Nokia Purity Headphones once again available for just $99 from AT&T

Nokia Purity Headphones

AT&T are once again selling the wired Nokia Purity Headphones for just $99 from its online store. The accessory isn't the latest model with Bluetooth and NFC, nor can it make you a splendid cup of tea, but they're highly rated and are a perfect companion for a Windows Phone.

We previously looked at the US operator slashing the price of the headphones last month, but it's good to see AT&T take advantage of the season for explosive shopping sprees. For comparison, Amazon currently have the same headphones listed for $200.

If you're set to purchase a Lumia 920 on AT&T, be sure to check out the deals available on optional hardware.

Nokia Purity Headphones once again available for just $99 from AT&T



Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online(Click on menu Home)


i have two microsoft stores near me (ironic, huh, given there are like what 25 total..) and none there, not online either. nokia's site, no. at&t site, no. at&t stores, no.... amazon, ebay, wpcentral accessory store, no, no, no...

any thoughts???

Highly rated? I have the red ones and the sound quality is barely passable. The headphone jack already shorted too so twist it to get sound in both ears.

Says you. Over on Amazon there are numerous positive reviews--in fact a lot of them are gushing--and it has an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars.

So yeah, highly rated is an accurate description.

You guys have to realize that nothing is perfect. I am a manufacturing engineer and we sell industrial machines worth over $200k each, but once in a while, we have customers with failed units within their first month of use.
Similarly, I am on my third Nokia Lumia 920 because one had a bad speaker and the other rattled with vibration on. But it does not mean it is a bad product, just bad manufacturing process quality controls. After two bad phones, I will still rate Lumia 920 5 out of 5 stars as it is an amazing product when it works.
One bad headphone set doesn't speak for all but at the same time it doesn't mean there can't be a bad unit once in a while.

Are these things really THAT good? Or are you paying for the brand and pretty colors? Even $100 seems pricey to me, to say nothing of $200.

I'll have to check out my local AT&T, didn't know they were carried in-store. I'd love to try a pair before I commit.

I have a pair and love them. They're great headphones and I dig can I can take phone calls with them on. 

I remember blowing $30 on headphones was a big deal back in the day. Headphones that cost this much better be the headphones to end all headphones.

Does anyone know if these are available anywhere in Canada? No one seems to offer them. And ppl complaining the quality...i tested these out in the USA...they at worth every penny. Sure some models are better, but you'll pay more for them as well.

I was wondering why the headphones were plugged in the corner when the jack is in the middle of the Lumia 920, and then I realized that must be a Lumia 900 in the picture.  Posting this in case anyone else was wondering the same thing. :-)

I had these headphones. I would say the sound was very underwhelming. Keep in mind, I'm not a huge fan of on-ear headphones. I prefer in-ear or over-ear. They are also quite slippery on your head.

They do have one redeeming quality: the included detachable cable has a controller that is Windows Phone compatible. It is a three button version, so it does volume up/down in addition to pause/play/previous/next track.

That's not entirely accurate and you're being dishonest here.

Beats Audio designs their headphones--both the appearance and EQ/sound. Monster merely manufactures them.

You're post suggests that somehow Beats and Purity are equivalent, but they're not as Beats focuses heavily on bass and different acoustic properties from Purity. They also have a much different look to them. It's a taste preference and a lot of people just don't like the sound of Beats, which has zero to do with Purity and/or Monster.

It is perfectly logical and legitimate to say "I don't like Beats but I love Purity" (and vice versa). If you try both, you'll see they are very different beasts.

Not sure if I'm the only one that noticed but att sells women's lamb skin gloves and men's leather gloves. I was scrolling and saw those before I saw the headsets.
