Beats by Dr Dre has announced a new set of headphones
designed specifically for DJs, having teamed up with world-renowned music
producer and disc jockey, David Guetta.
Teaming up with famous names from the music industry seems to becoming ubiquitous for headphone manufacturers these days, and one company has decided that one famous name just isn’t enough.
Already with Dr. Dre on the books, Beats Electronics has now teamed up with world famous disc jockey David Guetta. The Beats mixr headphones, called the “ultimate weapon of
choice for DJs” by Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine, promise to handle the highest
sound level without compromising the “ultra crisp sonic technology expected
from all Beats by Dr. Dre products.”
The most obviously DJ-specific addition to the Beats mixr
headphones is the ability to swivel the ear cup 180 degrees in order to listen
to the exterior environment while mixing. They have been designed with very loud
environments in mind, according to the company.
Speaking about the collaboration, Guetta said: “Our vision
was to create the perfect world class headphone for DJs and music lovers alike
and the outcome is truly amazing. The sound is better than anything I’ve
experienced before because it doesn’t distort no matter what volume I am
playing music at. They’re easy to travel with because they’re so light and
The Beats mixr will be available in the UK this October in HMV stores and
will come with a suggested retail price of £249.95.
