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.
Made to perform
Designed with your active life in mind, Powerbeats2 Wireless is lightweight and compact with a flexible ear hook to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.
- Easily pairs within 30 feet of your Bluetooth-enabled iPhone, iPad, or iPod

Audio lag appears to be resolved...good overall headphones albeit pricey
It appears that iOS 8.0.2 has resolved the video/audio lag issue. I was surprised when my test movie Cool Runnings was playing fin It appears that iOS 8.0.2 has resolved the video/audio lag issue. I was surprised when my test movie Cool Runnings was playing fine after the update on my iPhone 6 so I repaired the headphones with my old 4S which is still on 8.0.0 and the lag was present there. No firmware updates have been published for the headphones themselves so not sure if that might be required for a more permanent fix across all devices, but I think we can at least safely say that you can enjoy synched up audio for your videos if you're on iOS 8.0.2. Weird note: Suddenly, my center play button on the headphones stopped working...I tried repairing the headphones, resetting them, etc. I was so fed up between that and the lag issue that I was about to return them to the Apple store before I realized that iOS had been updated recently so I decided to try one last thing - powering off my phone and powering it back on again, then repairing the device, and voila...everything seems to be working as expected. Try this before getting too frustrated or calling customer support.
Overall, I like these headphones. I wanted something wireless that I could use both at the gym and on the train commuting (as well as match my white iPhone 6) and these fit the bill. I don't have any previous experience with Beats products so I can't compare the sound quality in that sense, but compared to Plantronics Bluetooth devices I've had in the past and corded models such as the klipsch si4, I'd say these are right around the top (especially for Bluetooth). I find them to be pretty balanced - a little bassy but I like that since I listen to a good amount of hip hop. There are some skips and speed up/slow down here and there but I don't expect perfection from a wireless device - too much interference out there. They are definitely overpriced which prevents a 5-star rating (around $150 would be more appropriate) but I'm pretty happy with these overall and think I will keep them, which I wasn't so sure about after my initial tests and reading of reviews. If you've got the cash to burn, buy with confidence. …

Only thing good about these headphones are that it does not fall off while working out. Headphones are definitely stylish but is Only thing good about these headphones are that it does not fall off while working out. Headphones are definitely stylish but is that good enough to sacrifice for sound quality. You will not be able to play these at full volume with some songs and some you will be able to get away with it. Forget about watching any type of videos you will only get frustrated as the sync is way off.
Cannot recommend this until audio sync is fixed. …

Muddled midrange and weak bass. But they do get loud.
Maybe I'm a little spoiled by the sound of a $35 pair of Sennheiser corded sport headphones, but these $200 Powerbeats 2 Wireless Maybe I'm a little spoiled by the sound of a $35 pair of Sennheiser corded sport headphones, but these $200 Powerbeats 2 Wireless headphones kick out a disappointingly low amount of bass, which I find particularly odd because the one thing people always seem to criticize Beats' products for is for being too bass heavy (this is my first, and probably last, Beats purchase). Now I'm left with a muddled midrange, very little bass, and a $200 product to return. The search goes on for a decent pair of in-ear, gym friendly bluetooth headphones ... …

Getting the fit right takes some time, but they work well. Great sound, decent battery life, very light, sweat resistant. Also the mic for phone calls works well (people have said the voice quality on my calls is fine). I've logged about 100 miles w/ them so far. They really need an auto shut-off feature, hopefully this will come w/ software upgrades, etc. …
