Apple this week is offering a limited time discount on its lineup of Beats headphones in the United States, dropping the price of the BeatsX Earphones, the Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones, and Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones.

Apple has offered these discounts several times in the past, and the lower prices are often available for a short period of time.

The BeatsX Earphones are available for $119.95, down from the regular price of $149.95. All colors are available at the reduced price.

Apple's Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones, designed for use with workouts, are available for $159.95, down from the regular price of $199.95. Apple offers both standard and Neighborhood Powerbeats3 collections, with both available at a discount.

The Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones are available for $239.95, down from the regular price of $299.95. Apple also offers these in standard and Neighborhood collections, with both discounted.

BeatsX, Powerbeats 3, and Beats Solo3 Wireless all include an Apple-designed W1 chip much like the AirPods, which means you can easily switch connectivity between different Mac and iOS devices.

All three accessories are also wireless and connect to your devices over Bluetooth, so they work with iPhones that do not have a headphone jack.

While Apple's prices are an okay deal, these headphones and earphones are also often discounted by third-party retailers. B&H Photo, for example, has some Beats Solo3 Wireless models available for $219.99, a $60 discount that beats Apple's discount. Not all colors are included, however.

Best Buy is offering the BeatsX for $99.99 this week, a price that also beats Apple's discount.

I just got a pair of BeatsX on Amazon for $89, about 2 weeks ago. Is it just me or do these headphones sound tinny? I had a pair of Bose SoundSport wireless before (lost them!) so I figured I would try these, at a good price. I am not so happy with the sound. Is there a way to adjust bass/treble/mid, etc. for these things?
Absolutely not you. I have Airpods and used to have BeatsX. Just thought it woul be nice to have both for different scenarios. Wow was I wrong. The Beats X were terrible. I don’t know how they got such high reviews. Im not an audiophile or anything and I even had other people test them and Apple replace them. BeatsX just sound BAD.

I thought they sounded terrible too. Sent them back. I also wasn't a big fan of the cord, as it was too big for my head.

I really want a pair of AirPods with silicon tips that sound as good as my $50 Carbo Tenores. IDK what I'm going to when I inevitably upgrade to an iPhone without a headphone jack. Thanks for your "courage," Apple.

Unfortunately no, it sounds exactly as you describe and I have adjusted the preset equalizer from my iPhone to find a better sounding output, still sounds with ZERO bass.
