Beats by Dr. Dre urBeats³ Earphones with Lightning Connector
I bought the first set of beats because I wanted a set with the lightening connection so I wouldn’t have to keep buying an adapter for my set of Beats with the headphone jack that Ive had for over two years. They work just fine but I wanted to get away from the adapter. Whoa, shortly after buying the first set they started shorting out. I returned that set and got a second set. Now the second set has started doing the same thing. I had intended to return these the first of the week but something important kept me from doing so. I got this set on 9/9/2019 but it says the date to return them was 9/23/2019. Now I’ve got this set of earbuds that are not working. I don’t know why 2 pairs of the exact same earbuds as I have except for the connection being different ( headphone jack verses lightening connector) have shorted out so quickly after purchasing. I bought the protection plan so I’m hoping this will either allow me to get my money back or another replacement set. I bought the set with the headphone jack from QVC and they are still working fine. What is it with the ones I bought at Best Buy that they’ve messed up so soon after purchase. Does Best Buy sell seconds? Or is this the same product that QVC sells and I ejustgot a bad pair twice? I know that there’s always a chance of buying something that got by a quality check and it’s just not right, but come on two pairs that have gone bad just shortly after purchasing. Either I’m the most unlucky person shopping at Best Buy or something just isn’t right. Maybe there’s a reason the best price for these Beat earbuds was at Best Buy. Not sure what the problem is but I’m starting to wonder about purchasing anything else there. I added 2 pics, the earbuds and the Vera Bradley tech case they are kept in when not in use. The ones I bought at Best Buy didn’t come with a case like the ones I got from QVC.
I’m not too fancy with sound quality but I do hear the difference between Apple EarPods, and basically any other in-ear headphones out there. I have nice Sony ones that were $29.99, but the treble seems too high for it. I wanted to have headphones that don’t require a dongle adapter and definitely didn’t want to use the ones that came with my iPhone 8- pure crap, Dollar Tree sound quality, in fact. With that said, I was hesitant to get these headphones at 34, because I feel like they’re for younger people. However, I will say, for the price they’re really good. The ear piece that was the default size was perfect for my ear and they sound very good to me. I would give them an A. I do have Bose with my laptop and in my car, so I know a little about sound quality. They’re a big improvement over what you get out of the box. Yes, you do hear the headphones when you’re moving and the music is off, but that’s not really a big deal when you have the music playing you don’t hear the movement noise. I would suggest Beats changes the shape/style of the cord to help reduce that noise. It’s not that big of a deal to not warrant the purchase. The point of these are music and they sound great. Give them a try, they may impress you. I love that I no longer have to use a headphone dongle adapter anymore nor the Apple EarPods that came with my iPhone- well worth the price! I like them a lot!
Sometimes I just want to plug in a good set of headphones that are comfortable in my ear and sound amazing without having to pair them with my phone and go through all of the effort of waiting for them to show up on my bluetooth menu etc. These fit the bill. Plug them in and listen to great sound, and they are super comfortable on your ears. They are durable and well worth the price.
This is my 3rd pair because I don’t always wanna be looking for them. The sound is awesome, they are not as sound isolating as I had hoped though. (I can still hear my husband snoring). They fit best with the wing tips on, unfortunately this model does not come with them only the older model, so I use the wing tips from them. Overall I am very happy with them and they sound great.
I purchased to replace an older set of Beats earbuds. What I liked was the consistent sound quality, decent bass which was not over-bearing, great for pop music that I listen to. I also liked the soft earbuds, which makes for a better fit than the standard Apple Earpods and the lightning connector was a plus, no longer need to carry an adapter. What I didn't like was the cord noise. When there's no music, and you move, you can hear noise from the cord. Not much of an issue when you're listening to music, but it's problematic when making a call especially since the other party also hears the cord noise on their end. To be fair, sound quality is good if you're not moving, but the whole point is to be mobile. Needless to say, I am not going to be using this for phone calls. One other negative is that there's no carrying pouch, which was a disappointment since my previous purchases of Beats and other higher end brands included a case or pouch. Bottom line, great for music at this price point, but not for making calls.
These are my go to headphones while being stationary. They do not draw a massive charge on you phone’s battery life, and still give the power, clarity, and sound one is accustomed to with Beats headphones.
The analysis of all aggregated expert reviews shows that the reviewers are positive about usability, size, design and sound. Editors are less positive about treble quality and mids quality and have mixed opinions about noise isolation.

Beats by Dre's flashy in-ears embrace the Lightning ConnectorFull Review
A:Answer No they do not. The lightning connector makes them for later version iPhone users. In my opinion, instead of the normal aux jack, the lightning plug is far superior for sound quality, and also speech quality.
