Beats By Dr. Dre in The Chrysler 300S
Beats By Dr. Dre and Chrysler first announced their partnership at the 2011 New York Auto Show. This unique partnership brought a studio quality sound experience to the 2012 Chrysler 300 not just by adding speakers, but by working with music legends to reproduce the way sound is made in the studio. The Chrysler 300s and the Beats By Dr. Dre sound system line represent much of the same things – bold style, strong presence, and even for those who aren’t familiar with audio quality, the Beats audio system sounds amazing!
“Our partnership with the Chrysler Group will set the bar for the way music should be heard in cars,” said Jimmy Lovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen-A&M Records and co-founder of Beats by Dr. Dre. “Beats by Dr. Dre has always been about restoring the emotional music connection between an artist and the listener, and Chrysler vehicles beginning with the Chrysler 300S will let drivers hear music the way the artists intended, replicating the feel and the sound that artists and producers work so hard to achieve.”
Established in 2006, Beats Electronics was founded by the legendary rapper and producer Dr. Dre and Chairman of Interscope Geffen-A&M Records, Jimmy Lovine. With the intention to replicate the full experience of sound that music artists and producers hear in recording studios, the Beats By Dr. Dre headphones concept was born. In 2008, Beats partnered is Monster Cable – an audio and video component manufacturer, which developed and debuted its first product, Beats By Dr. Dre Studio Headphones. Today, Beats Electronics has grown into a billion dollar empire with their numerous partnerships, including the Chrysler LLC.
“Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine have built their careers on revolutionary and forward thinking decisions that formulate trends in music, popular culture and technology,” said Oliver Francois, president and CEO, Chrysler Brand. “Our goal in partnering with Beats by Dr.Dre is to revolutionize the expectations for audio quality in an automobile, establishing a new bar in sound that comes closer than ever before to replicating the recording studio sound of professionals like Dr. Dre and Jimmy for drivers of the new Chrysler 300S.”

What makes Beats audio in the Chrysler 300S the best? “It’s a combination of amplifying, tuning, then it’s the stereo,” said Iovine. “We’re great sandwich makers, we just know how to put all the pieces together to make them feel and sound great. That’s the truth.”
