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
