    2nd pair of powerbeats3 headphones and will never buy again!

    At first the powerbeats are amazing, I used them on a daily bases. But after 6months of having them the head piece broke off, luckily I was still under warranty and could get them replaced. Then the 2nd pair I received did the same thing, but because I was out of warranty and I could not get another pair.
    For a 200 dollar headphone, you think they would fix this.

    Worthless after 2 months

    My family purchased 3 pairs of these and 2 out the three stopped charging within 2 months from the time we purchased them. Brought them back to Target and they indicated that the Apple warranty was only for 2 weeks. I will give another update when the 3rd pair breaks. Unfortunately, when that happens I will not be able to give a lower score than 1 star.

    Please Do Not Purchase

    These headphones have broken Twice and are Not worth the money at all. The earpiece has literally come apart once on the left and once on the right. The first time they fixed it since I was within warranty. This time you will have to pay $99 for repair. And why? So they can break again at no fault of mine. They clearly are defected and I wanted to warn others of the Rip off . Please do not purchase these for the name brand. They are not worth it. I give them No stars.

    AVOID!!

    I bought these headphones in June. Since then the ear piece that wraps around your ear just snapped one day while at the gym. I keep them in a safe place at all times, so there should have been no reason for them to do this. I called customer service for a warranty, and they said this was a user defect. They said it would cost $99 to replace. What a joke. They also don't do a great job staying in your ears once you become sweaty. Don't buy these. Overpriced and will probably break. Oh and my husbands sound quality was terrible within a month. Terrible product.

    Do Not Buy These

    I purchased these headphones in November. They're good headphones, sound wise. Last week, they broke (the right ear hook became detached). Naturally, I sent in a service request to have the ear hook replaced/repaired. Whoever I spoke to when I initiated my service request said that a detached ear hook should be covered by warranty as it is just external damage and the headphones work perfectly. However now i've been quoted $129 CAD plus tax to replace these headphones as the damage is now apparently not covered by warranty. This headphones initially cost $250 CAD plus tax. You do the math. I've had these headphones for ~3 months. Not worth it.

    Lots of problems then quit working all together

    I've had these for a little over a year. I've had problems with them from the first month. Sometimes they won't turn on, sometimes they won't connect, sometimes the lights flash forever and the headphones won't do anything. The apple support forums are filled with people complaining of a huge number of unique problems with their earphones and very few solutions. As of this week they will no longer hold a charge for more than 5 minutes and it costs $79 to repair that. Terrible product. I should have read the reviews first.

    Love them!

    Been using my PowerBeats3 for a few months now with no connectivity issues and no parts breaking/malfunctioning (knock on wood!) These actually connect to my devices faster than my AirPods, and their battery life is amazing! I love the adjustable over-ear hook for its security, and the in-line controls that are familiar from the EarPods. Serves me well during workout; they don't fall out (if you use the right bud size). I sweat a lot, and they're always wet afterward, but so far, still working!

    Horrible Sound

    I was very disappointed in these. For the price, I experience extend the sound to be a lot better. I knew immediately that the sound was inadequate

    Rubber tips

    The rubber tips of my Powerbeats3 are loose. They came off from earbuds many times. I had to glue them to keep them in place. I finally lost one piece yesterday. The paid replacement price is $ 13+. Apple should make their products better. Knock offs works better.

    Shut down in cold weather

    Despite the photos of people using these to ski and snowboard on the beatsbydre website, these shut down within minutes if used outside below freezing. When I first reported the issue and asked if they should work outside when it was below 0C, (32F), the agent advised that they should, and I arranged to ship mine in for service. Got the replacement ones back, they also shut down when I went outside with them. The agent I spoke to that time said that they do not work in "extreme" temperatures. I don't consider freezing to be extreme. If this is "extreme", they should not advertise pictures of them being used for skiing and snowboarding with snow falling and on the models shoulders. It only snows below freezing...
    This would have been a factor in my decision making process, and a big warning should be on the package and on any websites selling them of this limitation.

    Bad headphones

    Won’t pair, battery runs low too fast. Nothing more than mediocre sound. Nothing but trouble. Ruined two workouts.
    DON’t BUY

    Just stop working

    Had these for a little over 3 months, and I only use them to work out. Tried to charge them and they just wouldn't come on. For $200 I expect a pair of headphones to last me over 3 months. Would not purchase again. Waste of money!

    Poor Quality / Poor customer service.

    Buyer beware. The wraparound earpiece broke from its mount while placing them into the small black pouch. I had them only a few months. Apple support refused to fix this stating its outside the warrantee boundaries. They wanted $99 to send them back to get repaired. They are now in the garbage. These earphones are made on the cheap and they want top dollar.
    Never again will I purchase something from this company.

    Poor product

    After a year the earphones started malfunctioning: Siri activated without any reason, volume goes up or down unexpectedly, or shuts down unexpectedly too. I've just bought Bose for the same price. Will throw Powerbeats 3 to trash once I receive the Bose one.

    Major Failure

    Apple really need to address the issue with the powerbeats3, this will be my 5th replacement units and I really hope this time it will work as advertised which is sweat resistance without any unexpected failure.

    Power BEATS You

    Let me save you the trouble. I have had 3 of this product, two of which I've made a one for one exchange at QBC and they all "performed" the same. Here's the sequence of events after sale/exchange
    1. 3 months - the control pod will not respond as it should, after a week more or so it stops working altogether
    2. 4 months - the battery will run out faster, way down from its touted 8 hrs to just 30 minutes
    3. 5 months - The battery will not hold it's charge, as in charged fully in the afternoon and left unused but totally flat by the next morning!! This occurs for a few charging cycles and then it finally goes DEAD. You just paid near $300 for a useless piece of colourful plastic is what it is.

    Utter waste of your money!! Do not buy!

    Poor quality

    This device did not hold up to my workouts or running. The rubber on the volume buttons ware away after minimal useable and one of the buttons fell out. I was outside my warranty and all they could say was replace it for another $100. Poorly made and not worth the money.

    Junk do not waste your money

    Had a set for less than 6 months the wire jacket began the come apart conntected support the get the item repaired under warrranty. Sent them back and of course the warranty doesn’t cover the problem and they want 99 dollars to repair. This product is junk as the reviews show and dont depend on apple the stand behind it.
