Apple launches special edition Beats Solo3 wireless headphones
Apple has just announced a new pair of Beats Solo3 wireless headphones that will only be available for purchase in China. Since they were launched at the beginning of the year, they're called “New Year Special Edition.”

They can be purchased in China for the equivalent of $330 and come in silver wing gray color. Unfortunately, chances are very slim that these special edition Beats Solo3 wireless headphones will ever make it outside China, but you'll definitely be able to order a pair if you're willing to pay the customs fees.

Technically, they're not different from the regular Beats Solo3 headphones available in the rest of the world, but Apple may sell only a limited number of units. If Apple decides to bring these “New Year Special Edition” Beats Solo3 headphones to other countries, they shouldn't cost more than $350.

It's worth mentioning that customers in China can pick these ones up for just $28 per month for 12 months (interest-free) if they can't afford to pay the whole amount upfront.

Special edition pretty print? Lol! Just build a good pair of headphones first that is at least worth the asking price.

Don't waste your Money to any of these Headphones, they look nice but the electronic components are weak. Bought a 2 pairs, and both had charging port issues, $140 to repair both, a real waste of money.

"$140 to repair both, a real waste of money" That really is a rip off when they only cost between $14 to $ 20 to manufacture.

And what really pissed me off is after a week's they stoped working again. This time the bluetooth transmission was faultly, the quote they gave me was $85 per headphone, didn't want to spend more money. They look nice and have the prestige of Apple brand, but reality is they are a rip off. The mindset is if your phone is worth a $1000+, then surely the cost these is nothing. And talk about profit, ouchhh.
