Apple has made concessions and agreed to allocate $9.75 million to compensate the owners of Powerbeats 2 headphones. It turned out that they do not meet the characteristics stated in the description: the model was specified as moisture-proof and “hardy”. At the same time, users complained that after a short time of work the headphones stopped holding the charge and could completely fail.
The corporation that bought the Beats brand agreed to settle the claims in the pre-trial procedure. However, Apple does not agree with the charges: it just thought that this option would be cheaper than the lawsuits.
Claims for compensation will be able to Powerbeats 2 owners from the U.S., who bought headphones before August 7 this year. The maximum amount of compensation is $189 if there is proof of purchase of headphones.
