Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless In-Ear Headphones

  • Overview

    Performance and power

    Inspired by LeBron James, the Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats2 Wireless headphones are exceptionally light and deliver the power of dual-driver acoustics to propel you through rigorous workouts.

    Designed to endure

    The IPX-4 sweat- and water-resistance rating means Powerbeats2 Wireless are tough from ear bud to the tangle-free cable wrap around. There's also over-moulding on the RemoteTalk for a no-slip grip when you’re changing volume, switching tracks and making hands-free calls.

    More freedom

    From the street to the court, Powerbeats2 Wireless gives you the freedom to take your workout anywhere. Wireless Bluetooth lets you connect up to 9.1 metres from your Bluetooth-enabled iPhone, iPad or iPod - so you can move freely and stay focused on your workout. A rechargeable battery with 6-hour playback gives you the power to endure to the end. If you’re on empty, a 15-minute quick charge delivers an extra hour of non-stop playback.

    Made to perform

    Designed with your active life in mind, Powerbeats2 Wireless is lightweight and compact with a flexible ear hook to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.

      Sound Lag

      These earphones are great for running, they fit very well, are light and the sound is fantastic. Unfortunately they have a huge flaw, whenever you watch video These earphones are great for running, they fit very well, are light and the sound is fantastic. Unfortunately they have a huge flaw, whenever you watch video back, be it from an iPhone, PC, Mac, TV anything at all it has about a 2 second delay so everything is out of Sync. I have spoken to Beats support and they feel that the issue is all of the other manufactures need to issue an update to fix this. I explained that all of the other bluetooth headphones I own do not have this problem and work fine with iPhone, Mac Tv etc. Even a little £25 Sony Bluetooth dongle works better than these £170 earphones. If you just want them for running then go for it, they sound good and fit well. Don't touch them if you want to use them for watching Video however. In my opinion and at this price they need to do both and these simply don't. Needless to say mine are being returned to Apple tomorrow for a refund....

      Best Fit but very occasional drop in connection

      I've bought a number of earphones specifically for use when running both on road and a treadmill. For many I've generally found poor fitting not only annoying I've bought a number of earphones specifically for use when running both on road and a treadmill. For many I've generally found poor fitting not only annoying but also negatively effects the quality of the sound by reducing the bass. My last wireless pair were Jaybird Bluebird X which tend to bounce out of your ear and if you wear the wire up and over your ears as it suggests, the wire keeps bouncing off the back of your neck which is more than a little annoying. I've had the latest Beats wireless earphones for 4 weeks using them pretty much every other day for running and the fit is the best I've experienced from both wired and wireless earphones. You can choose the size of bud and then just push in your ears with the fitting over the back of each ear, then a simple twist and they snugly lock into place. The sound has a great bass which now you can adjust equalisation if you are playing music using the latest Spotify app - however having tried you don't really need to adjust the sound as the fit and sound quality of these earphones are so good anyway. The controls seem very sturdy especially compared to my wired Beats earphones that are very plastic and fragile in comparison. You can easily control volume and track play/pause/forward/back. You can also shorten the ear to ear cable that sits comfortably on the back of your neck. The only slight downside is the occasional loss of connection. You don't need to do anything as it sorts itself out but I have experienced an occasional drop of sound or jump in the track which I've not experienced with other Bluetooth headsets. It's not really a big deal as it is more of an occasional thing rather than constant occurrence. I wear my iphone around my waist so if you have a wrist case this may not be an problem anyway, however this is why it's a 4 star rather than 5 in my book.

      In ear piece snapped

      I had the headphones for 4-6 months and yesterday coming back from the gym, I removed them from my ear to put them on my desk and noticed some unusual wires... I had the headphones for 4-6 months and yesterday coming back from the gym, I removed them from my ear to put them on my desk and noticed some unusual wires... It was the in ear part that snapped from the headphones. There was not force applied to it or anything, I always took care of this headphones. Apparently I'm not the only one and Apple will not replace them. Really BAD QUALITY!! What else to say... I'll have to wait to buy some other bluetooth headphones.

      Best earphones I've ever owned

      I have no idea why these are getting bad reviews. They sound amazing, have great battery life, very loud and have great sound quality. This was my first pair of I have no idea why these are getting bad reviews. They sound amazing, have great battery life, very loud and have great sound quality. This was my first pair of Bluetooth earphones and I don't think I'd have a normal pair again, so much better when at the gym and running. I upgraded the earpieces to some Comply TX-400 foam ones and they fit great, very comfortable. These are expensive but I have had mines for over a year and they have never let me down.

      Must Read Review

      I was toying with the idea for many months after reading reviews regarding this product, some good and some really poor which made me have doubt. In the end I w I was toying with the idea for many months after reading reviews regarding this product, some good and some really poor which made me have doubt. In the end I went for it and I am really pleased with the product. They are easy to set up, comfortable and no loss in sound, connectivity or anything that has been mentioned. There's a web app to download where you get updates and you have to update the software in the headphones. Downside if there is one, the price shouldn't be £169, it should be £120 maximum for what they are. Used them in my first gym session today and great fit and can actually run without wires getting caught up or in the way and concentrate on performance
