    Beats by Dre - Powerbeats3 - Refurbished

    This is a review for the Powerbeats3 - Refurbished from Best Buy I get these reward certificates and discount coupons from Best Buy, so after reading the reviews, I saw that it was on Sale ($80.00) I jumped on it and used by $10 reward, plus 10% certificate, which came down to a really good deal at $63.00 When i received the earbuds, they actually looked new and untouched. I tested it, registered to see if it was genuine and then updated the firmware to the latest. Everything checked out as positive and genuine. After using it for about a month, (I use it to go running) it is a solid ear piece that doesnt fall off. The audio is good with lots of bass. The battery life is good, about 2 or 3 days for me till it needs a full charge. Last thing, because of the many reviews where it breaks so easily, I decided to buy the 2 year protection plan where if anything happens - Geek Squad/Best buy will replace it with no questions. Being it a delicate and sensitive device, I went with to make sure that it will last long for me. Overall, a good purchase, no regrets and would do it again.

    New the cost was 199. I got them certified refurbished for 85 dollars. They work great and same warranty as new. I had the power beats 2 and used them 6x a week at the gym for little over year until the cap of the volume button came off. Warranty was out. So I couldn’t return them or had them repaired without a charge. I tried the other brands that hold inside the ear like the jaybirds and they are extremely uncomfortable. To me at least they were. I returned them and got these instead. Oh btw I bought the jaybird equivalent on price the the power beats 3 that are 199 dollars. Hands down the power beats in my opinion feel better. Hold and just sound better. But to each their own.

    These headphones

    Ok I was a little skeptical to how long these headphones could last on a single charge however after using them for a week now they've held up to their claim. They do last for close to 12 hrs. I've yet to actually time it but I use it throughout my work day as my go to headphones to play music and to take calls and they've lasted all of my 9 hr work day plus the 2 hrs I commute each day. They really are impressive! For the sound quality they really aren't anything special. They sound as good as any other non noise cancelling headphones. However they are still really good. Their cordless feature and insane battery life have more than made up for it's short comings. I also bought them referbished and they seemed almost new. Only the box would even give away the fact that they aren't new.

    I had a very easy going and convinient experience shopping here on my best buy account online. I already knew what it was that I wanted so the steps were pretty simple from there. I just got online and signed into my account and searched up the item it was that I wanted and in this case happened to be beats by dre Bluetooth headphones and I placed my order ans waited patiently tracking my order till it arrived.. I was more than exited when it arrived. Set up the Bluetooth to my phone and from there had my music everywhere I wanted with me. Like my escape from reality. Whenever the day would be overwhelming I would just put on my headphones and from there was in my own world zoning out everything around me. Very pleased with my experience.

    This is the first thing I've ever ordered from Best Buy and it's surpassed my expectations. I've read reviews saying that only the Beats are shipped without anything else so that's what I expected. But they came in the actual box with a Beats charging cable and carrying case with extra ear pieces! The sound quality is superb. I read more reviews saying that they cause pain and are uncomfortable to wear but the best thing to counter that is to experiment with different ear pieces, the ones that come with the beats. The Beats came with a 90 day GeekSquad warranty and a return slip but so far I've had no problems. A great refurbished buy at an amazing price.

    They are worth the money

    At first I was skeptical about getting the refurbished ones. But I didn't feel like dropping the 200$ price tag at the same time. I rolled the dice and gave these a try. They came in less than a week. They look brand new never used and so far are amazing. Don't listen to what other people say about them being garbage. They sound amazing, and great for working out. I've only had mine for less than a week and never had any problems with them yet. I'll keep you updated and leave another comment if there are problems that happen

    I was looking for a good wireless earphones because of my job, I have to move between things and wearing my phone (iPhone) earphones could be a huge problem. I decided to buy this refurbished Powerbeats3... it was a good decision because I didn’t want to spend so much money in something I haven’t used before, but after a few weeks of using this product, I can say refurbished products are almost the same as regular. The earphones work great, are confortable after a couple days of use, the battery lasts, whit average use of calls and music, more that 12 hours one charge, controls work well, and Bluetooth range or radio is pretty great, packing was good and delivery time too... I’m so satisfied

    These are my newest & best set todate. Absolutely love these Refurb, cant even tell they are not brand new, if can afford brand new, then go for it. Hands down, best sound quality & battery life. I believe the issues they have lies in the controller, so I set it once, then I control thru phone, then they are no issues. They still cut in & out once in awhile but turn off & back on & good to go. (One small thing not to do is when I hung them around my neck not in use, I hooked the ear hook together, (don't do), cause after time it will start wear down ur hooks, u'll see scratch & marks & start go apart.)

