It appears that Monster has knocked it out of the park with their first non-headphone offering in the Beats by Dr. Dre line. Check out the just-announced BeatBox, a stand-alone iPod dock that translates the awesome solo sound experience provided by the entire line of Beats headphones to a room-filling sound experience. Its shape is made to fit snugly in a corner, the speakers angled toward the room. And it includes a multipurpose remote that controls the volume on the BeatBox as well as your iPod and iPhone.
Plus, it's user-friendly: your mobile device's volume is displayed prominently for easy adjusting, and a series of LED lights on the BeatBox acknowledge remote control commands. The BeatBox retails for $450 and is available for preorder now.
