Sean 'Diddy' Combs has joined forces with the successful Beats by Dr. Dre range to launch the Diddybeats in-ear headphones

From hi-fi buffs to footballers, the Beats by Dr. Dre range of headphones from Monster and Dr. Dre has built-up quite a following since its inception in 2006.

And now Sean 'Diddy' Combs – once known as Puff Daddy – has joined the party with his Diddybeats earphones, now available to buy in the UK for £140.

More than just a celebrity tie-in, we've been mightily impressed with the members of the Beats by Dr. Dre range that we've heard so far, and the Diddybeats promise to keep up the good work.

'Head Monster', Noel Lee said: “The goal of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones has always been to bring serious music listeners a new way to enjoy truly great sound.

With Diddybeats, we were fortunate to be able to work with Diddy, one of the world's most meticulous recording artists, to fine-tune the sound, and the results are nothing less than astounding."

Well, he would say that. The Diddybeats come with a travel case and selection of ear tips, and are also available with the Monster ControlTalk headphone cable, which sports a remote and mic for hands-free calls.

The Diddybeats are available in the UK at a suggested retail price of £140.
