The new Beats Solo2 on-ear headphones will deliver the same audio quality and acoustics as the original pair, with the addition of Bluetooth-based wireless functionality. The headphones can now be used up to 30 feet away from your iPhone or other Bluetooth-enabled device and can take phone calls, skip songs, and change the volume using the “B” button and volume buttons on the ear cup.
The headphones have a built-in rechargeable battery for up to 12 hours of wireless playback time. If you forget to charge the headphones or the battery dies, you can simply plug in the RemoteTalk cable and use the pair wired and continue listening to your music.
“We’re taking the most popular headphone in the world and adding wireless Bluetooth functionality to it,” said Beats President Luke Wood. “The Solo2 is already a world-class headphone much lauded for its acoustics, and now it joins our growing family of successful wireless products.”
Beats Solo2 wireless headphones will be available in red, black, white, and blue. The red version will be exclusive to Verizon both in stores and online.
