    Weak Return on Investment

    I'll make this short and sweet. I bought these earphones to use with a Sony 40 series Walkman playing WAV files, not compressed MP3s. I found the Beats to be weak in the mid-range and had no bass at all. I was very disappointed. I didn't expect that they would measure up to my HiFi Man over the ears headphones or even my older Sony MDR-V6 on ear, but frankly they performed worse on a head to head comparison with the Apple earbuds that came with my old iPod and were much less revealing than a much cheaper pair of Sony MDR-XB50APs. All in all, I didn't think the Beats provided a very good return on investment compared to some cheaper alternatives. However, as everyone knows who has bought speakers, we all hear differently and appreciate sounds differently . The Beats my work for you, I just found them to be a bit less than average.

    Un"beat"able Quality

    I've purchased a handful of urBeats earbuds over the years for myself, and as gifts for family and close friends. The surround sound quality you get is like NOTHING I've ever experienced from any other brand than Beats. It feels like you're in the room with the musicians or experiencing a movie through the characters themselves. The bass is unbeatable, and for that I will continue to buy Beats whenever I need earbuds. The only flaw is that they seem to have a 2 - 3 year lifespan, judging by the three pairs which I have purchased for myself and the feedback I've gotten from giving them as gifts. I believe for the price, that's a short life, be that as it may, these do deliver LUXURY sound!

    I was looking for some headphones with a microphone to use with my iPhone. I love that the microphone, which is attached to the cord of the left earbud, is close to my mouth. Both earbuds are angled to fit snugly and comfortably into my ear canals. It even comes with different sizes of eartips, which worked perfect for me (one of my ear canals is slightly larger than the other). The sound is great. The clarity of my voice with other people is great (I tested it with a few friends and asked what they thought of the sound). I have only had it for a couple of weeks, so it's hard to say how it will hold up over time. *Tip - I store them in a used metal breath mints box so they won't get tangled or damaged in my backpack.

    Terrible Waste Of Money

    These are the most uncomfortable ear bud I've ever owned. The sound quality is horrible, and they keep falling out of my ear while I'm sitting down trying to play a video game. I haven't taken them to the gym with me because I would probably be more focused on keeping these in my ear rather than actually working out. I've tried each and every interchangeable ear piece that it came with and had no luck. Also, since they are "Beats" I thought these would sound great. These have to be the worst sound quality headphones ever made. Never again will I waste my money on a Beats product.

    USED THE PRODUCT FOR LESS THAT 2 WEEKS AND THE PLUG BROKE APART. THE PLASTIC INSERT WHICH HOLD THE METAL PLUG WHICH IS THE PART YOU INSERT INTO THE DIVICE BROKE APART, LEAVING HALF OF PLASTIC AND THE METAL PLUG STUCK INSIDE THE UNIT. UPON RETURN TO STORE, IT WAS REPLACE HOWEVER THE CLERK INDICATED IT WAS THE CUSTOMER FAULT AND THE STORE DOES NOT WARRENT DAMAGE ITEMS. I FELT THAT THIS WAS NOT DAMAGED IT WAS POORLY CONSTRUCTED. I PURCHASED TWO ITEMS AND CONCERNED THAT THE SECOND ONE WILL ALSO BREAK IN TIME.

    I'm used to wireless ear buds now a days and had a pair of beat up wired ear buds that I would use to listed to video no my laptop and they finally went out on me, I bought the Beats by Dr. Dre because the price was a great one and because of the price I didn't expect the best results from the earphones but I was wrong. They sound incredible and they met above my expectations for them.

    Best sound quality

    I’m a professional musician and bought these for the sound quality. Most people mention the bass is a little too much, but when you’re listening to Jazz, classical music or just piano solo these are great. Also the volume is a beast, without losing quality, need to say more? Cons: they will easily fall off your ears if you’re jogging or at the gym.

    I got these for my 14 year old son. He goes through earbuds like crazy, We don’t know if it’s him or the product. So for Christmas we decided to get him the beats. He has had no problem with them! They sound great, look great and don’t tangle since they have the magnetic backs. It is definitely worth buying these instead of $20 ones every couple months if that.

    First I was very disappointed that it did not come with a case, some things I’ve seen about these ear buds show a case but mine didn’t have one. On top of that I can’t get them to stay in my ear and I tried the different ear tips, I was able to get the left one to stay in but the right kept falling out. The sound quality seems very good from what I can tell.

    Great for bass music

    If you're into music that's bass heavy, these are for you. Great to listen to EDM or hip hop. Really brings out the bass and makes you feel like you're there! Almost feels as if it has noise cancelling earphones. Blocks out most of the external sounds for someone to really enjoy their music.

    Got this for my teen child for Christmas. Sound is great but has some issues. When connected to Android phone, the volume control buttons on the headphones are not operative. Also, earbuds are probably not for everyone. Either too big or too small, so had problems fitting.

    These are better than your $20 earbuds by far. Do not compare them to any audiophile buds please be realistic. Decent sound with durable wires. At fifty bucks they are respectable. If fashion is not an issue I'd go with sennheiser

    I needed a good in ear headphone for walking and working out and these beats were perfect. They stay in my ear without falling out. The sound quality is also extremely good. Perfect for the price

    Was in desperate need of earphones and got this one because of the reviews but I’m not impressed first because of the color( Black was all they had at the store I purchased it from) and the buds keep slipping out of my ears

    My kid uses all the time she love's them. So far I've not had any problems with them. We had them for two months with a middle schooler. So far they are hanging in there. I would recommended them. The sound is good for ear buds.

    Online Description different than description stated here! I purchased these earbuds with the understanding that they came with a case to keep them in, opened them when they arrived and there is no case! I hate to be lied to...

    Bought these for my 16 year old son to replace his original urBeats that he's had for 2 years, that he lost. He loves them and says they sound better than his original model!
