    I’m not too fancy with sound quality but I do hear the difference between Apple EarPods, and basically any other in-ear headphones out there. I have nice Sony ones that were $29.99, but the treble seems too high for it. I wanted to have headphones that don’t require a dongle adapter and definitely didn’t want to use the ones that came with my iPhone 8- pure crap, Dollar Tree sound quality, in fact. With that said, I was hesitant to get these headphones at 34, because I feel like they’re for younger people. However, I will say, for the price they’re really good. The ear piece that was the default size was perfect for my ear and they sound very good to me. I would give them an A. I do have Bose with my laptop and in my car, so I know a little about sound quality. They’re a big improvement over what you get out of the box. Yes, you do hear the headphones when you’re moving and the music is off, but that’s not really a big deal when you have the music playing you don’t hear the movement noise. I would suggest Beats changes the shape/style of the cord to help reduce that noise. It’s not that big of a deal to not warrant the purchase. The point of these are music and they sound great. Give them a try, they may impress you. I love that I no longer have to use a headphone dongle adapter anymore nor the Apple EarPods that came with my iPhone- well worth the price! I like them a lot!

    Surprisingly good sound

    I purchased these headphones just to leave in my car so I would always have a pair handy. I got the urbeats collection series which has the same beats 3 wired (lightning in my case) as the original, but this one has ear wings and a case for 10$ less, so pay attention to which you buy cuz free stuff for less is better! The fit is pretty good. I’m not going to pretend I’m some workout junky and talk about how they never fall out. I use them for 20-30 minutes at a time when I’m waiting in my car or eating a dinner without my wife. I can tell you they are very good for that scenario. They don’t cause headaches or strain from listening for that amount of time and I turn up the music to a good clip. The sound does have that “charteristic beats bass” sound. So if you are listening to classical or trying to sleep, you might want to look elsewhere. But if you like dance, pop, rock, 80s (my choice), or top 40, you will be able to enjoy your music a lot. I don’t listen to metal or hard rap so can’t evaluate for those. But they have plenty of bass for those types of music. I was able to get them on sale for a tiny $40, and at that price, a steal! They are easily 60$ headphones, and I would have still been pleased with their performance at that price. Once you go past that, I’d start to think other phones. I also purchased the pioneer rays plus (the 129, not the 99 ones) and if you have a bit of extra, I’d pony up for those instead. But if that’s higher than you want to go, you will certainly be happy with these.

    Wireless, wireless, wireless it send that is all anyone wants to talk about these days. Since Apple’s elimination of the headphone jack with the IPhone 7 it seems that wireless headphones is all that people want to read about. The dongle that comes with the latest iPhones is just not cutting it for people. The answer is these Beats headphones with Apple lighting connector. With these you have great sound quality and the durability and dependability of a wired connection

    These ear buds are amazing, usally I Buy skull candy but I got sick of replacing them so I tried these and I intend to stay with them. They fit comfortably and once I put them in and play music I can’t hear the outside world at all. I listen to rap, rock and metal and they are great for all these. The best is with the real bass hungry songs as they hit those notes perfectly with the volume all the way up;no distortion at all. Worth the money.

    this newer version of the beats3 works impeccably with iPhone X and plugs directly into the lightning pin plug, so no need to buy an extender to use with your case secured iPhone. Love the sunshine color and the sound is wonderful! Highly recommended. I liked it so much I bought another to keep in my backpack for a spare.

    I got these to hold me over until the powerbeat pro’s come out. Definitely worth the money. I use them to work out frequently, and haven’t had any issues with them falling out or with the sound quality.

    Our 17 year old son requested these and loves them. He says they are the best earbuds for iPhone users. Great sound and durable. They have survived 2 trips through the washing machine and dryer!

    these headphones are really great and relatively inexpensive. It’s $30 to get standard lightning headphones but believe me these are totally worth the extra $30

    The price was right and they didn't come with extras that I would just lose anyway. If the cord was a tad longer, it would be better for using on treadmill. No real complaints.

    These are great! They have the lightning connector already so that's awesome. I think they sound great,but will get a little echo at high volumes

    I purchased as a gift and it went over really well. For use during transit on the train, definitely helps drown out some of the noise from other passengers.

    These are perfect. Small and sound great. Many reviews claimed they were not worth the money just the brand name inflating their value but they are worth the money.

    Works as described. I typically wire in for flights and this was a great option for my iPhone so I don’t have to have the adapter.

    I have had no issues with the headphones, price was about avg and the quality seems very good. They provide a few interchangeable ear pieces for sizing.
