    I received my Powerbeats as a gift. They would not hold a charge, so I exchanged them for a "new" (read: likely refurbished) pair and have the same issue with the second pair. Wildly disappointing. The price is not at all proportionate to he quality of the product.

    Not for exercising

    • Written by Jeffrey S from EAGLEVILLE

    These do not handle sweat at all, if you are only going to wear them for casual use then they are fine but they can not get wet. I had my first pair for ~ 5 months before they stopped working, I was given a replacement pair since they were under warranty however when my replacement pair stopped working 4 months later I was told they only came with a 90 day warranty and are not covered.

    Until they fix these to be more water resistant or water proof, I would steer clear.

    Amazing headphones

    • Written by Matthew P from draper

    These headphones are worth every penny. They connect extremely fast to any Apple device, the range is exceptional they have no issues leaving my phone in one room and going upstairs without even a stutter. The battery life is astounding, I wear these headphones every day walking to and from campus and at the gym, each day, plus doing homework and they still easily last a week. They are definitely sweat resistant I have used them at the gym 4-5 days a week for about a year and never had any issues. Overall these are astounding and I highly recommend them.

    Where do you get off?!

    Stopped working out of nowhere. Poor sound. Wire began to rip. Should have saved my money.

    Disappointing on Almost Every Level

    • Written by Bill S from Valencia

    The only positive thing I can say about these is that the Bluetooth works beautifully with my iPhone and iPad. It is frustrating, though, that they use the same sound for power up, power down, Bluetooth pairing, and Bluetooth disconnect.

    The sound quality is mediocre. I think there are a lot of in ears that sound better for less. The design also doesn’t facilitate a good seal, which affects bass response and isolation. I’ve tried many different tips but all fall short. I’m sure that varies from person to person based on the shape and size of their ears.

    The primary negative, though, is the reliability. I’ve had to send them in for repair four times. Four. Each time they come back, they work for a while, then stop again. I can’t see why Apple won’t replace them. The people at the Apple Store told me that a lot of people bring them in for multiple repairs, at least until the warranty runs out. After that, it’s cheaper (and easier) to buy another pair - or something better.

    Bought these Friday, returning these Monday

    • Written by rad S from orland park

    not loud at all
    very uncomfortable
    buttons are awful to use
    I expected these headphones to be amazing, but I have an $8 chinese wireless headphones that are louder and sound just as good as these. These do not feel like $200 headphones at all.

    Amazing product!

    • Written by Vijay B from Dombivli East

    I was planning to buy apple airpods, one of the sales executive at the apple store recommended to go for Powerbeats 3 for hassle free use in gym. I have been using this product since last 4 months i have neither connectivity issues nor range issues. I also wore during workouts, its secured ear buds are just amazing, which never falls off from the year. As per opinion it is water resistant and sweat proof as many a times i have used in rainy season or when i am extremely sweaty, initially i was afraid but no worries. So far so good, will keep updating!

    These earbuds are amazing. They are extremely comfortable and you can wear them for hours. The battery life lasts a long time and chargers up fast. I’ve had these earbuds for over year and have had zero connectivity issues. Also they sound great.

    poor music quality

    • Written by Jenna C from Northport

    Poor quality. Don't waste your money on these. The speaker quality is awful and sounds like an old radio. Lower end headphones sound much better than these... I compared! I also personally don't like the design. They are awkward and don't fit well in my ears. I feel they aren't very functional. They are certainly not worth the price!

    I was satisfied with the quality of the product until the battery started to drain faster. Then out of no where the beats start to drain the battery even when they are turned off. Just save yourself the strain and money and buy samsung headphones.

    Didn't last.

    • Written by Greg L from Winnie

    My Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones worked great for 2 months and then wouldn't turn back on. This product was terrible due to it's inability to work for longer than 2 months.

    Really bad quality brand

    • Written by Pablo R from Guatemala

    Got them as a present a month ago and they broke up. I used them only 3 times (3 short runs) and stopped working and charging; three weeks waiting for the replacement. When I finally got the replacement, I went out for a joy run and now they won't turn on again, this time after only a 45 min workout. Going back to the reseller tomorrow to inquire whether I could have them exchange for a better brand. In the meantime, I had to use my old US$20 earphones, which are already a year old. I'm really really disappointed... and my wife, who gave those to me as a present, a bit more.

    I’m going on what will be my 4th pair of Powerbeats 3. They are NOT sweat proof. Each pair that I have had has lasted 2 months tops. Each time they fail I get an error code and they won’t turn on or charge. After a few days of drying they will charge and turn on but will only last maybe 15 min then they won’t operate. These headphones sound great and will do wonderful for anyone not sweating. Expected more from 200$ Headphones.

    Not worth your money

    • Written by Winnie M

    I got them for Christmas 2017, In January my son broke both hooks, which I didn't mind coz they were still working perfectly. By April I started having connection issue, it will disconnect and when I try to reconnect the light will flash 3 times and goes off. I sent it for repairs they told me it had accidental damage and it was out of warrant because of the broken hooks. I need to $100 for it to be repaired.

    Scotch tape is more powerful than Powerbeats 3

    • Written by Андрей Б from Москва

    Powerbeats3 stops working when the sweat touches the tiny little space which serves as a mic on the remote control. A regretful stuff for the required price. If you put a scotch tape around the mic so the sweat won’t touch it, then they work alright

    Not suitable for workouts - NOT WATER RESISTANT

    • Written by Gannon J from Santa Clara

    Had to exchange/repair these several times already, and I only really wear them for 30 minute runs. The reason, I have discovered, is that when the weather gets warm enough to where I am breaking a sweat on my run, the headphones subsequently break and won’t turn on after. These should not be marketed as water/sweat resistant or appropriate for working out. My warranty is now ending soon, so not very confident to use these for my runs anymore, which is what I bought them for. Definitely wouldn’t recommend these if you are looking for something to workout in and you have any level of perspiration during your workouts. BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
