  2. Flash on iPhone is just around the corner: This five-year-old article made it's way back after being linked to by John Gruber of Daring Fireball. Since then we've learned that just because it's in testing behind closed doors, doesn't mean that it's going to make it's way to public release. Also, John, why couldn't you have linked to when we broke what was the biggest Apple software leak of the decade?

  3. Mod your Xbox without a mod chip: This is an all-time favorite of our readers. It dropped out of the top 10 last year, but has reappeared for 2013.

ColorWare now offering custom-painted Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones

ColorWare Beats by Dr. Dre

By now, you probably know that we are big fans of the Studio headphones. We are also fans of , the peeps that custom paint just about every popular gadget. Well, now ColorWare is offering custom-painted Beats by Dre Studio headphones, and they look hot. We’ve previously shown you a few custom ColorWare Beats headphones, including the Ron Herman white Beats, LeBron James red Beats, and Charlie Hamilton pink Beats. As you can tell from those three features, ColorWare does some amazing work on these headphones.

If you’ve got a pair of Beats that you wanna send in for a paint job, that’ll cost you $249—otherwise, you can buy a new pair direct from ColorWare, with design, for $525.

We’ve got a video showing off a few pairs of ColorWare Beats for you, after the break.

Bleeding Edge TV 303: Beats by Dr. Dre definitive look

We’ve been seeing a bunch of interest in our coverage of the line of headphones, and rightfully so, we think. It’s the headphone we rock when we travel somewhere, and we even recommend them if you are looking for a new pair of over-ears. In this episode, we wanted to give you a look at some of the other super-rare and limited edition versions of the Beats Studio headphones. We’ve got a pair of the standard black set, but in this video we give you a look at the white Ron Herman Beats, the red LeBron James Beats, and the ultra-rare pink Charles Hamilton Beats. Definitely not anything you should plan on getting your hands on, but nice to see that the Beats are being positioned as a collectors item in a way. If you are into music videos, you’ll likely have seem them in over a dozen different ones over the past few months.

Look out for more exclusive versions in the future, we can’t imagine that this is the end of it.


Bleeding Edge TV 300: White Ron Herman Beats by Dr. Dre headphones

Remember those limited edition white Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones we told you about? Well, we got a pair in our studios and decided to do up a video showing them off. In this episode, we compare the white Ron Herman Beats by Dr. Dre to the standard glossy black Beats, and give you a close-up look at all the major and subtle differences between the two. Of course, the internals are exactly the same, so these $700 white Beats are all about style and high fashion. But hey, they are definitely fun to look at.

Hat tip goes to , who Monster tells me worked really hard on developing a custom finish that would stand up to bending and everything else people do with headphones. They look fantastic.

Also, in case you missed them, we’ve also got galleries up of the pink Charles Hamilton Beats, and the red LeBron James Beats. Or, you prefer the original, we’ve got the standard Beats by Dr. Dre gallery as well.

White Beats by Dr. Dre side

If you’ve been paying attention over the past couple of days, then you’ve heard that is about to release a very limited edition version of their headphones into the world. The thing is, they are gonna cost $700 - twice the price of the standard Beats headset that we love so much. We got in touch with Monster for the backstory on these special editions, just to clear everything up.

First of all, you’ll only be able to pick these up from the Ron Herman boutique store in Los Angeles. These Beats headphones aren’t just pure white—they are done up in Ron Herman white, blue, and gold. Unfamiliar with Ron Herman stores? Well, let’s just say a t-shirt there will run you over $60. It’s all about high fashion. In fact, Ron had this to say about the custom Beats:

“Our Ron Herman boutiques are the quintessential environment where one can experience the unification of fashion, music and culture. Beats By Dr. Dre are more than just headphones, they are a fashion accessory.”

Can’t argue with the dude either, the Beats are a fashion accessory almost as much as they are a functional pair of noise-cancelling headphones. I’ve seen hip hop artists wearing them just to look cool. That’s not the only reason for the expense though. According to Monster, one of the biggest challenges with getting the Beats out the door was the finish. They sport a custom coating that works as both a glossy coating and a paint. This coating has to bend freely, while never cracking. These custom Ron Herman Beats were worked on by , who had to come up with a similar solution. Plus, have you ever gotten anything customized by Colorware? It isn’t cheap. So in this sense, Monster is basically passing the cost of the coloring process on to the customer.

One last tidbit - if you are a big baller and want one of these white fashion pieces, hurry up. No more than 20 pairs of white Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones are going to be made. Supply and demand baby! Check out our White Beats by Dr. Dre gallery for a close-up look at what you can get at the Ron Herman store.

Also, in case you missed them, we’ve also got galleries up of the pink Charles Hamilton Beats, and the red LeBron James Beats. Or, you prefer the original, we’ve got the standard Beats by Dr. Dre gallery as well.
