Now that Thanksgiving is over, we are really in the midst of the holiday season-especially with a shorter than normal shopping season. I took a break from most social media, as I like to do when I visit my family. It was nice to just watch movies, eat, and go shopping with my family. I did do some Black Friday shopping and got most of my holiday shopping done this weekend! Today I have another awesome great holiday gift to share with you today that I saw advertised everywhere!
I'm not going to lie, I am not super into entertainment technology-it's just not something I spend a lot of money on. I have a really old big iPod and also an iPod shuffle I use for running. I had been using cheapie headphones until I received some Yurbuds for running last Christmas. I love listening to some good jams during my runs or workouts. Other than that I use a $20 pair of earbuds I bought for listening to music on my phone or computer. One of the hottest products of the past few years has been the Beats by Dre headphones. I was really skeptical of the sound quality of headphones with such a big price tag on them.
Beats not beets! My boyfriend makes this joke all the time.
I love listening to music when travelling, in the car, on my way to work, and when I'm cooking at home. I'm a total music addict,so I was excited to see what all the rage was. I decided to go with the purple Beats by Dre Studio Over-Ear headphones. I was really surprised that the headphones arrived from Staples.com 2 days after my order was placed!
The headphones came folded in a stylish carrying case with a little cleansing cloth, two AAA batteries for the headphones, an audio cable and adapter, and a remote & mic cable. I skimmed through the manual, but it was pretty easy to figure out how to use the headphones and pop in the batteries. I was pleasantly surprised by the Beats by Dre headphones.
Fit: The headphones felt super comfortable on, not too tight and with super plush ear coverings. The fact that they fold up and fit the carrying case made it easy to safely throw them in my bag and take them with me.
Flair: The purple color is so fun and looks great in person. I loved the stylish look of the headphones and accessories. They weren't super big or bulky looking either.
Overall, I was very impressed by Beats by Dre. The headphones made a huge difference in the sound quality compared to my cheapie headphones and laptop speakers. I loved the way they look and all the special features of them. This is a perfect gift for any of the music lovers on your list. Staples is so awesome that they are allowing me to giveaway any pair of Beats by Dre headphones up to $100 to on of my readers!
