    For non sports

    • Written by Chris V

    I’ve had these earphones for about a year now and overall they’re aren’t bad. Not great, but not amazing. I’ve have yet have a charging issue, they hold a charge for several hours as described, the sound is pretty good, base isn’t bad either. It would be nice if they stayed in the ear though. When doing a vigorous workout such as interval training and I’m sweating, they tend to pop out and it’s very annoying. Still not a bad earphone.

    Rubber buds

    • Written by Stephanie G

    I love how my Beats play and sound but I’ve lost so many rubber buds it’s ridiculous!! I’ve had to replace them with my old ones and also lost them all. They easily fall off.

    Disappointed

    • Written by Adam B

    I have owned the Powerbeats2 wireless and liked them enough to try the Powerbeats 3. What is with the piece of rubber that is supposed to be a carrying case? It is awkward to use and hard to get the whole accessory in the pocket compared to the previous hard protected zip up case. The charging port no longer has the rubber insert protector. Finally, the set just feels cheaply made compared to the powerbeats2. I think the usage time of 12 hours might be the only upgrade. Maybe I am glad I didn’t spend $350 on the new ANC headphones.

    Broken earpiece

    • Written by Jose Z

    Hi just writing this because over the years I’ve had multiple beats headphone.. but I think that I’ve been patience with your product the last two recent pairs, have been less than durable and they really disappoint.. with thing a span of 6 month both of then have bronken in the ear bad. And one of them even had the wire breaking thru the plastic.. I don’t know when you guys decided to go lower grade material but I’m very disappointed.. The sound is great and I love it because they used to be able to handle the punishement but now I think I’m going to have to rethink if I’m willing to pay the 200 dollar for another pair..

    PowerBeats3

    • Written by Tiara S

    I've been a Beats owner for a long time and I recently bought the PowereBeats3 wireless and I must say, I am disappointed with the sound. The sound in these is very low in caparison to the other models. I've tried using different size earbuds to see if that would work but that didn't do the trick either. I guess if you are someone who primarily uses them for the gym, or in smaller settings, these would be ideal, but for every day traveling, commuting etc. these are a no for me. The noise cancellation in them aren't the best either, ( I can hear everything around me, cars, trains, people, etc.). The earphones that still require a wire input are way better in my opinion.

    Troubleshooting

    • Written by Scander Z

    I want to know why my earphones dont turn on. It's the 2nd time I've had this issue and when I call support they tell me it might be the sweat. It specifically says that it's water resistant. So I've tried every troubleshooting and nothing works. I paid $200.00 for headphones to workout with and it hasn't held up its name. Somebody tell me what I can do

    Great but quality degraded

    • Written by Sammy B

    I got these as a gift for Christmas and LOVED THEM at first, but then I ran into a problem about 1 1/2 - 2 months in. I was upstairs with my phone on the main level and the sound started cutting in an out. No biggie, my phone was downstairs and our walls are heavily insulated. But then the volume started going CRAZY on me. On second it was full volume, the next it was on mute, the it was halfway, then it was loud again, then it went back to my original volume. I was super concerned at this point, as I had had my beats for only about 2 months now. I’ve had them for almost 4 months now and haven’t run into any of the same problems, except that recently the sound quality seems to be degrading (it also may just be me, I listen to music quite often and do a lot of work that requires headphones, so my ears just kind of get used to the volume, lol). Overall would recommend IF you are a person who doesn’t listen to music or use headphones a lot and just uses them for every day use and then when you’re working out or at the gym. Sound quality and durability is great but some minor issues with connection as mentioned above.

    Great but could use outside work

    • Written by Johnneed S

    I love them, but 1. Need to be more compadabe to Android phones (it talks to you and other things if you have an iPhone why not with Android) 2. would love green light installed or battery symbol with light up function to show when battery is full also would prevent over charging. 3. Would love if there was a way to secure it to neck when not in ear. Can easily slip off when not in ears.

    Pretty darn good for the 2018 Winter Sales price @ $99/New

    • Written by Bao M

    I used mine for audio drama's at work, hands free calls while stuck in traffic, and at the gym on the treadmill so very good battery life. My first pair stopped powering on after a year, but Apple replaced them based on manufacturing warranty. Only took 2 weeks for a brand new replacement. I ended up breaking the hooks on my second pair, but they are replaceable through amazon for a low cost. I suggest not stuffing them in your pockets. Best used on ear, or around the neck, otherwise treat with care. They are one of the few wireless earphones that are clear enough to hear without outside noise taking over IE the GYM.

    Poor Voice Call

    • Written by Chainz M

    If you need an earphones for music experience, then this is gonna be a great choice for you. But this device is really poor on phone-call experience. Background sounds louder then our voice, and become too noisy. So, i would not recommend this if you want a handsfree earphone.

