    Don’t waste your money

    I wouldn’t recommend these headphones because they’ll randomly turn off on you at some point. You won’t get a charge or power from the headphones. Unfortunately, I’ve been suckered into the popularity of this brand, and all 3 of my previous headphones have had this issue. 10/10 not worth it.

    Frequent Bluetooth disconnections

    The Powerbeats will be working for about 30 mins into a workout and then I get the disconnection tones and cannot re-connect. I get 3 blinking white lights and the product is unresponsive to reconnecting to laptop/charging. I have been back to Apple to repair/replace these probably five times over the past year. The first times 4 times they seemed to be taking them back for a repair and would return them to me in a couple of days (I don't know if it was the original Beats or a refurbished set). The most recent time, I told them of my frustration and they gave me a new pair off the shelf, right out of the box. We seemed confident this would resolve the issue but this new set started exhibiting the same disconnection behavior. About 20-30 mins into a run, out of the blue, sound cuts out and the disconnection tones comes on. They won't work for the rest of the workout. Then, if I leave them off overnight, in the morning they will reconnect. It's been just a terrible experience.

    Shocking! Shocking! Shocking!

    I have already had my first pair of Powerbeats 3 replaced because they wouldn’t turn on and connect. I now have a second pair and they too have the same problem! This is in 8 months! How can a product I paid 160 euros for only last 4 months on average? This is unacceptable and I will never buy any pair of Beats again. I have to go back to the store and get a third pair and I’m pretty sure they won’t last very long either.

    Rubbish Powerbeats 3

    Broken 3 times. Each times last 4 months at most. It is total waste of money. Too bad that I can't rate minus for this product.

    Great Sound, Battery Dies After 18 Months!

    My second set just died due to battery failure. At $260 each, I'm now down $520 and both sets are useless. The battery cannot be replaced, and the manufacturer acknowledges lithium batteries only have a limited life. It's a pity, because the sound is second to none. It's just symptomatic of a throw-away society and luxury products marketed to a wealthy few. The ethics of selling such products do nothing to enhance a company's reputation and social standing. Next time I see their promotional stand at my local shopping mall I get a loud-hailer and warn the public. Come to think of it, I might even wear a sandwich board to protest.

    DONT BUY IT IF YOU SWEAT!!!!!!!

    It was introduced as a sweat proof product yet it’s really not. I have already used two pairs and both get messed up after two month of workout use.

    Broken 3 Times

    I have had 3 pairs of the wireless powerbeats and each pair has broken, despite there being no physical damage. After roughly 1 year of use per pair, all three pairs failed to turn on or charge at all. Took them all to the apple store and they were not sure what was wrong with them, and then wanted to charge me $100 to maybe be able to repair them??? The headphones were only $190, which is absurd because I have now bough THREE pairs of them and my last pair stopped working yesterday. So roughly $600 down the drain, and nothing to show for it. Seriously unsatisfied.

    Powerbeats3 as bad or worse than Powerbeats2

    After going through at least 4 sets of Powerbeats2, Apple was gracious enough to "upgrade" me to the Powerbeats3. I thought this was awesome and I was super excited because I had read that the Powerbeats3 were supposed to be more sweat resistant and made for athletes/training. Since the upgrade at the end of August (2017) I had to replace them on Nov 7. I live outside the U.S. and some my replacement Powerbeats3 weren't even used until Jan 4 2018. Yesterday Jan 25, after a few disconnects over the last couple of weeks, they completely died and will not charge or power on.

    Long story short: Powerbeats 2 are garbage. Powerbeats 3 are garbage. Apple customer support is awesome. 0 stars for the product 5 stars for the service support.

    Did Not Last

    I received these headphones as a gift last year. I love their great design and function- so great for the gym and running. However, after only using them 5 times, they lost the ability to retain a charge and ultimately died. The only advice Apple gave me was to try to reset them, which did not work. Their conclusion was that there was nothing they could do besides charging me around $100 in fees to have them fixed. After already paying a wasteful $200 for the headphones, they were not worth fixing or replacing. Very disappointed in the quality, return policy and pricing. What a scam.

    powerbeats 2 and 3

    ive never read the reviews on the wireless powerbeats and i wish i did before purchasing my very first pair. all what i say is within 18months of having my powerbeats 2. i only ever use these for the gym for roughly an hour everyday. in total i have gone through 5 sets of powerbeats 2 and apple eventually gave me a set of powerbeats 3 because of the problems, but within 2 months of receiving these ive gone through 3 sets and will be getting a 4th replacement set from apple within the next few days. common faults which have happened to all one are that when using them eventually the volume decreases on its own then suddenly stop working and can't switch back on. the latest problem is not holding charge on a daily basis and i honestly think now its because of sweat even though they claim to be sweat proof and designed for working out. Don't get me wrong when they work they sound and feel great but its doesn't last long in my case and it seems like that with others after reading reviews. As anyone ever gone down the road of seeking advice because ive kept every case number and email from apple since the problems as started and am considering this if my 4th set of powerbeats 3 stop working.

