    So far, meh...

    Pros: The sound quality is good. The secure fit earhooks really help keep them in place far better than the previous 3 true-wireless headphones I tried and returned. Battery life is good, so far, although it’s only been about 2 weeks of usage. For indoor gym workouts, they’ve been great. Cons: I went for a run outside last weekend and my sweat must’ve caused them to malfunction cuz I noticed the volume suddenly decrease on its own. That was strange. And a feature I’ve found to be annoying is that they won’t turn on or connect to my iPhone unless they are within one inch from physical contact. Therefore, I can’t have my headphones on my ears with my iphone in my pocket or even in my hand, and turn them on. They also will not turn on unless I physically unlock my phone. If I forget and accidentally place my headphones over my ears before turning them on, placing the iPhone up against my ear will also not turn them on. Both the iPhone and headphones have to be in my hands, either touching or within one inch of contact for the headphones to turn on and connect. And even then, connection sometimes has problems. No other headphones I have owned have had this feature. Quite strange. But again, it’s more of an inconvenience than a problem cuz sometimes it can take a bit of effort to hook them around my ears just right to feel snug only to have to undo it all cuz I forgot to connect them first. It’s a strange feature that makes me question their technology acumen. So yeah, they’re “meh..”

    Issues with Android

    I bought these and returned them 2 days after purchase. The sound quality was great (I have an over-the-ear pair of Beats so I expected this), the volume and call controls worked flawlessly, the call quality was great, and the 12 hour battery life was the real selling factor. All of this is meaningless though as they would repeatedly drop the Bluetooth connection with my Galaxy S8. The longest I was able to get them to stay connected was about 30 minutes. When I returned them I was told that this is a common issue for Android devices and Beats wireless headphones. I replaced them with a pair of Tarah Pro wireless sport headphones (https://www.bestbuy.com/site/jaybird-tarah-pro-wireless-in-ear-headphones-black-flash/6289924.p?skuId=6289924). They have a 14 hour battery life, and the sound quality is better than the Beats. In addition, you can download the Jaybird app and it allows you to use a custom EQ (as well as many presets and community submitted configurations), connects to Spotify so you can access your music through their app, has a "find my earbuds" feature, and works with Google Assistant. The Beats were on sale for $119.00, and the Tarah's were $159.00, so they were more expensive, but the overall quality seems better and I'm almost 2 hours into listening to music with no issues. In addition, I was able to purchase Geek Squad protection for these and I couldn't do that with the Beats.

    Unimpressed in comparison to others

    First off I am a drummer and have used many In ear monitors and motion is what I truly need. I purchased these because I work outdoors and was in need of a wireless head set with the ability to talk on the phone while working. These are a let down. First the fit is truly lacking. The strap goes around the rear neck which when you sweat it creates friction and drags hence pulling on the bottom of the bottom of the ear piece pulling it out of the ear. The plastic over the ear does nothing to hold this I place it just keeps it from falling on the ground so I am continually placing it back in my ear. The only way I have found to fix this is place the strap in front instead of behind the neck which places the strap directly in my way of motion and looks rather ridiculous. Second the shape of the sound canceling pad is difficult for oddly shaped ears because it is fixed in place so any movement flexes the ear creating continual intermittent outside noise being allowed in. Third the Bluetooth wants to battle between my car for control then doesn’t want to sync and says it “can’t find it”. Overall the sound is fine, seems standard but sadly disappointed. As a musician I HAVE to hear and know what works and what doesn’t and these have let me down in all areas. For $100.00 I would recommend a pair of SHURE in ear monitors. 10x the head phones it just won’t make phone calls or I would have never purchased these. For active lives where you want quality fit and quality sound don’t get these, go to your local music shop.

