• Beats by Dr. Dre Tour with ControlTalk

    I just picked up a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre Tour and I have to say that I find these headphones to be phenomenal! Dr. Dre has teamed up with Monster to create some of the best headphones I have ever owned. Up until now, my headphones of choice for iPhone use has always been V-MODA. They're all I've bought since owning an iPhone. But they will be taking a serious back-seat to my Beats Tour for everyday use.

    First of all, the non-tangle cord is not only cool looking but it's fully functional. With all that extra width in the cord comes more wire and much less impedence, which results in a higher quality sound. With the headphones come a whopping eight different sets of ear buds. I found that the ones mounted fit me fine but I'll try out the others too. There is also a hard carrying case that also has room for extra ear buds.

    The best thing of all with these headphones is how awesome the sound is coming from them once you have a nice fit. Dr. Dre has said that with the digital music revolution, a lot of sound has been lost because of sub-quality headphones and his goal was to get it back. With the Beats he has succeeded. I hear sounds in songs I have listened to a hundred times that I never heard before.

    Here are some specs from the website:

    tour High Resolution In-Ear Headphones
    High Resolution Sound
    Ultra-fast, accurate speaker design delivers the full details of today’s digital music with extreme clarity and deep bass

    Built-in Mic for Hands-Free Calls and Online Chats

    Monster XLN® High Performance Headphone Cable
    At Monster®, we know cable. Tours’ cable features Monster’s patented magnetic flux tube and Micro-strand construction to provide clear, no-loss audio and reduced interference.

    Tangle Free Cable
    Earbuds are incredibly convenient, but they’ve got one big problem: they tangle. But Monster’s innovative, patent-pending flat cable design is ultra-flexible and tangle-free.

      You can get them straight from their website (most expensive), from Apple (expensive) or from Best Buy (good deals). Be careful about Craigslist, eBay and other sites like this. There are some poor quality fakes going around that are giving the product a bad name. But once you have the real deal, you won't regret the purchase!

      Dude, I could have written this article myself. I feel exactly the same way! I too have bought nothing but V-Moda since the first iPhone. But after buying the white Tour headphones by Dr. Dre, I will never go back!!! Everybody should get a pair. It's like I wanted to listen to all my music again through these headphones. Awesome quality!!

      The ones for that price may not include the ControlTalk feature.
