Let’s face it: traveling can be a pain. Sure, you can go from New York City to Los Angeles in about five-and-a-half hours, but spending that much time sitting between a jet engine and a crying baby can be downright maddening. Not to mention the complete stranger sitting next to you who only wants to talk about why California pizza is so much better than New York slices (he’s completely wrong, by the way).
A good pair of noise-canceling headphones can magically block all sorts of annoying sounds around you, so you can just sit and listen to your favorite music and podcasts when you’re on an airplane. Enter the Beats Studio3, a pair of premium wireless headphones with top-of-the-line noise-canceling features. Right now, they’re on sale for $280, or $70 off retail on Amazon.
Usually going for $350, the Beats Studio3 connects to your Apple iPhone or Android smartphone via Bluetooth. In fact, if you’re an iPhone user, these wireless headphones automatically pair to your mobile device—thanks to its built-in W1 chip. This is the same chip used in all Apple AirPods for seamless syncing each and every time.
These wireless headphones feature up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge, so you don’t have to worry about going without noise-canceling on long flights. In addition, this pair has a “Fast Fuel” feature that gives the Beats Studio3—which are also sweat- and water-resistant—three hours of playback time on just a 10-minute quick charge (or one hour of use from just five minutes of charging). It’s that fast!
And finally, Beats Studio3 come in a litany of colors, such as Matte Black, Shadow Gray, Midnight Black, Forest Green, and much more. These headphones also come in NBA colors, including Houston Rockets Red, Philadelphia 76ers Blue and more.
Here are just a few of the more than 1,950 near-positive reviews on Amazon:
“Wore these traveling for the first time and was able to successfully ignore 95 percent of people who were trying to interact with me because I literally could not hear them (the 5 percent used hand gestures to get my attention),” wrote one satisfied shopper. “On a Southwest flight, there's always a risk of singing flight attendants, corny airplane jokes, or people who clap when you land, but I was blissfully unaware of any of the aforementioned. Would recommend for any anti-social/anti-airport chatting travelers.”
Another delighted traveler added, “These are the best headphones I’ve ever had! I travel 99 percent of the time for work and am on planes twice a week. I am exhausted and don’t want to talk to people. These are perfect for when you are anti-social on the plane and airport. They’re a beautiful color too and the battery life is awesome at 22 hours. Also, the noise canceling is amazing. Definitely worth the money!”
