$1,000 For Chrome Beats By Dre Headphones?

04.22.11 7 years ago 32 Comments

I’m well aware there are diehard audiophiles out there but exactly who pays a stack for headphones? Obviously, I’m not the intended audience for these or headphones period since I only use earbuds and that’s mostly when traveling, just as a diversion so people won’t talk to me. Not knocking the hustle because while I whiff at pricey audio trinkets, I’ll spend more on a pair of sneakers than the average, sane person would.

Coincidentally, I had a convo yesterday with a guy who does marketing for another gadgetry company. He said the best thing about Dre and other celebs endorsing headphones is now all all headphone manufacturers can overcharge for products that only differ due by a few slight nuances and logo placements. And the endorsement, of course.

Limited to 50 pairs. Call your connects.
