Beats announced its new Solo2 headphones at the end of last month, but the company is already back with another new product. Today the soon-to-be Apple-owned company unveiled the not-so-subtly named Powerbeats2 Wireless, its first set of wireless inner-ear headphones.

The new earbuds comes in an either all-white or a black and red design, with the two earbuds connecting by a short wire that also holds a small control panel for pausing your music and toggling the volume. They’re also sweat and water resistant, and feature a “tangle free cable.” The battery promises to last up to six hours, and if you’re in a pinch you can charge an hour’s worth of juice in just 15 minutes. As for the the music quality, Beats says these earphones offer dual-driver acoustics and a premium sound without blocking out all external noise.

Powerbeats2 Wireless will retail for $199.95. You can sign up for an alert when these Lebron James-backed headphones go on sale, though there’s no official word on when you’ll actually be able to buy a pair for yourself.
