#20 Beats by Dr. Dre

Wow, look at how much Beats by Dr. Dre has blown up. Founded in 2008 by rap artist Dr. Dre, these head phones are seen all over. I feel like I can’t walk anywhere without seeing them. That’s amazing because of how expensive they are. The over the ear headphones start at $200.

It’s crazy how this brand exploded. It’s because of Dr. Dre’s name.

When brands cooperate on a product, one of them can become overshadowed. Beats has accompanied with HP computers and that is a good partnership. Both brands are prominent enough that they don’t over power each other.

Beats Audio totally overpowers HTC. When I first saw this commercial, all I could think about was the Beats in ear headphones. I didn’t even realize it was a commercial for a new phone. In these circumstances, the partnership is completely dominated by one brand and the other is ignored. It’s dangerous for a brand to be in these partnerships. It just nullifies all the work done to create your brand.
