Beats by Dre Tour In-Ear Earphones Review
17 April 2014
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.
What's great about the heavy emphasis on bass is that it doesn't turn muddy at high volume.
Pros: Eye Catching Design:, Pump Up the Volume:, Would You Like Some Bass With Your Bass?:, iOS Friendly:, Accessories:
Beats Tour Review: The Mobile Monster ‘Beats by Dr. Dre’
15 November 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.
Conclusion: Most celebrity stuff is rubbish. This isn’t. In fact, given the innovative tangle-free cable and crisp, precise sound, the Beats Tour has as much to offer classical and electronic music fans as it does its urban target market.
Pros: Why aren’t there more celebrity gadgets? If there were a Jensen Button sat nav, an Alistair Campbell BlackBerry or a Stephen Fry iPhone, we’d be first in line. Until then, these Dr Dre earbuds are a fine stop-gap, combining some serious design kudos with the kind of tip-top sonic precision that a hip-hop producer requires. The flat, fire-engine red cable slips smoothly out of tangles, while ultra-responsive drivers squeeze out lusciously crisp sonics, even at high vol...
Cons: While this doctor does make house calls, he naturally prefers rap. Strangely, the Beats Tour doesn’t pump out as much bass as you might expect. The biggest problem with them, though, has to be their sheer size – it’s a struggle to get the inch-long buds inside your head without poking your brain. Ouch. At least there’s a wide selection of silicone tips and earpieces to assist your DIY neurosurgery.
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. In this case, for your Monster price tag, you get good audio, gold-plated connections and some bone-shaking bass. They look pretty good, but would look a whole lot better if they were about $50 cheaper.
Conclusion: Rap fans, rejoice. Monster’s Beats by Dre Tour in-ear headphones put back the bass that went missing when boom boxes gave way to iPods. And surprisingly, it doesn’t even appear that Monster used any juiced-up gimmickry to get there. While the Beats do a capable job above the bass line, drivers that go boom just don’t seem to sing like other phones in this price range do, so we can’t say that jazz, classical or even rock fans will find their tunes all that flattered by...
Pros: Solid bass, as promised; eye-catching design and colors; truly tangle-free cords; variety of silicon tips
Cons: Slight harshness, missing detail in music; difficult to change silicon ear tips; some discomfort with longer ear tips
Monster Beats Tour By Dr. Dre In-Ear Headphones Review
13 March 2009
Conclusion: The snazzy looks and status--and price premium--of Dr. Dre's lifestyle brand are definitely embodied in the Beats Tour, with performance that exceeded my expectations from the earbud form factor. The tangle-free thing is a big deal, as I'm sure I'm not alone in the hours lost freeing my cables from themselves, now if only they could invent a cable that didn't get caught on everything else. Maybe when Kevin Lee cooks up a pot of farfalle….
Pros: Comfortable, with an array of replaceable eartips, Outstanding noise isolation, Surprisingly solid bass and wide dynamic range
Cons: No microphone or adapter for iPhone, no in-line volume control, A serious investment, as pricey as an entry-level nano
The Beats by Dr Dre Tour headphones offer decent sound quality, but there are better in-ear headphones available for similar prices

Summary: Monster Cable's Beats by Dr Dre Tour in-ear headphones have a stylish design and reasonable sound quality. Their noise isolation isn't the best and the advertised tangle-free cable isn’t completely tangle-free. If image is important to you then these headphones are a decent option, but there are better-sounding alternatives for the same price.
Pros: Stylish design, relatively comfortable, flat cable doesn't get tangled as easily as standard headphone cables, good bass, crisp and detailed sound
Cons: "Tangle-free" cable isn't completely tangle-free, microphonics evident when cable is touched, average noise isolation, overpowering mid-range, no microphone for mobile phone use
