Got your Air Jordan shoes, now you need your Beats by Dr. Dre headphones
If you haven't notice the biggest holiday gift this past year was a set of $200+ headphones. The headphones are called Beats by Dr. Dre. Overpriced celebrity endorsed products are an old marketing gimmick. Once celebrities start wearing something every status-conscious teenager wants it. The commercial with Colin Kaepernick for these headphones has made owning these pricey headphones a must for anyone hip enough to listen to music on their smartphone or tablet. And you thought paying $300-$400 for your smartphone or tablet was expensive!
Still have some money left in your bank account? How about $1 million for the diamond encrusted Beats headphones Lil Wayne showed off at a recent NBA game.
Dr. Dre has reportedly made over $100 million on these endorsed headphones. And all along we thought good quality earbuds were good enough. How unsophisticated!
You can have your Dr. Dre I will take Eric Clapton any day.
