Rated 3 out of 5 by Toys33 Great sound..ear tip comfortability was questionable
I was given these as a birthday present yesterday. I was very excited because I have wanted a pair of beats for quite some time now. I tried these on around the house and they were great. Sound was awesome and comfort was great. So, I was excited to hit the gym with them the next day. I do a lot of cardio outside and in the gym. When I began to sweat during my work out the ear buds kept popping out of my ear which I didn't like. I plan on exchanging them for the powerbeats but is a little skeptical to get them at all because the reviews for them were not great. These were awesome for leisure but for any exercise they didn't work. I will exchange them and check out the powerbeats to see if the previous reviewers are correct.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jiri Huge disappointment
I was so excited about these earphones when I bought them and I couldn't wait to try them on. As I already had Mixr headphones at home which are really awesome I thought these earphones will be simillar and will deliver really good sound to my ears (at cost of £80 they should). Unfortunetaly I was really disappointed by them. They have good bass range but that's all I would say. I use earphones which were 2 times cheaper and the sound quallity is much better. Maybe I'm too demanding but for that price I would expect much more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AFROSTRIFE AMAZING bass and overall sound , but NOT "GRID-IRON TOUGH".THEY ARE ALL-BUT INDESTRUCTIBLE.
i bought my pair brand new two months ago. my right bud is already metal fatigued to the point of not working at all (the right bud wont work unless the entire chord is situated in one very percise position and is left untouched)
these are very nice earphones with amazing sound quality but THEY ARE NOT "GRID-IRON TOUGH", OR EVEN TOUGH AT ALL FOR ANY PERSON WHO DOESNT KEEP THEM IN A VAULT FOR THEIR SPAN OF EXISTENCE.
this product is in no way going to be fine "whether you keep urBeats pristine or throw them in and out of your bag." and you DO have to worry about them breaking or fraying within a few months of legitimate use.
This being said, these are definitley THE BEST SOUNDING earbuds i have ever heard and would definitley be worth the painful $100 if they were as durable as they supposedly are.
FOR ANY PEOPLE ON THE FENCE ABOUT BUYING A PAIR:
these are amazing headphones. the best you can buy.
JUST MAKE SURE YOU GET THE WARRANTY AND DONT SHOVE THEM IN YOUR POCKET, BAG, ETC.
THEY WILL BREAK IF YOU AREN'T CAREFUL
NOTE:I AM CURRENTLY GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF RETURNING MY PAIR TO BEATS FOR A WORKING PAIR DUE TO THE REASONS STATED

Rated 4 out of 5 by StevenJr Great Product, So Far
I've tried the URBeats and the Tour 2.0 earphones and the URBeats are by far and away superior. Lighter and better overall quality. I notice better noise cancellation/isolation with the URBeats, too. I know they're not noise cancelling, but they definitely limit the amount of outside noise, allowing you to enjoy your music or your call without interference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mw429 Mic not working
Just bought these today for my girlfriend and they work great for music but not as a hands free option for the cell phone. She has a Galaxy S3 and I figured these would be good for her since she's on the phone a lot. Problem is that when we went home and she got a call, it wouldn't work. Either the mic worked but she couldn't hear the person or the mic didn't work and she could hear the person. Very frustrating. Not sure if we should return them or not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shivesh Great sound, but didn't last very long
Just bought these headphones about two weeks ago, and they sound excellent! The only problem with them is that the left ear bud just faded out today and I can barely hear anything out of it. I'm pretty disappointed with the durability given all of the advertising of the earbuds as durable. Really good looking earbuds, great sound, just don't last long at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by trblmk Not durable
Just unboxed one today and when I move the cord around a little bit where the plug is, the sound on the left ear fades in and out. I have a feeling these won't last very long, and that the left ear will probably die before a month. I thought these were made to be more durable? The sound is great, but I don't recommend these earphones for its price if it can't even last more than one month.

Rated 3 out of 5 by plancks Great sound quality but breaks quickly
Splurged and bought a pair of these 6 months ago. Absolutely loved them but last week on the bus, I lost audio on the left earphone. Rotating the cord and pressing it seemed to work sometimes, but today I lost sound in both and can't get sound back in either! Pretty disappointed as I really had to save up for these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Josh220300 Not very satisfied
Just bought my first pair of these, sound quality is good, absolutely love the bass, but isn't really that crisp clear. Also, there seems to be the crackling sounds even though It's only been a week after I bought these. The earphones can be quite uncomfortable and but they fit in my ears quite well. Not really satisfied, but I guess they're OK though. I personally don't really regret buying them.
