Beats headphones are a tempting alternative to Apple's AirPods line, but they often come with similarly high price tags. Now, however, they have become much more affordable with a huge sale at Amazon, Best Buy, and Apple, where you can get some headphones for half off. If you’ve been waiting to pick up a new pair of Beats, or just want an AirPods alternative, now is the perfect time.  

However, with so many options available, it can be easy to get lost in all the choices. We have hand-picked some of the best deals out there in the Beats sale.
