Beats by Dre meet Audiophile Earbuds

The Monster Cable Beats By Dre Ear Buds is the result of what happens when Dr. Dre teams up with Monster Cables' audiophile engineers to create a pair of earbuds. With over 30 years of audio technology, extensive research and development, as well as the trained ear of audio professionals, the Beats earbuds prove to be an outstanding pair of audio in-ear speakers. Each and every time the headphones are played you will appreciate the ultra-fast response time, the deep bass notes, the precise clarity, and the natural vocals.

The World's First Tangle Free Earbuds

A new design of earbuds required not only good looks and great sound, but also practicality. The unique shape of the cable prevents it from getting tangled each time you pack up the headphones. Monster Cable was determined to eliminate the annoying ritual of untangling the cord each and every time you wanted to put in your earbuds. The patent-pending Duraflex cable remains flexible, while the slim profile prevents tangles and snarls. Now you will spend less time untying knots and more time enjoying your music.

Little In-Ear Speakers, Big Bass

The majority of in-ear speakers simply can not reproduce low audio frequencies. This means that most earbuds do not accurately play the bass that the songs should have. The Beats by Dre in-ear speakers are fine-tuned and developed to produce big bass. If you didn't know any better, you would think that you had a subwoofer in your head. Big bass is exactly how Dr. Dre designed it. Bass. It's what the doctor ordered.

Noise Isolating Ear Buds

Enjoy your music more by removing outside noise. The Beats Tour in-ear speakers have noise isolation that cuts the external noise for a far better musical experience that your traditional earbuds. Part of the noise isolating secret lies in the earbud tips. Included in the box are a total of 5 pairs of eartips that are designed to keep noise out, along with being so comfortable that you will forget you are wearing earbuds.

Don't Hesitate to Play Loud

The large internal drivers and efficient magnetic technology inside the Beats Tour earbuds allow you play your music loud. It doesn't matter if you have your sound check on or off, these in-ear speakers will play your music loud and clear!

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Acoustic Principle
The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types: Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source. Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room. Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

General Features

Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.

I love these freaking ear buds. Best ear buds i could ever own. I couldnt hear anything around. They blocked all the noise out. And the bass??? The bass was the best. I know what bass is. Ive heard 12 rockford fosgate p2 12'z before. Now they aint that loud, but there the loudest headphones ive ever owned. When i lost them, it broke my heart. I WILL be getting another pair of these. You HAVE to get them. The sound quality is the best. Its clear and loud. And of course the bass was loud and clear too. And these things pick up low bass notes. Like 20hz low. And sound great. Get them, u wont regret it.

Best headphones ever

July 18, 2011

These headphones are amazing. I've never heard this much bass. And I can't hear my parents yelling at me, they're great. There's really nothing I would change except for the price.
