Both the headphones and the speaker remain physically the same as their less-shiny counterparts, it's just the colour that's changed.
They'll be available in the UK, exclusively in Selfridges, toward the end of the year. At the time of writing, Beats wasn't able to confirm wider availability.
It also wasn't able to confirm the price. The headphones and speaker will only be sold as a set so you can expect to pay something north of £410, given the £330 and £90 price tags of the existing headphones and speaker, respectively.
The gold isn't real, thankfully. It's just a paint job, so it shouldn't push the price into the thousands.
CNET editor David Carnoy cast his eyes -- or rather, his ears -- over the regular Studio Wireless headphones and gave them an excellent four star review, stating the "Beats Studio Wireless is a very comfortable over-the-ear wireless headphone that offers excellent sound."
All parts of the Studio Wireless cans are coated in the gold colour, including the headband. I found it made the headphones something of a fingerprint magnet, so you'll want to give them a polish before heading somewhere where you want to show them off.
The speaker remains physically unchanged as well -- it's really all about the colour. Whether a gold mini speaker will match the rest of the decorations in your living room or bedroom will really depend on your furnishings.
