    Long Battery Life, Clear sound, A few quirks

    For truly wireless earbuds these are excellent. They are easy to use, sound clear, and have amazing battery life. That said, they are not faultless and the issues coupled with the price may be enough to deter you from purchasing. Make an informed decision. Pros: Battery Life- Between the case, charge time, and battery run time I have never run out or even come close. Overall Sound- The sound is very clear and bass is definitely present. That said, the treble can be overwhelming depending on what you are listening to. Fit - You won't have these fall off; They are glued to your ears. If you are looking for a good set of earbuds to work out with or run, look no further. Cons: Ear detection - In general, the automatic ear detection works well. The biggest issue for me is that I use these for conference calls. If you use one earbud for a certain length of time and wish to put in the other earbud to listen to music, it will not activate. The only way I have found to get both buds functioning again is to return both and start from scratch. Call Quality - This isn't a "hard con" but you have to know where it will struggle. These earbuds do a great job blocking wind noise and your voice will be clear, but so will everything else. They pick up and magnify a lot of background noise, the parties on the other end will hear everything. Price - Given some of the other earbuds on the market (looking at you Sennheiser) I think these are priced "ok". Personally, $199 seems much more reasonable, and they will likely go on sale for that in the future. Case - Getting the buds in the case can feel awkward as you almost have to pull the earbuds into the contact points to ensure they are lined up. I am also concerned with how long the case will last under regular use (in a backpack, pocket, etc.). A lot of people will complain about the size, but it doesn't bother me (I don't wear skinny jeans). Passthrough Noise - The sound isolation is great, especially when you are taking public transit etc. That said, it would be nice to have an option to passthrough ambient noise, in the event you want to have a conversation or need to complete a transaction. Overall: I am very pleased with my purchase and they have gone to good use on a few airplane trips already. I don't know if there will be firmware/software updates that remove some of the cons, but knowing apple, they will likely just release a version 2 and increase the price. If you want better sound for a bit more, look at Sennheisers truly wireless. If you want easier to operate but not quite as good sound, look to the regular airpods. If you want decent better life and don't care about sound, look for the cheapest set online.

    This is the best wireless earphone I ever tested

    I ordered PowerBeats Pro on 06-04 and it was shipped thru USPS from Richmond/VA center. it was delivered on 06-06 noontime in California, happy to receive it so fast. The pairing with iPhone is super easy and when the lid was opened, iPhone detected it and prompt to connect. But I bought it not for the iPhone connection, I will wear it to listen music while running with my Garmin Fenix 5X Plus music watch. At beginning I could not pair it with my watch - Garmin Fenix 5X+ prompt to ensure my earphone in pairing mode and from the Google search I found something about pairing - "Of course, you can still use the Powerbeats Pro with a non-Apple device. If you haven't already paired the earbuds to another device, open the case next to your Android phone and go into the Bluetooth settings menu on your phone. If you have paired the earbuds with another device already, place both earbuds in the case and then hold in the button near the front of the case until the status light begins blinking white." Since I paired it with my iPhone already I chose to put both earbuds in the box and press/hold the front button (system button) until status light is blinking white but the watch still prompt "put your ear phone in pairing mode to connect" - tried many times no success. Finally, before giving up I tried to connect the charging box with my existing iPhone lighting cable to see if makes any difference. Then I put both earbuds in the box with lid opened ( this should be in the pairing mode automatically I guess ) . Now my watch found it immediately and connected to it without any issue after that. For me the biggest reason I prefer it over Bose SoundSport Free: 1, With secure-fit earhooks wearing them on the ear I feel much more comfort, also never worry about dropping out. 2, Longer battery time 9 hours VS 4-5 hours 3, Very good sound quality - same or even better 4, Water and Sweat resistance now - same as Bose IPX4 rating not perfect but enough

