Not content with only Apple Watch pre-orders and a slim new MacBook, Apple has quietly classed up the Beats Solo 2 wireless headphone line with some fairly familiar colors: Silver, Gold, and Space Gray.

You know it’s an Apple joint when Space Gray shows up.

These new Solo 2 headphones are just in time to match to your new Apple Watch, too, since Bluetooth is the only way to get music from Apple’s hot new wrist accessory.

Of course, you can also plug these bad boys in to your iPhone, as they come with a wire that lets you play and pause your music, and even answer and mute calls with a RemoteTalk cable. The Solo 2 headphones will run you $299.95 for any of the seven colors available, including red, blue, black and white in addition to the new Apple colors.

At least now you can fully Apple-ify yourself with the right type of finish on your headphones, with Beats and Apple pulling together after Apple’s acquisition of the music hardware and streaming service company last fall for $13 billion.

If over-ear cans aren’t your thing, though, you could always grab a pair of Beats earbuds. In Space Gray, of course.
