Even tho i always by beats, these were discribed as new ! But they were defenantly used and the puse/play button dosnt work or the skip track possition. Even tho the actual sound quality and they are perfect for what i want the un usful pause is very frustrating!
These were purchased as a christmas present and almost immediately the sound quality became intermittent and has gradually gotten worse. Now 1 of the ear pieces only works intermittently and even when working the interference makes them unusable. I have purchased several pairs of Beats headphones in the past and these are nowhere near the quality of previous purchases which causes me to question their origin.
Prompt delivery even though it was so close to Christmas. Was sightly disappointed that they were not wireless as that is what I thought I had ordered but that may have been my mistake. Overall I was happy with the purchase.
As a runner, I was looking for something that would stay on while I was out - these were a very expensive mistake. I normally use skullcandy in ear buds and I am now going back to them.
They may have buds but do not fit inside your ear fully due to the shape of the ear piece. In turn, this means your sound quality is worse as the buds cannot seal out external noise. The hard plastic of the earpiece is hugely uncomfortable on your ear and even with the soft over ear mounting, they fall out more than a normal pair of buds. But it doesn't stop there. The chord for me is just not quite long enough so I have to use my running bag in a different position to allow for the chord. If I use the extension, then it all becomes massively too long and I have a coil of wire to contend with.
Then, there is the clip used to secure the cable to your clothing - for all the good it does, it should have been left out of the packet. For me, a very poor product, you are paying for the name and some very glamorous packaging - beyond that, the actual product is poor. I have got so mad trying to run with these that I simply now run without music/pace notes until my new ones arrive.
At every opportunity to be better than my existing buds, Dre fails miserably - spend your money on something else

Great sound and great fit but very poor quality. These earphones lasted just under 5months, it's my 3rd pair, they all seem to have the same problem, one side goes dead, but it seems to be the wires that gets worn out... Bought them direct from Amazon, but Amazon have one month warranty, which is very shocking!

These may have been designed for athletes, but they're not quite there. I run, and use the gym occasionally. The adjustable ear hooks keep things nicely in place, and the sound is good compared to other sports headphones. But, get a little sweaty and the in line control will stop working, or even worse, it will work when you don't want it!
I used them for a couple of weeks (about 10 runs) and found I couldn't change volume, or change track, and even found my iPod switching into voice over mode quite often.
Amazon were good enough to replace them, but same problem with the second set, and then gave me a refund.
