British Olympians get static over Beats by Dre headphones

LONDON — British Olympic chiefs have clamped down on a bit of guerrilla marketing that saw the country’s athletes sporting stylish — but non-sponsor-brand — headphones at the games.
Many athletes use headphones to help keep focused before competitions and several have been photographed wearing the Beats by Dr. Dre brand.
The reason for their popularity? British Olympic officials say batches were shipped to hotels outside London where Team GB athletes were staying
Diver Tom Daley was seen on television wearing them before competing Monday and soccer player Jack Butland tweeted his support for the brand.
