Beats by Dre headphones are reportedly a popular target for thieves and muggers in New York City today. How can you avoid becoming a victim?

  • If you must buy headphones, don't pay several hundred dollars for headphones that aren't objectively very good.
  • If you pay hundreds of dollars for your headphones, make sure they don't have any easily identifiable markings on the outside that would alert thieves to that fact.
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Don't wear headphones.

It's not so hard.
