Rated 4 out of 5 by Lil will Honest review of urbeats
I was at first hesitant for buying these because of all the bad reviews but I was pleased when I opened them. The the packaging is really good and they come with a really cool carrying case. The head phones them self seem well made and so does the cord. The thing that does not see well-made is the voice control button and other plastic things on the headphones. They seem like they might break. Other than that sound is great but have only had them for a week. Hope they last

Rated 4 out of 5 by Isaac_11 A good way to jump into beats earphones
First let me say, I own a pair of Beat Studio Wireless so I wasn't looking for an expensive, great sounding earphone, more so something I could walk around school and about just chilling instead of having my big, flashy headphones. First is the case: This case is probably my favorite case for any ear buds I've owned (which is a lot). This case can compress next to nothing and holds the buds very nicely. Next is the ear phones cables: these cables feature flat, "silicone" consistency, tangle free cables. Whatever you do except for tying a tie with these ear buds they will NOT tangle! Also, the in-line remote works very well with my iPhone 5 with no problems. The overall design of these ear buds are great, except that for consumers wanting to purchase this product with smaller ears, the ear tips included seem to be intended for consumers with bigger ear holes, I actually had to take my tips from my other pair of ear buds that fit me better. And now the sound quality: if you're looking for something that will compete with an average pair of headphones these may get the job done, but if you're looking to compete with ANY beats over ear headphones these will not, and I would suggest either Beats Tour or Powerbeats. So these feature some really great bass, I love bass and rap and didn't find it overpowering but defiantly enough to satisfy myself but when I listen to pop another genre I love, some extreme highs like Ariana Grande yelling in "Problem" these ear buds sadly just barely couldn't reach those notes and the sound quality defiantly was slightly muddy then, but besides that, I've listened to just about every genre and these ear buds have delivered. Overall if you can pay the $100 I would defiantly grab these as a portable, compact, great sounding alternative to your big headphones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Annie Brown Awesome, however....
I really LOVE these headphones, best sound and quality I've ever seen in a pair of headphones. The only problem I have with these is that after long and continuous use over almost 12 months the sound int he right headphone stopped coming through. The only way to get sound was to hold it in a specific position, it doesn't bother me while using my laptop but when using with my iPhone, for which i have to use an extension cord, it bothers me to no end. I will be going to get them replaced, however I would rather get them replaced then spend $15 on other headphones over and over.
Overall I am pleased with these headphones, just really wish the headphones were more durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jayd1416 Best sounding earphones I've owned
The urbeats earphones are by far the best headphones I've owned as far as audio quality is concerned. Only knock on them is the durability as mines have shorted out after only about a year and a half,they broke right after 1year warranty went out so take good care of them very delicate

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hali Loved them
I was so obsessed with my UrBeats! I got the black earbuds with the red cord and they looked sharp, sounded sharp, loved them! Until my right ear bud decided to stop working. I got these back in May so it's only been four months. I'd love to purchase again but not sure it's worth the money to be re-buying every couple of months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by musiclover Depends
They sound great, but only if you can get them to fit easily. I tried all the sizes and none fit well. If you take your time and can place them correctly, they sound good. You cant just place them in your ear because then they will sound muffled, you need to keep adjusting them. Their construction is good, except for the mic, it is made of a plastic that doesnt inspire much confidence.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JJNeepinFilms How patient are you?
If your sitting still, or on the bus, they are great. But if your walking, the buds keep falling out and you can hear noise from the cable rubbing on your clothes. It's mixed feelings. They look cool, and sound cancellation is good when YOU ARE SITTING STILL, but VERY POOR WHEN MOVING. They were a gift so I will keep using them, but I wouldn't recommend buying the ear buds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jessepete Poor Quality
I had first purchased the Tours a little over a year ago and loved them. Then recently I had noticed that they had made a new model specifically constructed for the Iphone 4. I had to get them!. But i have to say... I was greatly disappointed in the sound quality. Though i must say they stay in your ears during working out and they also have much better bass then the Tours but still have nowhere near the Clarity, Tremble and Power the Tours provide. The Tours hands down are much better for those looking to really enjoy their music to the full extent. Tomorrow im bringing them back and Purchasing the PowerBeats. If your looking for a ok set of headphones and your tight on money i would suggest you buy the iBeats, But if you can pay the price definitely go with the Tours or PowerBeats.
