DE­SCRIP­TION

Business Traveler (USA) - - TRIED AND TESTED -

Height:25 mm Weight: 0.016 kg Length of Ca­ble: 1.25 m Type of Jack: 3.5mm COMES WITH Soft carry pouch, 4 pairs of ear tips, 3 PRICE $149.95 beats­by­dre.com best for that, but they have a bulky unit at­tached to them which you have to clip to your shirt front or jacket lapel, and so are less con­ve­nient.

I like the ca­ble on the Tour, which is long and flat, al­low­ing the ca­ble to be rolled up and put in the neat car­ry­ing case quickly and eas­ily. The de­sign also en­sures that it – or rather they, since there are two ca­bles, one for each ear, which then meet and be­come one – never got tan­gled while packed away. I’ve had head­phones where you spend the first minute or so un­tan­gling the wire each time be­fore use. The flat ca­bles have solved the prob­lem, so to be free of that ir­ri­ta­tion is worth ex­tra.

I was less keen on the color of the ca­ble – red, on this pair – although I no­ticed many other, ad­mit­tedly younger, trav­el­ers seem to opt for red. But it’s pos­si­ble to or­der a black ca­ble if you pre­fer to be more sub­tle about the brand of head­phone you are us­ing, or al­ter­na­tively don’t have any­thing that matches red in your wardrobe.

Re­ally good head­phones – ro­bust, great sound and well-de­signed. BT
