Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • The hooks may feel a little uncomfortable during long listening sessions as they put some pressure on the ears 
  • The power button can be hard to find with your finger and turn it on/off with gloves is a nightmare 
  • The Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless sound great, as long as you get a good fit, otherwise they sound thinner than they should 
  • The sound is the same as of Powerbeats2 Wireless, Apple improved the fit but not sound 
  • Many cheaper options available for $100 that pump better sound to your ears 
  • Overblown bass is ideal for training, but not good if you want a more laid-back, relaxed listening 
  • Powerbeats 3 can be played very loud, but at maximum volume there is a lot of distortion and it can be painful to listen 
  • The micro-USB charger is useless for apple users, which means an extra cord needs to carry during travel 
  • There are some complaints from users about the damage of the earbuds by sweat, as they have no official IPX rating
