Rated 2 out of 5 by Runner Broke within 5 days
thought they would really be good for exercise. But by the end of the 3rd run the clicker, like every other pair of head phones, was broken. Poor effort Dr Dre, poor poor effort.

Rated 2 out of 5 by P.J. DO NOT BUY
I have had to replace my PowerBeats 4 times in the past 6 months. The music quality is great but the quality of the headphones themselves is another story. I've taken great care of my headphones and they still fall apart. I would not buy the PowerBeats for a friend our myself. Do not buy these headphones

Rated 2 out of 5 by josandre Great sound bad contruction quality
It have a great sound, but a poor construction, bad plastics and a a very poor control quality. I take 3 sets with defects, that's not admissible a in these type of products.

Rated 2 out of 5 Not build to last
I'm a runner, and after using them for 6 months, the "sound control" stops working. So, for a 150$ earbuds, I was hoping better build quality. The sound is good, they stay in the the ear (after a few test) but like a lot of reviews say - they're not build to last.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BuffalocCoachman $150 for headphones that sound great but don't last
I've gone through 2 pairs within 6 months. The controls are not meant to last. In both pairs after a few weeks of use the mic and volume control stop working. The controls are made with cheap plastic. In addition to problems with the mic and volume contol the ear tips easily fall off. Also wouldn't it be wise to have a tangle free cord or even wireless as these are advertised for active use? The sound is great and delivers on the lows which is the only real positive considering its cost.

Rated 2 out of 5 by craddo2 Nice design but 149.99 with a great sound far as tremble but lacks bass badly.
Brought these Powerbeats. Because my Studio BEATS I have were to big and was getting in my way far as running and got tired of changing the battery to but still love them anyway. Powerbeats haven't had a problem with them but it's just the bass isn't there. for my workouts being oversea's and all it doesn't give me that bass i need when I'm running or going hard in the gym.

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 Justinas Great sound, poor build quality
These do really sound very good as sport earphones. They hold on to your ear quite steady too. But I was hugely disappointed and surprised with really poor build quality. The In-line remote button is so poorly designed - or maybe just over-designed. It is built loose and from poor quality plastic so one can hear it shaking while listening to music. It is also designed not ergonomically and when compared to practical and quality built button on genuine iPhone earphones, it is a huge contrast in usability. After a year of use (no sports) the cable started losing contact somewhere - In-line remote button stopped working and if the cable is not steady, there is a lot of noise coming out.
But great sound!

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
