    Constant connection problems and dropped calls - very disappointed

    • Written by Richard P from LONDON

    Ideally I would have liked to switch between my iPhone, iPad and MacBook Pro using the earphones alone. Unfortunately there's no easy way to alternate the connection. Instead you have to go into the Bluetooth settings on each device to transfer the connection. But even with that, they have to be constantly reset and re-found. They also have a habit of dropping out half way through a call which is very annoying. The connection to the MacBook Pro is consistently dodgy and connects about 25% of the time. I would have expected a lot more from Apple!

    disappointing

    • Written by William W from London

    Sound quality and fit/comfort are very good. However, there are some significant shortcomings that have forced me to abandon these after just a few weeks. 1) the battery life is significantly shorter than the standard Powerbeats and is also annoyingly unpredictable. After a full night of charging I sometimes only get an hour or two of listing time before the battery goes. 2) at least once per day one of the headphones loses its connection and needs to be reset. .... these two problems lead to a 3rd problem ... 3) charging and resetting require you to have the case with you ... out for a run ? left earphone stops working and needs to be reset ? you are out of luck unless you have the bulky hard case in your back pocket. Overall, a really poor user experience that I would not normally associate with Apple products.

    6 weeks in - already faulty

    • Written by Adam C from London

    Started impressed, comfortable fit well suited to workouts. However, within 6 weeks the headphones are faulty.

    There are two faults:

    1) The left earphone fails to turn on ~75% of the time (have to dock and un-dock multiple times). I cannot tell if this is a faulty connector on either the headphone or the case.

    2) The microphone is broken; callers on the other end of the line complain of constant static on the end of the line (I can hear them fine).

    I would not recommend these headphones.
