The Tour Beats by Dr Dre comes with a nice little package that includes 5 sets of replaceable tips for best fit,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], and a protective little carrying case for storing your headphones in that is actually quite useful. The Tour Beats lend themselves especially well to the style of music represented by Dr Dre himself, including hip hop and RnB, but also sound really well with more rock-ish music,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], as the bass is very clear and strong.
Update! The competition is now over and the winner is Jayden Sarker. Congratulations!
The Beats by Dr Dre Studio headphones does not only provide that filling bass sound that so many like, but also a very crisp and clear sound listening to classical music, folk music, and pretty much any other range of music i was listening to while trying them out. Based on my experience and likes when it comes to music and sound, these Beats definitely gets a big thumbs up, and the fact that they do look quite iconic and stylish is a big plus.
The Studio Beats by Dr Dre comes with two separate cables, of which one includes a wire control with a microphone that can be used to answering calls etc. when paired with your iPhone 3GS or any other compatible phone. There is also an adapter for use on flights, and a nice Monster Beats cleaning cloth to ensure your headphones are always shiny.
Compared to other in-ear high end headphones though the Beat by Dr Dre Tour headphones are good value for money. The sound  is very good and they look very stylish and different than many other headsets out there. You can buy the Beats Tour model for £120 from Amazon UK.
Now,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], i have tested these both when travelling and i have tried running with them, and if there is one issue with the Beats Tour model it is that it sometimes feels  a bit big for in-ear headphones, making them slightly less comfortable while doing activities such as running.
The new range of Beats by Dre products which was revealed at an event in New York at the end of September included their first ever iPod speaker dock in the Beats by Dre Beatbox, as well as a few new additions to the headphone range, with the big one being the LeBron James Powerbeats.
For some reason the Beats by Dr Dre Solo headphones are a bit harder to come by then the Studio ones,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], but you can buy them for £150 from Amazon UK.
If you are not prepared to shell out for the top model Studio Beats, then Monster Beats by Dr Dre have provided you with an alternative. The Beats Solo headphones feature the same folding design, but is slightly smaller and feature a more compact driver, as well as the controltalk function on the wire that allows you to use the Solo as a hands-free kit together with your iPhone or other compatible mobile phone.
For those of you that prefer the in-ear headphones instead of the larger headphones, Monster Beats by Dr Dre have the Tour high-resolution in-ear headphones model as well, which still provide the iconic red flat wire that does not tangle itself up and its slightly unique design, guaranting that you will stand out from the in-ear headphone mass market, that also includes the traditional iPod/iPhone headset.
Despite weighting in at around 270 grams they are very comfy to wear even for long periods and moving around. The earcups are designed to be comfortable and completely enclose your ears to lock out ambient noise. Their active noise reduction is very effective in blocking out unwanted sounds when listening to your music, and by flicking a little switch on the headphones themselves you can all of a sudden hear what it going on around you. One of the best noice cancelling headphones i have ever tried.
Check out our page of iPhone headphones reviews.
These are the flagship model at the moment in the Beats by Dr Dre range from Monster, a company known for delivering quality audio cables, which we can kind of see in the robust red cables that comes with these headphones. The whole ranke of Beats headphones are aimed at giving you as close an audio experience as to that you would experience in a studio, and without having that first hand experience i have to admit that the sound picture did impress me from the first test.
Win a pair of Monster Beats by Dr Dre Tour in-ear headphones
Although the Beats Solo does not have the same bang as its big brother, the sound is still very impressive and precise. In fact the main difference that i picked up where down to the Solo headphones not being able to block out ambient noise in the same way as the Studio model, given that they sit on the ear instead of covering the ear completely.

There is no doubt that the Monster Beats by Dr Dre are the headphones to use and be seen wearing these days, but are they just about image and coolness or do they actually live up to the hype that is generated around them? I had to find out for myself, and although i’m not a sound expert or audio technician,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], I am sharing my review with you having tested three of the Monster Beats by Dr Dre headphone models; the Tour in-ear headphones, the Solo headphones, and the current top model Studio headphones - and on top of that we are giving away one pair of Monster Beats by Dr Dre Tour in-ear headphones to the person that comes up with the best comment as to why they deserve the iconic headphones, and retweets this article (see bottom of article for more details).
Of course all this glory comes at a price, with the Monster Beats by Dr Dre Studio retaling at £220 from Amazon UK.
Like we mentioned earlier we are giving away a pair of the Beats by Dr Dre Tour headphones to a lucky reader of this post. All you have to do to be in for a chance to win is leave a comment on this post explaining why you should get the Beats by Dr Dre Tour headphones + you get an extra entry if you retweet our post (just make sure to include @iPodDanny so we know you have given us a tweet). Remember to include you email when posting a comment as we will notify the winner by email.
The competition Beats by Dr Dre Tour headphones are a review model which means they have been used for about 10-15 hours but are in perfect condition and comes in the original packaging. No replacement, warranty, or guarantee of quality will be supplied with the product from our end.

Update! [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] reveals their new product range
Monster Beats by Dr Dre Studio headphones
Anyone who has watched either MTV or sports channel lately would have seen musicians, sports stars, or moviestars wearing these iconic Monster Beats headphones by Dr Dre. Just the other day I was watching NBA Action on ESPN and Lebron James was sporting a pair of Monster Beats by Dr Dre headphones as he was walking out to the team bus after dropping 40+ points on the opponents.

Government issues Thailand travel warning,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]
Chinese travelers are being warned not to enter Thailand.
The Foreign Ministry and National Tourism Administration of China yesterday suggested tourists postpone trips to the country, which has recently been plagued by rioting. They also alerted Chinese travelers already in Thailand to be cautious and stay away from the rioting.
The warning came after Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva declared a state of emergency on Sunday in Bangkok and five nearby provinces.
According to the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok, all Chinese traveling in Thailand are believed to be fine. The emergency hotline had not yet received any injury reports from Chinese citizens.
The emergency hotline is (0066) 022450088-2222.
"Thailand has had an unstable political situation in the past few years, so we already have a protocol in place for Chinese citizens if the riots escalate," an embassy official surnamed Shi told China Daily.
"We have also been warning the Chinese community not to go to the riot areas,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]," he added.
Chinese tourist agents have been taking cautionary measures to protect travelers in Thailand.
Ma Xing, manager of the Beijing branch of Ctrip.com,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], China's major online travel service, said its 100-plus tourists in Thailand have not been affected by the riots.
"As the airport and the usual places of interest in Thailand are running normally, our travel itineraries generally don't need to be altered, but places near the riots will be avoided," she said,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], noting they are keeping close contact with tour guides in Thailand to guarantee the safety of Chinese tourists.
"We will stop sending travelers to Thailand until next Monday,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]," she said.
Travel operator China Travel Service also decided not to send tourists to Thailand during the riots.
Chen Shaoyang, a Chinese businessman running the Grand China Princess Hotel and tour service Thai Siri Service Ltd in Bangkok, told China Daily yesterday the livelihoods of Chinese in Thailand has not been threatened.
He said Chinatown in Bangkok has been spared from the riots and Chinese in the city are leading normal lives. However,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych],[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], he noted the political atmosphere in Thailand is rather severe.
"We are hoping the riots end soon," Chen said,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], adding that his tour business in Bangkok is suffering an 80 percent decline in tourists.
He also suggested the impact of the riots will be limited in the next couple of days as the Water Splashing Festival is underway.
