these headphones are really good in my opinion but they are expensive, but these seem to be expensive for a reason i think the price was worth it also the version for studio which my brother has need batteries in which isn't good unlike mine (Solo HD) which can be plugged in and you have the music also they are very strong also as the material is plastic it is waterproof and the part that goes on your ears are soft and comfortable.
also they are to section which allow the headphones so they are comfortable which rotated the headphones up to down and side to side.
the other thing is that rubber which is on the inner top of the arc which connects the headphone around the head which keeps them firmly on your head.
One last thing they are made out of durable materials, but if your bother about the global effects it has to be made out of Hydrocarbons which comes from "non-renewable" resources like plastic and you need to use electric or burning (smelting or electrolysis) to make extract the metal,from the Ore so it has a bad global effect, but i if not based on global effects and anything related to that i think these products are very good i would say it a good buy if you listen to 'bass(et)' music but if not standard earphones will do the same job.
Great Design. It doesn't take much effort to find a pair. They really stand out with Hip Hop and Rock but make everything sound richer. As advertised, the cord doesn't get tangled and knotted. Despite this, I assume from other reviews with complaints about shorts developing that you still need to exercise some care and not assume they're indestructible. Also, the superior sound quality is evident immediately. If you don't think they sound great right out of the box then either 1) you don't have them close enough/far enough into your ear canal to get the full effect, 2) you mixed up the right and left ear buds (that little angle/contour does make an actual difference in the way they they fit your ear canal), or 3) you bought from a supplier who wasn't Amazon & wasn't legit, and your pair is counterfeit. If anything, music tends to sound a bit cold for our liking, with the 'phones slightly lacking in the rich and buttery mids that add the desired warmth. However, we were generally impressed with the clear and balanced audio response during testing, though a few songs could sound harsh. Hip hop, electronic, and pop are genres that shine, and even classical sounds good. If you can get a good fit and want the most stylish earbuds you can get your hands on, the Tour In-Ear Headphones are a worthwhile option. The fact that they no longer offer the black tours with volume control as a replacement suggests that they either know about the issue and refuse to send them out as warranty replacements, or they've had so many claims on this particular model that they're completely out of stock. They're not worth 150.00. They're not worth 50.00. Buy a cheaper pair of sennheiser buds or the upper end of the skullcandy line and you'll get better sound - by far. We tried the different buds for better fit and sound to no avail. I simply cannot describe here my disappointment with this product and the warranty return process, nevermind the bummed out kid that hasn't had them to use for the last few months.
I have gone through around 9 pairs of apple ear phones in the last two years. having decided enough was enough I purchased these for around 80 pound and was not let down one bit. I loved them. they came with a range of ear buds to allow for all different shapes of ear lobes. I found after a few weeks of experimenting my favourite ones and used these as they were completely sound isolationg. however the earbuds can slip off the ear phones and this happened to me whilst out of the house. I then had to use a not so good pair of ear buds, however they were still yards better than a pair of your bog standard earphones. how comfortable they were was just amazing. they were also so loud, maybe too loud that you could do yourself some damage. the sound they produced was so crip and clear that it was on par with some more expensive ear phones ive tried over the years inlcuings ones from bose and sennheiser. unfortunately after aound 2 years my pair breathed their last breath due to water damage and I was devastated. on the plus side though due to apple buying beats they have made new lines of earphones and if you are lucky enough to fiond a pair of old stock still they you can pick them up for dirt cheap. the most recent price I saw was 15 pound which is even cheaper than apples which are roughly 30 pound and don't last 1 week
As with anyone spending this much money on a pair of headphones, I did a lot of reading and checking of other peoples reviews. They had some quite mixed feedback, but I have to say I am very glad I bought these. I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking about getting them, bite the bullet and do it. All I can say is "well done Dr Dre!" These earphones are an absolute pleasure to use and have definitely achieved Dre's goal of enabling us to hear the music "the way it's meant to be heard".
I got bought these as a Christmas present and have been very pleased with them. I have owned a number of decent pairs of headphones including Bose, Sennheiser and Etymotic and these are in the same ball park. They have a couple of cool features like the tangle-free cable and the numerous earbuds which will fit all but the most freaky ears.
