Instead of the typical gold finish, this one comes in solid, 24-karat gold covering the edges, top, bottom, and back.

They include the Beats Pill portable speakers, Ur Beats ear buds, and Beats Studio headphones, and each comes in an Alexander Wang embossed glossy stingray case with a zipper and clip. Each one is available in limited amounts in a pre-sale event, but won't be for long.
