Beats fans that are hoping to scoop up the colorful new Powerbeats Pro might be a bit disappointed with the color options when units arrive in stores in May.

Apple revealed the Powerbeats Pro wireless earbuds earlier this month with black, ivory, moss and navy color options. The ivory ones look especially sleek, but it appears that only the black ones will be available at launch.

“Powerbeats Pro in Black availability Begins in May,” reads a note posted on BeatsbyDre.com. “Ivory, Moss, and Navy will be available this summer. Color availability is subject to change.”

Powerbeats Pro coming soon

The new Powerbeats Pro are the first truly wireless earbuds to come out of the Beats by Dre labratory. They’re pretty much the same as the new AirPods, only they have better sweat and water resistance. Longer battery life is one of the other standout features and they have the same H1 wireless chip you’ll find in the updated AirPods that came out last month.

You’ll be able to pick up Powerbeats Pro at your local Apple store in May, though an exact launch day hasn’t been given. Launch countries include the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Lichtenstein.
