Rated 2 out of 5 by Papi_OSO powerbeats are great as long as you don't sweat too hard or play rough
I ordered these bad boys thinking I was gonna get in the gym and not worry about my headphones dying on me. I've gone through various other brands during deployments but the beats seemed like a smart choice. My soldiers can't be wrong, They were, I start sweating and it caused a short in my mic. I not one for babying things like head phone but since I did pay $150 I tried my best to take care of them yeah they are not very durable. the back and forth to the gym in and out of the case and my bags the logos did not stay on for long. Excellent choice if your a non-sweaty athlete and you can really care for them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by vigonzalez2009 Frustation
I dreamed of these headphones but unfortunately not what I expected. Their sound is excellent but in a year I changed 2 times. The microphone is damaged easily and the remote control is not working properly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by runnersjw76 Quality is of poor standard
I've had two earphones, one replaced because after it got sweat on it, it stopped working. Now after a few months with the second one, the left earbud no longer works. These headphones for the price are not worth it. If you plan to run and workout and know you will get sweat all over them, they will eventually fail on you. Buy another product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nobuko Controls on cord do not work
I have had these earphones for approximately 3 weeks, always good about keeping in the case. After a few times of use, would cause my iPOD to start reading off the song and playlist multiple times as I worked out, has finally stopped doing this, but now cord controls have stopped working completely. For $150 I guess I would have expected more, especially since they are fairly new. Also own Solo Beats, while sound is good as well, find the quality of the product is severely lacking.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pharil22 Must Purchase a Warranty plan of some sort if purchasing
Overall I like the Fit and comfort of these over the Ear/in ear headphones and the sound is great. just a dissapointment that the inline control for volume and ect... Is very unstable with sweat when working out. I will be exchanging mine for the 3rd time If i didnt have the replacement plan I would be totally upset being that ive had these for only 3 months and on my 3rd pair!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by edp form over function disappointingly
I spent £110 at the airport on way to holiday in order to have a decent sound whilst running training for half marathon. the sound is superb! and when just sitting around the headphones are great but no matter which earbuds i used the buds just dropped out of my ears within 1000m running. Simply not fit for purpose sadly. now an unused expensive box on a shelf, very dissapointed

Rated 2 out of 5 by MissingTheBeat Excellent Sound poor Durability
Recently upgraded to the PowerBeats when my UrBeats no longer worked after a year and half. Was looking forward to using my PowerBeats during my workouts. They offered great sound and comfort. When running the PowerBeats stayed in place and did not fall out as my previous Beats. Unfortunately the volume rocker no longer worked after a week and half. Returned them in exchange for a new pair. Within three workouts the volume rocker no longer worked on my 2nd set. The PowerBeats are described as sweat resistant, but found that is not the case and will return my 3rd pair in as little as two weeks. I would not recommend these for working out as they cannot withstand vigorous workouts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by House The earbud split in half after 1 month..
Great sound and operation features for 1 month. Then the earbud split when I pulled it out of my ear. Glad my adult children purchased the extended warranty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HardRock This product needs to be more durable to protect from sweat.
I bought this product in July 2013. I am a runner and needed headphones that would stay in the ear. This product provided good sound and comfort, but the remote stopped working and I could not control my music. Also, sometimes songs would change automatically. It could be because the product does not have good protection from sweat. If Beats improved the durability of this product, I would recommend it to others. I just contacted the warranty department and they were helpful. I'll see what happens next.
