    randomly power off

    • Written by Emma M

    EVEN FRESH OUT OF THE BOX They had trouble syncing to my phone, I had to constantly update my phone and reset the beats. I am in no means a heavy user I only used them a handful of times a month. at 15 months they completely will not power up. I've contacted the apple store three times and each time they will trouble shoot them and they will work for about a week and then return to not working. I will now have to pay to repair the product Im highly disappointed

    Not Sustainable...Broken Twice in A Year

    • Written by Jenna M

    When my Beat headphones are working, I love them. However that isn't the case. The first issue I had was a few months in where they stopped taking a charge. I received my second pair a few months ago and now these take a charge but the battery life went from days to <8 minutes. Do not recommend.

    Great base, but only buy with an extended warranty as break via sweat

    • Written by Philip B from clovelly

    3 pairs down now. Thinking of another pair as they have great bass, fit my ears well, the linking wire makes safe for cycling (vs individual buds).
    BUT they die from the sweat. I use cycling every day, latest pair lasted a year and 3 days. Thankfully i paid for an extended 'replacement' warranty at JB Hifi so got the money back. Will probably buy another pair....but with the same extended warranty!
    Also if they break under 1 year is a repair warranty from Apple which is more hassle

    Poor Sound Quality

    • Written by Michael A

    I own the original power beats and after 4 years the cover for the microphone and volume buttons fell off. Went and bought the power beats 3 today thinking i am going to get the same great quality... WRONG!! Cheaply made. The sound quality is absolutely terrible compared to the originals. No bass, all treble. Had to read reviews just to make sure i didn't have a defective pair. expected so much more.

    Piece of Junk. Ear Hook Broke plus more

    • Written by Andrew W from Riverside

    I have been using this product for 1 year. Sounds great, but I am not happy with the built quality of the product as in its ear hook broken from its base. No drop damage or anything. The hook just broke right off.

    Prior, I have had to send this in under warranty exchange twice due to sweat issues and just not connecting or turning on.

    I had the first generation beats and they lasted well over 3 years until they finally stopped working. But the new build quality is just terrible and i dont recommend it.

    Don't Buy it

    • Written by Ravisaiteja C from Irvine

    Mic stopped working after 16 months and support recommended repair which is about 75$. It's not worth spending that much on this bad ear phones.

    Bad Christmas present

    • Written by Joe B

    My Daughter bought me a pair for Christmas and they stopped working on February 21. Best buy wouldn't take them back. Told me I have to contact the company. What a Christmas present.

    Junk

    • Written by David W

    After 4 sets of these, I have finally given up. They work great for periods of not less than one day and not more than 3 months. They simply are not reliable. Buy 8 sets of anything else for the same amount of money.

    PowerBeats3

    • Written by Tiara S

    I've been a Beats owner for a long time and I recently bought the PowereBeats3 wireless and I must say, I am disappointed with the sound. The sound in these is very low in caparison to the other models. I've tried using different size earbuds to see if that would work but that didn't do the trick either. I guess if you are someone who primarily uses them for the gym, or in smaller settings, these would be ideal, but for every day traveling, commuting etc. these are a no for me. The noise cancellation in them aren't the best either, ( I can hear everything around me, cars, trains, people, etc.). The earphones that still require a wire input are way better in my opinion.

    Great wireless earphones

    • Written by Kevin N from Castleknock

    I'd have these since December 2016 and they've been excellent. I wear them on my 18km (each way) commute and I've experience no issues with sweat or durability. I live in Ireland so maybe the colder climate helps.

    Battery life is excellent however the microphone is inline with the earphones so you hear yourself when using the mic for Siri (but not for calls) which is annoying. I rarely use the mic so this isn't a concern for me.

    BAD! Will break in 3-4 Months! DO NOT BUY!

    • Written by Vlad N from Brooklyn

    Bought these a while ago and had them replaced every 6 months or so until apple refused to replace them. After you pay $200 you expect the thing to last.
    Sounds and fits great, but will stop working in months (either a hook will come off or an earbud will fall out, whatever). Complete waste!

    DO NOT BUY!

    Lasts 2-3 months

    • Written by Vlad N

    Pros: 1. Convenient. Fits perfectly 2. Sound is pretty good. 3. Battery life is about 6-10 hours (at least on my headphones). Cons: Had them replaced 3 times until Apple refused to replace them. Having paid $200 I was expecting the thing to last. Now I can't enjoy it anymore. Expect to throw it away in 2-3 months or so. And as I can tell, I'm not the only one with the same problem here.

    “Accidental Damage” Disappointment

    • Written by Matt S from Brookpark

    Do not buy these earbuds! I received a pair for Christmas and after 2 months of use, the earbud detached from the earpiece. No dropping or misuse on my part. I for sure thought they would be replaced/repaired after I sent them into apple, but I was told it was accidental and not under warranty. What a joke! Completely disappointed with the product, repair process and resolution. Save your money and stay away from these!

    Awesome sound. Quick and easy to charge. Indicator light is great to let me know when to recharge. Connects seamlessly with BlueTooth.

    Love

    • Written by Maddy F

    I originally bought these headphones because wires do not work well for me at the gym. I have had these headphones for over a year and I still love them. They are perfect for running and lifting at the gym or even just walking around. I have had no problems with the quality, no wear and tear. The one downside I would say is the rubber pieces of the earphones do fall off sometimes. Either way I would highly recommend these headphones to anyone looking for something wireless

    Great headphones

    • Written by Eugene K

    Been using them for a year both in the gym and on morning runs. The battery is great. Easily connects to iphone. Only issue i have is rubber tips a bit loose. They come off sometimes when taking from pocket and can be lost.

    PLEASE DO NOT BUY

    • Written by Andrew H

    They are advertised as "sweat resistant' but however when coming into contact with sweat, they turn off automatically for about 8 hours. They also turn off for 12 hours if they come into contact with cold weather <38 degrees even though in the gallery, it shows someone who snowboards wearing powerbeats. They connect great because of the apple ecosystem but overall they suck. Also they can be "bricked" if they come into contact with a liquid for a prolonged amount of time. If I could trade these for airpods I would in a heartbeat. I have powerbeats 3 in a gold color btw if you're wondering

    Horrible Product

    • Written by Dave L

    Horrible product. Does not work in the cold (all my other headphones work). Lacks durability, the ear ring broke off and now is super glued back together. Mediocre sound quality. Do yourself a favor and buy Bose. Also notice how these headphones have a 1.5 star avg review and all the 5 star review are pushed to the top.
