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.
Purchased in March 2018.
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.
Purchased in October 2017 at Myer for $259.00.

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.
These headphones were part of an Apple Air purchase recently. They're the first bluetooth product I've been really impressed with... . My first experience using them was to watch a movie on the Air, with the headphones cranked up, in a very crowded hospital waiting room. No-one else was disturbed by the film score... and I heard none of the other folk in the waiting room. So effective were the headphones that a nurse sent to find me (to come and collect my wife) tried several times before I snapped out of the cinema experience... . Noise cancelling? You bet!~
About to fly to Seattle, then Vancouver, then Victoria BC. These headphone will be indispensable... .
I’ve had these headphones for 12 months now, I have had no trouble connecting to IOS or Android devices, but the connection quality is vastly different. While connected to IOS product the connection is clear and strong, but with android devices the connection is very patchy, to the point you can’t walk with your phone in your pocket as the connection keeps dropping out.
The headphones themselves are a little delicate and the ear bud broke off mine while in their case. Super glue fixed the break, but shouldn’t be needed on $250 plus headphones.
Overall I would buy again, but only to use with Apple products.
Have had these for about 6 months now. They are very comfortable earphones, with excellent sound quality -- very crisp and good amount of bass. Great for running as they don't slip and slide and can easily change songs or pick up a call in a middle of a workout.
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.

Brought these headphones about a month ago and it has been all positive experiences since.
The sound quality is very crisp, and the bass provides a good back drop to some of the deeper reggae/rnb music. I found the wireless feature to be a great addition, making it easier to workout and move around.
A little pricy, but if you are looking for long term value I definitely recommend it.
A great pair of headphones
This pair of Powerbeats wireless came as a free gift from Apple store with the purchase of the MacBook Air. My daughter loves them as they stick to the ears perfectly and they hang on to the ears very tight. Without the wires, she can move a lot more freely. Highly recommended.

Good headphones with excellent quality, love them
These earphones are amazing because they are bluetooth so there's no wires, the quality is through the roof amazing for the size of them, best of all is the charging ability of them as you can charge them for 2 hours and they will give you 12 hours, or you can charge for 5 mins and it will give you enough for a workout. The only thing is that when you sweat the earphones kinda slide out of your ear and you have to readjust them, other than that i love them

Good sound, easy to pair.
Good sound and ear hook design for on the go. One of the most comfortable headset ever without the wire tangling issues. If you have an iphone 7 and above, pairing the beats is the easiest thing to do. The headset is sweat proof not water proof which is a minor issue, but havent had issues when using in the rain.
Great use for gym
Does not interfere with gym workouts when around your neck. Battery life is quite good - I would normally charge it once or twice a week. It feels light around the ears and yet still able to cancel out noise from the outside. Bluetooth range is generally reasonable. Sound quality is good and you are able to make calls and control the volume wirelessly.
Only use it when I'm running in the gym, so far so good.
I was hesitant to by any expensive headphones since I don't really mind too much about sounds quality, I usually just use them for when I'm running in the gym and so far so good. I purchased the headphone for about $99 on ozsale and I've had them for a couple of months now. It's very convenient, comfortable, light weight, and easy to set up. I forgot to turn it off a few times and the battery died when I tried to use it again. It takes very little time to charge, and last for a good time.
My partner brought it for me . At starting days I thought it was so expensive but after I used it I thought it's worth for money . It's wireless and we can feel all the songs when we wear it because of the sound clarity and noise control .
Great Wireless Earphones
Very comfortable and connects to the phone fast. They have a very short recharge time which comes in handy when you need it on the go. It does get worn out a bit over time though but I mainly use it for exercise. In saying that it is extremely hardy and has survived the wash a few times without any damage.
Great wireless earphones for athletes and sports enthusiasts.
I have been using these for the gym and during extensive exercise periods. Great on ear, lovely sound and with Apple's latest iphone chips, extreme ease of connecting via bluetooth almost instantly. On the go use for travel is average as there is a little irritation with the design of the earphones. Perfect for a 1-2 hr workout. These headphones may be a bit pricey, however on the bargain, they are definitely worth the money
Great exercise wireless headset!
Perfect for the person thats out and about and doesn't like wires always getting in their way.
Very easy to pair with an iPhone and connects/disconnects easily. Battery life (even after 12 months of owning it) is VERY GOOD at around 16-18 hours of playback time. Charging time is very fast with the Quick Charge option where ~5mins of charge gives you ~1 hour of use if you forget to charge it the night before.
Would have given it 5 stars but when you are sweaty the one ear hooks have a tendency to keep slipping out. Other than that minor fault, the make quality is perfect.
Good earphones but bit pricey
I am an audio lover and have been using Beats for the last couple of years. These are great earphones but the price is bit pricey compared to the other brands. I believe you can get a similar quality for less money but then again it is cool to be wearing Beats ;)
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.
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
