    Sweat Shorts Inline Control; No Lightning

    Using these headphones while working out and sweating causes the sweat to get into the inline controls and short the system out. Also, why micro USB and not a lightning port for charging like the AirPods or BeatsX? That's a big deal breaker when Apple insists on sticking with lightning and not switching to USB-C. At least make all your products use lightning then! The sound quality is alright, though SoundSports are much better, also use micro USB, don't short out when dripped on with sweat, and are $50 cheaper. It's a big shame because the fit of these headphones is really nice, but they need a serious overhaul.

    Poor performance

    I purchased the beats wireless headphones for use during workouts. When I am in the gym I work hard and sweat a lot. The beats sound great and they are comfortable to wear....but they can't withstand actually working out. I have never had a single pair that has worked for more than 6 months. I have sent in for repair on 5 separate occasions. I absolutely would not recommend this product to anyone.

    3rd pair in 1 month!

    This is very simple, people: THIS IS NOT A SWEAT PROOF PRODUCT!

    I just received my 3rd pair in last than 1 month. The first worked 3 times and gone. The second was even worst. It got lost during the first workout.
    After sweat, the volume come crazy and the battery don't charge anymore.

    Apple say it can`t change for another product!! WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

    BTW: I had come back to my 1st generation Ipod Touch with the incredible wired fone. Works like a charm!

    This Powerbeats 3 is complete garbage!!! The engineers behind this product should be ashamed!

    Great sound

    I love the sound of these. I had the first Powerbeats that were wired and didn't like them because of the wire. The only thing I don't like about these is.....they can't link to two devices.

    Power and switch button to be ameliorated

    Hi, Please update your PowerBeats3 with these ameliorations. 1st : The power button is not easy to find, just add a little bump on the power button to more feel it on the fingertip. 2nd: The switch stop/play button is also not easy to find. Like EarPods, the volume buttons are edges of more picking. To be honesty, the sound is really great. Good work. Pierre

    Great Quality Sound but can be uncomfortable

    The earbuds have amazing sound quality and definitely didn't disappoint when it came to sound quality. They also fit quite snug in my ear and don't come out by accident. However I found that after wearing them for a while they caused a considerable amount of pain in my ear lobe and would leave a certain part of my ear in pain for quite a while. I also found that the actual rubber attachment that goes in your ear seemed to fall out constantly after a while. But overall definitely worth buying for working out and other sports.

    Beats being considered as a high quality premium brand, these headphones are absolute garbage. I workout intensely every day and can no longer rely on these headphones anymore. Very good customer service in sending me a new pairs, so far 6 returns however this process if very inconvenient as i have no headphones to use for my workouts. Apple claims for them to be sweat proof, however I myself along with other customers can confirm this not to be true as from the poor reviews about this product.

    Volume control and playback button has stopped working

    I bought this headset thinking it would be such an upgrade for me doing a lot of cardio session, today I had one of those sweaty session and literally found sweat inside the volume control, I thought this was water resistance.

    Very disappointed with these earbuds after only having them for a couple months. The cable management clip and earbuds have already come off and now have to resort to the extras provided of different size.

    No sweat proof

    After a month using it, i face the same problems described here. With sweat starts to stop and change the songs. Now, after all night charging it, stops after only 30 minutes using it!! Frustrated :(

    The quality is lacking especially for the price.

    In order to block out sound the volume must be maxed. They also fit poorly constantly slipping out of my ears.

    Good but over priced

    Looking for a snug fitting, light weight, good (not great) sound quality pair of wireless ear puds? These are the answer.
    BUT, the quality of Beats by Dre products are poor and cheaply made. You must maintain your headphones and handle them with care (i.e. you can't just toss them in your bag after you finish your workout). And MUST be cleaned properly after each use to prevent damage caused by dirt or sweat.
    The battery wont last a life time and I find myself charging them more often then not, but they take less than 30 mins to fully charge so it's not a hassle.
    APPLE SUPPORT has been AMAZING with my purchase as one ear had stopped working entirely, apple support was there to provide the needed repairs.

    - Light weight
    - Fits comfortably and does not fall out of ears
    - Quick charge (less than 30 mins)
    - Easy to clean
    - Apple support/ warranty
    - Good sound quality

    - Price $$$
    - Poorly made = prone to damage
    - Must be extremely cared for
    - Does not completely block out sound (but they are ear buds so this should be expected)
    - Battery does not last that long

    Battery and Charging Issues Need to be FIXED!

    I have went through two pair of these head phones in less than a month. While i love the color options, sound and the theory that the battery last 12 hrs, I have not seen that with the two I have experienced. I received one pair and used it 3 times, 3 one hours runs, the battery died so I went to charge them and only got a flashing red light. I contacted service and they promptly said nothing could be done but sent out a new pair that same day. When I received the new pair a week later the same thing happened, 3 hours use and went to charge them but after about an hour the red light went out and now they won't even turn on or charge now. If they can fix this battery and charging issue I think they would be great quality but until then, they are not that great as you will spend more time sending them back and forth than actually getting use out of them!

    On my second pair of power beats in 3 months (first Powerbeats 2 then the 3's) and already problems, not holding charge, taking forever to charge, losing connection constantly at the gym. Like seriously I charged them for 6 hours they were at 100 % turned them off, 5 hours later I turn them on and there down to 50% without being used. Like comon Apple give your head a shake, guess I'll be returning these as well and moving on to another company.

    iPhone7+ Best Sound Best Battery! Seemless!

    Just got my yellow set in the mail 5 days ago so can't speak on longevity, how ever they are built very well. Great solid construction, quality wire with the slip clip to let you keep it loose on the neck or tight on the back of the head. The battery life on these 3s are incredible. I work long hours at home shows and needed a light rugged great sounding Bluetooth with call tech. Perfect match with my iPhone 7plus!

    These are great, until they break

    I've been having issues with my beats2 and have gotten them replaced a couple of times at the apple store. The first ones I've had worked for a few months and then the remote/buttons came apart while I was on my run. I had it replaced and the second one lasted a few workouts before the remote broke again. The last time I went back to the apple store to get a replacement, I was upgraded to the beats3. I was very satisfied with it because the sound quality was way better. But this time, my beats3 only lasted a few weeks before it started having issues in syncing to my iphone and the remote did not work at all. I feel like I'm visiting the apple store way too often just for this one product. Like most of the reviews here, these beats earphones start breaking if you use them in sweaty workouts. I wish that wasn't the case since I really like the design of them. Since these earphones are meant to be used for workouts, I don't know why the durability is so bad. Apple should definitely revise them soon!

    By having these earphones for 1 day I went for a 10 km run(sweating a lot) they stopped working. Every time I put them on while song is playing it's pausing the song and then continuing it again. I went to the shop afterwards and they say "sorry we can't change them because it's BEATS" DO NOT BUY THIS EVER!!!!

    Great sound, but battery won't stay charged

    Great sound, and stay well placed when running. Didn't use/have that long, but battery no longer stays charged. Very disappointing!
