“My mother played music for me as a child, and I grew up loving the way music made me fee,” said Combs. “It brought out joy and pain. It was my first career, my first love. No matter how many roads I travel, my heart always takes me back there. Music is my life, and Diddy Beats is an expression of how great sound makes me feel.”
Featuring a sleek black and silver chrome finish as well as a high-tech aluminum, the leather-wrapped Diddy Beats headphones will be available in black and white for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $179.95. A release date has yet to be set.
