    Terrible..stay away !!

    Short version of this review, it’s terrible in every sense of the word!

    The long version:
    (1)- battery life: they lied as they claimed it will stay at least 7-8 hours on a single charge , in my testing on full charge 50% volume it only stayed for 5 hours and 30 minutes, I went back to the store, no one gave me any sort of attention and they said it’s just alright!!
    (2)- the control button is so laggy!! You can press double clicks to ff a song, its not responding, instead it plays or pause or trigger siri or whatever!!
    (3)- 3 months after I bought it, the battery literally died, I sent it to be repaired, they examined it and told me there’s a scratch on the inner frame which means it’s now damaged it’s out of warranty. They didn’t repair it and asked me to pay +80 dollars without the taxes to be repaired!!
    (4)- spoiler alert: That was the second one as I bought one 1 week ago and it kept draining so fast like 30 minuets after a single full charge and replaced it for me!!! They said it’s very common manufacturing defect !!!
    (5)- it’s classic beats headphones.. which means over priced tech, garbage quality.. literally garbage quality, it’s no way compared to other headphones out there and half the price!!

    Stay away

    Good connectivity, adequate sound

    If you have $150, and you want (reliable) bluetooth connectivity, a sleek design, comfortable ergonomics, and a brand name bluetooth earbud, this is it. The Beats X has the best bluetooth connectivity I've ever had in a pair of earbuds. The battery is adequate for the slim size, and the around the neck fit is perfect. I had a neck collar device at one point, not cute. These, are. The sound quality is meh, but the feature list for the price is very good. If you want pure sound quality for $150, get a wired pair from a lesser known brand.

    P.S. just use common sense...if you have had bluetooth issues before and hate bluetooth, don't buy these. If you run a lot with these, don't cry when they break (not workout buds), if you don't like cords, but a pair of all wireless, if you can barely afford them, don't buy them. You'll be wanting better sound quality, which you can get with cheaper wired buds. If you don't like beats, these won't impress you.

    Very, very happy - from a runner, not an audiophile.

    I'll be honest - I'm not an audiophile. I run, and I like to be able to hear my music clearly... having said that, I had a pair of bluetooth earbuds prior to this, and they didn't deliver anywhere near the clarity that I have the second I put these on. The difference was so clear that I'm compelled to write a review, which I never do. For the $$, the battery life is better, and the sound clarity is making me think "what else have I been missing?!?!?" Thanks!

    Sound quality matters

    Had the Powerbeats 2 and was using them a lot during workout. They broke twice. Then decided to get the Beats X instead of Powerbeats 3. I am so glad I bought them. First of all, the W1 chip makes it so easy to switch between my Apple devices. Second, the sound quality is amazing for such a small pair of headphones. Third, very comfortable even when running on the treadmill. Have been using them for more than a month without any issue.

    Great job again by Apple and Beats by Dre team.

    Keep doing the great work.

    Do not buy.

    I tried to give the beats the benefit, they worked for two weeks and I had connection problems after being fully charged. Get the Apple wireless earbuds, it a little more expensive but worth.

    Not reliable

    Like others, I enjoyed these headphone while they worked. My first pair lasted less than two weeks. The battery died and I was unable to recharge them or reset the headphones. The second pair lasted about a year but then the right earbud suddenly stopped working. It has no sound at all. I treat these very well. They are in the case when not used and I typically only use them at the gym 3 times a week.

    If they didn’t keep breaking, I’d give them 4-5 stars. The sound quality is good. They come with a variety of earbud and wing tip sizes to customize your fit. However I think the cord is too long, there’s a lot of extra cord hanging around the neck, and the case it comes with is not very easy to use or protective.

    Not Worth It

    Chord is too long, gets in the way. For the buds to fit comfortably secure in my ears I had to press them in such that I felt pressure. They very easily popped out when I was lifting weights and every time I adjusted the volume the bud would pop out. Not worth $120 (bought them on sale.) Used them 3 times before cuz I wanted to give it a chance and by that time I wasn't able to return them. Rip.

