Rated 2 out of 5 by Biggsy Not impressive
I bought these as a replacement for a set of Bose headphones, which through my own stupidity managed to break. Reading the claim on the box about delivering deeper bass, I was deeply disappointed when I put these headphones in to hear a very flat sound, in contrast to the great level of bass I experienced on my old ones, frankly they are no better than the internal speakers on my laptop.

The iBeats were a great price to me because of the much higher prices of all the other types of beats by dre products. When I first got them they were amazing, the sound quality was much different than I was always used too. I mean these were awesome and the bass incredible for it's size. I also thought with high price comes good build quality and longevity. That however, not so true. I'm on my third pair of these because every time the earphone with the control talk becomes considerably lower in sound and the bass wasn't even there. Also one time the wires frayed along the whole wire. And the problem is I took great care of these so honestly these problems have to do with the build quality. Or lack of Build quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Vin Green Need to be recalled
I love these because of their amazing initial quality, however the wiring of the cord causes the ear buds to lose sound easily. I bought my IBeats on a vacation and within a week the sound in the left bud had gone out. I then went in to the same store at which I had bought them and replaced them thinking that it was just a faulty pair. But about 10 days after I got the second pair, I found that the bass in the left ear bud was failing intermittently and within a day the sound had gone out completely. I was extremely careful with both pairs because of their value and I am absolutely sure that I never pulled on the cord or anything of the sort. I found that if you are able to bend the cord in the perfect direction, then the sound returns to both buds, but if you move it even a fraction of a centimeter it goes as quickly as it came. This proves that it is not the bud that is having problems, but the cord itself. I am sure that this a relatively easy fix and therefore I believe that this product should be recalled ad fixed immediately.

i have used the earphone on daily basis for about more than i week,the price was right and sound was great but i was not too happy about the remote too big for one tiny wire earphone and cord too short.sadly i had to returned it...then i saw similar earphone from htc smartphone beats with remote then i got excited coz they have change the remote button looks so simple and straight up buttons.i hope they will make more of those not just for htc so i can buy them again this time with straight up remote buttons.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Very Disappointed Needs to be more durable
I was so psyced I bought these but now I'm very disappionted in this company. The iBeats did absolutely AMAZING for about 2 months but then the sound in the right earbud randomly went out completely. So I thought "I'll just activate the warranty and get a new pair". But then i looked at the steps in the warranty process and gave up because that would be WAY too much of a hassle going through all of that. Bottom line is that they should make these headphones more durable or make the warranty process shorter and with less hassle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Miki Great headphones but still some bugs.
Great headphones I first put them on I was floored at how clear I could hear all my music but I purchased these for a reason to use with my Ipod ([*]) and the control talk didn't work at all and when I went to the apple store they counldn't make it work either. For me they were a total waste of money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Purchaser of beat by dr. dre Great sound, but bad quality
The sound would be very good, however, they do not work properly. In the meantime, I have received the third pairs. And surprise, surprise: I experience again problems with them after a few months.
