Reports began surfacing yesterday that Apple is looking to acquire Beats Electronics to the tune of $3.2 billion. The company is apparently in late stage talks with Jimmy Iovine and friends that could see the popular headphone brand and the new Beats music streaming service change hands.

What this means for the brand as a whole is still unclear, but it will likely be a while before we see new hardware designs influenced directly by the reported acquisition. Along with its BT speakers and other accessories, Beats has released several versions of its Dr. Dre branded headphone options (including a line of earbuds in partnership with Apple) with, in many cases, mostly aesthetic upgrades, leaving some great deals on older models that sound just as good.

For example, the latest generation Drenched in Color series are currently listed at around $170 on Amazon and most retailers down from the regular $200, which is still more expensive than the older $300 models that are arguably better sounding.

With all of the Beats talk in the news lately we decided to round-up the best current deals available:


  • The Beats official Ebay refurb store can be a great place to pick up solid discounts if you’re looking for a particular model/color – items include a 30-day warranty from Beats

Be sure to follow 9to5Mac for all the latest updates on the Apple/Beats story and you can see more discounts in our latest Headphone Round-up.
