    broken power beats

    Bad Product. I used to go to the gym in a regular basis. The left one got broken when I tried to put into my ear, and I just bought this product a year ago. The sound is not that loud as I think.

    Worst pair of beats I've ever had

    I bought these beats 4 months ago and after using them consistently they broke. The sound is extremely low and it's hard to hear the music when at full volume. I tried using the warranty, but they were extremely difficult to work with seeing I do not have the package anymore. Would not recommend this product! Stick to Bose!

    Downgrade - What Happened?

    I was excited to try the latest version of the Powerbeats (I have owned the previous version for quite awhile). The sound quality is definitely lacking. These are not loud. It’s like someone’s grandma scared them into making a softer sounding set of headphones. The controls I was used to are non-existent in this latest version - I can’t pause the music, I can’t double click to skip a song. I had a rough time working out with these and I returned them immediately.

    Where's the Android luv?

    Those that are ALL Bout their Beats are NOT exclusive to Apple users, so when you gonna make them compatible with Android phones/Apps because I have the previous version and REALLY Dig them but HATE that the buttons don't work with my phone? I don't want to stop using them but it SUCKS being on public transpo to handle my day-to-day grind and wanting to Zone OUT all the madness around me and having to find my phone in my work bag to control the volume, skip/pause/replay a song or more importantly answer a phone call! Come on and correct that so I can FINALLY Cut the cord and get these Beats3!!

    Not reliable

    Works for about 2 months then they experience a hardware malfunction. Terrible. I was on my second pair and switched to BOSE.

    Fell apart and will not stay charged: Disappointed

    For $200 you would think that your headphones would last longer than a year. My controls fell apart from sweat getting in them and so did my mom's pair. My mother only had them for four months. I use them about an hour a day and have to charge every single day. I loved them at first, but now I am very disappointed and looking for another brand of wireless headphones that might work and hold up better.

    They just don't work

    I'm on my second pair now and I've treated them like raw eggs after my first one set gave in after 3 months. The volume started to go random and the buttons stopped working. Rebooting and updating did not help. I got the pair replaced without issues (that's what the second star is for), but still, just as with my first set, after a few weeks the volume started adjusting itself to random values. And now I can't even charge them. No light, nothing, niente, nada. I'm just glad I'm not the only one who found out the lifespan is weeks not months. This might make it easier to get at least another pair for the next few weeks. It's a shame, because I have not found better fitting headphones for running, but if they don't work, well they're not of much use, are they?

    Horrible. Do Not Buy

    This is pathetic. I purchased my PB3 yesterday and they are doing this. It sits on the charger with a red light illuminated for about 10 minutes before the light turns off. When I pick up the headset I get a flashing red/white/red/white. I try to turn the headset on, 3 flashing red lights. Nothing happens after that. Wont turn on, won't connect. Left them on the charger overnight, nothing. same process. I expected more from this product, especially since it happens to a lot of people. What a shame beats(apple), what a shame

    Powerbeats3 - Serious issues

    My Powerbeats3 had very serious issues with it's sound. The most terrible experience i had was a sudden acute hoovering sound which could have damaged my eardrums. This happened when i was squatting in the gym with 120KG weight onboard. The music suddenly turned into an acute hoovering or whistling like sound and the effect could have injured my spine. The sound quality of Beats started to deteriorate from the first charging. The bluetooth connection failed to connect to telephone, only connects to Music. The battery last hardly for an hour. Device has been returned for warranty repairs to Virgin Mega Store in Bahrain. Now over couple of weeks past, no news of replacement or repair. The Powerbeats3 not worth buying and can be a serious health hazard. Thanks & kind regards / Hari - Bahrain

    not sweat resistant

    I have been through over 5 pairs of beats in one year. I am a runner and I will admit I do sweat a fair amount. I take really good care of them because they are such an important part of my workout-- and they fail me every single time. they are NOT sweat resistant.

    Short lifespan

    My earbuds worked really good for about 2 or 3 months before I started having issues. The position of the left earbud determines whether my music is played normally or if it is constantly cutting out. I only wore them to the gym and kept them in good condition. Maybe not worth $200 if they don't last more than a year.

    Very fragile and unworthy of the price

    I bought my first powerbeats several years ago, the 1st generation. They lasted almost 3 years due to the construction they were in, great sound quality and base. Unfortunately, Im on my second pair of powerbeats 3 headphones, second pair! i paid over 200 dollars for these and this is the second time they fail me and wont charge or turn on. My recomendation, dont buy these, just buy some wireless headphones from a different brand that will be cheaper and most likely built better.

    Do not buy

    Worst headphones I have ever owned. Have had to replace them multiple times, and they continue to break. I treat them extremely carefully, they just cannot handle sweat. Do not spend your money on these.

    I WAS impressed

    I loved loved my little wireless beats until the headset just stopped working. I think for the money, I should expect more of a life exepectancy than one year, but maybe I am wrong.

    Too fragile

    It's been four months that I bought powerbeats 3 for my workouts . At first I loved them ,the sound quality was excellent and there was no problem pairing them up with my iphone 7 . But within two months one of the earhooks came out and somehow I tried to manage and now the other one came out as well. They don't even cover it under warranty. I suggest not buying it for crossfit and workouts ! Highly disappointed with beats this time .

    Undeniably Beats

    I was slightly skeptical before purchasing my Powerbeats 3 due to some saying the sound signature is off and others saying the ear tips just dont fit. But, I still bought the Powerbeats 3 and im never looking back. Possibly the best sounding Earphones IMO and the ear hooks make it perfect for my sports routines. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. The only downside I could consider for these is the absence of a Powerbeats 3 App which has an EQ etc. Other than that, I am really enjoying my purchase, its definitely worth the money.

    DO. NOT. BUY.

    If I could give these headphones zero stars, I would. They work great for workouts, other then the fact the completely stop working every 2/3 weeks. I am currently on my fifth pair in the past 7 months. DO. NOT. BUY.

    Worse headphones ever!

    I am extremely disappointed with my purchase of these headphones. A few months after purchasing the headphones would shut off after using them for a 1/2 hour and being fully charged. I returned them back to the Apple Store had to wait a few days to get a new pair. A month in from using it the headphones do not turn on. It's frustrating having to go to the store and have to wait for a new pair to come in especially for the price I had to pay.

    Superb!

    These are great! They have a very nice durable plastic and a grippy rubber cord They have very good sound quality and strong bass for that size of them. They come with a little plastic tightener that goes on the center of the cord that you can use so the chord does not bounce up and down on my neck while running, It is not labeled on the box though. The charging time is 1.5 hours from empty. They also come with a nice rubber case for travel. They are overall great earbuds! I have had them for 6 months and I have not yet had any issues with them. I highly suggest them to anyone who wants a good sound experience.
