Looks like Dr. Dre and Monster Inc. have split their ways after a 5 year relationship building some of the world's best high end headphones. Beats by Dr. Dre are for people who would consider themselves audiophiles, from the most basic listener to the person who takes every single music note and every single bass note to the extreme.
Dr. Dre Headphones is a well recognized brand, worn by some of the best known celebrities and athletes, such as; Gwen Stefani, Kayne West, Eminem, FloRida, Lady GaGa and more!
This breakup was due to an irreconcilable dispute between Beat's Jimmy Iovine and Monster's Noel Lee. The core issue is who deserved to take more credit. Is it the Beats By Dr. Dre brand, Monster for their design and production, or as Beat's spokesperson said, "high-quality status symbols" tied in with celebrity connections?
As an owner of the Beats By Dr. Dre headphones brand, more specifically, their Beats Pro (over-ear headphones), I have enjoyed them immensely! Listening with my BlackBerry Bold 9900, BlackBerry Torch 9810 or through my BlackBerry PlayBook, the sound quality is like no other.
What is going to happen to customers like me who have purchased these high-end headphones? Do you have a pair of Monster Beats headphones?
