Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats


Beats by Dr. Dre makes so many different headphone, earphone, and speaker options at this point, it's taking some time to test them all—hence, here's a semi-belated look at the Powerbeats ($149.95 direct). This exercise earphone pair has all the...

Deep bass response, powerful audio output. Secure-fitting, flexible, sweat-resistant design. Inline microphone and remote for Apple iOS devices

Overpriced. Ear-to-ear fit can be inconsistent

The Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats earphones offer booming bass in an exercise-friendly design, but are more expensive than some comparable competition.

Powerbeats by Dr. Dre Review


The fitness-friendly earphones.

Sporty design, great fit on the ears

Bass isn’t as good as the rest of the Dre lineup, Pricey for earphones you'll probably only use while excercising

Overall, Powerbeats by Dr. Dre are a great set of earphones that provide above average sound quality. However, they’re the kind of earphones that you’ll probably only want to wear for outdoor activities and for just that purpose, it comes for a rather...

Not Bad


I love the look and fit of them. They're way better than headphones my phone came with but I still can't say they were worth spending $150 on.

Looks great ; Good cord & length ; Great fit

Not worth the $150 price tag, while they do sound good, they're not great by any means

I bought these earphones for a gift for my son and he loves them. The sound quality is comparable to my Bose ear buds so they sounded great.

Disappointed in the quality!...


The headphones come in such a beautiful presentation. They can only be use with an apple,android and blackberry! The material is a little disappointing. Have not had a chance to get a product that works with them. I will write later about sound.

Amazing, just amazing!...


These headphones are great to say the least. Living in a rainy climate water was always damaging my previous headphones but not my Beats! They take all the abuse and the sound is out of this world. Worth every penny plus more.
