    Worst product

    I've returned 3 paired. They are worst and most expensive headphones I have ever owned. Here's what's wrong: The batteries will sometimes die after 10 minutes of use. The battery percentage is not at all accurate (going from 91%-0% in 10 minutes). I've noticed these problems seem to happen when I turn off the headphone and then later turn them on, In any case, my 3-year oly jaybird freedom headphone work so much better even on a 5 hour battery life... at least I got that

    Waste of Money!

    I have had my Powerbeats 3 for three months and just starting running seriously again and these headphones are HORRIBLE! I have had numerous issues with them automatically disconnecting, none of the controls work once I start running, volume will automatically go up and down all by itself. How can Apple seriously charge this much for a earphone that has so many flaws. I have read numerous reviews with the same issues. How can Apple say that this earphone is sweatproof and for working out. I am an Apple lover, but this product should not be in the Apple family. IT IS HORRIBLE!

    -5 Stars Dislike

    I bought two pairs! One for me and one for my wife. I got the red and black, the wife got the blue and black. These headphones are amazing when they work! They are comfortable, literally 12 hours of battery life with continuous use on high sound volume. The mic works wonderfully actually picks up sound better than the iPhone. Unfortunately After 4 weeks my wife's headphones would no longer charge, power on, etc. Dead in the water. Only a few flashing lights telling you the battery was dead. No amount of resetting, troubleshooting, charging, etc. would fix this issue. I actually spent about 45 minutes reading other customer reviews on apple’s website, on Amazon, etc. HUNDREDS of people are experiencing the EXACT same issue! Many of them mention they are on their 4th replacement in a 4 month period, 2 replacements in a 2 month period, etc. From what I’m seeing a large percentage of customers are only getting a 4 week life span with this product. APPLE there needs to be a recall and a design fix! If I replace it 7 times in my 12 month warranty that would cost you guys more money than just actually improving the design and fixing this issue! There is obviously something that is NOT RIGHT! I LOVE APPLE I am absolutely an APPLE FANBOY. Right now I disappointed though. This makes me sad that when the replacement comes I should only expect 4 weeks before it quits working then have to go another 10 days for replacement! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE APPLE, I LOVE YOU GUYS, COME ON NOW!!!??

    Love the sound -- but...

    The sound quality is really, really good with these wireless earphones. I listen to books as I move about, drive, work out at the gym, etc. I was looking for something that would stay in my ears while moving and these did the trick. Liked them so much I bought a pair as a Christmas gift for someone, But I have two issues: One, the rubber ear tips fall out frequently and I'm always trying to find my replacements. (The relative I gifted these to also finds lost ear pads to be a problem.) Second, one of the ear tips broke -- just fell apart from all the use. Now I have to find new wireless earphones. These are very delicate. But I LOVED the sound, while it lasted.

    A lot of issues if you workout/sweat

    I've had my powerbeats3 for about a month now and over the past week I've noticed when working out (sweating), the volume button stops working, the power button stops working and sound/volume from my phone to my headphones goes up and down on its own. No idea why this is but after reading several reviews recently, I can see it happens to other people as well. While the sound quality is great, this completely ruins the mood for a workout.

    Anyone have a remedy or useful information that would help me with this issue?

    Thanks.

    Bad quality

    Have now gone through my second pair. They stop working after 15 minutes of workout. Then won't work for at least 24 hours. The white light blinks and then they go kaput. See other reviews--same issue. Very disappointing. Waste of $200.

    Worst headphones I've ever owned... Gas station headphones last longer

    I had one pair that one day just turned off, fully charged and never turned on again. Because I had never had a problem with beats I decided to go for a second pair, little did I know how bad these beats are... I guess no one checked if they were actually sweat resistant, because the second pair just did the same exact thing. Oh yeah neither lasted more than one month... thats $500 down the tube. Terrible, will never use beats again.

    Batteries not charging

    I have bought Powerbeats 3 before 4 months & I had no issues, but suddenly the battery isn't charging. I want to change the batteries or if the piece is defective than want to get the same replace. Please guide me on either of the solutions.

    Awesome Sound

    These have been the best earphones to date. When I first tried them out they didn't really have a good sound. I messed with my cell phone EQ. I found that my Samsung had a way to personalize (adjust) my EQ according to my hearing. After I did that the sound was amazing. It has a good bass sound and noise reduction. If your beats don't have a good sound you might want to mess with your device, it's probably your EQ that needs to be tweaked.

    Only Lasted 3 weeks used maybe 10 times.

    I would expect better quality and paying 200.00 at the Apple Store instead of Best Buy I might hav better luck.my first 3 pair of beats 2 lasted 6 months or less, the last pair from Apple Store almost made it 2 years and they died when I needed them most so angry. I buy the 3s at Apple Store. The sound quality not as good as the 2. Made of plastic and now less than 3 weeks old, again do not work. I give up on beats. I am going to try another brand. Maybe when the quality returns and I see more positive reviews than negative I will give them a try. Apple you need to get it together if!!waste of time to keep going back to the store!!

    Can't recommend lowly enough.

    Absolute dog toffee. After little use stopped working after 17 months (will not turn on / charge). Clearly a faulty product, based on other reviews, yet apple insist on paying £106 to look at them. No confidence that the same won't happen again. After a few years will quickly become the world's most expensive earphones. Avoid.

    12 hours? Fail

    DO NOT BUY THIS BEATS

    I can't belive that a pair of expensive earphones stoped working after just 2 weeks of using it. I just literally throwed away my money! And this is not the first time I have this kind of problem with a Beat earphone. I won't ever buy one again.

    Powerbeats

    I first bought the powerbeats 2 and they were amazing, ran and played basketball with them all the time with no issues. Then one day they just stopped playing music. I read some reviews and saw that a lot of ppl said sweat could cause damage to the earbuds. So thinking it was my fault i bought a second pair, and the section of the earpiece that physically goes into your ear broke while i was taking the headphones off one month after i'd had them. Needless to say I don't recommend these. Way too fragile.

    Not sweat proof - do not buy

    After 30 minutes doing cardio the earphones would shut off and cannot restart - just flashes white 3 times and then turn off. Cannot pair and cannot use until a few hours later maybe the sweat dries out. NOT appropriate for gym if you're planning to sweat.

    My $20 pair of wireless earphones went through over 12 months cardio without a hitch and thought I'd treat myself to a nice set of earphones. These started having trouble in just over 2 months and now too late for return - what a waste of money.

    Great headphones - Until the stop working!!!!! Don't buy!

    Bought the Powerbeats2 Wireless Earphones and loved them. Great sound and compatible with the iPhone. But after approx 2 months I started to have trouble charging the headphones and after 4 months they were dead! Not what I expected form $200 headphones.

    But I did really like them, so once they released Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones, I decided to give them a new chance. Same thing, fantastic headphones...UNTIL THEY STOPPED WORKING...AGAIN!!!! I am so disappointed and upset the quality is this low. Can't really recommend anyone to invest so much money on headphones that only work up to 2 months!

    Shame on you Apple having this low quality for sale. Screwing people over!

    Gone in 2 weeks

    Was extremely excited to get the powerbeats 3, as this is the first wireless earphone i have owned. Worked great in the first week, and then in the second week the power button stopped working, as well as the inline controls, the songs were pausing, volume was increasing and decreasing on its own, most annoying feeling when you are in an intense workout and this expensive piece of equipment just dies on you. Also noted there is a big gap on the inline controls were sweat can get in easily. Also excessive noise pollution can be heard whilst music is playing and trust me i tried all types of eartips for the seal.
