Two years ago, iconic Hip Hop producer Dr. Dre revolutionized a new revenue stream for artists when he teamed with Monster to make the Beats By Dr. Dre headphones and subsequent earbuds. Now the Compton, California legend and the electronics company have diversified their line to include a music device dock.
Called The Beatbox, the Monster-manufactured, Dr. Dre-endorsed console sells for MFSP of $449 and is compatible for both iPods and iPhones, promising to cancel out noise-interference experienced with existing consoles. PC magazine has reviewed the product, heralding Dr. Dre's Beatbox with an "editor's choice" rating.
Other artists to endorse headphones with Monster include Diddy and Lady Gaga.
