The Beats Solo Pro wireless on-ear headphones, initially priced at $299.95, are currently on sale for $229.95 on Amazon and $229.99 on Best Buy. This is $20 less than the device’s best deal that we’ve seen, and $70 less than its original price at launch. The firm’s latest model matches flagship models by competitors Sony and Bose in terms of battery life and build quality.
These are the firm’s first on-ear headphones to feature acoustic noise cancellation (ANC), which helps block out external noise while listening. They also have a Transparency mode, which lets users hear some of the surrounding sounds if they need to for any reason. The headset comes with one beamforming microphone on each earcup and uses an accelerometer for improved speech recognition. This makes triggering the Hey Siri voice activation keyword convenient.
The headphones promise up to 22 hours of listening time, which can be increased up to 40 hours if both ANC and Transparency are turned off. As these charge via Lighting port, those entrenched in Apple’s world are seemingly more primed to buy them, but they’re compatible with all Bluetooth devices. They’re available in six colors: Black, Ivory, Gray, Dark Blue, Light Blue, and Red.
