Beats Electronics

Beats Electronics is an American producer of audio products headquartered in Culver City, California, U.S. The company was founded by rapper and hip-hop producer Andre "Dr. Dre" Young and Interscope-Geffen-A&M Records chairman Jimmy Iovine.

For a period, the company was majority-owned by Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC—the company reduced its stake to 25% in 2012, and sold its remaining stake back to the company in 2013; concurrently, Carlyle Group replaced HTC as a minority shareholder, alongside Dr. Dre and Iovine, in late 2013.
