    Disappointed

    I got the powerbeats 3 wireless in white and they wouldn't stop cutting out. I had to keep my phone on me or in my sports bra strap while working out so it wouldn't disconnect. I had it connected to my iPhone 6 and as soon as I put my phone down beside me when i was working out it stopped working. I even did some research after to see if I can reset the earphones, which I did and they still don't work. Everyone said how good they are so Im truly disappointed in the product because beats are usually so good.

    Not a good product

    I have tried just about every in-ear wireless headphones. These hurt your ears and take months to get used to. Yes, I tried every attachment and they all hurt because the size of the plastic before the audio piece is too big and presses into the side of the ear canal.
    The sound is good, not great and it picks up a lot of background noise. Save the money and try another product or stick with the wired ones. Sorry to report this product is not good!

    Save your money. Get the Airpods!

    Battery? Poor. Warranty Coverage? The worst. Ability to hold charge? Terrible! Sound quality? Average at best. My second pair of beats headphones and the brand is a hoax. My solo's and my power beats are useless and outperformed by the standard headphones that come with your iPhone. Don't bother.

    First time writing a review as a huge apple fanboy

    I hope people take this review seriously because i know very low ratings are looked at with hesitation for people perhaps just being bitter. I was pretty excited about the idea of this W1 chip and once I got my iPhone 7 i knew i needed to upgraded from my bose corded headphones to something wireless for the gym and my runs. My first beats stopped working completely after only 3 uses and I had to drive an hour to my nearest apple store to return them. Of course apple is great so no worries there, however they were out of stock and i had to have them shipped to me a week later. I have a constant issue of these connecting with my phone, or watch, or whichever it chooses to connect with first. Which ends up becoming a huge pain to disconnect from either device so I can get the correct one. The sound quality is not something to be impressed about at all either. There have been several times where I can't force the headphones to turn off after i'm done working out. The only button on the headphones stops working. I basically live in fear that these headphones are going to stop working on me at any point. I dont trust them, and to me that means a lot, and its the reason why I like apple in general because I expect it to be reliable and work when I need to. These headphones behave like they were made by microsoft, and are just fidgety and work differently every time. If i had another choice for a w1 sports headphone from bose or another company I would switch immediately.

    Perfection at its Finest

    Beginning to frequent the gym daily, I decided to ask for Bluetooth headphones for Christmas. I was between the Jaybird X3 and the Powerbeats3, but just something was drawing my attention to then Powerbeats3. I was not expecting to receive them, so when I opened them I hugged my parents. I opened them immediately and connected them to my Android. At first I turned the volume up on my phone and the sound was quiet. I was immediately disappointed, but then I turned up the volume on the remote to bring a full, clear, crisp sound. The Jaybirds had me nervous that they wouldn't fit or stay in my ears, but the clips can be adjusted easily for my ears. The style is present as many have already complimented me on my sharp headphones. I have had no connection issues or anything. Just wish a larger variety of eartips were within the box, so I have been checking Amazon to purchase different ones instead of the silicone tips. Overall, no complaints. People always look for the negatives of products, but the amount of negatives are minimal. I plan to use them everyday. I love them!

    Great sound but unresponsive Remotetalk audio cable

    The sound on these things is surprisingly good with excellent bass response and clear highs. That being said, the Remotetalk audio cable stopped functioning after a few uses. It is now not possible to control any iOS functions with the inline remote. To compound matters, the volume will intermittently increase or decrease and playback will unexpectedly pause or skip with no user interaction. Granted, I use these for working out and I'm frequently on my elliptical for an hour or more, but these things are supposed to be sweat resistant, if that's the cause of the issue. Updating the firmware or resetting the earphones doesn't help.

    Expected so much more

    These headphones are pretty terrible for being $200. As someone who loves Apple and my wired over-ear Beats, I was extremely disappointed at the quality of these wireless headphones. The sound was tinny, and they weren't noise cancelling at all. Plus they hurt my ears. They didn't move when doing cross training, but that is about the only thing these headphones have going for them. I returned and have a pair of $30 ones that work so much better.

    Almost 5 stars

    I was very sceptical about buying Beats after reading some bad reviews over the years, the delay on the Beats X which I was planning to buy made me choose these.

    I have a couple of minor regrets, but these are out weighed by the pros. Amazing battery life and connectivity are the main advantages, I am very surprised by the comfort. I usually find in ear headphones painful for any prolonged periods of wear. The weight of these is borne by the ear loop and the in ear part doesn't need forcing into your ear so I find I can wear them for hours at a time with no discomfort.

    Sound wise they are great, not £170 great, but these are a compromise for me, generally I wear my B&W Wireless P7s and nothing I have tried come close to matching these, but I don't want to wear these either in the office or when I am out for a walk.

    Recommended with a few reservations.

