Beats by Dr. Dre headphones have always had a "youthful" look, but the Beats Executives abandon loud colors and urban design in favor of a subdued brushed metal finish and leather headband for the kind of people with matching kitchen appliances. The cans fold for easy packing, have automatic shut-off to preserve the noise cancellation batteries, and claim to let you hear the music "exactly the way the artist intended," just like all the other Beats products. They're handsome too, so if you like what you see, you can reserve a pair with your email address at the source. Monster's store lists them at $399.95, but the closest thing we have to a release date is "coming soon."
