Beats By Dr. Dre

In Las Vegas, at the Consumer Electronics Show, Dr. Dre is shaping the future of how we listen to music writes Matthew Garrahan:

  • Beats by Dr. Dre controlled 70% of the premium headphone market, and 40% of the overall headphone market this Christmas.
  • The brand is now expanding to other products. Beats technology is being integrated into cars and laptops.
  • It is also expanding internationally. Offices have been opened in China and Russia.
  • But perhaps the best indicator of its success is the surge of imitators. Simon Cowell, Tim Tebow and even Snooki have started marketing their own headphone brands.