However, if you are spending £100+ on headphones you are either a big Dr. Dre fan or are more interested in the sound quality than the features. The beats deliver an excellent range of frequencies and high quality, punchy bass. I was concerned that they were a little too bassy and might lack in the trebles but after playing with the EQ on my ipod across several types of music they also deliver excellent sound quality with acoustic, rock, punk and classical music though still leaning a little towards the bass. These headphones are marketed as delivering the full details of music how it should be heard and they certainly do this.
You will definitely hear aspects of music that you may not have previously been able to. If you are looking to replace a pair of stock headphones and like bassy music then these are perfect for you. I highly recommend these earbuds to anyone looking for an excellent midrange headphone especially if you have previously struggled to find earbuds with bass. These are definitely NOT a pair of crap buds with a rappers name on them.
i went through much search before settling-in for purchasing these earphones. So here i break-up my feedback under two themes.
- They allow the player to pump-up the volume
- The cable is sturdy and very chic.
- The cable never tangles as it is a flat ribbon like construction.
- The sound is brilliant. The ear pieces do not extra colour/frequency and hence the aural senses do not get any exaggerated tonal values.
- The earbuds do require a break-in period i.e. they get to sound better with use and thereon remain superb
- Very attractive piece of audio technology.
- The buds unlike the cable feels a tad delicate but that makes you wanna be a litle careful.
I purchased the Monster Beats by Dr. Dre along with a set of Monster Li Jamz and I conclude that the former really demonstrate great piece of audio engineering - My favourite now. The Lil Jamz are now kept standby and for alternate use.
Conclusion: Monster products give true value and oomph for the money spent. It is important that you too do your search before zeroing-in on any particular model. It helps appreciate technology better. And finally if you prefer, like me, you too could purchase twin-sets of the same earphones to ensure that you don't have to search for a replacement.
Beats by Dr Dre Tour High Definition Powered Isolation Headphones. Hear what you have been missing! The Beats range of headphones have arrived at Advanced MP3 Players. The Tour Earphones have been engineered by the audio experts at Monster in Collaboration with Dr. Dre to reveal the full sound of today's digital music.
In my opinion they are good quality is worth the time to check them out. The way that they are packaged is so awesome any buyer would know that theres something worth buying inside. Then you open it and see the really cool and practical hard case which is great so you never accidentally put weight on them and break them. It also includes 7 pairs of ear tips in case you need them to fit better or when you just lose them.
I have had bad experience with other headphones that have that thin cable that tangles up so easy but with these it makes it almost impossible for them to tangle up wich is pretty cool and stress relieving. Another feature that their creators thought through is the remote control with microphone on the cable that makes it so handy when you want to answer a call or just handle your music without having to get the player out of the pocket.
Speaking of the sound I believe they are, perhaps, the best earphones I have tried. the sound is incredibly clear making possible to hear every detail that songs producers want you to hear. The bass is also great without being too much and unbearable after a while of listening to some songs. An issue sometimes common with other similar models.
The sound quality of these headphones is on high demand and the logo of the beats looks so classy and cool. Also the colours are great, they come in black with red and white with some red. I have the black ones since that black and red combination is my favourite. They fit very well too, so you never have to push them back into your ear to avoid them falling off.
I would recommend these headphones to anyone because of the quality and the durability that they have proven to hold.Although these are great headphones to own I would say please bring the price down just a bit… lol
These are your standard ear plugs, not headphones or ear phones, these are plugs that slot into the ear and are held firmly in place by the rubber buds that surround the actual mini speaker.
I'll get straight to the point and say that these are not worth the extortionate amount of money that people are forced to pay for them, not a chance. We're talking over £100 for a set of ear buds. Jesus.
To be honest I've used cheaper buds that have not only given me a more enjoyable time whilst listening to music they have lasted longer than these buds that I, foolishly, bought.
The buds are nice and comfortable in my ear, with there being three pairs to select from, all different sizes, which helps when it comes to people with small ears to thise that resemble Shrek.
