Beats’ Solo3 wireless headphones are among the company’s most technically advanced headphones, packing big sound, all-day battery life and Apple-designed technology into a sleek, slim package.

The headphones don’t normally go on sale, but they’re marked down to $79 right now as part of Walmart’s Black Friday Weekend deals, now live. Normally $199.95+, this is their lowest price for these Beats by Dre headphones we’ve ever seen.

Beats has established itself as a design and technology-driven audio company, and the Solo3 continues that tradition by using Apple’s W1 chip. This chip allows the Solo3 to stream audio from Apple’s devices with less latency (lag) and better responsiveness.
The W1 also allows you to use Siri by saying “Hey Siri” to control settings, change songs, take calls and more. The Solo3 will connect to non-Apple devices using Class 1 Bluetooth technology, one of the best versions of the wireless standard.

Beats says the Solo3 can last up to 40 hours per charge. Just as impressive: get three hours of listening time by plugging them into a power adapter for just five minutes when the battery is low.
Other features we like include the adjustable strap, cushioned ear cups and the portable, foldable design — great for commuting or travel. The headphones are also surprisingly lightweight and we’ve worn them for an entire day at work and on long flights without stress or headaches.
This set includes the Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones, a carrying case, charging cable and warranty card.
Sold out at Walmart? Get the Beats headphones for just $99 at Target.com — a generous $100 discount of 50% off the regular price.
The Beats headphones discount isn’t tied to a larger sale or promotion, and probably won’t last very long, so we recommend picking up a pair while you still can.
