    Don't last

    I am a student so I would hope that an expensive pair of headphones could survive being placed in my backpack... but no, not the case. After only a year, pieces broke off (the front of the sound button and a chunk of the left ear bud). SO disappointing. Of course you have to pay 99$ to have them fixed by Apple when they are out of warranty.

    Powerbeats are BEAT!

    Not worth the money... you can get the same reliability with two Dunkin Donut cups and a string. Mine are 6 months old, and at first seemed great. Then they quit charging correctly. Now they do not charge at all and do not work. I am out $200 for something that didn't last 1 year. BUY SOMETHING ELSE!!!!!!!

    Perfect for workouts

    I got these as a gift and they were my very first pair of beats. As someone who does a lot of cardio in the gym, they were so perfect for sprints and I was surprised at how much I could sweat without them becoming too uncomfortable! The battery life was awesome too, and the wireless connection was always really easy and fast! Only downside is that everyone wants beats, and after having them for a month and a half, I left them on my treadmill to get some water, and boom. Stolen. Workouts really aren't the same without them!

    Great--when they work.

    The headphones alternate between perfect performance and riddled with connectivity issues. . Pairing between the apple watch is becoming more and more of a problem. The same BT pairing/connecting problem exists with my iPhone and MacBook Air---and the problem is becoming more frequent. When they work it's flawless. But too often it requires a reset and/or "forget this device" pairing/connecting again. And even that sometimes doesn't work. I'd make the purchase again, but they really need to sort out the connectivity.

    awful Battery

    This is my second replacement pair that has broken due to battery issues within the same year and now they wont even replace them a third time because I am out of the original warraty date although the same issue keeps happening. DO NOT BUY. Huge waste of money and honestly there are better headphones out there that wont break the bank

    Great... WHEN it works

    Read some other reviews with same problem. I'm on my 2nd set, but today it seems I might be experiencing the same issues as the last one. I've had them plugged in to charge for 2 hours and still does not show fully charged. Last time this happened, the bluetooth connection constantly dropped for no reason and had to exchange after only 1 month. I've only had these just under 3 months.

    Worst product ever

    Bottom line - don't waste your money on these. I just got my headphones back from being repaired. They started to shut off at 72% and had to be recharged. I just picked them up last week from the store after sending them in for repair and they literally don't charge anymore. If I could get my money back I would. Won't sell them to anyone as any further repairs would be futile.

    Battery dies

    Great sound and love the way it connects to the iPhone but after a couple of months it just turned off and has refused to turn back on. So annoying as I am now without headphones that I know are comfortable for the London marathon. I will be asking for a refund.

    Great Sound But Dies

    The Powerbeats 3 Wireless have amazing sound, but this is the second pair that just stop working. Ran with them yesterday and had a great workout. Tried to use them today and nothing. They won't even respond to the charger. Talk to Apple about the first pair and went through troubleshooting, and they sent me a new pair. Now I guess I will be getting pair number. This is disappointing. These are expensive headphones and should not stop working after 3 weeks. I bought the first pair in December and it is only April and I am moving on to the third pair. I don't know if I would recommend these to anyone for the price.

    Great sound BUT won't pair or turn off!

    I have had two pairs of these earbuds now and I love love love the sound and the feel of them BUT for some reason when I turn them on sometimes they randomly don't pair and won't turn off! I have tried to reset them and nothing works, all I get is the solid white light. I'm really upset about how much I paid for them and they don't even work right. Apple really needs to fix this problem...

    They last 13 months only

    They worked great until a month ago, the left ear piece broke in half. Of course out of manufacture warranty apple won't replace or fix them unless you want to pay $99. The apple employee told me he has seen similar problems with this style. Buy them if you're planning on use them 1 yr only

    Not worth the money

    hardly stayed in my ears when working out, quality is okay could get better for cheaper. isnt designed to fit every ear type and stay in when very active. not worth the money at all. can be very annoying when placing it back in its cheap lil plastic case holder. dont buy

    Not sweat resistant, even from a girl

    I was excited to get these as a birthday gift to go with my new iPhone 7. Was looking forward to having my first pair of wireless ear buds. These were very disappointing!!! The first week I used them for cardio they shut off in middle of my run (only a few miles, nothing crazy). I am now on my 3rd pair and yet again this morning they shut off 30 mins into a run... these are clearly not sweat resistant for cardio use - even from a girl!

    insultingly low quality

    So after the gym, i went home and my music was suddenly becoming softer. I tried to increase the volume button using the buttons on this things and it didnt work. As an IT guy, i was testing if it was just buggy or other things devices do. Nope. It was faulty already in less than a month. I dont even sweat more than the average gym guy. So, dude. Seriously? 1st pair of beats and this is what I experience. And there are a lot of us apparently experiencing this.

    Brilliant sound, connection and battery

    I bought these to replace a wired pair of Bang & Olufsen earphones (which are fantastic) but the powerbeats3 are better in every way, they fit better, they sound better and for gym, running and cycling use they are way better. The wireless connection is brilliant - you can literally be in another room from your phone and the battery life is holding up as expected. The sound is great and as you would expect with beats the bass is spot on but it's not at the expense of the rest of the sound spectrum in my opinion. You get 4 ear bud options so most people should get a great fit in your ear and you can tighten the cable around the back of your head/neck if you feel the need - Great product !

    Looks Amazing and the best Quality earphones on the Market!

    ive had problems with my beats about charging and supported apple support for my problem... they sent me a box to send my beats in for repair or replacement. Amazing work to apple support for hooking me up with new pair of beats (i had warranty tho), Very pleased with the service!

    Do not purchase (Battery Issues!!!)

    I have had these replaced 3 different times through Apple Warranty. Each time due to battery issues and the headphones not being able to recharge. Buyer beware! Waste of money. I do not recommend purchasing these. I am no longer a Beats Customer due to these repeated issues and poor warranty service on flawed replacements time after time.

    Volume controls not working any more

    After only 1 month of usage the volume controls are not working any more. Seems to be a common problem of this product (you find a lot of complaints in the Internet). Very annoying....
