    These reviews are accurate

    Every negative thing these fine people are saying is 100% accurate.
    I'm on my third pair, and I think the longest use I've gotten out of any was one month.
    It seems the claims that they are not sweat resistant is spot on. Mine chronically cut out
    midway through a run, and never charge again. Pure junk. Pure time waste. Done

    Garbage Buds

    Stay away from this model....... !!!!!!
    I have had problems and issues with mine since day one.
    First, it was not charging. got it successfully repaired.
    Now, it shuts down as and when it pleases. It is bloody annoying when you are running and suddenly the music stops.... such a turn off..... !!!!
    Don't know whether to go and get it looked at and repaired or just taking the hammer and smashing it to smithereens..
    It was not designed to be used during work outs, the circuits and connections can't take the sweat.
    Whoever is thinking about getting these, please save your money.

    Save Your Money

    I am currently sending back my second pair of beats3 in the last 5 months. The first pair last approximately 3 months and the volume control stopped working. I took them back to Best Buy and since I had them only 3 months they exchanged them for me. The second pair lasted less then two months and I now have the same problem. The volume control stopped working and the volume would lower itself until it was muted. Best Buy refused to exchange them again and now I have to send them to Apple. When speaking with two different techs they both stated that this was an odd problem and uncommon. In reading the reviews it sounds like a very common problem. My feeling is that the volume control button is not sweat proof like they advertise. I am anticipating the same problem with the third pair. In short, if you are going to use this product when working out SAVE YOUR MONEY.

    POOR PRODUCT

    I saved up for some time to purchase the pwerbeats 3 , and being in South Africa makes it even more expensive. Since the beginning of the year it started to give me issues, however when i checked i was outside the warranty period. The problem is getter worse and worse by the day, and it is actually so bad that i am at the point of using a hammer to destroy it which i will post online as n actual solution to solving a very expensive products problem. I have had almost every single iphone, ipad, macbook etc and never had any issues. However the Powerbeats 3 is an utter dissapointment to what Apple stands for. And the question might pop up why did i not send it in for repairs???? well just the shipping and standard repair costs almost the same as the earphones. And obviosuly when questioinig an apple store i am being asked have you submitted a support log????? I would be really amazed if Apple even comments or responds to this issue as it seems to me that I am def not the only person have issues like , track skipping, uncontrolable volume change...........
    Its is such a shame that my hard work that went into saving for such an device is to waste!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Very unhappy client!!!

    Don't purchase beats 3

    I never write reviews, but a heads up to anyone who reads these. Do not bye these headphones. Had mine for a week when they started shutting off. Funny thing is Apple knows this so yes they are all about fixing and repairing this defective product. So if you enjoy dealing with awesome customer service who is willing to go above and beyond to fix your garbage headphones than go ahead and drop the 200 bucks. You have been warned.

    Second set just died

    I can only agree with all the other reviews criticising these headphones. By far the worst Apple product I've ever bought — and I've bought a lot. I've now had two pairs of the PowerBeats3 fail within 10 months — the first set randomly took control of the volume, woke up Siri, etc; while the second set started draining a full battery in five or 10 minutes and eventually just died.

    Terrible Sound Quality

    I’m just shocked at how poor the sound quality of these are - even compared to my regular Apple earbuds.
    Frankly, the normal earbuds blow these out of the water.

    I bought the Powerbeats3 & the Solo 3 a few days ago, and even the difference between the two ade night and day (Apple earbuds aside).
    The Powerbeats have a tin/tingy sound quality to them.
    Still with the Apple earbuds.

    These are going back tomorrow.

    Power Broke 3

    Well, I am on my 6th Powerbeats headphones. The earphones are NOT designed to be used while sweating during a workout. The sweat short circuits the earphones. I have tried numerous times to get Apple to just give me a store credit, but they refuse. Instead, I receive a new pair. After a month of working out with them, they short circuit again. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE

    Headset gets disconnected from the device every few minutes.

    The headtset gets disconnected every few minutes into the session. I am also advised it will take 2 to 4 weeks for the repair. For such an expensive headset, its a very poor repair policy. It seems the product is not mature enough in terms of being water proof. I would recommend waiting for the next edition before investing in this one.

    4th replacement

    I have had to send mine in and were replaced all for exactly the same issue. They just don't charge anymore. Each time it gets replaced with a new one and lasts about 1 or 2 months, then it happens gain. Bad quality product this is..

    Terrible quality

    I'm currently waiting for my second replacement (3rd pair total). Reoccurring problem with the volume automatically turning all the way down. Except now there is a new twist...they also initiate Siri. Just what you need when you're working out and need to be focused. I'll never buy another BEATS product and you shouldn't either unless of course you're printing money and have an extra $200 to throw away.

    2 months they will break!

    I workout very hard in the gym and sweat a lot. These are not sweat proof. My volume control doesn't work and the volume is permanently low now. Going to return it get a new pair. Hopefully it doesn't break from sweat

    poor product would not even turn on.

    I bought this product at Target, after my LG wireless headphones stopped working correctly. I charged them all night and nothing will not even turn on worst waste of 200.00 dollars returning them immediately! I read the instructions, tried to reset them when on the help page nothing worked. I think I will try a different brand, very poor product experience.

    Controller wears away

    These headphones are fantastic but the rubber around the volume controller wears away leaving a headphone you can't control. 5 stars if they can fix this. Unfortunately it's a part that can't be replaced. Big money for something that has a breakable unfixable part

    Horrible product, disappointed in Apple

    Same as most here. I'm on the third pair. Break once a month, no charge held, stops turning on, controls stop working.

    Don't waste your time and money, because after 14 days they won't refund you.

    Apple- the company that has more cash than the US- ripped me off of $200.

    Not sweat resistant

    This is going to be my second pair in less than a month. They work just fine for a while, then they come in contact with sweat and they go haywire. The volume randomly goes up and down, Siri comes on without pressing anything, and the buttons stop functioning. Only good thing about it is they are still under warranty and Apple replaces them.

    Very problematic

    Purchased my Powerbeats3 from Amazon in March and I am now on my 3rd set and I am currently on hold waiting for Apple Support, likely to exchange for my 4th set. They work for a while, but then they start shutting off after short periods of usage, anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes. Then they won't reconnect. Need to plug them in overnight to revive them.
    On with support now, getting another set sent. Oh bother...

    nope

    In line controls died after a month. Go for the apple airpods. These are a bust.
