Whether you want earbuds with a splash of color that AirPods simply don’t provide or prefer a more secure design, it’s time to consider Beats. Yes, the classic brand that used to have “By Dre” is just as cool, iconic, and impressive as ever.
Our friends at TheStreet just reviewed the Studio Buds+—the successor to the fastest-selling earbuds from Beats ever, the Studio Buds—and found them to offer a boatload of features. Still, most importantly, they equalize features across Apple and Android devices.
However, as we head into the weekend, Amazon is taking up to 36% off popular Beats earbuds, including the Studio Buds, Powerbeats Pro, Fit Pro, and Flex.

Beats Studio Buds ($99.95, originally $149.95 at Amazon)
While Beats did just release an upgraded version, Studio Buds still pack a tremendous value. That grows even higher when you consider the additional 33% off that Amazon is offering right now. These compact earbuds come in six fun colors, including a spicy ocean blue, lasting up to 8 hours of playback. In classic Beats fashion, the audio mix is vibrant with strong low and mid tones. Safe to say, Studio Buds pack the bass.
Best of all, though, these will fast pair with an Android or an iOS smartphone with many features across both. Additionally, if you are looking for a pair to work out in, these are IPX4 rated against sweat and water.
Beats Powerbeats Pro ($159.95, originally $249.95 at Amazon)
Yes, Powerbeats Pro live in a giant carrying case, but with 9 hours of playback, you don’t need to worry about recharges. If you’re a runner or after a secure fit, Powerbeats Pro delivers that with an ear-hook design. In fact, these are the last earbuds in the Beats line to feature that.
They offer an excellent fit, and there is really no chance of these falling. Powerbeats Pro also features a sealed design to protect against sweat and water, plus Apple’s H1 chip powers them for strong connectivity with iPhones. At $159.95 on Amazon right now, they’re $90 off and eligible for free Prime shipping.
Beats Fit Pro ($159.95, originally $199.95 at Amazon)
The most impressive earbuds in the Beats family are the Fit Pro, and they’re back down to an all-time low price on Amazon in all six shades. Fit Pro offers a comfortable yet better seal in your ear than the Studio Buds or competing earbuds, thanks to a wing tip. You can expect upwards of six hours of playback with a listening mode like active noise cancellation or transparency enabled.
The Apple-made H1 chip powers these, so there is stable connectivity and quick syncing with the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch. Via the Beats app for Android, you also get some parity in the feature set. Like the Studio Buds, these are sweat and water-resistant up to the IPX4-spec.
Beats Flex ($29.99, originally $69.95 at Amazon)
If you’re alright with a cord, well, in this case, a thin neckband, the Beats Flex earbuds are with a look. They’re a whopping 57% off at just $29.99 and are classic Bluetooth earbuds powered by Apple’s W1 chip.
One epic feature is an impressive 12 hours of battery life and physical controls on the cord for playback controls. Also, when they’re not in your ears, they can be worn around your neck like a necklace, as the earbuds magnetically hold together.