    Being new to the wireless earphone tech, I was hesitant to spend $199 on a new set of PowerBeats 3 however when I saw the great selection of refurbished colors I knew the price was worth trying them out. I was not disappointed, the quality was “like-new” with all accessories and easy to connect. Sound is good and clear but I wish they’d be a tad bit louder. The battery life is amazing, charge these once every three weeks with daily use. These are great for running and basketball shootaround. Great product, try refurbished if you are equally skeptical, you won’t be disappointed.

    I'm not one to buy things just because they're name brand items so I was hesitant to buy these thinking the hype was all due to the maker but I was wrong. These earbuds are awesome! They're comfortable, they have really good sound (which I was nervous about because I'm functionally deaf), and they have great bluetooth range. The other day I rode my bike to the gym and was working out at the back of the gym. When I went to look for my phone to change what I was listening to, I freaked out. I'd left my phone hooked to my bike and I didn't know because the sound quality felt as though it was by my side, no static, no skips, no nothing. It was worth the money.

    So, I love Dre, but I was in the fence on Beats in general. Some mixed reviews, but I work out daily now and really wanted a nice set of headphones. These are easily the best sounding ear pods I’ve ever had, and I’ve gone through a lot, some big names, some cheap (but reputable) off brands, and none of them compare to these. The only two slights I have are that the controls are on the left ear (not the right, like most others I’ve had), and the power button seems, to me, to be hard to turn on/off (but, I’m a big dude, so it may be a case of big hands?). Would completely recommend them, tho..,

    Nice Bass

    I bought these refurbed off Best Buy for $72, during the 2017 Black Friday shopping season. Since they rock the Apple W1 chip, paring with an iDevice was short, simple, and sweet. The sound from these earbuds is really good. In typical Beats fashion, emphasis is placed on bass/low end, which isn’t a bad thing. My use for these earbuds was for working out, and listening to music/podcasts/YouTube whil on the train to work, so I didn’t need anything mind blowing. I also wouldn’t pay the $200 full price for these, either. Regardless, if you can get them on sale, these are worth picking up.

    I waited a looooong time to get on the Beats train, but I'm glad I finally did. I especially love these powerbeats, because for some reason "normal" ear bud style headphones don't like to stay in my ears. The over-the-ear hook combined with using the best fitting ear piece for me is a fantastic combo that stays in during all activities, and once you go Bluetooth, you'll never go back. The FastFuel (quick charge - charges 1 hours worth of use in 5 minutes of charging) is an amazing feature for those times you forgot to charge, or used them all day and need to squeeze in that extra bit of your day.

    These are my first pair of wireless headphones so I am kinda biased about that part but I think they perform really well there. Great battery. But as far as sound quality I have much experience there. I don’t like the bass these have. I literally have to adjust my equalizer for minimum base because these put out a lot— but not in a good way. It’s like “fake” bass. I forgot about that after one day and don’t think about it anymore. I just love them! Very Easy to use

    This is the second pair of refurbished Power Beats 3 I've purchased from Best Buy. The first set lasted about 3 years of heavy daily use. I would not say they were exposed to the elements , but they were used daily for several hours a day. The refurbished price can't be beat for these quality ear buds. Some do not like the hook that goes around one's ear , but it does keep them solidly in place when wearing them during exercise or outside work.

    Only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is it came without the charging cable, so it took a few more days to see if the headphones even worked. They charge quickly, charge seems to last for about 11 hours, just shy of the 12 the product claims to last for. Good sound, several different in-ear size options. If you wear them correctly, really can't hear anything other than the music. Works great for work outs. Update: BestBuy provided a $25.00 gift card to purchase the missing part.

    Although the shock yellow color wasn't quite as "shocking" as I was expecting, I was more than happy with the quality of the sound of these headphones. In comparing them with my wife's set of Powerbeats3, which were purchased brand new, the sound quality is identical. These headphones so far have held up well with use during exercising (biking , running, etc), and have not shown any sign of battery wear/deterioration. For a refurbished product, I couldn't have asked for a better deal!

    This is my first pair of Bluetooth headphones. I've been using them for around 2 months now, and I couldn't be more satisfied. Initially, they wouldn't stay in my ears. After adjusting the rubber pads to a smaller size, they fit perfectly and stay in place. The sound quality produced by these headphones is great for earbuds. Music, videos, and calls all sound great! I will continue to use Beats products.

    So far only had these headphones for a week and they sound great,also in perfect condition for a refurbished product! Im on android so I got these two app to make the sound better and to tell me how much battery was left. (In pic) all I need now is some memory foam tips. Last headphones I owned was airpods and they wouldn't work properly with android.

    I recently purchased the refurbished Beats by Dre Powerbeats 3. The sound quality is awesome and the value can’t be beat. I was kinda hesitate to purchase refurbished items but I could not be happier with this purchase. The product was practically new with everything in blister packaging. I’ve purchased brand new Beats headphones and I can’t tell the difference. I will definitely recommend.
