    Good sound, but that's the only positive with these headphones. The cord wears when you turn your head and now after having these for just a month the volume control on the cord no longer works. And it hasn't even rained when I've run.

    Unruly quality. Returns them to the store and buys some other brand.

    Used my rigorously for 4 years without comment. Ran, cycled, exercised every day and they kept the measure to the last. I was not careful about them, but threw them in my backpack with everything else. So in the end, they brought it with them. But I'm really impressed with the quality. The sound is good too!

    Used my kids for almost 3 years and can't say I'm anything but happy. The battery lasts about 3-4 gym workouts and during the workout you do not notice the handsets more than that it is crucially good sound quality.

    Then you might not, as I read below in the assessment field, rinse them under the crane, these are no miracle watches but very good value for money.

    Good as training headphones. Sound with a lot of bass, good battery life and does not fall off.

    Read the reviews on the apples website and ponder: https://www.apple.com/shop/reviews/ML8V2LL/A/powerbeats3-wireless-earphones-black

    After two complaints I am now on my third copy of Powerbeats3. They work so far because I avoided washing them under running water. One may think that they should endure more when they are marketed as water- and sweat-resistant sports headphones. In addition, one ear clip has come loose but it is no worse than gluing it again.

    The positive thing about these headphones is that they have good sound pressure, much thanks to the fact that the base is already boosted so that it does not need to be made in an equalizer. They also sit comfortably in the ears without falling off, they have long battery life and the bluetooth pairing is completely flawless.

    But, since sustainability is so poor, I can unfortunately not recommend.

    Sits well around the ears, likes the sound with a lot of bass. Very good battery life.

    Worst quality.

    Both "ear troops" loosened after a few months of sparing use.

    After 9 months of sparing use, they are now completely dead. Can not load anymore.

    Apple store refused to fix the original damage (ear hook) on standard warranty and now they even refuse to take them for investigation according to consumer purchases. I think they are aware of the quality issues and try to escape the cost of this low-quality product.

    By the way, okay sound and the W1 chip is a little brilliant, very good battery life and the integration with iOS is smooth.

    Top notch in everything except the mic.

    You can hardly walk / walk out when it blows a bit, so you can not conduct a normal conversation over the mic, as it sucks up the wind noise.

    Everyone who writes how bad these headphones are have probably associated with hip hop beats.

    These headphones need to be recorded for 20 hours before you can notice the sound ....

    The sound is great for heavy prog techno, minimalist techno thats ... gym headphones.

    Have nothing negative to write more than buying a queue! +++

    Do not have any major issues with sound quality and such, but do not get them to work as hands-free as me. There's nothing to mess up a little while you get a call on the phone. It takes more than a minute to trick them and make them feel good. Then you'll find that petty button and hold it for a second (though sometimes it's closer to five). No clear feedback in the button, so you do not know if you enter it or not.

    Sometimes they are connected to the phone, and you can not get any sound until you turn them off, turn them on and re-connect them. Pleasantly frustrated when it takes so long to answer a regular phone call.

    No battery warning appears. Suddenly they only play a little truddelutt and shut down. My Jabra says "battery low" when they get closer to the end, and then you have at least a quarter to find a charger or cord.

    Small plus for range.

    PowerBeats3 (PB3) is an upgrade of PowerBeats 2, which I used daily for about a year before I bought PB3. The differences are that the sound has changed, the specified battery life doubles, the Bluetooth range far longer, the remote control on the cord has been exchanged, and the speaker on the wrench is extended. This is how I experience it in practice.

    The sound: PB2 had a basic sound, which in itself is not good. Also voices in eg a podcast became noticeably darker. Overall, though, they sound good, though not amazing, in most cases, and because, unlike a classic in-ear, PowerBeats does not close close to the ear (this is deliberate), sounds sound both in and out. In practice, Beats has to compensate for this design with a constant boost of extra bass and higher volume. Partly to exclude disturbing sounds from the surroundings, but also to make them sound at all, because bass runs and tones leak between speakers and ear canals.

    PB3 has a lot less bass and a cleaner sound, and under perfect circumstances (you are sitting completely still in a quiet room), they also sound better. However, under normal circumstances, they actually make much worse. PB3 sounds much lower than PB2 at the same volume setting and the lack of bass is almost always noticeable, giving a lifeless and hollow sound. In short, in theoretical cases, they can sound really good. In practice, they do not sound good at all.

    Battery life: The only reason I bought the PB3 was doubling battery life. My PB2 was used so diligently that even charging was not enough every night. Certainly, PB3 is better, but here too you can distinguish theory and practice. At first use, PB3 managed approximately 80% of the estimated battery life. Normally it can handle 60%. In some cases it can reach 80%, provided all circumstances are perfect, eg. with the mobile placed on the table 20 centimeters from the headphone and unobstructed line of sight. The battery life is good, in all honesty, but it does not live up to the promised in practice.

    Remote Control: The PB2 remote control was sealed in rubber and felt very durable. It was not always easy to feel or hear that you pressed it, though. On PB3, it is exchanged for a more standardized RemoteTalk control in plastic. RemoteTalk controls are built-in, and although they have improved over the years, they are still not very durable. Sure, the sound is nicer, but I had preferred the old remote.

