Incredible Sound but Horrible Build Quality
12 March 2014
Summary: I love these headphones because of their incredible sound and when I put them in I can't hear anything but my music (I've literally had instances where my friends screamed my name right next to me and I can't hear them). The bass is incredible, and I never leave my dorm without them. The wingtips were a great addition as well, as they never fall out of my ear even when I'm in the gym.
Pros: I'm an audiophile -- I use a pair of in-ear B&W monitors and occasionally switch to a pair of Shure in-ears, so I consider myself picky. These monitors aren't terrible, but there's a lot of hype so I wanted to try them for myself. The bass overwhelms everything. Most of what I listen to is rock/ jazz (eg Foo Fighters, Steely Dan, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Brubeck, Cole Porter, Clapton, etc.) and I had to tinker with the iPod's EQ settings to get to a listenable one ("...
Cons: None per se -- I think these seem to be as well-built as many other fancy-packaged in-ear monitors (eg Shure, Klipsch, etc.) and I would recommend planning to replace them every 24 or so months with daily, normal usage. If you plan on using these during athletic/gym activities 18 months at the top end -- just the real world (and not just these -- for any in-ear monitors).
Summary: Ive had these for almost a year now (the older version) and the remote has stopped working, the cord has began to fray to the point where the wires are sticking out near the end by the jack (due to being bent i assume) and i am disappointed that with not even a full years worth of use they have been damaged this much. I use them moderately, daily things like during class or just listening at home.
Summary: I've had my beats tour for about 7 months and they worked perfectly great until last week. I love these earphones. The sound is excellent, and they cancel all the noise around you so that you can better enjoy your music. I just wish they would be more durable, the remote control recently stopped working which I found weird because I don't use it that much, This is my fourth pair of beats tour because I had similar problems with the other ones..
Summary: Returned 2-pair within 30 days. What a joke. Controller stopped working on first pair. Controller stopped working on 2nd pair. The only reason I've given this product 2-stars is because the sound quality was to my liking. Couldn't be more disappointed; waste of time and money. Beats by Dre should be embarrassed about the lack of quality.
Summary: The sound was good until yesterday. The left one stopped working and I got them in September this year! I am really disappointed because they was so expensive and they broke just a few months after I bought them!
Summary: The only complaint I have is that THESE DON'T FIT IN MY EARS. They fall out at every step and I have to shove them into my earlobes to even stand a chance of lasting for four minutes. I was a big supporter of the beats brand at first - I've heard the quality of the sound produced by the headphones - but what is the point of earphones if the design isn't going to accommodate the majority of consumers? I didn't know earlobes required specialty fitting...
