Rated 1 out of 5 by E RYE Great fit, but sound stopped working
Had these earphones for only 3 months then one day the sound stopped working, it only works when I take the earbuds off and with them on the sound Is VERY distorted, have tried using different mp3 players and still nothing seems to work. Please help! I would recommend to my friends but not sure if this happens to everyone else's earphones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Brendan 2 Different Sets 2 Problems
I bought of power beats excited to use for workouts, the first set I bought I had problems with the controls within day. I returned that set to get another set hoping my problems would be through, I was wrong, on the second set one of the earphones did not work. I returned that pair and bought a different brand. I wish the power beats worked because the setup is great, the performance was brutal though. Hopefully they work through the glitches and put out a better product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pjd1021 Iphone controls broke
I'm not a audiophile but the sounds was great, easy to use and they looked good. But not long after having purchased them the iphone controls stopped working. I could not use the play/pause/Next track/Previous track button and the volume adjust buttons did not work either. I was not too happy to have that happen so soon after I got them and for the price I paid for them also. Seeing how many other people had the same issue also, I can't recommend them at that price.

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 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 speedy2 Not Designed Well for athletes
Just had to return my third pair to the store yesterday. I am so disappointed in these earphones. Thought they would be the answer to my workout need for music and be able to take calls if I had to. But after one workout each pair of these earphones that I have exchanged(I've had the white ones and the black ones) stopped working correctly. The music still played but the push button control and the mike did not function correctly. I don't know if it is from sweat or all the movements from exercising but if they are going to be marketed to athletes then they need to be designed for athletes. We understand if things needs to be more robust so it can take the rigor of movement and sweating. Again I am really disappointed in these earphones and hope the design flaw would be fixed and someone will let me know when it is. at this time I cannot recommend these earphones especially for athletes that do a lot of sweating and movements during their workouts. Back to the drawing board......looking for a good workout earphone, any suggestions?

The controls buttons stopped working on each pair I bought, 7 in total. I will not be considering buying until they redesign the controls buttons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FCP716 Disappointed in Beats
I purchased these beats on on 5/6/14(Delivered5/9/14). I finally got around to calling beats today (6/12/14) to return them because they are not the most comfortable headphones in the world and I am told I missed the mark by 3 days. I realistically probably did not open them until the Monday after the weekend they were delivered (May 12). I even told the supervisor who i spoke with that I planed to re-invest in beats for a more comfortable pair of earphones, but the answer was still no. Additionally, I have been a Beats customer for years, I have a beats pill xl, studios, studio V2s, urbeats, tours2, and powerbears. I am a little shocked in their customer service and will have to recommend against this product, and any other beats product, solely because of the experience.

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.
