Looking to buy Beats Headphones?
It’s no secret, Beats headphones are everywhere. You’ve likely seen them on your commute to work, at the gym, as product placement in music videos and even encasing the ears of famous celebs. Founded in 2006 and later bought out by Apple, Beats by Dre (Beats) is a popular audio brand known for its high-quality audio products. The brand was a breakout success, introducing a whole new generation to high-end sound entertainment through its fresh line of premium headphones, earphones and speakers.
The story goes that the founders - Dr Dre and Jimmy lovine - were disappointed with the experience that typical headphones, at the time, gave to music listeners. Their opinion was that the emotion of songs was too often getting lost due to the poor sound quality and capabilities of the audio device - hence, Beats was birthed with the plan to create a headphone range with exceptional audio quality, allowing music lovers to not simply hear but feel the music.
Beats started as, and continues to be, a premium brand. Considered fashion-forward, those in charge of the aesthetics at Beats tend to focus on bold, statement colour schemes and sleek, urban designs - though, since being acquired by Apple, their recent releases have been a lot more neutrally toned than previous models, such as the iconic siren red. Another thing that has changed over the years is that Beats is no longer only available to those with a lot of cash to spare - true, they’re still considered to be of the premium variety with a price tag to match, but there has been a noticeable shift with some of the newer range. For example, the Beats Flex headphones, which are available from the OnBuy store, retail at a more affordable price of just under £50.
Since their initial launch, Beats have continued to make great improvements to their line-up. For example, a popular feature that comes with all of the newer models is that these headphones have a built-in microphone, giving you the ability to handle phone calls whilst out and about. Following Apple’s acquisition, these innovative product updates show no signs of slowing pace.
On the topic of Apple, though AirPods may initially seem an obvious choice for those wanting a pair of headphones to connect to their Apple devices, the fact that Apple is now running Beats makes the Beats headphones range a fantastic option that's perfectly compatible. In fact, the newer Beats headphones contain Apple silicon (either an H1 or W1 chip) Apple AirPods. Beats headphones also go through the same rigorous quality assurance testing as Apple’s own products.
