Beats launches headphones that glow in the dark

Beats launches headphones that glow in the dark”

You probably didn't need it but well it's here.

The glow-in-the-dark Powerbeats earphones were announced in partnership with Ambush. What's special about them?

According to Yoon Ahn, co-founder and creative director of Ambush, the design was inspired by Tokyo's energetic and glowing nightlife, and envisions the new Powerbeats as "capturing that same city energy" for users who are out listening to music late at night.

The Powerbeats Ambush Special Edition will go on sale at Selfridges, End Clothing, Apple and Ambush Design in the United Kingdom from 18 November with - perhaps - the only downside being this special designer collaboration means they cost more. Well, it has this neat feature where it glows in the dark. Most importantly, though, they're the first glow-in-the dark product from Beats. And speaking of attention, city runners could definitely find utility in these for their night runs. In this newest variant, only the glow-in-the-dark part is new. As you might expect, Ambush branding is stamped on in close proximity to the iconic Beats "b" logo.

Apart from these aesthetic differences, this is still very much the Powerbeats Pro. They will be priced at $199.95, a $50 premium over the standard Powerbeats. They'll set you back £169.95, rather than £129.00 of the non-Ambush model. They also have the H1 chip for superfast pairing and switching between iCloud devices, "Hey Siri" support, and Fast Fuel technology, where a 5-minute charge will get you 1 hour of playback. They last up to 15 hours on a single charge, offer IPX4 sweat-resistance, and ear-hooks which make them suitable for workouts. There's no word on availability in India.