    2 new pairs of Apple Powerbeats 2 were defective

    Posted
    GymGuy

    I purchased Apple Powerbeats 2 in February, 2016 at a cost of $150.00 for use at the gym. By April, 2017 the ear bud broke for no apparent reason. The ear bud simply broke off from the earpiece and was hanging by the wires. Apple replaced it at their cost. In August, 2018 the same breakage occurred with the replacement pair. I did not do anything to damage the ear bud and cannot explain why the ear bud was again dangling from the earpiece. Apple refused to replace the defective unit. Apple stated they would sell me a replacement for $116.00. I checked on line reviews of Powerbeats from another retailer and the same defect was claimed by other purchasers of Powerbeats . Based on my experience and the experience of other people complaining of the same defect, I would never pay $150 for another pair of any Powerbeat model. Anyone can purchase similar style of gym headphones for less than $30 with a great review and user rating, and guaranteed to work with iPhones and iPad Pros. At a cost of $30, they are disposable even if they only last a year. I have purchased 7 Apple products, from an iPad pro to a Macbook pro. I prefer Apple products but these headphones have a manufacturing defect and have a limited life in relation to the amount they cost at $150.

    Powerbeats3 worth <= $100

    This is my 2nd Powerbeats3 and i’d say it was worth the sale price ($99.99) since the sound quality, battery life/charge time, and comfort are nice, just wish they were louder like the over the ear beats. I’ve had this new pair a month so far and I still like how effortlessly it works with my IPhone. [I paid full price for my first pair of black/reds (bought from T-Mobile store) and the rubber split in the middle exposing the wires within a few months maybe due to the removable plastic slider piece sitting in the middle when I wear them, but you’d figure $200+ headset would last through mild daily use (I don’t use them to workout, just chillen to music and phone calls) but not those and I put them away neatly in its rubber case after every use.] If you see powerbeats3 for $100 or less they’re worth it but I wouldn’t pay more than that again since the durability is not worth the full price and definitely don’t use the little plastic slider piece (anti-tangle thingy). I would recommend to a friend that they only buy Powerbeats3 on sale @ >= 50% off current $199.99 price. I gave 3⭐️ for sound quality, battery life, and seamless IPhone connectivity (I might’ve rated more ⭐️ but volume isn’t loud enough and stock ear buds leave ears sore although ear hooks are comfortable) and —2⭐️ for high regular price tag and lack of durability based off previous pair (purchased from T-Mobile store)

    Cant Go Wrong

    So I'll be honest, this isn't the cheapest pair of wireless headphones out there, but this sure is one of the best. I have done my research, believe me, and I have spend hundreds of dollars of buying and trying and returning and countless hours on looking for a good set of headphones. I ended up with these and I'm glad I did. I use these mainly for working out, and as a grad student I also use them to listen to online recorded lectures. I can go about 4-5 hours using them before I start getting tired with them in my ear and by that time the around the ear hook starts to getting annoying, other than that I love them. One of the most important thing for me is fit and the ability for it to stay in my ear, and this stay put and they don't move. They have this double ridged ear pieces that do just that. I also found that when the wire is in the back it starts to get annoying, so I prefer the wire of be in front of my neck and its works perfectly. I mostly do running so I'm always moving and they don't even budge. The next most important thing for me, and it may even be more important that staying in my ear is the sound quality. This will be my 3 Beats headset, and I also have Beat in 2 of my cars, and the sound is incomparable at this price point. I mostly listen to RnB and Hip Hop and the sound is crisp and the base is deep. The batter life is also amazing, I have had them for about a month and a half and I use them moderately and I've only charged them 2 or 3 times. Another thing that I really liked was the W1 chip. As soon as I paired it with my iPhone, it synced with my MacBook Pro and my Apple Watch, just like that. That was pretty cool and I wish other things in life would sync that easily. So coming from someone who did the research and watched every youtube video about them, I would get them in a heartbeat. I got them on sale for ($149) which is a good deal, I think ($200) is a bit much so wait for a good deal and make sure you snag them!

