Pros: The cable is pretty cool and extremely resistant to tangling.

Cons: Feel odd when in ears, utterly barbaric quality.

Where to start?  I bought these in-ear headphones from Best Buy a while back.  They lasted me around 3 hours of total time out of the box before the left earphone began to produce crackled sounds and static.  I take incredibly good care of my belongings and my Apple In-Ear Headphones are still working fine after nearly 2 years of continuous use as my primary set of in-ears.  They did isolate sound a bit, but nothing about them made me want to continue using them.  Needless to say I returned them the next day.  Never before have I ever seen a headphone of such poor quality.

Some claim that the $25 JVC Extreme Explosive HA-FX1X sounds almost the same as the Tour. I haven't heard the Tour. I do have the HA-FX1X though.It has very strong bass and an overall bright sound with very detailed midrange and highs.

JK1, They sound better than the tours. At least in my experience. Everyone hears differently though.
