    No Regrets- Love Them

    I bought these almost a year ago and have no regrets. I wear them while running outdoors and at the gym. I have not experienced any issues with battery life, connectivity, or sound. They continue to work flawlessly even after repeated exposure to sweat and even the occasional rain shower. I can never get earbuds to stay in place so for me the wireless over-the-ear design is perfect.

    Poor quality and awful battery.

    These were given to me as a birthday present in April, and I was so excited to get them.
    That excitement lasted around 3 days.
    The battery life is barely 90 minutes from a full charge, which isn't the end of the world, but is a lot worse than advertised.
    On the 3rd day they lost their connection to the iPhone and it could take 15 or 20 minutes to re-pair them.
    It wasn't the phone at fault as it was connection fine with other bluetooth speakers and devices.
    Then the left earpiece stopped working completely. The guy at the Apple retailer asked me if they were water damaged! They are designed to be used during activities, so I would presume they are sweat proof and I had worn my €15 cheap Chinese pair in the rain for months with no issue.
    Then of course they wouldn't take them in as I didn't have the receipt (most people don't include the receipt with the present) so they are now just binned.
    I'm back to using my cheap pair off of ebay and yes they are wired, but they work after getting sweaty and to be honest have far superior sound quality/bass as well.
    Really disappointing product, second pair of beats (Had the Dre ones from about 4 years ago) and both were really sub standard for the cost. I will certainly be avoiding beats going forward.

    Garbage..Don't Waste Your Money...

    Ever since Apple took over Dre Beats they have turned into over priced pieces of garbage. I have had the privilege of having three different pairs fail on me. I will never buy another one of these products again, the return service is horrible and such a pain. Take my advice and buy the Bose headphones or a cheap pair of whatevers, they will break on you far less than the power beats 3's....

    Not up to Apple quality

    These headphones work great... as long as you don't sweat. On my 4th pair, have completely given up trying to wear them for exercising. Having to buy other "sweat proof" headphones to use for running...

    Not worth it

    Have had these for a few months and have had to have them replaced 2 times. The ear piece also broke and I have done nothing but run with them. They are honestly not worth the money, I would invest in bose, or some other trusted company for quality headphones, this is a rip off. They need to extend this product to lifetime warranty in order for me to reccommend these.

    Great for the Gym/Workouts

    Ive been using these a minimum of 8 hrs a week for about 16 months now and really enjoy them a lot. The only reason I didnt give them 5 stars is that I would like to see the bass improve a bit but they still provide a great sound for being an ear bud style wireless headphone. I see a few complaints on here about how they dont sound as good as the Studio 3 headphones and my first thought is you cant compare apples to watermelons. These are not going to give you the same sound as an over the ear headphone system, Its just not going to happen. They do however have great batter life, stay in/on the ear very well, and on top of that provide a good quality sound both musically and through phone calls.

    My Powerbeats 3 Wireless Earphones, 1 year later

    I purchased by my Powerbeats 3s one year ago to use during our local 10K on Memorial Day, and they've been great. Been using them when running... training for races and participating in events, and when on a treadmill indoors. I've had no issues at all, just great sound, and no worries of them ever becoming dislodged from my ears. I always keep them fully charged, hooking them up to my MacBook each evening. They are one year old now, and working the same as the day I opened the box. :)

    As Advertised

    I was actually shocked to see how many bad reviews these have. Granted, if mine broke, I'd be in the same boat. However, mine haven't and they've been as advertised. The headphones themselves don't move while working out (which is great) and the max volume is right on that line of just right/blow your eardrums out. They don't go as loud as other headphones out there, but like I said...I don't think you'll really need to go over what the max is with these. The sounds are crisp and quality. And to my surprise, the "quick charge" feature works beautifully.

    My only complaint is that string that holds them together being wide and flat sticks to your neck when you sweat. So, if you turn your head and it's stuck to your neck it'll start to tug on one of the headphones and you may have to readjust one. Not the end of the world, just a minor annoyance.

    Don't be turned off by all the reviews on here. Upset people make their voice heard, not people totally happy with their purchase. Checkout YouTube or other tech sites for legitimate reviews.

