The iPhone, a cellphone made by Apple, comes with a set of earphones with a remote control and a microphone, but if you prefer to use third-party headphones for listening to the iPhone’s audio, one choice is Beats by Dr. Dre brand headphones. Beats are rugged and lightweight headphones that work with phone calls, music and video chats on your iPhone.
The Beats by Dr. Dre headphones for the iPhone plug into the headphone jack located on the top left edge of the iPhone, next to the “On/Off” button. After you plug the Beats into your device, you insert the ear tips into your ears. Audio from people talking to you during phone calls or while playing music and videos will play through the headphones instead of the iPhone’s built-in speaker.
The cable of the Beats by Dr. Dre headphones has a remote control called ControlTalk. Use it to answer an incoming phone call without having to pick up your iPhone. You can also use it to control audio playback, including pause, next and previous track, and volume control. ControlTalk also enables you to have a hands-free phone conversation, a convenient features when you are driving a vehicle.
Beats provides high-resolution sound through the headphones, with built-in audio drivers designed to present deep bass sounds and clear representation of high-frequency audio. The Beats headphones also have ear tips that form a seal to block out external noises, enabling you to better hear your phone calls, songs, movies and video chats.
Beats are made with tough cables made by the Monster audio technology company. The cables are lightweight and come with a protective jacket that keeps them free of tangles. They are designed to prevent the knotting and snarling that can occur with earphone cables when you shove them into a pocket or purse.
