Our take on the Beats by Dr. Dre™ Beatbox Portable™

by Ralph Graves
Beats
Dr Dre Beatbox Portable

Want a portable speaker system that can party as hard as you can? Then check out the Beatbox Portable. It's designed to go just about anywhere and pump out the tunes with clean highs and killer bass. And because it has Bluetooth, you can wirelessly play songs from your smartphone, tablet, or other Bluetooth-enabled portable device through the system.

Big, bold sound

Tuned to the exacting specification of hip hop producer Dr. Dre, the Beatbox Portable gives you the hard-hitting sound reminiscent of a nightclub — just what the doctor ordered. You'll hear crisp  highs, full mids, and of course, lots of bass. The angled sides of the Beatbox Portable are there for a reason — you can angle the system into a corner and let the walls reinforce the lows. Now you've really got the bass pumping.

Dr Dre Beatbox Portable

Bluetooth option

You can wirelessly stream music from your Bluetooth-enabled portable from up to 30 feet away. And that includes both Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. The Beatbox is compatible with Bluetooth aptX® technology, which lets you stream CD-quality sound from compatible devices.

More party favors

Convenient carry handles built into the cabinet make the Beatbox Portable easy to grab and go. The system comes with an AC wall adapter. Or go old-school and pop six “D” cell batteries for up to 15 hours of operation. A recessed dock lets you connect most  iPods and iPhones directly to the Beatbox Portable — and charges your player when connected to an AC outlet. The system also comes with a remote, and an auxiliary input so you can play other portable devices.
