Victoria Azarneka, in action a few weeks ago, at the French Open, wears Powerbeats by Dr. Dre before all her tennis matches. I first noticed this before the 2012 US Open Tennis Championship match, when they always show the players inside just before their pre-match interview. I’m expecting that she will do the same today [this is an update to the post as of Sep 8th, 2013] in her fina (once again) with Serena Williams (once again). I’ve seen her with these a few more times since then with the same Powerbeats hook-over-the-ear type of in-ear headphones. Here is what I wrote at the time by way of description of these Powerbeats.
Add Victoria Azarenka to the list of athletes who wear Dr. Dre headphones. At the 2012 US Open, it was very clear to see that she was wearing Powerbeats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Headphones during her pre-match interview for both the semi-finals on Friday and the finals on Sunday. The thing that is different about these though, is that they are more like ear buds than headphones. I really like this type of headphone because they allow you to go jogging without falling out of your ears like regular ear buds. And it would be pretty awkward to jog with full-on headphones.
The Powerbeats provide the same great audio quality as the full-sized headphones in the Dr. Dre line, the Beats by Dr. Dre. Plus unlike most ear bud type phones, these offer ControlTalk for on-cable iPod/iPhone control.
