Apple has launched special edition Mickey Mouse-themed Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the cartoon character. The wireless headphones are grey colored and feature the classic Mickey design. They also come with a matching grey felt carrying case, a collectible pin and a decal sticker.

Mickey Mouse made his first appearance on November 18, 1928 and it replaced Oswald, the Lucky Rabbit, one of original characters designed by Disney.

Among many cartoon characters designed by Disney, Mickey Mouse is one of the most iconic and well-known character.

Considering its popularity, Apple has gone ahead to design Mickey-themed Limited Edition Solo 3 Wireless headphones. In the past, Apple-owned Beats brand has done similar collaborations to create characters-themed headphones. It once created Hello Kitty themed Solo Wireless Headphones and UrBeats. The new Mickey Mouse Limited Edition headphones are listed as “Coming Soon” on Apple’s own website but is available for pre-order from Amazon.

“Celebrate “The True Original” with Mickey’s 90th Anniversary Edition Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones. Keep the magic going with award-winning sound and up to 40 hours of battery life. The cool-gray headphone features Mickey Mouse in the iconic pose seen on classic t-shirts that we all know and love. It also comes with a custom felt case inspired by the materials from Mickey Mouse ear hats, along with a collectible pin and decal sticker to honor the collaboration,” the release note said.
