    Not worth it

    I got my first pair of urBeats for Christmas in 2014 and about 7 months after receiving them the left ear bud stopped working. For almost £80 you'd expect these to work for more than 7 months (and considering how much Beats big themselves up in the media). I contacted Apple and they happily allowed me to return them for a new pair. It was a quick and efficient service but that's not the point, the point is that they should never have broken in the first place. I'm not a rough handler of my urBeats, I'm careful with them so I was surprised to see them breaking already. Now I have my second pair and they have broken today, even this pair have not lasted a year. So I have come to the conclusion that this product is cheaply made and although they give good sound quality this positive aspect of them is very quickly dismissed due to them being fragile and oh-so-easy to break. I'm going to be looking at other brand's for my earphones now - Beats really need to review this product and they need to improve it.

    They don't last!

    Got my first pair of Beats earphones for Christmas 2014. Had to take them back before the years warranty was up because the sound went in the left ear and came apart from the base. It's now April 2016 and I've had them back from Apple for 4 months and the sound has started to go on the left side again. I don't know whether it's because it's the side with the mic/volume control but whatever the reason it's a disgrace that such an expensive product would last for such a short period of time! My €2 Penneys earphones last longer!! Don't waste your money.

    Poor quality for the price

    Bought a pair of beats wireless sports and after 5 months they started to fall apart. I sent them back and they were replaced by Apple 3 months later as still under warranty, and after using the replaced pair just for my workouts for 4 months the new pair has started to fall apart. The quality of the earphones is extremely poor and I would not recommend for anyone to buy them. How can Apple pay millions for such cheap, terrible, second rate quality product and then sell this product on to consumers as if it is high quality product. I will never buy another pair of beats headphones as they are over priced for the exceptionally poor quality they are both on their cnstruction and sound quality.

    Horrible quality assurance

    My first pair got a loose contact only 3 months in, so I had them exchanged. The new pair I got has no bass whatsoever on the left bud. Really disappointed

    The urbeats are very good, I love the sound and the aluminium design makes the earphones last a long time, Iv had them for 4 months now and they are still working well but the paint on the aluminium is starting to wear off and if you look after them they will last a long time. I do recommend them to anyone who is looking for good and high quality earphones.
