Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats High-Performance Wireless Earphones
This Bluetooth "on-ear" wireless headset is engineered to fit somewhere between the Beats Pro "true wireless" headset and the Beats Power3. It is very much like the latter, except that it uses the Apple headset chip that allows fast connection to Apple products, and does so much more easily than the Powerbeats3 (the same technology used by the Beats Pro, the the Airpod and the Airpod Pro). Unlike the Powerbeats3 (which uses a micro-USB cable), it uses the standard Apple Lightning connector. Getting it to work with an Apple product (e.g. iPhone, iPad or iPad Touch is thus a lot smoother. Whether the sound quality is any better is debatable. Reviews that I read before purchasing it said it is, mine ears say they are about the same. The fit of the news hook around your ears may be superior, although I think even that is debatable. However, the connecting cable between the two ears is intended to hang around the back of the neck, rather than in front (as was the case with the PowerBeats3), and I think this is a more sensible design. The Beat Listed at $150, it is $50 less expensive than the PowerBeats 3, and $100 less expensive than the Beats Pro (although the latter has routinely been discounted to $199, while the former is now being sold at well under $100). Considering that $150 was the original pricing of the BeatsX, a much inferior product, I think the new Powerbeats a good buy.
I can’t do “pods” because I do a lot of yard work and running so they always fall out of my ears. With these I don’t have to worry about that and they have enough kick to not get drowned out by my power equipment. A+
I use these for primarily for work (attending virtual meetings) but also desired a quality solution for recreation (streaming movies and music). Previous experience with Bluetooth devices (LG, Taotronics) was frustrating because of unreliable connection and sound quality. Having Apple devices, I decided to explore higher priced devices. Compared PowerBeats with AirPods 2 (my wife has a set) and decided PowerBeats more versatile for variety of uses. Excellent sound quality. Reported by others that my voice quality on calls is clear without distortion. After some experimentation with different ear tips and adjusting loops, found them to be comfortable for long periods. Battery lasts 2 full working days of conversations (15 hours as advertised). Quick charge for extra hour is nice feature to extend in a pinch. Pairing first to iPhone XsMax could not have been easier. They were immediately available to all iOS and Mac devices registered to my Apple account. Switching between devices without error is straight forward. Connection/hand-off behavior is similar to AirPods. Range covers practically entire home.
They are way better than I expected. I though the over the ear set up would bother me but it actually is comfortable and reassuring knowing they wont fall out. The sound quality is the best I have heard but this is coming from someone who always bough less expensive wired headphones so these are a major upgrade.
I purchased these because I wanted good quality music for when I work out. I like these because they do not fall out when I am working out and for when I'm in the office. They also have great charge!
A bit more than I wanted to spend but it is worth it!
Great sound and battery life! A+ for that. Giving it a 4star rating due to the fact that it took a few times for the fit to work with the changeable earbuds. Apple Airpods on the flip side were far better on the fit... LOVE The battery life here so keeping these...
These were my second pair of Beats brand headphones. They were light, easy to connect to my phone. They didn't feel as comfortable as I would like. I have a pair of Sony behind the ear headsets and as far as quality they are just as good. If your looking for a pair of headphones these are great. They fit in your pocket or backpack easy. And hold a long charge.

Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats
The Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats earphones offer booming bass in an exercise-friendly design, but are more expensive than some comparable competition.Full Review
A:AnswerAccording to the instructions included, yes. Also in instructions I noticed reference to a Beats app for Android (see link to Beats Support page: https://www.beatsbydre.com/support/how-to/use-the-beats-app-for-android) they claim it is intended to provide some of the control features built in to IPhones/iPads. Full disclosure: I have no first-hand experience with Android. Best wishes.
A:AnswerModel #ML8V2LL/A is the older Powerbeats 3 and Model:MWNV2LL/A is the newer version (unofficially Powerbeats 4). The ear hook on the newer model is more form fitting battery life is three hours longer.
