Rated 3 out of 5 by Graham Nice Earphones but breaking :(
I am a huge fan or Dr. Dre and his Music, and I am a creative web designer myself so my music is important to me while working, but I have had like 4 pairs of these and they keep falling apart sadly, the control talk stopped working, then on the second pair the right ear broke, and I got them replaced, as was still in warantee, the third pair also the right ear broke and again got them replaced, this time the cord is exposing some of the inner wiring so sometimes no or very little sound comes out, they also come out of my ear while walking which is annoying. I am using v1. I am a loss in regards to these because I really like the design, the brand etc
i have lost track of the receipt because I have bought so many pairs of these and they have all broke one way or the other. I also have the Solo HD headphones as I mentioned above I love the brand and they seem to be fine but I only use those while at home, and need a working pair when I am on the move which have a microphone built in as I use them with my iPhone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dj_Vue Really wanted to like these ear buds
I bought these with no hesitation. My main problems is that these will not stay in my ears. I've tried all the different combinations I could to make them stay in but they don't stay in. I'm not the only one with this problem. If I sit they can mostly stay in but when I walk around campus they fall out every 5 steps I take.
When they do stay in, they sound great.
They are built well structurally.
Past 3 hrs my ears lobs start to get sore from use but this only happens during finals week.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JAT Disappointed
I had the original ibeats and decided to upgrade to tour. Gave the old ones to a friend who is still enjoying them. Wish I could say the same about my upgrade. I am disappointed in the quality of the mic, and now less than a year after purchase the right bud is broken.

Rated 2 out of 5 by EMFF Awesome style, poor craftsmenship
I've owned several pairs of Beats headphones (Tour, Tour 2.0, Urbeats). The right earbud in my first pair of Tours stopped working and shorted out, the same happened with my Urbeats. I now have a pair of brand new Tour 2.0's. Out of the box, the in-line mic and pause/volume buttons did not work. I love the sound quality they have, along with how they look, but something needs to be done about performance of them. For the amount they cost, they should work for years without problems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by philipche Too much Bass
I find that the bass is still too heavy and the sound is not clear enough
however the sound is a bit better than the previous tours

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ammobland Great Product (except the one I have)
We've had a couple of these products and have had great luck. However, the Tour, I have to (like another customer reported) twist the cord in a certain way to hear, without static. It's frustrating at this price point. I keep them in the case and cared for - can't afford not to. For the time before the noise started to intensify so that they can't be listened to, the sound was great. I love bass and these are great for bass lovers.
I hope that there is something to be done with this set I have - even exchange would make me happy. I do feel like a got an exception. All the best, Ann Marie

Rated 2 out of 5 by mengineer durability is sub-standard
The first set had sound problems with the right earpiece. I had to argue with Virgin megastore to replace them immediately, because they said it would take a week to determine the exact problem with the earphones. After an hour of arguing they provided me with a new set
The second set has fallen apart where the audio jack connects to the cable and has exposed the wires.
I also own a beats pill. The Bluetooth connection to the speaker frequently gets disconnected and I would have to shut-down and reconnect the speaker.
So far not impressed by the durability and quality of the beats products, especially compared to other products in the same price range.

Rated 2 out of 5 by music lover 18 durability is horrible
The first tour earphones I had didn't even last 3 months without losing sound in the left earphone. I then got the tour 2.0, same exact story.
To Dr. Dre, I hope you are reading this. Your headphones may have okay sound but they have no durability at all compared to other headphones. I have a friend who's headphones are 3 years old and went through the clothes wash and they work perfectly fine. Forgot about the fixing the sound, increase the durability so that customers will not have their hopes risen high, then dropped rock bottom.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Comradestrolski Do not work out with these!!
I have had my beats tour earbuds for about three or so years now, best headphones I've ever had until I decided to start working out. I have never had a single problem other than the little ear clip attachment breaking on my tours until two days ago. I am deployed overseas and decided I wanted to get in better shape and took my tours to my first workout. It all went downhill from there. They got sweaty and first the remote/mic stopped working completely and now everytime the wire even moves slightly they get all crackly. These were the best headphones I had owned until then. I am pretty disappointed with them now that one work out has ruined my headphones and I am stuck without the awesome sound these provided while I am over here. I would recommend these allll day if your not into working out and possibly getting them sweaty if that's the case DO NOT get the tours because they WILL malfunction.
