Apple owned Beats Electronics today announced the debut of its new Solo2 Wireless on-ear headphones. The headphones, the first product release by Beats since its acquisition by Apple, are a wireless version of the wired Solo2 headphones that debuted the day following the announcement of the Apple/Beats deal.
Solo2 Wireless offers the same dynamic sound and streamlined design as Solo2, but with the added benefit of wireless capabilities. With its Bluetooth technology, Solo2 Wireless can move freely for up to 30 feet from your audio device. Take phone calls, skip songs, and change the volume using the “b” button and volume buttons on the ear cup. Its rechargeable battery allows you to enjoy up to 12 hours of wireless playback. Not charged? Not a problem. Just plug in the provided RemoteTalkTM cable and enjoy your music.
The headphones will be available in red, black, white, and blue, and will be available via Apple and other retailers later this month at a retail price of $299.95. However, the red version will be a Verizon Wireless exclusive through the end of 2014.
Beats also announced new “Royal Edition” color options for the wired version of the Solo2 headphones. The new option includes a “satin, iridescent finish” in Stone Grey, Hunter Green, Imperial Violet, Blush Rose, or Sapphire Blue. The “Royal Edition” will be available later this month for $199.95.
