Rated 1 out of 5 by newrkv Where's the bass?
I used to have a pair of Powerbeats back when they first came out. I loved them,but they were stolen. I just bought a new pair last night, and the first thing I noticed when I opened it was to horribly poor design. They felt so cheap and plastic, like kids earphones. I was trying to give the benefit of the doubt on the poor design changes until I listened to them. It seems like the entire quality of the product was downgraded. The sound is cheap and no better than regular earbuds that come with phones these days. There is no bass and the sound is cheap and airy. I will be returning my Powerbeats and going with another product. Im upset that in the effort to update something, they made it worse.

I bought these less than a year ago, and have only used them a total of five times since then. Suddenly, today, they don't work. These things are made of glass. Buy something else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by akelly728 SWEAT KILLS THE CORD!
So, I got these for the sole purpose of using these during my workouts and unfortunately I can't even control the volume or switch songs consistently. As soon as I start sweating, and even at times when I'm just wearing them on the plane, the controls on the cord stop working. Also, the sweat seems to mess with the controls and it randomly skips songs in the middle of my current song. So frustrating - every workout I just pull them out and put them to the side. This type of money on ear buds and can't even use them for the intended purpose. Even the marketing is mis-leading - shown on commercials during a basketball workout.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ecole772 um.....these have bass?
my friends dad has a pair of these and he took them to school and I said can I try them. he let me try them on so I put the beats on. the first thing I was disappointed about was the comfort it took me about 2-5 minuets to get the on. the ear buds were like rocks scratching on my ears. So after like 10 minutes I took the off I looked at my friend and I said. these are beats he said ikr I told him these have no bass no sound quality dang and my ears were hurting. I said to him even my jvc have more bass then these. I am like a person who loves a clean tight bass that will make my ear feel like there viperatering iv done that with my Sony x10 and that was awesome I still waiting to get 500$ for either the new studios or the pros and imam compare my x10 to the studios or pros. so dre u need some improving to do on these beats. I loved the way they looked on me if was cool there stylish fashionable and all that other good stuff

Rated 1 out of 5 by MitchMacD Worst Head Phones I have ever owned *way over priced
Got these things in replace of my UR beats, because they did not have UR beats in stock. Literally took them out of the box and the volume control system on the wire was broken. Also the right side of my ear phones has a crackle in it whenever music is played over half volume. You hear it really bad when playing techno music or something high pitched. Literally had these things for two days and hated them, im trying to get my UR beats back from this company. PLEASE DON'T BUY!

I was so excited when I bought these, but they were really just garbage. From the getgo, the mic and volume control didn't work with my Droid or iPad. As time went on, one ear would intermittently cut in and out. Eventually that ear stopped working completely. I took the wire apart to replace the standard mini plug with a new one, but the wire inside is so tiny that it is nearly impossible to even strip the wire.

Im a runner averaging about 25 miles a week and i bought these because i wanted headphones that would stay in while running. So disappointing they don't stay in at all! So not worth the price!

Went through 3 pairs and all 3 pairs failed. Used them for working out and a little sweat gets on them and they become useless!!!! Don't waste your money on these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Heath the Runner NOT FOR EXERCISE
The sound is unreal, however i bought them to exercise. once the slightest bit of moisture (mostly from sweating) gets into the click control it shorts and pauses itself and raises lowers volume randomly. By making a homemade moisture barrier it lasted a bit longer, 2 months at 4x/week use before the left earpiece completely shorted out. I traded it in under warrenty and the new pair does the same thing. WORTHLESS. Im taking them back and getting Bose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by G money They will not last
Got them for my birthday, felt good, wore them to the gym a few times and that was that. Sweat ruined the finish, fell apart and couldn't put one of the earbuds back together. I cannot justify paying another $150 for another pair. The case was nicest thing about them.
