    Horrible Buy

    On my 5th set of Powerbeats3. Same as all the other reviews. Keep shutting down during workouts, disconnecting from blue tooth, won't restart or reconnect. Apple keeps sending more so I'll keep sending them back.

    Terrible Powerbeats3. Don't buy it

    I bought the second pair in may 2017. The first pair was quite good until it worked.
    It was affected by sudden death. Blinking red light is still on.
    I thought it was for the sweat, but I was so shocked and I realized that the new one would have been fixed.
    It's not so. I lost my money.

    Product not resistant to moisture

    According to Apple: "Resistance to water and perspiration for your most intensive workouts" - IPX4

    Well there is a problem because it is not true at all!

    First of all there is no protection of the USB connector in contrast to what is done to the competition. This one is therefore open to perspiration and rain if you run outside.
    Same for the control that takes moisture and which depending on the frequency of your activity will quickly no longer work due to the corrosion of the internal electronics.

    In short, good headphones for normal use (urban) but especially not for the sport.

    Worst headphones ever

    These headphones are by far the worst headphones I've ever spent money on. They are not sweat resistant what's so ever. Can't even go on a run or a decent workout without these things cutting off due to contact with sweat. Its happened over a hundred times. To the point where it won't even cut back on until the next day. I don't even have excessive sweat problems. Probably don't even sweat as much as normal people But always have a problem with these. They angered me so bad because this kept happening. I ripped them in half and they then away. I will never again spend money an beats. You're better off buying a 20 dollar pair of wireless ones from Amazon.

    3 pairs, not even close

    I got my first pair in Jan, in 6 months I already replaced it 3 times and I still have problems with the unit.

    Main issues:
    - Battery doesn't hold up
    - Randomly turning off

    Is getting worse recently, I'm probably going to try my 4th replacement.

    Unfortunately all the bad reviews are not fake....

    On my third set now. Just off the phone with Apple care. Also had the Powerbeats 2 with the same issues. Why would I buy the 3s? Great question. Wouldn't the new ones fix all of the old issues? Nope. So here I am again. No headphones for the gym or runs until the magic return fixes the problem for a few months. Then we will start the same process again, until one workout or run they will die, and we will play the Apple return game again. Give me a product that works apple.

    Not for gym or working out but great sound when they work

    The powerbeats3 is unreliable for regular use in the gym. Moisture or humidity given off from your neck will rise into the charge port and cause it to stop working and not re-pair with my mobile device. The problems started happening after exactly 30 days and using them approximately 4 days per week in the gym. It might be coincidental that humidity levels in Arizona have risen significantly, possibly contributing to the problem. My Powerbeats3 only worked for about 30 minutes while using the treadmill two days in a row.

    A full overnight charge will dry out the electronics which has enabled me to re-pair the device.

    I am extremely disappointed with Apple marketing alleging how great these are for working out. Just not true. Now I have to deal with Apple to try and get a manufacturer warranty refund or exchange for something else that might work better. I would not reccomend these for active users in the gym. Sorry LaBron, you endorsed a bad product! There are many reviews on the web that collaborate with my experience.

    So unreliable

    Originally had a pair of Powerbeats 2, which stopped working within 12 months (On/off button often not working, not holding charge, turning off randomly). Sound quality was good, so decided to upgrade to PB3 hoping for some build improvements. Have had the exact same issues, within a matter of months. Now on my second pair (following replacement), and have just had the same issue arise. Will send them back again, but very frustrating.

    I agree with the review of they turn off with a little swear eyc

    My wife and son bought me these for Father's Day. I'm on my second pair and they do the same thing. after using them and sweating about 20 minutes sometimes ten minutes they turn off. This is so frustrating!! I like sound but can't work out like this with a pricey name brand item. If and when they fix maybe I'll by a pair. I wish my wide would have read these reviews before she bought them!!):

    Functional but awkward

    I like the remote wireless feature but the sound quality and ambient sound cancellation (useless on airplanes) are substandard by comparison with wire connectors such as Bose. The battery runs down fast, which is a major limitation while traveling. There's no way to fly across the pond on a single charge. They are also uncomfortable compared with the high end ear buds I've used for exercise. It's a trade off for the convenience of not having a wire. If I had to do it again I'd buy one of the Apple micro clip ons.