    WASTE of money - and TERRIBLE service

    Bought for my son for Christmas in early November, they were never delivered. Called to check on my delivery, no one could find it. Only bright spot in this entire disaster was that Best Buy couldn't find it, so I was given the option to pick them up in store. Got them December 30th and guess what...they BROKE in less than 3 months. My son wears them to run or to the gym, and one day in early March they simply pulled apart. So, took them to Best Buy, who said they were out of warranty and refused to exchange them. Said my only option was to file a claim with Apple. Then, sent them to Apple who told me that they don't cover physical damage of their junk product, only internal damage. BUT, I could have them repaired for $100. Are you kidding met? That's how much I paid to buy this piece of junk in the first place. DON'T BUY THESE, WASTE OF MONEY. You better believe I'm filing a claim with the Better Business Bureau after this run around.Stand by your product, Best Buy and Apple!

    Nice style but bad sound quality and fit

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    For those of you looking to purchase wireless headphones for the gym, I would not recommend the powerbeats3. The style and look, is probably the best thing about them. The sound quality was ok. In order to get the best sound quality with a good amount of bass, you have to really dig them into your ear, which can be very uncomfortable and they do not stay in place so your constantly adjusting them. I value sound quality and comfort during my workouts, so I decided to return these and purchase the Bose Sound Sport headphones. These are GREAT. Superior sound quality and they stay in your ear. These are also super comfortable and I don't even feel like I'm wearing them. You do only get 6 hours battery life compared to the 12 you get with powerbeats, but the quality and comfort is definitely worth it. On a side note, I know Michael Phelps endorses the PowerBeats product but I'd be surprised if he actually wears it. My ears are a little bigger than average and stick out a little. The way the powerbeats over the ear mechanism is designed makes it impossible for the headphones to stay deep in your ears,(if you have ears that stick out more than normal) thus receiving poor sound quality. His ears are much bigger then mine so there is no way he's getting good sound quality. He might be one of those people that don't care about sound though.

    Pros of the 3's: 1. Battery life is much better than the 2's. New chip does indeed help. 2. Color. I liked being able to just by an all black pair of ear buds. Sharp. Cons of the 3's: 1. Tinnier sounding (not as rich and deep a bass quality-to my ear.) 2. Skimped on the case. The 2's had a nice zipper case. The 3's come with a cheap, open, rubber/silicone case. 3. Quiet. Listening to the same music on the same phone, I have to turn the volume up 3-4 more levels to reach the same sound level as my 2's. 4. They did away with the rubber cover on the USB port. Yes, that thing was annoying, but I found it to be a good protector against sweat. The USB port on the 3's is open and I tend to sweat while working out, so it's typically exposed to all this sweat now. 5. Volume rocker feels cheaper. The 2's had a better feeling rocker. It didn't feel as cheap and plastic to me. I worry about the long term durability of the rocker on the 3's. 6. Expensive. You get what you pay for, I guess. Seems like there might be some cheaper options with as good or better sound quality. All in all, not a bad purchase. Wish the sound volume and quality was up to par with the 2's. However, if you still like a more bass forward ear bud and don't mind the sticker shock, these will do. I've only had the opportunity to listen to two other wireless ear bud products, so I am, by far, no expert. I do love not having to charge these things 2-3 times a week like the 2's. Probably don't get a full 12 hrs, but I've yet to push them to the extreme. I've used beats since I purchased an HTC Rezound back in the day. Included was a pair of URbeats, which was my first exposure to the brand. Since that purchase, I've probably bought 3-4 pair of URbeats wired ear buds as well as now owning the Powerbeats 2 and 3's. So, I'm no hater. Def. a fan of the product. Wondered how things would go after the Apple purchase and it seems they've gone a slightly cheaper made route (outside of the new chip providing improved battery life).

