Apple Discounts Beats Pill+ Speaker and Beats EP Headphones

Amid a significant delay of its newest BeatsX headphones, Apple is offering a discount on two other Beats products, the Beats Pill+ Speaker and the Beats EP On-Ear Headphones.

The Beats Pill+ Portable Speaker, which comes in White, Red, and Black, is available for $199, a discount of $30 off the regular $230 price tag. Apple's Beats EP On-Ear Headphones are also discounted by $30, dropping the price from $130 to $100. The Beats EPs are available in Blue, White, Black, and Red.

Apple's discount is rather unimpressive, as several third-party retailers regularly offer the Beats Pill+ and the Beats EP at that price point or lower. Amazon, for example, has the Beats Pill+ for $200, and Walmart and Best Buy both sell the Beats EP for $100.

Rumors earlier this week suggested Apple's BeatsX wireless headphones, introduced in October, would not ship out for two to three months. Apple confirmed rumors this morning with a website update that lists a February release date for the new earphones.

Originally meant to ship in the fall of 2016, the $149 wireless BeatsX headphones feature the same Apple W1 chip used in the AirPods, which also saw delays. Apple planned to ship AirPods in October, but needed "a little more time" before releasing them.

AirPods finally became available for purchase this morning with delivery dates as soon as next week, but limited supplies caused them to quickly sell out. AirPods purchased now will not ship out to customers until mid-January.

Please to explain why people still buy $150-$200 bluetooth portable speakers when you can buy great sounding bluetooth speakers for around $20 now at nearly any store.

I don't disagree they're overpriced, but please point me to ANY "great sounding" speakers for 20 bucks.

I thought it was the overly negative and/or toxic comments on every article.

For the price of a pill you could have the much better sonos. And now those are discounted to $149 - or they were a week ago when I ordered two more for the house.

I own several HMDX speakers and love em! Sound great!

Our definition of "great" is different then.

Yes, because apparently some people are rejecting the red pill. Some say these people have been taking blue pills all their adulthood, hence the rejection.

Yep. Both are overpriced, but Apple should terminate these cash grabs and start making real speaker systems.
