Performance and power
Inspired by LeBron James, the Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats2 Wireless headphones are exceptionally light and deliver the power of dual-driver acoustics to propel you through rigorous workouts.
Designed to endure
The IPX-4 sweat- and water-resistance rating means Powerbeats2 Wireless are tough from 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.
From the street to the court, Powerbeats2 Wireless gives you the freedom to take your workout anywhere. Wireless Bluetooth lets you connect up to 30 feet 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.

Don't use for Video playback
The audio on these powerbeats is great. They are comfortable to wear as well.
Where the powerbeats2 fail is in audio playback w The audio on these powerbeats is great. They are comfortable to wear as well.
Where the powerbeats2 fail is in audio playback when watching video. I've experienced this on my iPhone 5s, iPad 4 and Mac. One solution provided was to reset the headphones - that doesn't address the problem.
The firmware is supposedly upgradeable. Its been months since released and the version remains at 1.0.
I would not recommend these headphone is your primary use is for watching Videos, the audio lag will drive you nuts. Now that Beats is owned by Apple, I am hoping that this gets resolved. Its surprising that they haven't dealt with this as of yet.
Check other references to this problem on the web. It seems uniformly held as an issue. …

Good sound but poor design
I can't deny these tiny earbuds produce good decent sound and they are labeled to be for gym use. However the rubber material ban I can't deny these tiny earbuds produce good decent sound and they are labeled to be for gym use. However the rubber material band running from the front the the ears to the neck gives me a constant reminder with a pull kind of feel to my neck. And also the cable keeps rubbing on the earlobes. The cable would have been better off going from behind the ears to connect the two earbuds. …

Don't buy if you watch video's! C'mon man
I bought these a couple of days ago having read all the reviews about audio lag over video thinking it can't be true. Let me tell I bought these a couple of days ago having read all the reviews about audio lag over video thinking it can't be true. Let me tell you that it is true and I've never seen anything like it. I can't believe they would bring out a $200 product and have it be this bad although the sound for music is good and the fit is comfortable. I spoke with apple support for beats and they said that this is the first time they have heard anything and don't expect a fix anytime soon. I will be returning these to my nearest Apple store which is 30 miles away. …

Perfect for listening to music while working out at the gym. Very lightweight and snug fit over the ear.

I wanted to pick them up for a while but was apprehensive because of the price and some of the negative reviews about video playback and battery life. I am happy to report that the video playback issue has apparently been solved, and I could not be happier with the battery life. I have only had these headphones for a few days, but I have used them in the gym in the morning and then intermittently throughout the day without needing recharge until night time. The sound quality is very good. I am no expert on the subtleties of sound quality, but as an avid listener, they are very good. While a bit pricey, these headphones are well worth the price of admission. …
