    Sick, and not in the good way.

    • Written by from New York

    I treated myself to a blue pair for Christmas and they sounded awesome. But by January they just weren't as loud anymore. I had them turned up to 11 one day on the subway and I could still hear the sounds coming from the guys headphones next to me! I'm serious. And then by February the right earbud stopped working entirely. So I exchanged them no worries and the new pair sounded awesome. Then by March the volume was bad again. And then just today, St. Paddy's Day, my birthday, the left earbud stopped working! Yeah, happy birthday. I’m hoping when I go back to exchange them I can get my money back instead. Thanks for nothing Dr Dre. You're needed in the emergency room immediately. And bring your wallet.

    These things are awesome! I can hear parts of songs I never heard before. Like the talking at the beginning of ACDC's Mistress for Christmas! Can't wait to listen to all my gazillion songs. A must try! Love them!

    Yes and No

    The buds have above average sound and nice styling but first pair broke after a month. The left ear started getting quiet and just quit working while I was at the gym. I didn't abuse the earphones I used them like a normal person would, I did not keep them in the case when I wasn't using them. I tried to return them with a receipt but they would not accept because the paint on the metal was not in perfect condition. It wasn't terrible, it was a 7.5/10 condition.

    So I bit the bullet and bought a new pair hoping that if I took better care of them they would last longer. They did last twice as long as the first pair with the same left ear cutting out after 2 1/2 months. I did wear them to the gym almost everyday, I was lifting not running so they weren't bouncing around. Regardless I don't think I should have to "baby" a product that obviously people on the move are going to use.

    I like the the flat no-tangle cords but if you do run or jog they are so heavy that when you come down it can start loosening the metal buds from your ears due to the slack of the heavy cord bouncing.

    The sound is good, has lots of base but in my opinion the overall quality has gone down since Monster Audio is no longer in the picture

    Not worth the money!!!!!

    • Written by from Hope mills

    They cost more than four times the price the ear phones cost that come with the iPhone. The sound is great but not $90 great. I use them 8 hours a day everyday at work and if they last 5 years I still won't feel like I got my money's worth. I wish I would have taken them back before I got them dirty at work

    Received these URbeats SpaceGrey Editions as a gift. They match the 5S perfectly. Love the sound on these, they are bass heavy and crystal clear vocals. They block everything out, while listening to your tunes. If someone is talking right in front of you, you can't hear anything but the music. Standard ear piece that comes attached to the buds are a great fit out of the box. They have multiple sets to try , and see if one is uniquely for your ears. Great sound at a low volume, you can hear every detail. I'm listening to throw back songs, and I'm hearing them as if they were for the first time. So many things I've missed while listening to them without the beats. Price is justified, I have Bose in ears, and these are just better. And they are about 1/2 the cost. Try them for your self, you will not be disappointed.

    AWESOME headphones

    • Written by from Geogria

    The upbeats are the best headphones I had out of beats by Dre. They are light and it's sound is really amazing, specially on the airplane, it will not hurt my ears and my other beats does hurt after awhile. The best the about these is that they are small, unlike other headphones hard to put it in the bag or whatever, these you can just put them in your pocket like a cellphone. I took 1 star off because is made out of the same material as iPhone 5 or 5s so is really easy to get scratch and the paint will come off so take good care of them or if you really worry about it, you can get the white upbeats they don't have paint and is just white so it will never get scratch.

    Great looking and sounding headphones at a solid price

    • Written by from ALBANY

    These headphones not only sound great, but look great as well. As expected with any Beats brand headphones, the bass is heavy but not overpowering making it perfect for all types of music (I mostly listen to rock and country). All levels come through clear. As with all in-ear headphones, comfort isn't perfect, but after you find the right fit you’ll barely notice them. They are built solid, but remain lightweight. The flat cord doesn't tangle from my experience so far. I can’t recommend these enough, especially at the reasonable price.

    Great but there is a flaw!

    • Written by from thousand oaks

    I have three pairs of urbeats, my first pair (red/black) worked great for a while, I only used them from time to time and they ALWAYS stayed in the case that they came with unless being used. After having them for about 8 months, they started to have static and after a day or so, the left ear completely stopped working. (Keep in mind, they were very well taken care of, never dropped, swung, and the wires were in mint condition) The earbuds look to be brand new, but they aren't even usable. I then purchased the space gray urbeats to match my new iPhone 5S, and I've only used them twice. They still work great, and I hope they stay that way. I received the blue urbeats as a gift and have not used them yet, and I also hope they work and never fail! I have a pair of beats tour earbuds, which stopped working and they had the same treatment as my original urbeats, I had them replaced and the replacement pair stopped working after a week! And the replacement pair was used ONCE! They just started to get static and then they died. I love beats, but I have had many issues, they are amazing while they last. Be sure to take pictures of your beats every now and then to be able to prove that you treated that well, just in case that you have to have them replaced. Keep your receipt!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's the major thing, or your return or exchange will be a nightmare and nearly impossible!!!!
