Rated 1 out of 5 by Vicman UTTERLY DISAPOINTED AND FRUSTRATED - DON'T BUY THEM
I just bought them, wore them for three days and my ears hurt. They are sooooo uncomfortable. If you want good sound you have to jam them into your ear, but in 10 minutes your ear is sore. I tried all three ear buds but none work. The sound is not what I expected for $150. I'm so frustrated because I can't wear them anymore because they are so uncomfortable. I'm very disapointed with this brand, I heard it was one of the best, and bought them happily but honestly I feel so ripped off I'm never getting near this brand again.

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 1 out of 5 by Meg The worst.
I bought these less than a year ago, and have only used them a total of five times since then. Suddenly, today, they don't work. These things are made of glass. Buy something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joyce This product lasts awhile
I bought the red Powerbeats in March 2012, and since then, I casually use them. They have not been torn, nor have I had any issues with it. My friend has borrowed them from me and he said he's never had any issues with the product either. Since he has mine, he uses them while he goes and lifts or works out and even while he sweats, he's never had any issues.

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 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 4 out of 5 by DWil921 great sound!
As an avid runner and active individual, I've tried everything on the market - and most fall short - and always fall out! From an overall perspective, these headphones are amazing. Premium sound with a comfortable fit that stays put whether you are hitting the gym or hitting the road. Great highs, mids, and lows - Ive honestly heard things in some songs that I have never heard before. These also allow you to hear some ambient sound without overpowering the music - not so important in the gym, but a lot more when running. It would be helpful if a greater variety of ear tips were included - also its impossible to find replacements so dont lose them! Overall, one of the best pair of headphones I own.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JT Replacement clip...
I lost my attachment clip (the black clip that attach the wire to the shirt) and they don't have any replacement ones I can purchase....... It is ridiculous as the clip is so easy to fall off. I'm so disappointed when the parts are missing and the company can't even sell the parts to me....

Rated 1 out of 5 by scalpemnoles Not Made for Athletes!
These Earphones had potential. They have pretty good design with fitted comfort, but were not made for athletes. One drop of sweat on the remote control and it stops working! You can't use them for any form of exercises were you will sweat, in other words, athletes can't use them at all! after all, weren't these earphones specifically targeted for athletes? It's ironic how the activity that these earphones target is exactly the cause for them to malfunction. False advertisement?

I love them. Especially for contemporary jazz and traditional jazz. To hear the percussion and base lines to me, allow me to feel as if I were at club sipping on a drink. Rocking my head to the beat.
