    Worst Headphones ever

    I bought them since 3 weeks ago. I use them at the gym only and I was happy with them on the first week. After the first week, they started to get me crazy. It turns off by itself after 40 mins of work out. I thought it was the battery but my battery almost full. When I turn it on again, it plays music only for 5 mins then it turns off by itself. it won’t work again. You have to wait for 5 mins. I don’t know what to do.

    Headphones broke fast

    Wire broke inside ear loop and the seam of the ear loop even split open. Customer service was no help. Bad product and bad support. Very poor quality for the cost

    Power beats

    Dude....these are just a waste of lots of money!!! They are great when they work, but soon they stop working and charging all together. Customer service is fabulous but the same thing starts happening. I had 2 pairs. I must have sent them back like 8x. They either fix them or send me a new pair but within 2 weeks I start having the same problem. For something so costly, this is really acceptable. I’m so completely aggravated at this point, I realize I’m better off with a cheap pair from CVS to work out with. What a SCAM! Dr. Dre., you S#$@ for this product supporting all your cars and mansion. While the rest of us are just beyond annoyed!

    PowerBeats 3 Wireless buttons stop working after work out

    After the 50 mins workout, Powerbeats3 Wireless start acting weird by keeping reducing the volume. Right after multiple time reducing volume happened, the buttons stop working. Was trying to reset it, but due to the volume down button is not responding. There is no way to reset it. I can still listen to the music on it, but lost the volume control and failed to use it to make a call.

    Not reliable

    These lose the grip with the use and the battery for mine just wouldn’t charge although they were working a day ago. I’ve been using them for a year so I understand getting weaker but not getting discharged. I bought it thinking it’s a longer batter life but not worth it if I could get AirPods for cheaper or even the bose wireless with the charging case are cheaper.
    Also to change the battery it costs 100$ which half or 3/4th the price of new ones.

    100% will stop connecting - not sweat resistant

    Had the same issue as everyone else. Not sweat resistant. Once a touch of sweat hits them they'll disconnect, light flashes 3 times, and won't reconnect for a while. Gets progressively worse until they won't connect at all.

    I had 4 warranty replacements so far, but with the margins I'm guessing they make Apple is still ahead.

    Do not buy for workouts if you are a human.

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    My dollar store headphones are literally better than these. The sound quality is horrible. Absolutely no bass whatsoever. I got them for free with an iPad Pro so it’s not a big deal but like, don’t pay money for these.

    Don’t buy

    Was excited about these headphones and they worked great for a couple of months untill out of no where they stopped working! It started with only lasting 20 minutes while fully charged to not turning on at all! I just got my FOURTH replacement a month ago and it just stopped working yesterday, same as all the other ones won’t even turn on!!! Don’t waste your money go with a different brand I’m also out of warranty now so I’m out 200 bucks

    Don’t buy if you actually workiutp

    They market these as headphones for athletes but I’ve sweat through about 5 pairs in less than two years. It’s a dang shame too because the sound quality is great, but the lack of true sweatproofing makes these a pass for anyone who actually pushes themselves in the gym.

    Pros:
    Good sound, long battery, stylish.

    Cons:
    Not actually sweatproof. If you sweat a lot they will break on you, within the first year.

    Great unitl theyre not

    I have used these beats for a little over a year for working out and training for a half marathon. I love that you are able to keep them around your neck when you aren't using them. After some use they are bound to have some wear and tear but the ear strap seems to bend funny and start to effect the way they fit and stay in your ear. Recently my ear strap from one of them straight up snapped off just from me putting them on. So that is a little disappointing and making me reconsider.

    Mixed emotions, but one thing is clear...

    If I remember correctly, before Apple purchased beats, they were a superior product. What happened? Two of my kids and I have powerbeats 3 wireless and within a short period of time, have all 3 have had issues. They either stop working completely for no reason and need replaced or absolutely will not stay connected. I have tried multiple resets, firmware updates, standing on my head, and anything else required (per support documentation,) to no avail. I would have given two stars because they sound great, but what's the point of great-sounding earphones when they never work properly?

    It connect only 1 min.

    It connect in only 1 min. After 1 min, you have to re-connect with your device. If it's ok, you can buy it. I have many wireless product but never happened this.

    Died after 4th running session

    I'll start with the strong points they have stable bluetooth connection and the hooks work really well at keeping them on your ears.The bass is heavy and strong not the headphones for your scrutinizing audiophile because there is no APT-X on these and now for the downfall they do not resist to sweat in any way shape or form I used them on a daily and after a few sweats the sweat got into the housing and they just died no turning back and above all they are too expensive and don't even offer IPX-5 that's a really bad deal come on Apple you used to make quality hardware this is a total failure to say the least.... Very disappointed will not buy again and definitely not recommend!

    Frustrating break

    My second pair has just broken the same way as the first. Both of them have broken on the charging side at the plastic joint where the rectangle piece transitions to the ear. Not sure why this joint is so fragile. Disappointing that they would not last at this price point.

    2 Sets Down

    Don’t believe for a moment that these buds are good “workout” buds. First pair was warranted and now my second pair will not power on. I only wear these when running so my cumulative time with each pair is less than 50 hours. I am deeply, deeply disappointed. I have a pair of Beats Studios, which I love; then again, I’ve never run in them. I’ve purchased many pairs of Powerbeats for family as gifts and yet....I won’t be buying any more. It’s a shame Apple latched on to “hip” and signed on for such an unreliable product. Though I love the W1 chip and functionality, I’m not happy with these at all. I have read claims of “cheap production” and “cheap materials” and while I cannot vouch for the validity of these claims based on source, I can based on experience. Get with it Apple; if these kinds of reliability issues happened on iPhones, you’d have an uprising on your hands.

    Worked for a month

    Used them twice a week for running workouts. They are great paired with the Apple Watch and music sounds great, yet I charged them the one last time and they did not turn on. I followed through the steps and nothing. Luckily they were free With Apple iPad Pro purchase and they will be sent back and get repaired or replaced for free. We will see how the second pair works.

    Garbage

    Huge waste of money. I keep talking to friends who spent 20 dollars on wireless headphones that have none of the problems of these. I just charged them for 3 hours and they still won’t turn on now that I’m at the court. When they do turn they will turn off at any moment because apparently they aren’t sweat proof. How do you make 200 dollar exercise headphones that you can’t sweat in while wearing. I rarely buy nice things but I really wanted good headphones that wouldn’t let me down. All they do is let me down. Duck you dre.

    Powerbeats3 DO NOT BUY

    My wife and I both bought the Powerbeats3 despite the high relative cost. My earphones stopped working within 6 months. Seems they are not designed to handle sweat. I sent them back to be repaired as they were within the warranty. Despite being repaired they are now faulty again. Now my wife's pair have also stopped working. Same issue- they cannot handle a workout. Both pairs are now just outside the warranty period so despite the fact the earphones are clearly faulty and badly designed, I have to pay $99 plus tax, for each pair, to repair them. I think I am better off buying cheaper earphones that will definitely work. It is really infuriating and not the product quality I would expect from apple. If you plan to by these earphones for working out, I would urge you to look at other options.
