Best Buy Customer Reviews

Awful sound quality compared to Bose Posted by: from: on I was very disappointed in these headphones. For the past 3 years, I've been using a pair of wired Bose earbuds I bought for $90. I decided to jump on the whole wireless headphone train and got a pair of these since I've heard so much about Beats headphones. Well, I was instantly disappointed when I turned on my first song. The music sounded very cheap compared to my Bose headphones. There wasn't any supporting bass either. These sound worse than the headphones that come with an iPhone. For all you out there who think these sound great do yourself a favor and try out a pair of Bose earbuds. You will be surprised at how much you're missing out on. I will be waiting for the Bose wireless earbuds to come back in stock and I will be purchasing those instead since I actually care about the quality of my music.

poor quality Posted by: from: on i recently purchased my second pair of these headphones from Best Buy. My first pair lasted about 14 months before they stopped working. Bought a second pair, stopped working after 17 days. Unfortunately i chose to go to customer service at Best Buy and was told they wouldn't exchange them because it was more than 14 days afterward. After waiting through the customer service line, then was told to wait in GEEK Squad line. After waiting at Geek Squad Line, they verified that they did not work and they told me I was out of luck because I didn't buy the extra warranty from Best Buy on already $139 headphones. I was told they could fill out paperwork and maybe send them back to Apple, but that was a lot of work, and told me to go the Apple Store to see if they could do something for me. This experience was infuriating and will not return to Best Buy. These headphones are also not reliable, as this is my second pair inside of 15 months and both had same issue.

Great headphones, not great price Posted by: from: Montgomeryville, PA on The first pair I bought worked for 2 uses then the battery stopped working. I took them back to Best Buy, and I exchanged them for a new pair. I'm glad Best Buy worked well with me for this transaction. The headphones are very comfortable. I use them mainly when I run outdoors. In this heat, I do sweat pretty good, and that doesn't seem to affect them at all. I put the headphone connecting cord behind my head so it rests on my neck while I run. Most of the time I cannot even tell it is there. The headphones fit very well on my ears. The only issue I seem to have when I run is the amount of wind I hear coming through. Other than that, the volume is great and the sound quality is great. The reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because of the price. They are usually on sale for $149, but even at that price I wasn't willing to give in. I was able to get them on sale for $99 and am thrilled I made the choice to purchase these headphones. I did a lot of research on many wireless earbuds and most of my searches led me back to wanting to buy this pair. I have been VERY happy with this purchase!

Great Sound Posted by: from: on I was a bit sceptical about buying these due to the negative reviews. Bought these when on sale at half price. Glad I did as once you have figured out the correct ear tip & fit, the sound is great. I almost gave up on these until I put on the largest ear tip and inserted them at an angle into my ear. Once you have a good seal & fit you will appreciate the great sound from them. Also they stayed in place just fine when working out. Just have a bit of patience with them!

Better than expected Posted by: from: Columbia, SC on Had read a lot of reviews bashing these headsets. Took advantage of a Best Buy sale and picked up a pair. So far haven't been disappointed. Used them for music, movies, and phone. Have had no major issues and meets the expectation I've had for wireless headphones. Fit is decent, and multiple options on ear pieces. Have had them on during long hours landscaping work in 100 deg heat, and exposed to sweat and so far they have held up. Haven't run with them yet but have used them for working outl and again no major complaints of yet. Will update the review if anything gross occurs over time. Easy to pair with iPhone, Mac Book, iPad. Range from source without cutting out is avg but why are you going to be that far from your source of music or movie to begin with. Sound is good on both music and tv/movies, then again I'm not too picky. Definitely one of the better wireless headphones I've had in both fit, use, and sound quality.

The Truth about Beats Posted by: from: on I go to the gym, so ear buds and music are important for me to listen to so I can get that solid pump. I have always been curious about the powerbeats and saw these on sale for $100. After trying them out for a while, I can say they are definitely good wireless earbuds. They serve their purpose of being an effective wireless sound system that do not move out of place and produce great quality sound. However, that is not to say they are perfect. I think for a product that retails at $200 it is a little absurd that the powerbeats do not have an automatic off function so if I don't use them for a few minutes, they can turn off and conserve some battery power. Also, I think that the fact they cannot remember volumes from being powered on, is also a minor annoyance. The power button is also too flushed in with the ear buds and makes it harder to figure out where I am pushing the on/off button. Don't get me wrong, i still very much enjoy these earbuds, but for $200 they would definitely be overpriced and even at $100, I think they are about $25 overpriced. But, for what it is worth, they still are a good quality sound system, especially if you are trying to cut the cord.

These Are The Bluetooth Ear Buds To Buy Posted by: from: on I was really torn between buying these and the Skullcandy XTfree bluetooth ear buds. I didn't love the look of the Powerbeats very much, and thought that the Skullcandy's looked really cool. Reading reviews and doing some research, though, I decided that the Beats were probably the better option. So glad I made that decision. Some people have complained about the ear buds not holding up - I haven't had any problems at all. I wear them to workout at the gym, while running outdoors, at work and have even worn them while mowing the lawn. They're great for making phone calls too. I sweat a ton and haven't had any issues there. I usually charge them about 1x/week with several hour-long workouts and random listening in between each charge. Honestly, no complaints at all. I love these ear buds and they go with me everywhere.

AWESOME Quality. Very recommended! Posted by: from: on I got these Powerbeats headphones about a month ago, and they have been awesome. The music quality is great with very good base. They compare to Bose. The headphones are sweat resistant, so it will be safe when exercising. They are also adjustable so they are for all sizes. Overall I would recommend this product!
