What you need to know

  • Apple has launched a promotion on a number of its Beats headphones.
  • The Beats Flex are back at their original price of $49 as a "special offer."
  • The promotion also offers savings on the Beats Studio Buds, and Powerbeats Pro headphones.

Now is the time to grab those Flex while the price is back to normal.

Today, Apple has launched a "special offer" on a number of its Beats headphones.

The sales promotion, which Apple dubs as a "special offer," offers customers savings of up to $50 on some of the brand's most popular earbuds. The Beats Flex, Beats Studio Buds, and Powerbeats Pro headphones are all part of the promotion.

The price of each earbud and the savings are as follows:

  • Beats Flex: $49 (savings of $20)
  • Beats Studio Buds: $129.99 (savings of $20)
  • Powerbeats Pro: $199.95 (savings of $50)

While the Beats Studio Buds and Powerbeats Pro savings are a nice-to-see from Apple, there are also plenty of places to grab even deeper savings like third-party retailers.

The one that stands out as an oddity the most is the Beats Flex, which are positioned as a "special offer" with a price of $49. The headphones had actually been selling for $49 in the United States since their release in 2020 but suddenly experienced a price hike to $69 back in September.

Despite the price fluctuation, the Beats Flex are still the most affordable and one of the best values you can get for headphones with Apple tech stuffed inside.

Bottom line: Though the sound quality leaves much to be desired, these $50 headphones give you all the convenience of Apple headphones that are $200 more expensive.
