Just in time for Christmas, Beats by Dre has announced a new pair of over-ear headphones.

Beats by Dre Executive are over-ear headphones described as ‘high definition.’ Clearly aimed at the top end of the market, these headphones looks stunning and include a brushed metal finish, with metal Beats accents. They certainly look more premium than the Beats Solo and Beats Studio cans, which are far more plasticky. And also far more discrete.

On-board is noise-cancellation technology designed to block out external noise, while an automatic shutoff powers down the battery when the headphones aren’t being used.

Beats Executive are the latest headphones to join the Beats By Dre line-up following its recent collaboration with David Guetta with the Beats mixr headphones, aimed at DJs. Of course the company’s earbuds are also supplied with the HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE.

We spoke to a representative for Beats by Dre, who confirmed the cans would be coming to the UK, but could not confirm pricing or availability, although you can register your interest on the Beats Executive microsite.
