    Extremely unreliable

    I first bought a pair of beats headphones when the company was owned by Monster. When I bought these from apple the quality dropped significantly. Regardless of the 12-hour battery life the headphones randomly shut off mid-workout. Due to this, they are extremely unreliable even after resetting them multiple times. I have talked to apple support many times and have not found out what the problem is.

    Terrible

    These headphones stopped working and charging after three weeks of use. I made an appointment at Apple, they sent them out, two weeks later I got them back and no less that a week later, they started giving me problems again. Cutting out, not holding a charge.... ...now I just have this static noise coming through the headphones. I am done. Save your money and buy something else. These are junk and I will never buy another Beats product again.

    If I could give them zero stars, I would.

    Insanely Great!

    I got gifted a yellow pair of these from Customer Support a year ago. Nobody looks after you better than Apple! :-)

    I’ve worn and used them every day, closing my rings on my Watch, walking as I listen to the continuing audio adventures of Doctor Who with the Big Finish app. They also work just fine with my Apple TV, iPad and iPhone. Multifunctional excellence. Cables shmables!!

    I’m no audio maven or fusspot, I like a simple and reliable device that fits all my needs and lifestyle. The PowerBeats 3 has exceeded my expectations. If you can’t get AirPods for someone this holiday season, there’s a lot to like in these. I expect I’ll buy new headphones from Apple in 2018, given the terrific experience I’ve had.

    GARBAGE

    Only thing good about these headphones is the customer service that comes with them. Apple has always taken care of my issues promptly. Luckily these came with a purchase of an iPad, but I’ve had nothing but problems with them. I am currently on my third pair in only 4 months, and I am going to have to send them back because they are not working properly.

    SO DISAPPOINTED

    After a couple years of wanting a good pair of headphones but not wanting to spend almost $200 on them, I finally caved and bought some Powerbeats3. I am extremely disappointed and frustrated that I have had to send these back three times after only having them for 6 months. They have spent more time in the mail or being replaced than actually being used at the gym. I am on my third pair and they all completely power off in the middle of using them. You would think Apple would see all of these issues and fix the problem. I will not purchase another pair of Beats. Don't waste your money or time on them!

    Ehh...

    No doubt the sound is great, but if you work outside in the heat these aren't for you. The rubber coating will melt off. Yes.. melt. Mine did today and I'm not happy...

    These earphones were a huge disappointment!

    I expected so much more from the Powerbeats. They're overrated and they're way too expensive for what they actually should be. I'm very disappointed in my purchase. I highly recommend you to not buy these Powerbeats. They're absolute garbage and I'm never buying beats products ever again!!

    Best workout headphones period!

    I have had several pairs from Bose to lg active. The beats are the best I have owned. I recommend them to everyone.

    Amazing!!!! 😍

    I got a white pair for Mother's Day and I'm in love with them!! I've found it almost impossible to find ear buds that STAY in my ears, even the ones with loops at the top. These fit PERFECTLY right out of the box! I can't believe it! They are super secure and comfortable. The sound is amazing (music and phone calls). The setup was as simple as turning them on and pressing 'connect' on my iPhone. I love the fast charging feature. Definitely worth the money.

    Third time sending back, just plain gave up

    I wanted to love these beats, but they are unreliable. I only use them in the gym, and they keep breaking. The controls stop working, first the volume, then the pause and track up down button, then they stop charging. Customer service did replace them twice, but this time I just gave up, I would think for $200 these beats would be pretty much bullet proof. Whats even more sad is the apple name behind them! I think this further tarnishes the brand as I have apple everything, just would never buy these power beats again. They are currently in my desk drawer collecting dust.

    Not sweat resistant

    I really wanted to like these headphones. They sound great, fit great, look cool, and have an amazing battery life. But I got them for working out and they didn't work out. I went through 3 pairs in 3 months each with the same failure mode. While working out (running/lifting) they would shut off and wouldn't turn back on for a few hours. After they dried out they would turn on and work again until the first drop of sweat hit the remote (10-20 minutes into the workout) leaving me music-less for yet another gym session. Apple sent me a warranty replacement each time they failed but this meant my gym headphones spent more time broken or in the mail than they did in my ears. Bose SoundSport wireless encountered a similar issue with their headphones but they chose to do something about it recalling their headphones and replacing them with an improved design that fixed their issue. Everyone I spoke with at Apple acted like this was the first they had heard of this issue even though there are multiple 1 star reviews on this site from customers that encountered the exact same issue I was facing. I will be exclusively purchasing Bose headphones from here on out.

    Nothing but problems

    Started with powerbeats 2 last july. Bought at apple store. I have since sent in 5 pairs to apple a received 5 replacement sets, headphones last a month tops. A month ago apple sent me the 3's and I just sent them back as they have now stopped working. These headphones are a lot of money and they are a pain to get in touch with someone to send back. For $200 I would buy something else. My warranty is almost up so I will be shopping elsewhere. I use them to workout 5 times a week for 2-3 hrs, thats it. I feel like they are getting minimal use. Poor design and poor quality control in my opinion. Working on my 7th set in less than a year.

    Quality Problem with this product

    I loved my old Powerbeats 2 before Apple bought the company. They would last a couple years under constant use. I have now had 3 pair of the Powerbeats 3 fail on me, each lasting less than one month. I hope Apple's team fixes the product, so that it lives up to the reputation of the rest of their products. Very disappointing!!

    First time getting sport headphones

    I would always use the regular iPhone headphones and the bass is much better. As far as the quality of sound (low notes or lyrics) they are very clear. But what does such a good sound do when it sucks on bass.. Overprice for the lack of bass (even boosting the sound settings). And no app like Bose? I have to change the sound setting of the sound source for all my devices instead of having an app for the headphones to increase the bass only on the headphones and not on the main music source app

    First time use

    Read a ton of reviews before purchasing these some people said they love them and some hate them so I bit the bullet and got a pair found them for $150 no way I was paying $200 for them. I am loving them so far the music is plenty loud and very clear the bass hits really well, connection to phone is fast. Now the little case they give you is junk apple defiantly needs to change that. I have read that when you sweat is pretty much fry's them so I will see if that is true or not within the next few days but so far I am pleased.

    Broke twice within a year

    Broke within 6 months then rebroke again within 7 months. They replaced them with a refurbished pair with a cheap replacement power button that feels like it could break again shortly.

    Why do they break??

    I love running with the wireless beats BUT I can't stand the design. I broke my 3rd pair today. It's always in the same place, the left earbud. Improve the design, I can take the time to charge them!!!
