powerbeats by Beats (Apple) 4/5
I’ve had these for a good couple of months and been using them at the gym and the few times I went out running. The sound’s great and carries you into the world of music where the surroundings can be forgotten.
The powerbeat package comes with the typical Apple feel to it where the box has a unique and pleasent feel and even the insides are crisp and clean, complimenting the earphones themselves.
The powerbeat earpieces come sitting on top of a white plastic mold. The orange earpieces with white support are complimented elegantly with the white and orange box design.
Earpieces with the white cable and orange clicker. The clicker also contains the microphone for hands free communication.
The main cable attached to the earphones is about 3 ft long. They also come with an extension cable that is about 3 ft long too. Being 6 feet tall I had to buy an armband, because the main cable won’t span my chest down to my pockets, yet with the extension cable attached there was enough slack for me to trip over.

The whole box laid out, the bundle comes with earphones, extension cable, six ear buds, and a carrying case.

Overall I’ve been impressed with the sound and durability of the powerbeats. Usually earphones last me only a couple of months before they break because of some cable issues. But these have survived almost 6 months, I’ve thrown them around, submerged them in sweat, and even stepped on them, yet they are playing great and still look good!
