    Fable, how are they with sunglasses on? I have the S305's as well and those hooks around the ears while wearing sunglasses hurt the mess out of my ears. That's been the biggest reason I wasn't going to get the PB3's.
    Most of the time it hasn't been an issue. Occasionally my Oakley (sport wrap style) do force the PB3s to move a bit too much during a run.. but they don't hurt like the 305s did. The 305s kinda pinched in vs PB3s that just kind of sit there. At this point the PB3s were a drastic improvement over the aging S305.. but that is expected.

    Still a big fan of this latest incarnation of the Power Beats.

    Do they stay one while you run?
    - Yep they do remain on while running.. that is not to say that I don't have to "fix" the fit from time to time. I live in New England and it was cold up until this weekend.. so depending on how you wear the wire (in front, on head or in back) it has the potential to rub against clothing / hoods and move.

    Are they comfortable while you run? How long are you running?
    Very comfortable although as previously mentioned this has a lot to do with messing with the additional earcups and the general size of your ears. I run about 30 mins offroad on back trails. I also take them for walks with the dog as I use them for phone calls.

    Have you tried to run with Apple Watch and beats?
    Absolutely - the Series 2 and the PB3 work amazing together. I love being able to leave the phone behind and still have access to my music. Its been a flawless experience (with the exception of when coming back into range of the phone - slight 10 second sync).
    Fable, My PB3 arrives..! They are gorgeous and looks awesome!

    But I have a doubt: for those who bought, they (the PB3) had this small line (looks an attachment) like mine (photo on the link)?

    Mine are the black ones and I can't see any lines, but I am also old and don't have the best eye sight anymore

    I am trying to figure out how you got your phone to zoom in that fine. I wasn't able to get a zoomed in shot of mine. I have the green with black casings obviously but my eyes aren't good enough to see a line on mine. I tried zooming but didn't see one.

    I do not have a line like this on my PB3s.

    I've had my PB3s for about a month or so and they've been great, but now I'm having a problem. I use them primarily when I run, and have done about 20-25 runs ranging from 5-10 miles and they've been flawless. today was my second run in some pretty frigid cold(Boston area) and after less than a mile, they dropped the connection to the phone and shut down. I couldn't get them to turn back on for about 20 minutes. The phone didn't shut down, just the PB3s, and this happened on both of the 2 cold runs.

    Has anyone had any problems with these in the cold? I had the PB2s before these and ran all last winter with them without a problem.

    Do they need to warm up before they can reconnect? I'm in Connecticut and don't do a lot of outdoor running with the ice on the ground but just a thought - if the problem repeats go ahead and try to forget them an then reconnect the headset through a normal pairing. Where was your phone and was it doing anything strange.

    I did some quick web searches and I can't seem to find anyone else asking about this one. I have used them in single digit weather but it wasn't much more than 20 mins or so.

    I throw them in the Mophie charge case I picked up and they charge while I shower and get ready for work and I am good to go for the rest of the day..
    Bamf - thanks again for the tip on the Mophie Charge case. I put them on my Christmas list and having had a chance to play around with it - its a solid buy. The size of the unit is perfect and I don't feel like I am going to break them putting them in and out of the case (like the cheap rubber one that comes with the PB3). Here are some shots of it for folks interested:
    Powerbeats 3 Hands On-01ddebd64f676eaf922c3d71915f31fbd267b47fc7.jpg

    As you can see from the image above, they fit nicely inside and there is an included power cable to keep them charged. The case uses a solid zipper and you can keep track of the charge on it with lights (1-4) on the bottom side of the case (see below):
    Powerbeats 3 Hands On-013b70c1275855c01ce75bb0e4240ed7fed520f267.jpg

    This will be perfect for keeping in my bag when I travel for work or holiday.

    One additional item: The case/charger comes with only one chord. I think this would work best if used with a secondary mini usb / charger combo. As I have plenty around from my Android days - it wasn't an issue for me but folks should be aware. You could alternately take the cable and charge the case separately off USB and then use the same chord to power up the PB3s.

    Hadn't thought of that. I plugged that cable into my dock charger. Again. Solid idea.

    After checking some review on powerbeats 3 wireless, I notice beats by dr.dre product improve a lot. I decide to give it a try as well.



    As some reviewer mentioned, once you get your correct good fit earbuds, then you are on the go.

    I am not an audiophile but for me the bass is strong and deep but not over with crystal clear vocal. It sound the best by setup the iPhone 7 Plus equalizer to R&B.

    I am absolutely no regret getting this powerbeats 3 wireless which also same as AirPods utilize W1 chip that have extreme long distance Class 1 Bluetooth connectivity and extreme easier pairing with iPhone 7 Plus.

    This powerbeats 3 wireless is the best companion wireless headset for iPhone 7 Plus.
