It looks like Beats Audio maybe severing ties with HTC. According to the Wall Street Journal , the creators of Beats headphones wants to buy out HTC’s stake in the company.


Co-Founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre have been looking for new investors to help build up enough capital to help expand the company. HTC owns 25% stack in the company and if were to buy them out, the Asian smartphone maker will still have exclusivity as far as being the only smartphone maker to be branded with Beats.
