Among the new products released by Monster and Dr. Dre’s Beats this fall are Powerbeats, the signature line of sports headphones worn by none other than LeBron James. Beats by Dr. Dre have become one of the most sought-after headphone brands, and for athletes who need top-quality music resonating in their ears, Powerbeats are a great option.
One interesting feature of the Powerbeats' phones is their flexible ear hooks with adjustable wrap-around arms. These keep the earphones securely in place, allowing you to move freely and jump around without worrying about the buds falling out. Plus, they resist sweat and reflect ultra-violet light, keeping your ears protected while outdoors.
A unique speaker-positioning system and ported driver housing allow you to hear nearby speech and chatter, like from your teammates or coach. Powerbeats' ControlTalk technology, located midway down the wire, lets you search and control your music and talk hands-free (on an iPhone).
Most important, the headphones emit a full spectrum of sound—from the deep bass through the smooth mid-range tones to the crisp highs.
Dr. Dre's headphones will definitely get you moving; the downside is that they're more expensive than most competitive brands.
