    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.

    Volume Control Failed in less than two months

    The volume control doesn't work, they intermittently turn off during a workout. Paid $200 and am completely disappointed. What a terrible product. I assure the good reviews are from people who have not owned beats for very long. I wish I would have checked the rating (1.5 stars) before purchasing. What a joke.

    Great at first.....

    Bought my Powerbeats3 in June 2017. Absolutely loved them! Best sound quality, fits over the ear better than Beats2. The control unit is so much better; less chance of the rubber casing to tear after continuous use. It is now September and I have to return them. Control buttons no longer work and they are possessed. As I listen to music (controlling from my iPhone), the headphone's volume either turns all the way up, mute, or just stop working. Battery is charged at 95% by the way. Was thinking of exchanging them, but after reading many reviews that this is a problem, not so sure. Why hasn't Apple addressed this? Just another reason for my husband to hate any and all Apple products :/

    Technical difficulties within 2 months of purchase

    They pick and choose when they want to connect to my phone's Bluetooth. Some days it will work just fine, but right now they don't connect at all or they will stay connected for 20 mins and then disconnect. Don't know why maybe I just got a lemon. But if I can't get these replaced I'm just going to go back to JayBirds, even though I like the look of these more.

    Powerbeats 3

    I love these powerbeats 3 the battery life is my favorite bc i travel a lot. The sound is always the best on beats and loud just the way i like it. The only thing that i think would have made it better is that it Dont have a way to skip songs other then that im happy

    Insanity

    Insanity, doing the same thing over again and expecting a different result...This is my third pair of Powerbeats, I've purchased Versions 1, 2 and now 3. The first month is great, second, even better, then, around the 6-month mark, without fail, regardless of version, the battery stops accepting a charge and headphones are rendered USELESS! Stop the madness!!!!

    DO NOT BUY!!!!!!

    First of all,, they sound great while they work and that's about all the positive,, the first pair I bought lasted about 2 months and completely quite working so I exchanged them for the second pair hoping that may b these would perform as advertised and last longer boy was I wrong,, they lasted for 1 month and quit working,, I use these 5 days a week in the gym and they just don't hold up,, I'm very disappointed, we pay a high quality price and expect a high quality product

    Bad sound Quality !

    The price is way too high for this sound quality! Those cheap $20 earphones sound better! Say what you want about BOSE but you get what you pay for. I think Apple know they sucked, so thats why they offer them for free with a purchase of a macbook.
