      Good until after the limited warranty ends

      For the price you pay for this, the product should not be falling apart. The left earphone literally broke apart exposing the inner wires and isn't repairable. For the price you pay for this, the product should not be falling apart. The left earphone literally broke apart exposing the inner wires and isn't repairable. The sound and Bluetooth connection was great but the way it was put together is horrible quality, even wireless earphones that you can buy from amazon for 10-15 dollars is more durable than this. Extremely disappointed and my limited warranty ended about a few months ago.

      Headphones were given to me as a Christmas gift and so far I've had to exchange them 2 times and now going on my 3rd time- headphones will not turn on. Wonderi Headphones were given to me as a Christmas gift and so far I've had to exchange them 2 times and now going on my 3rd time- headphones will not turn on. Wondering if it's because of they're not sweat proof, but it's so disappointing and frustrating!

      Won’t turn on

      I was using then non stop on youtube for 3 days then I charged them for the third day and the wouldn’t turn on. I reset. Nothing. The sound quality was perfect I was using then non stop on youtube for 3 days then I charged them for the third day and the wouldn’t turn on. I reset. Nothing. The sound quality was perfect so i’m very disappointed. Unless I can get these to work I’m not buying beats ever again, because every pair by Apple didn’t work.

This product falls shorts in durability and longevity, especially if you workout with them. I have had two separate pairs in the course of less than 3 months and both have broken. There are far better products out there for far less than these which would be a much more advisable investment.

      Good. For the first few months.

      These headphones claim to be sweat and water resistant, yet they disconnect and turn off every hour for what someone said was a feature it has for liquid damage These headphones claim to be sweat and water resistant, yet they disconnect and turn off every hour for what someone said was a feature it has for liquid damage where it just shuts off. Countless people have said they are exchanging them for the 3rd and 4th time. I will be mailing mine in soon.

    • Can I fast forward n back on the music tracks?
      • Asked by Cheryl L from Singapore

      Answer

      Yes you can. If you press the center button once it'll pause, if you press it quickly two times it'l Yes you can. If you press the center button once it'll pause, if you press it quickly two times it'll forward and if you press it three quick times it'll rewind to the beginning of the song and press three quick times again it'll rewind to the previous song.

      Why they don't include this ANYWHERE in the instructions is frustrating. It was hard to believe that I could pay $199 for a great product that wouln't forward or rewind. I found out by playing with the buttons and accidentally figuring it out.

      Press center button 1x= song pause

      Press center button 2x quickly= forward

      Press center button 3x quickly=rewind to beginning of song

      Press center button 3x quickly again=rewind to previous song

    • What is the PB3 IPX rating (e.g. IPX3, IPX4, IPX5)?
      • Asked by Christoph A from Augusta

      Best Answer:

      The Powerbeats 3 are not IPX rated at all. Maybe IPX 0 0r IPX -4 seriously. They are not water nor s The Powerbeats 3 are not IPX rated at all. Maybe IPX 0 0r IPX -4 seriously. They are not water nor sweat resistant. The entire architecture is open for liquid intrusion which leads to the ruining of circuits. I've gone through 4 pairs and each time I run in rain and or sweat, the beats lose volume and literally shut off. After that they cannot not recharge. I've managed to recharge them by warming them to 25-35 degrees celcius. Very disappointing. The sound is good but the technology is not waterproof. Buy them at your own risk.
