    Volume control and playback button has stopped working

    I bought this headset thinking it would be such an upgrade for me doing a lot of cardio session, today I had one of those sweaty session and literally found sweat inside the volume control, I thought this was water resistance.

    Very disappointed with these earbuds after only having them for a couple months. The cable management clip and earbuds have already come off and now have to resort to the extras provided of different size.

    No sweat proof

    After a month using it, i face the same problems described here. With sweat starts to stop and change the songs. Now, after all night charging it, stops after only 30 minutes using it!! Frustrated :(

    The quality is lacking especially for the price.

    In order to block out sound the volume must be maxed. They also fit poorly constantly slipping out of my ears.

    Good but over priced

    Looking for a snug fitting, light weight, good (not great) sound quality pair of wireless ear puds? These are the answer.
    BUT, the quality of Beats by Dre products are poor and cheaply made. You must maintain your headphones and handle them with care (i.e. you can't just toss them in your bag after you finish your workout). And MUST be cleaned properly after each use to prevent damage caused by dirt or sweat.
    The battery wont last a life time and I find myself charging them more often then not, but they take less than 30 mins to fully charge so it's not a hassle.
    APPLE SUPPORT has been AMAZING with my purchase as one ear had stopped working entirely, apple support was there to provide the needed repairs.

    - Light weight
    - Fits comfortably and does not fall out of ears
    - Quick charge (less than 30 mins)
    - Easy to clean
    - Apple support/ warranty
    - Good sound quality

    - Price $$$
    - Poorly made = prone to damage
    - Must be extremely cared for
    - Does not completely block out sound (but they are ear buds so this should be expected)
    - Battery does not last that long

    Battery and Charging Issues Need to be FIXED!

    I have went through two pair of these head phones in less than a month. While i love the color options, sound and the theory that the battery last 12 hrs, I have not seen that with the two I have experienced. I received one pair and used it 3 times, 3 one hours runs, the battery died so I went to charge them and only got a flashing red light. I contacted service and they promptly said nothing could be done but sent out a new pair that same day. When I received the new pair a week later the same thing happened, 3 hours use and went to charge them but after about an hour the red light went out and now they won't even turn on or charge now. If they can fix this battery and charging issue I think they would be great quality but until then, they are not that great as you will spend more time sending them back and forth than actually getting use out of them!

    On my second pair of power beats in 3 months (first Powerbeats 2 then the 3's) and already problems, not holding charge, taking forever to charge, losing connection constantly at the gym. Like seriously I charged them for 6 hours they were at 100 % turned them off, 5 hours later I turn them on and there down to 50% without being used. Like comon Apple give your head a shake, guess I'll be returning these as well and moving on to another company.

    iPhone7+ Best Sound Best Battery! Seemless!

    Just got my yellow set in the mail 5 days ago so can't speak on longevity, how ever they are built very well. Great solid construction, quality wire with the slip clip to let you keep it loose on the neck or tight on the back of the head. The battery life on these 3s are incredible. I work long hours at home shows and needed a light rugged great sounding Bluetooth with call tech. Perfect match with my iPhone 7plus!

    These are great, until they break

    I've been having issues with my beats2 and have gotten them replaced a couple of times at the apple store. The first ones I've had worked for a few months and then the remote/buttons came apart while I was on my run. I had it replaced and the second one lasted a few workouts before the remote broke again. The last time I went back to the apple store to get a replacement, I was upgraded to the beats3. I was very satisfied with it because the sound quality was way better. But this time, my beats3 only lasted a few weeks before it started having issues in syncing to my iphone and the remote did not work at all. I feel like I'm visiting the apple store way too often just for this one product. Like most of the reviews here, these beats earphones start breaking if you use them in sweaty workouts. I wish that wasn't the case since I really like the design of them. Since these earphones are meant to be used for workouts, I don't know why the durability is so bad. Apple should definitely revise them soon!

    By having these earphones for 1 day I went for a 10 km run(sweating a lot) they stopped working. Every time I put them on while song is playing it's pausing the song and then continuing it again. I went to the shop afterwards and they say "sorry we can't change them because it's BEATS" DO NOT BUY THIS EVER!!!!

    Great sound, but battery won't stay charged

    Great sound, and stay well placed when running. Didn't use/have that long, but battery no longer stays charged. Very disappointing!

    Best earphones I've owned.

    I tried to pairs of Jaybirds before I bought this pair. The second pair of Jaybirds lasted a month before the right speaker stopped working. These have better sound. They have better battery life and are more comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Would I buy again most definitely.

    Not Sweat Resistant

    Stopped working during my 2nd workout. White junk starting coming out of the piece. Garbage they are advertised as sweat resistant. Will not buy again.

    Great sports earbuds!

    I had a pair of these for about a month before I returned them. I had absolutely no complaints about these! The only reason I returned them is because I wanted to wait for the BeatsX. The battery life and sound on these was amazing and reading some other reviews saying these things aren't loud enough or they sound like a tin can are really not true! The sound on these things was amazing coming from earbuds that small, they had amazing bass and I was able to get around 3-4 days of use out of one charge. I really had no issues whatsoever with these but I just decided to wait for the BeatsX. If you are looking for earbuds for the gym (or even regular earbuds) these are great. I feel like all the reviews complaining that these are bad, are probably just people who don't like them just because they are "Apple."

    Poor product, do not buy!!

    I got these in December 2016, few weeks before Christmas and mostly use them when I am at the gym. Out of the box they claim to be sweat proof and have all the features that of the Powerbeats2 but man am I disappointed by them. In 2.5 months Apple has replaced them 5 times, yes you read that right. Out of no where they just die or stop charging. One of them had the mic and remote stop working, the forums are full of people complaining about the same issue. I am really surprised that Apple has produced something of such poor quality. I do not recommend them to anyone as even if you sweat lightly during workouts, these are bound to fail at some point in time.

    good sound but doesn't fit ear

    has a great sound but during runs and work outs always had to adjust the ear piece to stay in ear. i tried all of the ear buds and none of them would keep them in my ear during workouts. when they did stay in ear sound was awesome but i had returned them because would always come out during workout. i got the bose wireless and they are great

    Total waste of money

    I've been a loyal Beats customer for years. I'm an avid powerlifter. These lasted 30 days. I have been through 3 pairs in a year. Each time I was hopeful. I'm done with Beats. Period. The volume button cover fell off twice, wires and cover snapped off by the earpiece and now this pair just stopped working. And right before a workout! No! No! No!

    Sweatproof....you're joking right?!

    The concept is great and initially I was very impressed with the functionality, i.e. connected to the iPhone 7 instantly, the Siri function worked well, the headphones were secure during a run, etc. However, I soon understood the true meaning of the 'W1' chip compatibility....Works 1 time. As others have stated, once you use the headphones for their true purpose, the control button malfunctions; the volume button stops working then randomly adjusts the volume down by itself. Come on guys, are you seriously claiming these earphones are sweat proof...this is a premium product and both Apple and Beats should hang their heads in shame as the product testing must have been seriously flawed. Amazon should cease selling this product until the 'Premium' gang get their act together.
