    Great (if it works)

    Great product. However, sometimes hassle with pearing, lost connection, dropped volume and now the remote doesn't work anymore and I'm now gonna send it back.

    Trash Product

    Had the PB3 for less than a month and they now have pairing issues. Flashes red and whote and won't connect. Apple won't supply with new headphones. Do yourself a favor and don't buy these if you're looking for a good wireless workout headphone.

    Worst Apple product I have owned in 20 years.

    I am on my third pair. The previous 2 pair were replaced under warranty. The 1st replacement pair would not even power on.
    The 3rd pair, same as the 1st. It just shuts down after about an hour of use after a full charge. Takes better part of a day charging before it will power up again. I have checked for firmware updates as well as the usual voodoo. When I downloaded the Powerbeats updater, I took the opportunity to name them 'Unreliable'. When they work, the sound is great.

    Excited..... but not..

    These earphones have a truly Awesome sound and are great to wear...

    They worked Awesome here the first half year, but have the last week struggled to live op to the expectations and the battery started ro act complicated, even after dusins of resets and whatever..

    Now the battery drains it self in less than 1 day, EVEN when turned off... = the battery is wasted...

    Not Robust

    Let me start by saying I'm sending back my 3rd set of PowerBeats3 and I went through three PowerBeats2, all replaced under warranty. I want to like them and I do when they work, but reaching for them before each workout is rolling the dice.

    I run every day and I pair with my Apple Watch. They sound great and, the ability to head out on runs without my phone and just these is awesome. They fit well and are comfortable. BUT, inevitably, after 30 to 60 days, they will just glitch out. I have experienced all problems in other reviews: battery not holding charge when powered off, power button stops working, inline control stops working, randomly drops bluetooth connection, etc. I think it has to do with sweat getting into electronics and they're just not robust. O most recent pair, I did an experiment: wrapped them in electrical tape in an effort to waterproof them on my own. This pair finally crapped out after a particularly hot and sweaty late-July run where I could tell I had sweat in my ears. I think the sweat worked its way down into the earpiece and came in contact with the electronics and the next day the were non responsive. They're on their way back to Apple for replacement.

    I struggle to understand how Apple can stand behind these headphones. I thought with Powerbeats 3, there would be an improvement but I think they're worse. Apple should issue a recall or fix the issues; they have to know about them. Just look at the reviews here or on Amazon. The numbers are too large to think it's just a small issue. My hope is that Apple fixes the issues and provides a replacement once and for all.

    Is it trash day yet?

    Do your research. Read all reviews. Do what I did not. Don't waste $200 on these overpriced pieces of junk. It seems like the beats design team tried to cut every single corner they could have in designing these things. Not sweat resistant at all. Owned them for about a week of running and exercising and they are already malfunctioning, dying on a full charge, increasing/decreasing volume on it's own. Quite honestly the worst pair of headphones I have ever bought. Sound is garbage, design is worse, all for a price that is disrespectful to consumers around the world.

    poor product

    Had the beats 2 for almost a year when they died. I have gone through 2 sets of beats 3s in less than 6 months. All the same issues everyone is talking about. Time for a recall.

    Cannot recharge the battery after a month

    I got it from Apple Store last month. The ear plugs does not stay in ears and the battery is no longer works.
    Seems that many people are facing the same issue after a few weeks of using it.
    Apple, you need to RECALL the product!!!

    **NOT RECOMMEND**

    Buttons break easily

    It's been less than a month and the buttons/speaker doesn't want to work... it skips, lowers and higher the volume by itself and it's extremely annoying. Not water resistant

  • 2.0 out of 5 stars

    very annoying

    I have purchased the Powerbeats 3 on March 3rd of this year. They worked fine for few days then in the middle of my work out they would switch off. power still at least at 70 %. Sometimes I was able to switch them on again but after few seconds they would switch off again. They did that for few days .. I thought it was me sweating (although they should be sweat proof). after few days they start working fine again but it didn't last long. So I thought it could be Spotify that could for some reason was creating the problem. I used them just with iTunes and they worked ok for few day but then they start to switch off again!! I even deleted Spotify and reinstall it on my phone.
    its a shame because they fit very well and the sound is good. After paying so much money and now hearing all these people experiencing similar issues I am surprised that apple is not doing something to address the problem.

    Very disappointed. Won't buy Beats again.

    I've head my Powerbeats 3 for 7 months now and the last 3 months I've struggled and finally turned them off. The volume automatically goes from highest to lowest to off and back up again. Songs skip. They shutoff for no reason. I've tried everything from rebooting many times, using the Beats driver to update the firmware. Resetting, re-installing, and cycling power to my Apple Watch. But nothing works.

    I'm an iOS developer that builds Bluetooth apps so I know this is not the way an expensive headset is supposed to work.

    Very disappointed because the first 4 months they were awesome.

    Terrible

    This is my third pair in a month. I keep returning because the volume goes up and down on its own. It pauses and starts, over and over. It's a huge disappointment. Thumbs down. I'd give it less than one star, but it's not available. Zero Stars.

    Look Elsewhere

    For the price and size of these, the sound is horrible. The is no BASS which really surprises me for their size. Apple's wired buds are 10 times better.

    Dead Powerbeats3

    Bought my powerbeats in november 2016. They have not been holding charge fora number of weeks but are now completely dead. Apple are going to send replacement but I wonder how long these will last. Apple need to recall this product !!

    WTF happened?

    Had the beats 2 for a year, trained, sweated, and ran a marathon in. Worked fine till they finally broke. Got the beats 3 and not even a month goes by and they start shorting out. All the issues everyone is having, volume, pausing, not turning off. Huge disappointment. Even the new design seemed questionable as the charging port is open to sweat unlike the beats 2 which was covered.

    Absolute Garbage

    My first set of these lasted 6 weeks before they died. They were replaced under warranty. Three weeks later, they won't even hold a charge for an hour which is completely inadequate for working out. Take a pass on these pieces of junk.
