    Unreliable & poor quality

    I have had 2 pairs fail completely within 6 months. I used them for perhaps a total of 6/7 hours per week, solely for working out. The price point would infer top-of-the-line, state-of-the-art technology and durability. Unfortunately, they are neither. I will be returning yet again to my local Apple store and requesting a full refund. There is very simply no excuse for a product that fails so regularly, regardless of cost. The price point on this faulty product makes this situation that much more egregious.

    I FUCKN HATE THESE

    So i bought these Powerbeats in April and it is currently The beginning of August and they're totally failing me!!!! I already sent them in recently (just got them back 2 days ago) because they weren't charging. I checked the powersource connected many different types of chargers and it still wasn't charging. When I got it back from being repaired it worked fine. Then I charged it again and I want to use them to workout but they're not turning on. I would hate to have to keep sending this product back. Maybe there's some faulty wires or maybe it's me. But I've had my Apple earphones for way longer and I've never had problems with them. So why is this happening with this beats. Idk what to do honestly and this feeling sucks. $150 down the drain! Go and buy some other quality workout headphones that would have a longer lifetime than this piece of poo

    Great Fit/Sound, AWFUL DURABILITY

    I spent $150 on this product thinking that I would get wireless headphones that have great sound, fit well, and last long. I was right about the first two, but they are SO FRAGILE! Within the first week, the volume/pause button was all messed up and each time I paused, the button became confused with other functions. I sent it in for a repair, and Apple provided me with a brand new set and that was at the end of February. Four months later, this new set won't even turn on! This time, I sent it into Amazon for a repair, and I have yet to receive my headphones back! I blame Amazon for the shipping delay, but I really blame Beats for creating such a poorly constructed and non-durable product. Definitely not worth $150 price tag!!! Imagine having to send back such an expensive product TWICE in the span of 4-5 months! I would like a full refund!

    Should cost $50

    The fact that these cost $200 is hilarious. I got them for free from buying a MacBook, otherwise I never would have bought them. I do not see a sound quality difference between these and the standard apple headphones that come with the iPhone. You are paying $200 to have the "Beats" logo in your ear, not for sound quality. Please dont waste your money. Check out Bose.

    Really cheaply built

    I bought my beats with an iPad, paid $50 for them. Still too much. These are $35 headphones- certainly not $200. Apple is raping everyone who pays that for these. They're not comfortable, and certainly not well-designed. The battery life seems to be fantastic though- I just can't wear them long enough to find out because they press on my inner-ear, making my ears throb and I have to take them off. They're light, so that's good. The sound is, IMO, mediocre. In the end, for it doesn't matter how light, how long the battery lasts, or how they look and sound- if you can't wear them, everything else becomes irrelevant. Yeah, I'd pay $20 for another pair. Maybe. .... naw.... after careful consideration, I'd spend that $20 on a different headphone.

    Not Sweat-proof

    I just purchased mine less than 2 months ago and they're already kaput!!! These were by far the most comfortable and easy to wear headphones for working out. I've had others that constantly needed adjusting or that would fall out. In addition, these POWERBEATS had a sound that was phenomenal! I loved them so much I would even use them when I did lawn work. When I first purchased them I believed that $200 was outrageous, especially because you couldn't store music on them. However, after the first use I was sold and believed that they were well worth it. They finally crapped out less than 2 days ago. This was after I took great care in storing them when not in use and charging them as directed. Now they charge and connect to my device but no sound. Nothing. I could tell something was up the last time I used them as the music started to get "static-y" and garbled. I though it was a charging issue so I recharged them accordingly and still no sound when I connected them to two different devices. Since I sweat a lot during my workouts this is the only conclusion that I could come to as to what caused them to die on me. This is sad because they are advertised to hold up to perspiration--which is the reason why I selected and purchased these. They are not sweat-proof as advertised. For $200, I was expecting a high-quality item. Instead I got a high-priced item with a half-a$$ed performance. Save your money and get a different brand or be prepared to take these back every 30 days.

    Over priced and poor quality...

    From the time I purchased the Beats to opening the box, I was so excited! The sound quality let me down immediately. I figured at least they looked cool for my workout. Now I have had my Powerbeats3 just over a month and they will not turn on, will not charge.... NOTHING! SAVE YOUR MONEY, DO NOT BUY POWERBEATS3; THEY ARE GARBAGE!

    Poorly made

    After 7 months of use, ear hooks came off because the plastic that was holding it in place broke. Checked the Apple Store and it's not even viable for 1 year warranty as it is physical damage.

    Don't waste your money

    If you are looking for a pair of earbuds to workout with, these aren't the ones for you. My first pair died after a workout. On/off button stopped working. Took back to the Apple Store and they exchanged which was super cool. Took the second pair out today for a mountain bike ride and they died about 3 miles in. Can't even turn em on. Opened up the charging port and there was sweat in em. Which was odd-- I thought they were sweat resistant??? Not even going to bother taking em in again. I guess if you don't plan on sweating during a workout they may work for you. I need a pair that can keep up so I will be looking elsewhere. I'm not mad beats, I'm disappointed.

    They keep turning off automatically

    I am very frustrated with my Powerbeats3. They worked great for a few weeks and then they started randomly turning off while I was working out. Every time this happened the headphones were charged between 50% and 100%. I contacted support and they arranged to have them sent back in to be repaired or replaced. I mailed them in and a few days later received the same pair back with a note stating that nothing was wrong with the headphones. I was skeptical that everything was fine. Today, the problem arose again. I was 30 minutes into my workout and they disconnected from my iPhone and turned off. The worst part is they won't turn back on (even after trying to reset them) for several hours. I would not buy again.

