Perfect combo for Apple Watch, Series 2
By Curtis S
I spent a lot of time researching bluetooth headsets specifically for running and working out and even more specifically for use with the apple watch, series 2.
If you're like me and you've spent any amount of time researching bluetooth earbuds, you know that it seems impossible to find the perfect pair. The feedback from end users is so varied for each model that it seems like they all are terrible. With these in particular, I was worried based on the few reviews that I had read. Some complained that they were too bassy. Others complained that they weren't comfortable. Yet others said that they weren't worth the $200 price tag. I was also worried that the BT connection my drop sporadically based on reviews of other products in this category.
After owning these for a week, I am happy to say that I made the right purchase. I've been pleasantly pleased with the performance of these.
Pairing is easy. I have an iphone 7 plus, an iPad pro 9.7, and and apple watch, series 2. I paired this with my phone, and much to my surprise, the watch and iPad worked with the iPad and watch without having to do any extra steps.
The audio does not skip. This was a concern, but after a couple of workouts listening to music from my apple watch, these haven't skipped or lost connection once.
They are comfortable. They come with several sizes of plugs for your ears so I would think that most would find a size that works. They may not be great for wearing for long durations, but for a half hour workout they've been great.
They do have a lot of bass. But I didn't find it over powering. I am not an audiophile, but the added bass certainly makes the music sound more full than the headphones that came with my phone.
Long battery life. At 12 hours, these will easily outlast any device they are paired to.
They are a little pricey. However, I'm willing to spend a little more on something that works well and doesn't give me issues.

Have had 7 pairs and all stopped working within 6 months. STAY AWAY!
Well, as you will see from the other reviews, there are two types of Beats in ear owners...Those who's units stopped working and those who just haven't had them long enough to stop working. I'm probably a rare case as I have had every single version dating back to 2013 even before they had their wireless versions and each and every pair I had failed and stopped working at some point. Photo attached of my purchase history so you can see I have owned 6 pair over the years and all ended up being worthless after a short amount of time. With the older wired units, I owned 4 pairs, they would work great for anywhere from 4-6 months and then one side would go out or the controls would just stop working followed by the ear pieces. With the wireless units they would just stop charging after the same time. I was actually thrilled when Apple bought beats and released their new "Beats 3" version that claimed extra battery life and a remodel. I thought for sure now with Apple in the game they would finally fix these issues. Well, exactly 6 months after owning the new Beats 3 pair they just died as the others did. No charging and just worthless. You were probably asking "why do you keep getting them if they don't work". Only because of my extended warranty plan am I able to keep returning them and getting new pairs as they fail. So now I am on my 7th pair and will just keep this going. It's truly amazing this company can't get this right, not to mention they are robbing thousands of people of their hard earned money as I would assume most of them don't have the extended warranty. Hopefully this gets fixed but if they haven't done it at this point I wouldn't count on it. STAY AWAY!

Packaging was beautiful, product is a definite upgrade from previous versions. The charging port is accessible without having to move a flimsy rubber piece out of the way, and the materials look and feel great.
The best part though is not having to connect your phone with these head phones. Bluetooth connection was easy to use, they connect quickly and sound awesome. When jogging or running they don't tug nor fall out. Sweating doesn't seem to phase them, and they seem to be lightly water resistant, based on a quick jog through a light rain.
The worst part are the accessories, or lack of, that come with the powerbeats 3. The case was a terrible feeling rubber material that looks like a Pacman. No zipper making it surprisingly stressful to place the head phones inside, will they fall out, will they stay in, nobody knows. Additionally there was a distinct lack of charger, thanks for the cable, but I'd really like to be able to plug them in from the get go.
Overall these are a fantastic buy. The Apple store was selling them for 199.95 and when I looked on Amazon for next day free shipping it was 129. The Apple store associate told me they could price match up to 10 percent, quick math led to not purchase then through the Apple store. Though I did technically purchase then in store with the Amazon app.
I doubt I'll ever purchase wired head phones again, though I hope they'll up their accessory game in future iterations.
