    Beats by Dr. Dre MHBE2AM/A Reviews

    Powerbeats2 Wireless Earbuds (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 151.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of my best purchases I use this product daily for working out and its been amazing! The head phones are super comfortable and I can wear them for hours with no irritations, among this they have multiple tips so you can get the fit just right. I use the biggest mushroom caps to seal in the sound. The sound is amazing, and delivers good quality, it basically blocks out all the noise around me and I can rock out in my own little world. Sweat resistent and durable, these are a definite must for any person who works out a lot. I Hate cords and this perfectly sovled my problem; love the bluetooth. The only con is that sometimes the bluetooth dips out for like a second and then reconnects.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good 4-star Give it a 4-star but would have given a 5-star if werent for these design drawbacks -The cord has a tendency to shift to the left while running due to the sound button dangling on the left. Future design should consider something smaller or put the volume control on the right earbud. -The cover for the micro-USB port could be better; looks cheap, doesnt fit that well, might break-off soon (hope not). But its the best I got so far +Good sound, +Good style, +Good comfort and wont come off easily, +Works w/ Android LG G2 (double-clicks to FF song ok, no BW), Able to hear min. outside noise which is good for safety.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for spoken word, OK for music Four stars for being the first bluetooth headset that I regularly use with my phone. This stays on the ears well through running and bike riding. Isolating earbuds can sound much better, but can also create a hazard for biking (can't hear verbal warnings, etc.). These inhibit outside noise a bit but are non-isolating. This is great for midrange, which is where the human voice operates, but music especially bass response suffers. To the extent these have bass, if find the lows a bit tubby and soft. But these are great for the spoken word, which includes phone conversations. Through hours of phone conversations, nobody has had trouble understanding me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product. The Powerbeats2 wireless earbuds sound great and fit well. I specifically purchased the Powerbeats2 version, rather than the new Powerbeats3. This, because the 3 version appears to suffer numerous issues that the 2 version does not. The installed ear pieces provide a good seal (there are 3 other-sized pairs included). The over-ear pieces hold the buds in place well, and this is one of the primary reasons that I purchased this type of earbud. The sound is excellent, but I wish that it did not suffer from the Bluetooth related hiss. At least the noise is not audible when music is playing. The hiss is why 4 starts & not 5.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fine...for a few weeks I wish I had read review from other sources before buying these things. The sound isn't as great as noise cancelling headphones, but for the gym and walking around, they'll do. They worked great for 2 weeks and now they're dead. Kaput. Nada. They won't turn on, won't charge, nothing. I followed the directions for the forced restart, but still nothing. I've purchased other items from B&H and returned a few, no problem, so wish me luck with these.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just ok These headphones are uncomfortable. The sound quality: just ok. They don't feel soft. In fact they are just too hard and heavy.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had to return mine. Very disappointing. I bought these on the recommendation of a friend and based on the strong reputation of the Beats brand. The reviews I read were very mixed, so I figured I'd give it a try. The immediately frustrating thing was getting them to connect to my Windows 7 PC. After struggling for an hour, I reached out to Apple customer support. They told me that connecting to iOS devices is the only supported use for the product, so I was on my own connecting to my computer (which was the whole reason for my purchase). I finally replaced the bluetooth drivers on my PC and, after a couple of reboots, got the headphones talking. The second frustration is the battery life. 6 hours isn't even one work day. So you definitely can't pull these off the charger in the morning and then use them all day as a hands-free device. But the real Achilles heal for these headphones is the volume limit. If you crank the volume ALL the way up, it is sufficiently loud if you are in a quiet environment. But go for a run on a windy day or try and listen to some music in a starbucks and these simply won't get the job done. The max volume is so low that I would consider it a critical design flaw. All of that said, they are reasonably comfortable, and the fact that iOS will actually show the remaining battery life for the headphones is pretty cool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Headphones money can buy I originally purchased these for my wife who is a runner. I figured these would be the ideal tool for being untethered while running long distances and also for bike training and I cannot express how much she loves them. The sound quality is amazing which could be expected from the Beats name, and the bluetooth connectivity is fast and easy to use. Would strongly suggest purchasing a pair if you are active at work or play.