    Airpod functionality without the fit issues

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    TL;DR Better fit than Airpods with all the smart functionality, good sound for the size. They work slightly better in the Apple ecosystem than other headphones but have little advantage outside of it and even have some major bluetooth issues with Windows. They're arriving on the heels of a long decline in engineering and quality control at Apple so it may be better to wait and see what the reviews say in a year or so. All things considered, they're good but not great and don't quite earn the price tag. I really liked my airpods but they just wouldn't stay in for a workout. The left one would always slip as soon as it got a bit sweaty. Pro These really fix the fit issues with a nice firm fit in the ear and double security with the holder going over the ear. That also gives me a better way to hold them when I take them out to talk to someone. I can hook them on to my bag or hook them around my finger more securely than the shiny smooth airpods. They are more noticeable than the airpods but I don't worry about accidentally knocking them out. They're almost as comfortable as the Plantronics Backbeat Fit but they have much better functionality with the automatic music pausing and better controls. OK The sound quality is ok. They're not full size headphones and you shouldn't expect that. I think it's a bit better than the Airpods but not a lot. It does have better passive noise cancellation. Even comparing them to the Bose 700 full size headphones though, the distortion at higher pitches and lack of clarity is really obvious. Cons They're more expensive than they should be and the bluetooth connection is simple on apple but doesn't give much advantage outside the Apple ecosystem and doesn't really work completely smoothly within the Apple ecosystem. On Android they pair just like any other headphone. On Windows, unfortunately, both the Airpods and the Powerbeats Pro have some issue with bluetooth where Windows will continually take over the connection with them, booting your phone or tablet or any other device you have connected. I don't have this issue with the Bose headphones or anything else, just Apple-made headphones on Windows. It remains to be seen but I also have not been impressed with the build quality of my previous Beats headphones or any of the Apple lineup in recent years. It seems I'm in the Apple store for repairs once or twice a month and my last power beats 2 made it just 13 months with very light use before breaking and Apple basically told me I'd have to buy a new pair. Hopefully these hold up better. I also would have liked some earcup options that allow for less passive cancellation. One of the great things about the Backbeat Fit was that it lets ambient sound in, so when you're running you can hear traffic, pedestrians, crossing signals and anything else you need to be aware of.

    Fantastic Truely Wireless Earbuds

    The Powerbeats Pro are a fantastic choice for truely wireless earbuds. I have always had problems with beats with distortion in the sound with every model before Apple bought them, post Apple they improved to a level that was still lower then what they charged for headphones, but better. These earbuds are more then just sound but the sound is good, the highs and the mids are good and the Bass is definitely present and these seem tuned for hip hop for sure, but not to the point of distortion. I haven’t had any distortion or disconnecting. These earbuds are rock solid when it comes to the features offered, best bluetooth earbuds for iPhone or Apple user. If you’re an audiophile looking for best sound in truely wireless earbuds, these are not for you but they are for almost everyone else I think. The mics are great, the battery life is awesome, the H1 chip is clearly a performer that I had high expectations for and these deliver. I’m impressed by little things I didn’t notice right away but annoyed me on other earbuds Like my Jaybird earbuds or other wireless earbuds. Latency is a huge win on these, these seem to be awesome at maintaining the connection with no delay or down time, if I start typing my old earbuds would have a delay of some sort and blast 6-12 type clicks at once from the delay, like they JUST woke up, these? From the first tap, I hear my keyboard clicks, with no mini gun in my ear. Hey Siri works so well on these I’ve actually started using Siri more. If you have an iPhone, I recommend these 100% or Airpods, something with the H1 chip, the latency is no joke on these. If you have an Android phone? Maybe look for something cheaper, I have heard JLab has earbuds coming out in mid July with similar on buds battery life, or look for something with better integration to your device. The Powerbeats Pro are not cheap by any means, but they will offer an iPhone user something they won’t be getting anywhere else and is worth the money in my opinion.

    Great sounding, true wireless headphones.

