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! awesome

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!

About Me Frequent Traveler, Gear Head, Professional
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.
