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.
Summary: 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.
Conclusion: Overall, Monsters Beats By Dr. Dre Tour are a great pair of in-ear headphones for the style-conscious who want superior quality sound and aren’t afraid to shell out a few extra hundred dirhams for it.
