Beats By Dre – The Neighbourhood Collection

Beats by Dre has announced its new Neighbourhood Collection, featuring Solo3 Wireless headphones, Powerbeats3 Wireless earphones and the Beats Pill+ portable speaker in fresh new colours.

The Brick Red, Turf Green, Asphalt Gray and Break Blue colourways are influenced by urban city life, representing the vivid environments of the world’s most interesting neighbourhoods on the rise. With today and tomorrow’s creatives in mind, the collection was designed for those who are inspired by their neighbourhoods while also making up the cultural DNA of where they live.

Solo3 Wireless on-ear headphones are the next evolution of Beats’ Solo line, compatible with iOS and Android devices and featuring Class 1 BlueTooth. One-step BlueTooth connection is available for iOS 10 users via the Apple W1 chip, and the headphones boast a 40-hour battery life and Fast Fuel that provides 3 hours of playback after just 5 minutes of charging via the mirco-USB cable.


Powerbeats3 Wireless are Beats’ ultimate in-ear, wireless earphones, designed for use over multiple workouts. With a 12 hour battery life and sweat and water resistance, the earphones once again include Class 1 BlueTooth, as well as flexible earhooks for added security during movement. This time, the Fast Fuel charge provides 1 hour of playback time from 5 minutes of charging, and you can play music, hop on a call or activate Siri easily without your device thanks to Beats’ RemoteTalk capability.


Beats Pill+ is Beats’ signature BlueTooth speaker made for indoor and outdoor get togethers, BBQs and beach days. It packs a considerable punch despite its compact size, as well as a 12 hour battery life. You can also pair two speakers together for amplified sound or take turns DJing by pairing two music devices to one speaker.
