Rated 1 out of 5 by southernsquid Don't buy these to work out!
After paying this kind of money for a set of ear phones to "WORK OUT" in, you would expect them to have no issues. Not the case with these, sweating definitely effects the controls and sometimes songs skip to other songs but themselves. I listen to a lot of instructional workouts and skipping tracks is just plain UNSAT! I would not recommend these for the purpose they were designed for. I was excited to purchase these but now just find them sitting on the shelf.

These power beats worked great at first, the sound quality is the max for a pair of ear buds in my opinion. But only a month after i bought these, the volume button on the cord started to bug out. The volume will constantly change on me which really makes you mad when your training for a sport and constantly having to fix the volume. Then i started to notice that the right ear was more quite then the left. This needs to be fixed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by akelly728 SWEAT KILLS THE CORD!
So, I got these for the sole purpose of using these during my workouts and unfortunately I can't even control the volume or switch songs consistently. As soon as I start sweating, and even at times when I'm just wearing them on the plane, the controls on the cord stop working. Also, the sweat seems to mess with the controls and it randomly skips songs in the middle of my current song. So frustrating - every workout I just pull them out and put them to the side. This type of money on ear buds and can't even use them for the intended purpose. Even the marketing is mis-leading - shown on commercials during a basketball workout.

Rated 2 out of 5 by edp form over function disappointingly
I spent £110 at the airport on way to holiday in order to have a decent sound whilst running training for half marathon. the sound is superb! and when just sitting around the headphones are great but no matter which earbuds i used the buds just dropped out of my ears within 1000m running. Simply not fit for purpose sadly. now an unused expensive box on a shelf, very dissapointed

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sassy@63 Excellent sound, great fit comfortable, durability not good
My experience.....started very good love the fit and sound then started to fast forward the music, turn it off and garble it. Replacement after two month usage, took two months to receive, in the process of returning my second pair, with the same complaint. For the price just expected more durability.. Hopefully I won't have to wait another two months, my original purchased color was the green, loved the color, replacement color was black......

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hammocl Great sound, awful durability
I've had my power beats for about a year and a half. No receipt of course and the sheathing is breaking exposing bare wire at the left headset and at the jack into the phone. I've always kept them wrapped and in the case and used them much less than most in that time. Now the sound cuts out and the controls don't work at all. Very sad that wrapping them up and putting them in the case has ruined them. I would have liked them to hold up better over time as they sound amazing when they work. If it weren't for this issue I would gladly buy another pair. Great sound and looks. Very stable while I lift and jog. Too bad.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pharil22 Must Purchase a Warranty plan of some sort if purchasing
Overall I like the Fit and comfort of these over the Ear/in ear headphones and the sound is great. just a dissapointment that the inline control for volume and ect... Is very unstable with sweat when working out. I will be exchanging mine for the 3rd time If i didnt have the replacement plan I would be totally upset being that ive had these for only 3 months and on my 3rd pair!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nobuko Controls on cord do not work
I have had these earphones for approximately 3 weeks, always good about keeping in the case. After a few times of use, would cause my iPOD to start reading off the song and playlist multiple times as I worked out, has finally stopped doing this, but now cord controls have stopped working completely. For $150 I guess I would have expected more, especially since they are fairly new. Also own Solo Beats, while sound is good as well, find the quality of the product is severely lacking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jake2300 Great design and fit but.............
When i opened and took out the PowerBeats they looked great, perfect condition. That was untill i tested them out. They didnt fit all the best, and the remote on the wire compleately didnt work. I havent even had them for an hour and i already have to manually do the volume.
