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?

    just get a pair of comply ear bud tips and you'll have way better noise isolation if that's what you're looking for] also, usually way more comfy than silicon tips, but alas, to ea their own;]

    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

    I find my Powerbeats 3 wireless headphones great for working out, but they are a HUGE problem for me when running. They are always coming loose or falling out and it’s the most annoying thing. Will these have the same problem or are they designed better so that’s not an issue?

    For iOS users that have the Powerbeats Pro, you can customize the EQ for Apple Music subscribers in Settings > Music > EQ. That helps customize the sound settings for Powerbeats Pro users. Have Fun!

    If you have AirPods or EarPods (with the wire). No need to upgrade. I had my beats for a week and found myself using my earbuds instead! Just more bass with the beats. For $275 the beats were just not worth it! $275 vs $29 EarPods which is actually louder, go with the AirPods or EarPods.

  • DorianDotSlash

    I just returned these yesterday. Nothing beats my Plantronics Backbeat FIT headphones for sound and comfort, and they last a week with a one hour workout every day, or about 7-8 hours continuous which is more than enough for sports earphones.

      @Mark J Rai Why so?

  • revaldo29

    Do they go into idle mode if placed in pockets but not into the charging case? I would like to place them in a pouch in my pocket and pull them out throughout the day and leave the case at home or in my bag only for charging overnight. If

  • PaddyLCubed

    I'd rather take the time and money to buy a pair of Bose or something nicer, and get a custom mold of plugs made. Even with a custom mold, they still come in as a cheaper alternative with the additional benefit of having easy to replace parts.

    Are the earbuds standard? As in if i have a batch of powerbeats replacement earbuds will these work with the powerbeats pro?

    • DoNotCare

      olly miller you can probably use anything. I lost my powerbeats 3 eartips and I just use eartips I bought from amazon. So they’ll probably work with any eartip

    I would love to see a review of the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless once they come in! I've been somewhat partial to Sennheiser for some time now and would love to upgrade my standard cabled in-ear momentums for some wireless ones.

    I mean I'm not happy losing ports but there are some impressive offerings for TWS earphones. I think it would be great if you could do some comparisons between the big brands' offerings and the smaller ones, like the PAMU slide or the EarFun free, that are quite significantly cheaper with only a few sacrifices and see how they stack up
