Daddy Digger and I have always been big music lovers and listening to music is a favorite family past time. Even when he’s at work he’ll almost always have a pair of headphones on so he can listen while he works. Ever since Beats By Dre. headphones came out we had heard lots of great things about the sound quality and wanted to try them out. With Father’s Day coming up I knew it would make a perfect gift for him and I was lucky enough to review a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre Tour with ControlTalk Headphones from Radio Shack!
The Beats by Dr. Dre Tour with ControlTalk Headphones come with multiple sizes of single and triple-layer eartips. I love this because really who has the same ears? I love that I can choose the eartips that are most comfortable and give me the best sound quality. This makes them very comfortable to wear as well. They also come with fittings to go over your ear, I prefer not to wear them, but that’s just a personal preference.
Now, let me get to the sound. The first thing I did was visit the Beats Sound Test website where there are high definition digital music samples to listen to. I am amazed by the sound quality and I can hear instruments and beats so much clearer. The sound is absolutely crystal clear and I can hear instruments and sounds that I hadn’t heard before, even in a song I’ve listened to over and over again.
While they are great for listening to music they are also great for plugging into your phone for hands-free calling. You’ll get that same crystal clear sound when you make your calls too! It has a high-grade mic built in and the headphones are sound-isolating so you can be heard and hear very clearly.
The built-in ControlTalk lets you control your volume, play/pause and tracking without having to touch your iPhone or iPod.
They are great for both listening to music and phone calls. I’m very impressed with the sound quality and comfort. Oh, and they come with a nice little carry case that you can pack in your pocket, briefcase, backpack or purse.
Beats by Dr. Dre Tour with ControlTalk Headphones are available at Radio Shack for $149.99
