for a pair of headphones that announce your arrival and are much more form over function, the Beats Solo 3 is a solid pick. First, it’s an Apple product with the prominent Beats branding, making them unmistakable for what they are. These headphones also come in a variety of colors on Amazon as part of this sale, unlike the usual three colors present on Apple.com on regular days. And since you can pick one up on sale, the rest of the world needn’t know that you got them at a cool $80 discount.

The Beats Solo 3 feature the Apple W1 chip and are compatible with both iOS and Android devices. You can take calls, control music, and activate Siri on iOS devices with the multi-function on-ear controls. With a promised 40-hour battery life, these headphones can last for a while on your head. Apple also claims that you can charge them up for 5 minutes and get 3 hours of battery playback. The headphones have a foldable design, so they are easier to carry around when you don’t want them out. Keep in mind that these are charged through microUSB, even in 2020, so that’s a negative. Nonetheless, you buy these for the style statement, and with nine color options including the recent “Club Collection”, they get that job done.