Each ear piece has a red letter 'b' etched on it, which is probably why there cost over £100 as this stated that some rapper has put his name to it in order for him/her to get publicity and for the makers to sell more units. Sadly, I fell into the trap of buying something because it had a name on it rather than something that would last well and be good to use. With one having an 'R' on it whilst the other dons a 'L', which is so that you know which one goes into which ear.
The good thing about these are they are comfortable in the ear, to the point that I sometimes forgot I was wearing them and began wondering where the music was coming from.
But the downside are that the music quality through them is about as good as any other, cheaper, brands, or even some of the poundplus shops own. Which is why I felt severe 'buyers remorse' when I got these and started using them. I mean, so much money for so little service... it was like a bad dream. I may as well have stuffed my money down the grid.
But you live and learn, and I've learnt never to buy anything just because it has some burks name on it.
These beats tour headphones are good but there just not top quality as you would expect with beats headphones, in fact they often are falling out of my ear especially when using them for exercise or even in the gym. They are also very uncomfortable which is very unlike beats headphones because usually they are well built and comfortable and provide you with a first class sound but unfortunately these headphones are a bit of a let down to the beats renowned name. They have tried to make a portable version of beats which can be used pretty much anywhere but in doing so they have sacrificed their essentials and have actually made a product with great potential worse which is a hard task especially since they are beats. They are constantly falling out which is beyond irritating I can tell you that and also the rubber ear case for the headphones keeps ripping or falling off which adds to my frustration and at a steep pricing of £79.99 it leads me to think that i've been ripped off, they are just not worth it. Your better off getting actual beats headphones because they're the proper deal with no doubt in my mind. Although they still produce a good standard of sound and are also extremely stylish since they come in various colours but there is no point in headphones that are uncomfortable and also are expensive for what they offer. personally I would save up and buy proper beats headphones, the beats tour is just a waste of your money…don't buy them.
After my Skullcandy earphones broke (completely after 2 months), I decided it is time to invest more money on some proper earphones. And since a lot of my friends are happy with their Dr. Dre earphones I decided to give them try as well. After I paid over whooping hundred dollars I did not know if to be happy about my purchase or calling myself an idiot for spending such a ridiculous of money. When I came in New York from store to my hotel room I needed to give them a try straight away.
The earphones have a very stylish design and they look expensive. You can see straightaway the difference between these and cheaper earphones. The cable seems to be very durable. The earpieces are quite long, when I compare it to other earphones, however it is not disturbing at all. On every earpiece is a red “b” logo. I purchased the red and black combination and it looks very well together. The sound quality is excellent, no disturbing noises at all and it makes it very pleasurable to listen to music through them. After few weeks of having them I caught myself that I’m not using my old over ear headphones anymore but rather grab this earphones even at home instead.
I would definitely recommend this earphones. It is the great tool to enjoy to listening to music even more. But lets be honest - they are really overpriced. But if you have the money to give, this is definitely a great way to spend it!
If you want to stand out from the crowd then you should look no further than these. They feature a nice red cable that makes them distinctive and certainly makes them look good. I have not been one for he big chunky headphones, much preferring the in ear ones but these do give the additional feel of quality and make you look and feel good. The earphones have a nice feature with the disc shaped buds with a cool logo. They fit really nicely into your ear and they block out the background noise well. I find that the signal you receive means that the noise that is being transmitted comes through so clearly. There is a real crispness to the sound and I have experienced few better.
I find that because the cables are quite long then there are some really good practicality issues. You don't have to stretch the cable or device because there is plenty of slack to go around.
Having had them for a few months now and have found them to be very durable and as they get a lot of use when I am running for example I have no worries about them lasting a long period of time. Some products of this nature can feel cheap and horrible but despite the price I have no concerns about these even on long runs and with its everyday usage.
Overall I am really pleased with them. They are stylish, long lasting and most importantly give fantastic sound quality.
I cant fault the sound nice and deep when needs to be and clear. You can get them at a good price if you look around.

I received my pair of Monster Sound Dre Earphones as a birthday gift a couple of years ago. I already had a few other earphones, but hey a gift is a gift so of course I accepted them with great pleasure! I actually didn't quite realise how expensive these were until I looked around on the internet for this review, and found Argos to be selling them for £119.99. It does seem a bit much for a pair of earphones, but I guess if you're an avid music listener like me then you probably wouldn't mind spending extra for quality. Prices however, can be found considerably lower on eBay starting from £20-70.

