Powerbeats by Dr. Dre Sport Headphones (photos)

The Powerbeats by Dr. Dre Sports Headphones are a reasonable option for style-conscious runners with money to burn, but most fitness-minded listeners would be better served by other options on the market.

Plenty of manufacturers are banking on the belief that you want good-looking tech no matter how sweaty you are, hence the Powerbeats by Dr. Dre Sport Headphones from Monster. These pricey earphones offer a secure fit, integrated iPhone controls, and a sleek look.

Anyone who likes the look of the overall Beats by Dr. Dre line will certainly be drawn to these athletic earbuds. Eye-catching chrome earpieces are attached to a sleek black arm adorned with the signature lowercase "b" logo. Rubber hooks are attached to each 'bud, keeping them firmly in place during jogs and aerobics.

The Powerbeats headphones come with a nice, hard-sided carrying case and a shirt clip for attaching the cable on your person. This will come in handy for those who want to use the integrated mic with a mobile phone.

The diamond-shaped module also bears volume controls and a single button for answering calls as well as adjusting playback on any iOS device (Play/Pause and Track Forward/Reverse).

Audio comes through as clear and reasonably warm, with a little oomph on the low end. In fact, the earphones are capable of a decent low-end punch, but only if you shove the earpieces directly into the ear, which is not how they're meant to be worn.
