I suspect a normal price reduction for students would be more helpful.

Why they don't just have a cut the price promo instead? Overstock on the beats to get rid of?

Because why would they discount their machines by another 300$ when they can give you headphones for the fraction of the cost to them? Why wouldn’t they push their own brand to make others then buy those same headphones??
You do realize apple owns beats headphones?

Nope. Students fundamentally spend other people's money: parents, loans, scholarship... They don't benefit directly from a price drop, but they benefit from free stuff.
