    Purchased these for my younger brother. Less than a month later he was hearing static from one side of the earphones. This would be in and out though, so he didn’t think it was too big of a deal. But one night he removes the headphones from the jack on his iPad and it breaks off leaving half of it inside. He was so upset, and I initially thought maybe he had yanked it and it broke due to consumer error, but I read online about it happening to lots of other Beats EP users due to this being the only beats model that has a PLASTIC headphone jack. All others are metal. I have no clue why this is the case as even cheap airline headphones come with a metal headphone jack. Apple wouldn’t replace it nor would they help remove the other side of the plastic headphone jack stuck in the iPad, but recommended buying new headphones and a new iPad. We ended up having to go to an outside shop to remove it. Suffice it to say unless your going to baby your headphones like they’re made of crystal I’d take a pass on these Beats.

    Great sound lasts a long time

    • Written by Denise W from Renton

    I got these as a present and have been enjoying every minute of these. Great sound and it lasts for a long time. I might get a second pair to use for travel and to have as a backup pair. No more cheap $30 head phones from Amazon for me. The several dozens I've purchased over the years from Amazon could have paid for a pair of these by now.

    Don’t buy this! Product is poorly made!

    • Written by Erika S from North Ogden

    My son purchased a pair of these with his Christmas money. He was so proud and happy with them at first but they only lasted 2 months. The screws which hold the sliders on both came off on their own and the rubber piece that was inside was lost. I brought it to the Apple store and was told it was covered under warranty and it would be replaced. I got an email the day after stating it was not covered and we would have to pay $79 for a new pair. I refused to purchase another pair of these! It is not worth the money and the stress of having to deal with Apple. I have always been an Apple phone user and all my children have beats headphones. These are cheaply made and not worth $130!!

    Not bad, but not amazing.

    • Written by Mark G from Moscow

    The Beats EP are a good pare of headphone. They are very sturdy and will definitely get you some complements! The only problem is the cable. It is very cheap and you can not change it, so if it breaks - you’re going to have a bad day. The headphones come with a nice carying pouch and a GREAT unboxing experience.
    Now, the most important thing is sound quality. I’m no audiophile but I know a lot about headphones and sound quality. Theese are not amazing or outstanding. I will just say that you won’t be disappointed! The bass is heavy (as expected) but not overwhelming and vocals are not great but good.
    On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a 7. Are the Beats EP worth 130$? YES!

    Consistantly Bad Products

    • Written by Phillip M from Oak Park

    My pair of Beats EP headphones fell apart within 1 month. earpiece detached without any outside force. Apple refused to repair. i understand you don't cover accidental damage, but that is not what happened. They fell apart in my hand.

    Anyway, shame on me because my previous two pairs of Beats Headphones also stopped working (no sound) within the first year.

    Taking Advantage of Kids

    • Written by CHRISTINA S from Overland Park

    Both my son and his best buddy got these as their main holiday gifts. Both sets developed the same wiring problem mentioned by another reviewer--they could only hear from one side--with only a few months of normal use. I feel like Apple took advantage of not just me, but of these boys. So disappointing. Meanwhile the earbuds that come with apple products keep on ticking....so clearly these Beats are an inferior product. All hype, no delivery. Never again.

    These are not worth it. Bought two pairs and both broke. We weren't rough on them at all. Not durable and the sound isn't even worth $130.

    Not worth it all!

    • Written by Hank D from Bound Brook

    The beats headphones are not worth it at all. I bought two--one for each of my kids. Both sets had wiring problems where they could only hear the sound from one speaker. I had to take them back and get them fixed. They did fix them, but I shouldn't even have to do that given the price. for that price they should work like a charm. Then the cable snapped on my daughter's headphone and that wasn't;t covered under any warranty, so I was just out a $100 in less than three months.
    Don't waste your money on these--get Bose or something that will work and last.
    Apple really dropped the ball here--I will not by anything else that says "beats". Also the customer service in the Apple Store has really gone down the drain.

    $100 is a bit much for these

    • Written by Brandon B from Wildomar

    These headphones sound pretty great, but they are far from the best. That being said, the sound quality is still the best thing about these headphones as when I first got them I could not wear them for more than thirty minutes without hurting my ears. They did slightly break in after a while and they have become more comfortable since then, but it took quite some time before they got to that point. The blue color is also somewhat dull in person and not a very pleasant color in my opinion, but that's up to the individual person to decide. The leakage is pretty significant so if you plan on playing them loud, other people will be able to hear it easily. Overall they are pretty good headphones, but not for $100. You can easily find them for $80 on other places (I believe Best Buy sells them at that price) and I think that's more than a fair price for them. If you get these headphones for $80 I believe you will be very satisfied with what you get.

    Promising but not quite there

    • Written by Samuel E from Irvine

    I think the sound is very good in my opinion but I find that the microphone is terrible when making calls. A lot of times people say that I sound far away or muffled. The headphones that apple gives us when we buy a phone is way better. At $99 you would expect a better mic but nope. And if you play music everyone is going to hear you. That's not really a problem but it would be nice to fix. Also you can't unplug the audio cable. If the cable goes bad and breaks somehow then the whole headphone is done and you can't use it anymore. I think above all I wish the mic was better so I didn't have to unplug it when I need to make a call. I dunno maybe it is just my headphone. Great sound quality though.