    I've gone through so many pairs of headphones and earbuds for working out at the gym that it's embarrassing. Jaybird, Jabra, Bose, Powerbeats 3. You name it, I've likely purchased them and been disappointed with them. Jabra - For me, the sound wasn't good enough. Jaybird - Decent sound, but the fit was off. Bose - Awesome sound, maybe the best, but they hurt my ears. Powerbeats 3 - Good sound, good fit, but that wire drove me crazy. I pre-ordered the Powerbeats Pro the day I found out about them and waited patiently. The 3+ weeks was worth it though. The use the new Apple H1 chip, the same one that is in the Apple AirPods 2. I can only attest to how fast, well and reliable they connect to my iPhone, iPad Pro and MacBook Pro. It's so seamless. I'm going to sync them to my Apple TV next. The fit is fantastic. The default size earbud covers worked great for me, but there are several sizes to choose from if needed. The over-the-ear element goes on easily and keeps the earbuds in place with no movement whatsoever. I wore them for about 5 hours doing yard work one weekend and they felt great the whole time. When running on the treadmill with these, they don't budge. To me, these sound better than the Powerbeats 3 that they replaced. My daughter has the Air Pods 2 and to me, the Powerbeats Pro sound richer and have more bass. That may be a personal preference as millions love their Air Pods, but for me, the Powerbeats Pro sound better. I've seen some complaints about how the case is big and it won't fit in your pocket. The case is big. No getting around that. It's a non-issue for me as I just put the case in my backpack. One more thing, I wear glasses when using a computer so I was worried if these would interfere with how my glasses fit. For me, it's no big deal. I put the Powerbeats Pro on and then my glasses and it's great. They're not cheap, but I don't regret this purchase one bit.

    Best Bluetooth earbuds I've ever owned!

    I had the 2nd Gen AirPods and I loved them, but once these Beats got announced I knew I had to try them. I don't have an iPhone, but these work incredibly well with my Pixel 3a. Each earbud has its own volume rocker. The 'B' button works great to pause, skip, or replay songs. I can even access my Google assistant by holding the button, very similar to how Siri works with iPhones. The only thing I can't do with my Android is check the battery life. Yet, the batteries are so good, I don't have to worry about them much at all. I used these outside for 4 hours of straight listening time and I was impressed. They are very comfortable. My ears felt fine even after using them for that amount of time. I checked the battery life on my iPad once I was done, and after 4 hours of listening they we're both at 54%. They charge pretty fast, so even if they get low, you won't need to wait long to get back at it. I can't recommend these enough! Also, the Bluetooth range is pretty good. I left my phone about 60-70 feet away and didn't have any drop outs until I got past 70 feet. All in all, these are by far the best earbuds I have ever used. Rich bass, a handful of great features, and great quality you'd expect from Beats and Apple.

    The Pro is an awesome upgrade coming from the Powerbeats 3. Very good build quality as to be expected. -Initial connection was painless with my Samsung S8. Now I just pop them in and they auto connect. Have to use a 3rd party app to monitor battery but these last so long not really an issue IMO. -Connection is solid, no lag. Even when I left my phone ~30 feet away in my desk with several walls between. -The sound quality is very good that still has the deep low end which doesn't wash out the mids and highs. -Comfort was also greatly improved, just needed minor adjustment of the hooks and selected buds that fit the best for my ears. I wear these for hours with no discomfort. As designed these excelled while working out. Never had to adjust or worry about them while using weights or out running the trails. -Battery endurance is superb, one charge lasts all day for my music and phone calls. Having additional charges from the case is awesome. -Now about the case, it is fairly large so it can accommodate the ear hook and generous charging capabilities. Due to its size it can be a pain if you're out and about not wanting to carry a bulky case. Also wish you could wireless charge the case but that is only gripe I have so far. Then again Beats 3 case was a flimsy rubber pouch lol -Price is steep but after researching other sets for my criteria this was the best fit and value.

    Okay, If I'm going to review this product i think first you need to know that i have been buying Beat's for about 4 yrs. now I currently own 3 bluetooth headsets for my phone so I have a little experience with this product. With that being said, here goes....Of course I was excited to find that they had created a "wireless "product which in my opinion was the next logical step Yay! for me. The price is a little high for the upgrade. $250.00 but, Okay. It s what it is. 4 STARS Comfort is good. inner ear on left piece was irritated. included earpieces all seem to be the same size. 5 STARS Ear stability is awesome! Never even once thought they were going to fall out. 3 STARS Range is kind of short. Even with a full charge. Obstacles and short distances are challenging. 4 STARS CONTROL Connect, Volume Control, Pause, Next. Are all conveniently synchronized on either R or L Earpiece. A little touchy at first so like anything new there is an adjustment period. 5 STARS SET UP was easy 1,2,3. No real issues here. SEPARATION ANXIETY On 2 occasions I had to remove the left ear piece either for a conversation or some other reason. If the ear pieces are separated there are no warnings or alerts. Outside of the audio disconnect. The ear piece has no "flashing light" or any way of identifying it if you drop it. So.... in other words. DON'T DROP THEM

