Apple has revealed that the Beats Studio 3 Wireless headphones are getting a minor update, with three new colors available, all accented with gold trim and branding.

Beats Studio 3 Skyline Wireless headphones

The new colors in the Beats Studio 3 Skyline Wireless headphone line are Crystal Blue, Desert Sand, and Midnight Black. All have the same specifications as the regular line, but now have gold accents including the beats logo, and the headphone band.

The line still contains Apple's W1 chip for Bluetooth connectivity and easy pairing with the iPhone. Pure ANC provides ambient noise reduction, and Apple claims the Studio 3 headphone line has up to 40 hours of battery life without Pure ANC, and 22 hours of life with the feature on.

Apple's Fast Fuel technology promises 3 hours of playback with a 10-minute charge

Should you not want to use Bluetooth connectivity, there's a bundled 3.5-millimeter stereo cable with an inline remote.

The Studio 3 uses over-the-ear cups instead of the Solo 3's on-ear arrangement. This improves sound isolation, and in our experience felt more comfortable as well

The Beats Studio 3 Skyline price remains unchanged at $349.

Where to buy

Apple authorized reseller B&H Photo is currently accepting preorders for the new Beats Skyline headphones with free expedited shipping within the contiguous U.S.

    That actually says more about the people in said studio than it does about the headphones.

    I had a pair of Beats, and I could tell that the sound wasn't "perfect" (I got them just after spending some time as a sound technician, so I was extra "sensitive"); and, worst of all, any attempts of using the equalizer to get the sound right just made it flat and empty.

    They are absolute crap if you need anything other than Beats own preset idea of how they should sound.

    But… I was happy with them.

    Soft and comfortable to wear, the "bad" sound didn't bother me, the battery lasted long enough, they kept people from talking to me, and they kept my ears warm at winter. In short, they were ridiculously overpriced compared with the (lack of) quality, but they were right for me; and looking at how well they fit into my life, they at the time were the cheapest option.

    So, hey, buy what you actually need, not what will make the know-it-all wannabes "respect" you.

    By people with small penises -- who also don't know what they're doing.

    Beats is one of the most popular brands of headphones. Of course you'll want to see how your master sounds on them, if only because tons of your own fans will listen to your tracks in them.
