Apple on Tuesday launched a special Mickey Mouse edition of its Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones, timed with the character's 90th anniversary.

The headphones are covered in images of Mickey and come with a special custom felt carrying case, as well as a pin and decal sticker. Functionally the headphones are identical to other Solo3 models.

While the headphones go on sale Nov. 11 at Apple, Disney and Best Buy, they can already be preordered from Amazon for $329.95.

Apple regularly adds and replaces Beats colors to keep up interest, particularly since it often markets the gear as a fashion accessory. Today, in fact, the company also introduced new "Skyline" colors for its high-end Studio 3 headphones, accented by gold trim.

In September, Apple announced plans for NBA-branded headphones, though those have yet to appear.