    Outstanding earphones

    The Powerbeats Pro are exactly as advertised. Easy to setup, and seamless integration into the Apple ecosystem, including iPhone and Watch connection. Very easy to switch devices. The charger fits well and pulls the earphone into place with a magnetic click. Battery life is excellent for those who might use these earphones for several hours throughout the day. I always charge devices when not in use or overnight, so I’m not sure how they would do for folks who forget to charge or try to stretch for multiple days. Tip for Apple users: use the regular setup method. I initially tried to pair these with only the Apple Watch as a generic Bluetooth device rather than using the simple iPhone setup. My goal was to ensure the earphones only connect with the watch. This proved to be problematic based on how the watch and iPhone interact. Once I ran the automatic setup from the iPhone everything has worked perfectly. This is a function of Watch+iPhone and not reflective of anything specific to the Powerbeats Pro. Sound quality is very good, and maintaining a Bluetooth connection is reliable. The medium sized ear inserts are a little small for my ears, and therefore the bass response could be improved with larger and firmer tips - which was true for regular Powerbeats and other earphones. It’s good enough however that I’ve decided to stick with the original tips rather than buying larger tips. Also, the earphones do not have noise cancelling technology. While these are my favorite-ever workout earphones, they are not my earphone of choice for airplane use. For airplanes I still prefer the Bose Quietcontrol, but with their odd horseshoe collar design, those were never a consideration for workout use in the first place. Highly recommended.

    Not for running, connection issues, returned twice

    Horrible connection issues! Why all the good reviews?? Has anyone tried to run with these? I have to admit, I want these earphones so bad, but they just don't work properly. The fit and design is AWESOME, however, they cut out constantly while running and the sound begins to echo outside of the ear. Every time I turn my head left, or right, or look up at the clouds, the earphones connection cuts out and the sound will echo (by the way, I listen to audiobooks while running, so the echoing is extremely noticeable). I have to hit pause, count to three, then unpause for it sound right again (until I turn my head again). It is a constant. Looking over my shoulder to cross the road, sound echos; checking to see if that dog is following me, sound echos; looking up at the pretty cloud formations, sound echos... It's so frustrating. I have tried holding my phone in my hand while running and still I lose connection. Mind you, it is only when I am running that it does this, not when I'm casually listening at my desk (but aren't these made for working out??) I have contacted Apple and they said to exchange them, that this should not happen. I did as suggested, got a new pair, and it happens with the new ones as well. Called Apple again and they tried to restart my earphones. Of course, they would not restart. You're supposed to hold down the button in the case for 15 seconds and the lights are supposed to blink white and red. Mine would not, no matter how long I held that dang button. I wish they worked, I really do, but I can't stand how they lose connection and echo when I am running. For $250 they better work like a charm, and these, unfortunately, did not. Sad!!

    I had been using a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 20 active noise cancelling earbuds. They were (are) awesome, except for the wires and the little 1”x2.5” housing attacked to the wires for the noise cancelling components. Saw Powerbeats Pro and thought they might be what I needed to get away from the wires. I was hesitant because they aren’t active noise cancelling and I am super sound sensitive, so that feature is important to me. I also had listened to my son’s over the ear Beats headphones and found the bass overpowering and muddying the mid-range. Took a chance and ordered the Powerbeats Pro. I couldn’t be happier. The sound is balanced (if not a little bit treble forward), and while they aren’t active noise cancelling, using the right size rubber ear piece created a nice seal that does block out a lot of ambient sound. I spent quite a bit of time determining which of the included rubber ear piece tips worked best for me. Finding the right one is essential not only for comfort, but also for ensuring the bass comes through. I was using some that were comfortable, but the bass was pretty much missing. Switched to the next size up...still comfy...100% improvement in bass. Using them for phone calls works well and callers can’t tell I’m not on my actual phone. Yes, the case won’t fit in your pocket, but with 9 hours of battery life, I don’t see that as a problem. Excellent purchase. Very happy.

