* High-end Parisian style meets modern Beats technology
* Powerful sound and dependable Bluetooth functionality
* 12 hour battery life with Fast Fuel charging feature
As earphones become a staple of everyday life, people are beginning to demand high-quality sound pieces that elevate personal style. Apple has taken notice (as they do) and released a special edition Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones in collaboration with the renowned Parisian fashion house, Balmain.
The collaboration is a great move by both brands. Apple brings reliable sound and technology, and Balmain brings its high-end aesthetic. The earphones are an in-ear design with flexible hooks and a neck cord. The ear hooks, neck cord and tips are finished in a safari tan. The back cases are accented with metallic gold, then stamped with the Balmain Paris and Beats logos. The campaign, meantime, is fronted by Kylie Jenner.
The initial run of this collaboration sold out in stores within days. But we’ve found brand new, unopened versions still available on eBay. The site also has the super limited-edition Beats by Dre Balmain x Kylie Jenner headphones, though those are a little pricier on the re-sale market.
The Powerbeats have a focus on workout functionality and durability, with sweat and water resistance, reliable Bluetooth functionality and a secure fit. They also feature a new battery that lasts up to 12 hours and a Fast Fuel feature that lets you charge an hours worth of power in just five minutes.
