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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lisg81 Horrible
These headphones hear amazing but I do not recommend them at all they do not last at all and I took care of them like if it was gold but they started breaking little by little in the corner the cable started ripping and the wires started coming out my headphones are taped every where with electric tape... Don't be stubborn and Do NOT! Honestly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dyl17834 Great but poor durability
I bought these headphones around 6 months ago and as they were eighty pounds I expected them to be really good quality and the sound was good but around 2 months ago the volume button to turn it up got jammed and now it doesn't work so I cannot use that which was an important feature to me

Rated 3 out of 5 by David1997 They were very good, but my right earbud stopped working and I only had them for about 1 month.
I would like to know what I can do to fix these my earphones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Unsatisfied customer :/ Great sound and comfort but...
My experience with urbeats has been amazing with the sound quality, design, how they feel in my ears when i workout, and just everything except... they do not work after just 3 Months!!! I got my first pair of beats and had them for 6 months and then the sound just stopped working for no reason!! So I got a new pair... and then 3 months later they stopped working agian!!! i am very disapointed in how badly these beats are made... but besides them breaking they are amazing headphones.

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...
