First off, this product has a good sound quality. Soundstage is good, sound details is nice but not the best. Bass hits the right note and give good impact also the High is not too high it's a perfect settings but there're still some Mid missing. The sound is very similar to Monster Turbine just more Bass impact and details but lack of Mid version. I judge this in-ear a semi noise cancelling earphone since you can hear both music and the noise around you but if you turn the music loud then it will take over the noise around you.

Now the bad part is the build quality. I owned Monster Beat Studio and i can say that the build quality is much better than Power Beat (comparing the housing, rubber, plastic, wire) Power Beat has a poor wire quality i feels like it can tear apart anytime you just have to be very careful of the wire. Also the jack area is made of plastic (which was made of gold in the earlier version) and it really disappoint me how cheap the quality is....

I used it to listen to music on my HTC One X and only used at home and only a few times and it has only bee one month since I bought it. Guess what, the cable is ripped open and now its effecting the sound quality and the microphone is not working properly either. I sent an email to monster and no reply yet. when you buy an expensive headset at A$[$] you expect it to have bit more quality and better customer support. I had a sennheiser headphones before and used it for over 4 years and its still working perfectly and I bought it only for half the price of the beats. absolutely disgusted.

    Comments about Monster Black PowerBeats Sport Headphones:

    I absolutely love these headphones. I am a basshead and love music. I had thought about getting these headphones for a while and kept putting it off. If you love music and want to hear every bit of how it is suppose to sound....look no further. They stay in place and don't squeeze out of your ears when running or working out like all the other ear buds I had tried out. Love'em!

          This is the first pair of Over the ear headphones that I have ever used that actually stay on or in my ear while I'm working out, playing basketball, running, riding my motorcyle, etc. Also the first pair of headphones that I have owned that are sweat proof, another added bonus!!!!

          when swinging a golf club many golfers put both ear buds in however since these earphones have a pause button in the way you have to keep the left earbud out and hook it on to your shirt. I got these Powerbeats for my birthday in October and they lasted me until March or April because the earbuds were coming off so easily....i would recommend these to a friend however these need more bass and better earbuds.

            These are the best product of beats by dr. Dre. Although I had the the solo Hd's and the studios, I think these are the best for traveling and listening to music. It has lots of options like the extension wire, extra earbuds, case and etc. They are many options for the in-ear headphones from beats by dre like the tours, Ibeats, diddybeats, heart beats but in my opinion these are the best one and the most useable one to listen to music and enjoy. At the end I think these pair of power beats are AMAZING!

              Comments about Monster Black PowerBeats Sport Headphones:

              DO NOT BUY!!!
              I own several high end headphones (Senheiser, Shure, Ulitmate Ears, Klipsch, etc.) and several Beats by Dre (Pro, Pro Detox Edition, Studio, Tour & iBeats)
              I love them all.
              PowerBeats are sold as a 'workout' headphone but sweat ruins them. ???

              I purchased a pair for running. Loved them. The hooks keep them in place when working out and the sound is terrific.

              The problem lies in the ControlTalk module. The ControlTalk touch your body somewhere. When you sweat, it gets wet. For some reason, the workout headphone cannot get wet. It starts to 'short out'.
              The volume goes up or down; music pauses/starts.
              if using Nike+, will make the announcement come on or stop your workout. You have to keep correcting the error, but after a while the unit becomes unresponsive and you have to unplug the PowerBeats (while working out).

              They will last you about 5 months....if you're lucky.

              Had mine replaced under warranty. Customer support basically acknowledged that it is a known design flaw and was told they were changing the design. I used them only occasionally after replacement, because they are so fragile.
              Now, they are shorting out again.
              When I contacted Monster regarding a replacement, I was told that I had a 1 year warranty FROM THE ORIGINAL PURCHASE DATE, NOT FROM THE DATE I RECEIVED THE BRAND NEW REPLACEMENTS.

              I was offerred a discount on a new pair. Hahahahahahaha
