Although the Powerbeats 2 provide a decent audio experience and are comfortable, the overwhelming reports on their fragility suggests they break quite easily.
The Powerbeats 2 in-ear headphones have received positive reviews for their overall good sound, their comfortable and decent fit that is suitable for sporty individuals, their cool design, their ability to pair easily with your device and the fact that they are sweat and water resistant. There were, however, an overwhelming amount of reviews pointing out their fragility. Many found that these did break quite easily if handled roughly. They are also said to have a very short battery life and their charging cable is very short. Users also pointed out that although the earbuds are sweat and water resistant, the inline remote is not.
