Rated 1 out of 5 by MrXtuba TERRIBLE
Overall, a waste of [$]. I haven't even had iBeats for half a year yet and they've already completely lost their use. Only one speaker works, the volume-up button no longer works and also rattles out of control, the paint on the speakers is almost completely chipped, the cord is tangled at all times and is never straight, speakers are too quiet, low bass effect, and clearly has NO high performance quality. From what I've heard is completely true. Beats are only good for their looks and their name-brand. I do NOT reccommend Beats in general.

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

Rated 1 out of 5 by LEAGUEOFLEGENDS One bud earphones
After a month my beats ear buds began to wan in sound and began to lean to the left side and another week come by the right bud completely stopped working. I do not know what it was that made it this way but I love these beats products but unfortunately I have to say I do not approve of these earbuds from my personal experiences.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Daily Commuter Good Sound Quality, Durability Questionable
I got these as a gift from work. When I put them in I was pretty amazed at how good the sound was. It made me wish I gotten better earbuds earlier. About 3 months later the sound started going out on them. I used them everyday but also put them up after use (in their case) and took good care of them. I then used a RMA and got a new pair very quickly which also impressed me. I was happy to have such good customer service take care of it. After I got the new pair about 3-4 weeks later the same thing happened. I want to like these UR Beats, but since the same thing happened twice I am not willing to give them a third try. I am not sure if I was just unlucky, but I was disappointed with the quality. The build feels great like they would last forever, not sure why the sound out twice. The box they come with is nice and so is the overall feel of them.

it appears that FaceTime is not working with iPhone 4 and the iBeats in ear. High Price, very low value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jason Miserable design and performance
This set of earbuds is a major disappointment. I have no problem with the sound, which is outstanding. The design and reliability are seriously flawed, however. In the less than two months I have owned them, I have had to return sets to Best Buy twice! Once for a microphone that died in less than a week and once for buttons on the mic that stopped working in less than a month. Moreover, the design for these earphones is ill conceived. The prominance of the on/off/answer button on the mic is such that it is extremely easy to accidently trigger it when taking off the earphones, meaning that whatever you are listening to will begin playing (enormously annoying if you are listening to an audio book). Also, the rubberized cable is high-friction and snags on almost every piece of winter clothing I own, meaning that the earbuds are regularly ripped out of my ear when doing things as complicated as, say, turning my head. Other versions of the beats earbuds may be better, but these are miserable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MARK THE TECH CONTROL TALK NEEDS WORK
THE I BEATS SOUND GREAT, BUT THE CONTROL TALK DID NOT WORK WITH IPOD 4TH GEN. THE VOICE COMMAND KEPT POPPING UP WHEN NOT WANTED. IT WOULD ALSO FAST FOWARD THROUGH SONGS OR SKIP TO A DIFFERENT SONG ON A DIFFERENT ALBUM. THEY HAD A MIND OF THEIR OWN. I TOOK THEM BACK AND GOT A PAIR OF TURBINES W/O CONTROL TALK. I HAVE HAD NO MORE PROBLEMS.
