Apple’s interest in merging tech and fashion is hardly a secret, especially when you consider that over the past few years, Apple has hired quite a few executives who have had extensive experience in the fashion industry. Let’s not forget that the Apple Watch is also being positioned as a fashion accessory, thanks to Apple’s collaboration with fashion labels such as Hermes.

This is why it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that Apple is trying to take on the fashion world again, and this time with a pair of special edition Beats headphones that was designed in collaboration with designer label Balmain, where they have also enlisted model Kylie Jenner who you can see in the image above donning the pair of Beats headphones.

The new Apple x Balmain Beats headphones come in a signature finish which they are calling Safari, which basically appears to be light pink mixed with some gold accents. The headphones will also come in a special suede Balmain case that comes with the Balmain logo and zipper. It is also probably why the headphones are priced slightly higher than usual.

The Balmain Powerbeats 3 Wireless Earphones will be priced at $249 while the Balmain Beats Studio Wireless Over-Ear Headphones will retail for $599. Are these worth it? We guess it depends on how much you like the brand/design, but they are available for purchase if you want.
