The device once known as the Runnymede has officially received a new name and a bit of spotlight today. HTC has just unveiled the newly-dubbed Sensation XL at their London Beats event, and the package is just as slick as expected.
As far as its specs are concerned, the Sensation XL matches up nicely with the leaked feature listing first spotted last month. → Read More
No images of the white Beats exist at the moment Three hundred fifty dollars for a set of over-the-ear headphones is a lot whether or not we’re in a recession. But the Beats by Dr. Dre are a great set of cans that don’t need a headphone amp to rattle your noggin. They look great in black, but how much would you pay for a pair of white ones? Monster and some fellow named Ron Herman believe the… → Read More
Samsung pushed out two new music phones this morning. Continuing the name-followed-by-superscript branding idea that began with the Soulb, they’ve dubbed the new handsets Beatb and Beats.

I’ve been wearing them for the past hour and found them on par with the QC3s in terms of noise reduction. → Read More
Dr. Dre and Monster (and Geffen’s Jimmy Iovine) will release THE MOST ADVANCED HEADPHONES EVER on July 25 at Apple retail stores (and online) and Best Buy (and its Web site). The headphones are called Beats, and have been in development for three years, which certainly sounds impressive. Beats are supposed accurately reproduce the entire spectrum of music, just like you would hear in a pair… → Read More
That PSP game decrypter I mentioned earlier today? Well, PlayStation Network Store-exclusive games (like Fl0w and Beats) are now appearing on BitTorrent trackers, fully decrypted and ready to play. I think that took, like, three or four hours. I blacked out the name of the uploader and tracker name, out of deference to the community. Doesn’t really matter since it’s invite-only and… → Read More
