    Do not buy. Apple refuses to address issue

    Powerbeats 3 have failed on me four times in three months... i refused to get a fifth pair!!! I had three blinking white lights, i had failure to charge, i had instant battery drain, and I had random disconnects in the middle of workouts. Wait an inset amount of time until a reconnect could be established but repeat disconnect and failure was imminent! Amazing for the couple of times they worked and will happily buy again once all glitches and issues have been fixed

    Won't charge!

    I bought the powerbeats 3 about 2 weeks ago. I just plugged them in to charge and the red light is on. After an hour the red light is still on but they are supposed to be able to charge 5 minutes for an hour of use. It's been about 3 hours now and the red light is still on. I came to read the reviews and I see so many bad reviews and for this problem. My Apple store is an hour away. So I guess they won't let me return them for my money back? I'll call them in the morning. I really liked them when they worked.

    DO NOT BUY!!!!

    I've had them for a month now. I go for long runs and they turn off randomly do not turn back on again. Sometime I charge it for couple of days and still wouldn't turn back on. This has happened quite often that I want to go back and return them. BY FAR THE WORST PRODUCT OF APPLE!

    Powerbeats 3 Review: Apple disappointment, keep your PB2's!

    I am a big Apple fan. I own a Mac, iPad, iPhone and my Powerbeats 2's have been fantastic. I figured I would try the new Powerbeats3 since these were officially manufactured under Apple's supervision instead of Beats as a standalone company. Two issues: The sound quality is not as good. There is less bass and less roundness to the sound. I showed it to an Apple tech. We compared the PB3 vs. PB2 and he agreed. Furthermore, the clicker is less water resistant. They replaced the rubber skin with an all plastic shell that has significant gaps for water or sweat to enter and short the device. If you only want to talk on the phone, the new chip makes it easier to connect to your phone and the 12 hour battery life is a plus. However, I use my Powerbeats in the yard, running, talking to clients, listening to music, all the time. Hold onto your PB2 for as long as you can or pick up the PB2 on clearance. I hope Apple reads this review and fixes the problems.

    DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT - THIS IS HOPELESS

    Same problem like everyone!!
    I got the powerbeats 3 just over a month ago. After wearing for my several runnings and sweating the volume started fluctuating on its own, and the controls didn't work. I left them alone for a few days, they dried out and seemed to work fine. Went to run, started sweating, and they started acting up again. Volume fluctuations, randomly pausing, etc.

    Sent it for a claim and Apple sent a new one as my second pair, started using it just one day. But looks like the same problem will not be resolved as I saw so many reviewed cases for several claims with a new pair but same problem still remains.

    Very bad experience

    Well, at least I don't feel so alone.
    They stopped working and I can't find a stupid solution. 3 Blinking white lights and they won't turn on. Really, get something else and PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!

    Two Faulty Headphones!

    My husband and I both purchased these headphones. When they are working they are very good - sound and fiti are fantastic.
    The problem is that we have both had to return them due to they stopped charging. Both had the charging issue at about 3 months from purchase. They were purchased 2 months apart at different stores.
    Also experiencing problems with volume where your workout becomes a battle of volume control with your headset that keeps lowering the volume by itself. Pause not working. overall they are an expensive unstable faulty product.
    Thank goodness Apple has great customer service.

    Rubbish, they are not sweat proof

    First got them in Feb 2017, now May 17 and had two pairs, same problem at first volume control started changing volume by itself, then failed completely due to sweat whilst using in the gym, three weeks later I am still trying to get a refund but they are making it very difficult, very poor product and very poor customer service...my advise is do not buy.

    Terrible waste of money

    I am on my second pair of wireless beats headphones, I 'upgraded' from the 2's since they didnt work, and paid the difference to get the 3- same issue. The pause/play button never works, they wont turn off or disconnect from bluetooth, they skip, they turn off when working out, volume goes up and down, I feel I got honestly robbed of $200. Headphones that are a fraction of the cost work better. What am I supposed to do with these now? Apple has my money and I am left with garbage headphones that I cannot use EVER!! DO NOT BUY THESE HEADPHONES!

    Won't hold a charge

    I got these to replace my prior pair -- which mysteriously stopped working after very little use (wouldn't reliably turn on/off). I've used my new powerbeats3 less than 5 times and now they won't hold a charge. And looks like I'm not the only one with this problem. Very disappointing.

    Keep Disconnecting

    Have gone through two pairs of these in 3 months. First pair stopped charging after 3 weeks. Second pair keep disconnecting from my phone when using the nike running app. After they disconnect pressing the power button just causes the white led to flash and they will not turn back on until some random amount of time has passed. Loved the powerbeats2 the new 3 model is terrible.

    Cheaper than cheapest quality

    I bought this product in December 2016.
    Three month of use, volume control does not work when pressed; voice call generate noise; automatically pause the playback;
    Automatically volume going down.
    Shown to Apple customer care "switch"; after one week I got my replacement.
    Just last week in (may 12th 2017);New replacement switched off automatically while playing; when tried to turn on it doesn't respond;
    Long press just flash red led and goes off again. Charged for 30minutes; still the same problem.
    Submitted to switch Apple customer care.

    This is the worst product and one should not invest money to buy this.
    It's minus 5 star rated product.

    Don't buy these

    I've been replacing these headphones at Apple Store since buying them in december. Do not use if you are working out; this is by far the worst product Apple has.

    Bad Quality

    Bought in October and after about 3 months they would suddenly go from 80% battery to 0% within 10 minutes of my workout! I got them replaced twice with the exact same issue. I am going to the store to try and get a refund. For the price I really expected better quality. Stay away from these.

    A big disappointment

    Please pay attention to the negative reviews. I've owned a set of Powerbeats 2 for one year and never had any issues.

    I'm now on my 3rd set of Powerbeats 3, and have had nothing but headaches. My first pair stopped charging altogether after 3 months, my second pair lasted 2 weeks before the volume jumped up and down, and I'm waiting on my 3rd pair to arrive.

    These new Powerbeats 3 just aren't worth the headache. If you're in the market for Bluetooth workout headphones, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.

    Terrible Product

    Well, here's hoping this review helps somebody out there. Coming from someone who never, never, ever writes reviews, please take this to heart. Do not buy this product. Save your money. Don't get fooled into thinking this product will be normal apple quality when buying. I've been buying the iphone since the original and don't see myself straying anytime soon, but the Powerbeats 3 Wireless are worthless if you are active in the gym and sweat. My first pair died after about a month and I"m currently in the process of waiting for my replacement from Apple. After reading the other reviews, I don't anticipate this will be the only time I go through the process. Be smarter than I was. Save your money. Look somewhere else.

    Don't buy them

    Bought these for using it in the gym and after a month of use I had trouble connecting them. The problem started by difficulties connecting them to downright unusable. Earphones this expensive should last much longer than this.

    Stopped working after 4 uses

    I've been using my Powerbeats3 for the gym. They stopped working the 4th time I went. The volume control and play/pause button stopped working and now randomly start changing volume and tracks. Horrible product. I want a refund!

    Dies within months

    I am awaiting my 3rd pair now. Descent sound and performance . First pair lasted 1 month. 2nd pair lasted 4 months. Both was same problem . Get to a fail point where they blink 3 times and won't turn on. You'll go through resets and checking firmware but apple goes no further... You just have to get them replaced.. guess I'll do this til my year is up and continue my trend of slowly losing confidence in Apple products:(. Too bad... But this is an expensive feat.
