After the success of Dr. Dre's first line of customized headphones, the mega producer and Interscope labelhead Jimmy Iovine are preparing the release of "Beats by Dr. Dre Tour" beginning this month.
Being scheduled as a pre-launch market introduction, the new portable, in-ear headphones will carry many of the same sound features as the original edition but is tuned with enhanced audio clarity and a deep bass punch.
Additional details surounding the headphones include clearer natural vocals, detailed highs and an exclusive In-Ear Noise Isoloation set-up to help reduce external noise. It will also come equipped with five custom-fit eartip sizes.
With limited quantities being released, only select retailers will offer the specialty item including the Apple Store, Amazon.com and beatsbydre.com.
"Beats by Dr. Dre Tour" will be priced for $149.95 and available around mid-December.
In related news, the mega producer's forthcoming album will likely be completed early next year.
According to Billboard, Iovine justified Dre's delay based on his recently production on Eminem's Relapse project.
"Dre had to stop making his album to finish Eminem's album," Iovine told Billboard. "Dre's going back in in January. He'll be finished with Eminem by then, and he'll finish his album."
