In 2006, musician Dr. Dre and entrepreneur/record executive Jimmy Iovine founded Beats, which featured high-end, high-style headphones, ear pods and speakers. Apple bought Beats in 2014, so the headphones now use some of Apple's signature technology, including its audio drivers.
Beats headphones are known for their signature bass-heavy sound that's perfect for hardcore gym workouts. According to Apple, Powerbeats, Powerbeats Pro, Beats Studio Buds, Beats Studio Buds +, and Beats Fit Pro earbuds are all sweat and water resistant (IPX4), but not not sweatproof or waterproof. So if you're going swimming, don't take your Beats into the pool -- you'll want a waterproof device like the IP68-rated Shokz OpenSwim bone conduction headphones for that instead.
