    Extremely Durable

    I bought these mainly because the Apple lightning earpods are literally designed to break with thin wires and most bluetooth earbuds on the market right now are just pretty ugly. These earbuds have thick and flat wiring which have yet to crease or hurt any wiring as well as they are super easy to untangle. It comes with a multitude of different ear pieces and i have had trouble finding some that stay in my ear perfectly, but i also might just have weird ears. I accidentally sent these in the washing machine and dryer and still work perfectly. It was a miracle because I doubt they have any waterproofing. Obviously, they are Beats, which means mediocre sound with a big price tag for the name, but the sound is actually quite nice, especially for earbuds. They have minimal bass(as you would expect) but they do have really clear vocals and nice instrumentals. They also do not bleed sound out so if you like destroying your eardrums with loud volumes, no one else will have to hear your music either.

    I was looking for a decent pair of headphones that I wouldn’t have to keep replacing. I came across these urBeats so I decided to give them a try. The sound on these headphones is good. Perhaps I expected them to sound a little bit better than they do, given the name, but by no means, do they sound like a cheap pair of headphones either. I like the shape of the wire, it’s flat which helps a whole lot with keeping the wires from getting tangled. The buds themselves are magnetized and they stick together when not in use which also helps the wires from getting tangled. I also like the little rubber case that holds the headphones when I’m not using them. It’s nice to have something for them that will keep them neat and clean. These urBeats come with quite a few different size rubber tips, so they can accommodate lots of different size ears. The color. I absolutely love it. It matches my iPhone nicely. Overall, I’m happy with my purchase.

    Good sound quality for under $50

    I wanted to get another set of headphones for work as an alternative to my aging iPhone headphones, and to get used to the lightning connector instead of a traditional headphone jack. The sound quality is much better than I expected considering these are the lower-end Beats. Even without anything playing, they're able to muffle out some surrounding noise. Comes with lots of ear tip varieties - both in size and style. They stay on fairly well while I'm working out, but I prefer the JLab Pro Signature bluetooth headphones as far as fit and comfort for more active use. Love the little carrying case and that the ear buds are magnetic. It's these small extras that make it seem like a luxury product. I got these when they were on sale for $40 and after a $10 Best Buy credit, they were a steal for ~$30.

    This was a difficult purchase because of the mixed reviews. I found the sound to be pretty on point. The biggest gripe I read was “the sound isn’t loud enough”. Well, it took some time but once I found right size, the sound was good for earbuds. It does take making sure that the seal is tight in the ear canal, but once that happens you’re set. Only reason this isn’t a 5* review, is for the fact that it’s only been a few weeks and opportunities to use them. Haven’t put enough “miles” on them yet to give 5. Will update at a later date

    I bought these just to have as a go-to when the wireless buds are unavail. Considering the rating I thought these may be a good purchase. But dang, these earbuds are overly hyped. Even at the sale price of 37$ they are not worth it. The sound is simple and basic. Even adjusting EQ there was only the slightest punch of bass. The build quality is questionable for the music remote and lightning port. I've owned the Sony MDRXB50 for several years and they have a superior sound compared to these. They even have a better build quality. With that said, these Beats are going straight back to the store.

    Purchased a pair of Beats as a Christmas gift for my wife and son. Of course bought them when they were on sale, I would have never paid regular price! I’ve owned other Beats products and had issues with some, which is expected. However the headphones and ear phones worked out so far. My wife owned a few and has been happy with the latest pair. Only down side is you can’t charge your phone since the port is being used by the earphones. Would be nice if an adapter was included, especially at the ratail price of these!

    Not Worth 100$$$

    I purchased these earbuds to listen to hip hop, knowing beats are known to overemphasize their bass. To be fair, the bass is pretty decent, at best. Everything else is quite atrocious, as vocals are quite poor and sound as if the artist is underwater. At 70percent volume, the leading instrumentals become tinny, making it impossible to listen music at a high volume. The four ear tips are a nice addition. Overall, these earbuds are not worth the steep price point at 100$

    I don't know why I ever decided the wireless Beats earbuds were for me. Those are complete garbage that are horrible when trying to run/jog. Not only did they not sound good but they barely stood in my ears. They also broke within 6 months which led me going back to these which are tried and true. These fit comfortably in my ears and the sound is superb. Yes, it is not cordless but sometimes having a cord attached is not all that bad. Would highly recommend these to anyone.

    Earbuds sound great, just a little bit heavier than the original 3.5mm headphone jack type, maybe due to the new magnetic feature, which is kinda nice, fit and quality of the cables and cans/buds is excellent, as with all Beats products, highly overpriced for what you get, but with a lack of earbuds that plug directly into a lightning port it's one of the only options, also means not having to carry or possibly lose an adapter.

    Sound is great, fit is great, and I got these on sale for $40 so it didn’t damage my wallet. I guess I wasn’t paying much attention when I bought these so it was a pleasant surprise to also get the case, extra sizes for earbuds, and the wingtips, and three months Apple Music for free. The shipping was extremely fast too!

    Perfect for any person looking for a nice pair of wireless headphones. I love that they are compatible for the Apple lightning port because you don’t need to use the adapter. Comes with multiple bud sizes and the wrap around ear part, which works great for working out. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone looking to upgrade their wired headphones for better sound.

    If you are familiar with the BeatsX, then you will be familiar with the overall sound of these earbuds. Really good sound (good bass) and good build. I love the lightning connection so I don't need to look for my 3.5 to lightning adapter to listen on my iPhone. They are light and comfortable. I like using the wingtips to make a more secure fit in my ear. Overall, a good buy

    Bought these on deal of the day from Best Buy for over half off and they work great. Bought for my daughter as a birthday present and she loves them. They come with three addition ear bud tips so they fit practically any size ear. My daughter typically only uses over the ear style because she has small ears but this has a size that fit her perfectly and don’t bother her. Great product.

    If you're looking for in ear buds that connect with lightning cable these are fairly good. The bass is there but its nowhere as bad as the OG beats was. The treble is recessed along with the mids for the bass though. For $59.99 when I purchased these they aren't bad and a step up from the earpods. I have better headphones then these but I needed a semi decent pair to use while going to work.

    Sound is amazing on these beats earbuds. Very crisp and no one else can hear your music around you. Only gets a 4-star because the bass quality is rather low compared to the beats3 wired headphones. If the bass quality was more prominent, then they would be 5-star. However, for the price I got them, they are amazing!

    I wish this color was available for standard headphone jacks, I bought them for my daughter not realizing they were for Apple products only. They’re great, but she doesn’t have an iPhone so I had to exchange them. Pay attention to the words “LIGHTNING CONNECTOR” in the title since I missed it lol

    I bought these for my daughter and unfortunately will be taking them back without taking them out of the box! They look nice and well packaged but she felt the lightning connector will limit how she will use them so back they go. I recommend if you only have all of your devices with the apple connector.

    I have some other headphones I use at home. But on my Harley, which is very loud, I cannot hear any other headphones. I tried Bose, Even B & O which have amazing sound but not enough volume to hear at 40 or above. When you need loud with a lot of bass, these are the only option really.

    They have decent sound, but if you are listening to any music with bass, you have to practically push them all the way in your ear to hear it. But for just general sound they are nice. I love that they have the lightening adapter at the end so I don’t need the extension for my iphoneX
