Forget those crummy wired earbuds that come packed in with most smartphones these days. If you want a quality audio experience, you need to look to premium brands like Beats by Dre. Originally conceived by the titular rapper and music producer, Beats by Dre headphones are designed to deliver rich sound and clarity without compromise. Unfortunately, that means they're not exactly cheap, which is why it's worth hanging out for Boxing Day to score a pair at a discount.
This year, you can expect to see retailers offer some pretty attractive deals on the Beats by Dre range, especially on older models from the past couple of years. Retailers want to clear these older models out to make way for newer headphones in the Beats line, so you can often find them selling for a fraction of their original price.
Aussie stores have yet to disclose their Boxing Day sales, but as soon as they do, we'll update this page with the best deals on Beats by Dre.

The premium pricing of Beats by Dre doesn't leave a whole lot of wiggle room for retailers and you're likely to find many brick-and-mortar stores offering similar prices across the Beats line. It's a different story online, as marketplaces like Amazon and eBay tend to have more attractive deals thanks to sellers importing stock from overseas or selling refurbished models at a steep discount compared to their brand-new counterparts.
Is it better to buy online or in-store?
This is a tricky question. While shopping online lets you quickly and easily compare pricing from multiple retailers, you may have to deal with extra delivery costs and the potential supply issues of competing with the entire population of the Internet for that killer deal. On the flip side, hoofing it to your local shopping centre will mean contending with the Boxing Day crowds and comparing prices is significantly more time-consuming. That said, you have the advantage of physically holding and testing out different Beats headphones to better decide which one you want, plus you can occasionally haggle your way into a deal you never would have been able to get online.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
