Do not ask trendy headphone-wearers what they've got wrapped around their ears. Ask who.
monster beats by dre the celeb-on-the-head movement a few years ago with its Beats byDr. Dreseries. The Dre endorsement somehow persuaded a young and well-financed demographic once perfectly content with Apple's standard-issue ear buds to invest $300 in over-the-top (and over-the-head) headphones.
Monster's new-issue headphones have been Beats-free. Instead, its tie-ins have been much lower profile (and maybe lower cost on the endorsement residuals). The $229 Gratitude headphones, which are actually in-ear monitors bathed in rose and gold, were designed with Earth Wind and Fire. "Gratitude" was a double album in 1975.

The N-Ergy NCredibles, in-ear headphones endorsed by host and s husband , are among the least costly celeb-affiliated at $69. An on-ear version, the N-Tune, costs $129.
The $279 Diamond Tears-Edge headphones, a tie-in with Korean record label JYP (home of the Wonder Girls), looks like a diamond-bling ear treatment.
iHip: of"Jersey Shore" fame is the name behind a pair of cheap headphones with splashes of glittery faux-diamond plastic or leopard print? Cool!
House of Marley:The House, whose products "embody" the vision of Jamaican singer-songwriter-icon , looks like it's serious about the new $299 TTR headphones. They're built with recyclable aluminum and stainless steel, with leather ear cups and 40 millimeter moving-coil drivers in an aluminum enclosure.
Logic3:If it's speed you're looking for, British manufacturer Logic3 makes a quick sell with its Ferrari-brand headphones, due in April. The Cavallino Collection is the luxury series patterned after Ferrari's GT cars, the Scuderia Collection for F1 racing fans.
Soul By Ludacris:The collaboration between the hip-hop mogul and Soul Electronics includes 2012 updates: the $300 SL300 noise-cancellation headphones in gold chrome, the $200 SL150 high-definition headphones in silver chrome and a pair of ear buds, the SL49 ($70) and SL99 ($100) available in new colors.
SMS Audio Co.:The rapper/investor started his own company — Fiddy, naturally, is the chief executive — to market his line of headphones. Eventually, SMS will also sell iPod speaker docks, home-audio systems and professional audio equipment.
The former knows the celeb-endorsement game, having run out Power Cologne and Street King energy shot.
Last year, he was ready to announce a pair of wireless headphones using high-quality Kleer technology, but the deal with Sleek Audio died. Now he's back with his company and its first products, two headphones and a pair of ear buds.
The most intriguing, the wireless Sync by 50 ($400), shows that 50 Cent actually cares about sound. The headphones produce 16-bit loss-less sound over a Kleer wireless connection. That means if you have CD-quality music on your iPhone, it will not lose fidelity on its way to the headphones. (Bluetooth-equipped headphones cannot accomplish that.)
The Kleer technology, with its 50-foot range using the Sync's transmitter, is party-ready: Up to four listeners can join.
iHome:The low-glamour relationship with the New Balance sneaker company continues with, among others, the $100 NB500B, a behind-the-neck sports earphone with Bluetooth technology for wireless calls and music. The NB500B has an eight-hour rechargeable battery.
Griffin Technology:In the year's most colorful collaboration, themed headphones and ear buds called MyPhones come in four colors, three sizes of ear bud tips and a crayon-shaped carry case.
Note to parents: The MyPhones include a volume-limit feature to ensure your kids will not be exposed to dangerously high sound levels. The headphones play no louder than 85 decibels, the maximum suggested by several health organizations.
