Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic
Product No Longer Available
How are these compared to the Beats by Dr. Dre Tour ControlTalk In-Ear Headphones from Monster.I've had these and loved them but i want to compare.
Is the quality and clarity the same with both?

In terms of price: no comparison...
In terms of quality - I bought my Apple in-ear quite some time ago, so I never made a direct comparison, however:
I tested the Dre Beats recently, and ended up buying a pair of Sennheiser BT210 bluetooth instead, the sound from the Sennheisers was far superior.
Having now compared the Sennheiser to the Apple in-ear, I would say that the Apple is close, but not quite as good as the Dre Beats - both are still very good, but neither approach the Sennheiser (which of course is not in-ear, so to be expected).
In a quality-for-price contest, I'd go with the Apple every time...
Hope this helps.

Honestly, those headphones will not be hard to beat. Much of the money they cost goes towards the brand name [Monster] and the celebrity endorsement [Dr. Dre], but for what you spend you could get much better sound quality from real high end brands (Ultimate Ears, Sennheiser, etc.) or you could get comparable sound for less.
