The team-up draws inspiration from artisanal jewelry and juxtaposes it with the technological utility of the headphones with customizable beads. When not in use, the magnetic sides of the buds allow the fashion-focused tech to be worn as a necklace. Building on the individuality associated with music, the designer Chitose Abe transformed the BeatsX headphones into deeply personal accessories with the collaboration.
Set to release in “Burned Red,” “Deep White” and “True Black,” the customizable sacai x Beats By Dre BeatsX features an eight-hour battery with Fast Fuel charging that gives two hours of playback off five-minute charge. The wireless earphones also come with RemoteTalk functionality which allows you to access your phone and adjust playback seamlessly. The magnetic construction and Flex-Form cable ensures that the earphones can be easily stored in the accompanying sacai branded carrying case.
Priced at $150 USD, the sacai x Beats By Dre BeatsX collaboration is set to release March 4 at apple.com. Catch our conversation with Chitose Abe and President of Beats Electronics Luke Wood below to learn more about the highly-anticipated collaboration.
