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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by raiden ""remote shape are bulky
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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Matt Amazing sound but not recommended
I absolutely love these headphones. The sound quality is great and I love the control talk. However I would not recommend this product because they seem to break every month. I don't understand why they break, it's not like I ever drop them and I always take good care of them. Luckily I got the warranty for them at [@], and it really has paid for its self on account that I have gotten them replaced 5 times now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by hobotron Great sound, poor build.
Great sound quality, but then again this is my 3rd pair. for [$] though, I would go with another brand. Don't waste your money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Six Good sound but poor quality
I have had 4 pairs of the Ibeats. First impessions of the ear buds are great. They look great, sound great (despite the lack of bass), and there cool. The only thing is that they do not last longer than 2 months. Out of the 4 pair I had 3 lasted only one month and the other pair lasted two months. It was the same problem every time; where the right earbud went out, went silent, or broke, whatever you want to call it. I expected a lot more out [$] headphones, and I expected a lot more from the brand, but I was disappointed. I went back to Sony for my listening pleasure.
