Rated 1 out of 5 by Royzero AWFUL PRODUCT!!!
The first thing that happened after about a week of using this product was that the controlTalk volume clicker was popping off when you try to reduce volume. After about another week, the left ear speaker started going in and out, and then went completely dead. This is so poorly made that I'd say it isn't worth a fifth of what I payed. My [$] V-moda is far better made, and has proven to be much more durable, and the sound is comparable. I should also mention that I had the Beats Tour headphones as well, and they didnt last 6 months.... very disappointing.

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 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 Nick the honest reviewer WORSE THAN FREE IPHONE 4 HEADPHONES!
If you have any intention of using these to replace your FREE iphone headphones while talking on the phone while moving, stay as far away from these as you can!I am returning these after 1 hour. Seriously, 1 hour. That's all I needed to determine that these are absolutely stupid. My gripe with these pertains to wind noise during a phone call. It is absolutely horrible. HORRIBLE! Like, 2001 horrible. There is no way that [$] headphones that are marketed for a "neat" iPhone/iPod controller should have more wind noise than the free headphones that came with my iPhone. I wanted to use these running or biking and I couldn't even have a conversation with someone while walking through a parking lot because there was so much wind distraction.If you don't need to use these while moving and talking on a phone, then by all means buy them, but why wouldn't you just buy the better sounding over ear ones for the same price.

Don't waste your money on these! I received them for Christmas and the remote stopped working after the 6th run. I sent them back and the company gladly replaced them. The second pair lasted 7 runs before the remote stopped working. Now I have a $150 pair of mediocre sounding earphones that i cannot access my iPhone with.

I lift weights with this product (when it works). The cord is so narrow that often time it shorts out! I have returned this faulty product 4 times in one year!

Was good for sport use until BOTH the earhooks on both sides broke off. -.- Never thought it could break so easily only after a couple of months! Really upset me. Still using it though, as the sound is still there except it gets loose sometimes. Now, the remote and the connection between the jack and wire is terrible. Just a little move of the remote and the connection it pauses/changes track/goes to voice control on my ipod/itunes on my laptop. Sometimes there is sound only from one side and I'll have to adjust the connection between the wire and jack to get it working right again. Really disappointed with the product. Looks good, but worst quality I've ever come across in earphones in my life.

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.
