Beats urBeats In-Ear Headphones Review
Looking at the Beats urBeats Headphones
Over-ear headsets are not always convenient for some activities like exercise as they can sometimes limit the user’s range of motion. Although headsets are rather fashionable and they do look good as fashion accessories, they can become very impractical if the user wishes to be extremely mobile.
If you want headphones that are discrete enough to be taken everywhere and can fit into your bag or pocket, certainly smaller headphones are the perfect solution, and to this end, the urBeats in-ear headphones are a very good option.
The first striking thing about urBeats headphones is the quality of the packaging. A great deal of effort went into packaging this product so as to prevent damage either during transportation or within the factory.
The mode of presentation of the Beats urBeats headphones speaks volumes of the quality of the product; this quality is also reflected in other aspects of the product.

Within the product package, there are several (up to four pairs) different types and sizes of ear tips so the user can customize the headphones and make them really theirs. This is one major advantage that these headphones have over others because no other model lets you customize your headset in this manner. Most other headphones have only one option. For this reason, it would be very much advisable to invest in a pair of these headphones.
The ear pieces of urBeats headphones are made of heavy chrome metal as opposed to plastic, which suggests that they would be durable and able to withstand abuse.
The Beats urBeats in-ear headphones also have a noise cancellation feature which isolates external noise, thereby enabling the user to enjoy rich, studio-quality music whenever they use their listening devices. This feature will come in handy on those occasions when you wish to get some sleep on a long trip without being disturbed by anything other than the music playing on your compatible device.
One other notable feature of this model is that it has a small control on the cord that allows you to remotely manage your music without the need to remove your phone or iPod to change the song tracks. You can also use it to adjust the volume on your device. These controls are highly responsive and easy to operate by the user.
The cables of these headphones are highly flexible and tangle-free. They also allow you to switch easily between music and incoming calls without any interruption.
- The sound quality is not compromised at high volumes as the sound is not distorted at high volumes
- The headphones are very sturdy and lightweight
- The ear phones are not always secure-fitting, though this can be remedied by finding the right size of ear tips within the package
- The ear phones can be considered as being heavy by some users
- Being a bit bass-heavy, the bass sometimes tends to drown the other tones in the music
- The ear tips can become slightly uncomfortable for some users when used for extended periods of time
The bass you get from these headphones are quite unbelievable considering their relatively small size. The Beats urBeats in-ear headphones deliver great sound quality when compared to other headphone brands within the same price range.
These headphones will definitely thrill and delight lovers of dance and hip hop music largely because of the bass sounds they deliver, but if you are on the lookout for powerful headphones without a heavy bass and one that is suitable for all genres of music, you might want to check out other headphone brands.
That being said, Urbeats by Dr. Dre are a superb choice for itinerant users and joggers alike particularly for their noise cancellation feature and tangle-proof cord which can be clipped to your shirt when in use. They can insulate a lot of the undesirable sounds in the background while keeping your favorite music locked in, thus enabling users to enjoy their music discreetly without bothering other people within earshot of them.
They are customizable and deliver a strong sound quality, which further add to their appeal.
Summary: These in-ear headphones look absolutely amazing. You will see how great these headphones look right out of the packaging. The durability of this product takes a big hit with continuous use. If you are looking for excellent sound quality at half the price, these are the headphones for you.
