Monster and Beats may be going their separate ways, but it appears that there’s at least one last Monster Beats product that will be released. Monster’s Beats Wireless headphones, pictured above, hit the FCC today, winning approval for its Bluetooth capabilities. As you’d expect, the Beats Wireless headphones pair with a Bluetooth device and provide users with the bass-y Beats experience they’re used to. The headphones also feature typical controls for answering/hanging up on calls, music and volume control.
Beats Wireless headphones will retail for $280. A release date for the device has not yet been announced, but today’s FCC filing suggests that we’ll be seeing them soon.
Monster’s popular Beats by Dre headphones will soon be getting a wireless upgrade, thanks to an FCC filing by Monster which won approval today. Known as Beats Wireless, the headphones use Bluetooth and can be used as both headphones and a headset for calls. Music and call controls are located on the right ear muff, and allow users to control volume, play/pause, forward/back, and answer calls. The headphones also have a rechargeable battery – a big improvement over previous versions of Beats which guzzled AAA batteries.
No word on pricing or availability yet, but we’d expect to see Beats Wireless headphones available before Christmas.
