    very good

    Reading the comments I was afraid to get these... Ive had them for roughly a year now so I thought after many MANY hours of use I would write my review. For anyone moaning.. these work GREAT. They fit perfectly, they are light weight, sweat proof and easy to use. It took me a while to figure out the "claws" that go round your ears are adjustable. I run with them, I work with them, I cook with them. They have NEVER fallen out whilst running long distances or in sprints. I highly recommend these as they have earbuds for all sizes. No complaints on my end

    APPLE, WTF??
    resetting doesnt work!! Zero connectivity just a flashing White light after a 20 min workout?? Where is the quality, the resilience, the longevity?? Maybe they are supposed to last not more than 6 months so that you buy a new pair?? NEVER AGAIN.
    And I don’t have the receipt....I’m ANGRY here.

    Great sound quality, but not durable.

    For those looking for good sound quality, these make a good option. However, if you sweat - even lightly - these headphones are not for you. Had a pair go out, and Apple fixed it once. A few weeks later, they quit working again. Once the short warranty was up, the quoted cost to fix again was $100. Not worth it. There are cheaper, better options out there.

    Control buttons stopped working after one day. Very dissatisfied.

    Awful product won’t hold charge sound worse then competitors

    I have owned power beats 2’s and 3’s
    Both pairs were awful and will not last longer then 3 -6 months dealing with Apple support to fix hem is a joke you have to pay for it to get repaired and shipped the mark up on audio should allow them to be better st replacing them. Last time I buy any apple product for music going back to Bose

    3rd Pair in a Year...Very Bad Quality..Misleading features

    This is a product which is not what it is supposed to do...Using it in athletic activities.
    After a few uses the volume doesnt work and you cannot even power off.
    As many times as I change through the warranty they will never work... I will give up using such an expensive unreliable product for which I have spend several days going back and forth to renew...It is product to use in-house, if you don't sweat much during your activity :)

    Absolute junk

    I bought a pair of Powerbeats 3 about 3 months ago and was happy with them for about 2 weeks. Once you start to sweat with them they automatically shut off and won’t turn back on for about an hour, once they started to work again they shut off for good and wouldn’t charge. I got them replaced with a new pair and the next day of having my new pair a different issue was happening, they wouldn’t shut off this time and the light would stay off. Seriously what’s the point of spending $250 for headphones promoted for working out if you can’t sweat with them. I’ve had 5 different pairs of dr beats and every pair has broken within a year. I’m officially boycotting beats and starting a movement to make sure no one buys a pair as well. Wish me luck!!!

    These are not sweat resistant

    I’m on my 4th pair of Powerbeats and neither pair has worked for longer than 2 months. I use them maybe 3 times a week where I play basketball and sometimes hit the sauna occasionally. They usually turn off unexpectedly and don’t turn back on, apple doesn’t mind replacing them but they don’t care to elaborate on the issue. I feel like they’re waiting on my warranty to run out but I’ll just say don’t use these if you really workout as he sweat will kill them.

    HUGE disappointment and recommend not buying if you sweat

    I bought these for use while doing activity like cycling and just anything outdoors. Lately I have had an issue where they were turning off while cycling. It would turn off and when attempting to turn it back on it would flash 3 white lights. Leaving it alone over night proved it was not a battery loss issue as it would show up as still having 70%. I later found out that if you sweat heavy it will cause the headset to turn off abruptly.

    This is so disappointing and truly is misleading when its advertised as sweat and water resistance. Its not like I am swimming with them on and expecting them to work. But come on, these things are useless if it wont last a workout session.

    For this reason.. I would not suggest or recommend them for gym or training...

    NOT good for workouts

    It's hard to take my "workout to the next level" when these headphones constantly stop playing music. What's even worse is when they decide to stop charging and turn off in the middle of my workout. I've gotten them replaced twice now in under 6 months of owning them. Extremely disappointed with the quality of these headphones. I would expect a lot more from headphones that cost over $200.

    Don’t Risk it

    Got a pair as a gift in August 2017 and used them for the gym (probably 3-4 hours total per week). In mid-September I went to turn them on and they wouldn’t power up. I thought maybe the battery had died, but they wouldn’t charge. Ended up returning them to Walmart where they were bought. Walmart was nice enough to let me return them without a receipt, and exchange them for a new pair. Fast forward to mid-February 2018 and I have the same problem AGAIN.

    I originally thought my first pair was just a dud, but now the same thing has happened to the 2nd pair. I’m staying away from power beats going forward.

    Powerbeats 3 Wireless

    This is the worse product I have ever purchased. I bought these as a Valentines Gift from Target.
    Target needs to pull this product from its shelves.

