Overview

Our take on the Beats by Dr. Dre® Powerbeats3 Wireless

We've been hoping that Beats by Dre would take full advantage of their new relationship with Apple. Enter the Powerbeats3 wireless headphones — lightweight, sweat-resistant earbuds that feature Apple's new, state-of-the-art W1 chip. That means they'll play music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-enabled devices, but they'll work especially well with the iPhone® 7. Beats also redesigned the drivers to deliver stronger sound with workout-fueling bass.

Quick, easy pairing gets you going

Apple users: a one-tap connection syncs up your compatible iPhone with these headphones, wirelessly.

Crutchfield customer from Athens, AL on 12/9/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these for gift to my wife. She needed them to listen to music while exercising, and various other programs, etc. while traveling or at home. The clips over the ears are great for holding the buds in place. Quality product for a fair price. You will be pleased with your purchase of the headphones.

Crutchfield customer from Manhattan Beach, CA on 9/4/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I like the look and feel of it (yellow), but not enough to give it a 5 rating because it does not seem to be loud enough. I don't blast my eardrum out but I would like to have that ability when I am in a noisy environment and need to turn it louder.

Crutchfield customer from Rocky Gap, VA on 5/27/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First, Crutchfield always exceeds my expectations with customer service. I ordered these at 2:00 pm and had them the next day without paying expedited shipping. Second the Powerbeats sound is amazing, they link to my phone immediately. I plan on buying another pair or two for gifts.

Pros: Connect and sound wonderful.

Cons: None

Crutchfield customer from New Paltz, NY on 11/7/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are great. They are comfortable and the sound is good. My one complaint is when the headphones are on I can still hear all the noise around me. The noise cancellation needs improvement! Crutchfield's price is the best I found for these.

Pros:

Cons:

Love these earphones

Bruce from Huntington Beach, CA on 9/25/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Really pleased with sound and ease of use. Hopefully these will last since others sets of different brands just died on me. Battery life is pretty good. Charging cable appears to be proprietary so don't lose it.

Pros: Sound, ease of use, battery life.

Cons: None yet

Works great. Connects immediately to my iPhone . I use them at the gym and they stay on.

Pros:

Cons:

Great sound, but wind noise

Stanton from Houston, TX on 7/7/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very easy to sync to iPhone and great sound indoors. However, when using outside on walks, can get wind noise on breezy days. I changed to foam ear pads to provide better isolation, but can stll have the wind noise. You can still hear the music (or books in my case), but the noise, when it happens, can be a bit distracting.

Pros: Convient, great sound, love the wireless ease of use.

Cons: Can pick up wind noise outside.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall I was disappointed. Expected more for my money.

Pros: Sound quality. Extremely long battery life.

Cons: Could be louder. Does not fit well, the hard plastic is painful to the inner ear but is comfortable and snug to the outer ear

Adam from Loveland, OH on 5/1/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Everything you could want in a wireless headphone. Stays great in your ear with quality sound and easy to charge/ connect to your phone. The mic works very well. Almost too well as my wife says it picks up a decent amount of background noise. Overall no complaints.

Pros: Quality sound Long battery life Quick charge Good mic Easy connect Stays in place

Cons: Mic picks up background noise

Crutchfield customer from Corning NY on 3/29/2017

Crutchfield customer from Los Angeles, CA on 2/15/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product never owned any Dr. Dre product but I like how the feel on my ears usually I have problems with inserts hurting after awhile and have to take them off but with the Dr. Dre Powerbeats3 Wireless I don't have that problem because they are so light and the way they fit the ear I have no pain. GREAT PRODUCT happy to recommend them.

Pros:

Cons:

Great product for the gym or other activities.

Shannon from Atlanta Georgia on 1/31/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great battery and sound is pretty good. Cord is great. Connection and range is superb. No complaints. Worn for 7 hours at work without getting sore. Got mine on a deal.

