Beats by Dr Dre x Alexander Wang Collaboration

It’s been three years since Beats by Dr. Dre collaborated with Alexander Wang. This time, the two brands have come together again to release a special edition Beats Studio Wireless headphone. The duo held an exclusive, no-social media party with a crowd of A-listers at Manhattan, New York to celebrate the launch of the new Beats headphones. 

The familiar flagship Beats is given the Alexander Wang treatment and exudes his signature irreverent style. We’re talking about a striking dove grey body, croc-embossed Italian leather ear cups accented with chrome, a smooth headband stamped with his brand name, and a matching leather case – making this masterpiece a true collector’s must-have.

The Beats, even though aesthetically changed, still retains its 12-hour rechargeable battery life, adaptive noise cancellation and a built-in mic for a seamless usage experience. The collaboration marries the exceptional sound quality of Beats with Alexander Wang’s distinct, urban artistic taste. The special edition Beats x Alexander Wang Studio Wireless headphone is available for $828 at Alexander Wang’s Hilton boutique.
