Following its highly successful box office premiere, Dr. Dre and his Beats By Dre counterparts have decided to create limited edition Straight Outta Compton headphones.
The black headphones feature the logo of the N.W.A. biopic and retail for $379.95 on the Beats website.
“Where you come from shapes who you are today,” the product description reads. “We all come Straight Outta somewhere, we all have our own unique stories. This studio wireless headphone is inspired by Straight Outta Compton in very limited quantities.”
The film depicts N.W.A’s rise to prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It brought in $60 million its opening weekend.
Dr. Dre sold Beats to Apple in May of last year for a reported $3.2 billion.
The Beats By Dre Straight Outta Compton headphones arrive at a perfect time to capitalize off the movie’s success. It recently experienced its second-consecutive week atop the box office and has crossed the $100 million mark on a $29 million budget.

FEEL YOUR MUSIC
The Beats Acoustic Engine™ makes your listening experience personal and real. Our signature DSP software is designed to generate the emotional experience that some of the music industry’s greatest rock, hip-hop, pop, electronic, and R&B producers want you to feel. This is how music would sound if the artist could play it back for you in person.
PUT THE WORLD ON MUTE
Silence the noise from your daily commute or the drama from your loud neighbors with dual-mode Adaptive Noise Canceling. When you’re listening to music, ANC automatically strikes the perfect blend between your music and the world outside. If you only want to use the headphone to cancel external noise, the ANC only mode automatically increases the level of noise cancelation, to put the world on mute.
Dead batteries can kill your vibe. The new Beats Studio Wireless comes with a built-in rechargeable battery that lasts 12 hours when using wirelessly and 20 hours when you do decide to plug in. To prevent wasting energy, the Auto On/Off feature turns the headphone off when you unplug from a wired connection and with the Battery Fuel Gauge, you always know how much juice is left. Forget specialized adapters; the Studio Wireless can be charged via micro USB almost anywhere.
LIGHTER, STRONGER, AND MORE COMFORTABLE
When we reimagined the iconic Studio, we designed it like a beautiful sports car and made disciplined choices. It is streamlined with fast curves, smooth surfaces, and no visible screws. We reduced the original weight and gave it a lighter, stronger, and more comfortable headband. The softer ear cups have an ergonomic bellow that creates a flexible custom fit, so you can keep your music all to yourself.
