Is it ever OK to wear Beats by Dre in public?

Break down the Beats.



They’re a brand of headphones by rapper Dr. Dre, and have just been bought by Apple for $3 billion. One BILLION, times three.

They’re really expensive (about €150) and basically ‘designer’ audio gear. But they look a little silly. A bit like this.

And aren’t known to have the best quality sound either.


We all know where they got their logo from.


But where do you sit on the Beats scale?

A lot of people find them a bit cringe