    I have mixed feelings about these but most of them are good/decent. I love that these are wireless, and the sound is SO MUCH BETTER than the stupid apple ones you get w/your phone! And the battery life is decent on these (I don't really have anything to compare these to, since this is my first pair of wireless headphones). I like how they fit around and in your ear. For me they do start to hurt my ears after awhile (but that's just me, I don't know how others feel. I just think my ears are little more sensitive or something). But they are great for running and working out at the gym because they don't fall out of your ears. I really debated on if I should get another pair or not. I got these ones as a REPLACEMENT because my fiance had the exact same pair and brand (just diff. color) but they BROKE!! So it was really difficult to make a decision to either get another pair or get the new apple wireless ones. He was very disappointed they broke and he's not rough w/his stuff and had only had them prob a yr or more. If it wasn't for the great sound quality I prob. wouldn't have gotten another pair. So I'm hoping these ones won't break in a yr!!! So I guess I would still recommend these. And side note he didn't have the original box so I don't know if there was even a warranty and we didn't get any kind of protection plan or whatever from Best Buy (I can't remember if they even offered anything, but either way I know we didn't get it).

    I have used other bluetooth devices in the past, and the quality was ok. My last pair had one side stop working and then the other side shortly stopped after. I have difficulty hearing from my phone, so need to have earbuds for the sake of hearing a conversation. My friend has these and stated how clear he can always hear and I certainly can hear him very well when he is on them. I saw these on sale and decided to give them a try. I consider myself technically savy, but wished these would have come with directions on how to place them on my ears correctly :/ I probably looked like a dork the first week I wore them because I put them on however way I could, so there was a bit of a learning curve for me...lol. I facetimed my friend so he instructed me on how to place them on my ear with options forward or backward. They do cause my ears to hurt after frequent/long use, but that is an issue regardless of brands/types. I dislike having things in my ears. It would be nice if they could be used while charging, which they can't. It is hard for people to hear me occasionally when I only have one side in and the other side hanging because the cord is short it tends to fall to the back. I usually hook the other side on my shirt to keep it in one place when I am only using one earbud side. I tend to only use one side. The quality has been great. I hear exceptionally well, can be heard well, and they stay on my ear nicely. They charge quickly, and would say they hold a charge for a decent amount of time, but seems like it should be longer. They are very flexible making them easy to take wherever or grab and go! I would say that I am glad I got these and hope they last a while.

    Worthy Upgrade from my Powerbeats2

    I had a pair of Powerbeats2 previously and debated if this would be worth the upgrade. In brief, there are a few things that made the upgrade well worth the cost. First, the Powerbeats3 have Apple's W1 chip built in. This means that it connected seamlessly with my iPhone and my Apple Watch. Even better yet, I can see the battery percentage remaining on the Powerbeats3 through my iPhone. No more guessing if I have enough "juice" for one more run! Second, the battery life is at least double what it was on the Powerbeats2. I have not fully tested the 12 hour claim as I like to recharge them before it gets close, but the increase from the previous 5 hours on the Powerbeats2 is a tremendous improvement. Third, while the design is very similar to that of the Powerbeats2, for whatever reason, the Powerbeats3 seem to be more comfortable to me. They do not move when I am jogging (the over-the-ear loop does a good job of ensuring that) and are very comfortable to the point where, once I start moving, I do not even feel them in/on my ear. As with the Powerbeats2, the Powerbeats3 do not fully occlude external/environmental noise. They are not noise cancelling, nor do they attempt to isolate external/environmental noise. As I do a lot of jogging on streets and roadways, I actually really appreciate this as I can still hear the approach of cars/trucks as I'm jogging. The only reason I did not rate these headphones with five stars is because the audio just does not sound very "rich" to me. It sounds "tinny," like there is too much treble. I know a common complaint of Beats headphones has been that they pump up the bass too much. That is definitely not the case here and I am left wondering if they tried to compensate for those complaints and went too far the other way? Considering that I wear them almost exclusively for jogging outside, though, the audio quality is still acceptable for me.

