When it comes to the headphone market in recent years few have made a bigger splash than Monster and Beats by Dr Dre, delivering a range of cool, fashionable, well sounding headphones, including the Beats by Dr.Dre Tour in-ear headphones.
For those of you that prefer the in-ear headphones instead of the larger headphones, Monster Beats by Dr Dre have the Tour high-resolution in-ear headphones model, which still provide the iconic red flat wire that does not tangle itself up and its slightly unique design, guaranting that you will stand out from the in-ear headphone mass market, that also includes the traditional iPod/iPhone headset.
The Tour Beats by Dr Dre comes with a nice little package that includes 5 sets of replaceable tips for best fit, and a protective little carrying case for storing your headphones in that is actually quite useful. The Tour Beats lend themselves especially well to the style of music represented by Dr Dre himself, including hip hop and RnB, but also sound really well with more rock-ish music, as the bass is very clear and strong.
Now, i have tested these both when travelling and i have tried running with them, and if there is one issue with the Beats Tour model it is that it sometimes feels a bit big for in-ear headphones, making them slightly less comfortable while doing activities such as running. Then again that could just be the shape of my ears, which generally are very picky when it comes to in-ear headphones!
Compared to other in-ear high end headphones though the Beat by Dr Dre Tour headphones are good value for money. The sound is very good and they look very stylish and different than many other headsets out there. You can buy the Beats Tour model from amongst other the following UK retailers.
