We test Monster's iBeats for iPhone and iPod
The premise of the Beats by Dr. Dre line of headphones from Monster is that people "aren't hearing all the music;" much of the time, however, that has meant premium audio out of the range of most listeners. The iBeats earbuds are targeted squarely at the army of white-earbud-wearing iPhone and iPod owners making their first leap beyond the pack-in earbuds. We'll find out in an iBeats review if the lower $120 asking price still provides a good trade-up from Apple's iconic audio.
