Apple has introduced limited-edition Beats Studio 3 wireless headphones that are designed in partnership with the fashion brand A-COLD-WALL owned by British designer Samuel Ross. Called Beats Studio 3 Wireless — A-COLD-WALL Limited Edition, the headphones feature a slate colour palette that features a “speckled cement” application covering both build and ear cushions. Apart from the fresh design, the new Beats Studio 3 are identical to the existing headphones that Apple first launched back in September 2017. The headphones come with Beats’ proprietary Pure Active Noise Cancelling (Pure ANC) technology and are powered by the Apple W1 chip.

Beats Studio 3 Wireless — A-COLD-WALL Limited Edition specifications
The Beats Studio 3 Wireless — A-COLD-WALL Limited Edition feature a slate colour palette with a “speckled cement” application to deliver a distinct design. The headphones also carry an ACW bracket logo and onyx stroke on each side. Further, the inner band of the limited-edition Beats Studio 3 come in a clay colour.
Apple has wrapped the new headphones in a packaging made of wood fibre. This is claimed to be either recycled or sourced from responsibly managed forests. The exterior box and debossed band are also claimed to be made using recycled fibre content.
In terms of hardware, the Beats Studio 3 Wireless — A-COLD-WALL Limited Edition are the same as the regular Beats Studio 3 headphones. They’ll include the Pure ANC technology that is claimed to actively block external noise and use real-time audio calibration to preserve clarity, range, and emotion. There are also soft, over-ear cushions that help reduce ambient noise. Under the hood, the new Beats Studio 3 headphones include the Apple W1 chip to enable seamless setup and switching between Apple device users. The chip also includes Class 1 Bluetooth (Bluetooth v4.0) connectivity.
The new Beats Studio 3 headphones are claimed to deliver up to 22 hours of music playback on a single charge. The battery can be extended to up to 40 hours by turning off the Pure ANC feature. There is also a Fast Fuel technology that helps deliver faster charging support — three hours of playback time in just 10 minutes of charge.
Apple has bundled the Beats Studio 3 Wireless — A-COLD-WALL Limited Edition with a 3.5mm RemoteTalk cable, USB-A to USB Micro-B charging cable, and a carrying case. The headphones weigh 260 grams.
