Great gadget for a good workout
Serves the purpose of a wireless sports headphone, and lets you workout in style. Sound is great and design is simple but stylish at the same time. No issues so far, but a search of other reviews have warned of potential issues with battery and control. It might be a little hard to justify the purchase if the anticipated issues are not covered by the warranty.
battery issue, less bass, not fit with glasses
I bought Powerbeat 2 March last year. And today it is totally dead. no charging, no led. I found all 3 wireless earplug I used have battery issue. JBL, Bose and Beats, the longest is the Bose which last almost one year but I used it almost every day during morning run and Gym. The PowerBeats 2 was for my wife and only been use less than once per week and that is why it last more than one year. but total running time is less than 3 months if being used in my way. My Bose was broken after 10 months and I picked up my wife powerbeats 2 two weeks...ago. The sound was clear but no bass unless pushed really tight into ear but I wear glasses which is fun to have this kind of over the ear same time with glasses legs. I am currently have no confidence with any wireless earphones. average life time is around 4-9 months for price between $169-$250. really worth it ???
Great sound, Storage pouch is average
I purchased my headset in Jul 17 and was initially extremely happy with the sound quality and fit. About 6 weeks ago the arm on the right earphone detached and then 2 to 3 weeks later the left arm detached. I believe that the storage pouch was the main contributing reason for the arms detaching as it is a very tight fit. Especially when you are constantly getting the earphones in and out for use. As I bought the earphones thru Kogan I'm still waiting on them to assess the earphones for warranty replacement, its been about 3 weeks now so in hin...dsight it may have been better to purchase direct from Apple or JB. Update: neither Kogan or Apple would replace or repair the earphone arms. Apparently this fault is not covered under the 12 month warranty. Not happy at all.. not likely to purchase powerbeats again.
Does the job
Sound is great. They stay on/fit well. I use them at the gym and have not had issues with them falling out as I have had with others. Easy to connect and no issues with quality. Bought them a month ago and have had no problems with them at all. Had beats previously which lasted about 2 years through regular use at the gym (sweat etc).
These earphones are perfect for exercising. They stay in while walking or running, all while transmitting a great sound quality. The only issue I encountered was that the left side stopped working after two weeks. However, Apple has a great return/exchange policy and efficiently resolved the problem at no extra cost.

Great sound, bad fit
Sound is great, but I kept having to adjust them no matter what size plug I used. Ended up returning them to Apple within 2 weeks (they have a great return policy). Not worth the money at all. I ended up getting BeatsX instead - as I was still happy with the sound quality - and much happier for it!
i swear by these head phones, they dont fall out when running or walking. They are loud and your able to block out everyone and everything. i purchased these over a year ago and they work so well. i definately recommend them there a bit pricey but you can get them on special and so worth it
Can't go to the gym without these!
I have always looked around for the perfect headphones and finally I have found the best quality to zone me out when I am exercising. I would trust no other brand now and would recommend everyone to try!! I will defiantly be buying some for my partner for Christmas as he is always steeling mine!
Great for Gym
Perfect size, very efficient and are kept out of my way when I’m at the gym. The sound is great, and they even look good on.
They were reasonably priced which is a good thing, and I would recommend them to anyone who goes to the gym and likes to listen to music, they don’t get caught on anything or fall out they are a great make.

Comfortable fit, comfortable headphones
Worth every cent. Really rich and deep sound, not to be under-estimated. Connectivity with the iPhone is brilliant: always connects, unlike other bluetooth headphones. Takes some time to get used to the fit with the in-ear pieces, but plenty of different earpieces. Great headphones overall, don't miss out on these.
They are awesome!
They have Good audio quality compared to standard samsung headphones. The wireless is great for gym as the cords always get in the way. Custom ear buds help fit so they do nt feel uncomfortable. They are abit pricey but worth it. They never fall off and i would recommend them if you are going to get a lot of use.
Nice but expensive
They are very good in terms of sound quality and design, however the price is a bit steep. I believe they should be priced cheaper as it obviously does't cost that much to make them. Besides from price they are a pretty good product with a nice,simple,sleek design that is user friendly.
Perfect training accessory. Sit so well on the ears and never really have to fix them unlike so many other earphones. Never fall off even while doing explosive plyo workouts. Perfect!
The sound quality is also amazing!
Been using them for a while and the experience is very different from beats headphones and all other earphones I have used up until this one.

Best headphones for the gym
I was a bit cautious about purchasing these as they were quite expensive and i had no idea about headphones and which were good ones. After purchasing them however i cant leave without them! The volume is loud and very good quality and its very rare i have to adjust them when i am running. Only fault is not having the option to skip a song on the headphoned but go on the phone and not knowing how much battery is left before charging.
Best earphones ever
Received a red pair of these earphones as a gift and can't believe I put up with wired ones for so long!
Powerbeats have an awesome built-in bass and enough volume to drown out the loud music at my gym. The wireless technology is easy to use and works well with my phone or iPod. The earphones have an adequate bluetooth range too - I can step 5-10m away and still get signal but if I'm going further, I just pause them as the music eventually dies out anyway.
I've had one problem with my Powerbeats - the tiny little flap that covers the charging...
Good Headphones For Gym
A great investment if you like music and work out. It has good range and I can leave my phone in storage and phone and it connects with Bluetooth. means no discruption during the work out and you can take and receive calls through this device. Easy to connect with most of phones and app.
GREAT SOUND but a bit uncomfortable
The sound of this things are great, very punchy for working out which is what they are made for, the Bluetooth connection is very good, the microphone tho, not as good, when using the microphone on calls they don't hear me as clear and I do, but then again, they are more for working out. The cord in the back it's a bit annoying, cause sticks to your skin, so every time you rotate your head the cord goes with the neck and moves your headphones out of place, but in the long run, they are great, VERY VERY easy to pair with an iPhone, very quick! IMPRESSED!
THIS IS GREAT
Easy to use , long life battery. easy to connect with iphone through bluetooth.
perfect for sports- it will not drop while you doing the exercise.
Great sound quality.
however if you wear it for long time it will hurts you ears for some reason.
definitely will recommend with all people who love sports and listen to the music.
I would recommend Beats Powerbeats 3 ear phones to anyone. They are comfortable to wear and have crystal clear sound. they are easy to set up, link with your devices and charge fast. Charge on ear phones lasts a good length of time. These would be great for children and adults.
Purchased these when I upgraded to the new iPhone. Love how I don't have a cord getting in the way when I go jogging now and I love the clarity of the music. The volume goes quite high so I can also tune out my children fighting. No not really! But it's tempting. All and all they weren't the cheapest costing over $200 but best quality headphones I've had so far.
