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
