Beats on Tuesday announced the Solo Pro, its latest wireless headphones with active noise cancellation.
The on-ear pair will retail for $300 and be available on October 30, with pre-orders starting today. They’ll join the over-ear Studio 3 Wireless, which cost $350, in the Apple subsidiary’s noise-cancelling headphone lineup.
Like the Studio 3 Wireless, the Solo Pro headphones use a form of adaptive noise cancellation Beats calls “Pure ANC.” This has the headphones' microphones constantly monitor the noise of your surroundings, the music currently playing, and your fit, then adjust the intensity of its active noise cancellation accordingly. You still can’t manually change the strength of the ANC, but Beats says it has fine-tuned the algorithm that drive the Pure ANC tech to better suit the Solo Pro’s on-ear design.
