    Terrible, just terrible

    I'm now on my 4th pair. I continue to have the same issues, the controls stop working and the volume has a mind of its own. I used to think it was my phone but I have two iPhones and I have the same issue on both of them. I found out today that sweat can damage the headphones. WTF? I bought these to run in and now I'm finding out that I shouldn't sweat on them. it was actually recommended that I use a hairdryer on them after I use them, really??. I used to have a pair of Jaybirds that I did 3 Marathons in and never had an issue. I lost them and figured I'd try Beats. When they work they are amazing, too bad sweat is it's kryptonite. Definitely not worth $200, not even worth $50. Blown away that these headphones have not been recalled.

    The Worst Product Apple Has

    I just returned from the Apple Store to turn in my 3rd pair. All three have failed within 6 months due to losing a charge and not taking a charge. I keep getting replacement pairs that fail like the previous ones. Never ever buy this product unless you enjoy going through the replacement process and being without them for a week while they get replaced. One would think that by now Apple is losing so much money on shipping and replacement costs that they would offer a free replacement option other than Powerbeats3! I will just keep sending them back for replacements until they finally get the idea!

    Good. When they work......

    I had the powebeats 2 and never experienced a problem until i broke them from one too many snowboarding falls. So i decided the powerbeats 3 would be a great replacement. I have had them for 2 weeks and only wear them at the gym. Everytime about halfway through my workout they just turn off. Sometimes they will turn right back on and sometimes i have to wait a few minutes. would not recommend this product for workout/physical activities because of the annoyance of having to turn them on after every two minutes

    the worst bluetooth connection

    these headphones cut off every other second !! You cant put your phone in your pocket because the connection to the phone cuts off! total waste of money false advertisement extremely dissatisfied with this product and the only reason I gave it 1 star was bc it didn't let me give it a fat ZERO!!!!!! and the warranty is the worst I had to return this product 3 times and each time the same thing waste of my time and money .

    Good product but not made for workouts

    As other people have reported, I have experienced issues with the mic/controller after 4 months use and some workouts. Apple has exchanged it for a new one, but it after reading so many people experienced this I expect I'll keep having this issues until I run out of warranty. If you're looking for a headphone to workout, you're better off looking elsewhere because Apple / Beats really missed the mark on this one. For other uses, it's a good headphone.

    Wont charge, started falling apart.

    So I'd had them for a while until I hit the 6 months mark they started to literally fall apart. First they stopped charging, then the plastic covering the buttons broke off which now, I dont have any buttons to adjust the volume with. And now, the metal rods that hold the earpieces together came out of their rubber coating and they are sticking out... Its even an embarrassment to wear these things in public now... What a shame.

    Terrible Earphones

    These wireless earphones lasted only a few months. Won't charge at all. I use them for everyday walking and gym workouts. They are the worst investment in wireless Earphones at the price. Do not buy them!

    Always breaking, terrible product

    On my way to the third Beats headset in less then a year. The quality of this product is appalling considering the price, First time it didn't charge and needed to be replaced, now it doesn't turn on and needs to be replaced.

    This is not a chinese knockoff, these are 200 dollar headphones bought directly from Apple website. Will never buy a Beats product ever again, and highly advice people refrain from buying. Certainly not worth the money, and you will spend half your time waiting for replacements (until the warranty expires, then .... ).

    Terrible, just terrible.

    DON'T BUY

    They can not hold a charge and I do believe it is because I worked out with them and I would sweat. It was a waste of 200 dollars. Not surprise Apple has not recalled them yet but whatever.

    Not made for working out

    As soon as I start working out and slightly perspiring the volume and pause function goes haywire just like everyone else is reporting.

    Avoid at all Costs

    My second pair just crapped out. Same as all the other posters, sweat is the enemy. Why have them if this is the outcome? I have so many Apple products, I could be an endorser, but these are total junk. They should refund and apologize to all who were sucked in.

    3 pairs later, still don't work!!

    I've had it with this product. I am now on my THIRD pair of headphones and am still having issues. The first pair worked great for the first few months when I was traveling, but as soon as I started using them to exercise they crapped out. Volume issues, pairing issues, pause/volume button stopped working. So Apple sent me a new pair... I didn't even have a chance to use them because they had the same problems. Now I'm on my third pair and am having issues turning them on and off. I'm done. Apple needs to recall this product or at least give people their money back after they've gone through numerous replacement pairs.

    HORRIBLE!!! NOT SWEAT RESISTANT!!!!

    I should have known better after having had this issue with the Powerbeats 2, but just like everyone else, sweat destroys them! When I first got them, they lasted a month, then I knew what I was in for with the 3s. They would automatically shut off, not hold a charge, then just flat out wouldn't turn on. Of course, send for repair, then I'm lucky if they last two weeks. I'm getting ready to send them off for the third time. Ridiculous...Apple usually has great customer service, but I'm left with no other option than to repeat this process until my warranty is up. They won't even tell me what is causing the issue! It's kind of criminal that this is allowed to happen when it's so obvious a problem for almost everyone who uses them. Would give a zero if I could...

    What a waste of money

    Stay away from these - got them less than 3 months and already need replacement.
    Battery is draining at a fast rate and the device is not even on (and won't turn on!).
    Take your money elsewhere
    One of Apple's worst acquisitions ...
    Giving 1 star just because it won't let me enter a review with 0

    Won't last long

    For me they sounded great, worked with my iWatch when running. Cool!
    But they were completely dead 6 months in. ~£150 is too much for a shoddy product such as this.

    Terrible quality

    I literally begggggged my friend (who hates apple) to get me these headphones and when I got them for Christmas I was sooo excited!! Two months go by and they stop working all of a sudden so I had them replaced. Two months later my second pair has died and won't stay on more than 5 minutes �� I'm so irritated that I got 200 dollar headphones that can't last even a year. Thanks a lot apple ����

    Not sweat resistant!

    Unfortunately these are not sweat resistant. They break every few weeks when I run with them. The longest a single pair has lasted for me is 68 days. The only reason that particular pair lasted for 68 days is because I stopped using them for 40 days after my marathon training ended. I received my first pair on November 11, 2016 and my sixth pair is on the way (I am writing this on July 5, 2017). At least Apple support keeps sending me a new pair, but I know I will get exactly one year of use out of these (because the warranty will expire). Not a good deal considering they sell for $200 and I had to buy a second pair of headphones to use every time I need to ship these back (different brand, of course!). There is clearly a design flaw with these headphones.

    Dont Last - Not Sweat Resistant

    I have purchased 2 separate pairs of beats and both start to increase / decrease volume, pause / play music and launch siri with out me touching the controls when I run. This includes both pairs of headphones and the replacements I have received. Rather pay for new headphones than get ANOTHER replacement of these

    Apple should recall

    I can't believe Apple spent 3billion on buying these.
    They have a incredible look,feel and sound to them but these are ridiculous. The constant changing the volume and activating Siri is too much. I'm constantly battling with volume control. Not to mention it's inability to connect to your devices or to turn them off makes this almost unbearable.
    I wish I didn't spend 249$ on this product. This is the first Apple product I absolutely hate. Shame on you!!
