If you don't need ANC or prefer an on-ear design, the Apple-designed Beats Solo3 are down as low as $100 at Amazon. That's 50% off and as low as they have ever gone.

Since Apple bought Beats, it has continued to release new models and the latest headphones and earbuds all offer one-tap pairing with Apple devices while still working with Android and other Bluetooth devices.

In the past, Beats have been known for a slightly bass-heavy sound. That's not so much the case these days, though the tuning is still a little different to Apple's AirPods line. If you're not a fan of how AirPods sounds, it's entirely possible you may like the way the Beats headphones sound better.