These earphones have a very trendy looking design, I received the red and black coloured version. The ear buds are black coloured and have and outward rubber padding that fits onto a small extended bar that itself is attached to a metal plate. The wire is 1m in length and is red coloured, it has a 3.5 mm headphone jack connected to its end. The Beats by Dr Dre symbol is located on the back of the ear phones and has a red and sliver finish.
The earphones come with two different sized ear buds to attach to the earphone ends. There is one small ear bud or a larger one to choose from, I tend to use the smaller sized one as I find the larger one harder to fit into my hear. The fact that it provides you with ear buds to choose from is excellent, as I sometimes share these with my partner and he uses the larger sized ones, so it really does cater for all sizes. The earphones fit into my ear fairly easily; however I do find that it requires one or two attempts to get them to fit, however once they are in, they stay in. My partner however simply just pops them in his ear with a single go, so it's probably just my odd shaped ears rather than a fault with the earphones and is a very minor quibble if any.
I can have the earphones on while exercising without having to worry about them falling out, I often do aerobics with these in and they really do stay in position excellently. I also use these occasionally while cleaning the house, or vacuuming and find it works really well in cancelling out background noise, and impressively drowns out the vacuuming sound quite well.
The 3.5 mm headphone jack is gold plated and therefore improves the quality of the sound distribution. The sound quality is brilliant, and I find that I tend to only need the volumes set just under medium as that is more that enough to produce sufficient sound. On the other hand if I use my cheaper set of earphones I would need to set the volume quite high to hear the music clearly, which illustrates just how good the quality of sound is from these earphones. There is no buzzing or crackling sounds, instead the sound is crystal clear and I can ear all elements of the songs playing back to me perfectly. The bass and base is amazing, and it really allows the background music and beats come alive.
The noise cancelling is a feature that has benefited me greatly when I am out and about in a busy shopping centre of on a busy train commute; it allows me to enjoy my favourite podcasts and music without any annoying outside interference. Sometimes it does work a bit too well, and I have failed on a few occasions to notice my mobile ringing or the house phone ringer going off, so I have missed a few calls accidentally.
The 1m earphone cable is more than long enough in my opinion, it allows me to listen to my mp3 player while it's in my pocket or on the side table without the wire restricting me in any way. The cable is also designed to reduce tangling, I am not sure how exactly it works but it does work well, I rarely find my earphone wire tangled up or with lots of tiny knots. This is great as my other earphones that don't have this feature have at least six knots in the wires from all the tangling.
The earphones come with a small black case which is great little added extra that enables me to store my earphones away inside when not in use, and most importantly keep them save when travelling. The case is made from hard plastic therefore provides excellent protection, and has a zipper closing.
= = = = =
Would I recommend these earphones? Yes I would, they produce great sound quality and brings outside noise cancelling to whole new standard. I would rate these 4/5, losing one mark for the hefty price tag.
These in ear Beats by Dr Dre come at a hefty price but my experience with them was not good at all. I used them for a total of three months and after that they just stop working and I do not know why.
The ear phones themselves have extremely good quality bass as the ear buds go deep into your ears and unleash some really clear deep bass with average vocals. The ear phones come with five different ear pieces so everyone should have a pair of ear pieces that would fit them perfectly. For some reason though none of the ear pieces fitted my ears so I had to improvise and use Samsung ear buds in order to stop them from falling out my ears.
The ear phones come at a premium price but in my opinion it is not worth it as they are easily breakable if they are accidentally stepped on and the wires are extremely thin. The reason they are thin is to stop them from tangling and it actually does work because they have never tangled for me. You can just store them in the case provided with the ear phones without having to worry about them tangling up in the case.
I did not like these though as they broke extremely quickly and I had to replace three of then so instead I opted for overhead Dr Dre Studios. The Tours were unreliable for me because sometimes they worked and sometimes they would not make a sound.
If you do want to try them the best device to use is an Apple product as the ear phones are optimised to work well with all of Apple's devices.
Sorry I haven't published a review for a while, college finished and I jetted off to Orlando. I am back now though!
