How much do Beats by Dr. Dre cost?
Half a million?
Nope, try $399.95.
But sadly, that’s for headphones of the same name, not an actual beat by the legendary hip hop producer/rapper.
Yes, Dre and Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine teamed up with Monster Cable to unveil a new line of high-end headphones at CES over the weekend that are said to use a new driver technology to provide “remarkably natural sound, incredible transient response and rich, deep bass.”
The duo have been developing the product for the last coupla years in an effort to “allow listeners to experience the full dynamic range, low bass punch and clarity intended by producers.”
The headphones come in a special carrying case with anti-microbial cleaning cloths, a special Monster headphone cable, a mini-stereo to 1/4-inch stereo cable adapter, as well as iSonitalk, a microphone/headphone adapter for iPhones.
It does not, however, comes with a gat or a sack of the chronic.
