Over the last few years Beats has acquired a lot of recognition in the entertainment industry as a wide variety of artists use its products. These artists range from Lil Ways to David Guetta and because of these artists using the Beats products; one may find that iconic ‘b’ logo on a variety of headphones used by the hip youth these days. The red of the Beats logo has become as symbolic as the white of the iPods. This was when Beats and Monster was together and both brands formed a formidable force and launched a slew of products under the Beats branding. However, with Monster and Beats failing to renew their contract, both brands are now marketing equipment under their respective banners.
