Rated 1 out of 5 by Mikala1406 Not good for running
I am a Marathon-runner and was very excited when Beats came out with this model. In the beginning they were great: great sound and very comfortable. However, within a three weeks the button stopped working and within 6 weeks the left headset cut out. Don't know if it is because I got a "lemon" or they are "allergic" to sweat. Anyhow, given what I paid for them and what I got, this is a lousy value for money purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JWILDE Horrible quality for the price
They functioned great, used them when working out, running, on the bus to/from work, around the house and on airplanes. The audio quality was excellent, very good highs and lows, comfortable fit, the over the ear pieces are adujustable. I went through three pairs, each lasted only 2-3 weeks before the volume controls stopped working. Finaly decided to go with another set set of headphones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ari ONLY GOOD WITH IPHONE
These are very comfortable, beautiful design, stays in your ear and sounds very good. But one problem. I wanted a pair a quality ear phones that go around your ear with a microphone. Everything works great but one MAJOR problem. If you use anything other than an Iphone you cannot use the microphone. I called them to find out why I cant answer the phone with them and they told me its only compatible with Iphones. I told him why I bought them and that I have never heard of anything so stupid. Every ear phone I have ever had worked with every phone I ever had. In fact I was calling him with my old Iphone headset (got rid of Iphone last year) and the Iphone headset worked with my new phone (Iphone headsets are compatible with every phone) but these are not. This is the absolutely the stupidist thing I have EVER heard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Army Stromg Disappointed in product
The primary use of this product was during my workouts 3-4 days a week. After two uses during the first week after I purchased, the volume controls and the track pause/skip button stopped working. It also caused my iPod to skip tracks continuously. After returning to store for an exchange after the two uses, the same happened with the second set after one use. I definitely regret purchasing this product. Would not recommend this product due to it poor quality and high price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RunForrestRun Not fitting snug
I use this product for running. I wear a nike running hat slightly over the PowerBeats to fit them snug into my ears. Without the running hat it's a drama, i continiously use my hands to make them fit snug.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mr.sad another one bites the dust
This is my third powerbeats that I've purchased. That's right....not a typo....THIRD! and once again they have failed due to the same exact issue. One side of the earphones completely stopped working. Promptly fiddling with the audio jack will get it back but only for a short period. This is my third post but I guess my other two didn't make it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sincere Universal Disappointed!
I got the buds for a gift. I took them back because I saw the sports power beats. So I exchanged them because I needed something for the gym. The reviews I read made me second guess myself, but I decided to make it happen. Well, first use I was thrilled! Next day for a cardio session, the left side stop working. One week and had to take them back. Killing me!
