Beats has released a wireless version of its popular Solo2 headphones. The headphones have gone on sale online from Apple.
Music can be played wirelessly for “up to 12 hours” before the battery needs to be recharged and a Bluetooth range of 9 metres. When the battery runs flat, simply revert back to the auxiliary cable.
Built into the cable is a microphone and a button so that phone calls can be answered. The volume can be tweaked from controls on the cups.
The headphones are of the on-ear variety and can be folded for convenient packaging.
Available colours are blue, red, black and white. The headphones themselves retail for $399 and can be purchased from Apple, both online and in stores.
Good Gear Guide is working on a review of the Solo2 headphones and will publish it within the coming fortnight.
