    Terrible product!! Do not buy. Quality control at Beats is a joke. These are marketed as sweat and water resistant, the earphones are neither sweat nor water resistant. Don't make promises you can't keep!

    Wow

    • Written by Willie H from Fayetteville

    Headphones didn’t last a good six months before one of the ear piece things almost broke off. Tried to get it repaired but they want to charge me for a repair even though I brought the protection plan. “I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER APPLE PRODUCT” other then the iPhone ever again.

    WASTE OF MONEY!

    • Written by Ryan T from New York

    I had two Wireless Beats. One was the second generation, another Sports edition one. Both failed to reach two years of usages. The first one lasted for a little over warranty period, so I could not avail it anymore. Second one lasted first 6 months. Changed it twice the last 12 months. Third time, I passed my warranty period again. Both could not be TURNED ON after few MONTHS of use! It's amazing how these products can be very expensive, and yet the quality are disappointing after a short period of time. I spent $400+ for these two products and will never buy another Beats for my work out. I only used these two during my workouts, particularly in running (and I sweat a lot). These products are not really sweat resistant AT ALL!

    Super Low Quality for the Price you Pay

    • Written by Katrinah S from Las Pinas City

    This is the worst product and never buying again. We had beats2 which fell apart and was replaced as it was within the warranty. Never learned our lesson and got beats3 wireless for my husband again. After a year it wasn't charging, earpiece and volume control fell apart. So please go buy something else and DO NOT EVER MAKE A MISTAKE of wasting your money for such a low quality product. I can't express my disappointment enough for paying $200 for something so cheaply made.

    Not worth the price--very disappointed

    • Written by Victoria V from Providence

    I've had three, yes THREE pairs of these headphones. The first pair I had for about 18 months when they randomly stopped charging. I did use them a lot so I thought it was possibly from use but I sent them in to be serviced. They were sent back to me a week later saying they "could not recreate the problem" but the headphones still would not charge when I plugged them in. My most recent pair I have only had for 4 months. They have been working seamlessly but I went to turn them on two days ago and they would not turn on. When plugged into the charger the LED light indicates that the headphones are fully charged, yet when I go to turn them on nothing happens. DEFINITELY will not be purchasing these again.

    DO NOT BUY THESE.

    • Written by Sam N from Auckland

    I had the PowerBeats 2. I had 5 pairs. Then I got given PowerBeats 3. These crapped out too. This is a rubbish product and Apple should offer a refund for the people they've scammed. I'll never buy accessories by Beats or Apple again. I suggest you do the same.

    not worth a single penny

    • Written by Zeljka P from Lawrenceville

    The headphones are fine if you're just looking to listen to music on the go or whatever (Im not a connoisseur of sound quality) but if you try to use this workout headphones TO ACTUALLY WORKOUT then you will literally murder the headphones. While all their advertisements are geared towards using the headphones to workout and they say they are sweat resistant...they actually aren't. and you'll end up with headphones that won't work what so ever or ones that turn off 10 minutes into your workout and don't turn back on. So don't waste your money or time with these.

    Not sweat proof, don’t buy for workouts

    • Written by Erich B from Snohomish

    I bought thinking I could get a quality product for workout and was wrong. They are not sweat proof. They stopped working and won’t charge now. I’ve tried multiple things to get them to work and nothing. Sound quality was good while they worked so if you buy them, don’t use them for work outs.

    Don't Buy Them

    • Written by Sean B from Overland Park

    I didn't listen to the reviews and I regret it now. These headphones lasted all of 4 months. I have a tough time with earbuds and because the ear hooks are slightly bent, I can't keep these earbuds in while walking.

    The repair is $70 third party and $79 through Apple -- either way I'm hosed on a $99 purchase.

    Buyer beware.

    Great until you have to replace them when the warranty expires

    • Written by Nickolaus K from Woodinville

    I enjoyed these headphones for a year with some intermittent problems which I thought were part of the system protecting itself from sweat until now. Now I can't walk to my classes or finish my workouts without them turning off for no reason. Don't buy these unless you want to replace them every year.

    3 months in, stopped working - Apple tried to charge me $129 for repair

    • Written by Stacey C from Toronto

    I bought my laptop and these headphones came with them with a slight bend in the right earpiece - I guess they use refurbished models to cut cost. I didn't think much of it and then 3 months in, the right ear piece starts having really poor sound quality and so I send it in to repair and they said that because there's a physical bend, the warranty is void and I'd have to pay $129 out of pocket to fix it. What even is the point of a warranty if you can't get a product, that came with a manufacturer's issue, repaired/replaced? Glad I didn't spend a cent on this garbage and I strongly advise AGAINST purchasing any of these wireless earphones. You could buy a lightning to headphone jack cable for $10 and go use a wired earphones instead of shelling out $300 for absolute garbage that will break in 3 months!

    worst headphones

    This is the 3rd pair of power beats 3 I've had to exchange in the last year, its very frustrating to only have a product last a year and its an inconvenience to apple after the warranty runs out

    Second pair already dead

    • Written by Steve B from Rydal

    These things are incredibly poorly made. I bought a pair for myself and a pair for a friend. I am on my second pair after the first one just suddenly stopped working. No misuse, kept in the package they came in, etc. Just stopped charging. My friend just had her second pair die and am about to call Apple but I am sure it's going to be "sorry - warranty is over". As you can see from the other posts on this site they are just not well made. Do not buy these!! It's a shame - I really liked them while they worked!

    I received my Powerbeats as a gift. They would not hold a charge, so I exchanged them for a "new" (read: likely refurbished) pair and have the same issue with the second pair. Wildly disappointing. The price is not at all proportionate to he quality of the product.

    High price, insanely bad durability

    • Written by Nurul Nadia A from Singapore

    I'm very disappointed in this earphones. For paying such a high price for it, I was expecting it to be more durable and to be able to handle sweat for a lot better. It could only last me a year and that was all. The power button got messed up and I have to keep restarting earphones every time I want to hear my music. I didn't even dropped the earphones once and it is in such bad condition. Although the sound & bass is great but I wouldn't recommend anyone to buy it.

    Not for exercising

    • Written by Jeffrey S from EAGLEVILLE

    These do not handle sweat at all, if you are only going to wear them for casual use then they are fine but they can not get wet. I had my first pair for ~ 5 months before they stopped working, I was given a replacement pair since they were under warranty however when my replacement pair stopped working 4 months later I was told they only came with a 90 day warranty and are not covered.

    Until they fix these to be more water resistant or water proof, I would steer clear.

    Unreliable

    • Written by Simon B from Hong Kong

    I have purchased three Powerbeats Wireless Earphones.

    They were great while the lasted – unfortunately that wasn't long. The first two pairs lasted around a year each (I think) and the third pair only a couple of months.

    Not a good investment.

    Save your money

    • Written by Jonathon T from Sydney

    Bought a pair and one of the earphone drums broke within 6 months. Had them replaced under warranty but then I had an earpiece snap off after a year and Apple quoted me $250 to have them replaced. The audio is good, only if the buds fit your ears snug, but the construction quality is extremely poor. Save your money.
