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.

Don't use for Video playback
The audio on these powerbeats is great. They are comfortable to wear as well.
Where the powerbeats2 fail is in audio playback w The audio on these powerbeats is great. They are comfortable to wear as well.
Where the powerbeats2 fail is in audio playback when watching video. I've experienced this on my iPhone 5s, iPad 4 and Mac. One solution provided was to reset the headphones - that doesn't address the problem.
The firmware is supposedly upgradeable. Its been months since released and the version remains at 1.0.
I would not recommend these headphone is your primary use is for watching Videos, the audio lag will drive you nuts. Now that Beats is owned by Apple, I am hoping that this gets resolved. Its surprising that they haven't dealt with this as of yet.
Check other references to this problem on the web. It seems uniformly held as an issue. …

Good sound but poor design
I can't deny these tiny earbuds produce good decent sound and they are labeled to be for gym use. However the rubber material ban I can't deny these tiny earbuds produce good decent sound and they are labeled to be for gym use. However the rubber material band running from the front the the ears to the neck gives me a constant reminder with a pull kind of feel to my neck. And also the cable keeps rubbing on the earlobes. The cable would have been better off going from behind the ears to connect the two earbuds. …

Great Earbuds, previous issues have been FIXED!
Just to set the scenario straight, I bought these headphones on 10/21/14. I have an iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 8.1 and i also have Just to set the scenario straight, I bought these headphones on 10/21/14. I have an iPhone 6 Plus running iOS 8.1 and i also have a 15" Retina Macbook Pro (Late 2013).
Took these out of the box, swapped out the ear tips for the largest ones, charged it for 15 minutes, connected to my phone. After listening to a straight continuous electronic mix on soundcloud i was very pleased with these headphones. They are very secure in my ears and the cord around the back of my neck stayed in place as I walked home from the apple store. The sound is definitely bass heavy which is to be expected in a pair of exercise headphones. However, they are definitely not limited to exercising only. When I returned home, I connected to my laptop to check out the delay complaint other reviewers were commenting on in their reviews. I was pleasantly surprised that there was NO DELAY or STUTTER when connected to my laptop. Mind you I was streaming youtube videos and netflix, along with spotify and even media files for some of my classes. Overall, Im extremely happy with these headphones and their versatility, comfort, and security. …

Best wireless headphones by far especially for training
I bought these headphones despite mixed reviews given Apple two week return policy. I have tried most leading Bluetooth headphones I bought these headphones despite mixed reviews given Apple two week return policy. I have tried most leading Bluetooth headphones and are finding these ones to be the best by far. The sound is excellent given I prefer music that requires a good bass response. The best thing about them is the design where they fit snugly around the ears even during intense training at the gym.Love them and best $250 I have spent. …
