The IPX-4 sweat- and water-resistance rating means Powerbeats2 Wireless are tough from the ear bud to the tangle-free cable wrap around. There's also over-molding on the RemoteTalk for a no-slip grip when you’re changing volume, switching tracks, and making hands-free calls.

Wireless Bluetooth lets you connect up to 9.1 metres from your Bluetooth-enabled iPhone, iPad or iPod - so you can move freely and stay focused on your workout. A rechargeable battery with 6-hour playback gives you the power to endure to the end. If you’re on empty, a 15-minute quick charge delivers an extra hour of non-stop playback.

These earphones are great for running, they fit very well, are light and the sound is fantastic. Unfortunately they have a huge f These earphones are great for running, they fit very well, are light and the sound is fantastic. Unfortunately they have a huge flaw, whenever you watch video back, be it from an iPhone, PC, Mac, TV anything at all it has about a 2 second delay so everything is out of Sync. I have spoken to Beats support and they feel that the issue is all of the other manufactures need to issue an update to fix this. I explained that all of the other bluetooth headphones I own do not have this problem and work fine with iPhone, Mac Tv etc. Even a little £25 Sony Bluetooth dongle works better than these £170 earphones.
If you just want them for running then go for it, they sound good and fit well. Don't touch them if you want to use them for watching Video however. In my opinion and at this price they need to do both and these simply don't.
Needless to say mine are being returned to Apple tomorrow for a refund.... …

Best Fit but very occasional drop in connection
I've bought a number of earphones specifically for use when running both on road and a treadmill. For many I've generally found p I've bought a number of earphones specifically for use when running both on road and a treadmill. For many I've generally found poor fitting not only annoying but also negatively effects the quality of the sound by reducing the bass. My last wireless pair were Jaybird Bluebird X which tend to bounce out of your ear and if you wear the wire up and over your ears as it suggests, the wire keeps bouncing off the back of your neck which is more than a little annoying. I've had the latest Beats wireless earphones for 4 weeks using them pretty much every other day for running and the fit is the best I've experienced from both wired and wireless earphones. You can choose the size of bud and then just push in your ears with the fitting over the back of each ear, then a simple twist and they snugly lock into place. The sound has a great bass which now you can adjust equalisation if you are playing music using the latest Spotify app - however having tried you don't really need to adjust the sound as the fit and sound quality of these earphones are so good anyway.
The controls seem very sturdy especially compared to my wired Beats earphones that are very plastic and fragile in comparison. You can easily control volume and track play/pause/forward/back. You can also shorten the ear to ear cable that sits comfortably on the back of your neck.
The only slight downside is the occasional loss of connection. You don't need to do anything as it sorts itself out but I have experienced an occasional drop of sound or jump in the track which I've not experienced with other Bluetooth headsets. It's not really a big deal as it is more of an occasional thing rather than constant occurrence. I wear my iphone around my waist so if you have a wrist case this may not be an problem anyway, however this is why it's a 4 star rather than 5 in my book. …

Would be great wireless headphones if they worked
Since December i have had 3 pairs of these headphones. The 1st pair broke when I was plugin the charging cable into them, basical Since December i have had 3 pairs of these headphones. The 1st pair broke when I was plugin the charging cable into them, basically the case of the headphone just came apart in my hand. Took them back to my local apple store and they happily changed them. Used my replacement pair for a week at the gym, ran out of charge went to charge them up, but nothing. Lights come on to indicate charging then they go off. Couldn't get them to charge after this.
Again went back to apple store and this time changed them for another brand of headphone, I found these did not fit as good as the powerbeats so returned them for another pair of powerbeats thinking surely these cant fail a third time. But yes they did fail, again after using for a few work outs in the gym they needed charging, when i went to charge them the light came on then nothing wouldn't charge. After this i just got a full refund.
if they worked i would highly recommend them for gym use but they do not. They fit great and don't move while you work out. They take a little to get used to the way they fit in your ear but after a couple of uses its fine. Sound wise no complaints from me fine for gym use which is what they are aimed at, you can hear external noise but that's for safety reasons and they are not meant to be sound cancelling. The wire between the head phones could be made from a different material as it can pull on your neck a little at times. But all this is irrelevant if they stop working after a week.
Such a shame as i thought they were really good headphones, perfect for gym use. Would of given 5 stars if they worked. …
