Dr. Dre Powerbeats review: 'Sports' headphones that are sturdy but sometimes uncomfortable

 

Monster's Powerbeats by Dr. Dre sports earphones stick to your ears well and are sturdy enough to survive a few accidental drops - but we found them a little uncomfortable. The headphones' sound quality isn't quite worth the $229 asking price, though -...

Good design and build quality, Clear sound quality, Good on-ear clamping force

Uncomfortable and stiff earpieces, Bass is a little weak

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...

Fake Beats by Dre??

 

If the real Beats by Dre earphones sound like this, I feel sorry for those that paid more. I paid $47 for refurbished and they are not worth free. Waited about a week for headphones that are worse than cheapos.

None

Came in a bubble wrapped envelope packaged in a generic white box. Opened to see that they were used, I understand they are refurbished, there was old ear wax still in ear bud. Apparently they were never cleaned or "refurbished" prior to me buying...

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
