Beats and Fragment Design have come together for another limited edition headset, black-on-black Beats Flex. Earlier this year, the duo offered the black PowerBeats Pro limited edition model.
Beats by Dre, owned by Apple, offers a range of Bluetooth headphones. Recently, the company launched new Beats Fit Pro in-the-ear headphones with a flexible wingtip design and Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency Mode, and other features for $199.99. And the addition of a new mid-range special-edition headset gives consumers more options.
The special-edition Beats Flex earbuds feature Hiroshi Fujiwara’s sleek black-on-black design to showcase their utilitarian form, along with FRGMT’s iconic double lightning logo and branding on opposing exteriors of the collar. The bold direction also extends to the packaging and includes a co-branded decal inside.

Designed by Hiroshi Fujiwara, the new black-on-black Beats Flex headphones have a simple minimalistic design with earbuds connected with a wire. Fujiwara is known are his high fashion streetwear and is called the master of artful disturbance, “stripping everything down to its core to uncover what is most essential, meaningful, and beautiful in every product he designs.”
Complex reports that the new special-edition Beats Flex model will offer a 12-hour battery life for an all-day listening experience which will retail for $69.99.
In a press release, Fragment founder and artist Hiroshi Fujiwara said:
“The design inspiration is a continuation of our last collaboration, as I still believe nothing is as sophisticated and refined as the black-on-black colorway. My personal headphone preference is Beats Flex, as I like the lightweight neckband for listening to music. I hope people can wear and use this on a daily basis.”
