Beats by Dre Samurai – The future of Beats is looking pretty bright after their acquisition by Apple, and first on the agenda is international business. A special Samurai Edition of the Studio 2 takes on the rich heritage of Japan and incorporates it across the premium set of headphones. The Studio V2 is embodied by a rich indigo blue exterior that pays homage to the dyes and textiles used centuries ago. The cloth binding found on a set of samurai swords is referenced across the headband of the headphones, and a family crest is white in printed on the interior.
