Alexander Wang is lending his signature edgy and modern aesthetic to a set of wireless headphones from Beats by Dr. Dre. The Alexander Wang Special Edition Beats Studio Wireless headphones (that’s a mouthful!) are, of course, produced in limited quantities and have an all over dove grey color. This is the second collaboration between Wang and Beats and reflects how much the designer has changed in the years since that first collaboration.
These over-ear Bluetooth headphones come with the label’s famous sound, a rechargeable 12-hour battery, Adaptive Noise Canceling, and a built-in mic like all other Studio Wireless headphones. However Wang has added croc-embossed Italian leather ear cups, chrome accents and a matching croc leather case.
“I really wanted the second collaboration to stand out in the crowded arena of the premium headphone market,” said Wang, “Typically, headphone design isn’t really known to incorporate innovative materials or graphic elements, so it was important for us to ensure that the end product felt luxurious without being pretentious, with a focus on textures and architectural lines.”
The Alexander Wang Special Edition Beats Studio Wireless headphones are available for purchase at AlexanderWang.com for $600.
