Special Raffle Prize


Beats by Dr. Dre Studio Over-Ear Black Headphones. Thick foam, which is washable, surrounds the ear cups to shut out external noise and highlight bass frequencies, without using any noise cancellation frequencies or other amplifications that might add distortion to the sound. Powerful enough to block out a jet engine. Powered by a pair of AAA batteries, the noise cancellation feature in a pair of Beats Studio headphones amplifies the music as it blocks out noise, giving you consistently powerful and intense sound.
