Dr. Dre at the unveiling of Beats By Dre on October 11, 2011
While fans are still eagerly awaiting Detox, Dr. Dre can at least ensure that when the much-anticipated album does arrive, fans will have a vast array of premium listening options.
Last week, the Good Doctor was in New York along with Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine to unveil the latest Beats by Dre headphone line. While Dre had much to say about the David Guetta-inspired DJ headphone and a wireless set, he seemed particularly fond of the new Beats boombox and iPod dock.
According to Dre, he has a Beatbox in every room of his house and even uses the speakers to judge his studio mixes. "Before now, I've always taken my mixes out to the car and listened to them in the parking lot," the Doc told MTV News. "I still do that, but more so now I'm listening to it on the Beatbox, and I think people should give it at least a listen and check it out and see what it is."Not that his car isn't an option. In April, Beats by Dre announced a partnership with Chrysler, which would place a Beats-designed sound system into the new Chrysler 300S. Ever the pitchman, Dre compared the 300S to a Bentley.
"Yeah, the Chrysler, that sounds incredible," Dre boasted. "They actually pulled the Chrysler up to my driveway and we compared the sound to the stock system that's in the Bentley, and I don't hear the difference."
