Beats Tour 2.0 headphones feature tangle-resistant wires and come in a small, circular case which features a hard, zip-up exterior. If you’ve used earphones for any length of time, you may have noticed a persistent problem (or at least a definite annoyance) namely, that the wires for such devices are very apt to tangle. Beats Tours feature flat, shoelace-like wires, which goes a long way to alleviating this problem. The combination of these two factors allow for you to simply toss your earphones in without worrying about their tangling, all while making sure to keep them safe while on the go. These earphones aren’t without their fair share of innovation, as they come with controls which allow you to skip around through your favorite songs. Tours come with different-sized earphones, so you can choose the shape, size and color scheme that best fits you personally. Basically, these are the best headphones for running or intense workouts.

Beats Tour Review by Dr. Monster Headphones

In terms of sound quality, the Beats Tour does a good job of presenting decent quality sound for ear buds. When it comes to ear buds, there’s always a bit of a conflict between size and sound—slimmer, smaller earphones are of course less auspicious, showing just enough to allow you to show them off with a degree of casualness, but at the same time this can impact the quality of the sound coming out of those tiny speakers. Likewise, bigger speakers can mean better, clearer sound quality, but also create a bulkier, less aesthetically-pleasing product. The Beats Tour model strives to strike a balance in this respect and, for the most part, it succeeds, albeit a tad more in the size department. That being said, this likely won’t matter to you too much unless you’re a serious audiophile, and chances are, if you are an audiophile, there are other options in this review which you have already gravitated towards. Otherwise, the Beats Tour is the best in ear headphones.
