Rated 1 out of 5 by Nav Don't waste your money
If you want a pair of headphone that look great, are overpriced and don't serve their purpose then the iBeats are perfect. There are plenty of alternative earphones which are much cheaper and do a much better job. I have had them for less than 2 months and I only house them with provided case, despite this more than ½ the paint has peeled off! Not to mention that they keep falling out, I've even tried changing the ear buds but still have the same issue. Worst pair of headphones I've had ever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mike Falling apart after 6 months
These were good while they worked for the first few months. Wire connections to the microphone 80% frayed, losing sound in right ear. Microphone and controls no longer work (6 months).Sound is good, construction very cheap. Not worth [$] for durability.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dom Beats is an absolute hyped brand!
I cannot believe the amount of hype beats by dr. dre get. I bought these headphones as a joke, and it stayed a joke. Compare these to the sounds of Shure SE535 and B&W C5 they sound like absolute rubbish. I strongly recommend not getting these headphones and going for some actual headphones. Any Beats by Dr. Dre are a joke!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Teen who takes good care of headphones Terrible construction, good sound.
I am extremely disappointed. My last pair of headphone lasted for 4 years, and then these broke in just over a month. Just long enough so I cannot return them to my local store. For the amount charged they should last for 20 years, not 33 days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by D Rose Flimsy construction a deal breaker
I loved these while they lasted. A week after the 1 year warranty expired, the connection between the cable and jack broke down. Considering the care I showed them (never removed by pulling on the cable) and how 1 in 4 reviewers list "flimsy construction" as a con, it sounds like a widespread issue. It's sad to see a brand so well known for quality, produce flimsy products in order to reach a low price point.

Rated 1 out of 5 by afrojoe beautiful but flimsy
These were brilliant headphones, and for 80 pounds you would expect them to be of good build quality too. I used mine every day, and after every use, put them back in the little bag. But like every other pair of in ears I have had, the left ear bud went silent after just 2 months! Peoblem being that they came with my HTC, and tempted me to get the phone. Now it will be a real chase to get them replaced

Although these headphones did a good job at cancelling external noise and had good sound quality, they break. I had three different pairs over the course of 1 year because they would stop playing in1 ear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Unhappy Beat Purchaser DO NOT BUY
Horrible design, constantly fall out of ear, stopped working within three weeks of purchase, first the microphone and remote, then started cutting in and out until no longer useable, waste of money
