Beats Electronics introduced the Solo 2 headphones Thursday.
In 2013, nearly four Solos were sold every minute around the world.
Beats President Luke Wood:
“When you think about Beats you think about iconic design, incredible sound, premium quality, profound comfort and of course, portability, we’ve worked hard to earn this reputation and along with that comes very high expectations. Solo 2 delivers on all fronts while finding new frontiers in audio performance to bring the emotion back to music.”
The Solo 2 headphones have a more dynamic, wider range of sound, with a clarity that will “bring you closer to what the artist intended.”
The Solo 2 headphones maintain the same sleek aesthetic as the Beats Studio with 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 Solo 2 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 help dissipate heat and minimize sound leakage.
The Solo 2 will be available in black, white, red (with the company’s partnership with project (RED)), blue, gray and pink.
The Solo 2 headphones retail for $199.95 and is available for preorder starting today on beatsbydre.com. It will be available to immediately order on June 1st on the aforementioned website and other authorized Beats retailers.
