    The WORST Product Ever Seen

    R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S !!!!

    Please, if you have any self-esteem and value your time, please DO NOT BUY these earphones!

    I consider myself a fan of all-things-Apple. I own an iPad, iMac, iPhone and a Macbook - all tremendous products. But these headphones man, let me tell you about them.

    This is my sixth (!!!) pair I have had replaced. My first pair I bought about 3 months ago stopped working in the middle of my first Marathon after mile 12 (!) although they were fully charged. Back home, I tried to charge them - fail. No red light, no white light, no light at all. Left them charging the entire night but they simply wouldn't turn on anymore. So I sent them back to Apple and received a replacement pair. 7 days later my second brand-new pair stopped working again. Sent them back again. 5 days later they stopped working again. Sent them back again. 10 days later the fourth replacement pair stopped working again. 6 days later.. you get it.

    What a disappointment and waste of money!

    Beats by Dre headset 3

    Had to return my 1st pair because it wouldn't stay synced. My 2nd pair worked for about 1.5 months until the ear strap plastic part broke, then the other. I superglued both and that fixed it. Finally the headset wouldn't turn on after a full nights charge. Evidently the superglue voided the warranty and they told me it would be cheapie to buy a new 199.99 set. This is my last apple product I will by. Dr Dre should be disappointed!!!!

    Unreliable

    I received these for as a gift about 8 months ago and have been used almost daily since then. The last month I have had nothing but constant problems with them from. Sometimes they will connect, sometimes they won't. Sometimes they will connect but once connected they will not play any audio. I loved them when they worked, I just wish they still worked!

    I agree with everyone else

    Just got off the phone with the beats support crew and have discovered that I now own a tiny worthless mass of earbuds that won't turn on. Which is surprisingly why I sent them in to be repaired the first time. This was to no avail, however, as they came back equally as broken as when they left.

    Now I actually find comfort in reading all the other 1 star reviews on what I would consider the most epic waste of money known to mankind. And believe me... I have fathomed the concept deeply.

    Before purchasing I recommend dowsing a handful of 20's in lighter fluid and setting it ablaze. This is a flawless simulation of what powerbeats ownership will feel like. (Tip: for the most accurate experience be sure to keep the flaming bills balanced squarely in your palm!).

    Sounds great... when it works!

    I have had the same issue that many others who bought this product have had. Eventually the ear buds start turning off on their own. And it's hard to get them back on again. The sound quality is good for ear buds at this price which is why I like them and they fit well in the ear while working out. But in the end you just get really frustrated because they shut off randomly. Presumably due to sweat/ moisture. But these are advertised as sport/ active earbuds. So they should be sweat/ moisture proof. The worst thing is that it seems Apple is not doing anything to resolve this issue!!!

    Very fragile and no reliable

    I bought this earphone and after 13 months it just stop working and never more turn up again. So i went a store and how this one was impossible to repair i bought a new one. Than now 14 months later and fewer use, it just broke in the ear support. I have used that 30 times and alreandy broke. Very desapointed. Ps.: didn't have fall or had fisical damage, simply broke.

    They are worth the $50 I paid for them.

    I paid $250 for my Bose QC20 noise-cancelling earbuds and I think they are worth every penny since I do a lot of air travel. But they tend to fall out or get loose with vigorous activity and the cord gets in the way. So I got the Powerbeats3 mainly for working out and cycling. They cost $50 on promo and, unfortunately, that's about exactly what I think they are worth. I haven't had them long enough to assess build quality yet, but sound quality and comfort are extremely disappointing.

    I've had other non noise-cancelling earbuds that still block out most noise because they mold to the shape of the ear canal. These don't do that, which not only lets in a lot of noise, but also makes them uncomfortable for long usage, such as a several hour bike ride. They do stay in place very well, but the sound quality is just dreadful for something that retails for $200. Seriously, they are no better than the stock Apple earbuds. I would be extremely upset if I had paid full retail for them. Compared to the Bose, they sound like I'm listening to an old transistor radio.

    Great wireless headphones for gym, but not sweat proof at all

    After going through a few sweat proof headphones and all failing after long runs, 10km or 12km, around 1h of heavy sweat and all failing decided to get Powerbeats 3. All others, including Jaybird 3 took at least a few months before failing, it only took me 10 days for my powerbeats 3 start to fail on battery. From the advertised 12h down to less than 1h. Got a replacement and now just sticking to gym and lifting under controlled environments.

