    Sound Quality lacks Intensity; Volume still low at Max Level.

    The actual selling point of the Powerbeats3 is the robust and rigid design, 12-hrs battery life and sweat/water resistance. However, Sound Quality still falls below par for audiophiles like myself. I'll rate the Intensity at 80%, having used other audiophile in-ears like Skull Candy Smokin' buds 2 and JVC Xtreme-Xplosivs HAFX1X. I think the Powerbeats3 lacks as much intensity as required to stimulate the release of endorphins. I enjoy my music loud and bass-heavy, that's why I'm writing this sincere review. I believe Beats and Apple can do better. Whenever I listen to my playlist from the Boom App on iOS, the Powerbeats3 sounds better (because of the Effects). In other words, I'll be the happiest customer if Beats/Apple integrates more effects, especially intensity & loudness in the next update of the firmware. With Love, from Nigeria.

    Broke after 4 months

    Same issue as many others. Battery stopped working and wouldn't charge. Apple should admit there's a problem and offer free return and money back but , as usual, they won't admit to a faulty product. Feel ripped off

    Broke after only 6 months

    These things don't sound that great, are not very comfortable, and don't last long. I don't treat my electronics harshly. The cover on the controller popped off after only 6 months and Apple refused to repair them under warranty. Don't waste your money.

    Do not buy this

    1 star is too much to rate this horrible in ear phone. If i could turn back time i will never buy this. Mine broke after 2 months and i sent it back to claim for new one. The one i have is the 4th one yet i still don’t know if it will function properly.
    Each time i have to wait for 2-3 week for the new one to arrive.
    So i’ll do you all a favor just don’t buy it. This actually makes me loose all faith in Apple products.

    would give it 0 stars

    Purchased these end of January 2017. First set stopped working 2 months later, got a second set which stopped working 2 weeks after receiving them. So now I am on the third set which have stopped working after a few months. GARBAGE!! Customer service claims they send new not refurbished headphones... Don't by these overpriced unreliable headphones!!

    Worthless

    I bought a new pair of the Powerbeats3 and within a week of owning them, they stoppped working. After several days of hassle between the sprint store and Apple store, I was finally told to mail them in. So I did, they then mailed me back a new/refurbished pair, which worked great for about a month. Till they stopped working just like the last pair... DONT BUY THEM! THEY'RE WORTHLESS!!

    Best Earphones for a Month

    I love these earbuds but they only lastt a month tops. Apple has replaced them 4-5 times already. It takes longer to get the replacements than they actually work. Comfort is great, sound is great, but they just stop working/charging. Apple really needs to revisit this because I’m not satisfied.

    Love/Hate Them

    They work flawlessly until they mess up. Its been 5 months since I bought them and they won't turn on. I charge them for hours and when I unplug to turn them on I only get three blinking lights. Its frustrating, good thing is that I'm get a new pair sent out but I expected more coming from this brand.

    Horrible compared to Beats2

    I bought the beats3 to replace the beats2 that I had broken. I am not very impressed with them. In reading the recent reviews for beats 3 (I wish I had read before I bought). These are horrible! I will have to super glue my beats2 together. First they don't turn on easily even after charging them for several hours. Only the head set shows on my phone, no battery level. The charging port does not have a cover and is left open. Suppose to last 12 hours I was lucky to get 5 hours. I wear these while working in an office, to listen to music and block out the background noise.

    Keep breaking - don't buy these!!!

    I have owned these earphones for less than a year and they continue to break. I have sent them in for repair/replacement 3 times already, meaning I have had working earphones for about half the time I have owned them. When they are working properly, they are awesome! great sound, great fit- but the BAD definitely outweighs the GOOD in this situation. they are an incredibly unreliable product and I am so unbelievably frustrated and disappointed in this purchase. if i hadn't paid so much for them, i would throw them away and purchase a different brand... save your time, money, and frustration and find a different brand to purchase.

    4th pair of junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I purchased the Powerbeats 2 in September of 2016 about a month later they stop working. I am a sweater when I workout and usually the headphones get sweat on them. I never thought that sweat was contributing to the malfunction. So with no music and the Holiday season I just stopped working out. I started back working out at the beginning of 2017. So in March of 2017 on the 21st, I really was getting serious about my workout so I purchased the Powerbeats 3, in little over a month in May this pair started to have the same problems of the Powerbeats 2. So now I am concerned, I called Apple Support and they approved both pair of my Powerbeats to be repaired and by the end of June I am good to go. So at that time I had two pair of refurbished Powerbeats in which I gave one pair to my wife the Powerbeats 2 and I had the Powerbeats 3. For the months of July, August, and September I didn’t work out. So I started back up in October 2017. Four weeks into working out (guess what) same problem my fourth pair of headphones started malfunctioning like the first 2 pair. The only reason my Powerbeats 2 are still working is because my wife doesn’t workout and hardly ever uses them! Please do not ever buy these headphones they are a piece of junk

    Is this really an Apple product?

    All the reviews are correct. Terrible product. I'm on my 4th pair in 10 months and now it is broken. Apple is great at customer service and replacements but for $200, it's no longer worth my time. I'm moving on to something else. I can't believe that Apple has put their name and reputation on this frequently malfunctioning product. Steve Jobs would have gone ballistic.

    Ear Hooks Break Easily

    Do not buy these. After a few months, the earhooks bend and they will eventually snap off and they will not stay in your ear. Manufacturing defect.

    do not buy.

    these headphone are horrible. To start they don't say connected to whatever device you bluetooth them with there marketed as being able to be 30 feet away from the device but literally the phone can be in my pocket and they don't work. I've called beats about this issue before and they sent me new ones but i had to go through this process three times with three different pairs of these power beats. the pair I'm on now are discontinuing and connecting to the point where you can't even listen to a song no matter how close your phone is to the headphone.Ive gone through all the trouble shooting options and nothing fixes the issue. super frustrating and not worth the money.

    Powerbeats 3 - RIPOFF

    Can i give these less than 1 star? So much for being sweat resistant. Volume control now has a mind of itself. Being a professional trainer and taking my workouts quite seriously, this just doesn't cut it. . Especially for a 200+ set a buds...... TOTAL RIPOFF Done with BEATS

    DO NOT BUY THESE EARPHONES

    I have had these earphones replaced twice for damaged ear hooks. Unless you enjoy sending in items for repair with a turnaround time of seven days, do not buy these earphones. Great sound but terrible quality. I have no idea how the $199 is being spent because the quality of the materials used is TERRIBLE!
