$25,000 Beats headphones for Seahawks, Broncos only
Only the two teams battling for the big football title get to sport some highly expensive, blinged-out custom Beats by Dre headphones.
Beats by Dre headphones are hot commodities in the athletic world. One particular style, however, is in very scarce supply because it's only in the hands of Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks players. The special headphones come courtesy of the company as a sort of congratulations present to the two teams that survive the war of attrition that is the NFL season.
Seahawks offensive lineman Michael Bowie tweeted out his thanks for the swag and shared the headphones' $25,000 value with the world. The cans sport an large gold or white-gold logo commemorating this year's big game in New York. There are a few diamonds studded in there, as well, courtesy of Graff Diamonds.
The headphones sport the official name "Beats by Dre x Graff Custom Pro." Outspoken Seahawks cornerback (and Beats endorser) Richard Sherman got to make the official delivery of the yellow-gold versions to his teammates. There's no word on who delivered the Broncos' white-gold models.
A set of headphones is no substitute for a ring, but at least the losing team will be able to keep their fancy earpieces, though they may not want to sport them in the locker room next season. If you want a set of your own, you'll just have to wait until one inevitably comes up on eBay some day in the far future.