    Great Headphones...While they Work

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    There are several positives to these headphones, and I loved them for the first couple of months of ownership. They do pair easily to your iPhone (though I don't find traditional Bluetooth pairing all that cumbersome). The range is great, so I can leave my phone anywhere in a large room and not worry about a loss of audio quality, and battery life appeared to be as good as promised. However, I have been through 3 pairs of these already and will be visiting my local Apple store today to get pair number 4 because of constant hardware failures. My latest replacement pair lasted less than 2 weeks. I use these primarily as workout headphones for use during strength training and running (30-60 minute workouts). Perhaps its the sweat that is causing them to fail, but they are billed as active wear headphones, so I feel like it is fair to expect them to hold up against normal sweat levels (especially since the product description from Apple states that they are sweat and water resistant for "tough workouts". The errors I have encountered are very consistent: they will work fine, then the volume will fall at some point to a complete mute and from then on I cannot turn them on to pair with any device (the power button just causes a red light to flash a few times). Considering the durability of these and the price point they are offered at, I would consider alternate brands if your primary motivation for purchasing these is to use them for any active pursuits.

    This is my third pair of Beats. The first pair started sounding weird 6 months in so I swapped them out, the second pair lasted just over 1 year, so I had to pay for this third pair. I used them to run and exercise 3-5 days a week. I always kept them in the case and one day one ear portion just detached from the speaker without warning. I think if you catch them on sale, it’s a decent price point for the comfort (I can’t stand cords and am finicky about what I put in my ears) and decent sound quality. I would prefer a louder pair of earphones, but I think that in the long run this volume max is actually helping preserve my hearing. If this third pair breaks, I will not purchase a fourth pair. I will just invest in a cheaper Bluetooth brand because they aren’t worth $200 if they only last a year. I can just keep buying the $20 sets of earphones for all that nonsense. I used to buy the $20 to $30 sets and thought that if I paid for the Beats I would get longevity and quality. The quality is arguable depending upon your bass/treble preference and they do not last long enough to justify paying $200. Long story short, don’t believe the hype of the name—it is seriously overrated; the sound quality is not all that. If you make plenty of money and have very few responsibilities then, sure—they are nice for working out and you can waste your extra money— but if you are financially tight and carefully saving for quality earphones I wouldn’t recommend you buying these pair, because they may not last any longer than a $20 pair and you should save your money for something with greater durability.

    I have owned the previous Beats wirelss among all 3 Pill bluetooth speakers so I am familar with what Apple has done with the brand..The last generation of headet (largely uchanged for this model the major change the massively bothersome Flimsy RUBBER PIECE that covered the charging port which was so tiny it made it hard to get out and seemed it could break off easily is now gone-this model has the outlet exposed-the main complaint I had and if you read any reiews of the the Beats 2,0 was the earpiece would snap off at the "neck" piece attached to the earpeice this happened to me and was an obvious defect as almost everyone had this occurs-I cant see any structual change in this update they look feel identical but would assume if Apple saw that many returns MAYBE these are stronger but be aware this was an epidemic on the previous version..The sound quality is the same for my phone calls-very clear and out of my 50+ headsets the only ones I habe had that never one person complaine dof my sound quality...the sound for music is great just like the previous generation if you lked it on that headset, the sound is balanced, dont expect much bass from an earbud but enough is present to satisy you. I do think these are slightly Lower or less "Thick" sounding though with music, I definetly setect less roubust sound or loudness, its slight so youmay not think the same but defiently no major blow you away difference in soound is present with these..I almost think your better paying less for the 2.0 version as the non-wired version of these like the Apple airpods are surely going to be coming out soon enough..although surely at a 200-250 prce level...Overall still the best bluetooth headset you can buy for multipurpose usage-just watch the earpeice be delicate

    I got these on a great sale during the holiday season. I have used them as my primary headphone for about 2 months and they definitely provide me with the sound quality I want. The deep bass provides a great listening experience while not overpowering the vocals and other instruments in the music. The bass also gives great energy while working out. The comfort is not the greatest as they are intended for fitness. This being said, I would expect them to stay in my ears very well, and they have not disappointed, although I do adjust them periodically. If you are wanting sound isolation, these do pretty well, but they do not block out all ambient noise until you have the volume almost all the way up and they are fitted to your ears perfectly If you have an iPhone or other Apple products, these are definitely worth the money. With the A1 chip they have great range and the set up is seamless

