    Another failure

    • Written by from Wokingham

    So annoyed with myself for not reading reviews before purchasing. I was worried I was just buying and brand and marketing hype - well I was.

    I am now on my second set due to left earbud loosing sound quality. First set returned to Nordics (£9 shipping cost) and replaced after 4wks but only when I chased. Now after less than a months use the second set have developed the same fault only this time no response from Dre Beats support!

    Listen to the majority and spend your money elsewhere.

    URBEATS headphones

    • Written by from Huntington

    Bought this product because of the popularity of the brand expecting a great sound and quality. In less than 6 months I had to replaced them twice. Seems like plenty of buyers had problems with this item, the company should just recall all URBEATS headphones. Was planning to buy a set for my gf but not going to now. I can only hope that beatsbydre do the right thing.

    Don't waste your money

    I really liked these earphones at first, the sound quality is inarguably good, however it took 2 months for the right earphone wire to detach rendering them useless. 'made to take a beating', they really can't.

    Sound quality is great, break easily after 2 months

    • Written by from Frankford

    In the past 4 months i have gone through 2 pairs. Currently i am waiting for my third replacement pair to arrive.
    Each pair has the same problem, after about 2 months, one ear bud will break, leave you with half volume and no bass while the other continues to work fine. Beats however keeps sending me free replacement pairs with the exception of paying for shipping the broken pair to them.
    Sound quality is great, break easily after 2 months, not as durable as advertised.

    Does not live up to its hype

    • Written by from Beverly Hills

    Just bought my first pair of UrBeats earbuds. The product is beautifully packaged and f
    Eels sturdy but the sound is no where near as good as the sound I hear from the stock apple ear pods. I think $80 goes towards packaging &19 towards the sound quality of the earphones. I'm returning mine tomorrow. Disappointed.

    Great sound, POOR QUALITY.

    • Written by from san francisco

    I've owned two pair of these in the last 18 months, They fit great, better than the apple earbuds, The sound is good, But after 6-8 months one side goes out, NOT worth $100, Don't waste your money, I won't again.

    Don’t waste your money.

    • Written by from Overland park

    The sound quality is just OK, but the ear pieces don't stay in place and fall out of my ear. Within a month of use I could see the cables cracking next to the earbuds and jack. I have them for 2 month now and my right earphone is almost detached.

    The cords are like it would be broke easily and I think it has too much bass and it cover up all mids, high and I think urbeats are really lack in soundstage. I've tried to listen to an electro songs like Skrillex , Gym class heroes, Far east movement but it just gone worse I would recommend earpod if you want urbeats SERIOUSLY

    Left side isn't working.

    • Written by from Grande Prairie

    I bought these at Best Buy in late October and they sounded amazing that is until today when the left earbud decided to completely stop working. I tried to fiddle around with it to see if it was just the way that they were sitting in the headphone jack but nope, the left side just doesn't work any more! It's only been 8 months since I've had these. I'm going back to my Apple EarPods. "Made to take a beating" now that's a sick joke indeed.

    Do not buy

    • Written by from Calgary

    The sound is amazing...that is if the ear buds stay in your ear!
    I thought it was just my ears but after searching and reading reviews on multiple websites, it seems like its a recurring pattern.
    I find myself constantly trying to put the buds back into my ear.
    They don't even have other sizes of earbud replacements.
    You'd think that $100 would get you a smaller/larger size of earbuds replacements.

    I highly recommend NOT purchasing this product. It's an overpriced piece of garbage. Stick with other brands, or at least find something that stays in your ear.

    Good while they last

    • Written by from McMinnville

    My girlfriend purchased these headphones for me little over a year ago I loved them , beautiful sound heavy bass but about 6 months into owning these they would not produce sound unless the wire would wiggle around and now they don't work at all. They were never mistreated in any way. I DO NOT recommend these to anyone.

    Not worth $100

    • Written by from Huntsville

    On my first pair of urbeats, the left earbud quit working and the same thing happened to my 2nd pair that i pretty much just bought and i take good care of them. They only last about 4 months and it isn't worth 100 bucks. Honestly I would just buy headphones.

    DO NOT BUY! Not worth the money!

    • Written by from Dublin

    Had them for just under 4 months. I take extra care with them because they were so expensive but they have started just fading in and out. The in control works occassionally. Went back to beats and they only have a "1 Year" warranty if they are purchased at a "beats approved vendor" and you have to have a receipt! So guess what! I am screwed! No receipt!

    The sound quality is sub-par, my default HTC one headphones sounded better, and they don't stay in your ear at all. Every one of the plastic heads would fall out, even if I was standing still they would fall out. They also broke within 3 weeks, the left earbud is now completely muted. Don't waste your money, buy from someone who knows how to make headphones.

    I have had Beats in the past and they have been great for bass, I picked these up and they sounded worse the a 20 dollar cheep set,not sure if I got a bad set, but I returned them and exchanged for another brand, as for build quality they seem fine,but I only had them for a day so I do not know there longevity.

    Same problem every time

    • Written by from hamilton

    So my third pair of urbeats just broke. I got these for my birthday 11 months ago and have gone through three pairs. Don't get me wrong they provide great sound for the rap music I listen to but don't last long at all. The average life for these is 3 and half months, which is insane. Not to mention the same problem happens every single time. The left ear bud just stops working after a couple of months, for no reason. I take great care of these $100 headphones so they don't break and they still do.

    I have had 2 pairs of these head phones, as they were replaced. Now, These things broke both times in the matter of 2 weeks. Never buy these, especially with apples terrible customer service. If you buy these apple will keep putting you on hold, and you will never get your money back... Also the Beats by Dre website has awful support as well, but at least there they will send you a replacement. Do not buy these apple will steal your money for a piece of junk that lasts at most 3 weeks with minor use. Sincerely, some one that went to radio shack and bought a pair of skull candy headphones that have lasted longer than both pairs so far.

    With much less money you can buy way better. Cord is too weak I could use only for 2months.

    Terrible product, decent sound, horrible craftsmanship

    • Written by from Toronto

    So I was given a pair of these for my birthday six months ago and I LOVED them. They had good sound, were relatively comfortable, and worked great with my iPhone. Until today.

    Six months into my ownership the right speaker has lost sound, and it's not covered by warranty because it's "normal wear and tear".

    I'll be setting these on fire this weekend at a barbecue and buying a different company that isn't marketed based on the owners reputation.

    Two pairs broke within 7 months

    • Written by from Fort lauderdale

    The first one broke after two months, remote controll stopped working and then the left earbud. After a replacement I got from Beats the lasted about 5 months. Remote controll stopped working and then both earbuds. I wish I had readed the reviews here earlier so I would never spending my money on this cheap-quality product. Sound is pretty good tho, but the earbuds does not worth a penny!!! I highly recommend to stay away from any Beats product!!!
