Rated 2 out of 5 by DFINDY00 Not durable
I got these for christmas and it is march and the silver plate on the side spins around a lot and i went through 5 pairs of earbuds, and the rubber cones that are on the plastic thing on the tip tears off in 1 week within use. It creeks when i touch it, And the logo on the silver plate came off it was like it was painted on with some wooden model paint. Other than durability the sound is good and it is a good product. Would I recommend this to a friend, No it is not strong and you would probably go through five pairs a year!

Rated 2 out of 5 by mem23 Please fix the connector
I had to return two pairs of these because of the same issue. I keep hitting the connector while working out because sticks right out. Eventually after a couple of days, the sound started to break and the headphones were useless. The connector for any type of sport/active headphones has to be L shape or right angle connector. I really wanted to like these headphones but until they don't come out with a right angle connector I can't buy them or recommend them

Rated 2 out of 5 by Amber24 These earphones will NOT stay in my ears.
I have tried all of the interchangeable earbud selections and cannot get these to stay on my head or in my ears. I had to get a headband to hold them to my head. I am assuming that my ears are smaller than the average, and the part that holds the phones to the head is not adjustable and just way too big. Likely made for the average-sized man. Since I need a headband to hold them to my ears, they end up sitting awkwardly and hurting me. That being said, the sound is great and I hope to exchange these for a pair of headphones that are more compatible to me!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shinner13 Uncomfortable/Hurting my Ear
The PowerBeats is an "OK" earphone. The only reason i say this is because when i first bought this, it was fine until i used frequently and my ear started to hurt because of the product. The inside of my right ear had red marks and dents because of the earphones and it made it really uncomfortable for me to use. I tried to adjust it a lot and when it does get to an comfortable state, i couldn't use it for long because the pain came right back. Also the ear buds don't really go straight into your ear canal which doesn't cancel out the noise outside and makes you really turn up the volume to hear the music clearly. I like the design and it really doesn't come off your ear but other than that, it was uncomfortable for me and i was looking more of an earphone that goes really into your ear and cancels most of the outside noises and focus on the music more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Runner Not made for sweat
I'm very disappointed with these headphones. I only used them for running. At most, a little sweat got into the volume control, and it stopped working. Conveniently it happened right after the one year limited warranty expired. No support given by Beats. Very sad I paid $149.00 for these. Now I have to go back to using my Bose earphones, which still work properly after 4 years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jcsmooth32 great sound and fit, horrible remote
I have had 3 pair of these powerebeats in 2.5 weeks, each time I wear them once and everything works great, but the 2nd time I go to wear them the remote control doesn't work and I have to take them back!! very frustrating because I love the sound and fit of them, but the remote was one of the key reasons for purchase. Beats, redesign this REMOTE and make it more sturdy!! For $150 I would think you could put out a better product then this!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed Broke After SECOND use
After plenty of through research on the Beats website, viewing YouTube reviews, word-of-mouth and consumer reviews (CNET, etc) I have been extremely let down by an inferior product. After the second time using this product, my birthday present has broken as the volume rocker and pause button have stopped working. This is pathetic that this product with this price tag is so poorly made. This was my first set of headphones from Beats, and my first replacement for my iPhone headphones. I will be returning this product for a refund and most likely purchase a competitor's product that actually works. I highly recommend no one purchase this product, and the replacement that I'm sure I would be offered will just break again (as you'll read on this site and plenty of others#. I knowingly took a risk using a product line that is notoriously cheaply made, and instead was naively swayed by popular branding. This is extremely disappointing; I am eager to purchase a competitor's product #a company who is no longer associated with Beats) as the durability of their product is consistently rated much higher. I was interested in purchasing the Beats Executives for my in-home listening; you can bet you lost that sale as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HATETHESEHEADPHONES DON'T GET THESE HEADPHONES
Terrible. I looked at the bad reviews before I got them, and decided to ignore them. I'm sure you are planning on doing the same. Don't ignore this though! Mine worked perfectly for a month, and I took great care of them. Then out of nowhere they start messing up. DON'T GET THIS PRODUCT.