    Solid 4

    Buttons work now and then. Ear-hooks are easy to break. Apart from that - happy with the product.

    Lasted 3 Months

    These earbuds only lasted me 3 months. They suddenly stopped working. So I did what anybody else would do. I called Apple support. I shipped my set of earbuds and I was told that they will cost $166 to repair! That’s more than a brand new set! I really loved these till they died. Apple support was a big disappointment. I only used the at my job (I work at call center.) These earbuds failed when I wore them casually at an office. Highly dissapointed...

    Keep Breaking

    I’ve had probably 5 pairs of these because I have to keep replacing them. When they work, they’re great and the sound is awesome. However, these are probably the most untrustworthy earphones I’ve ever had. On the first 3 pairs I had, the right ear completely lost sound, so I had to go through the inconvenience of replacing them each time. Now, both ears are functional, but the Bluetooth connection cancels out after 5 minutes of use. I have to reset them every time just for an additional 5 minutes of listening time. I do not recommend these unless you get satisfaction out of dealing with Apple customer service more than listening to music. Incredibly frustrating and unreliable. I want a refund.

    Solid earphones, good for running, great sound

    My first wireless earphones and was very impressed. Sound on these was better than expected. Dumbfounded by how easy these pair with my iPhone and Macbook. Their W1 chip is legit. Only thing I wish was easier was switching the earbud cushions and wingtips (the give you 3 sizes) which wasn't as smooth as you'd expect but it's just a one-time adjustment. Running with these is good, too.

    Sound is tinny and cheap

    If anything, given Beats reputation to be bass heavy I was really taken aback. I cannot a satisfying low-end out of these unless I physically push against them towards my temple with my fingers. The iTunes equalizer is no help. Trying to increase lower frequencies only results in clipped and muddy sound.

    Honestly, my wife's cheapo $25 Bluetooth headphones don't sound much worse. You're paying for hype, not quality. Avoid or at least save your money and buy a less expensive pair of headphones.

    Disconnect disconnect disconnect

    If you want to get stressed buy Beats X
    It disconnects when you change the music, when you plug your iPhone to charge, when unplug your iPhone from charging, when you plug your iPhone to charge in your car, when you unplug your iPhone from charging to leave the car, when you turn off your car engine, when you turn on your car engine, when you open the door of your car and when you finally get it connected it will stop playing and a message will appear on your phone “accessory is not recognized”, and you have to connect it again.
    It works, but you have to press the play button one hundred times to maintain it connected, it will disconnect as I explained above; when connecting the iPhone to a power source, disconnecting it, change music, turn off car engine, turn on car engine, opening the door...
    It’s the most stressful experience I ever had.
    I read you need to update it, I did and mine is new and updated, that’s is the message that appears.
    So, it is this way, disconnects for anything, I’m not kidding.
    It’s is just unbelievable! And they charge you more than $100 bucks for that. Instead they should give you some money to treat your mental health.

    Extremely bad sound quality ... and earpiece broke off first time

    The sound is very tinny, and the earpiece broke off the first time I tried to put the wingtip on. I literally broke, with the wires inside coming off!!!!!!!!! Garbage product.

    Have to unlock phone to connect headphones

    When I turn these headphones on they don't connect until I unlock my phone. I like to use the play controls from the lock screen on my phone and having to unlock requires me to navigate to my audio app to start playing the audio. I don't have this problem with my other pair of bluetooth headphones. Is there a way to have them connect without unlocking? Why do this product have to have the pop window with a connect button?

    Other than this annoying feature the product works well. I like that it comes with so many different earbud sizes.The power button is small and hard to use. Not a good product is you want to power off and on often through out the day.

    Worked fine for 5 weeks

    They worked for 5 weeks, now won't power up. Really??? For the high price you would hope for more life than that.