    Terrible quality

    I purchased 2 pairs. One of them I had to send them back for repair 5 times already and still waiting to see what happenes with the 5th repair. Another one I had to send it 3 times until I decided to change it for something else. They just stop working with no reason at all. Terrible and expensive product to get into. Better to buy some cheap pair of another brand than buying beats ever again. Keep your boxes and cables in order to get your money back or at least a store credit, I am pretty sure, you will need it.

    Not worth the Money

    My first set lasted a few months and stopped working altogether (it seems sweat breaks them) , the replacement set also broke after a few workouts. After looking through other reviews sweating seems to be the main reason they break so they are not as advertised "Sweat Proof" Stay well away from these. They are just an expensive paperweight .

    PowerBeats3- Would Not Recommend

    WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THESE HEADPHONES! I bought the powerbeat3 to use while working out in the gym and running outside. In the 15 months I've had the headphone I've had to replace them three times as they would stop turning on. I'm now over my year warranty with Apple and I'm experiences issues with the headphones stopping mid workout but several hours later they turn on and work as normal. Overall these headphones break easily and are not wroth the expensive price tag.

    waste of money

    Dont sound as expected. Bose Qc series or Skullcandy 50/50 are wayyyyy better! Dont buy powerbeats 3 if you love to listen to music!

    For a piece of equipment that is advertised to be able to workout with this product is a flop. I have had nothing but problems. The volume goes up and down on its own. It starts and stops music. Sometimes they won't turn off. I have been to the apple store twice to resolve this. I keep getting the same quality. STAY AWAY. If you seriously work out do not use these they will malfunction in the coming months.

    Absolute trash didn't even last 2 months

    I work out a lot and have gone through tons of different head phones over the years. I was excited when my girlfriend bought these for me for Christmas as I never liked spending a lot of money on head phones because I could never find a reliable pair. Within two weeks of working out with these they started to turn off on their own because of sweat (even though they are supposed to be sweat resistant). Then out of no where they just stopped charging. I feel like my girlfriend was completely ripped off by this product and having Lebron James wearing them while working out is the biggest joke I've ever seen. Things couldn't even last a half hour of jogging on a treadmill before having problems. DO NOT BUY! I promise you, you will have a problem with them.

    Second pair on their way back

    Very disappointed that these are an apple product. Reading all of these emails. Steve Jobs would never have allowed a product with this many problems and what seems an inability to correct it to go out.

    If I could give this product zero stars, I would

    If anyone is thinking of getting the Beats Powerbeats3 wireless...reconsider your actions. They have exactly 1 year of shelf life. I’ve had two pairs and both stopped charging just days after the 1 year warranty expired. I went to Apple and they told me that they could “try” to fix them at a cost of 128SGD each. For such a pricy product I would expect them to last much longer. Apple washes their hands of any responsibility. Remember it’s not one pair but two pairs that did exactly the same thing. Waste of your money. Don’t do it

    Absolutely horrible product and customer service

    - Have had 3 pairs in 9 months. All three have had the same issues. Can’t keep a charge. Won’t turn on after a full night of charging. Turn off in the middle of the run.
    - Apple has sent two replacement pairs because of warranty. I was told that the warranty is now up and I could spend 250 USD for Apple Care and get them replaced. Last time I checked, a new pair is 150-200 USD? Customer service employee told me “those are your two options, so pick one.” Obviously I am not going to bother with either option and I will be buying a different brand. Apple should be embarrassed by this product, many others are having the same exact issues.
    - I am a loyal Apple customer and advocate. I have had an IPhone since they came out, and now have an Apple Watch. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, money, or effort on these.

    Very Impressed!

    I read many reviews of the PB3's and was very cautious about buying them due to such negative reviews. I thought I would buy them due to them being the newer models and due to the convenience of working out in them. So I received my pair and I have had to major problems with them. They are really loud and actually the sound is pretty good when the volume is almost all the way down. The sound is so good it really cancels out outside commotion. These run a long charge time, I use them all day and charge them at night for full charge to start my day. Very easy to use and connect. I really recommend these earphones