    Great sound but NOT for fitness

    • Written by Eric C

    Great sound quality and confort during walking or traveling on train/bus. If you want to use this earphones for fitness and heavy sweat activity do NOT use them. Them are NO SWEAT PROOF so you'll risk a short circuit damage if the sweat will enter in the earphones... This is very unexpected for an Apple supported product and supposed to be used for fitness.

    Would be great value for money, if it lasted

    • Written by Leon D

    I found the sound quality to be really great and the headphones were really convenient to carry around and store. Charging time was simply awesome, and its look was sleek. But, after only 5/6 months of usage, they stopped charging and would only display the red blinking light indicating low battery, and would not turn on. Unfortunately, I bought these headphones while in Australia, not where I actually live, in Europe. I was going to get a replacement by shipping since I have family there that could take care of it, but considering I went through the reviews and saw that this quality issue where they constantly stop working was more than in the majority of cases, I decided not to bother with the shipping and replacement. Quite sad... Amazing piece of tech, yet made obsolete in the majority of cases because of capitalism restraining it from being a quality item that lasts AT LEAST a year in most cases. I think it goes without saying that the price, which is high compared to other competitors, does not match the expectations of quality. You'd think you'd get a solid working product, and if it stops working, that that would be rare... But it's not. Oh well, I guess it's better to simply see if the AirPods 2 have great sound.

    How long will they work?

    • Written by Marie B

    This is my 5th pair of power Beats in less than 3 years (this doesn't account for the refurbished pairs Apple has sent) and you never know when they'll decide to stop working. Apple has been good about replacing my Beats as they went out but it's just a frustrating wondering how long they'll last. Like on today's run they decided to keep skipping songs or replaying songs or activating Siri...previous issues have been they just max out the volume (keep turning it up when I turn it back down); won't charge; won't power on; etc. This set seems close to going so I plugged in to try to get updates. They wouldn't power on the other day so I did the reboot and put them back on the charger and they worked for almost a week (3 runs) but are starting to act up again. Sound quality and comfort are amazing which is why I've kept working with Apple to get the refurbished sets and have even bought 4 sets as the first ones broke...but I'm about done. This set has lasted pretty long but I took time off using them when I quite running the last month of my pregnancy and the two months before I was given the OK to start working out again. So before you buy consider how much effort you want to put in to have working Beats for more than a few months. Also if you buy, register them and keep/scan the receipt so it'll be easier for you to work with Apple support to get a refurbished pair.

    Good quality but minor issues...

    • Written by Renshiro H from Palo Alto

    I had the powerbeats3 for over a year now, and it's good as new. It's very durable and I love the case too. However, there are some issues that I feel are pretty significant. One of them is that the eartip comes off pretty easily. I had several occasions where I had to search for a eartip. Another issue is charging, although the battery life is good, and charging time is blazing fast, I really wanted lighting cable instead of micro-usb. This is my only product from apple with a micro-usb, so for the next generation of powerbeats, I want to see a lighting cable, or usb type-c.

    Overall pretty good, money could buy you better (unless for working out)

    • Written by Brody W from Bend

    I gave this 3 stars because although the earbuds are nice, there is nothing compared to other earbuds you can get out there. I actually read the reviews before I bought them, and I just ignored them. Airpods probably would be better for my personal use, but when using these on runs, during workouts, and when I sail, they do the job. They stay on my ears but the rubber on the part that wraps around my ear is already wearing off, and I've only had them for about five months.

    If you are just looking for something to play nice music in your ears, look at the Marshel products to get the most "bang for your buck."

    Hope you found this helpful,
    Kip

    Great unitl theyre not

    • Written by Rachel H

    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.

    Worked for a month

    • Written by Michael L

    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.

    Great Sound, But Poor Durability

    • Written by Carlos S

    So I had my fair share of using PowerBeats. I've used second generation of these wireless earbuds and the third generation is an improvement in terms in sound and battery life. The one main thing that I had an issue with is its durability of the thing that goes around your ear. I had previously had a pair of these, but they managed to get damaged after 6 months, so I replaced them. That being said, the stiffness of those hoops were already becoming questionable before the incident. It's better left not to be played with and moved around as both hoops on my second pair PowerBeats3 have now fallen off after a year and months. Sad part is, I already used my warranty, so tough luck. "Incoming Glue"

    Sweat Resistant

    • Written by Matt G

    I have the Power Beats 3 and had to send them in for repair. Customer and return services were great, I am just weary about taking these through another sweat intensive workout and they bug out again before my warranty is up. Other than that great headphones eapecially paired up to the Apple TV for late night homework.
