We go ears and measurement microphones on with headphones from Dr. Dre, Quincy Jones, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Ludacris, Bob Marley, and Miles Davis
The success of Dr. Dre's Beats sent up a signal flare that alerted the rest of the celebrigentsia — who've realized that there's no safe money in music anymore — that there was cash to be had in them thar ‘phones. They've since had at it in a big way, with everyone from Justin Bieber to Quincy Jones to the estates of Miles Davis and Bob Marley slapping their names on hardware.
But are any of these headphones any good? We set out to figure out which — if any — of these celebs deserve your hard-earned dollars. We called in a team of expert listeners to pick 'em apart, and then put each headphone through some rigorous lab testing to figure out what was really going on underneath those fancy designs.
