So i have the over-the-ear beats solo(not HD). my friend and i each want to get some in-ear beats tour, but they seem WAY overpriced and are getting bad reviews about durability.

does anyone have these Beats Tour? If so, what do you think of them?

(This thread can talk about any beats and problems you have with them etc. it doesn't have to be just my problem.)

I think all beats are overly priced. My friend bought a pair of over-the-ear ones which broke within two weeks. I sent him a fake asian pair, which had the exact same audio quality and have lasted. As for the in-ears, i personally hate them, but i hate all in-ear headphones, but sound quality isn't bad at all.

Overpriced and all that jazz. As Jefferey mentioned, those fakes are insanely good for a cutthroat price. Pity you guys can't get them. But advice is still not to get them.

The Beats solo i have now work great and i love them, but both my friend and i want to hae the more portable ones for the bus. We are worried about them breaking on the bus.

I kind of forgot to mention all of that in the original question/post.

They are a fashion item. You pay for the brand, not the sound quality.

Beats suck. Go buy Chambers by RZA.

I got a pair of secondhand Beats while I was in China. The mute button went loose pretty quickly, but in trying to figure it out some screws got into the speaker casing and shot the boost. Then I figured out that you could fix it from the other side ._. Eh, I heard they don't last more than six months anyways. I didn't like the fact that you needed batteries, since you can get a rival pair for less that doesn't require batteries. For $30 they were a great price, but in America you can get a pair of Sennheiser HD280 Pros for a third of the full price.

Why do I need headphones when I have my brain to play music for me?

Buy a pair of Sennheisers for half the price and get better quality without the overpowering bass. Beats are like the iMacs of the headphone world, but even Apple has OS X as a distinguishing factor. Beats just cost more because they're designery sh*t.

For real, go to any college campus not knowing what they are and you'd think it's just a really fashionable brand of oversized necklaces.

That's like saying you don't need sex because you have an imagination.
God, this forum needs an edit function.

No, it is nothing like that. Songs you can play in your head or at least I can, because I have them memorized so I know the tune and words and the sound of the persons voice. Sex is totally different but I don't want to get off topic.
