Rated 1 out of 5 by Martyn dont bother.....
i got a pair for good money, tried them out and the ipod control did not work, wiggled the wire it worked, moved around, it stopped again, returned to shop, even vendor said quality has gone down hill.......pity, marketing worked for me and now should not have believed the hype!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Parker Very disappointed....
When I bought my beats I was so happy, than after 5 days of having them the cord started to fall apart. I didn't have the receipt but they gave me a courteous w.e thing... I got them back, once again happy to have them.... 10 days later... The plug end had disconnected from a wire, so only one of them wasn't working.. I had to mess with it to be able tohear from it... After frustrated with them I trashed them.... Went to [...], and got me 10 dollar head phones... (way better than the beats) I never neglected my beats always had them in the case after done using them... Do not see how they got ruined again.. I sadly wouldn't recommend buying these. Maybe the other beats will be better, but I rather not risk it...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lewis Not what I expected ( bad )
I bought iBeats with high expectations, as they are 80 pounds. However what I experienced was a low quality product. Within one month, the ring of metal at the base of the cord fell off, so I returned them to get another pair. Within a week of having the new pair, the left earphone stopped playing music. I am disgusted at how badly made these headphones are. As I looked after my iBeats very carefully I did not expect them to break within the first month or even WEEK of having them. I have now returned by second pair, and bought another brand of headphones, which I much prefer and actually work.

Poorly made. I went through 2 pair in 8 months. Both pair had internal connectivity problems at the point where the the cord connects to the 1/8" plug after only a few months of careful use. Spend your hard earned money on a product that will hold up, not these poorly made things.

Purchased first pair and soon after use they echo like your under water. Exchange those thinking they were defective and the new pair did the same thing.Hold the volume button down and you hear everything normal. Purchased at Best Buy they won't take them back after 90 days. JUNK!

All of the reviews are from people that just got theirs, and I'm telling you, along with all the other thousands of people, these things break within a month. You could take the best care of these in the world, but every time you bend the wire there's like a 25% chance one of the earpieces will stop working. They're completely mediocre headphones under a popular name

Rated 1 out of 5 by Xtina Sounds great, doesn't last.
Received as a gift for christmas. I had to get replacements twice already. This third pair just gave out on me too. One earbud stops working everytime. And on this pair, the wire has frayed and split where it connects to the connector piece to the device. I listen every day at work so I use them a lot. But definitely NOT durable construction.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dan the Man Back to the drawing board.
I have had to exchange these at the store twice and im about to bring it in for a third time. The first ones I got, right out of the box, the sound in the left ear bud was lower than the right. I exchanged them at the store and got a second pair. With the second pair there was nothing wrong with the earbuds. The sound was amazing. When I was listening to music, it was like listening to it for the first time. I heard things in the songs that i have never heard before. The draw back was that when I tried to turn it up with the controltalk keypad, it wouldn't work. The up button was stuck down. Now if they were some cheap head phones, I wouldn't care, but these were alot of money, so I returned them, AGAIN. Now, the third ones I have now, the left one hardly works. I have to hold the cord a certain way to hear anything. So I will be returning these as well, but this time I think I will just get my money back. There seems to be a reoccurring problem with the left side of these. These are problems that I would expect with cheap head phones. it might have to do with the way they are placed in the box, but whatever the cause of the problem im still 3 for 3 with bad earbuds. This is definetly not worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by [*] Not Worth the Money!!!!
went through 3 pairs of these earphones within 2 months total! didn't even handle them roughly, but yet something broke or stopped working on its own. not gonna lie, they have great sound but didn't understand how the mouth piece and one side of the earphones could stop working in an instant. definitely not worth it. too bad i didn't realize it after buying my first pair

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mr.Ma2ts Very DISAPOINTED!!!
I'm very disappointed with this product! [...]. I'm on my second pair and at this point I don't think I want a third pair. The problem with the first pair that I owned was one of the earbuds became significantly lower than the other. I took them back to [...] and received a new pair. It's been about three months now and the left earbud shorted out completely. I use my ibeats daily, and I thought that they were a premium product that could last a year atleast. It's been seven months and my second pair has already failed. I can't recommend these failure prone ibeats.
