    HUGE disappointment and recommend not buying if you sweat

    I bought these for use while doing activity like cycling and just anything outdoors. Lately I have had an issue where they were turning off while cycling. It would turn off and when attempting to turn it back on it would flash 3 white lights. Leaving it alone over night proved it was not a battery loss issue as it would show up as still having 70%. I later found out that if you sweat heavy it will cause the headset to turn off abruptly.

    This is so disappointing and truly is misleading when its advertised as sweat and water resistance. Its not like I am swimming with them on and expecting them to work. But come on, these things are useless if it wont last a workout session.

    For this reason.. I would not suggest or recommend them for gym or training...

    NOT good for workouts

    It's hard to take my "workout to the next level" when these headphones constantly stop playing music. What's even worse is when they decide to stop charging and turn off in the middle of my workout. I've gotten them replaced twice now in under 6 months of owning them. Extremely disappointed with the quality of these headphones. I would expect a lot more from headphones that cost over $200.

    Don’t Risk it

    Got a pair as a gift in August 2017 and used them for the gym (probably 3-4 hours total per week). In mid-September I went to turn them on and they wouldn’t power up. I thought maybe the battery had died, but they wouldn’t charge. Ended up returning them to Walmart where they were bought. Walmart was nice enough to let me return them without a receipt, and exchange them for a new pair. Fast forward to mid-February 2018 and I have the same problem AGAIN.

    I originally thought my first pair was just a dud, but now the same thing has happened to the 2nd pair. I’m staying away from power beats going forward.

    Powerbeats 3 Wireless

    This is the worse product I have ever purchased. I bought these as a Valentines Gift from Target.
    Target needs to pull this product from its shelves.

    Bottom Line, they sound like an AM radio form the 50"s I gave this product 1 Star, if I could have given it a -10, I would have.

    Problems Already

    Purchased Powerbeats3 from Apple Store on 12/15/17. Use has been light, mostly calls, music, podcasts, all in a dry, temperate, static environment. Pairs easily w iPhone & iPad. Very pleased with sound & design. Disconnection during home based cell calls started approx 2/1/18 & is completely random. I no longer trust them to perform.

    I will seek exchange to another product after reading about all these hassles. Wish I had read reviews first.

    Sweat not an issue in this case.

    --+++PLEASE+++-- DO NOT BUY THESE. Go with something else.

    My girlfriend got me a pair of these for Christmas (2017). I wish I could say I love these, because they are extremely comfortable and look great! However, they didn't even last two months. I didn't even get ten uses out of them. The update software for them will recognize them when they're plugged into my computer and tells me the battery is at 63%, but they refuse to turn on. Instead, they blink a white light three times. I tried doing the reset by holding the power button and volume down button together, after which they are supposed to reset and then turn on, but it still just blinks white three times. Apple support agreed my pair is faulty and I'm sending it in for a repair/replacement. NOT EVEN TEN USES. DIDN'T EVEN GET TO ENJOY THEM FOR TWO MONTHS. Do yourself a favor and get a cheap Chinese pair of bluetooth headphones from Amazon that look comfortable. You can at least count on those not to die on you for 6-10 months.

    Beats Wireless Headphones

    After purchasing my Powerbeats3 Wireless headphones a couple months ago, I am pleased to say that I am very happy with my purchase of these headphones. I was specifically looking for something that was going to cut out the noise in the gym, the sound of cars when I ran outside, and for other uses throughout the day. Because I am an everyday user of this product when working out, doing homework, or even walking around campus, the battery life of twelve hours on one charge is nice because you do not have to worry about them running out of battery throughout the day. Because they are wireless and Bluetooth capable with even the newest phones and do not need a headphone jack to have them work. It's nice not having a cord flopping around while doing activities. Even though they still make headphones that use cords that are still good to use and still have great sound, I like having the wireless felt better personally because they connect so fast to my phone when I turn them on. I believe this product can be used by anyone simply looking for that wireless headphone with good sound quality and battery life. I have recommended these headphones to my friends who are especially looking for something different in the gym that is going to have better quality over other headphones. With the purchase of these Beats Wireless headphones, it comes with a package of new ear buds that are easy and quick to put on and replace the old ones after lots of use. It also comes with a charger and case for them, which I thought was nice to include. Some other features that come with these headphones are the different colors they have to offer such as black, white, siren red, shock yellow and flash blue. This product stands out at the gym! I believe the best feature these headphones have to offer, is that they are sweat and water resistant which helps me out because I tend to leave my headphones in my pockets a lot which then go through the washing machine. Being able to answer a phone call with your headphones and be able to have a clear conversation and not having to pause your workout is also handy in my opinion. I rated these headphones a 4/5 and have been extremely happy with them and the price on these are not too bad!

    Really not ok

    I have retured 4 pair of Powerbeats. The sound control has stopped working or increased/lowered the volume on its own. They simply do not work for sport activities as they don’t stand any sweat at all. Apple, please replace with something that works!

    BROKEN... RIP

    I've had my Powerbeats3 Wireless for less than 3 days and part of the ear piece broke off. Other than that I love them.