    These are the most comfortable and good music quality headphones out there for the gym, but are definitely not sweat or water proof, actually AirPods are more durable under sweat conditions that this guys.

    Dont' buy them.

    Don't buy

    The maximum volume is very low. While you can download a EQ app to increase the volume of your playlist, they should perform better out of the box. Most EQ apps won't work for itune radio or pandora so it's a wash. For the price they aren't worth a purchase. I used them twice in the gym, and they simply can't hang versus a $60 pair of wired in ear headphones. I am returning them for a refund.

    Trash headphones

    . All off the apple products I have ever bought have been great. However the beats by dre are trash. By far the worst product apple has. I spent $200 on a pair of headphones that ended up malfunctioning on me. The volume goes up and down on its own and most of the time is faint. Your beats by dre are trash, headphones that cost 200 shouldn't just lose volume. The reason I paid $200 in the first place is you get what you pay for (not in this case). There is no way I'm spending anymore money on your shifty headphones. I wouldn't recommend anyone to purchase this product.

    Thanks for nothing,
    Aggravated consumer

    Waste of money

    Although I bought them last December, I have only used them like 30 times... till they stopped working (charging). After some research and talking to friends I discovered that it is a VERY common issue. Apple simply should have pulled the product. So disappointing.

    When I finally took them to the Apple Store for repair they explained that they don't fix them in the house (like all the other products) and I have to wait up to two weeks to get it fix. The warranty is still valid, so why not.. but no big hopes on the fixed pair.

    Waste of Money don't buy.

    I bought these earphones on July 16,2017 & ended up returning them on July 20,2017, because the sound quality was absouletly horrible. You can also hear all the outside noise when these are in your ears, why can't apple do a better job than this. I mean come on apple at least give me a decent pair of wireless earphones retailed for 199.95. If you are considering on buying these, my opinion is don't buy them, but it's your money after all. I hope apple can fix this in the future generations of this specific product. I will never buy apple beats earphones ever again including the wired versions either .

    So many negative reviews BUT... I love them

    I have almost every beats product because I work out and have been an artist for the past decade (painting in studio & outside). These have held up and sound great lifting weights, doing cardio and shooting a little basketball at the YMCA. Sorry others are having such bad experiences. Hope mine continue to hold up b/c I like them considerably more than the over ear for exercise... but don't know that I would run in them outside in here in Texas were it's 100f right now or obviously could unexpectedly rain.

    I wish I could give less then 1 star!!!

    The struggle is real! All the charging issues you read about, yup! Durability scores a 0/10. I bought a pair on July 31 2016. This is the fifth time I need to have them replaced. Completely unacceptable. The only reason it's the fifth is each time they give out, they sit in a basket for a month or two before I build up the nerve to waste another hour or so waiting in the Apple Store. Do yourself a favour and don't ever buy this product.

    Worst product

    This is my second pair of PowerBeats since the first pair had to be replaced due to them not charging. Less than 6 months later and I am having the same problem. They say they are charged and then don't turn on. My husband has also had the same problem and is also on his second pair of beats after the first ones were replaced. They don't last.

    Broke after 1 use WARNING DO NOT BUY

    I had Powerbeats 2 and they lasted for a year before they eventually died. They wouldn't take a charge or do anything, so I bought the Powerbeats 3.

    THE BAD: Powerbeats 3 lasted for one 14 mile run. Then during the next run they died. Completely dead, will not charge or light up or anything. Unfortunately Apple only puts their stores in rich neighborhoods, so I either have to buy Apple products online which is a pain because they require signature for delivery and often I have to be at work, or I buy Apple products at the chain grocery store. Fortunately my grocery store allowed me to exchange them for another pair and luckily they had the same color!!! Thank you universe!!!

    The sound quality was worse compared to the 2s. I would describe it as low fi.

    The angle of the earpiece seems too sharp, this might be good for people who's ears stick out like dumbo the elephant. For me they started to hurt 7-8 miles into my run.

    THE GOOD: The volume buttons, and transport control buttons were a better design on the 3s. On the 3s you touch the bigger buttons directly as they not buried under a thick rubber sleeve like previous versions. I really liked the feel of these and think this would be an improvement if it worked.

    If you have small or medium sized ears these have more options with 4 ear covers to choose from.

    I am appalled at the number of negative reviews. If I could do it again, I would shy away and choose another brand.
