    Disappointment

    • Written by Luke N from Charlotte

    Currently on second replacement pair of my powerbeats3 wireless headphones that I purchased in July of 2018. I am very disappointed in the quality of this Apple product as I expect a certain level of quality when paying a premium for any Apple product or owned brand. Advertising this product as sweatproof is inaccurate and simply not true. Once my warranty and ability to replace defective products has come to an end I will be moving on to another brand of headphones that will meet my expectations and withstand, adequately, the activity they are most intended for of working out/activities involving sweat.

    NOT Sweat resistant

    • Written by Caleb H from Fremont

    I have gone through 2 pairs of these and they have both short circuited after wearing them to the gym for some time and sweat gets on the microphone. They refuse to turn on or charge after and are now deemed useless. Save your money and get something more worth.

    Dying product for financial gain.

    • Written by Matthew D from Fargo

    Unfortunately my Powerbeats3 earphones refuse to turn on and connect to bluetooth devices after approximately 18 months of moderate use. I had the exact same issue with the original Powerbeats along the same timeline. Why would apple sell a product that lasts causing them to generate less revenue? The left hand knows what the right hand is doing.

    Worst headphone

    • Written by Rajiv S from Edina

    I wish I read reviews before buying Power beats 3. I purchased through amazon and the return period is over - is the only reason for keeping them. I wish I bought airpods than power beats 3.
    Not worth for money
    Sound terrible

    not for working out and exercising / sweating

    • Written by ALEXANDER I from American Canyon

    using these for exercise will lead to loss of function. Sweat induced dysfunction.

    Not sweat proof in the least

    • Written by Alison A from Charlotte

    When runners select gear they expect it to be dependable and at the least not interfere with their routine. I could never recommend these to anyone active. For a product that is advertised as intended for active ware they fail too often. I started with Powerbeats 2 less than three years ago. I have now had my third failure with the newest Powerbeats 3. Apple graciously replaced the first two pair but no w claims that the replacement pair falls under the original warranty. I assume they are bleeding cash replacing the numerous failed units.

    Disappointed and surprised tbh

    • Written by Olivia H from Bedford

    I really liked these headphones! Emphasis on the past tense... got them as a Xmas gift so only had them for about 6 months and they’ve already crapped out on me! Won’t turn on, won’t take a charge, nothing. Honestly the sound quality was never that great, especially for beats, but I did like how they fit and stayed on so well, especially since I’m someone who HATES ear buds you gotta really jamb in there. Safe to I wish I’d read all these fellow scathing reviews before spending so much money on them... don’t know if They’re poorly made or not nearly as resistant to sweat as they claim but I’m so upset

    ZERO STARS - NEVER BUY BEATS!!!!

    • Written by Ryan W from farmington

    IVE HAD FIVE REPLACEMENTS ON NUMEROUS TYPES OF BEATS. THEY ARE ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THESE PRODUCTS. BUYING A $1.00 PAIR AND THROWING THEM AWAY EVERY DAY IS EVEN A BETTER CHOICE.

    HIGH PRICE, CHEAP PRODUCT w/ a very POOR WARRANTY

    • Written by Jada R from Ypsilanti

    This was my second pair of beats headphones that both end up having exposed wires on one end of the earbud. The rubber is still intact and yet has detached from the earbud exposing one side of the wire. And now that head phones have no sound at all; and the other pair has tons of static on one side and the other side doesn't have any sound! Don't let the name brand fool you! I've purchased a pair of Sony wireless earbuds for less than half the cost of these over priced "Beats" and I have no issues with the rubber detaching, no exposure of wires, no charging issues and I run with them, so they are also sweat proof as well! AND, if I had an issue with them, I could return them with my receipt for FULL REFUND or EXCHANGE!! Apple/Beats... is a rip off!
    -Highly DISsatisfied "former" customer!

    An apple/beats racket

    • Written by Donald V from Chesterfield

    Completely worthless. I had mine for six months, and the earpiece fell off. Best Buy and the apple store said that they would be covered under warranty. After sending them in the “depot” said there was “water damage” so they wouldn’t replace them. But, would charge me $99, the price I paid for them in the first place, to repair them. These are supposed to be workout headphones and get water damage from sweat? Just an excuse to get out of replacing them. I’m disappointed apple and beats. You just lost a longtime customer. Guess you’re too big to take care of your small consumers, huh? Don’t buy! They’re not any better than the $5 pair you can get at the gas station, sound quality, and build quality. I’d give zero stars if I could. Count this review as a zero star review and not the one star I have to give. Don’t waste your hard-earned cash.

    Powerbeats 3 wireless

    • Written by David N from Youngwood

    I am extremely disappointed in this product, the headphones will not turn on and when I attempt to charge them, they just blink white and red and do not charge. This product is advertised as being sweat resistant, but after only a few uses in the gym while sweating, this product would randomly disconnect and turn off even after being charged to full battery power. These are extremely over-priced for the product that you get. I'm debating on getting a new pair of wireless headphones from a different brand because these have just given me constant issues since using them for the first time.

    Garbage

    • Written by Christina S from Lithonia

    This is my second pair of beats headphones. The first pair I bought was the BeatX, these did not last longer than three months. I received a new pair from Apple which only lasted 8 more months. I decided to purchase the power beats3 on April 28th 2019. The headphones have now stopped working on June 10th 2019, I am just so disgusted with the quality of these expensive headphone. I will not be purchasing another beat product again.

    Another Broken Ear Piece

    • Written by robert R from charlotte

    I went to put the earbuds in and the ear clip just fell off. I called apple support and they told me I would have to pay $100 to get them replaced. You can order a part on ebay and fix them yourself for $9. Bose would straight up replace their product without charging. Says a lot that Apple won't stand behind their product.

    Ear hook will break off in less than 6 months

    • Written by Alice L from Brooklyn

    We purchased these headphones on 12/26. In May - less than 6 months after purchase - one of the rounded pieces that hooks it on the ear broke off. I contacted Apple to try to get it repaired and they said that that wasn't covered and offered to sell me a new pair fo $100 + shipping and handling. The customer service person shared that she had had the same problem. It's clearly a design flaw that the wire that connects the ear hook to the piece isn't very resilient. I would not recommend these headphones for that reason.

    Bad product

    • Written by Brandon W from Chesapeake

    I bought mine a couple of years ago after I bought a pair for my wife. I had to send both pair back multiple times because the ear piece just fell off. The last pair I got finally worked but just recently stopped, maybe due to sweat. I expected more from both the name and the product.

    NOT SWEAT RESISTANT!!!

    • Written by Nahid U from Upper Darby

    I have been using these for about 2 months at the gym while on the treadmill. I sweat a lot, and lately I’ve noticed that the Powerbeats will randomly increase the volume on its own (nearly blowing out my ear) or then randomly decrease the volume, pause the track, and start skipping and shuffling the tracks (I use Spotify not that this should even matter). It even starts up Siri on it’s own. This was never an issue when I first got them but 2 months in, I put them through the ultimate sweat test and they are definitely a no go. Oh and because I’ve sweat so much, the volume controls do not work when I click them. And the Powerbeats themselves are extremely hard to turn on and off (I have to keep pressing and holding the power button oddly longer than usual). If you’re like me and you’re looking for a pair of earphones that are truly sweat resistant, these are not it, save your money.
