    The new 2nd gen Airpods were impressive, but Apple's new Powerbeats Pro are even MORE impressive, especially for active users. But are they good enough to impress non-athletes?

    This review is crap. Apple didn’t do anything crazy here. If your an athlete or just like working out to music, get Jaybirds , there way better and more sweat resistance and leagues ahead in audio quality that these PowerBeats pros. I bought the pro’s and was thoroughly disappointed and they were my first beats I ever bought. I went back got a refund and got Jaybirds and it was night and day and also you can adjust the low, mids, and high settings as well. And you can also check out other people’s audio settings and download them to your Jaybirds wirelessly. Also it has IPX7 sweat and water protection, so if your working out crazily or if water gets on them it isn’t even an issue. Beats are a joke it’s only popular because of the brand name that there made “By Dre”. Don’t fall for this review and spend 250 dollars. Instead get the superior Jaybird workout earbuds at only 110$ for the X4 model.

    Am I the only one who is experiencing this problem? I bought this pair of headphones, and I noticed that there’s a problem with them while I am working out. The problem was with the connectivity. They disconnect for 2 to 3 seconds. Also, the sound sometimes changes, and it feels like it is coming from a deep place. I returned them to Apple and get new ones, and still the problem is there with the second pair of headphones.

      Not the kind that noise cancelling headsets can give you. And it’ll also depend on the ear inserts you choose. I actually don’t want the noise cancelling feature because I don’t want to get run over by a car when I run. I opted for the smallest of the four and even then I needed to twist it a bit counterclockwise for my left and clockwise for my right so I can have more ambient sound come in. But that’s only when I want to hear maximum ambient.
      One thing I can see an improvement on is the ease of the play/pause button. It’s too easy to press, but it’s not that bad to be a dealbreaker for me.

      Hi, did I make a mistake wearing them? I send them back because there's a bad isolation to outside. When I turn up the volume more than 50% you can hear the music outside. Do you have the same issue?

    I prefer my AirPods 2 over these. I just purchased them from the Apple store got home was excited and it was a major let down. My AirPods sound better or the same as Powerbeats pro just without the extra bass. I thought it would be a huge difference but meh returning them tomorrow

  • J Angeles

    Believe it or not the bass is actually flat. Apple tuned them to the latest research that shows in-ears need a sub bass boost. Beats haven’t been about bass since apple acquired them. They are actually more reference sounding than the momentum wireless even though those are good too. The weakest link in the sound of the beats is the treble past 10k. I must add Sennheiser is really bad when it comes to in ears, the ie80 was so overrated and overpriced that Chinese knockoffs today have identical sound. With the momentum wireless they made a lot of progress but apple has a better sound team for in-ears. The momentum have boosted artificial treble that some so called audiophiles tend to like but it’s not flat. Sennheiser can’t be beat when it comes to full size headphones though

    My favorite part is that after 2 years when the batteries degrade to crap like my AirPods have, the batteries aren’t impossible to replace since they’re only soldered with 2 wires (not as convenient as the Galaxy Buds, but way better than the tick welded and heavily glued in ones of the AirPods) and removing the cover over the main part isn’t too hard. Plus the fact that the cells are 200mWh compared to 93mWh means these will retain a decent capacity for many years and it’ll probably be 5 years before they become annoyingly low in capacity. And with the extra sound quality, these are definitely good and I’ll buy them real soon
