We don’t expect you to shell out hard-earned (or slyly-stolen) cash on headphones just because someone overpaid celebrity signed a contract that allowed their name to be slapped on the earbud. Headphones have to fit a need to be useful. And if you’re looking for workout earbuds, quality headphones to drown-out noise at the office, or a rugged headset that also looks badass, these might fit the bill — regardless of what celebrity’s name is attached to them.
