Summary: These power beats worked great at first, the sound quality is the max for a pair of ear buds in my opinion. But only a month after i bought these, the volume button on the cord started to bug out. The volume will constantly change on me which really makes you mad when your training for a sport and constantly having to fix the volume. Then i started to notice that the right ear was more quite then the left. This needs to be fixed!
Excellent sound, great fit comfortable, durability not good

Summary: My experience.....started very good love the fit and sound then started to fast forward the music, turn it off and garble it. Replacement after two month usage, took two months to receive, in the process of returning my second pair, with the same complaint. For the price just expected more durability.. Hopefully I won't have to wait another two months, my original purchased color was the green, loved the color, replacement color was black......
Summary: I've had my power beats for about a year and a half. No receipt of course and the sheathing is breaking exposing bare wire at the left headset and at the jack into the phone. I've always kept them wrapped and in the case and used them much less than most in that time. Now the sound cuts out and the controls don't work at all. Very sad that wrapping them up and putting them in the case has ruined them.
Summary: I bought these and kept them in my pocket in the included case. After about three months the sound stopped working in the right earbud. I am rough on earbuds but i still think that it was not worth the price. It is a great sound quality but the durability is horrible overall.
Summary: As Beats advertise their products, they put a lot of emphasis on "sound quality" and how the sound makes you feel like you're in the same room as your favorite singers. These Powerbeats I just received in the mail do not exceed my expectations when it comes to sound quality. The iPhone headphones that originally came with my phone sound better in my opinion. The higher i turn up the volume, the more static I hear in the music.
Design Change? Manufacturing Change? Where'd the bass go?

Summary: II don't know what happened. I've heard people say there was too much bass and that's what I loved about them. I recently had to exchange the original black ones for another pair (the new line) and the bass went to sounding like my roommate's $50 earbuds. I'm just wondering if there was a change.
Not made to last. Sound quality is top notch though

Summary: I owned these for one year, and a little over that year the wire showed ware, and I could see wires showing. After noticing that, one side would go in and out of the music. Basically I paid $150 for these puppies for one year. Not worth the money they cost. Not enough time was spent on design, so they will not last long.
Summary: Amazing sound with deep deep bass. However, the most annoying feature is the silicone ear pieces constantly fall off and Monster doesn't sell replacements. You have to go to third party suppliers to get them and they fall off too. The part that the ear pieces fit to needs to have a barbed end so they hold instead of parallel sides.
Summary: when swinging a golf club many golfers put both ear buds in however since these earphones have a pause button in the way you have to keep the left earbud out and hook it on to your shirt. I got these Powerbeats for my birthday in October and they lasted me until March or April because the earbuds were coming off so easily....i would recommend these to a friend however these need more bass and better earbuds.
Pros: Lightweight, Ok pricing, Good Bass, Easy To Use, Compact, Comfortable, Stylish
