Smart home deals: Beats

Our smart home deal of the day is on everything Beats. From headphones to earbuds, these Beats are hard to beat.

How good are Beats, really?

Beats products sit firmly in the middle of the pack as far as sound quality and value are concerned. The Surround Sound is catching up to Apple AirPods Max, and noise cancellation has improved tremendously with the latest product releases, rivaling that of pricier options. You won’t have a lot of options for EQ management, but out of the box, Beats are better than average and tough enough to go anywhere with you.

My picky ears invested in Beats Studio Pros last year with the intention of using them as travel audio earphones, and I find myself using them while watching Apple TV and choosing them over my AirPods Pro 2 for gym workouts and to take Zoom calls.

Right now, you can catch huge savings on these top-tier audio goodies from Beats.

Beats Studio Pros are great for movies, the gym, travel, and casual listening. The sound is bright and balanced, and unlike earlier Beats models, they’re not too bass-forward.
