HP Envy 27-Inch IPS Monitor

HP officials say this 27-inch standalone monitor with Beats Audio technology was developed collaboratively with Beats by Dr. Dre. Beats technology is more often featured in HTC smartphones, since HTC is a part owner of Beats. The monitor's speakers are angled upward, for sound quality that HP says is closer to what artists intended.
