Are Justin Bieber's Headphones Worth the Price?
Justin Bieber has teamed up with Monster and Beats By Dr. Dre to release his own line of headphones this holiday season, but when each models cost over $100 a pop, are they worth it?
The products, which are called JustBeats, come in an on-ear model ($199.95) and an in-ear model ($119.95). Both are available in Justin's favorite color purple, one with a matte finish, the other with a chrome effect. The high-quality headphones are aimed at "opening the ears of young music fans" with the idea that they'll deliver a better listening experience than standard earbuds or computer speakers.
"Young people today are being introduced to music through inferior technology in the form of ripped mp3′s, ill-designed laptops and crippled earbuds and headphones," Beats By Dr. Dre co-founder Jimmy Iovine said in a press release. "When they listen to music because of the inferior quality of earbuds the only recourse they have is volume, which isn't going to do anything but damage their ears."
We know all about how listening to loud music increases the potential for hearing loss, but we're not sure if pricey headphones are the solution. However, if you want to get your hands on the same kind of gear Justin sported in his 'Somebody to Love' video, spending a cool $200 might be worth it to you.
Justin Bieber's JustBeats headphones will be available exclusively at Best Buy this holiday season. Do you think you'll buy a pair or is this one of the Bieber products you won't be spending your cash on? %Poll-53616%
