Rated 2 out of 5 by tpr12 I wish I could say better
I received my first pair of these earphones as an early Christmas gift in December 2013. I immediately fell in love with the clear sound and fashionable design. I was excited to finally own a pair of Beats, which were an upgrade from my drugstore brand earphones. I listen to music everyday for about 2 hours (and sometimes more), so I go through cheap earphones in less than a few months. After reading about urBeats intentional durability (and price), I was convinced they'd last me at least a year. I was, however, greatly mistaken. After only three months, my urBeats fizzled and died. Fortunately, I retained the original receipt, and requested a warranty. The process was seamless and only took about four days, plus the customer service was wonderful. When my new Beats arrived, I was excited. Convinced that the first pair had been because of heavy use, I only used my new pair lightly. Again, much to my chagrin, my Beats have died. These are wonderful earphones, but they are NOT durable , so do not be misled.

Rated 2 out of 5 by emily7199 this product is not the best
The sound quality of these earphones are the best iv'e ever heard, but is worst in durability. I have exchanged my earbuds for doe new ones because the left ear was not working and when I got new ones after a month of having them the same problem happened, the left ear just stopped working. I have not played with them neither have I pulled on them, both of my earbuds broke from sitting in a pocket of my backpack all day.

When I got these, I was SO excited! They had amazing sound, and were comfortable, and lightweight. But recently, I've had them for about 9-10 months, the right side went out. Completely. And the left side cuts in and out. It's really disappointing. I must say, I thought they would last longer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mugfi Not good for long term use
I bought my earbuds in January of 2014, and since then they broke, which was when i got my replacements. Next after about a month and a half the replacements broke, and i am getting another replacement pair. If you are looking for earbuds i suggest you look elsewhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RedSuns im upset with the urbeats
the urbeats sound good and all but they do not last long at all iv been through 5 pairs of them and all of them have broken. they broke in about two months every time the left earbud would go out and only the right one worked. i think these earphones are nice and sound great but just they dont last long.
iv been through two black pairs. one blue pair. one white pair. and a purple pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ThaDarKnight Great but didnt last
Bought these 7 months ago for casual listening and working out. They are in great condition but the piece were you plug into headphone jack has gone bad. Only get sound out of 1 ear piece. For the price, you would expect better durability.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Whatever Amazing Sound.... For About 3 Months
I bought these products about 3 months ago, and I fell in love. The sound is beyond amazing, the cable never tangled, and the earbud is perfect for me. I used them every day and took the utmost care of them...literally everything the instruction manual said. They were always in their case when not in use. Then the left ear stopped working unless i twisted the wire a certain way, and so I did, and then noth ears stopped working altogether, emitting a static noise unless the cable is in a certain place. Amazing while they lasted, but I can't afford to buy new ones every few months.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lovedabeats123 Great Features, though needs improvement
I love Beats Headphones and don't mind paying extra for good quality headphones. However the Ur Beats sound amazing but after having them for a couple months the right ear started going out. Then eventually the left. I know it's a cord probably too because when you wiggle the cord the headphones cut in and out. I bought a warranty and will probably get the headphones again because of the sound quality, but it would be nice to have them last longer then a couple months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jdu.bluebird Ibeats not working with iPhone4 FaceTime
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.