    Poor sound!

    I've tried a few bluetooth headphones and the sound quality on these is by far the worst - basically no base at all (and I'm not a base heavy fan). I'd go as far to say I'd rather run with no music than use these which is a big statement. Do yourself a favour and buy the plantronics backbeat fit which is superior in fit and music quality. Sort it out beats...

    Powerbeats 2

    DO NOT PURCHASE! I have never babied any item I have purchased as I have these and I have had no end of problems! I have had to use the warranty twice and I would a third time but I believe I am out of the warranty. The first time the play/pause volume control button fell off during a run, the second time it stopped working and I had to use my phone to control the headphones and most recently the ear piece broke, while going to put them on. These remain in the case it came with and only ever charged with the charger it came with. I was extremely excited when I received these as a gift but now I am so disappointed in this product and will not be purchasing again nor recommending to anyone.

    Powerbeats 3 is not sweat proof!

    This hefphone is not sweat proof, I'm using that with my iPhone X, after about twenty minutes of workout, the volume would go from max to mute and vice verse on its own. It pauses the music and run Siri by itself. It seams your phone is operating by a ghost! Today was the third times in week that these issues happned

    Being an Alaskan...

    I’ve had these wireless earbuds for my iphone for nearly a year now. I think they’re really user friendly, and provide excellent sound. They have outstanding bass, and a prolonged battery life. The terrible thing about these though, is that even though they cost $200 and are stated as “weather-proof”, they turn off automatically at low temperatures. I can only listen to music for 5 minutes at the most while I’m walking home, and then I have to walk in silence while I’m freezing my toes off. They also prove to be pretty weak, as mine broke at the ear lobe loop. I was able to fix them with apoxy, though. They’re good earbuds if you don’t live up North...

    Terrible quality

    I used them for running or working out, and they occasionally got slightly wet from sweat or rain. I took very good care of them and when working, these are great headphones. However, they never lasted more than 3 months at a time. Over the year I had them under warranty I went to the genius bar to have them fixed or replaced 5 times, each time being for a different issue. This last time I went and they were no longer under warranty, so I would have to pay $99 to have them fixed. There is no way I would pay that much to try again, knowing that they would only work for 3-4 months. When you want to spend $200 on a product like these you shouldn't expect to have them for a year, going to an apple store 5 times, waiting a week each time (5 weeks in total) to have the replacement sent out.. I would highly recommend not taking a chance on these.

    Power beat 3 earbuds

    This is my third 3rd pair sent to me from apple and each pair sounded the same like horrible I dont know what Apple did after taking over from dr dre but they went downhill and destroyed the overall sound quality the deep bass is gone they're not loud at all and all I got from a senior advisor at apple was well to bad we sent you two pair already and that's how they sound which I thought was pretty arrogant and rude, he told me on the second pair if I didn't like them he'd give me an upgrade which turned out to be a straight up lie. Its ashame apple destroyed them, the 2's were incredible. I highly suggest if your must a moderate listener and dont care about bass and volume then they're for you but anybody who wants deep bass and loud volume DO NOT BUY the 3's their horrible and apple destroyed a good set of ear buds compared to the 2's. I have a cheap pair of 50$ earbuds that blow the 3's away. It's horrible the public was not informed that they made a change and took away the bass and volume to protect them from any law suits do to ear damage as I was told from a se our advisor. Shame on you apple from a what use to be a happy satisfied customer, I will no longer purchase from you.

    Powerbeats wireless earphones

    Although apple support is very helpful and I had zero issues getting them replaced multiple times, I am on my third pair in less than 7 months. I sweat a lot during my workouts, and that seems to be the only conclusion I can make as to why they just break on me a lot. They are bad quality and not build to last even through a sweaty workout. I am disappointed in this product. I use these every day and when they break... its a bad day

    Terrible quality - rigid ear hook will snap off at some point

    I’ve used these for 8 months before one ear-hook snapped off. The metal pin is too rigid and will not bend well over your ear. I’ve sent them to Apple to fix and they asked for repair fees. I’m really upset how badly designed these are. Do not buy these if you workout frequently. They will not last!!!

    Worst product ever created by mankind, in the history of mankind. EVER.

    Same problem as thousands, and I mean Millions of people around the world. Even astronauts are having the same issue with the "Powerless" Beats 3. These were a christmas gift, this year. On my third pair. All due to the same issue. Garbage product.