    Finally received these yesterday and haven't been able to put them down! I wear headphones 90% of the time at work, and these have been delivering great sound, comfort, and battery life so far. I know that some people are having issues with sound quality - my suggestion would be to adjust playback audio settings on your phone or within the app that you're using. I've found the bass to be solid without being overpowering, and I haven't experienced any tinniness (is that a word?). With both earphones in, I could barely hear my tv in the background, and when I say barely, I mean that I often didn't hear it at all. This might be an issue for people wanting background/surrounding noise to come through (think runners/walkers that want to hear a car coming up behind them). I will only use one earphone when I walk my dog to remedy this, but if you're wanting to use both, keep this in mind. The Powerbeats Pro connected to my iPhone X seamlessly, and I've actually been able to go between my AirPods and Powerbeats Pro without any issues. The case for the PBPro is too big to fit in my pocket, so I still carry my AirPods around. I'd love to see an option to clip the case to a bag or something, like the Powerbeats2 and Studio Wireless cases have. Hope this is at least somewhat helpful.

    Hard to beat if you are an Apple user + Athlete

    Athletes want sweat/water protection, secure fit, nothing that impedes their motion during their activity, long(er) battery life, and a comfortable fit. Great sound is a plus as well. These seem to deliver on all fronts. The H1 chip integration is better than I imagined, allowing me to easily do simple tasks without any button pressing. The case is large but I am not using these as an all day type of earbud with hopes of carrying it my pocket. The case is protective, especially in a gym bag. These are my first truly wireless buds, and I have used wired Bluetooth ones (Bose Sound Sport). The Bose sound great but their biggest limitation in comparison would be shorter battery life and lack of Siri integration. If you don't care about either (meaning 5-6 hours is fine and you don't care/use Siri, check out the Bose as they have been a strong performer for me for the past 2 years in all kinds of conditions...and they cost $130 right now). The only adjustment I am making is when I am not listening to music, I cannot take them out of my ear and rest them around my neck like my Bose because there is no wire. If you get these Beats, spend some time with the ear tips to find the right ones for you. The medium buds were painful after 30 minutes but going to the large ones (for some reason) solved that. If you go too small, you'll lose all bass. Overall, I am happy with their performance.

    If you don’t care for ear drum brain rattling bass... then this are awesome! They have just the right amount of bass but high amount of treble which means when watching movies they are awesome you hear everything! If you are listening to music make sure you set the EQ to a setting you prefer. I love the battery life of these and they are very comfortable. There are some connectivity issues that the Apple AirPods do not seem to have. When switch seamlessly between devices I notice when they have been idle or charging and I quickly open the case and grab an air bud with out my phone showing the animation.... it will connect for example to my Apple TV... then when I leave with out noticing and they disconnect. It makes me have to resync them and they disappear from my Bluetooth devices as well. Definitely not an awesome feature but it’s not a deal breaker. There are some features like low battery warning chime is the same as disconnected chime so that’s confusing when you hear it in the middle of a call thinking your ear piece disconnected. These do come at a big price but because I can use one ear piece for 9-10 hours and they rapidly charge fast I could buy something for half the price and deal with a charging cable and an hour + of charge time. Everyone says I sound great even when driving but only if the AC is not blowing hard because it will quiet me down too much on the other end.

    I have a been a long time Beats consumer. I started out with the OG "over the ears" 10ish years ago. I then moved into a pair of Beats Pro which I loved, but sold shortly after as I was just not using them like I wanted to. Fast forward a few years, and Beats started coming out with their "wireless" Powerbeats line. I think I went through 2 pairs of those and then upgraded into the Powerbeats 3's. I was always jealous of seeing my roommate with his truly wireless Jabra ear buds, and when the Powerbeats Pro's finally were announced, I knew I had to have them. I like many other users, ordered within 5 minutes of release and had to wait until the end of May to receive them. But once I did, I quickly realized they were worth the wait. I absolutely love these things. Not only is the truly wireless aspect amazing, but the battery life and design of these is top notch. I lift weights at least 4 times a week for about 1.5 hours, and then mow the lawn for an hour once a week on top of that and I have not had to charge the carrying case once yet. i think I looked after lifting last night and my charging case still had 18% battery left. My mind was blown. Simply put, if you're on the edge between buying these and saving your money, just buy them. I know its a hefty investment up front, but they are worth every penny, and the build quality is fantastic. You get what you pay for and these are definitely worth the $250 price tag.

