For the style-conscious, Beats by Dre Solo3 merges signature aesthetics with the convenience of Bluetooth, making a statement as bold as the playlists they blast. The latest Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) are a whisper in the ear for those on the move, with their compact form and the new Lightning MagSafe Charging Case ensuring they’re always ready to roll. Beats Studio Buds are for the beat-makers and the trendsetters, offering true wireless freedom and noise cancellation, so nothing gets between them and their music.

For those who prefer an enveloping audio experience, the JBL Tour One M2 headphones wrap around the ears with a comfort that's matched only by the immersive sound they produce.
