Rated 1 out of 5 by Heath the Runner NOT FOR EXERCISE
The sound is unreal, however i bought them to exercise. once the slightest bit of moisture (mostly from sweating) gets into the click control it shorts and pauses itself and raises lowers volume randomly. By making a homemade moisture barrier it lasted a bit longer, 2 months at 4x/week use before the left earpiece completely shorted out. I traded it in under warrenty and the new pair does the same thing. WORTHLESS. Im taking them back and getting Bose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Musicman Horrible quality!!
Just as the other reviews say, these things quit working on the left side after 1 week. I didn't even work out with these at all. I found that it was shorting out at the jack, you can wiggle it a certain way and the sound would work. But seriously, pay that much for something to break within 1 week. Even the returns person at [...] said that there are so many returns/problems with them. Besides the sound, they're junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vinnie G Not worth the MONEY
Lost audio in right speaker after 5 months. Audio in the right speaker goes in and out. After all the money spent on these headphone the quality should be much better. Not worth the price tag at ALL!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hollywood Now Received My Third Pair from Warranty
I would not recommend this product to anyone. I purchased these headphone in May, 2011 and in July, I replaced them again by warranty and again in August. I regret wasting my money on this product. If it were not for the warranty, it would have been a totally loss. However, the warranty does replace them. However, the time of replacing the product leaves you without a set of headphones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jahangir do not buy these.
this was by far the worst pair of headphones i have bought. even the headphones u get free with an ipod have better sound quality. They helplessly hang from the ear when running, not for sports or outdoor as advertised. Worst product in the beats lineage. Every time i go out running with these on, the only thing i think about is how dreadful these headphones are and that buying these was a mistake.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ed Broke after 3 miles of running
I bought this because the IPhone headphones keep falling off while I'm running but after running ony 3 miles, I got a call and the microphone quit working. It had worked prior to this. I tried to use it several times and it still wouldn't work so I sent it in via UPS and I still have not received the replacement 2 months later. The excuse is that its backorderd. Can't I just get my money back?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Coach from the Bayou Wiring problems again :(
This is my second pair of PowerBeats and again their is a wiring problem. I have to wiggle the wire on the left Beats to get it to work and this is the second pair to do this. Very disappointed because i really like them but not happy that i can not return them or exchange them. Cant afford to buy anymore. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by djmel that didnt last 2 months
i had these head phones for less then 2 months and they shorted out on me just like all the reviews i read... my beats tours i had for 3 years that coming apart still works and lasted longer then these did... not worth my [$].

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mr. Fields Poor Quality Control
The fist time the left earplug wouldn't work. I got a replacement and now the left earplug is lacking quality. By these example and reading some reviews, I assure you that the quality control of the production line is unreliable, if there's any. I would advise people to look for another model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mikala1406 Not good for running
I am a Marathon-runner and was very excited when Beats came out with this model. In the beginning they were great: great sound and very comfortable. However, within a three weeks the button stopped working and within 6 weeks the left headset cut out. Don't know if it is because I got a "lemon" or they are "allergic" to sweat. Anyhow, given what I paid for them and what I got, this is a lousy value for money purchase.
