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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JWILDE Horrible quality for the price
They functioned great, used them when working out, running, on the bus to/from work, around the house and on airplanes. The audio quality was excellent, very good highs and lows, comfortable fit, the over the ear pieces are adujustable. I went through three pairs, each lasted only 2-3 weeks before the volume controls stopped working. Finaly decided to go with another set set of headphones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Army Stromg Disappointed in product
The primary use of this product was during my workouts 3-4 days a week. After two uses during the first week after I purchased, the volume controls and the track pause/skip button stopped working. It also caused my iPod to skip tracks continuously. After returning to store for an exchange after the two uses, the same happened with the second set after one use. I definitely regret purchasing this product. Would not recommend this product due to it poor quality and high price.
