If you’ve been wanting to get some Beats headphones on your ears, there may be no better time to buy them from Apple than now.

The online Apple store rarely offers discounts on the company’s own products, but this morning Apple launched a new promo on select Beats headphones and speakers, dropping prices on some items by as much as 50 bucks.

Apple hasn’t said how long its promo will last, but it almost looks like its trying to clean out inventory on some of the low-end Beats products.

Here are the deals you can get:

Beats Pill+ Portable Speaker — $199.95 (originally $229.95)
Beats EP On-Ear Headphones — $99.95 (originally $129.95)
Beats Solo2 On-Ear Headphones — $149.95 (originally $199.95)

The Beats headphones that are discounted aren’t the latest and greatest so that could by why they’re on sale. Apple debuted new Beats headphones last year that use the company’s new W1 Bluetooth chip for better wireless connections.
