Not to be dramatic, but the chokehold that over-the-ear headphones have had on society this past year should be studied. Somehow, the headphones I made fun of my gamer brother for wearing became one of 2023’s hottest accessories, and the trend is showing no signs of slowing down. Thank goodness for that because Amazon just marked down the coveted Beats headphones for the Prime Big Deal Days happening today and ending tomorrow, October 11, and I rounded them up all right here. You can thank me (but mostly Amazon) later.
Although Amazon has a crazy amount of over-the-ear headphones, you really can’t beat the quality and longevity of Beats Studio Pros. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been putting off getting a pair, but now that they’re on sale, consider this your sign to treat yourself (you deserve it). Beats Studio Pros were originally $350, but now you can get them at 49 percent off for $179.99! This is the moment your budget has been waiting for, folks.
Not only do the new Beats Studio Pros look super sleek with all your trendy fall outfits, but they also take music listening to a whole other level. If you thought your convenience store headphones (guilty as charged) were getting the job done, just wait until you hear the crystal clear, immersive sound quality that these offer.
The surround sound is like being surrounded by 64 speakers at once. While the headphones deliver a noise-canceling mode, rest assured there’s also a new transparency mode that lets the sounds of your environment mix seamlessly with your music so you can stay present and aware—because safety first. The on-device controls make taking calls, controlling your podcasts, and toggling through listening modes super easy. With up to 40 hours of listening time, Beats also made sure to upgrade the over-ear cushions for all-day comfort.
Did I mention that the Beats Studio Pros offer a “Find My” setting for Apple and Android devices when you inevitably leave them sitting somewhere they’re not supposed to be? They just know us so well.
