I was wondering when Beats would revamp their ever popular Solos headphones line ever since they did the same thing to their Studios series some months back. What better time to build upon its recent buzz with Apple announcing purchase of the company for $3 billion yesterday then a revision to its on-ear models.
So you wonder what has changed about the Beats By Dre Solo series?
Solo2 is designed with you and your lifestyle in mind
Sound: The Solo2 headphone has a more dynamic, wider range of sound, with a clarity that will bring you closer to what the artist intended, whether you’re into hip-hop, heavy metal, jazz, electronic, or country.
Design: The Solo2 headphone maintains the same sleek, streamlined aesthetic as the iconic Beats Studio with fast flowing curves and no visible screws. Starting at the center of the flexible headband, the frame of the headphone has been curved?like never before, giving the Solo2 a custom-fit feeling. The earcups have been ergonomically angled to complete this natural fit, with pivots for optimal comfort and sound delivery. Finally, the earcups’ premium material helps dissipate heat and minimize sound leakage.
Colors: The Solo2 headphone will be available in Black, White, Red, Blue, Gray, and Pink.
Partnership: Beats has once again teamed up with project (RED), making the red Solo2 an official (RED) product, helping to fight the battle against AIDS.
Solo2 headphone retails for $199.95 and is available globally for pre-order starting May 29, 2014 on www.beatsbydre.com. It will be widely available on June 1, 2014 also at www.beatsbydre.com and authorized Beats retailers.
Beats also announced a partnership with Snarkitecture, a collaborative practice operating in territories between the disciplines of art and architecture. Inspired by a shared love of music, the two teamed up to turn the iconic Studio headphone into a piece of art. The completely matte white object strips away the familiar colors and logos, so the headphone can be experienced in its purest form accompanied by Snarkitecture’s famed Pillow made from white cultured marble.
The Snarkitecture X Beats retails for $600 and will be available on June 9, 2014 on www.beatsbydre.com.
