Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Amazon

Amazon:
"These were fake beats, but Amazon was great about it and fixed the problem right away"
_
"Most disappointing Amazon purchase in years."
_
"For instant i purchased a juicer through Amazon saw complaints that the motor runs hot, but if the instructions are read you'll see they say dont frun it for more than 5 mins."
_
"I purchase them here in Amazon and I am left with a pair of broken headphones that cost me almost $300.00 dollars."
_
"My fault--I did not read the reviews on Amazon before deciding to buy these, as I fell victim to all the advertising hype and so did my spouse who wanted these for Christmas."
_
"After buying the product through J&R; Music - who also didn't offer any alternative solution, only the formal communication that their warranty is just for 30 days (beware from whom you buy them in the future if not fulfilled by Amazon)- I had the same problem that many other customers had described in their review: you put the Beats on and the top portion of the headband snaps at a point where screws are placed on the unit (located on the underside of the unit's plastic headband)."
_
"These were fake beats, but Amazon was great about it and fixed the problem right away"
_
"I was able to find a better pair on Amazon for a fraction of the price that sounds just as good."
_
"Well, I am past my Amazon return period so I am hoping I can get refund from the manufacturer or at least a working replacement."
_
"Again Amazon was wonderful and have taken them back and refunded my money."
_
"What can I say - I bought these headphones first in April 2014 for my 12 year old daughter - got them out of the box in May on her birthday, charged them up, would not work :( Amazon were great and took them back bought another pair, in May 2014, charged them up and yes these ones work."

Battery

Battery:

"Constructions seems flimsy and fragile, but sound is great, and battery life is excellent."
_
"My only issue is that battery life is HORRIBLE."
_
"Fine for walking and light jogging but not the best for other more intense exercises- Battery life is good on the headphones although the Bluetooth drastically drains the battery in my IPhone (many don't realize this before buying)-$250+ (worth the cost if wireless is important to you)Overall great headphones but experience will vary on your use of them."
_
"Good pair of head phones the only cons are they get dirty and you can't clean them and some times the music just stops for no reason but out her than that GREAT battery life very good sound I would buy the black one tho but that's just me"
_
"If your battery does fail, you can still use the provided chord and use them like any other headphone."
_
"- The battery life was good, about 8 hours average- The earpads were comfortable, and these headphones did survive a lot of sweat, as I am a relatively sweaty person."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"I like that these were bluetooth, which is a very nice feature, but parts on them have broken twice, and I have had to superglue them a lot."
_
"I went to put them on my head like everyday before and the main strip connecting bothsides together snapped... can't use them anymore, well I could tape them back together I suppose but who pays for 300$ headphones just to have them break...Second part I dislike is when they are on the cord, they are jamming loud, but on bluetooth they loose pitch and are not as loud, I get that its probably battery life saver but still a big deal for me, maybe next time put a booster switch on them or something to give the option."
_
"These won't work with my iPhone 6 and I paid 135$ for blue tooth headphones and they DONT WORK like why I have mixers and I bought these so I could have no cords but what's the point if they don't work and the quality isn't as good as my mixers like WHY if they aren't Bluetooth why get them"

Headset

Headset:
"Beats, please listen to the voice of your customers and see all the broken beats headset photos and videos on youtube and other forums."
_
"How could so many customers have their headsets broken at the same place?"
_
"Only later, after reading other customer reviews, I realized that their headsets also broke at the same location as mine."
_
"Frequent unexplained disconnects remedied only by a power cycle, beginnings of each song slightly cut off, no battery remaining power indicator on my iPhone for my headphone unit, incredibly compressive headset making for a fairly uncomfortable wearing experience."

"I always wanted wireless headphone and it works great especially when the cord is not in the way any more I love moving to the music and love listening to the sound privately."
_
"My Bose headphones were quite expensive, but their noise cancelling is great(especially at the time I got them), the audio sounds great for listening to music(not necessarily for editing fidelity because they alter the sound with an equalizer), and they've lasted years."

Warranty

Warranty:
"Conclusion: My opinion is colored by a previous bad experience of failure right after warranty expiration, but these also broke with no real reason."
_
"The headband broke after 4 months from the time I purchased them and when I contact them for warranty issue, they practically told me that I was on my own and the warranty did not cover my purchase."

_
"Sure thing mine broke after 4 months of use Beats warranty services are horrible, they will not guaranty a replacement, even after I send the pictures of the receipt and broken headphone."
_
"The buddy that broke his was just out of warranty."
_
"The cashier strongly suggested that I buy the store warranty because the left earphones were having problems."
_
"In a two month time period they had snapped on the top headband portion (no problem, we though, we purchased a warranty and they should be covered under the manufacturer as well)."
_
"He even warned me to buy the extended warranty because he see's about 3 people a day come to Best Buy with snapped Beats asking for a refund."
_
"They are 280$ and there was no way I was getting such an expensive pair of headphones with out warranty support (Best Buy 40$ for 2 years)."
