These headphones are truly an exceptional piece of technology that you can use for more than just working out. Even though they are designed for working out these headphones are absolutely perfect for the office or just running some errands. With my experience with the headphones it is easy to give this product four stars barring I have any of the quality issues that other have faced.
Product and Criteria
These headphones come with three different types of ear pieces: large, small, and sport. When you have the right sized ear piece in the ability to cancel outer noises is truly highlighted. Even though in-ear head phones have been known for not having the loudest ability or the best range of ability, this set is truly gifted for the quality that is given. The first main criteria for a headphone is price compared to value. At the time that I purchased the headphones, the Powerbeats 3 had just been released causing these headphones to go on a massive sale. With seeing the price decrease so much compared to a slightly improved Powerbeats 3 product the price for the value was a huge win at the time. Another one of the biggest concerns you might have is battery life. With wireless headphones the life just never seems to last long enough, but with the Powerbeats 2 there were many times that I would turn them on in the morning to shockingly still see a full power bar before I start my day. Obviously, there were sometimes that I was startled with an abrupt power down tone after a heavy use day but the Powerbeats 2 still have a pretty good battery life. The next category is connectivity. I have used these headphones with both Apple and Android products over multiple generations of phone/tablet and connectivity has never been an issue. Most of the time these headphones connect to your last device as soon as they are turned on. I have walked around my entire apartment playing music connected to my laptop and never lost a note.
Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase and if these were to break I would absolutely buy another pair! I received a great pair of headphones that truly do not have any of the negatives that any of the other reviews have listed. This improvement in product over the other reviews may have just been a problem solved over time but this is still an absolutely incredible product that I think everybody from athletes to office workers should own!
