Since Apple officially closed the acquisition of the Beats by Dre music hardware and software company back in August, Apple is launching a new pair of headphones today, a Bluetooth-powered wireless version of the Solo2 headset, with a $299.95 USD price tag when it goes on sale later this month at Apple.com and from select online retailers. A new ‘Royal Edition’ variant of their wired Solo2, which includes new color options and a satin finish, priced at $199.95 would be out soon.
The Solo2 Wireless features the same on-ear design of the Solo2, as well as the same color options, while Bluetooth is included for wire-free connectivity to your devices.
Solo2 Wireless should offer good sound, given that they have the same acoustic design as the wired Solo2, and they also provide control via buttons on the earcups for track skipping, pause and play, and volume up/down. The rechargeable internal battery should get you 12 hours of listening time, and if you happen to run out of juice, you can use the included cable, complete with inline mic and remote, to keep listening.
