    Sadly, they don't live up to the promise.

    The sound and fit are great but clearly this statement from the marketing blurb is inaccurate "Sweat and water resistance provides the necessary durability for strenuous workouts and weather." Mine lasted 4 months (which judging by the other reviews was good!!!)

    Waiting On my 3rd pair Not happy at all

    First sweatproof headphones that aren't. I work outside in Texas heat so I sweat a lot. The very reason I purchased these sweat and waterproof headphones. I have the powerbeats 2 also I love those but haven't made a year and I've had to replace these twice I'm so disappointed with this product as fair as this goes.

    Poor product

    Lasted 4 months then started having battery problems. Battery's started lasting about 1 hour max. Will try Bose instead.

    Dead after 2 months

    These worked great for a couple months. easy bluetooth sync, good ergonomics when working out, pretty good sound. Then the battery life got shorter and then they just died. $100 for 2 months? I can't find good bluetooth earphones from any provider!

    Bad Experience Repeatedly

    Same problem as most who report feedback. Multiple replacements due to sweat during exercise. I do not consider this headset even water resistant. No way. Asked customer service for any other options, even a credit to trade into another more dependable pair since this is my 4th replacement, and no other option given. Really bad choice for Apple and for me. Huge disappointment for the price I paid.

    Please do not buy

    I bought this beats3 in tokyo from april, until may, i have to contact apple service center to fix it because i cannot turn on the power. Well, i received assistance from apple and recieved the new one. After using the new beats3 (only 2 weeks!!), same problem occured. Now im still waiting what apple will provide me the solution of this. This is really waste of my time.

    Stopped working in under 2 weeks!

    I sweat a lot when I work out so figured since these are sweat resistant they would be a good buy...nope! After owning them for a little over a week the volume started lowering and muting itself on its own then my songs would automatically pause. I thought it was something with my phone so went to Apple 2 days in a row and then myself not Apple discovered it was the Powerbeats 3 and the volume control now just stopped working altogether. Very disappointing product and Apple needs to change these out asap because there is obviously a mis-manufacture somewhere and not worth the money.

    Unsuitable for serious running

    I purchased these headphones a few months ago on the assumption that they would be suitable for running. However, on every run I have tried to use them they have been very loose, resulting in sweat getting into the earbuds and making them very uncomfortable within about 10 minutes. I have persevered with them on many runs, but despite trying every possible combination of earbud sizes and fits they have never stayed in place, leaving the uncomfortable sensation of sweat being pushed into the ear canal during use. I appreciate that the same set of headphones is unlikely to perfectly fit every user, but given the very high price of these headphones it is not unreasonable to expect that they were comfortable for more than 10 minutes of a workout. Overall these headphones are highly disappointing.

    Bad, Bad, BAD!!!

    These headphones, while comfortable like the PowerBeats 2, have serious design and engineering flaws. Not sure how Apple can claim these as their staple workout headphones. ANY sweat will short out these headphones. Don't waste your money, go find a pair of sweat and waterproof headphones that actually work!

    £100+ FOR SOMTHING THAT MAY AS WELL BE HOLLOW!

    Recently bought for my 18th...

    POSITIVES:
    - Usual standard of sound quality, (Good sound)
    - Nice ergonomic design, fits well to the ear
    - Aesthetically pleasing overall

    NEGATIVES:
    - Inline volume button, mic etc... just will not work on iPad Pro or iPhone 6
    - can't pause or play any music/sound without getting phone out of pocket.

    Bottom line - (heh literally) is £100 + and doesn't work!!

    Useless - SAVE YOUR MONEY

    Considering these headphones are wireless they are NOT VERY USEFUL seeing as every time I try to use them the bluetooth connection breaks. I have tried them with every device I own, iPhone, laptop, iPad all with the same FRUSTRATING result. I would give this product ZERO STARS if it was allowed. Save your money and buy Skullcandy or some other reputable brand - these are junk.

    Would never recommend beats products as nothing but issues

    We are now on the 4th pair of the Wireless active earphones, the overall quality is extremely poor and not worth half the $260 price tag. The volume button keeps on falling apart, the volume turns itself to maximum when it pleases and the ear phones go off when you turn your head to one side. Beats are over rated, the sound quality matches the build quality. Our Beats pill also only works when plugged in at the wall which defeats its whole point as a portable speaker.

    Same issue avoid this product

    I didn't read the reviews before buying. I've had them for several months with some charging and turning on issues. Today they wouldn't charge and I tried everything. I called tech support they are sending me another pair. However if those fail I will want my money back. Buy something else avoid the headache.

    Unreliable Horrible Quality

    I'm surprise Apple is putting out such a unreliable product. I had the powerbeats2 and had to return them several times. Eventually after warranty expired, they completely failed. Couldn't increase or decrease volume, couldn't advance music tracks, couldn't answer phone calls.
    Hoping the 3's would correct issues, I purchased a pair. Already sent back because they wouldn't turn on. Now new pair sporadically won't answer phone calls. I expect these to fail also. I will not purchase these again. Good sound but horrible quality.

    Terrific! Buy!

    These are great. Better sound than 2. No operating problems. Fine for workouts. A little sweat doesn't hurt them.

    Had to refund my powerbeats3

    Unfortunately I have to write a bad review on these earphones compared to the powerbeats2 I find this product to be a downgrade. I had to to send this back to the store twice. I use these consistently at the gym so my earphones normally get covered in sweat especially after a run on the treadmill. These earphones lasted me a good 5 months until it started playing up on me. After a full charge it got to the point where I am only getting 5 minutes of usage or even less until it decides to switch itself off. Once I came to realise this issue I took it back to the store and got it switch for a brand new product. After having a brand new powerbeats3 the same problem arised however only after 1 month. At this point I had to get my money back. The downfall I would say for the powerbeats3 is the lack of durability to the elements. On the box it claims to be water/sweat resistant. I believe it is because it lacks a cover for the usb port unlike the powerbeats2. I used to own a pair of powerbeats2 which lasted me for a good 2 years until it started to break. There are some good points however I'd like to address. Aesthetically these are my favorite wireless earphones compared to the competition. I like the 12hr battery life and the quick charge. I hope you can consider more features for the powerbeats4 in order to get ahead of the competition.

    Disappointing

    I am on my second set of Powerbeats 3 headphones- the first pair was returned due to the fact that they didn't hold a charge and kept dying after 10 minutes, which was especially annoying while I was at the gym working out. As for the second pair, the volume decreases to mute without touching my phone or the control button, which is strange because the control button stopped working and I can't even adjust the volume from it! Both pairs failed me within 3 days of purchase.

    DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!

    Disappointed with this earphone. I keep losing Bluetooth connection while working out and believe me, it's definitely not sweat resistant. I always had respect for Apple products, but I lost my respect with this product. I want to return this product and go for another brand, but unfortunately I can't since I purchased at Bestbuy which is another great mistake ( they just have 14 days return policy). Totally disappointed!!!
