One Direction have their own headphones coming out
One Direction’s faithful Directioners will be clamoring to get their hands on a pair of the pink and white and bedazzled headphones that will be branded with the lads’ likeness.
has delivered an exclusive first look at the band’s headphones, which will presumably go head-to-head with the Beats by Dre headphones, marketed by Dr. Dre.
One Direction’s headphones - blatantly designed to be appealing to pre-teen and teenaged girls - will hit shelves in the near future with a modest price tag of $19.99, a far cry from the hundreds of dollars some have shelled out for Beats by Dre.
Behind the upcoming marketing assault from One Direction is Jazwares, who are also designing and releasing 1D merchandise that includes speakers, microphones, earbuds, walkie-talkies, alarm clocks, boomboxes and karaoke machines.
"With more than 3 million Twitter followers and a debut album that has gone gold and platinum across the globe, it's clear that the guys from One Direction are superstars that tween and teen fans can't get enough of," says Laura Zebersky, executive vice president of sales at Jazwares.
"We are thrilled to add One Direction to our portfolio, and look forward to developing our program with the band to bring personal and innovative electronics to their millions of fans."
