Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones
Beats by Dr. Dre or Beats electronics was established by rapper-producer Dr. Dre and Interscope founder Jimmy Iovine in 2006. The company is mostly known for their headphones, but also offers earphones and speakers/docking stations.
Beats Electronics originally partnered with Monster Cable, an audio and video cable company that manufactured the headphones for Beats. Since 2013, the two companies have stopped working together. As such, the old Monster Beats headphones are not manufactured anymore.
Dr. Dre originally created the headphones because he wanted people to be able to hear music the way the artists were hearing it in the studio. Appropriately, the slogan of the brand is: ‘People aren’t hearing all the music’.
