    Clearly a marketing gimmic.

    Dre should be ashamed to associate with such terrible sound. OMG they sound like an am radio from the 70s. If they won’t take them back I will throw the two pair I bought today...away. Sad sad sad. Feel good look good, sound BAD !!! Apple ear pods are 5x the sound. Shame on you all!!!

    Very dissapointed that my headphones stopped working after 1 year.

    I was very pleased with the quality of the headphones but was very disappointed when they broke down after having them for only 1 year. I purchased on 5/10/17 and they stopped working on 5/14/18. Now I have been told that I need to purchase a new pair or replace the pair for $80.00 which is ridiculous since I take very good care of my headphones and they stopped working due to something defective with their product. The fact that they stopped working after a year does not make me feel confident in purchasing or replacing because how am I guaranteed that they will not break down after a year again.

    Should last longer than 14 months

    Honestly these were the best earphones I had ever owned until they decided to stop working in the right ear just after the warranty expired. I'm very gentle with my electronics. I used them yesterday morning and they were fine. In the afternoon audio was only coming out of the left ear. They still charge fine and every other thing functions except I get no audio from the right earphone. 150 bucks is a lot of money to have to spend on wireless buds once a year. I'm really bummed about this. If you're lucky this won't happen to you. I was hopeful about these. They seemed sturdy.

    Just blinking

    Worked fine for a while and suddenly start disconnecting and end up by blinking 3 times and going off, and the warranty worth nothing, the agent just resetting it and denying any problem

    Not as good as it look

    I have this when it was first release but it just went dead after 1 month of normal usage. Luckily it was covered by warranty and i was given a replacement. Now after a year of usage, it just went dead again. No abuse just normal usage. Went to the store and was told that i need to pay to get a replacement that only provide 3 month warranty. No way i am going to spend that kind of money on something not reliable. Do a search on the internet and you will see all the problems associate with this product.

    I've been through several of these in a little over a year...

    The Beats X unfortunately do not hold up. I have had to replace mine several times in the last 14 months and my latest pair just became defective within a month.

    Pair #1: Stopped charging after about three month. Replaced by warranty.
    Pair #2: Sound on one side dropped about 50%. Replaced by warranty.
    Pair #3: Same as above.
    Pair #4: OK, I lost this one.
    Pair #5: Some sort of pinched wire situation in under a month (movement, touching the cable, etc. causes static/sound cut out).

    It's a shame because I found the sound quality excellent and loved the fact that it uses Lightning to charge.

    Terrible..stay away !!

    Short version of this review, it’s terrible in every sense of the word!

    The long version:
    (1)- battery life: they lied as they claimed it will stay at least 7-8 hours on a single charge , in my testing on full charge 50% volume it only stayed for 5 hours and 30 minutes, I went back to the store, no one gave me any sort of attention and they said it’s just alright!!
    (2)- the control button is so laggy!! You can press double clicks to ff a song, its not responding, instead it plays or pause or trigger siri or whatever!!
    (3)- 3 months after I bought it, the battery literally died, I sent it to be repaired, they examined it and told me there’s a scratch on the inner frame which means it’s now damaged it’s out of warranty. They didn’t repair it and asked me to pay +80 dollars without the taxes to be repaired!!
    (4)- spoiler alert: That was the second one as I bought one 1 week ago and it kept draining so fast like 30 minuets after a single full charge and replaced it for me!!! They said it’s very common manufacturing defect !!!
    (5)- it’s classic beats headphones.. which means over priced tech, garbage quality.. literally garbage quality, it’s no way compared to other headphones out there and half the price!!

    Stay away

    Do not buy.

    I tried to give the beats the benefit, they worked for two weeks and I had connection problems after being fully charged. Get the Apple wireless earbuds, it a little more expensive but worth.

    Lasted 3 Months

    These earbuds only lasted me 3 months. They suddenly stopped working. So I did what anybody else would do. I called Apple support. I shipped my set of earbuds and I was told that they will cost $166 to repair! That’s more than a brand new set! I really loved these till they died. Apple support was a big disappointment. I only used the at my job (I work at call center.) These earbuds failed when I wore them casually at an office. Highly dissapointed...

    Disconnect disconnect disconnect

    If you want to get stressed buy Beats X
    It disconnects when you change the music, when you plug your iPhone to charge, when unplug your iPhone from charging, when you plug your iPhone to charge in your car, when you unplug your iPhone from charging to leave the car, when you turn off your car engine, when you turn on your car engine, when you open the door of your car and when you finally get it connected it will stop playing and a message will appear on your phone “accessory is not recognized”, and you have to connect it again.
    It works, but you have to press the play button one hundred times to maintain it connected, it will disconnect as I explained above; when connecting the iPhone to a power source, disconnecting it, change music, turn off car engine, turn on car engine, opening the door...
    It’s the most stressful experience I ever had.
    I read you need to update it, I did and mine is new and updated, that’s is the message that appears.
    So, it is this way, disconnects for anything, I’m not kidding.
    It’s is just unbelievable! And they charge you more than $100 bucks for that. Instead they should give you some money to treat your mental health.

    They won’t last long...

    I would not recommend these headphones to anyone. They are far too expensive of a product for the headache they cause. This is my experience. I bought my first pair March 2017. By July 2017 they would not turn on. I sent them back for replacement. By September 2017 they would not turn AGAIN. They did a out of box return in the store this time, essentially resetting the warranty clock. They lasted until March 2018 where they AGAIN would not turn on. All this time I charged them using the beats cable they came with or a OEM Apple cable from them or a authorized retailer. If not in use they hung from my neck (not exposed to water or sweat) or were in the pouch they came with. However, since this pair had cosmetic damage (one of the Bs one of the buds came off and a mesh on the bud was missing) they would not replace them under warranty but would replace them for $80.00. Uh, no. How long would it be until I take them back to be replaced AGAIN? Enough is enough. They were nice while they lasted which wasn’t long.

    Won’t work after a month of owning them

    I bought them at Best Buy. They worked great for a few weeks and then they wouldn’t charge or play. I found all the troubleshooting tips and videos and still don’t work. There seems to be an issue with the battery. Time and time again this seems to be the complaint. Hopefully enough people complain and they design a better product.

    Do Not Buy BeatsX, I am 3 pairs in

    I am currently on my third pair of BeatsX earphones. I absolutely despise them. My first pair came in the mail from Apple.com, and worked for 5 days and completely stopped working. I took them into the Apple store in person and got them exchanged, and then the same problem occurred 10 days later. I then became heavily busy and unable to return to the store for quite some time. For about 5 months I was out of a pair of earphones due to the low quality of BeatsX. I recently took them back to the Apple store and received a replacement. I only expect the problem to perpetuate.

    Do yourself a favor, and do not purchase this product.

    Had these for one year and have had to have them replaced 3 times now, 2 times for them completely not working and one time for the volume button not working. Beats/ Apple should be ASHAMED of themselves for selling such a piece of garbage to customers, especially for what we paid. The warranty should be extended on all of these, I looked online after the first incident and hundreds of people were having the same issues. Waste of my money.ZERO STARS

    Poor Quality

    Initially I really liked them, but the first pair broke down after two months, and my replacement pair sent straight from Apple also broke down after 8 months. If you Google "BeatsX not charging" you can find many people who have experienced issues -- and the endless troubleshooting which is like an extended game of bop it. Because it's been almost one year since I purchased the original pair, Apple will only stand behind the replacement pair for 90 days. That tells you how much Apple believes in this product.

    No bass, stopped working after 7 months

    Title sums it up. These were ok as far as form factor and ease of charging. But the sound likes punch and they just stopped working after 7 months of use.
