Apple-owned Beats by Dre has partnered with Disney to launch a Mickey Mouse 90th Anniversary Edition of its Solo3 wireless headphones. Announced this week, this new edition of the Beats Solo3 comes with a custom felt case with Beats and the Mickey Mouse logo, and a 90th Anniversary enamel pin. The limited edition Beats Solo3 wireless headphones sports a Mickey Mouse-inspired decal sticker, and has the phrase “Heritage 1928” engraved. The pair is priced at $329.95 (roughly Rs. 24,300) in the US, which is about $30 (around Rs. 2,200) more than the regular variant's retail price.
To recall, the Beats Solo3 pair of wireless headphones was first launched in September 2016. According to the Amazon.com listing of the Beats Solo3 Mickey Mouse 90th Anniversary Edition, the pair will be released on November 11. The Mickey Mouse character debuted back in 1928, and completes 90 years in 2018. We can expect other such brand collaborations this year, considering companies might be looking to cash in on the 90th anniversary of this globally popular Disney character.
The Beats Solo3 offers a claimed battery life of up to 40 hours in a single full charge. Its Fast Fuel feature gives you 3 hours of playback with just about 5 minutes of charging. The Apple W1 chip in the Beats Solo3 wireless headphones enables a seamless setup and switching between Apple devices. The headphones support charging via a Micro-USB port. It is available in several other colour options - Matte Black, Satin Gold, Satin Silver, Gloss Black, Rose Gold, Gold, and more
In the Beats Solo3 wireless headphones package, you get a carrying case, a 3.5mm RemoteTalk cable, a USB to Micro-USB cable, a quick start guide, and a warranty card.
