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.
Purchased in November 2018 at Officeworks for $256.00.
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.

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.

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.

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.
Beats the expensive
They are good but a little expensive for what they actually offer. There quite a few other alternatives that can be picked instead off this. I bought this for casual listening in my free time and it is still working well i. That aspect. However i cannot recommend it as it is expensive.
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, 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!
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.
This headphone is just okay. I bought it about one year ago. It worked well during that time. However, it does not work well today. There something wrong with the voice of the headphone. Besides, the quality of the headphone is just okay. Many other headphones have better quality than it.
Good Sound and Fit, Poor Reliability!
These headphones are great when it comes to sound quality and voulme. They are slightly bulky however fit well over the ear and don't fall out which is important when exercising. Where they fall down however is that the microphone and speaker control is not sweat resistant and as it hangs on your neck it is prone to breaking. I've had to return them 3 times in 6 months because of this and while Beats/Apple are happy to replace, it is an inconvience i'd rather avoid.
Questions & Answers
Do these earphones pair with androids?? Or is there big problems with it pairing??
Does anyone who wears glasses wear these headphones for running ??? Your thoughts please !!
I try to wear sunnies while wearing these on a run. And it's practically impossible to stop it all from falling off my face
