When I first heard that Dr. Dre was releasing his own line of headphones, I was skeptical. I could not believe that anything of quality would be released and I thought that the whole concept was just a marketing trick (attaching a world famous name to a brand of earbuds to help them sell). I have now come to believe the opposite Wireless Headphones with Waterproof IPX7-Dual 5.0 B07H18FYL8.
The Beats product line by Dr.Dre has several types of headphones. There are the professional studio headphones – the Beats Studio. The Beats Solo is a cheaper alternative to the Solo. While the Beats Solo does not offer the same audio quality as the Beats Studio, it should satisfy the average consumer. This article will focus on the Beats Tour – the earbud alternative in the Beats by Dr. Dre product line.
The Beats Tour has the standard 20hz to 20,000 khz frequency response. 20hz seems a bit high for an earbud that claims to be a “good reproduction of hip hop”. Generally the lower value the better the bass. From experience 14hz is the optimal value. However, the Beats Tour earbuds have an impressive driver design. As quoted from the Tour’s feature list: “Large, high-efficiency drivers let you crank it up and enjoy loud play without sound-wrecking distortion.” Driver size is one of the most important aspects to look for when buying earbuds (especially if you need a good bass response). Due to their small size, earbuds often have mediocre drivers. The Tour earbuds claim large drivers, and based on the favorable customer response, it seems the large drivers size makes up for the mediocre frequency response.
