Monster announced the Beatbox digital sound system and iPod speaker dock that expands the Beats experience from individual enjoyment of high-end audio quality to a social experience — one that lets users literally “bring the party home,” unleashing the driving bass, lush midrange, and soaring highs of a multi-speaker club system in one amazing compact and portable box. Beatbox is the first non-headphone product from the Beats by Dr. Dre line of products.
“A party in a box”, the Beatbox, brings iPod and iPhone® music to life in an astounding new way. The product features innovative digital amplification circuitry for jaw dropping performance, with proprietary dual 5.25-inch long throw bass drivers for superior bass reproduction and two optimized 2-inch concave high frequency drivers for precise soundstaging. The Beatbox plays all styles of music effortlessly, and is engineered to handle the most demanding sonic challenges, including hip-hop.
To create the uniquely stylish Beatbox, the Beats by Dr. Dre team continued its long term development collaboration with renowned San Francisco-based industrial design firm Ammunition and its founder Robert Brunner. The result is a product that offers the ultimate in aesthetic form-meets-function. With its sleek black trapezoidal shape, the simple yet elegant Beatbox is designed to be the center of the party. The iconic shape even lets users place the Beatbox in a corner and still enjoy room-filling sound, with incredibly powerful bass. The cabinet features a rugged ABS housing in a subtle black-on-black color scheme with an easy to carry ergonomically designed handle for easy, comfortable portability. The top surface has a soft touch finish and the speaker grill is made of steel with a semi-gloss black finish. The Beatbox also features tactile silicone rubber for the power button, volume knob, and feet. The BeatBox presents a stunning minimalist aesthetic combined with superior audio performance to truly set the design benchmark in portable audio
