Music is an essential part of an athlete's life.
They listen to it when they travel.
They listen to it when the train.
And they listen to it before games to help get them in the zone.
When it comes to headphones, Beats By Dre products seem to be the dominant choice of pro athletes. Initially created by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, Beats headphones tend to emphasize bass and have a reputation for making hip-hop and pop music sound particularly crisp.
If you ever see a shot of NFL or NBA players going through their pre-game routines, there's a good chance you'll see a pair of Beats By Dre headphones adorning their ears.
Just how much do athletes love these headphones?
In 2014, a number of NFL players knowingly incurred $10,000 fines when they rocked Beats prior to games, which was a violation of the league's exclusive agreement with Bose.
The company also counts a massive amount of star athletes among their endorsers, including LeBron James, James Harden, Neymar Jr., Harry Kane, Tom Brady, Conor McGregor and Serena Williams.
