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.

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. …

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. …

Don't fall out
They don't fall out while running and even worked in the rain. Bass is terrible. It need up a serious bass upgrade

Great apple watch companion!
So, I got these for the same reason a lot of you are probably reading this--I wanted some wireless headphones to pair with my appl So, I got these for the same reason a lot of you are probably reading this--I wanted some wireless headphones to pair with my apple watch sport. My former running setup was an iPod nano, a chest strap heart rate monitor, a set of beats tours and some nike sensor in my shoes. Seemed a bit cumbersome so I fantasized about going for runs with nothing but the watch and some wireless headphones.
What can I say--it works. They paired (and stayed paired) with the watch no problem. The sound quality was pretty good. I didn't experience any lag between controlling songs and the audio. I have a simpler run setup and I'm very happy about it! I spent more time on support forums trying to figure out how to get my music copied to the watch than I did setting up the headphones that's for sure.
I see that a lot of the lower rated reviews are complaining about lag between video/audio playback--and I don't care about that. I'm never going to use these to watch videos.
These are my first over the ear earphones ever and I was worried I might hate the feel, but they're fine. They're light and the material is squishy and not very noticeable. I still like the fit of the tours better and think they're more secure--that's the only reason I'm giving 4 instead of 5 stars. …

IT is not but just a little pricy. Worth it afterall!
I like to try any product for a good amount of time and then write review.
I got this earphone about one month and half. and I I like to try any product for a good amount of time and then write review.
I got this earphone about one month and half. and I can give this 9.5/10 for sure! First off, this headphone is very stylish :P A lot people at gym asking me what is it haha. Overall battery life for this is pretty good, like it last me for one week and half with going gym one hour for 5 days a week. The bluetooth connection working pretty well with my iPhone and it might lag for only once or twice. I am not sure about other device at this point but I am sure it will works well too.
Of course no product is perfect, and the only bad part about this one is the wire in the back, it is sorta short or i can’t turn my head very well when i wear it. Like it feels wired to turn to the left or right if you don’t tie it properly. But this is not the big deal. And people always think battery life was bad, i think they might forgot to turn it off after they use, which it happened to me once. and always make sure to turn it off before put into the pocket! …
