    LOVE these earphones

    Felt the need to comment on my experience with these earphones since I'm seeing such negative reviews. I am a runner and can attest to the fact that these earphones stay in my ears throughout my entire run without fail. At first I had to try out the different sized earpieces that were included, but eventually I found the right fit. I also love that I can turn the volume up fairly high without anyone in my vicinity hearing my music. Give these earphones a shot!

    Love To Hate You

    A LITTLE HISTORY

    I've been buying these since they first came out. I have honestly gone through more than 10 of these from buying new ones and getting them replaced. I work out a ton and run outside but I wouldn't consider myself someone that overly sweats. BUT, for some reason, since I use these 5-6 times per week and about 1.5 hours per average on those days, they die around 4-6 months.

    GOOD AND BAD (MORE BAD)

    The sound quality and fit is what I love the most. Design to the packaging is on point (great job, Apple). HOWEVER, the quality is just poor and not good on any standards. You would think that they are testing rigorously, but what's happening with mine? I am not a pro athlete and expect much more. I wish that for the PowerBeats 4, they truly fix the guts of these because I would be a happy camper. I give it a one because if it doesn't function, charge, or similar, who cares if they look great.

    Wish I could give lower rating

    Battery just stopped working. Not sure what’s going on. Much better products out there for training purpose headphones. Stay away.

    Consistently disappointing wireless headphones

    Clearly the price that you pay does not always match with the quality.

    I'm not especially picky. For me, the only thing wireless headphones have to do is: a) stay in my ears; b) connect to my phone; c) hold a charge.

    Amazingly, this $200 piece of junk has managed to fail at all three, repeatedly over the last year. It finally just decided to stop charging altogether and I'm so annoyed.

    Even when they were not broken, they were mediocre at best. Even the sound quality, which was good, was compromised by the poor fit and weight of the headphones causing them to constantly slip out of my ear.

    Will never buy beats products again.

    Unreliable even with great sound

    All i can say is... don't waste your money. Beats are the worst! Ive had over 7 pairs of Power Beats (yes, 7) because i constantly send them back to get repaired. Blinking red lights, blinking white lights, never holding a charge... you name it, it's happened to me. Terrible, overpriced product. Will NEVER buy again.

    Not sweat resistant

    Had these for a little over a year and just stopped charging one day. I sweat a lot when I workout so I'm guessing it's because of that. Very disappointing for the price.

    Good, when they actually work

    I love my PowerBeats 3 so long as they're connected to my phone/tablet and actually producing sound. The problem is, and this has happened a few times in my long experience with them... they'll just randomly disconnect and then not connect again. Once they shut off I'd try to put them back on again but the indicator light just flashed white three times. I tried to reset them using multiple different methods, I tried checking for software updates, charging them (not only did this not work but the battery didn't even go up), renaming them, and I even contacted Apple Support who were fine but still couldn't find a solution. My only option was to pay $130 CAD to service them which at that point (they were my second pair as my last ones were damaged) didn't even seem worth it if they were just going to do this again after a while like the last time I fixed them. Not only that but the support things that go around your ear just fell off like it was nothing... normal everyday use not like I was putting them through war.

    I'd say just stay away from these things. I've heard lots of people having issues with them but I've also heard and seen people have no troubles with them... but why take the risk instead of just buying another product?

    This is how music should be represented!

    I always get beats, but these are just amazing. I have the ability to workout, do my school work at home. Listen to music as if I’m really there. I can truly say the feeling of being immersed into the music is phenomenal I literally can feel the bass through my ears I love it! I can’t hear anything else but my music. Which for me is the best feeling! I can multi task. Gosh I love this product I wouldn’t have it any other way. The battery life last longer so I can go to both jobs. And workout without charging in the middle of the day. Best headphones ever!

    Product is not sweat proof

    My beats powerbeats 3 are not worth the money. I been having issues with mine while I work out and turns out it my sweat that makes them turn off. It was frustrating trying to figure what the issue was from charging, resetting them and taking good care of them. What a waist the one thing need them for is what I cant use them for.

    Not worth the money

    I have only had these ear phone for less than a year. The ear hook broke off due to normal everyday use. I used them every day and stored them in the provided case and they still broke. It is not covered under warranty because it is considered accident damage. A huge waste of money don't buy.

    Seriously? These aren't sweat-proof?

    "Sports" earbuds should probably work during...you know...sports? I had mine a little over 13 months, but probably only used them for running about 10 hours during that time due to an injury. The injury heals, I start to run again, and within 3 uses they fail just like everyone else's seem to be. They last about 15 minutes of exercise, and then just turn off. It definitely seems to be sweat related. I loved them while they lasted. Of course, they failed about a month out of warranty.

    Don't last very long - only 6 months

    I've gone through 3 pairs. Apple has been graciously willing to replace them. All three seem to have the same problem after 6 months of use. They stop turning on and when plugged in, they flash red and white. Nothing I can do to fix it. Happened with every pair like clockwork around the 6 month mark. Don't wast your time or money. Buy something else.Save yourself the headache.

    3rd pair of Power Beats (3) and they are suddenly no longer working

    My 3rd pair of Power Beats (3) and they are suddenly no longer working again..... plugged them into my MacBook Pro and synched to the Beats site and it says they do not need an update. Just won't turn on. Totally dissatisfied at $199 a pair, they are not worth the constant trouble.... they are not reliable---very annoying when you get to the gym and get situated for a workout and NO MUSIC... sigh.

    Very disappointed

    I have purchased the 2 and 3 version of beats and I feel as though I’ve wasted a lot of money. Both pair have lasted about a year and I refuse to buy again. Ridiculous

    3rd PB3 - excessive sweating shorts out unit

    when they function, sound is great (for the small size) ... however, they DO NOT LAST!!

    purchased new on 1/20/2017 ... shorted out 6/1/2017 ... apple store replaced them free with the same make/model ... 3 months later, same issues/probelm ... same resolution (replace the model) ... 7 months later, same problem ... excessive sweating shorts out the unit (probably W1 chip, but without ripping it apart, i can't be sure) ... could be the battery leads as well ...

    stay away if you're an avid workout person!

    STAY AWAY HORRIBLE

    Just dont. These are beyond awful quality. I have now gone through my 5th pair of Powerbeats. They consistently break/do not work after using them on a regular basis. They advertise that they are sweat proof.....after using them for working out, they break. They simply just fall apart and the buttons stop working. Do yourself a favor and go get the Bose Soundsport- way better quality overall.

    Just Horrible

    I received the Powerbeats as a gift, and they have consistently broken/fallen apart 4 times now. I had insurance for the 1st year luckily, and have had to pay out of pocket to replace them twice-- this will be my last. I am switching over to the Apple earpods or the Bose wireless headphones. The Powerbeats are great the first few weeks/month, but then the Bluetooth wont connect, and then the volume buttons on the headphones wont work. Save your money and go with another product. Beats seem to be on the decline.
