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: 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.
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.
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.
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
