Beats has unveiled its first new product since Apple acquired the company earlier in the year. The Solo2 Wireless will be available later this month for $299.95.
According to Beats:
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.
According to Luke Wood, Beats president:
We’re taking the most popular headphone in the world and adding wireless Bluetooth functionality to it. The Solo2 is already a world-class headphone much lauded for its acoustics, and now it joins our growing family of successful wireless products.
The Solo2 will be available in red, black, white, and blue, and available through Apple and select retailers.
Beats has also announced the new “Royal Edition” colors for the wired Solo2. These include stone gray, hunter green, imperial violet, blush rose, and sapphire blue. The $199.95 Solo2 launched in May.
