Rated 3 out of 5 by jojo4 Not for activity....
I got these over the Holiday break and boy' was I excited to go for my run on the beach (Miami, South Beach) or start my cross fit workout or to even warm-up with a jump rope. Very disappointed!
SOUND was great if they stayed...
Bottom line they fall out of my ear. If you are an athlete like myself I don't think you'll like them. To heavy on the ear. I have to literally push them in to hold them in my ear. Yes, I tired all sizes for the ear lobe. Female 5'5 120 lbs and I want something that is going to stay in my ear be super comfortable like the iphone earphone. Maybe I was used to those, went to SoHO store in NYC and went with the POWERBEATS. I tested those and PERFECT FIT! Have not tested them yet but will very soon...
The URBEATS are just good for watching a movie (iphone, ipad) listening to music at your desk/airplane, etc but no good if you are mobile fall, too heavy and don't like the fact that I have to push them in. I want to keep my hearing :) Good luck and hope this was helpful...

Rated 3 out of 5 by edgar13 Good sound, bad durability
I got these about two weeks ago they have really good sound and bass, but just a day ago they suddenly stop giving sound.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sabrina L Perfect sound but breaks fast
I absolutely love these earphones, I'm a teen so music is basically my life. Skull candy a good, but not comfortable. These earphones just are so snug and feel like there's nothing there, and the quality of the sound is just wonderful. Now the only downside that I seem to have is that they break so easily, and I know you're probably thinking I'm young and careless about stuff like this but i take of my stuff especially if it's $100. The part where the cable and connecter that plugs into your music device always seems to be the problem, even though I don't pull or abuse that part. I got new pair once I took it in, but now these new ones are starting to do that as well. It's frustrating more than anything because these earphones truly are amazing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alec7 Not too impressed.
Don't get me wrong these are good ear phones but they have their problems. I've had beats solos hd. So after listening to those and transitioning to the urbeats I'm not that impressed. The sound quality is a little better than average but the comfort isn't the best. They just feel awkward at times.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Twipz Durability is poor
The sound on these headphones is great, but the durability is really poor. I have have already bought two pairs of these headphones and each time the sound has stopped working on the right side after a few months. My current pair recently just stopped working on the right side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kitos Doesnt last long enough.
I saved up for 5 months so I could afford these just so I could be let down in length. These lasted 3 months, and then the right earbud stopped working. I was extremely impressed with everything including sound, look, and feel. I just wish they wouldve lasted longer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mjteh Great product, not so great durability
The urBeats are great earphones. I'm totally addicted to the sound - crisp, clear, and lots of bass. However, as impressed as I have been with the sound quality, I have been disappointed by the durability. I had the urBeats for about two months when the sound in the right earbud just went away. I sent them in and got a replacement pair in a few weeks. However, after a couple of careful months later, now the in-line microphone in my new urBeats doesn't work at all. Buy these earphones for the great sound, but be prepared for some headache with malfunctioning Beats.

Rated 3 out of 5 by murst The product has great sound and design but is lacking in durability
I love the sound quality and the design. I use the microphone all the time for calls and it is great and easy to use. But the right speaker has quit working in both the pairs I have owned. The durability of the headphone is not up to the same caliber as the other features of the product.
