Well this is pretty dang cute. Immediately following Wednesday’s Apple event, Beats announced that it would release over-ear headphones in two new colors, and three bright new colors for its Lightning Connector headphones.
The best part? Since Apple owns Beats, all the headphones match the new iPhones.
Apple debuted the iPhone XS, XS Max, and iPhone XR on Wednesday. The phones in the impressive lineup all come with Face ID technology, no home buttons, and, obviously most important of all — fancy ‘n fun colors.
The XS models come in Space Gray, silver, and gold finishes. Correspondingly, Beats Solo3 Wireless on-ear headphones will now be available in Satin Gold and Satin Silver. Ooooh. Pretty nice, if you’re into matching.
But if sleek sophistication isn’t for you, Beats still has you covered. Apple’s iPhone XR comes in SIX colors: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT)RED. Beats took the most ~fun~ of those offerings, and made some corresponding headphones to match: urBeats3 earphones with Lightning Connector will soon come in yellow, blue, and coral, and they look prettyyy cute.
The Beats Solo3 Wireless pair in the new colors are available in the Apple store now. And the in-ear headphones will drop later this fall.
Some predicted before the event that any sort of Beats update was unlikely. There has been speculation that Apple is shunting aside its interest in Beats, in favor of more robust Apple headphone offerings — including rumors about the development of an over-the-ear pair.
Beats’ fun colors are certainly nothing major. But they’re cute, and show that Beats is still a cozy member of the Apple Squad. For now.
