    Seem to have the same technical issues

    Had for less than a year. The left ear stopped working properly. Returned and replaced with a brand new pair. The very afternoon I picked them up they had the same problem. Must be a design issue. Not worth investing in if you don't want to spent all of your time queuing at an Apple store to get replacements!

    Quality & Endurance not worth the cost!!

    I have been using this headphones for 4 months now. Sound quality is alright compared to usual/normal headphones you can buy under £50. But 4 months into its life, both the speakers stopped working. I think its poor quality of wiring connection. I wouldn't recommend this, unless you want to keep changing headphones every 3-4 months. It does stick on your ears quite well during workouts/running. Liked the sleak design of the wires. But that's about it. Its just a pretty face and little sound quality. Its not for the long use!!

    These are garbage don't buy them

    Honestly, they are held together by hotglue.
    ~ You can hear every bug that flies by while you wear them.
    ~ They don't fit in the ear well, no matter what earbud I put on them.
    ~ the music sounds like its come out of a tin can
    ~ way overpriced for what you are buying.

    DO NOT BUY THESE OVERPRICED PIECES OF PLASTIC.

    Trash

    I ignored the advice that these were terrible quality and only sell because they have Dre on the box. Don't ignore that. View as disposable.

    Very good headphones besides breaking pretty fast

    I bought these headphones a few months back and have to admit that the sound quality is really good. I'd say it particularly caters to fans of Hip-Hop, EDM and other bass heavy music. That being said, I waited a little before writing this review in order to test the durability of the headphones. Low and behold, the left ear piece has stopped functioning after regular use. In all, The sound quality is very good but don't expect them to last very long.

    They are disposable

    I bought a second pair of these because the first ones just died. The second earphones just lasted about 2 years and my left earbud went silent. GONE.
    DO NOT BUY THEM, it's a rip off for disposable earphones. I wish i could give it a worse rate. The sound is great but they are just disposable.

    They don't last!!!

    So, I bought those UrBeats for $99, they died with light usage after 2 months. I did not like their sound quality as it was blurry and the bass was too much. I was expecting good earphones, but they were similar to $15 Earphones from other manufacturers. The microphone and those buttons did not work on any of my macs or my iPhone 5s. I do not recommend this piece of cheap aluminium and plastic to anyone...

    Ok but don't last long

    I have been through 2 pairs of urbeats, they seem to last exactly a year and 1 week (until after your warranty expires). I look after them really well, always wrap them up in the case, and yet after a year in both instances (also two different generations) they seemed to start crackling when you move and eventually the sound just stopped. Generally I wouldn't care about replacing something once a year but given they are a $100 and not I won't be buying again.

    DON'T GET THEM

    AFTER HAVING THEM REPLACE ONCE ALREADY FOR A NEW PAIR IM SO DISAPPOINTED FROM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM REOCCURRING ( NO SOUND IN RIGHT EAR ) , ALL I WANTED TO DO IS LISTEN TO MUSIC AND NOT HAVE ANY FUSS OF REPLACING THEM EVERY 1-2 MONTHS I DID ASK PREVIOUSLY IF I COULD REPLACE THEM BUT UNFORTUNATELY I HAD OPENED THE BOX ( THINKING THAT THEY WOULD BE GOOD ).

    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

    Amazing!

    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.
