Our take on the Beats Tour™

by Dave Bar

Bump up the beat in your music wherever you go
Building on the success of Beats Studio™ headphones, the Grammy-winning hip-hop producer set out to create portable 'phones with that same powerful studio sound. The result: Beats Tour by Dr. Dre. True to Dre's intentions, the sound is clear and balanced, and the bass is tight — perfect for hip-hop and rock lovers. The Tours look as distinctive as they sound, with their iconic red and black machined-metal earbud casings. The flat, ribbon-like cord is extremely durable, and resists tangles.

Built-in controls for iPod® and iPhone®
A remote built into the headphone cable lets you control music playback without having to dig your iPod or iPhone out of your pocket. You can even answer calls on your iPhone hands-free, thanks to the in-line microphone. (See "Hands-on Research," below, for a list of compatible iPods and other devices.)

In-ear design keeps distractions at bay
The Tour's extra-long earpieces reach a little further into your ear canals than most other earbuds, isolating you from outside sounds so you can focus on your music. They come with three pairs of cone tips and two pairs of triple-flange tips, so you can find the fit that's most comfortable for your ears. A semi-hard carrying case neatly stows your accessories and protects your 'phones.

Features

Overview: The Beats "by Dr. Dre" Tour High Resolution In-Ear Headphones feature large, high-efficiency, wide-bandwidth drivers that play loud without distortion and provide accurate, full detail of your music. With the built-in remote on the Beats Tour headphone cable, you get on-cable control of your music, as well as easy, high quality hands-free calling. You can enjoy quick-access music playback control, like volume, play/pause and tracking, without having to dig for your iPod. Plus, the high-grade mic and high-resolution, sound-isolating headphones all combine to let you hear and be heard much more clearly and conveniently than you ever could with your cell-phone to your ear. The Beats use a patent pending tangle-free cable design which resists knotting up. The Beats Tour come supplied with sound isolating ear-tips in multiple sizes to provide a perfect fit and to seal out external noise. A carrying case is also included.

In-line Remote/Mic: A small remote + mic is attached to the cable of  the headphones. It is designed to give you music playback control from select iPods, iPhones, and other music phones; as well as hands-free calling through the in-ear headphones and built-in mic.

  • Music: Play/Pause, Skip/Previous Track, Volume Up/Down
  • Phone: Answer/End Call, Decline Call, Call-Waiting, Volume Up/Down

Compatibility: The in-line Remote/Mic only provides full playback functionality (play/pause, tracking forward/back, scanning forward/back and volume control) on iPhone and select newer iPods with limited functionality on other devices and earlier generation iPhones and iPods. Full remote playback functionality supported only for iPod nano (4th/5th/6th gen), iPod classic (120/160GB), iPod touch (2nd/3rd/4th gen), iPhone (3GS/4), and iPod shuffle (3rd/4th gen).

Ultra-Fast/High Efficient Drivers: The Beats Tour earphones feature ultra-fast drivers that can accurately reproduce the full sound and details of today's digital music with precise clarity, natural vocals, and big bass punch. The large high-efficiency drivers and magnetic technology have been custom engineered to play loud without distortion so you can hear every note.

In-Ear Noise Isolation Ear-Tips: The Beats Tour in-ear headphones features multiple pairs of various sized ear-tips, designed to fit comfortably and securely to block out external sound. Beats Tour includes five pairs of earbud tips: three pairs of cone tips and two pairs of triple-layered tips for the most comfortable, secure fit that isolates you from unwanted external noise. Beats Tour in-ear noise isolation cuts external noise for a better music experience than traditional earbuds.

Tangle-Free/No-Loss Audio Cable: The Beats Tour headphone cable features a flat profile which virtually eliminates annoying tangles and knots.

3.5mm Connector: The Beats Tour features a 1/8" (3.5mm) gold-plated, right-angle, stereo minijack connector to plug into your music player or cell-phone.

Carrying Case: The Beats Tour earphones come supplied with a carrying case to store and transport the earphones.

Its a good product but i wish it was explained correctly that the Mic will not work on an Android Device. You can only use it as audio playback.
Pros:
Great quality sound.
Cons:
No Android Phone support.

Good sound, Poor craftsmanship

Written By Andrew, Quakertown, Pa on Monday, July 15, 2013
 
Great sound and good bass. Highs could be a bit better. Biggest con of these headphones is that they don't last past 5-6 months! I have gone through 2 of these in the past year and I only listen to them in my office at work. With headphones at this price, you better well know that I take good care of them. But both sets the left ear bud stopped working. Will also go with the Bose in the future.
Pros:
Good Bass
Cons:
Very poor build quality

Amazing Sound, but....

Written By JBL Puerto Rico, Dorado del Mar, Puerto Rico 00646 on Wednesday, April 10, 2013
 
Awesome sound, love the tangle free proprietary cord (it really does work)! These headphones will definitely call people's attention as "expensive", you need to keep an eye on them or they will "walk" away....

My only gripe is the build quality of the mic button and specially the jack connector does not hold up to much abuse, before the connection begins to come and go. Too bad!

Dr. Dre sells these headphones for enough money to guarantee first class build quality from its suppliers. Regardless if these are in China. Apple does it and does it well. I pay a premium for their products and I don't have problems within a few months of normal wear and tear of your average adult, nor do I abuse them.

I ended up replacing my beats tour with Bose : )
Pros:
Great Sound, a true tangled free cord & great looks!
Cons:
Poor Build Quality
