Disposable pieces of rubbish

These are the 3rd different sets of Beats (the other 2 broke even after repair) I have purchased and was under the assumption they would be suitable for working out. I was wrong. Two weeks after the Apple warranty, they just stopped working. Took them into an Apple authorised service repairer for fixing under Consumer Warranty only to be told they were purchased in France (no, never been but would like to one day). Apparently if you buy Apple products on Kogan, they aren't always covered under Australian regulations. Apple want to charge more to repair the Beats than what they cost. Waste of money. Both Beats and Apple have lost me. Show details

overpriced, low quality built

I have had it for around 2 years, and use it every day. The battery is quite good and fast charging. Sound quality is good. However,
the plastic cover over the ear was torn after almost 3 months, and the wire inside was pushing into my skin, and it had to use wire tape to conceal it. secondly, it catches a lot of around you if you are taking over the phone. for instance, I can't use it if I'm in a shopping center. I believe for this level of quality this earphone is highly overpriced.  Show details

spend you money elsewhere

I've gone through 4 pairs of these in as many years, 2 on warranty and 2 I bought. While the sound quality and fit is really good I found that if you use them while exercising then the problems begin.
When i sweat it runs down the cable to the control box which is not sweat proof. The controls then stop working. I tried taping them up, and even wedging them above my ear but no luck, every single pair failed in the same way. I even wrote to beats to mention this and got no response. There are cheaper and more reliable ear buds out there.  Show details

Good to begin with but become faulty

These airphones are great to begin with, good clear sound, reasonably comfortable to wear and very good while doing exercise and moving about. However this is all ruined by faults. My first pair stopped working completely after about 10 months. A new pair through warranty and now same thing, except they drain themselves flat and now it won’t even turn on. Past warranty period now, not worth the price. Show details

Rubbish product and way over priced

Battery life is great, but the sound volume is not loud enough to hear a movie on a plane. I have owned them for about a year now and they are falling apart. Ear hook rubber fell apart and the volume button also only works for volume up now. Would expect this quality from a $50 pair of head phone not from a $259 pair. I have owned Beats Studio 3's and they were great, but these are really poor. Show details

Great sound, poor build

This was my first wireless earphone and they were awesome! I use this for gym and it was perfect for all different types of exercises. The sound was pretty good but the thing about the earphones was that it broke easily. Show details

Great sound But not very durable break easy

I am on my 4th pair of Powerbeats 3 they always tend to have issues each pair I have had lasted only about 6 months battery life is good Sound wise they are the best sounding sports headphones I have had for the size but $250AUD every 6 months has just become to much I will no longer buy them I would rather buy something that is cheaper and more durable and I would advise others to do the same

Sound Ok, not loud enough

I just bought these today. They fit comfortably, but the sound quality is just average, and I can't get nearly as much volume from them as I can from my iSport Intensity headphones. It's not loud enough with a lot of songs I'm listening to. For 130 bucks, it's not worth it. I'll be returning them.

Amazing pair of headphones

Beats have a class to themselves; a benefit alone. Apple's W1 chip allows great connectivity towards iOS devices. The one downfall to these headphones would be its lack of noise isolation, but other than that, it has great audio, especially bass. Good colour choices are available, and while these headphones might be a bit expensive against its competitors, if you aren't on a too tight of a budget, its a great buy.

Great but expensive

Great earphone but little bit expensive. Perfect for GYM or running activity.

Sound quality is great. Excellent noise cancellation mic. Bluetooth connectivity is good with the iPhone or iPad. Compare to my previous wireless earphones, Powerbeats 3 has the best wireless range inside the house.

One and only problem is removing charging cable from the earphone is bit hard. If try hard, there is chance to break it.

Lifesavours

Best connectivity and battery life. They also stay secure during a run and have a good noise cancelling level to allow me to stay focused and on task when at work. Since the day I bought them they have never skipped a beat! I would highly recommend especially to any runner who is sick of cords hanging everywhere

Great for sports

Happy to choose this product to teenagers mainly using for sports. Compact and fit any occasions. It is wired between 2 ear phones but less worry for losing one piece like another product if you thinking to buy for children.

Quality is good enough and the maximum noise isn't go too loud so it protects teenagers ears.
