Yesterday, we posted on a rumor that HTC could soon be doing away with their Beats Audio commitment, severing ties with Dr. Dre n’ friends. The news came after a few signs that the love affair had turned sour, namely, HTC no longer bundling Beats headphones with with future handsets and soon after, giving up their controlling stake in the company.
Well, I guess we can officially put those rumors to rest thanks to a statement from HTC’s Global Online Communications Manager releasing this statement on HTC’s behalf,
HTC remains strongly committed to Beats Audio and including their innovation in our devices. Any rumor of HTC no longer integrating Beats Audio into our devices is categorically false.
There it is, straight from the horses mouth. Rest easy, knowing Beats Audio isn’t going anywhere anytime soon… at least not from HTC’s devices.
