Beats unveils new wireless headphones because Apple killed the headphone jack

New, 28 comments

Beats is revamping nearly its entire lineup of high-end wireless headphones and earbuds to coincide with the announcement of Apple's new iPhone 7, AirPods, and W1 wireless chip. During today's Apple keynote, Phil Schiller announced that Beats will be releasing new Solo 3 Wireless headphones, Powerbeats 3 sport earbuds, and a new set of neckbuds known as Beats X.

The Solo 3s will offer 40 hours of playback and can now be preordered for $299.99 in gloss black, gloss white, gold, silver, rose gold, and black; they clearly designed to match Apple's color offerings for the new iPhone 7. The Powerbeats 3 are coming this fall for $199.95, are sweat and water resistant, and offer 12-hour battery life when fully charged.

We do know that all of them will include Apple's W1 chip, the company's solution for reliable wireless audio between its new iPhone with no headphone jack and other devices.
