The iBeats come in their Monster iBeats Snap-Shut pouch with an assortment of inter-changeable rubber iBeats earbuds. They don’t come in a retail box meaning we are able to keep cost to the customer low.
Then solder the shortest wire to the finish end of the jack (the thinnest soldering end), which is the White wire. And so on until the Yellow wire being soldered to the wider edge of the jack. Remember, you should solder just a tiny bit, not much, and the best way possible. Do it as much polished way as possible since the iBeats metal exterior is not flexible and has a very limited space. Examine it before soldering closely.
So are they worth $120? Yes. The iBeats are quite obviously a major improvement to the earbuds that come with iPods and iPhones, and most headphones under $100 in general. Simply put, you’d be hard pressed to find a more comfortable, higher quality in ear headphone at this price point. The iBeats are the sweet spot between price and quality. The controls definitely need some work in a future model, but in the meantime it’s nice to have them at all, I suppose. The iBeats definitely deliver in nearly every other area. I can easily recommend these headphones to anyone looking for quality in ear audio at a less than ridiculous price.