    An exceptionally disturbing feature is that the new remote control produces really very disturbing sounds. When I twist my head, it clings slightly when the cable is stretched. As I walk, it's scratching sound that the cable is touching the cheeks or the like. This is not uncommon in itself, but a problem that was non-existent on PB2.

    Bluetooth range: Exceptional. There is no other way of saying it. It's quite shocking how it's technically possible. I live in a stone house with thick walls. If I walk around a wall with my Bose QC35, they die immediately. With PB3, I can leave the mobile in the living room and take a turn on the roof if I want to.

    Speaker: This is the small plastic particle that goes into the ear and where the magic happens. The speaker was quite short on PB2, which never affected me, but something that some complained about. On PB3, it's too long for me, which means they're not very nice. In plain text, PB2 was absolutely perfect for me, I could even. forget I had them on me, while PB3 would like to take off as soon as possible. It should be mentioned, however, that PB3 may well be more beautiful on those who had problems with PB2, which in all cases may be a majority.

    To summarize how PB3 stands as an upgrade:
    The sound: Much worse.
    Battery life: Better.
    Remote Control: Worse. Especially with all the disturbing sounds.
    Scope: Much better.
    Speaker: Individual (either better or worse)

    PB3 is one step ahead and two steps back. Pay as I recommended the price for these and you get what you deserve ... If you do not need a long range or battery life, buy PB2 instead. They are cheaper and actually have several advantages. If you really want PB3, be sure to wait for a deal.

    Worst I've had. As so many others have written, I have submitted them to service. After the first time they worked for a while. Cleaned in the boxes I have receipts saved, lots of receipts including this receipt typically dropped when they needed it again a month later. So now they are just rubbish. Also paid in cash so they make them impossible to get something out.

    So do not buy these! Do not tolerate sweat ..

    As many others wrote, they do not tolerate sweat. Mina worked for two weeks. Then they started losing contact or reboot / shut down completely. Especially about 40-50min into the gym pass when you get pretty sweaty. Low on "dry" then they worked again. Nothing I can recommend to ngn in addition to sweat free prommenades or just having home ...
    Then I had a full shot to advertise them and found that they did not find any "wrong" service on the naps .... but that's another story ...

    Incredibly good fit. They are stuck when exercising. The base is completely sick. I do not think everyone will like it. But if you use to listen to hip hop then these headphones are something to check on battery time and the wireless is super good. Got them on sale at 1100. Completely pleased. Had jaybird X2 and X3. Before. I think Powerbeats are better for training.

    Have just sent my pair for the third time because of the same mistake as everyone else - they stop working when you start sweating. Incredibly poor quality, worse than Powerbeats 2, which at least worked a year before breaking apart.

    I suspect that the next couple I get will also stop working and then I will cancel my purchase. Although Apple is courteous and sends return boxes in no time, I want to use my naps - do not send them back all the time.

    1/10.

    After sweating three pairs, I can say that these fools do not keep what they promise. Very sad when I liked everything else with them, they are good at exercise and have good sound. I used the kids to run and they worked a few passes. Then there was always the same visa. As I jumped for about four to five kilometers, they started shutting down in the middle of the pass. Just until I started sweating. The problem is probably that the controller on the cord does not withstand sweat / moisture. After switching three times, I finally got to advertise the tricks and this makes me really unable to recommend them to anyone who will use the tricks for training.

    Should you only use the napkins at home or for walking, it may be something, but otherwise: look ahead.

    This is the first and most likely the last Beats product I buy. Disrepair. Expensive are they too.

    Fully approved headphones at a slightly high price.

    I use these when I'm riding a bike; In the past, I have had problems with other fools dying or not wanting to sit in place but I was pleasantly surprised by how well they are sitting. It was very easy to connect to the phone and I have not had any problems with the audio or bluetooth.

    However, the headphones feel quite plastic and the sound quality is not that good, I expected better sound for this price.

    Had mine for 6 months now. Sitting great during exercise, that's all from lift to run. The sound is very good too. Just need to charge them once a week. Then I train 4 times with a bus.

    Works really well for me after 1 month + usage.
    Ok sounds.
    Sits well in the ear. Bluetooth has been stable. Better than with Beats by Dre Studio wireless which I also use.
    Used only when I train, wished you could turn up the volume a little more but ok pressure and quality of the sound

    Have had these powerbeats3 for 1 month now. the sound is good and they sit comfortably on, run, however, with the cord below the neck ist to the back of the neck. If I put it behind my neck stuck cord easily when turning the head. Mic will additionally too far back then, and the conversation among the other person you very badly.
    The range is good! I can put the phone away from me in the gym and walking away several meters or to another room without music hit.

    The negative is the connection. As 9/10 times works well. But sometimes it freaks out. It simply will not connect. I can turn o put on blåtanden on the iPhone / beats3 several times without anything happening. Also presto, after a few times it works again. This draws sadly down the grade and is very frustrating ....

    This is probably the best Bluetooth headphones of this type, ie in-ear as I listened to. Sitting really good, sounds good although they obviously can not compare with the real trick. Simple to use and good Battery life. The rating is supposed to be compared with the same type of headphones with in-ear.
