Buy Beats Studio Pro deal: $349 $199

Beats Studio Pro over-ear ANC headphones have a good reputation, but you can often find them for well below list price. Wednesday’s prices at Amazon and Best Buy, at about $150 off, aren’t even the lowest we’ve seen. Even back when the cans had only been out for a few months, we started seeing them for half off.

But even $200 is a good deals on headphones of this caliber. Beats Studio Pro are Beats’ flagship cans. When they came out in July 2023, reviewers likened them to Apple’s $549 AirPods Max. Nobody said the Beats can were as good, but they weren’t too far off. One review from CNET said they’re “almost AirPods Max Lite, but not quite.”

Comparison put these cans in very good company

Here are some interesting comparisons from that review, putting Beats Studio Pro up against Sony’s flagship cans as well as AirPods Max:

I went back and forth with these and Sony WH-1000XM5, and the thing you notice is that these are a more aggressive sounding headphone, which you may or may not like. The highs are a little more sculpted and everything sounds a little more forward, including the mids where voices live. Both the Sony and the AirPods Max are a little more laid back by comparison.

Beats’ top headphones replaced the venerable Beats Studio3 from 2017. My roundup of Beats Studio Pro reviews said this:

“The general consensus among Beats Studio Pro reviewers is that the company decided to keep an iconic design with just a few changes, like softer earcups. But to some it feels a bit cheap, ‘plasticky’ and stale. The big changes inside, however, overhaul the technology and result in excellent headphones with good sound, great active noise cancellation (ANC) and solid appeal to both Apple and Android users.”

Where to buy: Amazon ($199.95) or Best Buy ($199.99)
