    Worst ever

    I have had to return the powerbeats 3 three times already in 4 months. These say they are sweat proof but I do not believe that if you use these for working out get ready to have to return them.

    Survived the washing machine!!

    Title speaks for itself. I put it in the washing machine by accident, and it still works! I don't get how the product cant seem to even stand sweat for some people. I would have given it a 5, if the sound quality was better. Battery life is certainly above the industry average though.

    Poor product and waste money!

    I bought a pair of them and they worked well just for 1 week then suddenly they didn't play anymore and Now I can't turn it on! I really hate this headphone! I have a collection of beats and the material they made of is really bad !! My Powerbeats 1 were failed to play in left ear too and there were not any useful warranties at all ! I'm feeling sorry for Apple :(

    Worst product ever!!!

    I bought Powerbeats3 last December. In 10 months the headsets broke 4 times and they were replaced by defective units. Each unit would only last over a month. Extremely disappointing experience. Do not buy this product!!!

    Not worth it

    For the money you can get way better elsewhere. The audio is mediocre at best, volume doesn't go high enough, and mine have broken twice. The first time they replaced and the second time they tried to charge me $99 only 8 months after replacement because the warranty only lasts 12 mo from original purchase date. This is an overall terrible product. Would give 0 stars if i could.

    Garbage

    I was skeptical of beats as I don’t think some rapper is an expert in terms of earbuds, seems I was correct. The volume control and track skip have stopped working, I bet it’s because they’re not sweat resistant... these feel like $30 earbuds, not $200. Do not buy.

    Poor Quality Given the Price

    The sound quality of the beats and the visual appeal are the only two good things about these headphones. The battery life is terrible and they die on me mid-workout all the time, even after a full night of charging. The ear holders slip back frequently and I am constantly having to readjust them. I expected a lot more for what I payed.

    Don't waste your money

    I have now been through two pairs of these in less than 2 years. Both pairs broke less than a year after using. Apple charges more money to fix them out of warranty than it is to buy a new pair. They are cheaply made and will not last. Definitely not worth it... I will be looking into a new brand for my next pair.

    Very convenient for Apple products

    I own many Apple products, iMac, Macbook Pro, iPad, and iPhone. Once connected to one Apple device, everything else is all connected - really convenient! Sound is not as good as Shure earphone. Bass is good, but treble is not sufficient. Good for voice, music, but lack high fidelity audio.

    Third Bad Pair

    I like the ear clip but after three pair that won't stay connected to my iphone, I must switch brands. The start out working great for the first month or so then they start disconnecting during mid song. I can't complete a thirty minute workout with out them disconnecting from my phone. Then the light flashes white three time and goes out. I reset the unit but it does not help. Very frustrated and disappointed.

    Powerbeats3 needs to be discontinued and buyers refunded

    I've now had to replace these 2 or 3 times through apple, and I was surprised to see that hundreds of other users have written in here to report similar experience and yet Apple/Beats has done nothing to fix this product. As other users have complained, my pair breaks down after normal use very quickly and easily. Charging issues, the on-unit control and speaker stops working, then ultimately they just die. Although it's nice that I'm getting them replaced, it is super inconvenient to have constant poor usage and then down time where i need to go back to the store and wait for a repalcement for a PRODUCT THAT COSTS $200. I'm about to go pick my replacements up and I'm going to see if they will just refund me. Do yourself a favor and run away from these. I'll admit they are great when working, but are super low quality and unreliable.

    Sound Quality lacks Intensity; Volume still low at Max Level.

    The actual selling point of the Powerbeats3 is the robust and rigid design, 12-hrs battery life and sweat/water resistance. However, Sound Quality still falls below par for audiophiles like myself. I'll rate the Intensity at 80%, having used other audiophile in-ears like Skull Candy Smokin' buds 2 and JVC Xtreme-Xplosivs HAFX1X. I think the Powerbeats3 lacks as much intensity as required to stimulate the release of endorphins. I enjoy my music loud and bass-heavy, that's why I'm writing this sincere review. I believe Beats and Apple can do better. Whenever I listen to my playlist from the Boom App on iOS, the Powerbeats3 sounds better (because of the Effects). In other words, I'll be the happiest customer if Beats/Apple integrates more effects, especially intensity & loudness in the next update of the firmware. With Love, from Nigeria.

    Broke after 4 months

    Same issue as many others. Battery stopped working and wouldn't charge. Apple should admit there's a problem and offer free return and money back but , as usual, they won't admit to a faulty product. Feel ripped off

    Broke after only 6 months

    These things don't sound that great, are not very comfortable, and don't last long. I don't treat my electronics harshly. The cover on the controller popped off after only 6 months and Apple refused to repair them under warranty. Don't waste your money.

    Do not buy this

    1 star is too much to rate this horrible in ear phone. If i could turn back time i will never buy this. Mine broke after 2 months and i sent it back to claim for new one. The one i have is the 4th one yet i still don’t know if it will function properly.
    Each time i have to wait for 2-3 week for the new one to arrive.
    So i’ll do you all a favor just don’t buy it. This actually makes me loose all faith in Apple products.

    Trash

    If you're anything like my self and are looking for a set of wireless headphones for working out, these are not for you. They shut off during my workout due to an automatic shut off feature when they get wet. They say sweat resistant but are not sweat proof. This is the most frustrating thing that can possibly happen when working out and I'd rather light $200 on fire then have my headphones cut out on me during a set. Save your money and stick with wired headphones or buy anything but these beats.

    would give it 0 stars

    Purchased these end of January 2017. First set stopped working 2 months later, got a second set which stopped working 2 weeks after receiving them. So now I am on the third set which have stopped working after a few months. GARBAGE!! Customer service claims they send new not refurbished headphones... Don't by these overpriced unreliable headphones!!

    Worthless

    I bought a new pair of the Powerbeats3 and within a week of owning them, they stoppped working. After several days of hassle between the sprint store and Apple store, I was finally told to mail them in. So I did, they then mailed me back a new/refurbished pair, which worked great for about a month. Till they stopped working just like the last pair... DONT BUY THEM! THEY'RE WORTHLESS!!

    Best Earphones for a Month

    I love these earbuds but they only lastt a month tops. Apple has replaced them 4-5 times already. It takes longer to get the replacements than they actually work. Comfort is great, sound is great, but they just stop working/charging. Apple really needs to revisit this because I’m not satisfied.