    I just received my pair yesterday after preordering them on the apply website on the 3rd of May. So far the sound quality exceeds that of my Powerbeats 3 and they stay in my ear more easily than them as well. This was a huge thing for me as I have small ears. The headphones can either be listened to together or individually, and each have operable buttons to change the volume, activate Siri, accept and hang up phone calls, and pause and play music. The headphones also operate using hey Siri. When using both, if one ear piece is removed from ear the music pauses, if it is placed back in ear the music starts again.

    Overall quality is great. Sound is tuned for Hip-Hop. Other genres still sound great just more focused on the low frequencies than the midrange and highs. Comfortable, ear hooks definitely keep in it place and the ear tips stay snug if you use the right one. If using for running or outdoors and it’s windy, you will hear some wind noise. This does not bother me but putting that here. Charging is amazing. The initial battery on the earphones last awhile before having to recharge them with the case. The case is rather large compared to the dental floss sized AirPods case, but you won’t need to keep the Powerbeats pro in your pocket with the huge battery life already on the earphones. I keep them in my backpack when traveling or I leave the charging case at home when working out. Features like volume rockers and play/pause/forwards and reverse button are on each earphone which is nice to have. Mic quality for phone calls is great (being that your in a quiet room). Bluetooth distance is rather long, walked about 30-40 feet from my phone and through maybe 1-2 walls, one of those walls being a steel door and no loss in connectivity. Overall great headphones, happy with the purchase. Price is rather high, but your paying mostly for the name as well as the quality they claim, and in my opinion Beats/apple delivers.

    I received these about a week ago after pre-ordering them on May 3rd. Before this I owned a pair of the Bose Soundsport Free. I like listening to music and watching videos with these headphones. My Bose headphones had a noticeable lag when watching youtube videos. These headphones did not suffer the same fate. I also like how sturdy they feel on the ear and I believe the sound quality is the same or maybe slightly better than the Bose. I have an iphone so the Hey Siri function is nice too. The only thing that I may have liked better on my last Bose headphones was the way that the crescent shaped buds felt a bit less intrusive in my ears. Other than that these are a win!

    Ill admit, I was a bit skeptical when I saw the price tag. $250 for some earphones that will have a muddy bass sound like all the other Beats? Still, my Powerbeats were wearing out and the Airpods don't fit in my ears secure enough to workout in, so I went for it. And I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, the case is a little large and you aren't going to want to carry it in your pocket, but with a 9 hour claimed battery life, you dont NEED the case on you at all times. The earphones themselves feel good even in the hand. Nice weight to them, don't feel cheap. and flimsy like previous Powerbeats. The fit on me is fantastic. Earhooks are a must for me as small earbuds dont fit in my ears securely. These are snug and dont move, yet aren't so tight that they hurt. Like other newer Beats headphones, pairing to an Apple device is a breeze and takes seconds to complete. Now the sound... nothing like previous Beats earphones or headphones. Tight, accurate bass, clear treble and sound in general. Much more balanced that any other Beats earphone I have tried before. They just feel and sound much more premium than any other Beats before. If you are on the fence, don't be. They are great.

    At first I wasn’t crazy about dropping $250 on a pair of head phones but the more I researched I realized that I had to have these head phones. And even after my research the headphones were even better than advertised. I can only wear over the ear headphones but I was worried that being a single earpiece that they wouldn’t stay on comfortably. I was wrong they fit great and stayed on with no problem. I also found the wires ones cumbersome. I like these a lot because most times I only need one ear piece so that I can multitask. The case fits comfortable into my pocket not to big that they don’t fit and not to small that I would loose them. The case itself charges the headphones so I can go days without recharging the case. Great feature. The other thing I really liked is pairing them to your device, you just turn on the Bluetooth to your device and open the headphone case and a picture of them shows up on your device and guides you through the programming. Last but not least the sound quality is amazing. For me and the things that I do these are the best headphones that I’ve owned and I have several pairs. I’m hoping they go on sale so that I can purchase the blue ones also. Great investment.
