We were watching the Pittsburgh Pirates take on the Los Angeles Dodgers game tonight when one of those cool inside the clubhouse specials came on the ROOT Sports coverage.
It was a piece about something very cool that Pirates All-Everything centerfielder Andrew McCutchen did for his teammates. Cutch bought everyone on the team Dr. Dre ”BeatsByDre” headphones.
You have seen them, hell you probably got a pair or two. There is a pretty cool story behind his product too. We grabbed this off the website.
After 25 years, Dr. Dre was tired of spending months on a track only to have his fans hear it on weak, distorting earbuds. Two years and hundreds of prototypes later, Beats Studio headphones are the icons that bring you sound the way it was originally intended.
That’s cool. It must be nice to have Andrew McCutchen as a teammate. The story didn’t say which model Cutch purchased for his teammates, but we see them starting at three bills. Shit, they are powerful enough to block out a jet engine and simple enough to be powered by a pair of AAA batteries, but it makes me wonder if Dre and his team are able to design something so bad ass, how hard is it to spell the name of your customer, who just happens to be a superstar?
