Another day, another headphone deal by Dr. Dre that makes the whole idea of that damn Detox album ever coming out even more of a pipedream. The smartphone maker has landed a deal with Dr. Dre’s favorite device worth up to $300 million dollars, a smart move considering people are using their handheld device to stream new music & videos. The partnership won’t hinder Dre’s deals with HP & Chrysler who will be using the Beats technology into the sound system for the 2012 Chrysler 300S due in the fall.

The two companies are collaborating on creating high-performance mobile sound products such as HTC devices with built-in Beats sound innovations as soon as this fall.

“The marriage of these two companies is very, very good. We are very good for each other,” says Jimmy Iovine, the chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records and co-founder of Beats By Dr. Dre with rapper/producer Dr. Dre. “With HTC’s innovation, technology and leadership, we feel we can really compete with anybody in this area.”
