It’s not often that Apple marks down its hardware — including anything under its Beats brand. But it surprised everyone this week, by discounting the Beats Powerbeats Pro true wireless earbuds on Amazon. For a limited time, they’re 20% off.
See it now:
The headphones now cost $199.95, down from their usual $249.99. We price-checked them, and this is the best price we’ve spotted so far on the Powerbeats Pro, which originally debuted last spring. They feature Apple’s H1 wireless chip, hands-free “Hey Siri” voice functionality, the ability to switch between paired Apple devices, and Lightning charging.
We reviewed them in May and found them to be the antithesis of Apple’s $199 AirPods: The AirPods forgo buttons for touch controls, while the Powerbeats Pro has three buttons; the AirPods are one size, while the Powerbeats Pro have interchangeable tips and are adjustable; the AirPods weren’t designed for athletes, while Powerbeats Pro were made with fitness buffs in mind; and the AirPods are minimalistic, while the Powerbeats Pro aren’t as much.
If any of that interests you, all four colors of the PowerBeats Pro are now on sale at Amazon — no promo required.