I have bought many pairs of headphones and they kept on breaking to a point where I'd spent hundreds of pounds trying different ones out, I thought it was time to actually buy an expensive product and see how well that works for me. I had to save up and I did not wait until I had broken the previous pair like I usually do, mostly for comparison purposes once I had the headphones. The headphones I have gone through have been brands like Creative, Skullcandy and many others I cannot remember, just trying to save money. Bad idea! Come to think of it the Skullcandy pair I had were the ones that broke first, also the most expensive.. brands aren't always worth the price tag.
A main reason I had wanted to buy these was because I wanted a pair of good headphones as I have started trying to produce EDM as a hobby and need to hear everything that anyone listening can hear. Learning all these things through tips and learning how to use Massive. Maybe it will always just be a hobby but you never know, although I'm not giving up on education juuust yet.
As you know these are expensive, yes it is mainly because they are Beats just like Apple products are more expensive because it will have the Apple logo on it. I have never splashed out on headphones before and I thought why not? I have not regretted it, some friends say I can get the same quality for less money but I made my decision and I am happy with it.
What's in the actual box you get with the product? You get the box itself which looks very nice, the way the headphones are packaged is strange but very cool and safe for the transport of them. You get 7 pairs of ear buds to adjust for your ears as if they are too big this can cause discomfort.
The design is one of the main factors with headphones and usually determines the durability of the headphones and how long they will last. These have a flat cable design which is relatively new, within the last few years. It keeps tangling to a minimum, makes the wires themselves more durable in case they are enclosed or stretched, with this design the effects from being stretched will not show up unless they are actually being tugged on, even then it will take a while.
They are very comfortable in the ear for an extended period which is nice, you can actually listen to for a long time without feeling discomfort which had happened to me all the time with other headphones, though you do have to bear in mind that I have never had my own over ear headphones because I do not see a use myself for them. They are too big and annoying to cart around for me.
The wire has a volume control which can answer calls, turn down the music. This is a nice feature as you will not have to take the device out of your pocket to change the audio volume or to answer a call and of course they have a microphone on this remote control device so you can speak to someone with the phone in your pocket and on the move. I also like the design visually, it looks really good, I have the red and white version of these. Finally they fit really well and do not fall out even when in the gym and doing such activities, they fit perfectly when you have the right buds for your ears, even when they are slightly loose they still fit.
On the subject of taking them around with you they are easier than previous pairs I have had but these type of headphones (in ears) are usually awkward to cart around unless you have lose pockets, the enclosed space can damage them. A design hasn't come up that can completely combat this problem though. They have made the headphones light and durable so that it is easier to do this. I have done this with them and they are fine but wouldn't often with any headphones.
Now on the sound quality it is great as I expected, people seem to say that beats are terrible because of the price and yes a portion of that price is simply because they are beats, a known and very popular brand but this does not mean the headphones themselves are bad, they are one of the best if not the best I have ever had with all factors including sound quality. The bass isn't made so heavy that its hard to listen to but it can handle heavy bass songs, the range of music is can handle is incredible. For example listening to EDM songs it is so different to any other headphones I have ever had. A good song for this is SKisM-Experts, the bass is so much more prominent with the beats.
Now I bought these headphones early May, I know this is not a long time but these are still working the same as the were the day I first got them and they have been through a lot with me I am very impressed, I will update this review when they do break but I anticipate it will be a long time. I say when because no pair of headphones will last forever. I have learnt to treat my headphones better with the many pairs I have been through.
I have talked about the price a lot, but never mentioned how much. Well if you buy direct from the website it is currently £119.95. They are offering a discount on the original beats at the moment, maybe they will on the Tour in the future. If you search around on the internet you can get these for a lot less, I saw amazon selling these from £50-£100 at times.
You also get a one year warranty with the headphones if you buy direct from the Beats By Dre website or an official seller, anywhere else there is no warranty. Be aware of this if you are only saving a small amount of money is it worth it? What if they break within the first year due to manufacturing problems? I would personally be very angry with myself and the saving wouldn't stack up enough for me to buy from a second hand source.
In conclusion all factors that go into headphones such as durability, sound quality and lifespan these beats excel at all and I think will continue to do so.