    Volume is faint

    This is about your wireless beats by dre. I couldn't find a feedback section on them so I decided to put it here. All off the apple products I have ever bought have been great. However the beats by dre are trash. By far the worst product apple has. I spent $200 on a pair of headphones that ended up malfunctioning on me. The volume goes up and down on its own and most of the time is faint. Your beats by dre suck, headphone that cost 200 shouldn't just lose volume. The reason I paid $200 in the first place is You get what you pay for (not in this case). There is no way I'm spending anymore money on your shifty headphones. I wouldn't recommend anyone to purchase this product. Thanks for nothing, Aggravated consumer

    Amazing.

    The reviews are the hardest part of purchasing Beats products as everyone compares them the highest level of audio standards as possible. As such, trying them out for yourself is the best way to make a judgement. I brought these a week ago and they do not disappoint!! Bass, acoustics and clarity is amazing! I have an android so i miss out on the instant connection and the HD Dirac sound but these baby's supply! 10/10 would buy again! (Unboxing experience was absolutely superb!)

    so disappointed- fool me twice shame on me

    I had the previous beats and went through 3 different sets of them returning them within the warranty period to be shipped new ones. Apple does a good job of turning around a new pair for you but it was frustrating. Constantly shorting out, not being able to adjust the volume, losing blue tooth connection, etc, etc. Not sure if it is due to the sweat when I run or if it is just generally poor quality. So I hoped (bad strategy) that the new beats 3 would deal with these issues. NOPE!!! Now when I run the volume just randomly turns itself down and skips song tracks without me doing anything. Then I can't control the volume through the headphones, only through the phone, can't turn them off. I have tried resets, i have even gotten a new iPhone in the middle of the process. The one constant is that these headphones are not reliable. Very frustrating when you realize what they cost. I have now purchased several pairs of wireless bluetooth headphones for about $30 and have had absolutely no problems with those. You should be ashamed of yourself apple. I should also be ashamed of myself for not paying close enough attention to these reviews and avoiding wasting hundreds of dollars on beats 2 and beats 2 wireless earphones.

    NOT for runners

    I run almost every day. I've had to warranty replace these three times. Now they are out of warranty and don't work again. I love the earbuds but they simply do not hold up to the sweat. The volume toggle splits first and then they no longer work. Sad but true. I can't buy these again.

    Poor quality. Do not buy.

    Received as a gift in March 2017. They stopped accepting any charge within a month. Apple sent them off for repair. Worked another few weeks, then Apple replaced them. Again, a couple of weeks later and they randomly quit and don't charge. When they work they're great, but unfortunately, that seems to max out at 2-3 weeks. Now I'm trying to get a refund or alternative product.

    The Best Wireless Earbuds for any Apple Owner.

    I bought these on sale from Amazon, going in I wanted something with good sound, long battery life and superb comfort and hold and I just couldn't go past the Powerbeats 3. Beats and Apple have done an amazing job with these Earbuds, keeping them simple, stylish and superbly finished. They offer loud heart pounding sound that would please any Audiophile. A extremely long battery life that is also energy efficient and quick to charge. The remote talk panel is in a good spot thats easy to reach no matter the way you where these and its buttons are responsive and the microphone is above average. The comfort is outstanding, I where these for hours a day while at work, gym, home and just relaxing. Ive managed to go the full 12 hours without needing to remove them which proves they not only stay in place but don't hurt or fatigue the ear. They don't fully block out all sounds but get loud enough that you can hear every detail in your music and quite enough that you can hear everything around you while still retaining crystal clear audio quality. Couldn't recommend these more, plenty of colour options for anyones tastes and they are packed full of features to keep you happy all day. Trust the reviews and do your self a favour and get a pair. They are the perfect companion for the iPhone 7.

    Love, love, love these headphones

    I didn't think I would like these at first and I couldn't see myself spending this much money on some headphones, but they are worth every penny. When I run, they stay in place, the sound quality of course is great and they do a pretty good job of cancelling out noise. They're also very comfortable and came with different size earbuds. Now that I have them, I don't know what I'd do without them. I'd recommend them to anyone.

    Not Sweat Resistant

    "To fuel multiple workouts, elevate your training with powerful, dynamic sound and up to 12 hours of battery life." Well the fuel multiple workouts is not right. I can't even get 5 minutes into a workout without the power beats failing. Even mowing the yard on a 80 degree day will cause them to fail. I have to put in my free Samsung ones i got with my daughters phone to work out with. I can wear them on walks and at work but when i start exercising they fail. I am reading it is because they are not sweat resistant. If that is so then why have the "fuel multiple workouts" stated as description. I won these at a company event where I was offered an autograph football by a retired first string NFL player or the powerbeats3. I chose wrong. These should be considered a manufacture defect and replaced with something that can handle its sole purpose. Since mine were free i would even consider S&H. What do you say Apple? Can you afford that?

    Constantly break

    Powerbeats 3 no better quality than earlier versions. Wether they just stop working altogether or stop pairing the quality is terrible. Every version I've owned lasted me less than 90 days. Best buy probably hates me for all the exchanges. Read amazon reviews too. Great when they work but I've yet to own a pair that has lasted more than 90 days.
