Roughly a week after the last Beats Studio Buds collaboration launch involving Twitch streamer NICKMERCS, Apple's Beats brand is launching a new special-edition version of the earphones in partnership with design firm Futura Laboratories.

The new collaboration comes almost a decade after the original collaboration between Beats and Futura Laboratories founder FUTURA, with the first having been for Solo HD headphones back in 2013.


The new Futura X Beats Studio Buds feature the artist's signature "atom" motif and will be available starting Saturday, July 30, at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time from Futura Laboratories Online, END Clothing, and Beats' WeChat store. Pricing will be at the usual Beats Studio Buds price point of $149.99, £129, or ¥1099 RMB.

As with the NICKMERCS collaboration, FUTURA has also developed a custom Apple Music playlist featuring songs that are "reflective of his New York City background" and which resonate with him.

Looks different. Might find some buyers. At least there is no premium charged for this variant.

Why are Beats collaborations always for redundant headphone models?

I don't know why the Studios even exist.

Beats Fit Pros are reviewed as vastly superior.
