Rated 1 out of 5 by Moschti Poor Quality - Great Sound while it last
I owned two pairs of these headphones. The first pair broke down after 2 weeks of use. I carry my Ipod in my pocket while im in the Gym or running, so i guess the plug couldn't handle the twists and turns. Returned them, got a new pair, these ones lasted a month and then broke down again for the same reason. They are advertised as sports headphones but they can't handle the rough use. Not worth the Price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JAY Get better!!!
I got these headphones because I thought they would blow others out of the water, well they did until I started to actually use them for what they were made for! I have had to replace them 6 times lucky had warranty. If its not the earbuds going out its the remote making my Ipod skip. I finally realized that its the mic portion of the headset that is causing the problems do not let any sweat get near that thing(impossible) I would not recommend this product for anyone who wants to use them for working out.

Lost audio in right speaker after 3 months. Audio in the left speaker goes in and out. Volume adjustment button no longer works. Absolutely not worth the [$]price tag.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Very poor quality
Sound is great. But after 2 pairs died on me just after 2 months of use, I had enough!!! Functions don't work on remote, sound fades in and out, and finally it just gave out, no sound at all!!! What's the point of great sound, if it only last a couple of months. It's pretty messed up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nick the honest reviewer WORSE THAN FREE IPHONE 4 HEADPHONES!
If you have any intention of using these to replace your FREE iphone headphones while talking on the phone while moving, stay as far away from these as you can!I am returning these after 1 hour. Seriously, 1 hour. That's all I needed to determine that these are absolutely stupid. My gripe with these pertains to wind noise during a phone call. It is absolutely horrible. HORRIBLE! Like, 2001 horrible. There is no way that [$] headphones that are marketed for a "neat" iPhone/iPod controller should have more wind noise than the free headphones that came with my iPhone. I wanted to use these running or biking and I couldn't even have a conversation with someone while walking through a parking lot because there was so much wind distraction.If you don't need to use these while moving and talking on a phone, then by all means buy them, but why wouldn't you just buy the better sounding over ear ones for the same price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dave the Bose User Finally got some good headphones
I tried to like my Powerbeats, ignoring the reviews about reliability. After 2 pairs both failing because of sweat on the switch. I got some Bose IE2's. These: stay in your ears, look better, dont fail and the bass is also better. Wish I had found them earlier, Powerbeats had better packaging, that's about it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Power lifter They are great FOR A MONTH!
I lift weights with this product (when it works). The cord is so narrow that often time it shorts out! I have returned this faulty product 4 times in one year!

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 brook22 3rd time's not a charm....
I have had 3 pairs of Powerbeats in the last year. I've had to replace each pair within 3 months because the cord controls stopped working. In addition, the fit is loose, and keeps them from being completely in my ear for me to get the full sound. Wasted time and money; still haven't been able to get a refund for my third pair. I would not recommend these headphones.
