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.
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.
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.
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
