I know those headphones!
So what was the fight about?
Money obvs, and the usual: he says, he says. A guy called Steve Lamar said he took the idea of a celebrity-endorsed headphone brand to Dre and Iovine in 2006 and Beats Electronics was founded. The first Beats headphones were released two years later.
Which the court awarded him?
So Dr Dre and Iovine must be really upset?
But they still run Beats Electronics...
Actually Apple bought them for a whopping £2.3bn, the largest acquisition in its history, back in 2014, which is why they are both so rich.
And are Beats still best-sellers?
When I looked this week they weren't even among Amazon's top 20 best selling headphones and earphones. Audiophiles say they're all style and no substance. Their reputation took a bashing when the New York Times revealed they cost as little as £10 to make after an engineer dismantleda pair - the packaging cost about half as much (£5.30) as the actual headphones.
So those big headphones, à la Beats, are over?
Ova guys. The global market for headphones is £6 billion and earbuds are now 60% of that. Today it's all about the bluetooth earbud that hangs around your neck and magnetically clips together like a weird necklace.
Beats sell just such earbud headphones - they cost £129.99.
Imagine how much they truly cost to make...
