Originally, it was the black which is "Coming Soon" with all other colours "Coming this Summer". Today when I checked again, all colors are "coming this summer" now. :(

Guess I have to continue to use my falling apart BeatsX in the coming months.

They were/are hard to get in the states and we launched first.

Finally I bought the BeoPlay E8 2.0 after hearing good reviews about it. Also it looks better without the earhooks.

The best headphones I have
Really great sound coming from a pair of truly wireless earphones. My ears can't hold the AirPods at all so in-ear is a must for me. Unfortunately the PowerBeats is delayed so badly. Of course the BeoPlay comes with a pretty expensive price tag too (~370$).

Quite disappointed with the Beoplay. Excellent music quality, however, call quality is abysmal in noisy environments, and when I used the overcast app to listen to podcasts, there is constant static noise. Really don't know why this is happening.
