Beats Solo 2 Wireless headphones now in space gray, silver, and gold.

If you want to match your headphones with your iDevice, Apple has given the Beats Solo 2 Wireless headphones a sleek new paint job.

Published onApril 10, 2015


If color coordinating is important you to you, you’ll be happy to know that Apple has released three new colors for their Beats Solo 2 Wireless headphones: space gray, gold, and silver. Previously they were only available in red, blue, white, and black .

The new color announcement comes at a convenient time as Apple is pushing products that come in the same color options. Rather than adding a new product to the mix of things they’re trying to promote, it’s a smart move to make the Solo 2’s slightly more desirable by coordinating the colors of the headphones with their existing line of devices. The Solo 2 Wireless headphones are the Bluetooth version of the second generation Solo headphones and that extra connectivity will run you another $100 but hey, they’re Bluetooth.

Speaking of Bluetooth, the range on these is about 30 feet and they come with a built-in mic and on-ear controls to make life a little easier when your phone isn’t in your immediate vicinity. Beats claims that the battery life will last about 12 hours of constant playback and the small LED lights on the side let you know how much juice is left. If you do happen to run out of battery you can just pop in the included audio cable and use them as wired headphones until you find a charger. They also come with a carrying case and fold at the hinges for easy portability. One feature in particular that I didn’t know about is the ability to re-name your Beats headphones whatever you want via a downloadable updater. As a huge fan of naming my inanimate objects, this is a useless feature I want everything to have.

If the previous colors didn’t do anything for you, maybe the new sleeker colors will. The only issue with these is still the price. On the downside they still cost $299, but on the upside that isn’t any more expensive than they already were. Basically if you were looking into a pair of Beats for yourself, at least now you have more options.
