Beats Audio: Coming to a Windows Phone near you?

Beats Audio: Coming to a Windows Phone near you?This'll be music to the ears of HTC's Windows Phone users - the Taiwanese are apparently spreading the love following their investment in Beats Electronics and giving Beats Audio to Windows Phone users too.

The rumour is that the likes of the Vigor and Runnymede (or Bass, if you prefer) - both incoming WP devices - will be boasting a Beats Audio sticker.

HTC has, of course, got a long history of making Windows devices - indeed, that's where it made its name by providing Microsoft powered handsets with network brandings.

But while it's kept its hand in, recent years have seen a tip in the balance towards Android and HTC Sense customisations with a Google flavour.

Yet even though the Sensation XE looks to be the new flagship Android device for HTC, it's also churning out WP7 babies like there's no tomorrow. So while the Sensation XE gets Beats earphones and the technology built in, there is no need for WP users to feel unloved just yet.

We're waiting to hear more but in the meantime, wouldn't it be great if HTC was to leak some of the info? Not that it would ever do that, of course...

I don't get beats audio?its sound by a ex-con gangster rapper from the hood that glamorises violence and killing through his music so what makes him and expert on "quality" music...If I want real quality sound I think of Bose or Bang & Olufsen and THX..people who buy into Beats Audio obviously don't have a clue!

Julias, I couldn't agree more. Dr.Dre is just the same as every other violence glorifying ex-gangster rapper, he's just older than most of the others. Beats Audio basically involves over-doing the bass and ignoring the rest of the sound range, bit like a headphone version of the sound system in a Chav's Vauxhall Corsa, 15" Subwoofer and ignore the rest. I'll stick with B&O and Bose, for true quality sound. THX have put their name to way to much not so great stuff, these days :(....shame...

so what your saying is the name needs a rebrand?

may i suggest smith beats?

with will smith or willow smith as front man/woman...

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:02

I'm saying they're just not good sound, they're just bass overload IMO.

And they need a less "gangster", name behind them, unless HTC are going for the Chav audience, specifically.

Julias  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:04

THX may have done that but that doesn't change the fact they produce excellent audio I would like to see more phones THX certified the top brands don't seem to go with THX for some reason?

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:07

Maybe because the top brands feel they'd be cheapened by going with THX certification which as, sadly, gained a reputation for being on some not so top draw products :(, I really don't know though, that's just my best guess haha :D.

Treab  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:17

matt... i think you have lost it bro...

Julias  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:19

Matt I've only ever seen THX certification on high end audio products and surround sound systems such as Onkyo I've yet to see THX on mainstream consumer products so its still quite exclusive.

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:26

@Treab, so's "word" :p....awful joke, I know...

@Julias, it's still a good certification undoubtedly, but do B&O etc, really need it? I respect them without it, I'd love to replace my Bose system with a B&O...shame I'm not a millionaire haha :D!

Treab  Sep. 22, 2011 at 23:32
