Beats by Dr. Dre Beatbox Portable audio system is coming to an AT&T store near you for $399

Beats by Dr. Dre Beatbox Portable audio system is coming to an AT&T store near you for $399
AT&T is sure to drop the beats when the HTC One X is finally released, but as we anticipate its eventual arrival, AT&T is moving forward in getting ready for the big day. From the looks of its all, the carrier is expected to start selling the Beats by Dr. Dre Beatbox Portable audio system starting this upcoming Sunday, March 11th.

Donning a premium price of $399 in-stores or through its web site, there’s no kidding that it’ll put a dent in your pockets, but it’s hardly a surprise considering these are Beats by Dr. Dre. To spread the word about its upcoming availability, this boom-boom-powered audio system will be featured on the March 14th episode of American Idol with Beats co-founder, Jimmy Iovine on hand.

Well, part of the reason why it’s incredibly priced is the fact that it features robust sounds with professional-grade sound engineering to replicate the audio experience intended by the artist. Of course, it’ll go well with the HTC One X, well, whenever it decides to show its face around these parts. In the meantime however, HTC Vivid owners will also be able to enjoy this beast as well when its Android 4.0 update is pushed out – thus, bringing Beats by Dr. Dre audio profiles to the handset.

In addition to packing a built-in dock connector for smartphones and other portable music players, it also boasts Bluetooth connectivity for a wireless experience. Interestingly enough, you’ll need to rely on good old wall power to juice this bad boy up, but if you prefer an untethered option, there’s always the solution of loading SIX D-cell batteries into it. Aside from this behemoth, AT&T intends on carrying other Beats by Dr. Dre accessories such as the $99 UR Beats in-ear headphones, $200 Beats Solo HD Headphones, and the $280 Wireless HD Stereo Bluetooth Headphones.