    Two tin cans and a string

    They paired with my iPhone 7, 15" MBBP 2016 and iPad Air 2 so well I was extreamly impressed. Then they were rather hard to put on which wasn't a deal breaker. However the sound quality is like two tin cans connected by a string which is a total deal breaker. The sound was very hollow and wouldn't allow any volume without distortion let alone you tried to play anything with some bass. This was not only with music but with several tv shows and movies I tried to play on them. Back to the Apple Store they go and I will plug in my Beats Tour 2's instead!

    Didn't stand up to a dog chewing

    Loved the easy connection and sound was acceptable. Dog got hold of the item and chewed on the earpiece on the controller side. $200 down the drain! Might as well let Rover complete the job and digest the whole product. Maybe they'll reappear in working condition! I liked the product well enough to order a replacement.

    Just brilliant

    Over the years I have used loads of different (but consistently useless) bluetooth headphones but these Powerbeats3 are just awesome and have transformed my running experience. They fit. They last for ages on one charge and they work with everything (well  stuff at least) at the touch of a button. It is like Tim Cook came out of the Apple gym and threw his headphones at his designers and yelled “How hard can it be to make some wireless headphones that actually work! I want something that lasts more than 3 minutes and doesn't involve a trillion button presses to pair with my iPhone!”. This W1 thing is brilliant. I’m going to have to start saving up for a pair of Solo3....

    Not worth it

    The Earphones gets disconnected ALL the time in calls (LTE, Skype, Hangouts, Bluejeans), as well as when listening to music, regardless of whether they are connected to Mac, PC or iPhone.

    No valen la pena:
    Se desconectan TODO el tiempo en las llamadas (LTE, Skype, Hangouts, Bluejeans) al igual cuando sólo se escucha música, sin importar si están conectados con Mac, PC o el iPhone.

    Sound is terrible!!

    I owned the Wireless Powerbeat2 and loved them so much, with amazing sound, and great fit for fitness. So i was hoping with the new W1 chip for easy connectivity it would mean the same earphones but with better technology, i was wrong.
    These new Powerbeats3 have lower quality sound, other then the ease of connecting across all my apple products quickly and double battery life, what i really just want above all is the same amazing sound i got from my previous Powerbeats2.

    Save your money and look for a pair of Powerbeats2 before all sold out because Apple discontinued them and they are amazing if you love fitness and good quality earbuds.

    Best workout headphones

    Finally! A pair of headphones that stay in place while I run. I've bought many headphones that kept falling off my ears. These not only stay in place but the battery life is just crazy! They sound amazing too. Highly recommend these headphones for runners or just everyday listeners of music.

    Not a good set for anyone with ears

    I didn't purchase PowerBeats3 at the Apple Store. I got mine at Costco and my friend got his pair at Apple Store. So we had 2 to compare against each other. And we found the same issue with both units. The sound coming out of them is very tinny. Before you start flaming me for "this are tiny earphones and not suppose to have large sound" please note that I am not expecting them to have the sound of Sony Studio wired headset. We were comparing to our old sets of plantronics BackBeat Fit, as well as to urBeats. PowerBeats3, both units, do not have nearly the same levels mid and barely any bass as either plantronics or urBeats. For the price they cost they should be better, but they are not. I would not recommend them to anyone. Yes, as usual, they are very comfortable to wear, much more then plantronics, for which I am giving them 1 start. But they are headphones. The quality of the sound is more important then the fit. So, we are returning both of our units because of the sound quality. Thank you

    Two sets failed on me

    As a distance runner, I've been on an never ending search for quality bluetooth headphones that would last more than a few months. I purchased the Powerbeats3 in early November hoping for the best. They worked great for about four weeks and then the audio started going in and out about five miles into my run. I disconnected them from the phone and paired them again on multiple occasions. The problem continued and was only getting worse, so I finally took them back to the Apple Store and was given a a brand new set. Unfortunately, the exact same thing happened with the second pair, only sooner. I'm fully convinced these earphones malfunction when exposed to moisture. I understand these buds are not waterproof, but they should be sweat resistant as advertised. They are sport earphones after all. I'm now back to to using the stock wired buds that come with the iPhone. The search continues.

    Depends on what you were expecting

    I bought my Powerbeats3, to replace my EarPods, after I had gone through numerous pairs over the years, with one earbud always deteriorating and becoming softer than the other. As someone who uses their headphones running I could not help but be amazed, the sound is louder than the EarPods and the clarity is nicer. There is beats that are audible (but I don't really care about that.) I will note though, that for older songs, like my beloved 80s albums, these earphones make the music sound like rubbish, because they highlight the new electronic and beats sections. In all honestly these Powerbeats are good if you are using them to listen to good new music for exercise, if you are wanting to just listen to older music these are probably not for you.

    Awesome!

    Love the headphones. Best wireless I have ever bought and I have bought ALOT. Worth the money. The case though is a JOKE! For the quality and price of anything from the Beats by Dre collection I would expect atleast a case that zipped close. So disappointed in that! Lose a star for that reason alone
