A good pair of headphones doesn’t have to cost hundreds of dollars. The Beats Solo 4, released earlier this month, are living proof.

Already moderately priced at $199.95, the new addition to the Beats family just got its first discount — and it’s a pretty good one. As of May 13, you can snag the Beats Solo 4 wireless headphones for just $149.95 instead of the usual $199.95. That’s 25% in savings on all three shades — cloud pink, slate blue, and matte black.

While we find it a bit questionable that the Solo 4s don’t include noise cancellation, they do have a lot of other features worth mentioning. Compared to the Solo 3s, they pack an extra 10 hours of battery life, clocking in at 50 hours total. Plus, with Fast Fuel, 10 minutes of charging will deliver five more hours of playback. Thankfully, unlike the Solo Pros, they do include a 3.5 mm audio cable that delivers high-resolution lossless audio with no need for a charge.

The Solo 4s also come with personalized spatial audio, upgraded drivers, rebalanced acoustics, and an improved frequency response. That means the sound is noticeably more dynamic than their predecessor. When you’re not listening, you can easily fold them up and slip them in the included travel case for seamless portability.
