Dr. Dre is one of raps biggest innovators , now he has taken hip hop to the realm of technology. Last year Dre partnered with music mogul Jimmy Iovine to introduce Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, in partnership with Monster Cable this venture was extremely successful. Now, he is stepping it up to high tech personal computers. The HP Envy 15 Beats limited-edition laptop is set to arrive October 22 and will feature the same technology applied to Beats by Dre headphones. The black notebook computer — retailing at $2,299 — will come bundled with mixing software and a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. Fellow producers Timbaland, Polow Da Don, Pharrell Williams and Will.I.Am also helped fine-tune the machine’s sound.
“Sound is the heartbeat of music,” Iovine told MTV News about their latest collabo. “And Dre is the heartbeat of sound. He set the standard for many, many people.”
“If I spend a year in the studio and spend all this time tweaking [my production] and making sure it sounds right, my main concern is for you to hear it the way it should sound,” Dre explained to MTV News. “The way it was meant for you to hear it.”
