Apple this week launched a new limited time discount on its Beats EP headphones, Beats Pill+ speaker, and urBeats earphones, which are all on sale for approximately $20 to $30 off.
The Beats EP On-Ear Headphones are available for $99, down from the original price of $129.95. All colors are available at the discounted price, including red, white, black, and blue. The Beats EP are Apples most affordable on-ear headphones, coming in at a lower cost than the Solo3 models.
The Beats Pill+ Portable Speaker is available for $199, down from $229.95. All colors are discounted, including white, black, and red.
Both the Beats Pill+ and the Beats EP On-Ear Headphones were discounted by a similar amount in late 2016 and early 2017, but Apple has not recently offered a sale on the urBeats. With the promotion, the earphones are priced at $79 instead of $99.95. All colors available from the Apple Store are included in the sale: silver, gold, space gray, rose gold, black, and ultra violet.
Apple's prices are a decent deal, but similar and occasionally bigger discounts can often be found from retailers like Amazon and Best Buy during routine sales.
According to the promotion details, Apple's sale will last from today until August 26, 2017 at 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time.

Poor Steve - he'd never give the stupid man the reins of Apple had he known... What a mistake!..
Since I depend on Apple products in my business, I budget for them out of the business revenue. I don't replace a product that's working fine just because something new and shiny comes out; but I do budget for new Apple products because I know that like all electronics, they will eventually fail past the point of being realistic to repair. I suspect that many people who depend on Apple products for their business do the same.
Don't forget that Apple Music only exists because of the beats deal. So money made there would be from beats. The speaker and headphone tech Apple is involved in has to be somewhat influenced by the beats deal.
I would argue the beats acquisition has paid for itself and then some.
Apple: Buy 3 devices to run your business offering 3 different user interfaces and apps. Chaching!
Microsoft: Here's 1 device, 1 OS.
Its a simplistic explanation but I appreciate the theoretical VALUE of a surface laptop or phone (via Contiuum) and not having to switch between, and maintain different devices.