    Not good

    This is my third pair in less than 12 months. But my 8th pair since 2015. I wear these everyday to the gym and that is it. The first pair the volume button stopped working and then would turn down until I couldn't hear a thing, and that happened automatically! And the other two pairs stopped charging. They have a 12 month warranty so I get them replaced but it's not the point it's a hassle as I live a long distance from the shop. Pick your game up Beats/Apple also I won't be getting another pair but instead get a refund. Don't buy these and by these I mean the ones that hook behind the ear.

    Wish i could give zero stars-Hasn't even been 30 days.

    I litarally just bought these. They were okay sound wise but no where near wireless headphones ive bought and paid half for. The worst part is after about 25 days of ownership i got through a song and a half and they just stopped working. They're not dead trust me i checked. I've tried to charge them and got no response ive also tried to reset them with no luck either. Apple need to address this situation if this problem is as prevalent as these reviews suggest. I am beyond angry.

    First Beats purchase and I'm sold!

    I bought these to pair with my Fitbit and use at the gym and they did not disappoint. I'm not sure if they're noise cancelling or not but when I'm working out I can't hear any sounds around me which is awesome. They charge really fast and sounds is amazing, especially the base. They are great for running as they don't move around at all. I was worried the clip was going to hurt my ear after a while but you can twist it so it's not constantly in the same position if it does (it hasn't yet). Can't fault these at all!!

    Honestly don’t buy these if you sweat

    I am on my second pair of Powerbeats and each pair has lasted about a month before failing to work from sweat exposure. The first sign is that it will randomly turn off during a workout. Do not buy these if you sweat. They are not meant for exposure to sweat. It is such a disappointment and waste of money.

    Sweat Resistent Headphones not Sweat Resistent

    As much as it pains me to say this, Apple has clearly created workout headphones that you cannot work out in. I love the headphones when they work, but they are continuously powering down in the middle of runs, which is extremely inconvenient. They are sending me a new pair, but it sounds like their issues are not going to be solved by a new pair. I will delete this review if the next pair last longer than a month.

    Everything sounds terrible

    Powerbeats 2 were great. That pair broke after 1.5-2yrs. I figured Powerbeats 3 had to be better. I was wrong. Everything sounds like your listening to something out of a tin can.

    Good but....

    Sound quality is very good, but After a couple month use, the sound can increase suddenly and then the volume control suddenly not working at all. This very bad

    Garbage

    I never write reviews for anything, but thought I had to about Powerbeats. These headphones are junk. They are expensive and they fell apart. I do not want to buy any of Apple's products now and I will definitely not buy another pair of Beats! Apple should not have acquired this company and the qulity of these products is poor.

    The Best

    Beats By Dre is a world-known brand for producing premium headphones, earphones, and speakers. With that being said, I decided to give them a try. Out of all of their products I decided to buy the wireless Powerbeats. After getting plenty of use out of them I became infatuated with them. I believe these earphones are one of the best, if not the best product, I have bought in a while.
    The Powerbeats are a sleek, portable, and convenient pair of earphones. The main capability of these earphones possess is that it eliminates the hassle of a wire between your head and your phone. You are able to move around freely without worrying about a wire being in the way. This also gives you the option to carry your device on you or to leave it somewhere else near you while you enjoy your music. For instance, you could be charging your phone in one room and listening to music in the other.
    Many complain about the audio quality these earphones have. In my opinion they sound great. This is from the average consumer, not some audio guru. They sound better than any other earphones I have bought in the past. So far I have had the Powebeats2 for six months and they are holding up pretty well. I use these earphones every day. I mainly use them to work out, watch movies, and watch YouTube videos at the house. I have personally only used this product with my iPhone and its quality is quite impressive.
    Pairing devices has never been easier. The Bluetooth connection is amazing and connects to my device right away. When the two are connected, there are no problems with disconnection unless I walk pretty far away from my phone. Another great thing about these earphones is the 5 minute charge. You plug these babies in for 5 minutes, and you will get an hour of juice in return. This comes in handy for the days you forget to plug them in for a full charge. When you do have a full charge, you get 12 hours of battery life. That is more than enough to last you an entire day. What more could you ask for?
    Oh Yea! The earphones are also sweat resistant. I find this very suitable for when I do physical activities such as running and lifting at the gym.
    Aside from all the great capabilities these earphones have to offer, the sleek design of the earphones is quite an eye catcher. They appear to have come from the future! There are many colors to choose from but my favorite color is the red ones because they are vibrant and stand out the most. The shape of the earphone is designed for a secure fit. They hook around the back of your ear for a snug lockdown. Since they are lightweight, when hooked to the ear you barely feel like you are wearing earphones. To the touch these earphones are very smooth and do not feel cheap. This is a good sign because you usually want your stuff to last. The earphone’s control buttons feel firm, and they have a grip to them. As to the response of the buttons to the phone, it is immaculate. For example, I could pause a song from the buttons on the earphones and it will automatically pause it on the device.
    In conclusion, these earphones provide you with everything you need. They are a great product that I think is essential in everyone’s life. They are dependable and easy to take anywhere you go, whether you are going to the gym or just chilling at the house. If you are on the fence of purchasing these, just do it. You will not regret it. Once you go cordless, you will never go back.
