LeBron James x Beats by Dre
Not simply content with being hailed as the new Michael Jordan after a headband-losing, career-defining turn during Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals (a comparison which has served as a blessing and a burden for years) Miami Heat superstar LeBron James is now turning his hand to designing fashion accessories.
Following in the footsteps of celebrated rapper, producer and Beats Electronics founder Dr. Dre, James has created a limited edition range of high-tech, durable and incredibly good looking earphones for the active music fanatic.
Having earned himself the nickname of ‘King James’ owing to his powerful, dominant style on the basketball court and a reputation as a quirky fashion icon off the court, James seems the obvious choice for such a collaboration. The Powerbeats that have resulted from this powerhouse team-up are a robust, mighty, in-ear bud-style earphone with a rubber over-the-ear hook for added stability and support – perfect for active lifestyles and sports.
Inspired by a plethora of broken earbuds sacrificed to the Gym Gods during James’ heavy workout sessions, these earphones are designed to withstand heavy impact and resist removing themselves from the wearer’s ears during periods of heavy movement. All this without sacrificing the superior sound quality that consumers have come to expect from the ever-popular Beats brand.
Available in eight different colour ways and featuring a remote/microphone for use in conjunction with smart phones as well as an extra extension cord for buyers with a height to match or rival James’ own 6’8″ frame, the LeBron James Powerbeats are on sale now on the Beats by Dre website.
