The news: Apple-owned beats has released a new version of Beats Studio Buds in collaboration with UNION LOS ANGELES, a fashion retailer.
- Red, black and green color the packaging, case and Beats Studio Buds themselves “drawing inspiration from the Pan-African flag and paying tribute to Union’s roots as a Black-owned business”
- Beats last collaboration with A-COLD-WALL* offered a new colorway for the aging Beats Studio3 over-ear headphones
Our take: While the Beats Studio Buds didn’t work well for me as my ears aren’t compatible with in-ear headphones, I’ve heard a lot of love for them online considering the feature-set is quite impressive for $150. This marks the first collaborative drop for this model of Beats so far, and this Pan-African-inspired design looks slick on these.
