While Beats announced three new wireless headphones equipped with Apple's new W1 wireless chip earlier today, it also quietly released the new Beats EP wired headphones with a 3.5mm headphone plug. The new on-ear headphones are built to deliver "premium" sound in a "tough" and lightweight frame.

The headphones are battery-free, allowing unlimited playback with a hassle-free fixed cable. They also come with adjustable vertical sliders so that users can personalize the fit for their head. RemoteTalk control allows users with iOS devices to take calls and control their music.

The Beats EP are available in four colors (blue, white, black, and red) and is available now on Apple.com and select retailers for $129.

Is this a parody post? "Everything old is new again?" Sounds like any good ol' classic headphones from the past 50 years! (You know, before all these added hassles...)

I laughed. It sounds like an Apple Keynote in a few years if they brought back the 3.5mm headphone jack as a new "innovation!"

Beats probably sells over half of its headphones to folks using Android. And percentage might be up to 75%. The Android phones use jacks. They will continue to service that market for years to come.

Beat releases regular headphones when Apple removed the headphone jack,
instead of a lighting version. There's a real special kind of dumb going on here.
