Those with a penchant for high-end audio and an obsession with all things hip hop, might wanna take a look at this new 27-inch IPS monitor from HP.

Hip hop you ask?  Dr. Dre is just one of two people behind the Beats brands, and now the company is jamming its speaker tech into one of HP’s monitors, the ENVY 27-inch.  In addition to offering in plane switching for a wide viewing angle that reaches 178-degrees from either direction (above, below, or to the sides), this monitor is said to deliver “music the way the artists intended”.  Color me skeptical, but then again, anything is better than those standard built-in speakers.

You can also expect edge-to-edge glass, a super-slim design (13.95 mm thin at top) and a narrow aluminum base that should play nice with your Mac workstation. And just in case the built-in Beats speakers don’t satiate your audio needs, HP has dropped in a headphone jack, subwoofer and digital audio output.

The Beats HP 27-inch IPS monitor goes on sale February 3rd for $499.99.
