    Not worth the price

    I got the new ones and they aren't worth the price. I had the previous version and they lasted 2 yrs which I think is good considering they were being used 5-6 days/week at the gym. The buttons stopped working so I got this pair. Well this pair lasted 2 weeks before the buttons stopped working. Great! What a waste of money.

    Not sweat resistant

    Works great until you sweat, then the volume goes up or down, as the headphones please. Basically junk as they do not resist sweat as per the advertised features.

    Amazing

    I bought the white pair. They feel very well made and sound amazing. They have a lot of bass but you can also hear the treble and mids. The battery came at 85% charge and is only at 57% after several hours of use. Overall, these headphones are great!

    Not impressed with the sound.....

    Earphones aesthetically look great. Nice fit around the ears. Easy to pair. Sound volume needs improvement. Used the headphones at the gym for the first time, had the volume cranked up to the maximum level and still hard to hear the music on my iPhone. I hope there's a firmware release that can improve the sound quality for $199.

    three weeks out and...

    Three weeks later and my new power beats 3 are already broken. Going in on friday to have them replaced, hopefully the new ones aren't a dud.

    Work great for what I need...

    Use them for working out and they are great. They pair easily and don't lose connection. Is the sound the best thing ever? No, but that's all wireless earbuds as far as I'm concerned. They sound fine for a noisy gym. They don't fall out of my ears, which is a big plus for me. Hate working out and having to constantly stick wireless buds back in my ears because they don't stay put. The battery life is great as well. A little pricey but if something works well, I don't mind. So for my needs, they certainly get 5 stars!

    Would recommend

    I just got a pair of PB3's. My impressions:

    Cons:
    -Carrying case isn't as nice as the 2's. Seems Apple cut back, will be using my PB2's case.
    -No charge port cover. Worried sweat will get in it

    Pros:
    - I actually like the sound quality compared to the 2's. It does emphasis the high end MORE than the 2's. Gives it a better sound balance
    -Key travel is better on the remote
    -Pairing is simpler. Not that it was hard before.
    -#1 improvement, and why I purchased them... battery life!

    Powerbeats3 initial thoughts

    Great sound and RIDICULOUS bass. The bass is so heavy that I actually had to turn it down in my equalizer settings so that it wouldn't overpower the rest of the music. I don't see this as a bad thing because headphones have traditionally had sub-par bass.

    They fit well, don't come off during activities like running or lifting, and pair really easily.

    My only complaint is that the rubber case that comes with them seems cheap and isn't very sturdy. It's tough to quickly put the headphones away in that case and it doesn't seem to provide much protection from the headphones getting squished. Luckily I kept my case from my dead Powerbeats2 because I'll be using it for these now.

    Really bad

    I picked these up today and have been listening to various tracks on them. The short version: they sound really bad.

    I have a pair of the Studio Wireless and the Pros. I love both of them. The Pros provide a more true-to-life, flat sound, and the Studio Wireless enhance the sound a little bit, but both are excellent.

    These Powerbeats3's however, are awful. The treble and mid range is so thin and sounds over compressed. The bass is boomy and too overpowering. Don't get me wrong, I like a little bit of boosted bass in my music or in my car, but the bass on these is just far too much.

    I tried every ear tip provided, and even the better fitting medium size didn't improve the sound quality at all.

    The pairing feature is kind of cool, but once you've paired them with your device, it doesn't do a whole lot that other bluetooth headphones wouldn't already do...

    So many better headphones out there for the price. Don't get these.
