Apple's Beats brand on Friday is announcing four new color options for its Powerbeats Pro wireless headphones: Spring Yellow, Cloud Pink, Lava Red and Glacier Blue.

The announcement comes after several leaks indicated that new summer-themed colors could be coming to the Apple-owned, Beats-branded wireless headphone lineup.

Besides the color options, the new Powerbeats Pros are identical to current models. The new colors will be available on June 9 and will retail for $249.95, the same as previous models.

Powerbeats Pro are designed with a fitness and sports focus, sporting an IPX4 water-resistance rating, adjustable ear-hook loops to help secure them during workouts, and up to nine hours of listening time.

While they're larger than AirPods and don't feature noise cancellation, the Powerbeats Pro do come equipped with Apple's H1 chip for easy pairing and the always-on "Hey Siri" features.

They feature a Fast Fuel feature that offers up to an hour and a half of additional battery life in a five-minute charge, on-ear volume and playback controls, and come with four sets of eartips. The charging case itself does not support wireless charging, but is instead charged via Lightning.
