As with the previous BeatsX earphones, the new Beats Flex are wireless Bluetooth earphones with a cord between the two earpieces that drapes around the neck and provides access to some physical controls. Beats Flex feature a lightweight and comfortable Flex-Form cable made of durable Nitinol to connect the earpieces, and the earpieces magnetically click together to keep them secure around your neck when not in use.

A few deals remain on the Powerbeats Pro as well, with the spring yellow Powerbeats Pro on sale for $159.99, down from $249.95. If you're on the hunt for more discounts, be sure to visit our Apple Deals roundup where we recap the best Apple-related bargains of the past week.

I have had a pair since launch. The inline mic is possibly the worst mic I've ever used. Utter garbage. I listen to mostly podcasts so audio-wise these work pretty well. They are a big step back from the old $150 version, but at $50 (or $40 in this case) they are a no brainer for a basic pair of wireless W1 headphones.

Battery life is tremendous though, lasts all day easily.

These sound so bad. They're not worth $5.
You serious? They're not as good as airpod pro, but significantly better sound quality than regular airpods.

That why they price it way higher and then discount them, for thrift shoppers who buy it for the bargain price not sound quality. I never buy earbuds that are less then $200 now! I no sucker anymore. I stay away from Beats too.
I like the total wireless earbuds like Bose Pros and Sony ones. Pricey but great sound and has bass!
