Product Details

Monster Beats By Dr. Dre Tour White In Ear Headphones With ControlTalk, Model 129490

Key Features:

  • High Resolution Sound: ultra-fast, accurate speakers reveal the full details of your music
  • Full Power: large high-effeciancy drivers play loud without distortion
  • Patent pending tangle-free cable design resists snarls and knots
  • 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

Hands down, these headphones have helped me fall in love with music all over again! The sound is the star in these itty bitty headphones! The depth of the bass, the clarity of each note -- these in-ear headphones blow its competitors away by far! I've played all sorts of music using these headphones, including Rock, Rap, Classical, live concert recordings, etc., and it's remarkable how I'm hearing sounds on the tracks, just as the recording artists intended us to hear, that I've never heard with any other pair of headphones. The drivers in these headphones are seriously the best. I tried using my Tours with a quality amplifier, which really compliments the sound too! I'm using these headphones with a dell laptop, an iPod 5th gen and a first gen iPhone, and while I'm already blown out of the box using the headphones with them by itself, the amplifier helps improve the sound on the devices' ends. The in-line controls are great, as well. The mic is extrmemly clear and you don't have to hold it up to your mouth in order for people to hear you! The carrying case to store your headphones is great, and they include a clip for your shirt that prevents snagging the headphones out of your ears if you get caught on something. And FYI, the cord seriously DOES NOT tangle! I've even tried to make it tangle on purpose, and I couldn't! Above all, you're making a great investment in these headphones by purchasing them. Show your support and write reviews if you have a positive experience with them!I think that poor reviews for this product are written when people buy the bootleg/fake versions (which are very close to looking like the original product), thinking they have the original thing. People complain of cracked wires and blown out speakers, among other issues, but anyone who buys a legit pair of Tour headphones can tell you that none of these are issues. Only purchase these headphones from [...], the Monster website, or from another authorized dealer. Lots of phonies all over the Internet. If in doubt, don't purchase, and alert Monster ASAP. You can also contact Monster for an opinion before you buy, as they'll know if a product source is real or fake. And remember that the headphones are under warranty by Monster (assuming you bought the real ones) in the unlikely event that you should run into a problem.Above all, Beats by Dre Tour with Control Talk is an awesome little set of buds with crisp, deep sound and rocking features like the no-tangle cord. I assure you that you'll be pleased with your purchase. If Dr. Dre designed them, don't you think they'd be fly?! 5 stars for the best pair of earbuds ever made! Now to save my pennies for the Beats by Dre Studio model . . . !!!!

The product in the start is great (I own the regular tours + tour w/ control talk) that I use with my iphone while I work. I do have a manual labor profession which makes me sweat all day while I jam out with these bad boys. But overtime you start to see the Y-point and control talk start to fray and usually have a plastic tear which will spread the more you move. I've returned both of them in the warranty period and they are starting to happen again. I've been electrical taping them for a quick fix but it's like a band aid.

It does like to slid down while I work (because of no clip) and it does pop out once in awhile if enough tension on the line from slipping.

all and all - they are awesome headphones, but if your a hardworker/player - these will hold up for abouth 8 months then start to stiffen up and usually crack.

P.S. - the flat wire is a cool concept but monster seriously need to figure out how to seal (ie: Teflon) the wire so it keeps it softness and flexibility.

(i would recommend another product of monster than this one to a friend)

          I got these last year as a gift, i was so excited, they worked for about 5 months, then died out on me.I ignored the issue up until a month before the warranty was over, monster customer service was SUPER helpful, and just as i was about to go send back my defective unit, i got the new one delivered to my door. Best customer service i've seen in a while!

              I got these for Christmas 2010, used everyday and now the wire is pulling out of the in line remote, so no control of the volume or track selection. As well wire is pulling out at the Y junction, now held together with hockey tape. The sound is great, but for the money I expected way more quality.

              As amazing as the sound is, the comfort and fit of this product is awful. The buds do not stay in regardless of which ones you use (and there is a big assortment supplied with the headphones) With hindsight I should have paid a little more and either gone for the over-ear option or for another brand.[$] wasted on this occasion unfortunately.
