Apple's Beats Brand Launches New 'Beats Club Collection' Solo3 Wireless Headphones

Apple's Beats brand today launched a collection of new Solo3 Wireless Headphones in a range of bright color combinations, including yellow and blue, white and red, red and blue, and navy and white.


The new headphones are priced at $199.95 like other Solo3 Wireless models, and with their launch, Beats has discontinued all other available Solo3 headphones with the exception of the special Mickey version.


Like most Beats headphones, the Solo3 models are equipped with a W1 wireless chip for quick and easy connections to Apple devices, alone with up to 40 hours of battery life.


Apple is running a promotion on some existing Beats headphones models as well, dropping the price of all Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones from $349.95 to $279.95, a $70 discount.


The price drop includes the standard Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones as well as the Skyline collection in special colors.


Apple is also discounting the Mickey-branded 90th anniversary edition Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones, dropping the price from $299.95 to $224.95.

Apple: "New Beats products!"

Me: "Awesome. Charges with a USB-C cable, right?"

Apple: "Er, no."

Me: "Ok, Lightning port at least then, right?"

Apple: "Uh, nope. It's still micro-USB. Wanna try it?"

(crickets)


Yes it charges with the most popular USB connector is use today. The odds of someone else having a micro USB cable in their home is about 100%, USB C closer to 1%.

You guys sound really old.

Beats cater to an entirely different market. It's for young adults, teens, kids, athletes, and anyone making a statement. Not everything has to be black, silver, and low key.

Ever watch NBA warm ups? Those guys are wearing them and the kids follow up. Have you seen Nike shoes lately?

Again, Apple knows what they're doing.

If Apple really wanted to take my money, they would produce matte-black AirPods.

Don't know why so much hate on the colours, the colour combinations are not bad. I like the navy blue-red.

It's gunna take a lot of headphone sales to recoup that $3 Billiion purchase price

You really can’t be unaware of how popular Beats headphones are especially with millennials and fans of Hip-Hop and R&B

Beats obviously are not for the old grumpy people here. Guess why these are part of Apple’s back-to-school promo? And so what if they don’t sound good enough for the discriminated audio connoisseurs? Most kids listen on Spotify!

I like them but I think there are enough variants of Solo3 now. The yellow ones are nice but I didn’t like the blue inside.

I understand that they don’t update the internals as long as they call them Solo3. Hopefully they make some Solo4 soon with lightning or USB-C and H1 chipset. I have the silver/white ones but find myself using only my AirPods all the time.

Right now I am waiting for availability of the Powerbeats Pro in my country (Sweden, so yellow and blue Solo3 would be ok I guess)
