Overview: The urBeats by Dr. Dre are high performance in-ear
headphones that deliver big sound in a small package. They feature proprietary
drivers, housed in a solid metal housing that is designed to withstand the
rigors of everyday life. The unique tangle-free flat cable includes an in-line
3-button remote/microphone. Included in the package are four pairs of ear tips,
a clothing clip, and a handy storage pouch.
Housing: The urBeats feature a precision-machined single-billet metal
housing that prevents vibrations and distortion.
Cable: The 48" cable is ultra-flexible and flat so it won't get
tangled. The low-friction rubberized jacket deadens sound caused by contact, so
you'll hear only the music as you move about. The cable terminates into a narrow
3.5mm plug that will work with most smartphone cases.
In-line Remote/Microphone: The in-line remote and microphone are fully
compatible with most Apple devices, including iPod nano (4th generation or
later), iPod classic (120GB and 160GB), iPod touch (2nd generation or later),
iPhone (3GS or later), and iPad. The remote is compatible with iPod shuffle (3rd
generation or later), and audio is supported by all iPod and iPad models. The
remote is also partially compatible (play/pause, answer/end calls, and voice
commands) with Android, Blackberry, and HTC devices.
Note: Full compatibility includes the following functions:
Play/pause, Skip forward/backward, Scan forward/backward, Answer/End calls,
Voice command, and Volume control.
Ear Tip Assortment: The urBeats by Dr. Dre include an assortment of
soft rubber ear tips. There are three sizes of ear tips (large, medium, and
small), and one pair of flanged ear tips. One pair (medium) comes installed on
the earphones, while the others are stored in a vinyl folder with a snap