    I NEED MONEY BACK!!!

    bought 1st pair which lasted 7 days before it completely stop working. Thank god i had 14 days to get brand new exchange pair which only lasted me 1 month. I spent over 200$ on bull for apple to tell me we have to send them yo get tested. They think people have all the time in the world to come into the store every once a month for a replacement pair. This is ridiculous and we should get our money back.

    These are not sweat resistant

    I've had two pairs of these and the third one is on the way. This last one took less than two weeks and it stopped working. I can only think its sweat, but I bought these because they mention their sweat resistance 4 times on the product information page.

    The problem is basically the same as the first pair: the battery will no hold a charge, the controller stops working, the volume will randomly change and they will turn off on their own.

    I'm intend to keep returning them until I get a pair that works or my warranty runs out.

    I will get my $200 from Apple one way or another

    ON MY 8TH BAD POWERBEATS!

    Customer service was great in helping me getting them replaced originally I had Powerbeats 2 after five replacements they finally gave me Powerbeats3 but I'm now on my second pair of threes and again battery Died in less than you months.

    Decent but unreliable.

    First things first, an insight into their reliability; I'm on my 4th pair since December 2016.

    When they do work they are great; they sync effortlessly with my iPhone; are comfortable and never fall out of my ears, even when doing HIIT; sound quality is decent.

    However that is all moot; for a £170 pair of earphones it is ridiculous to only get a month of light usage out of them before they fail.

    They should be withdrawn and redesigned asap.

    Battery is HUGE problem

    These work fine for about a month then the battery life slowly disintegrates until they only last (generously) 20 minutes. Sometimes they will turn back on and play one song. Regardless, do not spend the ridiculous asking price for these headphones. They are not even worth a quarter of the price.

    Note: This happened to my Powerbeats 2, as well. I advise Apple to focus on the battery life and figuring out how to get them to have a longer life.

    Terrible, just terrible

    I'm now on my 4th pair. I continue to have the same issues, the controls stop working and the volume has a mind of its own. I used to think it was my phone but I have two iPhones and I have the same issue on both of them. I found out today that sweat can damage the headphones. WTF? I bought these to run in and now I'm finding out that I shouldn't sweat on them. it was actually recommended that I use a hairdryer on them after I use them, really??. I used to have a pair of Jaybirds that I did 3 Marathons in and never had an issue. I lost them and figured I'd try Beats. When they work they are amazing, too bad sweat is it's kryptonite. Definitely not worth $200, not even worth $50. Blown away that these headphones have not been recalled.

    The Worst Product Apple Has

    I just returned from the Apple Store to turn in my 3rd pair. All three have failed within 6 months due to losing a charge and not taking a charge. I keep getting replacement pairs that fail like the previous ones. Never ever buy this product unless you enjoy going through the replacement process and being without them for a week while they get replaced. One would think that by now Apple is losing so much money on shipping and replacement costs that they would offer a free replacement option other than Powerbeats3! I will just keep sending them back for replacements until they finally get the idea!

    Good. When they work......

    I had the powebeats 2 and never experienced a problem until i broke them from one too many snowboarding falls. So i decided the powerbeats 3 would be a great replacement. I have had them for 2 weeks and only wear them at the gym. Everytime about halfway through my workout they just turn off. Sometimes they will turn right back on and sometimes i have to wait a few minutes. would not recommend this product for workout/physical activities because of the annoyance of having to turn them on after every two minutes

    the worst bluetooth connection

    these headphones cut off every other second !! You cant put your phone in your pocket because the connection to the phone cuts off! total waste of money false advertisement extremely dissatisfied with this product and the only reason I gave it 1 star was bc it didn't let me give it a fat ZERO!!!!!! and the warranty is the worst I had to return this product 3 times and each time the same thing waste of my time and money .
