With the built-in ControlTalk remote on the Tour ControlTalk headphone cable, you get on-cable control of your music, as well as easy, high quality hands-free calling. You'll enjoy quick-access music playback control, like volume, play/pause and tracking, without having to dig for your iPod. Plus, the high-grade mic and high-resolution, sound-isolating headphones all combine to let you hear and be heard much more clearly - and conveniently - than you ever could with the phone to your ear.At Monster, sound has always been the most important, but when it comes to the headphones you use every day, they were determined to get rid of the annoying ritual of untangling your earbuds every time you want to listen to music. After ten long years of passionate research, Monster finally found the solution. The Beats Tour flat cable design is so revolutionary it's patent-pending. The Duraflex cable jacket is tough yet remains flexible while the flat profile virtually eliminates annoying tangles and snarls. With Beats Tour, you'll spend less time untying knots, and more time enjoying your music.Most in-ear headphones simply cut off the low end of your music because they simply can't reproduce low audio frequencies. It took well over three years to develop and fine-tune the technology that makes Beats Tour bass so big, you'll think Monster puts a subwoofer in your head. Dr. Dre would have it no other way.Beats Tour in-ear noise isolation cuts external noise for a better music experience than traditional earbuds. Beats Tour includes five pairs of earbud tips: three pairs of cone tips and two pairs of triple-layered tips for the most comfortable, secure fit that isolates you from unwanted external noise. With Beats Tour, you'll hear everything no matter how loud the rest of the world is.Most earphones don't have the power to play music at the volume some music lovers like Monster prefer. The large high-efficiency drivers and magnetic technology have been custom engineered to play loud without distortion so you can hear every note.
