    The Best

    I got the PowerBeats 3 for Christmas. And it is the best pair of earbuds. It sounds so good. And it is the best!

    Powerbeats3 can’t stand the cold - go back to California

    These sound nice for the 5 minutes they work here in Toronto on a cold day. Oh well, back to my old brand of Bluetooth wireless that don’t mind Sunday long run’s in cold weather.

    Great but will have your ears hurting

    Wore for less than an hour and my ears still hurt 2 hours after taking them off

    Powerbeats3 are WORTHLESS for workouts; a tricke of sweat and they're non-f

    Two sets, both failed within a few weeks of purchase. Returned one set to be repaired. Two workouts on an elliptical trainer and they're DEAD. 2nd set just failed. ZERO stars if allowed. JUNK product not worth $2 let alone $200.

    Sound Great - When They Work, Which Isn't Often

    Whenever these work, they sound great for working out. They block out your surroundings, the bass is deep, they fit well, pair incredibly easily to your iPhone/Watch, etc. But after roughly 2 months of workouts, they started barely holding a charge, nowhere near the 12 hours claimed, and started randomly shutting off after ~45 seconds of playing music. Today, they did the typical "start working out and now they shut off" thing, so I tried to dry them off as best I could, put them on a charger for 8 hours, checked to see if the firmware needed updating, everything I could think of to try to get them to work again. Now they won't even turn on. Don't tout something as being great for working out if they stop working when you use them for the purpose that they're marketed for.

    4 pairs in less than a year

    After my Powerbeats2 died out at the end of last year I upgraded to the Powerbeats3 in May. In less than a week they stopped working (would not power on at all). I took them back to the store with my receipt and got an exchange. Within 2 months they started to randomly start turning down the sound on my device when working out or just stop playing the song. At first I assumed it was my iPhone starting to malfunction. However the headphones eventually died completely. I took them to the Apple store since they were still under warranty. In the meantime I saw another pair on sale at Wal-Mart and figured I would just buy this new pair knowing that Apple would give me a re-furbished pair. Within 3 months both the refurbished pair and the new pair both starting having the same malfunction. Sound turning down repeatedly or stopping the song that is playing or not being able to turn them off at all unless I plug them into a charger. I connected them to my iPad to make sure it wasn't just my device and the exact same scenario. My guess is they are easily damaged by sweat since I only use them for workouts. At any rate for $200 these earphones should perform much better. I will never buy another pair and will choose Bose instead going forward.

    Quality Is Terrible

    I bought my power beats 3 about 6 months ago and not long after noticed that the ear buds would come off quite easily and get lost or left in my gym bag when I would take them out. What was the most disappointing was that the right ear hook without any major trauma or snag just broke off from normal wear. When I called apple support they immediately said that it wouldn't be honored under the warranty. What good is it to make a product that isn't durable and cant even last a year of normal wear. Had this happened several years form now I could understand but the cheap construction is baffling. Never will buy another pair of beats again and would never recommend the product to friends.

    Not suitable for running outside in cold weather (-11C and below)

    The earphones power down when it is minus 11 degrees Centigrade or below. This has happen twice before at these colder temperatures so this time, I tried covering better under my hat but after 3 kilometres, the earphones shutdown. Otherwise, I am satisfied with the product but I can’t use them in cold Canadian temperatures -10C.

    Absolute Garbage!

    Bought these in June 2017. By the mid December I was calling for the third time to have them replaced. They are not sweat resistant as they claim. Once the volume cotrol gets a little sweat on it, they will shut down. You then have to wait for it to dry out before it will reconnect, if it will reconnect. This is a known problem with the product and Apple will not recall them and fix the issue. They just send you more. Which is fine for some I guess but who wants to pay this amount of money and know that after the year warranty is over, their product WILL quit working. I upgraded to Bose and they still made me pay the difference between the two. One would think with all the issues, they would have exchanged them even swap. Will never purchase another Apple product of this is any indication of their quality control now.

    They have some work to do...

    In less than 4 months, I am sending in my 2nd pair for repair. When sweat gets in the controller, it stops working and you will get random volume up/down, random siri, and they won't even turn off! I was really expecting a lot more for the money. These are not ready to be a consumer product, there are some serious design flaws. On the bright side, they sound good while they work and battery life is truly outstanding. I'm buying something else to work out in.

    Apple should acknowledge that those phone have a project defect

    I've made a review before giving powerbeats 3 a 5 star rating. I've should had waited more. I use them to go to gym, and this week, after just 4 weeks of use, my pair failed on me. Took it to apple, and they are replacing it. But after reading all complaints and learning that i will probably have trouble again in near future, i think apple should acknowledge a failed product project and do a recall on all of them!

    poor quality

    On to my fifth set. Use them daily in the gym and i think Apple should stop advertising these as being sweat proof as they clearly are not. To be fair to apple, they replace them very quickly. But they keep breaking over and over again. Would accept a refund and move on if it was an option. I have had the following faults, not turning on, not charging, volume control not working, play/pause not working. So pretty much everything that can break, has broken at some point

    Wireless beats headphone

    These wireless headphones are amazing. The sound quality is great. They fit perfect and doesn’t dangle around when you’re going to a run or exercising.

    Ear hook broke

    They worked well for a while, until one of the ear hooks broke off. I sent it to Apple for repairs and the broken hook was NOT covered under the warranty and I would have spent $99+ just to get the simple hook repaired. ��

    third pair that has broken down

    Bought about 6 months ago. Now my third pair has broken down. I strongly recommend to avoid buying these headphones. Endless trouble.

    Cheap Cheap Cheap

    This is my second pair - and my last. Both pairs died pretty soon after I worked out with them. Just a little sweat did the trick. These are NOT sweat resistant! Cheap and overpriced. You'd do better buying from Kicker or another competitor.

    Went through 5 pairs in less than a year

    As these were my first pair of wireless headphones I was excited to get a quality pair of headphones. My first pair lasted for a while, then during a run they decided to turn off on their own. I was unable to use them whatsoever. So I got them replaced with Apple and the next pair worked for a month and the same issue happened and had to get them replaced again. I was already frustrated at this point so figured I was just getting faulty pairs until the next pair worked for only 3 days at most. Then I got a 4th and those lasted a week. Finally I got another pair and sold them. They claim to be sweat resistant but that is far from the truth. I felt like they weren't going to work for during or after any workout or run. I will never buy Beats headphones again. If you want a good pair of headphones buy some Jaybirds. I was able to run a marathon in them and had no issues.

    Broken Ear Hook - Overpriced Trash

    I have this Powerbeats 3 now since a Year and after the Day the Warranty expire my right ear hook was broken after i grab them out of the case. The Quality of the sound was amazing, the design is okay, but the hole Package ist overpriced and isn´t worth.

    I just bought it

    I read all the reviews and there are a lot of people saying this a great item and there is another party saying its a trash for a lot of money. And I dunno my guts says I choose this. There are a lot of problems they say about not sweat resistant and all but seems fine for me.. and the main thing is its voice quality. it really has ambient noise cancelling even with normal volume voice setting u still can't get any other sound around. And the bass wasn't enough and all u need to do is have a great quality song from spotty or Apple Music and have an equalizer setting. then its like a perfect sound quality.
