Beats™ by Dr. Dre™ urBEATS 2 In-Ear Headphones with ControlTalk™, Blue

Product information

Enjoy driving Beats-quality sound in a more discreet package with the urBEATS 2 in-ear headphones. Engineered to perform - they deliver thundering bass, punchy vocals and a detailed midrange that will redefine your listening. They’re even made from solid metal to last longer and provide more purity when listening at higher volumes.


  • Solid metal housing reduces vibration to cut down on sonic distortion. It also make these headphones much tougher to withstand life on the move.

  • Custom drivers unlock a whole new level of detail in your music. Bass, treble and vocals are perfectly balanced - even at lower volumes.

  • A built-in ControlTalk microphone lets you switch between enjoying your music and chatting to friends seamlessly. Along with the remote, you can even skip between tracks and pause you music.

  • Anti-tangle cable construction allows you to spend more time listening and less time fiddling with annoying snarls and knots.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cool and great sound but won't last. Fantastic product with volume control, cool colour options (loved the red) and good bass depth. However, now on second pair in a year and the left side earbuds losing sound. Hugely dissappointing. Expected more from Dre/Apple. 02 February 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Terrible These headphones gave great sound quality and were comfortable to wear. The major downfall were that they only lasted about 2 weeks and I had to get 2 replacements. 01 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best earphones I've owned I've wanted some Beats by Dre since they were first released but always debated over them because they are expensive and I worried they were just a costly way of being fashionable. Yep they are, but these earphones sound incredible. I don't think they are as comfortable as Apple EarPods (I have very small ears) but they stay in perfect and there's no feedback at all which I've found from using cheaper earbuds. They are really light to wear and a perfect accessory with the iPhone. I love the colour, would have preferred the nikki minaj pink but that isn't sold by John Lewis having said that the Hot pink is beautiful. The buds are metallic and the wire matt. Cord is completely tangle free and as someone that uses earphones daily this is a life saver! I haven't had them long so I'm skeptical about how long they will last after reading reviews but as a general rule earphones don't usually last me more than a year. I've purchased insurance though so it's not something I need to be too concerned about. Overall these are pricey but they look worth it and they sound soooooo good! 28 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant sound Bought these for my boyfriend for Christmas. Theve got brilliant sound quality very loud and come with lots of different and spare earphone attachments. Also come with a carry pouch for them. 03 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not very durable I bought thee headphones for my grandson's "special" birthday in September because he loves his music. He says the sound quality is excellent but he has had to take them back three time in the four months he has had them. He should be able to remove them from his ear and wind them up without wires coming free all the time. I would expect this of any headphones, no matter what the price. I hope the manufacturers will look at reinforcing the connections so that this otherwise superb product does not continue to be let down by this fault. 26 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product and excellent service by JL Ordered this via website and am not disappointed - ordered on the JL website and asked for it to be sent to my local Waitrose and "lo and behold" - was advised to visit the Waitrose next day after 2pm - bingo - the product was there for me to take Actual product is excellent also - good sound, good noise reduction and good bass WELL DONE JL & DR BEATS 19 November 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointing These are great looking and great sounding earphones. The bass is brilliant and for use in the gym especially, they stand out among others regarding fit and sound quality. Sadly after 2 months, the left earphone stopped working. John Lewis were excellent in replacing them however the second pair then broke after just a week. Regrettably I've changed for a more durable pair but nothing matches the comfort and bass of these. 18 November 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not very durable I'm very impressed with the sound quality of these but the Control Talk button has stopped working after 3 months. It did feel a bit plastic but I thought it would at least last a year. Looks like returning it tomorrow and upgrade to a more durable pair of in-ear phones. 30 September 2013
