    Stopped working for no apparent reason

    Got these for Christmas and worked great for about three months or so. I went to use them yesterday, but they will not turn on. I know it wasn't a battery life issue because they had been charging the day before. However, they will not turn on. For the price of these headphones, I am very disappointed. I only used them while working out or walking around campus at college, so it's not like I was severely overusing them. Waste of money, buy a different brand if you can.

    Not sweat resistant

    I've returned them in one month, three times. They continue to have the same issues, loss of mic, volume controls, not charging/turning off, now that the 30 day warranty from best buy is over, I have to ship them out for repair. I originally purchased powerbeats 2 and ended up returning those twice before switching to the powerbeats 3. I would use them daily in the gym and at work in my office. For a product that is $199, I wish the quality would agree to the price.

    great sound bad design

    I have purchase 2 pairs and both pair are too delicate and have broken at the ear piece, snapped right off. I love the sound and other parts of the design that are comfortable to wear when working out but if i spend over $100 on a pair of headphones, i expect they will not break as easy as they do. I have gone to very cheap pairs but the quality is bad but no issues with them breaking.

    3 pairs in 3 weeks Beats Solo 3

    I usually don't take time out to write reviews but after paying $300 for these heads phones and needing to replaced them twice after two weeks I felt the need to. I only use the headphones to work out at the gym and the first pair lasted 10 days. The headphones died in the middle of my workout and when I went home to charge them I realized they would not charge. The second of 5 lights blinked but it did not go beyond that, no matter how long I left them plugged in. I tried multiple cords to rule out a bad cable. I had them replaced and the second pair lasted exactly 7 days. This time the headphones actually worked but the lights would not come on. I had to idea by looking at them if they were on or not, and when I charged them none of the lights came on to show that they were charging. I'm on my third pair in 3 weeks and hopefully I'll have better luck with these.

    Are not sweat proof

    Got these as I am a professional athlete and train 15 hour a week for an endurance sport. After a week of use the volume started to turn its self down to mute. Sound quality was good and the over ear fitting was great but they do not work. Waste of money.

    They worked well for 30 days or less then.

    I bought them month ago. I run a lot I'm training to run half marathons and maybe move up to a full marathon come early next year. I never wanted to spend 200 on some headphones for me that's like no! So I did when I bought the iphone 7 so I ran my second half marathon in march 4 they did great. This last week the headphone would just turn themselves of in the middle of 5 mile run lets say I only made it 2 miles in the run they would turn off. So I was irritated. Look the sound quality is great the way it connects to the phone is great but this constant turning off is not working for me. I researched on the internet and it seems it happens a lot. I download the app for beats updater I did a reset and nothing worked. I spoke to costumer service person they told me if I had done the two things I just told you about then they would have to send me a replacement. I said thats fine can I please walk into an apple store and do that he said no. You have to understand I have my 3rd half marathon this weeked on april 2 and I'm screwed

    Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones - Black

    My Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones - Black is just four months of using it, I faced the problems that when sweat starts, it's stops and requires to charge again overnight, and couldn't turn on until sweats dry!! I did observed that during operation without sweating it's perfectly working. so much Frustrated.

    they very disappointing

    I bought these back in February, for my half marathon next month. the first issue i encountered was about a week after buying them, while running they started to change the volume on their own, and then they died on me with 80% battery left. Two days after this incident they were at 70% AND WOULDNT TURN ON UNTIL i put them back on a power source, ever since then they werent holding a very long charge, id leave them on the charger all night and only get at most 45 mins of battery life, when they said that they were at 90% or more. Today, i am returning them, because they wont turn on at all, just a white light will flash three times and then nothing, no matter how long i leave them on the charger. I AM EXTREMELY UPSET and will NEVER recommend them to my fellow runners or gym buddies.

    TERRIBLE QUALITY OVERALL

    Its appalling they sell these for 200 dollars, advertise them as active and for the gym yet after some hard, sweaty workouts they are completely ruined!

    My Powerbeats 2 broke however after 2 months and those were not used in the gym

    So, 2 sets of powerbeats 2 from best buy broken, then they were discontinued and i had to pay the diff to get a pair of powerbeats 3.. My powerbeats 3 BROKEN in less than 30 days...

