Rated 3 out of 5 Seems promising until months pass by
I got these Beats Tours in black at my local Best Buy on September 1st of 2012. The reason: Obviously in a wealthy NY town, there are many people in my school with Beats; varying models-so I decided to get one assuming they are popular. Almost 10 months later, I have gone through 3 pairs through the warranty. I've been doing some research and most people got theirs in a seems to be newer, rectangular box instead of my original square box (my current pair has the square box;2nd=rectangular#. Anyway, the real truth is that although they perform with the true, down to the core sound Beats are known for...they tend to break fast. Through the past two sets, #each lasting 3 months# my tours had its right speaker blown: be advised I don't use these heavily. There are some issues that they don't fit in my ear; but after a few weeks, they are a snug fit. Other than that-no other problems at all. Basically, I bought these because I wanted Beats but didn't want to bother my dad about the typical "Beats" price+I usually wear earphones like these instead of over ear headphones; whick are now okay after the experience. Although it has given me a bunch of street cred in school; at the end, it isn't worth it to have great quality over terrible durability. It has been about 2 months or a bit more since I got my 3rd pair-not a problem so far. Assuming my Beats will be defected in a month or so, and my waranty will expire in just over 2 months for now; I still want the Beats sound quality that doesn't lack overall quality. Right now, I'm deciding about a Beats Mixr based on it's amazing and outstanding reviews. I listen to artists like Nicki Minaj and popular current rap/pop songs and Beats does bring out the sound quality. The only reason I gave the durability a 2 instead of a 1 out of 5 is because I've seen the reviews of the powerbeats on this website-making those sound worse than this #btw:I don't own powerbeats so you can ignore me for this part#. If only these were made better...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous123 Good sound horrible durability
This product is great for sound and bass but this product has horrible durability. I have had my tour headphones for four months now and they are already broken. The product will cut out many times when I'm listening to my music and its not even turned up half the way. Another thing that has happen to my earbuds is that the sound button does not work and also my silver button in the middle have stop working also. I would not recommend these to anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Vstr Great sound but bad durability
The Beats Tour are great sounding headphones and have various earbuds to help ensure the sound is awesome when you first put it in. They are stylish and the antitangle cable is a god send.
The main problem with these are that they break internally so quickly and easily. I have had a pair for 5 months and they have started to show signs of sound problems but it went back to normal. Now almost a year in and the headphones are having issues and they are just getting annoying to use.
I wouldnt recommend them mainly because they should be much more durable for the price being paid and other headphones which cost much less and last a lot longer.
Buy if you want great sound, but would be willing to get a new pair every year.
