What you need to know

  • Beats and fragment design have teamed up to create a special edition Powerbeats Pro combo.

Beats today announced a new collaboration with fragment design that has resulted in the only Powerbeats Pro you should be looking to buy. The new black-on-black design looks stunning.

If you'e looking at picking up a pair of Powerbeats Pro, you need to check this color out before placing any orders.

In their latest collaboration, Beats and fragment design have brought Hiroshi Fujiwara's elegant, minimalist approach to the Powerbeats Pro. The sleek, black-on-black design features the iconic double lightning logo on one earbud with FRGMT branding on the other. The inside of the charging case also has the same black-on-black design marked by the double lightning.

There might already be a black pair of these earbuds, but they don't have the same pizazz as this new collab.

After exploring rounds and rounds of different color ways, Hiroshi landed on this design simply stating, "nothing beats black on black."

You can't really argue with that.
