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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Musicman Horrible quality!!
Just as the other reviews say, these things quit working on the left side after 1 week. I didn't even work out with these at all. I found that it was shorting out at the jack, you can wiggle it a certain way and the sound would work. But seriously, pay that much for something to break within 1 week. Even the returns person at [...] said that there are so many returns/problems with them. Besides the sound, they're junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Moschti Poor Quality - Great Sound while it last
I owned two pairs of these headphones. The first pair broke down after 2 weeks of use. I carry my Ipod in my pocket while im in the Gym or running, so i guess the plug couldn't handle the twists and turns. Returned them, got a new pair, these ones lasted a month and then broke down again for the same reason. They are advertised as sports headphones but they can't handle the rough use. Not worth the Price.

I got these headphones because I thought they would blow others out of the water, well they did until I started to actually use them for what they were made for! I have had to replace them 6 times lucky had warranty. If its not the earbuds going out its the remote making my Ipod skip. I finally realized that its the mic portion of the headset that is causing the problems do not let any sweat get near that thing(impossible) I would not recommend this product for anyone who wants to use them for working out.

Lost audio in right speaker after 3 months. Audio in the left speaker goes in and out. Volume adjustment button no longer works. Absolutely not worth the [$]price tag.

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 Jamosky don't last
I had these earbuds for only two months and the left ear went out its shame after the money i spent and durability they claim they are and they don't last as long as two months. Very disappointed in the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kevin Sound great, durability is horrible!!!!
This product definitely puts out good sound, which is what makes me disappointed.The construction is pretty bad. The controller is the biggest problem. I spend a lot of time in the gym and I'm also an avid runner. The controller freaks out after about 20 minutes of working out. It makes the music stop playing and/or activates voice control which also stops music play. Its also hit or miss whether volume control works. It stinks because I really want to like these headphones. Maybe if you don't plan on using this product for physical activities (which is what they claim to be designed for) you will be alright. Otherwise you will be better off spending $20 on a pair of sports headphones at [...]At least they don't stop your music spontaneously!

Rated 1 out of 5 by brook22 3rd time's not a charm....
I have had 3 pairs of Powerbeats in the last year. I've had to replace each pair within 3 months because the cord controls stopped working. In addition, the fit is loose, and keeps them from being completely in my ear for me to get the full sound. Wasted time and money; still haven't been able to get a refund for my third pair. I would not recommend these headphones.
