Key Features:

  • Full Power: large high-effeciancy drivers play loud without distortion

  • Monster sound isolating eartips in multiple sizes provide a perfect fit to seal out external noise
  • Low mass, wide-bandwidth driver for precision response

Features:

  • Hear What You’ve Been Missing
    At Monster we are true audiophiles, having researched audio technology for over 30 years to develop the finest audio cables, home theater speakers, and headphones. Now, we are proud to unveil Beats Tour featuring Monster’s newly developed driver design. Because the ultra-fast response time, the Beats Tour driver can accurately reproduce the full sound and details of today’s digital music with precise clarity, natural vocals, and big bass punch
  • ControlTalk: The Ultimate in iPod® and iPhone™ Control and iPhone/Music Phone Hands-Free Calling
    With the built-in ControlTalk remote, you get on-cable control of your music, as well as easy, high quality hands-free calling. You’ll enjoy quick-access music playback control, like volume, play/pause and tracking, without having to dig for your iPod or iPhone. 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 iPhone to your ear
  • The World’s First Tangle-Free Earbuds
    At Monster, sound has always been the most important to us, but when it comes to the headphones you use everyday, we were determined to get rid of the annoying ritual of untangling your earbuds every time you want to listen to music. After ten long years of passionate research, we finally found the solution. The new Beats Tour flat cable design is so revolutionary it's patent-pending. The Duraflex® cable jacket is tough yet remains flexible while the flat profile virtually eliminates annoying tangles and snarls. With Beats Tour, you'll spend less time untying knots, and more time enjoying your music
  • Get Low, Get Low
    Most in-ear headphones simply cut off the low end of your music because they simply can't reproduce low audio frequencies. It took well over three years to develop and fine-tune the technology that makes Beats Tour bass so big, you'll think we put a subwoofer in your head. Dr. Dre would have it no other way
  • In-Ear Noise Isolation
    Beats Tour in-ear noise isolation cuts external noise for a better music experience than traditional earbuds. 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. With Beats Tour, you'll hear everything no matter how loud the rest of the world is
  • Play it Loud With Full Power
    Most earphones don’t have the power to play music at the volume some music lovers like us prefer. The large high-efficiency drivers and magnetic technology have been custom engineered to play loud without distortion so you can hear every note. Beats Tour delivers power and clarity that reveals the emotion in your music
  • Designed for Apple Sound Check
    The Sound Check feature on your iPod balances playback levels so all your music tracks play at a consistent volume. But if the volume difference between tracks is large enough, ordinary earbuds may not play tracks with Sound Check loud enough. Beats Tour drivers were engineered so you have all the power you need to rock out even with Sound Check on
  • Monster High Performance Headphone Cable
    At Monster, we know cable. The Beats Tour cable features Monster’s patented magnetic flux tube and Micro-strand construction to provide clear no-loss audio and reduced interference

Alright. After a couple months of teetering back and forth and reading many many reviews about the Monster Dr. Dre Tour headphones across many websites (many bad reviews as well) I decided to get a pair. I wasnt going to buy them off [...] or some seller on [...] because I knew I would probably get an after market version made after hours at a illegal chinese factory(IE a fake pair). So I went straight to [...], picked the box off the shelf and brought it to the register and plunked down my hard earned cash.These are the most expensive headphones i've ever bought. So Needless to say I will be treating them like I treat all my electronics. With the utmost care. I bought these 5 days ago. After a few months of use I am going to post a follow up message but until then I will say this. They are pretty Awesome!! As soon as I took them out of the box when I got home I tried them on with the ear pads that were already on them. They fit perfectly snug and cut out a HUGE percentage of background noise. I was happy to feel the deafness in my head knowing that before I even plug them into my iPod or macbook I was going to get good noise cancellation. Next thing was, how are they going to sound to me? I have a few songs I like to use as tests for when i get a pair of headphones or monitor speakers. Its something that works for me and it may not work for others but My ears like to hear certain things and so I use a variety of different sounds. First up is So near, So far By Miles Davis. This has such a nice clear clean sound in it and the bass line that everything rides on top of has such a nice low round tone to it. Upon hearing it through these headphones I felt like I was in the room with the band. The ride cymbal was a blaze. The bass line bumped and the trumpet was clean as a whistle and firing on all cylinders. Wow, I love this song. The next song was Lakinis Juice from the band Live. It starts off with a dirty guitar riff and the next thing you hear slowly sneaking in is an effect through a synth. Atleast thats what ive always believed it to be. But this effect comes at you so strong these earphones it feels like your mind is being transported from one head to another. As soon as the drums come in with the bass, Your head is a Subwoofer. The guitars are gleaming on top of a mean low bassline and the pop of the snare is taking your head off. What all this means is....Ive never heard the song sound so good with such noise cancellation.The last song I use to test with is always something from an album by a defunct Euro pop band called Alice Deejay. Needless to say at this point I already knew the headphones had a great mix of clarity and low end but upon listening to the Alice Deejay stuff, it clarified to me just how good these little speakers do actually sound. Amazing. The bass beats and synth on this album came through like ive never heard before. The piano and low end drums sounded really good. I was a happy camper. I realize I am in no way a professional audiophile when it comes to testing and grading equipment. But I will say that I love good sounding music and I can tell the difference between these and a pair of Shure E2C's that I had a couple years ago. These bury the V-Modas that I currently have and they crush any of the cheap Skullcandy's currently on the market. The Monster Beat Tour headphones were spendy yes, but the sound, the style and the so far the build quality of them are well worth the price if you can afford it.Simply put, these are the best in ear headphones I have ever owned.

After being a loyal customer of Monster for my A/V needs for years, I decided to take a chance and invest in a pair of Beats By Dre In Ear Headphones. But this was a diasaster as soon as I opened the box. After looking at the headphones, I immediately saw the silver accents at the base of the ear pieces, where the red wire goes into the base, weren't properly bonded to the base. This was just an asthetic defect and after using the headphones, I thought the sound was good, not great but good. After using them for a total 3.5 months, the midpiece where the 2 channels go into 1 became unglued, the wire going into the headphone jack became exposed, and the last straw was the right earpiece became unglued form the base and stopped working (Notice the trend???) But after contacting Monster, their Warranty Dept. gave me excellent customer service and hopefully this was a fluke. But beware!!! The sound was good but for as much as I paid for these, I expected a lot more quality.

    the sound quality just takes me away, straight away.
    Im listening to worship tracks I have been hearing for months ... but Im listening at a next level and because the external sound is locked out and the bet and melody fills your head.. the music moves you - its an immediate heart to heart vertical earth to heaven connection through the ear drum!

      Beats are amazing. I use them everyday and each time I feel something new in the music. It comes with great bass and treble. They are also very cool looking. I absolutely love the tangle-free wire. It saves a good few minutes not de-tangling them. I have to say they are amazing for price. Thank you Monster for making such amazing headphones!

        This is actually my second pair of Tours and I love them. My first set are almost 3 years old and have over 300,000 miles of air travel use along with 1 hour workouts almost everyday. I purchased a new fresh set because my first started to have a little buzzing in one ear but I am pleased with how long they have lasted. Overall the sound and bass is great.
