Watch Out Dr. Dre, 50 Cent Shows Off New Headphone Line at CES 2012

Dr. Dre has set the trend for quality headphone lines with Beats by Dr. Dre and has inspired rapper 50 Cent to get into the business too. He showed his headphone line, SMS Audio at the Consumer Electronics Show yesterday.

The first models are the wireless Sync by 50 headphones , which run for $399.95  and  the wired Street by 50 headphones  for $299.95.

According to USA Today, 50 Cent gives credit to longtime producer Dr. Dre and his Beats By Dr. Dre headphones as an inspiration and adds branching out into headphones is an example of the way the music business is changing.

It’s no doubt that 50 Cent is a business man and music is a big part of that, but will it compete with Beats by Dr. Dre?

Some proceeds from the headphone sales reportedly will go to anti-hunger charity Feeding America.