    Bottom Line, they sound like an AM radio form the 50"s I gave this product 1 Star, if I could have given it a -10, I would have.

    Problems Already

    Purchased Powerbeats3 from Apple Store on 12/15/17. Use has been light, mostly calls, music, podcasts, all in a dry, temperate, static environment. Pairs easily w iPhone & iPad. Very pleased with sound & design. Disconnection during home based cell calls started approx 2/1/18 & is completely random. I no longer trust them to perform.

    I will seek exchange to another product after reading about all these hassles. Wish I had read reviews first.

    Sweat not an issue in this case.

    --+++PLEASE+++-- DO NOT BUY THESE. Go with something else.

    My girlfriend got me a pair of these for Christmas (2017). I wish I could say I love these, because they are extremely comfortable and look great! However, they didn't even last two months. I didn't even get ten uses out of them. The update software for them will recognize them when they're plugged into my computer and tells me the battery is at 63%, but they refuse to turn on. Instead, they blink a white light three times. I tried doing the reset by holding the power button and volume down button together, after which they are supposed to reset and then turn on, but it still just blinks white three times. Apple support agreed my pair is faulty and I'm sending it in for a repair/replacement. NOT EVEN TEN USES. DIDN'T EVEN GET TO ENJOY THEM FOR TWO MONTHS. Do yourself a favor and get a cheap Chinese pair of bluetooth headphones from Amazon that look comfortable. You can at least count on those not to die on you for 6-10 months.

    Beats Wireless Headphones

    After purchasing my Powerbeats3 Wireless headphones a couple months ago, I am pleased to say that I am very happy with my purchase of these headphones. I was specifically looking for something that was going to cut out the noise in the gym, the sound of cars when I ran outside, and for other uses throughout the day. Because I am an everyday user of this product when working out, doing homework, or even walking around campus, the battery life of twelve hours on one charge is nice because you do not have to worry about them running out of battery throughout the day. Because they are wireless and Bluetooth capable with even the newest phones and do not need a headphone jack to have them work. It's nice not having a cord flopping around while doing activities. Even though they still make headphones that use cords that are still good to use and still have great sound, I like having the wireless felt better personally because they connect so fast to my phone when I turn them on. I believe this product can be used by anyone simply looking for that wireless headphone with good sound quality and battery life. I have recommended these headphones to my friends who are especially looking for something different in the gym that is going to have better quality over other headphones. With the purchase of these Beats Wireless headphones, it comes with a package of new ear buds that are easy and quick to put on and replace the old ones after lots of use. It also comes with a charger and case for them, which I thought was nice to include. Some other features that come with these headphones are the different colors they have to offer such as black, white, siren red, shock yellow and flash blue. This product stands out at the gym! I believe the best feature these headphones have to offer, is that they are sweat and water resistant which helps me out because I tend to leave my headphones in my pockets a lot which then go through the washing machine. Being able to answer a phone call with your headphones and be able to have a clear conversation and not having to pause your workout is also handy in my opinion. I rated these headphones a 4/5 and have been extremely happy with them and the price on these are not too bad!

    Really not ok

    I have retured 4 pair of Powerbeats. The sound control has stopped working or increased/lowered the volume on its own. They simply do not work for sport activities as they don’t stand any sweat at all. Apple, please replace with something that works!

    I've had my Powerbeats3 Wireless for less than 3 days and part of the ear piece broke off. Other than that I love them.

    Not good

    This is my third pair in less than 12 months. But my 8th pair since 2015. I wear these everyday to the gym and that is it. The first pair the volume button stopped working and then would turn down until I couldn't hear a thing, and that happened automatically! And the other two pairs stopped charging. They have a 12 month warranty so I get them replaced but it's not the point it's a hassle as I live a long distance from the shop. Pick your game up Beats/Apple also I won't be getting another pair but instead get a refund. Don't buy these and by these I mean the ones that hook behind the ear.

    Wish i could give zero stars-Hasn't even been 30 days.

    I litarally just bought these. They were okay sound wise but no where near wireless headphones ive bought and paid half for. The worst part is after about 25 days of ownership i got through a song and a half and they just stopped working. They're not dead trust me i checked. I've tried to charge them and got no response ive also tried to reset them with no luck either. Apple need to address this situation if this problem is as prevalent as these reviews suggest. I am beyond angry.

    First Beats purchase and I'm sold!

    I bought these to pair with my Fitbit and use at the gym and they did not disappoint. I'm not sure if they're noise cancelling or not but when I'm working out I can't hear any sounds around me which is awesome. They charge really fast and sounds is amazing, especially the base. They are great for running as they don't move around at all. I was worried the clip was going to hurt my ear after a while but you can twist it so it's not constantly in the same position if it does (it hasn't yet). Can't fault these at all!!