    I'm completely done with them, and its a shame because they do sound great... not worth the headache or money

    Not Great For Workouts

    I honestly regret and don't regret the headphones. Let me explain why, if you are a sports person or someone that loves excercising, do not get this headphone. When I bought the Powerbeats 3, the sound quality and bass is great don't get me wrong, I had to get 4 warranty exchanges within 4 months. Although it is sweat or water resistant, it's bullshit. My first warranty exchange went smooth but it started shutting off even though it's fully charged. I went back and my second warranty exchange sucked after a workout because my volume and mic buttons kept spazzing and killed my mood at the gym. My third warranty exchange was because it wouldn't charge after another workout. These were not bad for working out AT ALL. I questioned why I spent $200 thinking since it's branded by apple, it would be great. The quality is great for normal activity use or outside. The bass and charge is wonderful, but only use it for regular use like traveling or something.

    Don't waste your money!

    I have had these head phones for 2-3 weeks and the battery is shot! That is not acceptable for $150-200 headphones. If anyone has suggestions on good workout head/ear phones please let me know!

    Excellend sound, very poor quality of construction

    As many others I've had my Powerbeats3 broken without any advice after 4 weeks, get the constant red light when trying to charge it and got the advice from support that I need to replace them....

    But what will happen when they will broke again after the warranty ??

    Very bad deal.

    Stop working for no reason

    I had powerbeats 2 before, and I really don't know what happened to it. It couldn't turn on and charge. Now, it happened again to my new powerbeats ! So I want to Warn the ones who wants to get them. PLEASE PURCHASE THE APPLE CARE. Otherwise you will spend 100 dollars more to get it fixed.

    Short Lived

    When I first got the power beats 3 I absolutely loved them. Especially coming from the awful standard apple ear phones you get with an iphone. However they ended up being a huge waste of money. I got them around Christmas time and already after a month of use, some how, some way, one of the ear hook things fell completely off. I have no clue how it fell off, especially because I am not rough with my things but it was very disappointing. It doesn't stop there though. I learned to live with only one hook, and could still get great workouts with out them falling out. Then....of course...... The 12 hour charge fell dramatically, and for some reason the button that connects the head phones via bluetooth stopped working and only allows to turn on the head phones. Can't connect them or turn them off. Sooooo they are worthless and cannot be used. I am a college student who works out 7 days a week, so this not only is detrimental in terms of losing $200 that I cant just replace but I am also out of music until I figure out what to do. Thank You Apple for taking more of the money I don't have.

    Apparent waste of money

    I bought my Powerbeats with the sole purpose of using them to workout, and now about 5 weeks later, they no longer work, turn on or even charge! I take care of them, clean them once a week, and this still happens?! when they worked they were great, but for the price paid, not worth it!

    7th times the charm?

    I got the original PB wireless as a gift 2 years ago and have since been through 2 PB'1, 4 PB2's, and am awaiting my second pair or PB3's. To apples credit, their customer service is always friendly and promptly replaces the headphones each time I have called in with the issue, but it amazes me that a company that produces mostly great products would sell such a piece of junk. I've read reviews saying sweating will cause them to short circuit...aren't these intended work exercising?? I can't imagine all the athletes who are in their commercials aren't sweating during their workouts with these dumb things in.

    Died after 3 months

    Got these in early January. As of yesterday morning (3 months in), they no longer charge or turn on. For the price tag this is pretty ridiculous.

    TERRIBLE PRODUCT. DO NOT BUY.

    Stopped working after the second week of use. Volume would randomly turn itself all the way down for the first two weeks and then it stopped working altogether. Will show the red light when on the charger but no matter what I do they will not come back on.

    Does anyone know of a pair of headphones that are actually sweat proof. This is my 5th pair in the last few years.

    Stopped working after 15 days

    I love to run and for the longest time I used to the headphone with the cord. When suggested I buy the powerbeats3 I didn't really want to spend the money. Well I finally caved and bought them. When I first started using them they were AWESOME! I was questioning why I hadn't bought them sooner. Well I went to the gym tonight. They worked fine, turned them off when I was done, came home to charge them...... the power/charging light won't even come on nor will they even turn on. They weren't completely dead either.
    So needless to say I'm extremely irritated that I've only had my powerbeats a total of 15 days and they ALREADY STOPPED WORKING.
    I bought them at Best Buy, so I hope Apple will still honor the warranty, otherwise I'm out $200!!!!
    Not worth buying if they are going to continue to stop working.

    VERY DISAPPOINTING

    From an apple supported brand you would expect a lot more in terms of quality BUT NOT THIS TIME... to me the power beats are a great failure and a very expensive one. Experiencing the same problems as all other reviews here. I am tired of spending additional time going to the service center to tell the same story again and again to get a replacement.
