    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I dont recomend

    • Written by from utrecht

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

    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

    Beets are only for looks. Most people buying beets don't look at sound quality they look for the tacky design that are beets. These sound TERRIABLE I am not an audiophile but listing to them for 5 minutes I took them back to the store, got some Klipsch ones (AWESOME). Bottom line if you are buying for looks don't buy they are tacky if you are buying for sound quality don't come close because the inner audiophile will die and you will never listen to music with passion again.
