With a new button that links directly to Google Assistant on your phone, Boses otherwise…
Moving down the cable from the earpieces, youll find a few other features worth noting. The first is an inline module that contains a mic, a volume toggle, and a multifunction button that answers calls and controls playback for the iPhone or iPod. The Diddybeats also include a slider below that help with tangles on the Y, not that we noticed much of an issue with that during testing. The nice thing about a ribbon cable is that it tends to not twist up as much. At the Y junction is a nice, metallic accent piece with Monster and Diddybeats logos stamped on it.
The first thing youre likely to notice upon extracting the Diddybeats from their Monster packaging is that theyre very wellconstructed. From the glossy conical earpieces to the thick, flat ribbon cable to the reinforced goldplated Lplug, everything feels polished and durable. And, of course, they wouldnt be Beats without some stylish accenting throughout. Each earpiece features a lowercase db logo on the outer edge and a bit of ed leatherette trim wrapped around it. You have your choice of three s for the trim and cable black, white, or light pink. The black definitely seems the least likely to show wear and tear, as the other two look like theyd pick up dirt easily.
The Diddybeats headphones offer a durable design with nice, stylish accents; sound is impressively balanced; and the package includes useful features such as inline mic with volume and playback control for the iPod as well as a wide variety of eartips.

The BadThe Diddybeats earpieces are on the large side and can have a tendency to push out of the ear.
It might be said that the best people to create audio products such as headphones are musicians. That was certainly Monsters feeling when the cable company teamed up with Dr. Dre to create a line of headphones vetted by the hip hop legend. The Beats line encompasses everything fromfull studio cansto a pair ofglittery buds from Lady Gaga. Now, Monster and Dr. Dre have brought Sean Diddy Combs into the fold, and he has introduced yet another model to the line, the Diddybeats High Performance InEarHeadphones. The earphones certainly reflect the rappers shion sense, but whats even better is that they offer useful features and good sound quality as well.
The sporty version of Jabras already wireless earphones have a few extras that put it…
We put the Diddybeats to the test with a playlist of tracks from a variety of genres and were pleased to note that these earphones are capable of providing good audio for those with eclectic taste. Playback is very balanced, with plenty of detail through the high end and a low end that thumps without overpowering. If anything, music could stand a bit more sparkle, and mids are slightly lacking in that buttery quality we crave, but songs still sound plenty warm and rich and the midrange isnt overly forward. To be clear these arent audiophile earphones, but they will no doubt satisfy the average music listener. So if you like lots of different music and want a pair of porle headphones that dont look like the rest, the Diddybeats are a great choice.
Jabras new truly wireless earphones are superior to the AirPods in some ways and only…
The Bottom LineThe Diddybeats earphones offer a great balance of , durability, features, and sound quality, them a good option for anyone looking for nice inear headphones with some character.
The one issue with any sort of extra weight on the cable is that we found that the earbuds tended to slip out of our ears. This could also be because of the large of the earpieces or their cone shape not meshing well with our testers ears. In any event, we couldnt get a secure fit, but given the startling array of eartips in the packageone foam set, six of the standard silicone models, and two tripleflanged tipsthis will likely not be an issue for everyone. Monster also includes a irly basic travel pouch in the package.
