    Worst purchase I've ever made: ZERO STARS

    After returning the first THREE sets of PowerBeats3 back to my local Verizon Wireless shop due to each pair having battery issues, this pair showed promise. Struggled with a crackling sound for the first few hours of connectivity, but AT LEAST it stayed connected beyond the first 2 days. I cased them, cleaned them, protected them from water though they are meant to be workout earphones that could withstand a little sweat, but no.. For 5 months, after about a decent one hour cardio workout, they lose connectivity to my iPhone 7 Plus. And then just wouldn't connect at all. Now, they never fully charge (mind you, i only used the earphones 2 times a week because they were so untrustworthy I couldn't take them to the gym often). Started up the Beats Updater web app to see if they were just out of date each time. Nope.. Even after the one time they needed update I noticed a flaw in the battery percentages. When I would plug them in they would always start at 46%-49% charged. After HOURS OR DAYS of charging they would only charge to 76%-79%. So much for that w1 chip, we're paying a premium for. This is a deal breaker. I'm am definitely dissatisfied with this product, and based on that ABYSMAL overall rating, everyone should receive either their money back or a different pair of WORKING Beats wireless products to replace such shotty craftsmanship. Apparently this problem is alarmingly common within the PowerBeats3 and there has been no public statement from Apple. Congrats. I hope Steve Jobs is cursing in his grave at this "innovation."

    Couldn't be better

    I just bought these about 2 hours ago and absolutely love them. I have used almost every brand imaginable. I have used everything from LG, Skullcandy to Bose etc. All of those are great. Not many complaints. People couldn't hear me very good with the skullcandy, when I talked on the phone so I went looking for new ones. I bought and then paired them to my iPhone, once I got home. I put on music just to try them out and have been listening to music every since. Actually, I am currently jammin out with them. The are loud but don't rattle like some loud speakers do. The clarity is second to none. I am going tomorrow to buy a second pair. Good work on these!

    Straight Trash

    Don't waste your money on this over priced piece of garbage. Spent over $200 on these headphones and three weeks later they broke. Won't turn on, won't charge and won't reset. The knockoff $30 brands are so much better. Do yourself a favor and DON'T buy these unless you like throwing away money. (Honestly I would get more pleasure by lighting my $200 on fire then buy another pair of headphones from this brand)

    Don’t buy them

    I have had 4 different pairs in a year and a half and they break every time. They eventually stop charging and don’t work at all the are good when they work but after the warranty is up they always seem to stop working. Do not buy them unless you want to spend more and more to get them fixed

    Worst 150 dollars I spent in my life.

    I bought these headphones a few months back. They worked great for the first couple of weeks. The they be came garbage they are disconnecting all the time while I am working out. I might be able to get 5 songs out of it then it will disconnect. I tried resetting it I tried updating it but nothing worked. The updater is a piece of garbage too. I connect my beats and start the update then when it is about done with the update it state "update interrupted please connect beats" I tried this 4 to 5 times restarting the beats, web browser and even computer. Still got the same message I wouldn't even touch them while they were updating I would start it and let it go but still didn't work. I will not buy any products from apple or beats again. Thank you for the worst experience. They are also editing my review.

    Disappointed... its awesome when it works

    I had my power beats originals for almost 5yrs and they worked as advertised until a couple of months ago so I thought id upgrade to the Powerbeats 3... the first one had a battery issue after a week of use it only held charge for about 20min... the second one's volume controller messed up (changes volume randomly), the third one had the red/white light blinking issue. The first 3 were also the original Black on black, this time they gave me one of the new Trophy Gold editions and so far so good... fingers crossed!

    Great at first...

    When I first bought them, they worked great, sound quality was wonderful and same with the fit to the ears. However, whenever I work out now they end up powering off after at least 20 minutes... When I try to turn them back on, it gives me three flashing white lights.

    Ok but short life

    These headphones are ok while they work. Unfortunately, they generally last about 2 months before they slowly die. It starts with spotty connectivity, then the remote stops functioning, and finally the device becomes entirely unresponsive. I’ve had these 9 months and am on my third pair now, which is starting to die. So soon to be 4th pair. At least Apple swaps them out while they are under warranty

    On my 4th pair in 5 months.. stay away

    I've had 3 pairs of PowerBeats3 break in 5 months. I wear them 6x a week for about 2 hours a day (at the gym), so I wouldnt say I overuse them, and even if I did, there is no excuse for a 1.5 month life span on these. Absolutely ridiculous. I don't typically leave feedback, but in this scenario I want to give other consumers a heads up and advise to stay away from these. My first pair the sound quality was poor and the buttons didnt work. My last 2 stopped charging after 6 weeks or so.

    Completely Unreliable - Broke within 3 months!!!

    I bought the Powerbeats 3 back in May. I wanted workout earbuds that could handle a intense gym session but nothing crazy. These were good for the first few months then started to not accept a charge. Sometimes I would plug them in a they would light up and charge and other times nothing happened when I plugged them in. When I did get them charged they would die almost immediately even without me using them. Eventually after only 3 months they stopped accepting a charge all together. Overall I am very disappointed and these are a complete was of money. I will be switching to BOSE. Much better reviews online and from my friends who have them. WASTE OF MONEY for this product.

    Micro-usb?

    2017 and these are still being shipped with USB rather than ideally USB-C or at least thunderbolt. Hate having to carry around an old cable just for this when everything Apple is now using USB-C, Thunderbolt or inductive. Also wish they didn't have the cable going between the two. Can't use the AirPods since they dont have hooks to keep them in place during a workout.

    Worst headphones on the market

    This is the second pair of these I’ve purchased in two years because Best Buy recommended them. After 12 months the battery won’t hold a charge no matter how much/little you charge them. Beats refuses to make this right. I will never buy beats again. DO NOT BUY.

    good and bad

    I thought it has good quality but the volume is much lower than the beats urbeats... The battery is very good, 6 hours, thats good point!!! It may worth it... I am not sure if it is a good purchase, need to say.

    Disappointed

    These were a gift from my sister and stopped working after 5 months. Completely dead. The indicator light won't even turn on and won't charge so can't try to factory reset. Very disappointed because they give great sound and are very light fitting.. great for working out. Embarrassed to tell my sister and ask her to return them.

    Love my Powerbeats3

    I go through headphones every 4 months, they usually break or the charge is so short I need a couple to get through a day. These are WONDERFUL, the sound is fabulous, the charge time is at least 12 hours (a lot say 8 hours and are actually 5), they are comfortable and lastly they have lasted over a year! I recommend these to anyone and everyone I know!

    Not worthy for price

    In terms of sound output, these are quite good you can listen for hours without any pain. So much comfortable. But the base is not that much. I used these during work out and just after 2 months of use I was having multiple problems like song play, pause, next, volume up and down automatically. I reset it many times. Somehow I opened the keys cover and found water/sweat inside that cover over the key circuit. I clean and dry whole area and it started working perfectly. Again after 2 months it was not turned on just white LED blinked 3 times and turned off. I charged it but nothing happed so I visited the service center and they gave me a new pair. Let's see how long it will work but one thing is clear, sweat or water resistance is not that much powerful in these beats. Not happy with that...

    Great pair of earphones but they stopped working

    So i bought my Powerbeats 3’s about a month ago and were super excited to use it while running and in the gym, and they were really great... for 3 weeks, until they stopped working. Waiting for a replacement, thankfully it’s covered by the warranty but being obliged to wait for a longer time than that of my usage really is annoying... The Powerbeats 3’s not working seems to be a recurring problem too, so i wish Apple would’ve fixed this problem.
