It’s hard to deny the impact Beats headphones have had on the headphone industry.
When they launched amidst a flurry of clever marketing and celebrity endorsement, their design was bold and their sound was similar – offering bags of bass. Since being acquired by Apple, the Beats sound has matured, delivering a fun and upfront sound, as well as lots of clever tech, such as the Apple W1 and H1 Bluetooth chips, which means they work seamlessly with iPhones.
The Black Friday sales have already started and we are seeing a handful of fantastic Beats Black Friday deals. Prices have been slashed on models including the Beats Solo 3 Wireless, Powerbeats Pro and Beats X.

Beats Powerbeats Pro
We admire the Powerbeats Pro headphones for their build, their fit and their superb features. Thanks to the Apple H1 Bluetooth chip technology, they’re wonderfully easy to set up and use, and they’re virtually glitch-free in their delivery of wireless audio.
In terms of practicality, the Powerbeats Pros are an excellent set of headphones, they just can't quite match the very best in terms of sound. But if you can find a really good deal on Black Friday, it might be tempting.

Like the Powerbeats Pro mentioned above, the Beats X are aimed squarely at iPhone owners. It’s all about the Apple W1 chip, which makes this pair slicker than your average pair of Bluetooth headphones. They’re easy to live with, and Bluetooth performance is almost faultless whether they end up connected to an iPhone or Android equivalent.
