The second generation of Beats Solo2 headphones will be the first pair under Apple tutelage. Continuing its push into the wireless arena, the on-ear headphones will ditch the wires in favor of Bluetooth support. With the addition of Bluetooth, listeners can expect up to 12 hours of battery life with approximately a 30 foot range. Unlike previous iterations of Beats headphones, the wireless Solo2s will employ a rechargeable battery, instead of the usual two AAA batteries. Beats is also including the RemoteTalk audio cable, on the rare occasion you’re caught between charges. This pair will hit Apple stores sometime in November for $299. The Solo2’s will also be available in several colors including the traditional red, black and white.
The headphones will also be available in Blue, as well. The company is offering a $199.95 Royal Edition line which casts the Solo2s in Stone Grey, Hunter Green, Imperial Violet, Blush Rose and Sapphire Blue. So besides a multi-hued selection, what else can music lovers expect from the first Beats headphones under the Apple umbrella? As far as design, the Solo2 Wireless look pretty similar to their predecessor. That’s not a bad thing, since the Solo2s’ streamlined design was always easy on the eyes. While the headphones look as pretty as ever, they aren’t carrying an Apple logo (as of yet). We’ll just have to reserve our final verdict on the Beats Solo2 Wireless headphones until we snag a review unit.
