HTC Corp., a leading mobile phone maker, and Verizon Wireless have announced the HTC Rezound. It is claimed to be the only phone in the United States with Beats Audio integration.
A result of the recent partnership between HTC and Beats, the HTC Rezound delivers an entertainment experience with audio and multimedia capabilities highlighted by a 4.3-inch true HD 720p display.
The HTC Rezound, a smartphone that includes the latest HTC Sense experience and access to Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network, will be available exclusively from Verizon Wireless on Nov. 14.
“HTC is dedicated to delivering the latest in sight and sound innovation, and we’re excited to be introducing the first U.S. smartphone featuring Beats Audio technology,” said Peter Chou, CEO, HTC Corp.
“Paired with Verizon Wireless’ blazing-fast 4G LTE network and a robust multimedia experience, the HTC Rezound enables customers to enjoy their favorite music and entertainment on-the-go like never before.”
The phone enables customers to hear music the way the artist intended with unique audio tuning by Beats that delivers thundering bass, soaring midrange and crisp highs, says HTC.
It also includes new lightweight Beats headphones, created to integrate with the Beats audio profile on the device. Hands-free calling is easy with the built-in microphone and the on-cable remote to pause, advance or rewind and answer a call mid-track.
The HTC Rezound will be available beginning Nov. 14 at Verizon Wireless and at Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores for $299.99 with a new, two-year customer agreement.
Established in 2006, Beats Electronics is the brainchild of artist and producer Dr. Dre and chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records Jimmy Iovine, who set out to develop a new type of headphone with the capability to reproduce the full spectrum of sound that musical artists and producers hear in professional recording studios.
