Top Customer Reviews
I tend to trust reviews a LOT. The problem is, it's difficult to trust the reviewers. Sure, I question the authenticity of the reviewer -- are they being paid by the brand, are they a competitor, etc.? But perhaps even more commonly, I question the judgement of the reviewer. I'm accepting the advice of someone I've never met without knowing their own particular standards. Plus, people are often to fast and loose with platitudes ("they're absolutely amazing!" or "they're garbage!").
So when loads of people gave these Beats Tour2 headphones good reviews, and after I read about 12 reviews under each star rating (i.e. 60 total reviews), I decided to purchase these as my old Bose in-ear headphones finally came apart and died. In fairness, the Bose were 6 years old and I accidentally ran them through the washer and dryer, finally ending their lengthy lifespan.
Now, I'm not a Bose superfan. In fact, I owned Bose speakers in the mid-nineties when small surround speakers just came out. I was 15 and thought they sounded "amazing" as, prior to the Bose Acoustimass 5 speakers, I had a boombox-style Sony CD/Tape/FM stereo with detachable speakers . But the reason I go into my own history is b/c I think it's critical in writing a quality (and useful) review. The point is: reviews are incredibly subjective; you need a frame of reference in order to evaluate a product in context. At 15, and moving from a Boombox, I thought Bose speakers were amazing. Now, I wouldn't go anywhere near Bose speakers, I've since owned far better speakers.
The same is true with these Beats Tour2. Compared with the $20 white earbuds that come with your iPhone 6, these sound and feel fantastic.
Suffice it to say, these headphones are just okay. Yes, they're "5-stars" better than the cheapos that came with your iPhone 6 (or whatever). But they're not "5-stars" better than some of the other contenders in this price range and a little higher.
At $100 they're pretty reasonable. Build quality is solid. Nice thick rubber cable that deters knotting and terribly-annoying tangling. Carrying case, extra earbuds in various sizes, beautiful, Apple-inspired packaging that's become all the rage. But then you realize that carrying case they come with, that over-the-top packaging and printing, those extra earpieces, and all those advertisement costs means you're actually getting $60 headphones, probably less. (Yes, Shure and Sennheiser and Audio-Technica are also paying for those. But seen any Sennheiser commercials lately? Seen the packaging? They're not appealing to teens and are putting more money into their actual headphone drivers, and it shows).
My $100 Bose earbuds from 2009 lasted 6 years, went through a lot of winding and unwinding of the cable, and still sounded pretty solid years later. To be fair, I burned these Beats in for 3 straight days (played a range of music for 72 hours to "warm" the sound). Based on all the great reviews (which I'm now assuming are coming from loads of teenagers who've only ever used their Apple earbuds) I had fairly high expectations. These Beats did not deliver. First, the trouble is incredibly harsh. So much so that higher volumes (the kind you listen to when you're actually using your earbuds when you're outside running, walking the streets of San Francisco, etc.) actually **hurt** my ears and gave me a headache after about an hour of listening. Granted, your ears acclimate and I wouldn't get headaches after extended use, but I didn't want that level of treble funneling straight into my ears. And I don't want to have to use those cheesy Apple EQ settings to pull back the treble.
The bass everyone raves about is definitely there BUT... I couldn't get it to come through. Perhaps this isn't the fault of Beats, but the Beats did not sound nearly as bassy and rich unless I physically pushed and held them in the correct position in my ear. I tried every ear bud attachment twice. I tried different positions, different levels of force putting them in my ear, but nothing was able to have them stay in the one position I needed. Now, when I was able to hold them in, the bass was incredibly loud and deep and rich. These are definitely not "accurate" headphones, but they're fun. They're like a dance party. But the moment I took my hands away, the party stopped. And even when they were being held in my ear, the treble was too piercing.
I was able to A/B my old Bose headphones (Beats in right ear, Bose in Left... and then vice versa) and the Bose were far smoother. The Beats were all Bass and Treble -- and I actually prefer a U-shaped EQ curve. But the Beats felt too separated, with nothing in between. Meanwhile, the Bose were warmer, less harsh, still bassy, and FAR more comfortable in my ear. I also purchased some Shure SE215-K at the same time as these Beats and was able to perform the same A/B testing. The Shure's also gave me a little hassle with fit (had to push them in somewhat hard to get them to stay...so much so that it hurt my inner ear for the first 2-3 days of use). But the tonality of the Shure's far surpassed the cheap thrills of the Beats.
I really wanted to like these. I like the style, the cable, AND the bass (exaggerated as it is!). The treble alone would've been a deal-breaker -- not worth the pain or damage -- but the fact they couldn't form to the geometry of my ear made them a quick return.
I don't feel they deserved 2 stars since the "fit-problem" could be personal. But I gave them 3 stars because I didn't hear $100 headphones, I heard $50 headphones with tons of bass, but not the kind of balance and tonality that gives justice to my music. Rap, Hip Hop, and Electronica, they're probably brilliant (minus that treble), but they didn't bring out the subtle detail of my FLAC files, they didn't provide good imaging, and they don't compare with some of the more refined headphone brands, at least not in this thirty-year-old's opinion.
These earphones have been awesome! Haven't had any problems still. I even put them into the washer by accident and they still worked! I'm not sure why people are have so many durability issues but mine have fallen on the ground and have been put in the washer and they still work and sound just like when I bought them. Mine must be indestructible! Still recommend to anyone who wants a good pair of earbuds.
These sound pretty good and they stay in your ears while working out! The music control works perfectly. Great bass and sound and doesn't sound muffled at all. The wing tips are a really good feature. Though they do feel a bit fragil I will not knock off a star because I haven't had any problems yet.