    I own the first version of the wireless beats and they were amazing! The only reason I needed to purchase a new pair is because the wires began to protrude outside of the cable casing(after owning them for about 3 years without ANY issues what-so-ever). Purchased the wireless beats3 and 2 months following began having issues. They wouldn't charge, even after attempting to reset them/all software was up-to-date. When they finally did light up again (randomly, might I add), I was able to charge them to 100%. I was at the gym and they randomly turned off mid work-out (with an 85% battery life left). This happened three days in a row and then the charging issue happened again. I expect a product that I paid $200 to work, not to turn off mid workout. What a waste of money. Luckily it is covered under the 1 year warranty. Regardless, this should not have happened in the first place. Please read the reviews on this product before purchasing. I did not, as I assumed they would work as well as my previous pair, which I was very satisfied with. Compared to the initial wireless beats, these are a defective product. Clearly, I'm not the only one who has had similar issues. The only positive difference is the sound quality is significantly better. Buyer beware!

    Where do I begin... Ok, so I purchased my first ever Dr. Dre BT earphones because I thought their price would justify their quality, durability, and overall performance. Boy was I wrong. First pair purchased from BestBuy, only after 6 months of use, would turn off after a minute of playback. I visit my local Apple store, and send them in for a replacement. The entire process takes about 2 weeks and they sent a product replacement due to the original product having a defective battery. I decided to give Apple and Dr.Dre the benefit of the doubt because, hey, stuff happens. Well, just yesterday, this new replacement completely died. I am talking about no responsiveness whatsoever. No response when plugged in to charge. Nothing. How does a less than a year old product die within months of use and with absolutely no other use other than listen to music, take them off, leave them on the table, and charge when needed. Please, please, please. Save yourself the ~$180. They are not worth it. They are cheaply build and do not last. You will be buying a disposable product which Apple nor anyone else, will take responsibility for.

    I needed a decent pair of headphones for a 12 hour flight. I’m glad my boyfriend pushed me to go for these! They’re wireless and rechargeable. It only takes two hours to charge them for 12 hours. I love that if you’re in a rush, a quick 5-minute charge can get you a full hour of use. PERFECT for the gym. (I’m not sure how accurate this is- but I’ve heard/read that you can leave these charging for longer than necessary and they won’t overcharge.) The battery life is great. I typically use my beats every day and only need to charge them once a week or less. The small cable that connects the two ear pieces is adjustable and never tangles. Comes with the charger (not the wall adapter piece) and a cute little silicone case to carry them in. I personally don’t tend to use the case but it’s nice to have. (I’ve never had a problem with my headphones being harmed otherwise.) The ear buds are comfortable and they never fall out, even during my workouts. The volume and play/pause is adjustable and accessible on the left side of the wire. They were simple to set up via Bluetooth and they connect instantly to my device when turned on. (A tone plays in the earpiece to let you know when they are powered on/off or need to be charged.) I really love these headphones. The sound quality is great. They were definitely worth spending $200 for.

    I've had mixed feelings about these since I got them, but I'm not returning them. They sound great, Beats has some of the best sounding headphones out there. What I don't like is the fit. They come with different sized earpieces, so you have to try out different sized pieces, but the problem is, once you pull one off and put a new one on, it's easy for them to fall off again. I've had them get stuck in my ear when I pull them off. One just came off in my bag, things like that. Small problem, but nonetheless, it's an issue I'm conscious of every time I take them off. The cord that goes around the back of your neck can be a pain too, it gets caught on my collar and pulls the headphone out of my ear sometimes, things like that. All in all, the sound of these is amazing, I use these to talk to people all the time, and they say I sound real clear on the other end. That's great. It's the fit and problems with ear pieces falling off that bugs me. If you get these, be aware, you may return them if they don't fit right. I'm going to check the "yes I would recommend this to a friend below," but my recommendation comes with an asterisk.
