A collaboration between Apple’s Beats brand and celebrity Kim Kardashian will soon result in three new colors of Beats Fit Pro wireless earbuds.
The three new “neutral” colors are designed to blend in more than most earphones. They come out at Apple.com/kim starting August 16 and at select Apple Stores and resellers on August 17.
With Kim Kardashian’s help, Beats Fit Pro wireless earbuds coming in three new neutral colors
As you may recall, Kardashian spilled the release of Beats Fit Pro when they first came out. Paparazzi snapped her wearing them ahead of their official release.
Kardashian’s three new colors are called Moon (light), Dune (medium) and Earth (deep). Muted and earthy, they’re a departure from the often basic black, white or bright colors seen in many tech accessories, like headphones and earbuds.
“Since you’re wearing something every day, I wanted them to be able to blend in,” Kardashian explained in a video about the release (below). “And I’ve never seen any tech products, especially headphones, be in neutral colors.”
‘Blend in or stand out’
“I wanted to break away from the idea that headphones have to be colorful to make a statement,” Kardashian said. “This collaboration is special because it allows you to blend in or stand out, and Beats is known for creating products that showcase individuality.”
Launched late last year, Beats Fit Pro have seen positive reviews. Users like the comfortable fit provided by flexible wingtips and multiple sizes of silicone ear tips.
The earbuds are also technologically advanced, similar to AirPods Pro. They feature Active Noise Cancellation with Transparency mode, spatial audio support, and an H1 chip for one-tap pairing, Siri support and automatic switching between Apple devices.
And you can get AirPods Pro in must one color (white) while Beats Fit Pro come in four colors (and now more), as noted below.
New color palette
These new Kardashian colors, Moon (light), Dune (medium) and Earth (deep), add to the existing Beats Fit Pro colors: Beats Black, Beats White, Sage Gray and Stone Purple.
“Kim brought her signature minimalist style to the first-ever Beats Fit Pro custom headphones,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Services. “We’re excited to offer Beats’ most innovative headphones in a whole new, gorgeous color palette to music fans and fashion lovers alike.”
