Beats by Dr. Dre are most famous for celebrities, DJ’s and singers. These headphones became a strong household name for celebrities and commoners alike. However, Beats aren’t just for stars, singers, DJ’s and commoners but athletes are joining the bandwagon too. Curious? Here are 15 athletes who love to wear Beats by Dre headphones.
15. Neymar. Yeah. The soccer player. Neymar is a constant feature on numerous Beats commercials. He’s also very loyal to his brand endorsement and defying the FIFA World as a proof of that loyalty. How? He wore it during the World Cup when it was so clear that they banned wearing Beats because they had a deal with Sony. Talking about a real bad-ass.
14. Lebron James. Lebron isn’t just the King of the NBA, but he’s also Beats very first athlete endorser.
Helping the company rise from startup to a trendsetter by wearing the brand’s headphones in nearly every public appearance he’s in over the last few years.
