    Lasted for a total of four workouts - RETURNED

    This product did not live up to my expectations. After 4 workouts, sweat got into the control mechanism and render them useless. For a premium product that is claimed to be part of an "Active Collection" is pure misrepresentation. I am extremely disappointed that these earphones failed so easily. I've always lived by the moto that one gets what they pay for. I'm sincerely questioning that moto in regard to this product. Be aware, if you plan to sweat and wear this product at the same time, there may be issues. This product is being returned and I am very thankful I did not buy them second hand.

    I purchased the original ones in February 2017 and already had to return them due to power issues after 3 weeks. Got a replacement and within 2 weeks they wouldn't connect with the iwatch series 2 but pairs with the phone.
    totally fed up and looking at getting the bose' ones which I originally wanted in the first place.

    Foam tips = game changer

    -Battery life, you really do get the 12 hours as advertised
    -Bluetooth connectivity
    -Stay in place

    I would have given it 3.5 stars if I could. The biggest downside is the sound quality.

    In my opinion, silicon ear tips are lousy in general. They leak noise and do not project bass to the ears. You end up having to crank the volume up to hear the bass, which results in obnoxious noise leakage. The advantage of them are that they last virtually forever and are more sanitary to use than foam tips.

    I wanted to give these a fair shot, so I ordered aftermarket foam tips from Comply. These eat tips are a game changer. The bass really stands out, and you can really feel the thump in your ear. They are also more comfortable and leak far less noise. However, the downside is that they need to be periodically replaced and get dirty from sweat and earwax.

    Still, even with the foam tips, the mid- level sounds are still very lacking. You could probably play with the equalizer to compensate, but I didn't bother.

    I still like the Powerbeats 3's. The pros outweigh the cons for me.

    Overall, I'm satisfied. Sound is great. Battery isn't going a full 12 hours; more like 11. It's long enough for my purposes so I'm okay with that. The case it comes with is terrible...it's basically a silicone pouch opened on one end. Considering how much I paid, I expected much more.

    Not sweat resistant

    The powerbeats3 are not sweat resistant. I have them already replaced THREE times. They simply stop functioning properly.
    Sound is good, fit is perfect and W1 works as advertised.

    Pretty dang good

    I wanted to purchase another set of beats products for whenever I work out, since my studios and solos are used for other purposes. I purchased the Ep's, which turned out to be garbage. I purchased my powerbeats 3, and was amazed. The sound quality was great, and the comfort of them was even better. Unlike other earphones, the design of these ensures they are snug in your ear without any discomfort.

    Awful Product!

    I bought 2 pair of powerbeats 2 in September. Both paired kept repeatedly breaking within in the first few months. Although the sound quality was great, the overall durability was terrible. I workout everyday and sweat a lot. These absolutely cannot withstand any sort or moisture as they claim to.
    After sending my beats back and forth to apple to be replaced by a refurbished pair, they finally decided to send me a brand new pair of beats 3. Mind you I threw away one pair of my beats because I was sick of sending them back and forth. Anyway, I was very excited to be sent a brand new pair of the newer version assuming they would be the same as the beats 2 but better quality. I was wrong. They overall quality is not as good and the sound quality is terrible and very tinny. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THESE!

    Total cheap junk

    I thought the beats 2 wireless earbuds were bad, I was wrong, beats 3 are even worse. Made of cheap junk. Not sweat proof. Went through 4 beats 2 pairs in a year, and the horribly painful return policy of apple. Got to trade up to the beats 3 from the last faulty pair of the 2's, that was less than a month ago. What a shock, these stopped charging and working. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THESE PIECE OF JUNK EARBUDS!

    apparently dre and lebron don't sweat

    hey, its 2017, not 1795. even thomas edison could devise sweat proof ear products!

    if you're a sweater, stay away from the PB3 ... they WILL short out ... eventually.

    Power beats 3 beat all.

