Rated 2 out of 5 by JD2012 terrible quality, if you want something that lasts longer than a month go for something else.
Love the sound, don't get me wrong the bass is excellent with a balanced mid range and equal treble. £80 product and the quality lasts a month. At that rate it's working out to be the highest expense per month that I have. The right earphone has failed on me twice, my first pair was within 3 weeks of owning them and the right one cut out completely. And me being the person I am I thought I would put it down to a first time unlucky occurrence and so I purchased yet another pair. I for one love bass heavy music and I can't live without house, trap and dubstep. And it would be brilliant if the earphones lasted as long as the song. Very annoyed customer and I can say for definite that after this I will never even look at another Beats product again.

SO this is my 4th pair of beats and they only last a few months. I take them everywhere I go and pack them away properly and within a few months, I seem to always loose sound from one ear and then eventually the other. I love beats as they sound incredible, but they just do not last long. $400+ later, only one ear is working... :-(

Rated 2 out of 5 by Matt Salt This product broke after 2 months
I received these christmas of 2014 and by February 20th, the right earbud broke and stopped playing music. Three days later, the switch on the earphones that controls the volume broke and did not work again. For 100 buck headphones that break within two months, these are honestly not worth buying. You can get just as good of headphones that will last much longer for much lesser of a price. I would not recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MAK Very disappointed.
I've bought my son two pairs of URBEATS in the past two years. Each set has broken. He is a teenager and has taken care of everything else I have gotten him so I fail to believe these were mistreated. Coincidentally, they broke very soon after the warranty was up, so no luck in getting replacements. One pair, ok, i'll pay the $100 to get another pair because they do sound that good, and feel that comfortable. But TWO pair?! not coincidental. Will NOT be buying him a third pair. I've had a pair of Walmart cheap-os that lasted five times as long as BOTH of these pairs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kirby Great sound. Zero durability
I have had this product for a little over a year and have had to sent it in for repairs twice now when the only time that they are in use is while I'm walking through the city or sitting at my desk. The sound is great but it is not worth $100 dollars if you have to have them repaired every 7 months. Durability is not something that Beats should be advertising for this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hannah295 Initially great. Now broken, very sad
I bought these last summer before I went on holiday as my family couldn't stand the poor quality of my old ones. I was initially so impressed with the sound and preferred them over my over-ear headphones as they were much comfier still with the great sound. However, the left ear with the control buttons no longer works. The buttons work but no sound comes through which is really sad as my right ear is partially deaf so the left ear is the one I primarily use. Initially a great product, sad about what happened after general usage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Xam Not Worth It
This is the second pair of the exact same product from this company I have purchased. This is also the second time were these One-hundred dollar ear buds have broken. Granted these ear buds sound fantastic and can give a slight bit of control over what you are listening to but after four months the right ear speaker began to short out. They were not miss treated and nothing extreme was done with them for this to happen. General everyday use, and still they wore out in record time. I have purchased pairs of ear buds for a tenth the price which last longer than these. They would constantly slip from my ears no matter what tip was used, and they can't be used on half of the phones out there for the expensive mic attachment.
If you like paying hundreds for a good sound which wont last and is way too expensive for what you get, buying these over and over again is right for you. If not stay away. Poor design poor comfort and outrageous price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lynk Fell in love at first,,,horrible after!!
The speakers need to be a little louder with more bass/ audio focus and the weight of the control talk causes the earbud to fall out the ear. The speaker on my pair blew [...]
