Beats by Dr. Dre Beatbox Portable From Monster

PC Magazine
19 April 2012
  • Conclusion: The powerful, portable Beats by Dr. Dre Beatbox Portable From Monster offers solid audio performance, but suffers from excessive hiss at higher volumes.
  • Pros: Powerful audio output with deep bass response. Streams via Bluetooth, but also has dock for iPhones and Pods. Portable, with built in handles for easy carrying.
  • Cons: Runs on six D cell batteries. Audible hiss when at maximum, regardless of Bluetooth device volume. Just the slightest hint of distortion at maximum volume on deep bass tracks.

Beatbox by Dr. Dre from Monster

PC Magazine
22 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Beatbox by Dr. Dre is Monster's first foray into the realm of iPod speaker docks, and while there are some glaring omissions for such an expensive dock, the fabulous audio quality makes up for it.
  • Pros: The most powerful iPod dock we've tested. Does not distort, even at high volume levels. Intense bass response. Wedge-shaped design fits in room corners. A port exists for wireless streaming—but it's not yet activated.
  • Cons: Remote lacks full iPod navigation. Very expensive. No playback controls on dock itself. No video out for iPod. Speaker grille should be more stable.

Monster Beats By Dr.Dre Beatbox review

Stuff.tv
16 June 2011
  • Summary: Different people want different things from an iPod dock. Some want a delicately balanced soundstage that can recreate the harp string plucks from The Blue Danube as if you were sitting amongst the orchestra. Others want volume and bass that can smash down walls and replicate a club sound in the back bedroom of a 1930s semi. Guess which the Beats by Dr Dre Beatbox does?

  • Summary: В России ситуация с Beatbox такова, были ограниченные поставки в одной из сетей, где систему продавали почти по двадцать тысяч рублей. Говорят, устройство разошлось быстро. Благо, в Москве все больше людей интересуется техникой серии Beats by Dr.Dre, уже появляются коллекционеры. И я могу понять этих людей - конечно, аудиофилы обязательно найдут что-то лучше и осудят траты денег на стильные игрушки.

  • Pros: basses puissantes et agressives, son global satisfaisant.
  • Cons: peu de réglages disponibles.

Monster Beats by Dr. Dre Beatbox iPod Dock: teurer Klangwürfel mit gigantischem Bass

CNET
2 December 2010
  • Summary: “People aren’t hearing all the music” – “Die Menschen hören nicht die ganze Musik”. Dieses Zitat von Dr. Dre begrüßt uns, als wir auf der Monster-Homepage nach Produktinformationen zum iPhone-Lautsprecher mit dem komplizierten Namen Monster Beats by Dr. Dre Beatbox iPod Dock suchen. Gemeint sind wohl feine Nuancen, die bei billiger Audiohardware verlorengehen.
  • Pros: kompaktes System mit gigantischem Sound, genug Leistung für große Räume, minimalistisches, schickes Design, hochwertige Verarbeitung, monströser Bass
  • Cons: Bass bringt Umgebung zum vibrieren, dürftige Ausstattung, kein integrierter Akku, Drahtlosmodul separat erhältlich, teuer