    I had a set of power beats wired which i loved to listen to. Untill the cable ripped due to my own fault while wearing at work. Any how, i bought several sets of ear buds and none came even close to the comfort, sound and quality of my old beats so i bought a pair of jaybird freedom buds to see how they worked. Well of course i longed for my old beats once again. So i returned the jaybirds and bought some power beats and once again im one happy camper! Beats above all when it comes to wireless buds.

    Beats powerbeats3 review

    Let me start by saying the beats powerbeats 3 are some of the worst headphones I've ever had. These were my second pair of headphones in 2 weeks and after using them for a week i returned for a 3rd set but jaybirds. First off for all the hype these headphones had inferior sound quality and after long hours wearing them the round part behind the bud hurt my ears. The only positive thing i have to say about these is the battery life. Overall i wouldn't recommend these to anyone the jaybird x3s are way better and are lots cheaper.

    Poor quality. Nice when they work

    I bought a pair then had to exchange them bc there was no bass with them. My second pair worked great and sounded great....for 2 weeks. Then they lost their bass as well. Not sure why this is a problem. They are nice headphones when they work, but it seems like I'm not the only one who had issues with their functionality. Seeing that two pairs broke, I will go with another company.

    Love them, hope for improvements

    I am a huge Powerbeats fan. I have used both wired and wireless powerbeats for many years. I am now on my 2nd pair of Powerbeats3. I love them because their sound is great, both music AND phone and that is hard to find, believe me, i have tried many. If/when Apple gets their issues fixed with reliabilityon the battery (mine, like many, stopped charging and Apple replaced) these will be the absolute best on the market, and worth their high price tag. By the way, this is coming from an Android user who still prefers the Beats!

    no power

    I bought the earphones to workout. The sound was great even though no noise cancellation. They were comfortable and did not fall out on runs. Super light weight. Very ideal to workout with!!!
    HOWEVER, for the money that these cost I would expect them to work. After 6 days of utilizing they would not power on. For 5 hours I tried to research and reset using the multi function button and hit volume button down for 8 sec. then tried for 2 min then tried 8 sec on the vol up. Took them to the apple genius bar and they could not help with out giving them $ for a replacement. Returned to Amazon for a full refund. Apple please fix this problem. If you look on line there is a whole slew of complaints on battery retention and not powering on. Otherwise these would be Great for the gym.

    Terrible! Do not buy it!

    I regret so much to have bought this product. It stoped worked after being used a few times. First the remote control stoped working. Now the on/off button stoped working. Apparently, the phones are not sweat proof. Nonetheless, the propaganda shows Lebron sweating a lot while using this thing. I bet that Lebron's phones stopped working right before the end of the filming. In short, it is terrible. Do not buy it. Beats belongs to Apple or is somehow connected to Apple. I do not know. The fact is that the performance of Beats products can not be compared to the performance expected from an Apple product. Beats is going to compromise Apple's reputation before the consumers. At least has compromised with me.

    Beware, purchased 2 pair (Power Beats 3) but one continuously turns itself off. I love them when they work but the product may be flawed in reference to performance.

    Total trash....on my third pair in a month. Went for one run and had the same problems as everyone else who works out with them. The most annoying part is having to ship away and wait for a new pair. Seriously Apple? Why not allow us to simply return them to our local store with proof of purchase? Unacceptable.

    Do yourself a favor and skip these

    I've had the Powerbeats 3 for two weeks when they suddenly started disconnecting. Holding the power button causes the led indicator to blink three times and re-synchronizing is impossible unless I either wait 10 minutes, or factory reset the Powerbeats. Time between disconnecting varied between 1 minute and half an hour, while the battery was at 83% according to my iPhone. Currently I'm waiting until I receive a replacement, but I wish I've read the reviews before ordering these.

    Powerbeats 3

    To be fair, it does say the headphones are WATER RESISTANT but not WATER PROOF.
