Beats unveiled its latest limited-edition headphone on Tuesday in a black-on-black Beats Flex model created in association with Fragment Design.
Teased by Apple’s Beats arm on a mail to Twitter, the all-black Flex marks the brand’s second collaboration with Fragment for 2021. The first, a similar Spartan PowerBeats Pro black design, debuted in January.
“The design inspiration is a continuation of our latest collaboration, as I still believe that nothing is as sophisticated and refined as the black-on-black colourway,” Fragment founder Hiroshi Fujiwara said of the new Flex: according for Complex. “My personal preference for headphones is Beats Flex, as I like the lightweight neckband for listening to music. I hope people can use them on a daily basis.”
Much like the PowerBeats Pro effort, the Fragment version of the Flex features a black-on-black colourway with branded trims including a control module adorned with the Fragment logo and “FRGMT” lettering.
The Beats Flex is a continuation of the Beats X wireless headphones and features a W1 chip, 12-hour battery life, USB-C connectivity, and improved acoustics. W1 integration enables fast syncing with iOS devices and Audio Sharing support. At the bottom of the Beats lineup, the $ 69.99 Flex is touted as the brand’s “all-day” wireless headphones.
Limited edition Beats Flex sales will launch on Apple’s online store and SSENSE Thursday, November 18.
