When I bought it:

 

When I bought the beats tour by Dr. Dre I was impressed at the sound quality and the comfort. I was used to using my standard Apple headphones that came with my iPod so it was a big difference from that.

 

What comes in the box:

 

  • Actual headphones
  • Carrying Case
  • 3 pairs of standard Monster designed eartips
  • Two pairs of different size triple layer "Airlocks"
  • Quick start guide

 

Features:

 

Tangle free cable

 

Control Bar

 

Microphone for hands free calling 

 

Comfort: 

 

It came with different sizes of earbuds so it can fit perfectly into my ear. The comfort was pretty good until I lost one of the earpieces. When I lost one of my earpieces I went one size up from that and all it did was fall out over and over and over again. 

 

Audio Quality:

 

The quality of this was at first perfect (compared to my Apple headphones but after 2-3 months it started

getting all static-y in the left earpiece and was a major difference from what I heard before. Also after it went back to normal I was going to change the earpieces and as soon as I put it back on it was static-y on the left earpiece AGAIN! And a week after that the left ear just wouldn't work.

 

Design:

 

This headphone would only be good for people who don't really know good sound quality and just want to make a fashion statement (along with all of the other Beats products by Dr. Dre.)

 

Other:

 

The control bar on the right earpiece sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't. It says at apple.com that it's not compatible with a PC so if you are going to listen to music or just watch youtube videos on your PC  THIS HEADPHONE IS NOT FOR YOU. It's only compatible with iPhone, and iPhones 3G-4S, all iPod models, iPad 1-3. I bought mine from Apple which means that it is guaranteed that it's not a fake. Also the earpieces collect a lot of earwax (gross I know) so whenever you take the earplugs out of you ears you might see a lot of "yellow stuff."

 

Value:

 

Buying this is not worth the price that it's set on ($160). I think that it's only that much because of the brand name and because it's by Dr. Dre. 

 

Overall:

 

The Beats by Dr. Dre was a good headphone at first but I later changed my mind to just sticking to the standard Apple headphones. So to anyone reading this 

 

Don't buy this headphone!
