Apple's Old Beats Solo3 Headphones Available in Gold and Silver Again

Apple this week began selling the seven-year-old Beats Solo3 wireless on-ear headphones in Gold and Silver color options again for $199.95 on its online store. The headphones also remain available in Black, Rose Gold, and (PRODUCT)RED.

Beats Solo3 Gold
Apple previously offered the Beats Solo3 in Satin Gold and Satin Silver, but the colors had been discontinued in late 2020.

Released in 2016, the Beats Solo3 are now very old headphones with outdated technologies, such as micro-USB charging and Bluetooth 4.0, but they do have a W1 chip for quick and easy pairing with Apple devices. The headphones are more affordable than the new Beats Studio Pro, which are regularly priced at $349.95.

It's unclear how long Apple will continue to sell the Solo3, so keep in mind that the headphones could be discontinued sooner rather than later.

I was about to say as long as the sound quality, battery life, comfort etc was still reasonable, then go for it.

However: "micro-USB charging" = NOPE

Why would you buy this for $200 when you can get the (better) Sony WH-1000XM4 for $200-$250?
