HP’s Beats Audio: Explained

Not all audio is created equal. The Beats audio implementations on HP PCs just sound better than the competition. It’s not just me saying stuff like that. So, while I have beaten that drum time and time again, I wanted to actually talk to the REALexperts about the subject. Victor Lee (His official title: PC, Audio and Video Technologist) took some time to speak with us to help explain in more detail about how Beats Audio works in HP computers.

Simple Wireless Audio Streaming? Yes, Please!

If you don’t know about our Wireless Audio unit, here’s the deal: You get a receiver and a USB dongle in the set.  With external speakers plugged into the bar of soap-sized receiver and the USB transmitter dongle connected to your PC you can broadcast the music to any of the 4 speakers connected to the receiver right from your PC.  There is no lag in the sound and the software needed is easily downloadable and super user-friendly, and you can be up to 100 feet away.  Find out why Greta's sister swiped one to use for herself.

Two Parties, One Night

timbaland In the words of the Black Eyed Peas, last night was a good, good night. It kicked off with a little surprise for the 2010 graduating class at Culver City High School. More than three hundred seniors showed for up what they thought was a run-of-the-mill graduation party. Instead they were greeted by rapper-producers Dr. Dre and Timbaland. The surprise performance was a gift from HP, Interscope Records and Beats by Dr. Dre. HP has been collaborating with Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine to produce Beats Audio, a sound system featured on the HP ENVY 15 Beats Special Edition, HP ENVY notebooks and several other premium HP systems.
