Rated 2 out of 5 by TheQ57682 ONLY LASTS FOR A MONTH OR TWO
My experience with the urbeats was fantastic for about two months, after then, the right speaker blew out and my left one remained loud, creating an awkward blend of sound when I put in both earphones. The sound was great and well worth buying, it's just the durability ends it all in a short period of time. Until Beats fixes this problem, (IF they fix it, that is) I recommend buying a different pair of in-ear headphones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JD2012 terrible quality, if you want something that lasts longer than a month go for something else.
Love the sound, don't get me wrong the bass is excellent with a balanced mid range and equal treble. £80 product and the quality lasts a month. At that rate it's working out to be the highest expense per month that I have. The right earphone has failed on me twice, my first pair was within 3 weeks of owning them and the right one cut out completely. And me being the person I am I thought I would put it down to a first time unlucky occurrence and so I purchased yet another pair. I for one love bass heavy music and I can't live without house, trap and dubstep. And it would be brilliant if the earphones lasted as long as the song. Very annoyed customer and I can say for definite that after this I will never even look at another Beats product again.

SO this is my 4th pair of beats and they only last a few months. I take them everywhere I go and pack them away properly and within a few months, I seem to always loose sound from one ear and then eventually the other. I love beats as they sound incredible, but they just do not last long. $400+ later, only one ear is working... :-(

Rated 2 out of 5 by thescott great, but broke
I bought a pair for my daughters graduation and they broke two months later. the sound and fit were great, she couldn't hear me when I called for attention, the quality was that good. but I don't recommend this product for anyone that wants to use it for more than 1.5 months.

I have had many problems with my ibeats, the main one being the headphones giving me small electric shocks in my ear only after 2 weeks of using it, i would recommend this product if you want to waste your time with getting new ones and using rubbish headphones after a small time of use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Colin35 Stopped woking after 3 weeks
I hated the earphones because the right earphone stopped working after 3 weeks and the paint in the earphone chipped and chipped and chipped and i found the build quality to be awful and i just ordered the new studios i hope they wont let me down and im getting the new tours soon too hopefuly you guys stepped up the build quality on the new tours but if you guys have 100$dollars laying around dont buy the urbeats save up another 50$ and get the new tours.

They sound great, but when I take a phone call no one can ever hear me speaking, I hear them fine. What a WASTE of money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Roy What a waste of money
I just bought them 3 weeks ago and they already stopped working. I was sitting down got up and the left ear piece just shut off. These have to be the cheapest made headphones I have ever bought. As for sound its ok not worth [$] though you can get more for your money else where your just paying more for the brand imo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lewis Not what I expected ( bad )
I bought iBeats with high expectations, as they are 80 pounds. However what I experienced was a low quality product. Within one month, the ring of metal at the base of the cord fell off, so I returned them to get another pair. Within a week of having the new pair, the left earphone stopped playing music. I am disgusted at how badly made these headphones are. As I looked after my iBeats very carefully I did not expect them to break within the first month or even WEEK of having them. I have now returned by second pair, and bought another brand of headphones, which I much prefer and actually work.
