Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • Powerbeats Pro are Beats' first true wireless earbuds and a better companion for your iPhone than Apple AirPods 
  • Activate Siri by just saying "Hey, Siri" instead of touching a button  
  • Ear hooks are easily adjustable to your liking and eliminate ear canal pressure for a more stable and balanced fit 
  • The H1 chip, combined with Bluetooth 5, provides faster, more stable wireless connectivity to Apple and Android devices with almost zero lag 
  • Sound quality enriched with plenty of low-end bass to keep the energy up at the gym, but that don't drown the mids or highs
  • Built-in mic and controls to answer calls, adjust volume and skip tracks on both sides of the earbuds 
  • Beats Powerbeats Pro are sweat and water resistant. With an IPX4 certification, no need to worry about how sweaty you get during a workout 
  • Up to 9 hours battery life on a single charge and 15 hours of extra power with the charging case 
  • Fast fuel technology offers up to 1.5 hours of playback with only 5 minutes of charging time 

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • The hooks may feel a little uncomfortable during long listening sessions as they put some pressure on the ears 
  • The Beats Powerbeats Pro sounds great, as long as you get a good fit, otherwise they sound thinner than they should 
  • Bass heavy tuning with extra bit of treble sharpness is ideal for training, but not for laid-back, relaxed listening 
  • No active noise cancellation. Unless you play your music at uncomfortable levels, expect to hear everything going on around you 
  • At $250, Powerbeats Pro don't come cheap, other true wireless earbuds are economical, even Airpods are cheaper by $50 - $100
  • The notification window shows the battery indicator only on iPhone, not on Android phones
  • The charging case is huge and twice the sizes of other models, as the buds themselves are much larger than most truly wireless earbuds
  • The case is charged with a Lightning cable, which is good for apple users but Android users will have to carry an extra cable while traveling

Highlights

  • True wireless high-performance Beats headphones 
  • Up to 9 hours of listening time (over 24 hours with carrying case) 
  • Adjustable, secure-fitting ear hooks for lightweight comfort and stability 
  • Reinforced design for sweat and water resistance during hard workouts 
  • Volume and track controls on both earbuds, voice function and auto play/pause 
  • Powerful, balanced sound with dynamic range and noise isolation 
  • Class 1 Bluetooth offers extended range and fewer dropouts 
  • Fast Fuel lets you play 1.5 hours after 5 minutes of charging when the battery is low 
  • Improved call performance and call handling from both the earbuds
