50 cent selling headphones

Looks like Dr. Dre's 'Beats' headphones MAY have some competition.

50 Cent and Sleek Audio are launching a new pair of $350 wireless headphones, which the rapper presented at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Here's what he had to say about his new venture:

"I see everyone, not just my fans, enjoying the music. Music is the language of love. Music can break language barriers."

Would U drop $350 for Fiddy's headphones? Or are U loyal to Team Dre?

    neither. Any audiophile knows that headphones released to the consumer such as beats by dre and bose (these ones also, guranteed) are nothing but over priced pieces of plastic with a big brand name. Beats by dre, are ok at best, but definetly does not reflect its price and neither will these. These headphones are catered to the general consumer who does not know any better and are tricked into thinking they have the best headphones on the market, when in reality other companies out there that are catered to knowledgeable audio enthusiasts blow the doors off any of these companies that sell the products at their local best buy. Same goes for mp3 players! Ipods and zunes have a nice interface, but are unmatched in sound quality by smaller companies not bent on world domination such as cowon.

    I just don't see how throwing 50 into the mix suddenly makes the product worth $350. Did he design them? Did he produce them? Did he get involved with the technical aspects and electronics? Was he even a consultant? Highly doubt it. If I stretch my mind I can understand Dre pushing headphones because of his history as a producer and DJ, he probably has a legitimate ear for sound quality but 50? I can't see any reason other than marketing ploys. Oh well, I don't blame 50 for making money, not that he needs anymore.

    @anon83 DUDE HAS IT SPOT ON. DR DRE BEATS AND 50 HALF PENNIES BRANDS ARE NOTHING BUT OVER PRICED JACKED UP SHIT TO PAY THE CELEBS. NOT EVEN WORTH ANYTHING HALF THE MONEY THEY CHARGE. IN FACT PC MAG RATES DR DRE'S BEATS HEADFONES AS AVERAGE TO SUB-PAR. THEY ARE MONSTER BRANDED HEADFONES (YEA THE DUDES WHO MAKE STEREO CABLES, LOL) NOT EXACTLY CUSTOM MADE INDUSTRY SPECS BY DR DRE HIMSELF WHICH IS WHAT PEEPS THINK. IN FACT LOWER PRICED SENNHEISER HEADFONES AND EAR BUDS OUTPERFORM DR DRE BEATS SHIT AND GOT EDITORS CHOICE ACROSS THE BOARD. I USE THEM, MUCH BETTER THAN DR DRE, ER I MEAN… MONSTER BRANDED HEADFONES. NEXT.

    Re: perezh223

    Thank you. Agreed. I'm gay and no fan of 50 but I hate the "N" word with a passion.

    ok why do these celebrities insist on putting out products that they know DAM well their target market cant afford? whats the point? i mean i understand that lil nigg@ needs to make his money but why give it an expensive sellin price? maybe if u focused less on how good expensive things are and focused more on puttin a product thats affordable so that more peopel can buy it? wouldnt that make more sense? whatever. celebrities are a pain on the ass for me

    Re: perezh223 – Well that is what he is for charging so much for headphones. He has no problem using the N word so I guess I can use it to!
