    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.

    Biggest POS earbuds

    Bought these less than 6 weeks ago. Used every day in a weight room environment. Never used for cardio or running or extreme activities with high amounts of sweat. Went to use them today, never having issues before, powered on with white light indicating at least 12 hours of charge remaining. Less than an hour into my workout they were already powering down and completely drained. Now they will not charge, will not power on, will not reset, will not do anything when connected to the usb and computer. These things are absolute garbage. I researched before purchasing and was very hesitant to purchase but thought maybe they wouldn't be a bad pair like so many others have already expressed their displeasure with. I should have trusted my first instinct. Terrible product. Apple should be ashamed for this ridiculousness, but they get their money so... oh well. Will not buy beats ever again! Even when my replacement pair come in I will be selling them to someone.

    The white turned YELLOW!

    I have meticulously cared for these headphones since the day I bought them a year ago. They've never been dropped, stepped on, under water, out in the sun, nothing. The entire volume section that was once white has turned yellow and has no broken off!!! These headphones are in their case when not being used. How could this happen?! I would not purchase them again.

    Terrible Quality

    I used this product on an infrequent basis for about one week before they completely died. Now they will not charge and are completely useless. Do not buy these terrible headphones unless you want to waste $200.

    Unrealiable and very disappointing

    I bought my first pair of PowerBeats3 wireless in May of 2017 as I was in need of a new pair of workout headphones. I've been a fan of the quality and performance of beats for years. I assumed the PowerBeats3 wireless would live up to the high standards I had set for Beats. I was sadly mistaken. Within a matter of weeks, my beats just stopped working. I used them at the gym one day turned and they wouldn't work the next. I charged them, reset them, everything I could in order to restore their function. Nothing worked. I called apple and had them repaired as they were under warranty. A few more weeks passed and the same exact issue occurred. They just stopped working. Once again I sent them in and had a new pair shipped back to me. Then, yet again, on September 14 they stopped working once more. This time, the remote on the cable stopped working. I couldn't pause or play the music or even change the volume so I had to use my phone to control them. Then, all on their own, they began turning the music up and down and pausing the music. I had to stop using them during my workout as it was too distracting and the volume would become deafening. This will be the third and final time I will send them in for a replacement. Each replacement product took about two weeks in order to receive my replacement product. Since I bought them about three and a half months ago,I will have gone a total of six weeks, one and a half months, without being able to use the beats I purchased. Over the last several years, I've had beats solo and pros. These products set a high standard for Beats. I have been let down multiple times during my use of the Powerbeats 3. If they fail for a fourth time, I will gladly be switching to Bose for audio products. I am very disappointed in this product.

    Have returned 3 times

    Do not buy this product. It will not hold a charge and will begin to not perform over 2 months of continuous use. I have had multiple problems with the Beats 2 and 3 models. I am a big apple supporter and they need to trash this product.

    One star because zero stars wasn't an option

    This product is so cheaply made, the over-ear piece fell off of the right bud (a bud I don't use because I need one ear free). And when the Bluetooth won't connect with your phone, beats won't fix their very poor product because the "physical damage" that happened to a bud that doesn't even get used (which makes it virtually impossible to be broken due to lack of wear and tear). Poor product, poor company, overall terrible experience.

    0 Stars wasn't an option

    I purchased these headphones on August 22nd and by September 12th they were dead. The negative: They just stopped working. They won't turn on, theres no charging light, theres just nothing left in them. Additionally when they did work for the 8 or so workouts they didn't get loud enough to push through a workout regardless of what ear bud tip I was using. The positive: The connectivity was great. Never once did they disconnect from my phone. Summary: I read the reviews, bought them and hoped for the best but ill be returning them and trying out the Bose product. TRUST ME THEY WILL - NOT - LAST. If you don't follow the advice of this review and ALL the other reviews then at least buy the extra warranty from the store.... you WILL need it when the inevitably fail to work.

    Total garbage

    Bought them and only lasted 2 months. Then it was replaced by Apple and those ones also lasted only 2 months. I really regret purchasing this garbage. There is warranty on it so I guess I will burn through another couple of them before the warranty expires - but now I have to buy another earphone as I need it in the gym at least six times a week and I need another one while this is being replaced (~10 days to turn it around). I will never buy any Beats products again. Total garbage.

    Third Time's Not the Charm...

    First pair broke just after a month, sent them back. Amazon was kind enough to take the return even though they were just over a month old. Second pair broke after about 4 months. Sent in for repair. Third party repair facility sent on to Apple who just sent back a new pair. Third pair broke after a week. Amazon just refunded me the money. Good on Amazon for their customer service. Terrible product. So so bad. So many reviews say these are terrible and yet, they're all I see in the gym.

    Not Dependable for Exercise

    I was initially impressed with these headphones while listening to them at work but the headphones are not suitable for exercise. Whenever there is even a small amount of moisture the volume will intermittently decrease or increase on its own and the power button -- whether used when dry or with mild perspiration -- will sometimes not work or require repeated presses to activate. I have sent the headphones in for service but am concerned this may be a problem (with the sealing of the switches?) that is inherent to the design. While I wait for a replacement I have reverted to a $10 pair of wired headphones that are not as convenient but work perfectly.

    SAVE YOUR MONEY

    As many of you reading this already know, the power beats 3 are NOT sweat resistant and will inevitably stop working. Apple - your name is now synonymous with Beats and this goes against everything you stand for. As a long time apple fan (5+ iPhones, 2 MacBooks, 2 iPads, 1 Apple Watch) this is UNACCEPTABLE. Either discontinue selling the headphones and refund everyone their money, or FIX the headphones.

    Defective Product

    Defective. It's the only way to describe these headphones I got as a gift last Christmas. Now 8 months later, they will not charge. Once they get wet with sweat they will shut down and won't turn on. Sometimes, if you're lucky, they will charge after at least 18 hours and they will work, but if you decide to use them again at the gym, they will eventually shut down again. Mine have been charging for the last 3 days and nothing's happening. DO NOT BUY!!!!!