Pros: Battery, design, connection, range

Cons: Cord maybe if i had to say

Great for running

Crutchfield customer from Staunton, VA on 1/31/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Decent sound quality for the price, you'll hear a difference if you switch between streaming music and downloaded. Definitely has that heavy bass Beats are known for so you might want to adjust your equalizer settings accordingly. The ear hooks work great and are the main reason I bought them, first pair of sport headphones I didn't have to adjust every 5 minutes while running. As stated, pairs easily with an iPhone and doesn't disconnect.

Pros: Stay in place, easy pairing to iPhone, decent sound quality.

Cons: Bass heavy, have to tweak equalizer settings for music streaming.

Awesome Headset!

Crutchfield customer from Destin, FL on 1/21/2017

Peter from Santa Cruz County, CA on 12/5/2016

Great sound, absurdly easy pairing, but best of all for me these have great range. Range is SO variable with Bluetooth, and it just gets worse when you are doing serious outdoor training in the winter. Instead of needing to keep my iPhone on my arm or in the weather, with these I can put the phone in a pocket under my outer layers and still get reception even if my body is between the phone and my right ear and I have no walls near me. Other BT headphones fail at that. Many others fail at that. Controls are functional, voice for calling was average but no better (I could hear well, others could not always hear me well) so I stopped taking calls on the Powerbeats. Integration with the iPhone is great (I use a 7+). The looks of these are not subtle, but I don't wear them to look stealthy. Perspiration resistance is, so far, excellent. I won't really know until I can try them on really hot days but they have already done better than some other sport headphones that I have gotten and returned. These are great headphones for training or outdoor use. I got mine on test from a supplier before Crutchfield got inventory. As you can probably tell, I am a tough sell on Bluetooth headphones. These make the grade.

Pros: Great range, great sound, really easy to use with an iPhone

Cons: Voice calling only so-so, pricey things they are

Features

Overview: The Powerbeats³ Wireless in-ear Bluetooth headphones are designed for active lifestyles. They come with a flexible ear hook and four sizes of ear tips so they will stay in your ears as you work out. You can control your music and phone calls with the in-line RemoteTalk remote/microphone. The Powerbeats³ are powered by a rechargeable battery, and come with four pairs of ear tips and a rubber storage case.

W1 Chip: The Powerbeats³ feature Apple's W1 chip, which gives the earphones greater efficiency and better Bluetooth connections. The Powerbeats³ offer nearly twice as much playback time as it predecessor for longer, multiple workouts and all-day usage. The W1 chip also makes the Bluetooth connection rock solid with fewer dropouts. When pairing with a device running iOS 10, pairing is simplified. Place them near your device, and a prompt will appear on the screen asking if you wish to pair them. The pairing data is also tied to your iCloud account for faster re-pairing.

Dual Drivers: Each Powerbeats³ ear bud has two drivers to deliver your music with power and clarity. These dual drivers provide the Beats Signature sound to power you through your workout.

Water-Resistant: The Powerbeats³ Wireless in-ear headphones are IPX4 water-resistant, so you don't have to worry about your headphones when you're working out in the rain, or when you're covered with sweat.

RemoteTalk: The ear buds are connected by an adjustable wrap-around flat cable with an in-line 3-button RemoteTalk remote and microphone. The controls are fully compatible with iPhone, iPod, and iPad, with many compatible features with Android, Blackberry, and Windows devices. The outer buttons control volume up and down, while the center button can control music playback (pause/play, next track, previous track), as well as Voice Command and Answer/End call.

Rechargeable Battery: The Powerbeats³ Wireless headphones are powered by a 12-hour rechargeable battery. A short USB cable is provided for charging the battery via your computer or another USB charging port. The battery has a Fast Fuel feature that will provide about an hour of playback with a 5-minute charge. A battery status LED on the top of the left ear bud indicates normal use (white), under 1 hour remaining (red), or under 15 minutes remaining (flashing red). Some smart devices provide additional battery status feedback via an on-screen icon.
