First Look: Diddybeats High Performance In-Ear Headphones

1:10 /

The Diddybeats earphones offer a great balance of style, durability, features, and sound quality, making them a good option for anyone looking for nice in-ear headphones with some character.

And the scheme and stylish of your phone's monster may not have a corner on the market but there's no denying that its Beats by Dr. Dre brand is among the more fashionable lines currently available. Unsurprisingly, the Diddybeats, a collaboration with Sean "Diddy" Combs, are no exception. True to form, the rapper/producer was closely involved in the design process of these earphones. Evidence is clear in the details. The earpieces in particular stand out. Wrapped in leatherette and accented in shiny silver. Diddy also had a hand in choosing the color options which are black, white, and a rather nauseating pale pink. The cable which descends from each earbud and terminates here in a reinforced gold-plated L plug is the flat ribbon style that the Beats brand is becoming known for. Features are not sparse either. The Diddybeats feature Monster's Control Talk inline remote and mic for the iPod and iPhones, and the package includes a carrying case and an impressive array of ear tips. I'm also pleased to report that these earphones offer nicely balanced audio playback with good clarity and a bass response that is sufficient but not overpowering. At $150, they're not exactly a steal but they are a solid buy for those with varied listening taste. I'm Jasmine France for CNET and this has been a first look at the Diddybeats headphones.
