Apple Powerbeats headphones in 'sweat-proof' legal action
A US judge has ruled legal action against Apple over its Powerbeats headphones can go ahead "In part". Apple promoted the Powerbeats 2 headphones as having "Six hours rechargeable battery" and Powerbeats 3 as having "Up to 12 hour battery life". According to the court ruling, published on 16 May, one of the customers received five replacement Powerbeats 2 headphones and they all malfunctioned by "Failing to charge and eventually failing to turn on". Christopher Bizzelle later bought a pair of Powerbeats 3 headphones but had the same problem. Powerbeats 3 currently has a 1.5 star rating from customers on the Apple store, with several complaining that sweat appears to interfere with the headphones' ability to function.
