    Just as I suspected these are over priced over hyped headphones with a great marketing campaign. Don’t waste your money. I’ve had these about 3-4 months now and will randomly die mid workout even though they are charged. Ave your money and buy PLANTRONICS headphones.

    No bass and flat sound

    • Written by Cheap S

    Very disappointing sound. Bass is non existent. I figured with “beats” headphones I would be able to hear some “beats”. I wish I had saved my money and bought headphones from another company...

    Disappointed and surprised tbh

    • Written by Olivia H from Bedford

    I really liked these headphones! Emphasis on the past tense... got them as a Xmas gift so only had them for about 6 months and they’ve already crapped out on me! Won’t turn on, won’t take a charge, nothing. Honestly the sound quality was never that great, especially for beats, but I did like how they fit and stayed on so well, especially since I’m someone who HATES ear buds you gotta really jamb in there. Safe to I wish I’d read all these fellow scathing reviews before spending so much money on them... don’t know if They’re poorly made or not nearly as resistant to sweat as they claim but I’m so upset

    This was my second pair of beats headphones that both end up having exposed wires on one end of the earbud. The rubber is still intact and yet has detached from the earbud exposing one side of the wire. And now that head phones have no sound at all; and the other pair has tons of static on one side and the other side doesn't have any sound! Don't let the name brand fool you! I've purchased a pair of Sony wireless earbuds for less than half the cost of these over priced "Beats" and I have no issues with the rubber detaching, no exposure of wires, no charging issues and I run with them, so they are also sweat proof as well! AND, if I had an issue with them, I could return them with my receipt for FULL REFUND or EXCHANGE!! Apple/Beats... is a rip off!
    -Highly DISsatisfied "former" customer!

    An apple/beats racket

    • Written by Donald V from Chesterfield

    Completely worthless. I had mine for six months, and the earpiece fell off. Best Buy and the apple store said that they would be covered under warranty. After sending them in the “depot” said there was “water damage” so they wouldn’t replace them. But, would charge me $99, the price I paid for them in the first place, to repair them. These are supposed to be workout headphones and get water damage from sweat? Just an excuse to get out of replacing them. I’m disappointed apple and beats. You just lost a longtime customer. Guess you’re too big to take care of your small consumers, huh? Don’t buy! They’re not any better than the $5 pair you can get at the gas station, sound quality, and build quality. I’d give zero stars if I could. Count this review as a zero star review and not the one star I have to give. Don’t waste your hard-earned cash.

    Powerbeats 3 wireless

    • Written by David N from Youngwood

    I am extremely disappointed in this product, the headphones will not turn on and when I attempt to charge them, they just blink white and red and do not charge. This product is advertised as being sweat resistant, but after only a few uses in the gym while sweating, this product would randomly disconnect and turn off even after being charged to full battery power. These are extremely over-priced for the product that you get. I'm debating on getting a new pair of wireless headphones from a different brand because these have just given me constant issues since using them for the first time.

    This is my second pair of beats headphones. The first pair I bought was the BeatX, these did not last longer than three months. I received a new pair from Apple which only lasted 8 more months. I decided to purchase the power beats3 on April 28th 2019. The headphones have now stopped working on June 10th 2019, I am just so disgusted with the quality of these expensive headphone. I will not be purchasing another beat product again.

    Another Broken Ear Piece

    • Written by robert R from charlotte

    I went to put the earbuds in and the ear clip just fell off. I called apple support and they told me I would have to pay $100 to get them replaced. You can order a part on ebay and fix them yourself for $9. Bose would straight up replace their product without charging. Says a lot that Apple won't stand behind their product.

    Ear hook will break off in less than 6 months

    • Written by Alice L from Brooklyn

    We purchased these headphones on 12/26. In May - less than 6 months after purchase - one of the rounded pieces that hooks it on the ear broke off. I contacted Apple to try to get it repaired and they said that that wasn't covered and offered to sell me a new pair fo $100 + shipping and handling. The customer service person shared that she had had the same problem. It's clearly a design flaw that the wire that connects the ear hook to the piece isn't very resilient. I would not recommend these headphones for that reason.

    Bad product

    • Written by Brandon W from Chesapeake

    I bought mine a couple of years ago after I bought a pair for my wife. I had to send both pair back multiple times because the ear piece just fell off. The last pair I got finally worked but just recently stopped, maybe due to sweat. I expected more from both the name and the product.

    I have been using these for about 2 months at the gym while on the treadmill. I sweat a lot, and lately I’ve noticed that the Powerbeats will randomly increase the volume on its own (nearly blowing out my ear) or then randomly decrease the volume, pause the track, and start skipping and shuffling the tracks (I use Spotify not that this should even matter). It even starts up Siri on it’s own. This was never an issue when I first got them but 2 months in, I put them through the ultimate sweat test and they are definitely a no go. Oh and because I’ve sweat so much, the volume controls do not work when I click them. And the Powerbeats themselves are extremely hard to turn on and off (I have to keep pressing and holding the power button oddly longer than usual). If you’re like me and you’re looking for a pair of earphones that are truly sweat resistant, these are not it, save your money.

    2nd pair that broke

    • Written by Daniela L from Encinitas

    My first Powerbeats broke right after the warranty coverage, apple gave me new ones with 3 months warranty, after 5 months it won't turn it on just like the first pair. don't waste you money, they don't worth the price.

    Stay away

    • Written by Van N from Bremerton

    GREAT Produce idea. Stays on the ear, great sound, and small. Everything about this is great except it only works for about 60 days. Then it wont turn on. It will have to be hard reset, charged and when unplugged not connect to your phone. HORRIBLE. I had to contact Apple to repair my headphones since 2015 when I have the powerbeat2 and I assumed when I upgraded this wouldn't happen. That is not the case at all. Save your money, but something else or even spend a little more and get something where you don't have to have repaired every 2 months.

    Too long? - Stay away. Save your money or spend more on something that doesn't require you to repair so often

    Do not waste your money

    • Written by Camie S from Burlington

    Horrible product...these were purchased for me as a gift almost 4 months ago, after about a month they started cutting out eventually would disconnect and not let me reconnect. I called Apple who had me reset them, this worked for about a week then it started doing the same thing! I sent them in to be repaired and was told that there was nothing wrong with them and they were sending them back to me! After my 4th call to them they stated I can send them back and they will replace them with refurbished ones!! By reading other reviews it seems I am no the only one that has had this problem! DO NOT WAIST YOUR MONEY!!

    • Written by Christopher C from LONDON

    My second pair. Both times they stopped working suddenly. Obviously not sweat proof. Good luck to those suing Apple!
