Three neutral shades will be available for the earbuds, aiming to combine functionality with fashion.

The idea for the collection reportedly came from Kardashian, who asked an artist to paint a pair of Beats headphones she was wearing.

These three colors are moon (light), dune (medium), and earth (deep).

She then decided to bring her design to the brand, who decided to produce them on a larger scale to make them available to consumers.

In a behind-the-design video for the brand, Kardashian said, “I found an artist who would paint the headphones, and then I thought, why not just go straight to Beats and show them some of the patterns I’ve made was just making it for fun [as] They have never had a product like this on the market before.

“I’ve just brought my creative concept and color palette to a brand I’ve always respected and loved.”

The earbuds still include all the features of the original Beats Fit Pro headphones, such as B. Noise cancellation, a transparency mode to hear things that’s going on, and Apple’s spatial audio feature that delivers three-dimensional sound.

“They’re so comfortable I forget I’m even wearing them.”

She added: “Traditionally, most consumer electronics have come in standard black and white colors. But I wanted to incorporate universal neutral cores since headphones are truly wearable tech accessories.
