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 used these before the pandemic for my bus commute. On sale they offer a great value. Sound is great and the best part is I did not have to worry about charging yet another device. The non tangle wire and magnet makes it easy to live with. They also fit so much better than all other apple options.
If you need headphones for workout, you may want to consider length of wire for your needs. My use was purely for a commute.
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.
First of all I love this brand second this color was not available in the store but it was available on line with a huge selection of colors this is the color I really wanted and they matched the price. Best Buy you are the best.
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.
