Rated 1 out of 5 by Brendan 2 Different Sets 2 Problems
I bought of power beats excited to use for workouts, the first set I bought I had problems with the controls within day. I returned that set to get another set hoping my problems would be through, I was wrong, on the second set one of the earphones did not work. I returned that pair and bought a different brand. I wish the power beats worked because the setup is great, the performance was brutal though. Hopefully they work through the glitches and put out a better product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Severely Dissappointed Terrible construction/durability
Purchased boxing day, from [...]. Loved them for about a week, on the way to gym for the first time with these (bus) left bud cut out. Fiddling with the left wire near the control talk remedied the problem till I moved my head, then it cut out again. Ruined an entire workout session. Returning ASAP for another brand, beware. Side note: wire looked like it was wearing out near the 3.5 mm connector piece and would have broken too. I am a gentle user, never had earbuds break on me before, including stock iPhone pair for 2 years.

I bought some powerbeats about a month ago, and used them for about a week and they broke. I took them out of the case and the earphone was disconnected from the wire. I had called Beats and they were not able to fix them, so I had to call every stereo shop and every jewelry repair shop in the state of Colorado, and nobody could fix them. Do not buy this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by speedy2 Not Designed Well for athletes
Just had to return my third pair to the store yesterday. I am so disappointed in these earphones. Thought they would be the answer to my workout need for music and be able to take calls if I had to. But after one workout each pair of these earphones that I have exchanged(I've had the white ones and the black ones) stopped working correctly. The music still played but the push button control and the mike did not function correctly. I don't know if it is from sweat or all the movements from exercising but if they are going to be marketed to athletes then they need to be designed for athletes. We understand if things needs to be more robust so it can take the rigor of movement and sweating. Again I am really disappointed in these earphones and hope the design flaw would be fixed and someone will let me know when it is. at this time I cannot recommend these earphones especially for athletes that do a lot of sweating and movements during their workouts. Back to the drawing board......looking for a good workout earphone, any suggestions?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Appitsch3 This product has no durability
I recently bought a pair of these powerbeats and within one week of use the command button on the wire stopped working. Not only the volume +/- but the pausing or skipping button and microphone as well. I sent my original pair back thinking I was just unlucky but my replacement pair did the same thing but in only 2 days of working out with them. They are not swear resistant and now the actual headphones are started to sound weird and I've only had them for 3 weeks. I would not recommend these for someone trying to actually work out with them.
