Three Signs Your Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones Are Fake


Earlier this week, the New York Post reported that Beats by Dr. Dre headphones are the second-most stolen item in the Big Apple, after iPhones. What some of these petty robbers don’t know, though, is that some of the Beats spotted on train-riders’ ears are not authentic. They’re fakes.

That’s right. Just like Nike sneakers and Louis Vuitton purses, Beats by Dr. Dre headphones are such a hot commodity these days that underground vendors are selling imitations galore. Why is that? While users want the luxury and status the headphones provide, not everyone can afford a $300-$500 pair.

With that in mind, XXL reached out to a source that works closely with the Beats company so we can all learn the tell tale signs that identify a pair of Beats headphones as fake. Pay attention. —Gina Montana
