      PowerBeats ARE NOT Good For Workouts

      If you do a search, many people are having issues with the Powerbeats2 & Powebeats3. If you sweat a lot during workouts, the sweat gets into the inline micropho If you do a search, many people are having issues with the Powerbeats2 & Powebeats3. If you sweat a lot during workouts, the sweat gets into the inline microphone/controller, and it stops working. Apple went as far as to tell a few people 'they sweat too much', and that Powerbeats are not 'waterproof'. I've exchanged my Powerbeats3 four times at Best Buy. I thought I was getting defective headphones - until I did some research and found feedback from other people that were having the same issues. Not only does the controller stop working, the tracks skip on their own, the music pauses on its own - and randomly starts playing again, the volume increases/decreases on its own. It's a nightmare of an experience when you're trying to workout. I love Beats products (I own wireless Studios, wireless Solos, and two Pills), but they need to do more R&D on the Powerbeats3. They need to make the inline controller/microphone truly water resistant to withstand all levels of sweating. When/If they can get it right, I'll definitely purchase them again. I love the fit, feel & sound.

      Apple missed it

      Just received my powerbeats 3 I'm upgrading from powerbeats 2 because I wore out the ear hooks. 1st off I bought these due to the class 1 Bluetooth that should Just received my powerbeats 3 I'm upgrading from powerbeats 2 because I wore out the ear hooks. 1st off I bought these due to the class 1 Bluetooth that should increase the wireless range about 100x BUT it is usueless when you realize apple does not make any other devices with class 1 for it to even work. Tested it exact same range as powerbeats 2. So increased range nope. Easier pairing? Apple gimmick, the only thing different really is a splash screen to pair. Connection reliability, well I never had connection problems with my powerbeats 2. Now the most irritating part, the sound. Powerbeats 2 are louder and have a more rich sound which is definitely noticeable compared to the powerbeats 3. So if you are needing the claimed 12hrs of battery life get them if not and 6hrs is more than enough then find the powerbeats 2 on clearance and save some $. I'm returning these powerbeats 3 first thing in the morning and grabbing a new pair of powerbeats 2 on clearance. For the money I expect more from beats/apple. This is from an apple lover and am thoroughly disappointed in the powerbeats 3.

      4th pair since November just broke again

I bought a pair on launch day and was very happy to get them. I use them 4 times a week for an hour while I run on a treadmill. First pair made it about 2 1/2 weeks and then shorted out and were dead in the water. Apple took them back and gave me brand new pair at the store. That second pair lasted 3 weeks and then crapped out during my workout. Apple issued me another pair and told me "I shouldn't make a habit of trying to exchange these at the store" I cared for this third pair as best I could. I dried them off every time I used them made sure never to overcharge them and took great care of them overall. Then 1/2 way through my workout boom, stop working with no warning. Apple store gives me a 4th pair after a spirited conversation with the store manager. Well they made it through one week and now they have all but stopped working. The latest quirk that this pair is showing is the volume slowly fades from desired level to zero and can not be turned back up. These things are expensive garbage and I will not be getting a 5th pair. American Express has issued me a refund through their consumer protection clause and I am moving on to something else entirely. Just a shame these things cant work for more than a few weeks because when they work they seem to be an ideal set of workout headphones but they never work for long.

      Terrible! Buy Bose

      The flimsy ear clip keeps breaking and the replacement price is the price of new beats.

The earbuds that come with it are very cheap and are constantly slipping out. You can get better quality earphones for the same price.

      Poor Battery Life and Certainly Not Sweat Proof

      These are actually far far worse than much cheaper wireless earphones being sold elsewhere. I brought them and within a month the battery life was no where near These are actually far far worse than much cheaper wireless earphones being sold elsewhere. I brought them and within a month the battery life was no where near the specified length that apple says. Also I haven't used them in a particularly sweaty environment but the two pairs I had the microphone buttons stopped working as well, followed by the power button wouldn't not turning them on/off, then the volume buttons also followed suit and stopped working. Vert poor and gone back to more reliable cheaper ones.

      IF YOU SWEAT WHEN YOU WORKOUT, DONT BUY THESE

      I'll keep this short, since there not much to say about the Powerbeats 3. The sound is mediocre at best. The quality is great but it's not loud, at all. Mayb I'll keep this short, since there not much to say about the Powerbeats 3. The sound is mediocre at best. The quality is great but it's not loud, at all. Maybe if you're at home at night in bed when it's quiet, but if you're at the gym where there's obviously alot of background noise, it's too quiet. I have had to replace mine twice in under a year, I'm on my 3rd pair now (with the extended warranty, there's no way I'm buying these again). Why? Because like most people, I sweat when I work out. THESE ARE NOT BUILT FOR THE GYM. Bottom line: IF YOU SWEAT, THESE WILL STOP WORKING
