Rated 3 out of 5 by plancks Great sound quality but breaks quickly
Splurged and bought a pair of these 6 months ago. Absolutely loved them but last week on the bus, I lost audio on the left earphone. Rotating the cord and pressing it seemed to work sometimes, but today I lost sound in both and can't get sound back in either! Pretty disappointed as I really had to save up for these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shivesh Great sound, but didn't last very long
Just bought these headphones about two weeks ago, and they sound excellent! The only problem with them is that the left ear bud just faded out today and I can barely hear anything out of it. I'm pretty disappointed with the durability given all of the advertising of the earbuds as durable. Really good looking earbuds, great sound, just don't last long at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mw429 Mic not working
Just bought these today for my girlfriend and they work great for music but not as a hands free option for the cell phone. She has a Galaxy S3 and I figured these would be good for her since she's on the phone a lot. Problem is that when we went home and she got a call, it wouldn't work. Either the mic worked but she couldn't hear the person or the mic didn't work and she could hear the person. Very frustrating. Not sure if we should return them or not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AFROSTRIFE AMAZING bass and overall sound , but NOT "GRID-IRON TOUGH".THEY ARE ALL-BUT INDESTRUCTIBLE.
i bought my pair brand new two months ago. my right bud is already metal fatigued to the point of not working at all (the right bud wont work unless the entire chord is situated in one very percise position and is left untouched)
these are very nice earphones with amazing sound quality but THEY ARE NOT "GRID-IRON TOUGH", OR EVEN TOUGH AT ALL FOR ANY PERSON WHO DOESNT KEEP THEM IN A VAULT FOR THEIR SPAN OF EXISTENCE.
this product is in no way going to be fine "whether you keep urBeats pristine or throw them in and out of your bag." and you DO have to worry about them breaking or fraying within a few months of legitimate use.
This being said, these are definitley THE BEST SOUNDING earbuds i have ever heard and would definitley be worth the painful $100 if they were as durable as they supposedly are.
FOR ANY PEOPLE ON THE FENCE ABOUT BUYING A PAIR:
these are amazing headphones. the best you can buy.
JUST MAKE SURE YOU GET THE WARRANTY AND DONT SHOVE THEM IN YOUR POCKET, BAG, ETC.
THEY WILL BREAK IF YOU AREN'T CAREFUL
NOTE:I AM CURRENTLY GOING THROUGH THE PROCESS OF RETURNING MY PAIR TO BEATS FOR A WORKING PAIR DUE TO THE REASONS STATED

Rated 3 out of 5 by Toys33 Great sound..ear tip comfortability was questionable
I was given these as a birthday present yesterday. I was very excited because I have wanted a pair of beats for quite some time now. I tried these on around the house and they were great. Sound was awesome and comfort was great. So, I was excited to hit the gym with them the next day. I do a lot of cardio outside and in the gym. When I began to sweat during my work out the ear buds kept popping out of my ear which I didn't like. I plan on exchanging them for the powerbeats but is a little skeptical to get them at all because the reviews for them were not great. These were awesome for leisure but for any exercise they didn't work. I will exchange them and check out the powerbeats to see if the previous reviewers are correct.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Moneyfill The sound was good, but the comfort was horrible.
The comfort was not great. I think they should have stuck with the ibeats earbuds because the were vary comfortable. Not the best earphones to get. I would by the beats tour instead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Emma0 Good But Don't Last Long
The actual beats earphones where very good, until the other day I noticed that the left ear bud had faded out, very disappoint as they were such good earphones.

the urbeats are an excellent pair of headphones. I have had mine for about a year but one day i pluged them in to my ipod and they didnt play any sound. later on i moved the wier and it started playing again. i then moved the wier again and it stoped playing sound. But don't get me wrong these are one of the best sounding ear phones from beats and i would even say their better than the tours(new and old). if you are thinking of getting them i would sudjest you do but just watch out for the wier.

Rated 3 out of 5 by manabunga! Great, but could be better
I have owned my urbeats for at least four months now, and whenever i lie down listening to some music, I hear static, popping, and a little hum in the EarPods (both). On the bright side, they are great earphones, look excellent in person, the sound is mind-blowing, and they are the best sounding pair that I have ever owned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cnnrtower Wires Exposed Very Quickly
I purchased my beats back in august, since I started college in September. Although the comfort was an issue at times, the sound quality was very good. The downside I found was that the remote did not work from almost the start, yet I wasn't able to register them on the Beats website because the website physically would not let me. I always kept them in the little pouch that was included, but yesterday I noticed that two wires were exposed (stripped completely of their insolation) near the remote, making them prone to completely break any day now.
For sound quality, these are good headphones, but in terms of durability, I'd say maybe not.
