Apple's newest headphones, Beats Studio 3 Wireless

Apple's audio subsidiary, Beats, released a new pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones for $350 on Monday.

The Beats Studio 3 Wireless headphones now slot in as the highest-end headphones that Apple makes and the only model with active noise cancelling.

They're an updated version of Beats' now-discontinued Studio Wireless headphones. It's a pair of over-ear headphones and its external appearance is nearly unchanged.

But this new model has been updated with Apple's W1 chip, the same chip that's in Apple's AirPods which enables easy pairing with an iPhone or iPad. The new model also has improved noise cancelling, putting the headphones in direct competition with similar headphones from brands like Bose.

The Beats Studio 3 Wireless headphones are wireless and can manage 22 hours of battery life with noise cancellation turned on, according to Beats. They charge with a microUSB connector, not Apple's Lightning connector and they come in 6 colors.

Apple's most recent iPhone doesn't include a headphone jack, with the company suggesting wireless headphones as one possible solution for users who want to listen to music or other audio.

This is what Apple's current-generation wireless headphones lineup looks like now:
