Poor Quality Posted by: from: on DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THESE!! I have purchased two sets of these already...my first pair, Apple replaced, as the volume buttons stopped working and fell apart!! They are not sweatproof like they claim they are, so if u work out a lot (and sweat a lot, like me), this product is NOT FOR YOU!!! My first pair lasted about 3 months, then I bought a second pair, and they lasted for about 1.5 months. In the meantime, I sent my first pair off to have replaced and they sent me another pair (this is my third pair)...they lasted approximately 1 month!!!! It was very frustrating, as these fit my ears perfectly and the sound quality was wonderful, however, I will not be purchasing another pair, unless they improve the quality and actually make them "sweatproof" like they claim.

So disappointed! Posted by: from: on When I bought the first pair I noticed when I was cycling that every time I turned my head the sound would break apart. The next day I wore them when I mowed my lawn and every time I went to turn the mower around and move my head in anyway the same thing happened. I lightly wiggled the wire and seemed to have a lose connection. So I took them back and traded them in for another pair. Well I mowed the back yard today with the new pair and they did the same thing. Every time I turned the mower around the music would cut out. I wiggled the wire and it didn't seem to have a lose connection this time. So annoying! I am very disappointed because the sound (when it didn't cut out) was great, they fit good and the volume raised the sound up to a good level where you can still hear with loud back ground noise. I sure hope in the future that Power Beats will improve this product with all of its faults. Time to do some research to find out which other pair I can try out next!

Awesome earbuds... if were actually sweatproof Posted by: from: on DON'T GET THESE EARBUDS IF YOU WORKOUT. They are supposed to be sweat proof, but I'm currently in my 4th replacement from Apple Store because buttons wouldn't working anymore. My first set lasted for 3 months, the second lasted 1 month, the third lasted 6 months (record!) and my fourth just 3 weeks (BAD record!). If you want earbuds for your workouts look for those with buttons/controls integrated to the ear set (so they are much less subject to sweat than those where controls are near to your neck, where an average person sweats a lot).

Broken after a month of use Posted by: from: on This product was not eligible for best buy's warranty program. I used the product for a little over a month before it broke. While I was putting the earpiece in my ear, part of the headset separated at the seam and could not be put back together. The earpiece is dangling by a couple of wires. The headsets have a 1 yr warranty but you have to send them in and wait 3-10 days after they receive it to find out if they will be able to repair them and if you have to pay for the repairs. I also spent an hour with tech support to get my repair order processed. I am not sure I want a "repaired" set of headphones. These were expensive. Based on the cost and brand name, I expected a quality product that could withstand everyday normal use. I do love the sound quality and comfort of this set. In fact, I would have given then a 5 star rating if this had not happened. The sound quality and comfort do nothing for me though, if I can no longer use them. :-(

Vs Jaybird x Posted by: from: on I did research on many wireless bluetooth headsets. Settled on the Jaybirds X and these new PowerBeats 2. Tested the Jaybirds out and for the most part many will be happy. Great fit, Comfortable, sound pretty good. Issue was Volume level not high enough for my subjective liking and the voice prompts that beep when you raise volume level was annoying on the control center. The PowerBeats 2 sound has more bass and volume is 50% higher compared to Jaybirds. They also fit very well and even though they have ear hooks they don't interfere with sun glasses or normal eyewear. Both are packaged very well but if your into that sort of thing the Jaybirds do have better packaging if comparing, the beats are nice but basic in packaging. I'd advise everyone to buy the extended plan as both have reliability issues in the respective history as headphone brands. Hopes this help who ever is in the market. I took the plunge and spent over $500 altogether for my testing. In the end keeping the PowerBeats 2. To my ears they sound better and louder.

Very Nice - wish they were cheaper Posted by: from: on I bought these because I constantly broke the apple headphones. I am constantly moving around at work and with my phone in my pocket, it tugs at the port, and has wrecked my phone and several pairs of headphones. I needed wireless headphones. I saw several other pairs, that were cheaper, so they were right up my alley, but they all had a very weird look and seemingly all had a large band behind the neck- which I did not like. These were expensive, even refurbished ones. But honestly, the sound is great(seems like they should be able to go a little bit louder, o well). The band that goes behind your neck is thin and barely noticeable, unless when you only put on bud in your ear, the other side tugs the band and other bud, which can be solved by clipping the unused bud on your shirt. Overall they are great- functionality, volume is sufficient, and look. I only gave 4 stars because I have bigger ears, and the plastic that holds the headphone on your ear can be bothersome and even hurt sometimes. they also cost a lot

They already broke Posted by: from: on This is pretty disappointing. I've kept them stored in the protective case when I'm not using them and they have already broken. For this to be so expensive, I don't get why the plastic on one of the ear pieces is already broken. Really disappointed. I haven't done anything weird with them or stacked anything on top of them in their case at all. I just pulled them out of the case this morning and found it like this.

Buttons don't work Posted by: from: on I bought the Powerbeats2 wireless to use at the gym. I charge them about once a week. After 3 months or so, and after several times of pulling my headphones out of my gym back and having no charge (so maddening!), I took a closer look. It turns out the power button no longer works to turn off the headphones. There is absolutely no way for me to turn them off. So that means, they are continuously using battery - 24 hours a day. The only way for me to still use them is too keep them charged at all times, unplug right before a workout, then plug them back in. I brought them back into Best Buy to ask about a return or exchange (with receipt and all original packaging) and was turned away after no solutions were offered. So much for my Elite Plus membership. Oh, and as an added bonus, the volume/skip button does not work with my iPhone 6 Plus. A waste of $200.

Best to Run/Workout in Posted by: from: on I have had all types of beats: studio, solo, solo 2, pro wireless, and ur beats. As far as stability and comfort while working out, this model takes the cake and are far superior for vigorous exercise. Sound quality is a 8.5/10 where the studio beats would be a 10/10, but where it lacks in sound it makes up in overall comfort and stability. The look of this model also adds to the overall quality. I fell in love with the Bluetooth and other capaoblities the power eats 2 supplies. If you are looking a perfect piece of audiowear for working out in, look no further than these.

Complete Disappointment - Broke 2 months into use Posted by: from: on So I was so excited when I first received my Beats headphones in the mail. They worked great while I had them and really free'd me from that insufferable cord during my workouts. Because I spent so much on them ($130) I wanted to make sure that they stayed safe in their little zippered shell. I always put them back into the shell and zip the shell closed. Once day while at the gym I go to put the ear buds into my ear and the base of the ear bud section just shears off. No loud cracking noise or anything. Its just suddenly hanging with wires exposed. There are no visible cracks just a sheared surface where the base of the bud used to connect to the section that goes over your ear. If you observe the other one, there is a joint visible in the plastic at that location. This is obviously an extreme design flaw for it to just cleanly shear off at this joint to hang and expose the wires. The head phones are now completely unusable. The whole reason I spent that much money was because I was under the impression I was purchasing a quality product. A product that could provide quality acoustics and last for a respectable amount of time. I am so disappointed. Will NOT be buying these again.
