Talk about your win-win: Cheap headset mocks Beats by Dre headphones, makes donations to charity with every purchase

Headgear started out as April Fool’s gag, stuck around after people started buying them

Beets by OrigAudio

Welp, you can officially file this story under “AWESOME”: The headphones you see above are called “Beets” and they’re by OrigAudio. Originally created as an April Fool’s Day device to mock the super-popular, globally-hated “Beats by Dre” headphones, “Beets” was being positioned as a fashionably unique alternative that is more affordable, more nutritious, and also supports a great cause.

The reason why they’re still around – people actually started buying them.

“Beets” by OrigAudio headphones comes in six colors: black, red, pink, blue, green, and white.

Generously priced at just $25, the headphones feature full stereo sound with outside noise reduction technology, volume control, soft-cushioned ear cups, hard exterior travel case, a 3.5mm jack to hook up with any MP3 playing device, and a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz.

While it’s impressive the amount of technology they were able to pack in to such a low-priced piece of gadgetry, what’s particularly cool about “Beets” is the fact that OrigAudio donates a can of beets to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County with every purchase.

Not sure if being generous and working with a charity is enough to keep the “Beats by Dre” lawyers off OrigAudio’s back, but hey, might as well keep pumping out the product till they come knocking.
