Optus has a ripper of a deal for audiophiles looking to upgrade their iPhones. For a limited time, you can score a free pair of wireless Beats Solo3 headphones valued at $399 when you sign up to select iPhone plans. Here are the details!

When it comes to mobile plan incentives, we usually prefer extra data over bonus hardware. But a free pair of $399 Beats Solo3 headphones is pretty hard to pass up.

These stylish cans are specifically designed for Apple products and boast a bunch of premium features, including 40 hours of battery life, 5-minute Fast Fuel charging, an inbuilt mic for phone calls and Stereo Bluetooth powered by the Apple W1 chip.

Even if you’re not a Beats guy, you can easily sell them online to claw back some of the cost of the phone. An unused pair of Beats Solo3s can go for well over $200 on eBay, for example.

So how do you bag your freebie? First you need to select an eligible Apple iPhone plan, all of which come with at least 50GB of data. Customers who sign up before July 1 will receive an SMS within 48 hours of activating their service. (This text contains a link on how to redeem the headphones.)

Usually, freebies of this calibre are reserved for flagship pre-orders such as the Huawei P30’s free SONOS One offer. By contrast, you can get this deal with pretty much any iPhone, including the two-year old iPhone 8. Nice!

Here are some of the available plans (click on our interactive table for a full list of inclusions.)

iPhone XS (64GB)

iPhone XS Max (64GB)

iPhone XR (64GB)

iPhone 8 (64GB)

On the downside, all eligible plans are on a 24-month contract, which is a pretty big commitment. (This does mean that the monthly handset repayments are cheaper, though.) You’re also limited to a colour choice of matte black.

You need to claim your free headphones by July 15, 2019 – so don’t keep putting it off. Click here to see more options!
