    Terrible product

    Three pairs in 5 months, absolutely not worth the money. Steve Jobs would have never allowed such a bad product be sold by Apple. The rating on this website is terrible, yet still selling it.

    Not sweat resistant

    I just finished a run on the treadmill. The sweat would cause a short circuit on the volume control causing the headphone to lower volume until mute. Clicking the volume up key on the headphone would not work. Had to bring the volume back up from the phone itself. These happened a handful of times during my run today. Other than that -which is pretty annoying- I love this headphones

    AVOID AVOID AVOID

    I can't speak for anyone who doesn't go to the gym regularly, but I am so upset about these headphones. I am a college student, aka I don't have the means to waste any of my money. Headphones are important to me because I use them to study, walk to school and workout. So, I use them everyday. I believe in spending the money on good quality. This is not the head phones to buy.

    They shut off if you sweat at all. So make sure if you're working out that you have good sweat control.
    If you reset them, it takes forever to get them to connect again.
    The sound quality is not as loud or clear as my $10 headphones that I now have to use because I REFUSE to buy anything from apple ever again.
    The ear buds fall off so easily, makes sense why they give you so many back ups, but WHY?? They're $200 headphones. That should not even be an issue, but yet it is.
    I had the power beats 2 and the volume button broke off after a month. Volume went up and down.

    So Apple, hope you're happy you're scamming everyone out of their hard earned money. You guys really deserve it. Can't wait for that $1,000 IPhone to come out....... Not.

    Worst experience. Not getting charged

    I have been using these earphones for almost 7 months. Sound quality is not that great. And the main problem is I have got a problem three times in seven months. Earphones wont charge and apple service care people wont give a reason for it. They just say we solved the issue. But no. They cant solve it completely. Its a problem with device..

    I wouldn't

    The sound is good, but unless you'll enjoy having to take them off and re-connect them 2 times a minute after charging them don't go anywhere near these. I became so frustrated that I bought another brand of wireless headphones, which are miles better

    No sweat resistant

    I am now on my 5th pair of Powerbeats, started with version 2 and now version 3. Not one pair has lasted longer than 3 months, as soon as sweat goes near them, the remote starts to malfunction. I have had everything from, no volume controls, can't pause or restart music, can't switch on or off.
    Why make a sports specific product and not make them sweat proof!!

    Stay Away

    I purchased these less than a month ago (19 days exactly), and they have already stopped working completely. I was listening to music and they shut off, even though they had a 70% charge. Then I charged them overnight, and they wouldn't power on. Now they just blink red and will not reset. I have contacted Apple and am currently waiting for a box to ship them back and receive a replacement pair. I have had these no where near water, or sweat since I use them mostly when I'm at work or around the house. I have completely washed a pair of $40 SkullCandy's and they were perfectly fine. It's a shame that a $40 pair holds up better than a $200 pair.

    Junk!

    Don't waste your money! My 9.99 wired headphones have lasted longer than these high dollar pieces of Bulldog waste! Apparently, I can get them repaired for 99.00 + shipping! What a joke!

    These reviews are accurate

    Every negative thing these fine people are saying is 100% accurate.
    I'm on my third pair, and I think the longest use I've gotten out of any was one month.
    It seems the claims that they are not sweat resistant is spot on. Mine chronically cut out
    midway through a run, and never charge again. Pure junk. Pure time waste. Done

    Garbage Buds

    Stay away from this model....... !!!!!!
    I have had problems and issues with mine since day one.
    First, it was not charging. got it successfully repaired.
    Now, it shuts down as and when it pleases. It is bloody annoying when you are running and suddenly the music stops.... such a turn off..... !!!!
    Don't know whether to go and get it looked at and repaired or just taking the hammer and smashing it to smithereens..
    It was not designed to be used during work outs, the circuits and connections can't take the sweat.
    Whoever is thinking about getting these, please save your money.

    Save Your Money

    I am currently sending back my second pair of beats3 in the last 5 months. The first pair last approximately 3 months and the volume control stopped working. I took them back to Best Buy and since I had them only 3 months they exchanged them for me. The second pair lasted less then two months and I now have the same problem. The volume control stopped working and the volume would lower itself until it was muted. Best Buy refused to exchange them again and now I have to send them to Apple. When speaking with two different techs they both stated that this was an odd problem and uncommon. In reading the reviews it sounds like a very common problem. My feeling is that the volume control button is not sweat proof like they advertise. I am anticipating the same problem with the third pair. In short, if you are going to use this product when working out SAVE YOUR MONEY.

    POOR PRODUCT

    I saved up for some time to purchase the pwerbeats 3 , and being in South Africa makes it even more expensive. Since the beginning of the year it started to give me issues, however when i checked i was outside the warranty period. The problem is getter worse and worse by the day, and it is actually so bad that i am at the point of using a hammer to destroy it which i will post online as n actual solution to solving a very expensive products problem. I have had almost every single iphone, ipad, macbook etc and never had any issues. However the Powerbeats 3 is an utter dissapointment to what Apple stands for. And the question might pop up why did i not send it in for repairs???? well just the shipping and standard repair costs almost the same as the earphones. And obviosuly when questioinig an apple store i am being asked have you submitted a support log????? I would be really amazed if Apple even comments or responds to this issue as it seems to me that I am def not the only person have issues like , track skipping, uncontrolable volume change...........
    Its is such a shame that my hard work that went into saving for such an device is to waste!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Very unhappy client!!!

    Don't purchase beats 3

    I never write reviews, but a heads up to anyone who reads these. Do not bye these headphones. Had mine for a week when they started shutting off. Funny thing is Apple knows this so yes they are all about fixing and repairing this defective product. So if you enjoy dealing with awesome customer service who is willing to go above and beyond to fix your garbage headphones than go ahead and drop the 200 bucks. You have been warned.

    Second set just died

    I can only agree with all the other reviews criticising these headphones. By far the worst Apple product I've ever bought — and I've bought a lot. I've now had two pairs of the PowerBeats3 fail within 10 months — the first set randomly took control of the volume, woke up Siri, etc; while the second set started draining a full battery in five or 10 minutes and eventually just died.

    Terrible Sound Quality

    I’m just shocked at how poor the sound quality of these are - even compared to my regular Apple earbuds.
    Frankly, the normal earbuds blow these out of the water.

    I bought the Powerbeats3 & the Solo 3 a few days ago, and even the difference between the two ade night and day (Apple earbuds aside).
    The Powerbeats have a tin/tingy sound quality to them.
    Still with the Apple earbuds.

    These are going back tomorrow.

    Power Broke 3

    Well, I am on my 6th Powerbeats headphones. The earphones are NOT designed to be used while sweating during a workout. The sweat short circuits the earphones. I have tried numerous times to get Apple to just give me a store credit, but they refuse. Instead, I receive a new pair. After a month of working out with them, they short circuit again. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE

    Powerbeats 3 wireless πŸ‘πŸ»

    Best earphones from beats very comfortable and good quality sound with base . I suggest to buy this powerbeats 3 wireless earphones .

    Headset gets disconnected from the device every few minutes.

    The headtset gets disconnected every few minutes into the session. I am also advised it will take 2 to 4 weeks for the repair. For such an expensive headset, its a very poor repair policy. It seems the product is not mature enough in terms of being water proof. I would recommend waiting for the next edition before investing in this one.

    4th replacement

    I have had to send mine in and were replaced all for exactly the same issue. They just don't charge anymore. Each time it gets replaced with a new one and lasts about 1 or 2 months, then it happens gain. Bad quality product this is..
