Back to School 2015: Apple Throws in Beats Solo2 Headphones with Mac Purchases


Apple today announced its anticipated Back to School 2015 promo. Between July 23 and September 18, 2015, those buying a Mac computer at an Apple Retail Store (and in the online store starting from August 6, 2015) will receive a free pair of Beats Solo2 headphones valued at $220 CDN (via 9to5Mac).

Actually, qualified buyers will be able to choose between two products: a pair of Beats Solo2 On-Ear Headphones, which come as a “free gift,” or a pair of Beats Solo2 Wireless On-Ear Headphones. If they want to upgrade to wireless Beats Solo2 Headphones, they can do so for an additional $110.

Apple’s Back to School promotions previously brought gift cards alongside eligible purchases such as a Mac computer or iPad. It is the first time Apple has offered Beats headphones as a gift, but that’s because the acquisition was made only last year.


  • Anthony ?

    I’d definitely go for the wireless upgrade, I have a pair and they work very well with my iPhone, especially in the winter since you don’t get to have a frozen headphone cable hanging off the side of your head…

  • I agree…. I would go for the wireless one too.
    Already have the Solo HD and the urbeats2… I was thinking about the wireless Solo2…
    I think it’s an interesting Back to school promo…and it make sense since it’s promote Apple products… compare to the 100$ app store card, it was promoting the app store and people were buying apps or software not from Apple…
