    Horrible Product

    My first set died due to sweat issues shorting out the volume control. So I got a new pair through my warranty. Now my second set is turning itself off randomly after a hard workout this morning.. Sweat and water resistant must mean light sweat and misty rain. Terrible way to spend 200 bucks.

    Volume stopped working after a year.

    NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!! Earbuds stopped working just shy of a year using them. I only use the headphones to run with which is what they are for and the volume/play/answer button stopped working. Yet somehow the volume will raise, lower and even stop my music about 20 minutes into my run. Also they will not turn off after i turn them on. I was asked if there was water damage and the only time that they came into contact with liquid would be with my sweat. Which again, if they are made to workout with, that should not be an issue.

    Pls don’t buy this

    I bought these headphones with confidence that they would last a long time. But within 3 weeks they just stop working. It won’t charge or turn on. The only time the device gets wet is when I’m exercising other than that it was kept in perfect condition. These are almost £200 headphones and they are completely and utterly not worth it. The fact that it is “sweat resistant” is an absolute joke.

    Stopped working. Reviews are true do not buy!

    I never leave bad reviews but I am really disappointed in this product. I used these headphones maybe once a week on average and took good care of them and never got them wet. I've had them for 13 months and all of a sudden this morning they died. I called Apple support and they told me I had to pay for the repair/replacement (I think $90 w/o shipping). Before I bought these I read about the bad quality and dying but I didn't think it would happen to me. It did and I strongly suggest that you trust me and do not purchase these headphones.

    2 Pairs 2 different issues lead to breaking

    I have bought two different pairs of these headphones now. Both have broken on me within a year! The first pair the sound got all muffled for awhile and then eventually just wouldn't play music. The second pair just randomly stopped working one day. They won't hold a charge and when you plug them in it just flashes red and white. I tried resetting both pairs and all other potential fixes and neither worked. For $200 a pair it is absolutely ridiculous that 2 pairs would break and for different issues! Do not buy!

    Battery life not as advertised

    I read the reviews on these headphones before I purchased and against my better judgement purchased them anyway. I really wished I would have listened and not bought them, waste of money. They worked great for about a month, then the battery would not hold a charge.

    Dead headphones, killed by sweat

    Friendly message to the Apple / Beats design team: I'm disappointed. I bought these (expensive) headphones with the expectation that they would be well-designed to cope with a typical workout. Today, while running and enjoying my music, I heard a screechy electrical sound in the headphones followed by an increase of volume. It seemed that sweat had gotten into the volume control and shorted it out. After getting home and trying various ways to fix the issue, it's clear that the headphones are dead. They won't pair with my iPhone or MacBook Pro. Thirty seconds of Google searching revealed that many others have this same problem. The Powerbeats3 can't handle sweat.

    These are expensive headphones designed for workouts, and they don't work.

    The Ear hook broken

    I have been using this product for 1 year. It has great superb quality sound, but unfortunately I am not happy with the built quality of the product as in its ear hook broken from its base. No drop damage or anything. Its just separated from its base. :(( (SN:FTRT219AGQ65 )

    Charging issue

    So had these for a month then had to send them in to get replaced, due to a charging issues. Started off as them not holding a charge long then just not charging at all. So took em in got given a “brand new” pair about three days later. I thought it was awesome apple replaced them and had a crazy fast turn around, and then about three weeks later I am having now the same problem as I did before. Not sure if this is a problem with all of the power 3’s or what but I most likely will end up buying a different brand after getting these fixed. Would not recommend these to anyone.

    Terrible...DO NOT BUY

    Purchased 2 pairs for running and had a total of 5 replacements on them. Horrible product, doesn't hold up to working out or running. It's painful to deal with apple customer service and they were less than helpful. For $200 there are definitely better products out there and cheaper. DO NOT BUY this. It's not sweat resistant as indicated or as advertised. Save your money. I would rate this 0 star if there were an option.
