Apple Discontinues Powerbeats, Beats Solo Pro, and Beats EP
Following the launch of the Beats Fit Pro this morning, Apple has discontinued several older Beats headphones options, including the $150 Powerbeats, the $250 Beats Solo Pro, and the $130 Beats EP on-ear headphones.
These Beats headphone options were listed on Apple’s online store as of yesterday, but today, attempting to visit one of the links for the products brings up a warning that the accessories are no longer available for purchase.
Twitter users noticed the absence of the Beats headphones earlier today, and it appears they disappeared from Apple’s site shortly after the debut of the Beats Fit Pro.
Apple has removed the Beats EP, Beats Solo Pro and Powerbeats 3 headphones from the Apple Online Store. This happened a few hours after the presentation of the Beats Fit Pro wireless headphones.
