In addition to its Back to University promotion launched in Australia, New Zealand, and Brazil today, Apple has also unveiled a pair of special edition Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones as part of its Chinese New Year gift guide.

Available in Silver Wing Grey, the New Year Special Edition Beats headphones, which are currently only available in China, continue a new Apple trend of decorating Beats in unique celebratory decals.

In October last year, Apple unveiled limited edition Mickey Mouse Beats Solo3 models to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the famous Disney cartoon character.

Previous to that, Apple released a Decade Edition model of the Solo3 as a salute to the longevity of the Beats brand, which the company acquired in 2014.

As well as the new Beats, Apple's annual Chinese gift guide is also promoting the latest iPhone, Apple Watch, and iPad Pro models under the banner of family reunion over the holiday period.

I like the design of a warthog on the headphones that coincides the Year of the Pig. Reminds me of the monkey-themed one they released during the Year of the Monkey.

Wow. Even if these sounded awesome, I'd be hard pressed to consider them, looking like that. Much prefer a plain look, over this cheese.

I like it actually, wish there was a Studio3 version of it

It looks classy and smooth not too busy.

However Apple’s brand has been tainted heavily this past week in China. Apple should not be selling anything that doesn’t have a standard USB-C port.

Actually, at least they aren't the Mickey Mouse versions…

As silly as it is ... I’d really limited run the Mickey Mouse v could be worth it’s weight.

I HATE how my Beats use micro USB. Its the only thing I have thats not USB-C or lightning. Unfortunately I’m not willing to give up instant pairing and the W1 chip to switch to another headphone maker

I know right!!

Apple really knows how to suck us in and keep us there. iCloud parring with W1 is THE best use of simplistic tech Apple has achieved. I honestly feel dumb no other manufacturer thought this out.

Reminds me of that joke Craig did on stage making fun of Android phones having to go around tap tap tapping other phones to share content using NFC. What most didn’t realize is Wi-Fi advice sharing allows you to keep your personal space.
