Summary: Beats by Dre Tour in-ear earphones are about having fun with your music collection by putting bass performance center stage, even in songs where bass isn't the main focus. Rap and hip-hop are obvious fits for these earbuds, though pop and techno can play nice as well, depending on the song.

2013 Beats Tour Review: Redesigned and Reinvented For the Better
27 September 2010
Summary: The second coming of the Beats Tour is a welcome improvement over the originals. They genuinely sound great, and while bass is prevalent, it isn’t drowning out any of the other sonics and the headphones provide a lovely bassy body that I personally enjoy very much.
Pros: Crisp and loud with a nice amount of bass that doesn’t drown out the mids or highs. They just sound really good. Solid construction that doesn’t feel plasticky despite the plastic design. Tangle-free cable. Cute carrying case. Comfortable fit.
Cons: Incoming callers had difficulty hearing me unless I put the mic up to my mouth. Ear tips had trouble staying put while walking.
Excerpt: The Tour in-ear headphones are the latest in the Dr. Dre Beats lineup for Monster. The most noticeable feature is the flat cable that is allegedly tangle-free and of course, patented by Monster.
Beats Tour Review: The Mobile Monster ‘Beats by Dr. Dre’
3 July 2010
Excerpt: A surprising number of people seems happy to spend a relative fortune on a shiny new music player, only to listen with the headphones supplied in the box – a box, mind you, which was usually designed in California, made in China, and is arguably more sophisticated than the earbuds inside.
Summary: muffled pair of earphones, iem’s. you are only throwing your money way with these as you can get really excellent heaphones, earphones for same money. and not as if you can show off with theses, they are small, they are not headphones.
Pros: good microphone, smooth sound
Cons: everything else, comfort issues etc see video reviews
Summary: Build Quality
In this category I was very surprised, I've roughed these earphones up quite a bit; and I've even nearly stepped on them, but they still work. The cable is decently sized I wish that the cable was thicker like the previous version.
Pros: Built well, looks good, decent sound if you like hip hop or elctronic music, many accesories
Cons: only fitted for certain genres, powerfull bass, mettalic sounding treble
Summary: I received these Beats Tour 2.0 headphones as an impulse gift from my boss before Christmas a few years ago. I was waiting for him to purchase something at a Verizon store and commented that I needed some new headphones as my previous ones (Bose MIE2i) had been eaten by my Roomba vacuum cleaner.
Pros: Build quality, mic & remote, flat tangle-proof cable, with Comply tips decent bass centered sound
Cons: Stock tips, lack of highs, microphonics, price vs. performance
Summary: This new version of tour is slightly better than the old ones. The bass part is less than the first version and I can tell Beats started to care about the sound quality. But still, everything else don't go very well on this earphone. It is still closed, make people dizzy.
Pros: Good looking, pretty good sound-isolation
Cons: Everything else than the pros are cons, s till don't match the price.
