    Absolute Garbage!

    Bought these in June 2017. By the mid December I was calling for the third time to have them replaced. They are not sweat resistant as they claim. Once the volume cotrol gets a little sweat on it, they will shut down. You then have to wait for it to dry out before it will reconnect, if it will reconnect. This is a known problem with the product and Apple will not recall them and fix the issue. They just send you more. Which is fine for some I guess but who wants to pay this amount of money and know that after the year warranty is over, their product WILL quit working. I upgraded to Bose and they still made me pay the difference between the two. One would think with all the issues, they would have exchanged them even swap. Will never purchase another Apple product of this is any indication of their quality control now.

    They have some work to do...

    In less than 4 months, I am sending in my 2nd pair for repair. When sweat gets in the controller, it stops working and you will get random volume up/down, random siri, and they won't even turn off! I was really expecting a lot more for the money. These are not ready to be a consumer product, there are some serious design flaws. On the bright side, they sound good while they work and battery life is truly outstanding. I'm buying something else to work out in.

    Apple should acknowledge that those phone have a project defect

    I've made a review before giving powerbeats 3 a 5 star rating. I've should had waited more. I use them to go to gym, and this week, after just 4 weeks of use, my pair failed on me. Took it to apple, and they are replacing it. But after reading all complaints and learning that i will probably have trouble again in near future, i think apple should acknowledge a failed product project and do a recall on all of them!

    poor quality

    On to my fifth set. Use them daily in the gym and i think Apple should stop advertising these as being sweat proof as they clearly are not. To be fair to apple, they replace them very quickly. But they keep breaking over and over again. Would accept a refund and move on if it was an option. I have had the following faults, not turning on, not charging, volume control not working, play/pause not working. So pretty much everything that can break, has broken at some point

    Wireless beats headphone

    These wireless headphones are amazing. The sound quality is great. They fit perfect and doesn’t dangle around when you’re going to a run or exercising.

    Ear hook broke

    They worked well for a while, until one of the ear hooks broke off. I sent it to Apple for repairs and the broken hook was NOT covered under the warranty and I would have spent $99+ just to get the simple hook repaired. ��

    third pair that has broken down

    Bought about 6 months ago. Now my third pair has broken down. I strongly recommend to avoid buying these headphones. Endless trouble.

    Cheap Cheap Cheap

    This is my second pair - and my last. Both pairs died pretty soon after I worked out with them. Just a little sweat did the trick. These are NOT sweat resistant! Cheap and overpriced. You'd do better buying from Kicker or another competitor.

    Went through 5 pairs in less than a year

    As these were my first pair of wireless headphones I was excited to get a quality pair of headphones. My first pair lasted for a while, then during a run they decided to turn off on their own. I was unable to use them whatsoever. So I got them replaced with Apple and the next pair worked for a month and the same issue happened and had to get them replaced again. I was already frustrated at this point so figured I was just getting faulty pairs until the next pair worked for only 3 days at most. Then I got a 4th and those lasted a week. Finally I got another pair and sold them. They claim to be sweat resistant but that is far from the truth. I felt like they weren't going to work for during or after any workout or run. I will never buy Beats headphones again. If you want a good pair of headphones buy some Jaybirds. I was able to run a marathon in them and had no issues.

    Broken Ear Hook - Overpriced Trash

    I have this Powerbeats 3 now since a Year and after the Day the Warranty expire my right ear hook was broken after i grab them out of the case. The Quality of the sound was amazing, the design is okay, but the hole Package ist overpriced and isn´t worth.

    I just bought it

    I read all the reviews and there are a lot of people saying this a great item and there is another party saying its a trash for a lot of money. And I dunno my guts says I choose this. There are a lot of problems they say about not sweat resistant and all but seems fine for me.. and the main thing is its voice quality. it really has ambient noise cancelling even with normal volume voice setting u still can't get any other sound around. And the bass wasn't enough and all u need to do is have a great quality song from spotty or Apple Music and have an equalizer setting. then its like a perfect sound quality.

    Great fit for workouts, good sound & battery life // unreliable electronics

    These would be my favorite headphones for sports. Battery life is amazing, sound and fit are really good, so much potential.

    Unfortunately, the electronics are unreliable. I am experiencing the same problems many other customers are facing: Headphones are randomly skipping and pausing songs, turning the volume up and down, they have become out of control and unusuable.

    The headphones havent been used in tough conditions. Normal climate, no heavy rain, just indoor training and outdoor runs.

    Its a design flaw. And escpecially since this is the 3rd iteration of the powerbeats, I cannot understand that beats hasnt fixed this problem.

    Poor Quality

    Don't waste your money! Had 2 pairs of these in one year and both broke the same way. Problem is the volume control switch falls apart. And they weren't overused either, unless you call using them for 3 hours a week overuse. For the price of these they should be made more durable. Apple offered to fix my second pair for $99. No thanks--I'm going to use that to buy a different brand of wireless earbuds.

    3 pairs down, no more to go

    I have had the most patience with these headphones because they indeed have great quality sound, when they work. I bought my first set of powerbeats in 2015, loved them. The remote panel broke after 3 months of use and I thought just maybe it was me working out to hard with them or something. So I ship in and pay the $99 to have them repaired under warranty. Get them back, good as new. Two months later breaks again. Another month later I lose all functionality and can’t even wear the headphones because they don’t even turn on. So my kind wife for Christmas buys me another pair at full price ($150). This pair was the sweet black ones Lebron James wears in the commercials (so they got to be good right?). Remote panel breaks within 4 months. Functionality lost within 6 months. Send these ones in and pay $99 to have them fixed. 1 month later breaks again, won’t charge, can’t maintain a charge and I’m out of headphones (and money) at this point. Call Apple, and pretty much the warranty is only applicable when it is a non-cosmetic issue. But what about when the product is poorly and cheaply made? Amazon has Bluetooth wireless ear buds for $15! And they work! Don’t waste your money here. I wonder if Lebron James gets this treatment? I can imagine Lebron calling Apple support.. Yes sir, Mr. James Sir we are sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused you, we will overnight you a new pair to your locker room for your game in Toronto! 3 pairs down, no more to go.

    I would give less than one star if possible. Apple customer service fails

    If these headphones are aimed at active people you would think they could handle the “rigors” of sitting in front of a computer at work. This is the only time I used them. The right ear loop came off after less than one year. This is not an unknown issue with this product, there are videos online outlining the repairs. Now Apple wants another $100 to “fix” a design flaw. I’m starting to reconsider my Apple loyalty if they can’t stand behind a product they produce.

    Lasted 1 Month

    Bought these for when I ride my bike trainer indoors. I sweat a lot and these are touted as "sport" headphones. This product is definitely not worth it for the price. If you train hard these don't waste your money. Sunday enthusiasts, these are for you.

    Not as expected

    These earphones did well for the first couple of months until suddenly wouldn't turn on. I have been dealing with 3 white light flashes in a row then staying off. I have done everything from Trying the reset procedure listed by beats help team. And have looked everywhere for any way of fixing these without sending in to apple and making a huge deal about the poor quality. After this I will permanently be switching to a different brand for all my earphone and headphone needs.
