(Pocket-lint) - Apple has officially launched a new Decade Collection of Beats by Dre headphones, to commemorate 10 year of the headphone brand. The Decade Collection was originally thought to launch at WWDC next week, but is now available to buy directly from Apple. The Collection comprises five pairs. 

The five pairs of Beats headphones in the Decade Collection include the Studio 3 Wireless, Beats X, Beats Solo 3 Wireless, Powerbeats 3 Wireless and the urBeats 3. They sport an exclusive "Defiant Black-Red" colour finish, which combines a mainly black finish with red accents. The only differences we can see between the Decade Collection Powerbeats 3 and the "Siren Red" finish is a red carry case and red cable slider, otherwise they're virtually identical.


The other four pairs meanwhile look strikingly different to their non-Decade Collection counterparts. The Studio 3 Wireless also get "EST 08" embossed on the left ear pad and a case with "TEN YRS" on it. The Solo 3 Wireless and urBeats 3 also get a "TEN YRS" carry case. The Remote Talk cables for wiring the Solo 3 and Studio 3 Wireless comes in a new red finish, too. Finally, the urBeats 3 are available with either a Lightning or 3.5mm headphone connection.

Despite being marketed as a limited edition range, the Decade Collection of Beats headphones has the same asking price as the 'regular' models, making them worthwhile snapping up while you have the chance.
