    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.

    Urbeats- any good

    • Written by from Bingley

    So the urbeats have a fantastic design that consist if metal specifically iron, the look Is great and the cable is tangle free, the redness of the cable is vibrant and the remote is great for the control of volume, tracks ,taking calls and Siri. However the remote feels cheap and loose also the cable feels delicate it isn't but it feels that way, for £80 you can't go wrong so far, beats include alot of ear buds for the perfect fit which is vital for a good listening experience, also great packaging and they include a 1 year warranty , those are all great things but now its time to discuss the sound. No lie I love these I found the perfect fit I used all the ear buds and all combinations I also found a great equaliser so the highs are great yet in fatiguing, the bass is on point and thumpy slightly exaggerated but not muddy. Vocals sound great very clear but sometimes they sound hollow which for country listeners may be a problem, the mids are ok they're defined and noticeable but not enough. For me and my genre (hip hop, rap) beats are perfect these urbeats are portable and sound great they have a big sound unlike most earbuds for such a small size. Even the case is awesome, taking calls is an easy experience and clear not amazing but clear , I'm 17 and I recommend these thank you

    great pair of headphones

    • Written by from El Monte

    I live these earphones these sound fantastic I think I will be using these instead of my earpods a lot of reviews I've seen claim they break quickly
    And they probably never even bought the earphones if I take care of these earphones they would probably last me at least 2 years!!!

    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.

    Please listen!!!!

    • Written by from Newmarket

    I bought these earphones thinking they'd give great sound for the price. I was so wrong, the sound quality is mediocre. After about 3 months the in line controls stopped working completely. I also found the earphones would glitch out at times. So please, don't make the same mistake a lot of us have, do not buy. You will be disappointed.

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from Fordingbridge

    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.

    Every pair of ear buds I've owned have only lasted for about 6 months and then one bud would just stop working. I got my beats earbuds for Christmas and I loved the sound and everything but a few days ago I noticed the left earbud was lower than the right and now the sound just completely stopped. Since Dr. Dre makes more money making these stupid headphones than he does making music he should do a better job. Definitely not worth $100.

    Had them for less than 2 months and the cord disconnected from the inline mic... Before they broke i loved them. if you're wearing like sweat pants that generate static, the static will shoot up the cord and shock your ear (it hurts, and it will probably scare you).

    Great Sound, poor integrity

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    So, I bought them thinking that it would be the best sound for the cheapest amount of money (beats wise). I was not wrong. I LOVE the sound, and it was $100. My first pair worked great for the first two months or so, when the left ear inexplicably lost it's volume intensity! The right ear overpowered the left by a long shot! So luckily my plan with the company I bought them from allowed me to get a new free pair in exchange. Now, 4 months later, I sit typing this warning you that the left ear will cut out again! It lost it's sound in one day, when literally all I was doing was listening to music and doing homework! DO NOT BUY unless beats says that they fixed the problem. I think that these reflect very poorly on the beats company, and I am disappointed in them.

    break quickly

    • Written by from Centennial

    When the head phones are working they are quite magnificent, but they have a very short working time. I have owned two pairs of these headphones and both have only lasted at the most 5-8 months. Hopefully ill find headphones with the same music quality but actually last a reasonable amount of time.

    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.

    8 months after.. Right phone isn't working

    • Written by from 岡崎市

    The cord which connects to the jack has some problems. I tried pushing them a bit and there was sound coming out of the right phone. If I let go the sound goes off.

    I guess the cord isn't sturdy enough and I want it replaced. Last Saturday I went to Apple store where I bought the product and the staff told me to contact Beats by Dre's support because I cannot return the product to Apple Store in Nagoya city. Why is that so? In my experience at electronic shops they can replace broken products easily.

    I'm gonna try to call the support and will post their reply to my concern. I hope it gets replaced soon. I was liking Beats the first time I heard it but now I need to be more careful when buying headphones that doesn't have strong cords.

    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.

    Good product

    • Written by from Kenosha

    These really are good headphones. Enough bass and noise isolation. I've seen a lot of reviews saying they don't last, but I've had these since Christmas and they still work perfect. Trust me, I listen to my music loud. They're worth the price.

    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.
