World Cup bans Beats by Dre headphones

Two weeks ago, Beats by Dre released a star-studded, five-minute video that served as both a commercial and World Cup tuneup.

Well, despite the fact that Neymar, Jozy Altidore, Luis Suarez and other soccer stars appear in the video, they will not be wearing their Beats by Dre during the World Cup.


Because of FIFA’s licensing deal with Sony, players cannot wear the Beats by Dre headphones in stadiums when they are at Cup matches or media events.

On the bright side, Sony gave all players a free set of headphones.
