    AirPods workout twin - Love em

    • Written by Jarrett H from McDonough

    I love them. The fit is perfect. Reminds my of the weight of the AirPods. They stay in the ear without any adjustments. A little to be desired from sound but the sound is good not great.

    Didn’t have to adjust or push in my ear after I got them in my ear. Very light
    Only going to use them for working out and traveling because I carry my AirPods where ever I go and the Beats Wireless Pro case too big for pocket.

    If you are working out, running or anything and we’re using your AirPods this will change your experience.

    AirPods for people with a different ear shape

    • Written by Britteny R from San Jose

    I had loved the AirPods, but they really only stayed in my ears when I was sitting or just walking. Not at all when working out. Which was fine, because I used other headphones for work outs, but I always missed the ease of connecting, the ear detection, and seamless use the AirPods offered.

    Well miss them no more! These Beats Wireless Pro are what Ive been looking for. Comfortable, secure in my ear, and have all the technology that Ive come to expect from the AirPods!

    So stoked, and hyped on the longer lasting charge, and that the charging case works with a lightning connection, rather than having to make sure I have a different type of cord around like my other rechargable Beats products.

    Completely Amazing!

    • Written by John S from Springfield

    1. Amazing sound quality
    2. Amazing fit
    3. Amazing battery life 9 hours
    4. Amazing water resistance
    5. Amazing tech

    Absolutely happy with this purchase. Could not ask for a better pair of earphones to take with me outside and exercise with. I live in an area where it can rain a lot and having the water resistance is an absolute must.

    The sound quality is balanced really well between the bass, mids and highs. Music is nice and clear with vocals and if you feed the earphones bass it does a great job with that as well. Beats nailed the sound profile extraordinary well and I couldn’t be more satisfied with it right now.

    Love using that H1 chip with Hey Siri and use it all the time. How freaking convenient to have access to Siri by voice command when needed.

    The ear hooks provide excellent fit to hold the Powerbeats Pro securely and in place at all times. No fear with running at all with these on and playing.

    A truly great sounding product that nobody should have any hesitation about purchasing.

    Great But With Some Cons

    • Written by Andy F from Bristol

    I've had the Powerbeats Pro for a week now and overall I've very happy with them. For a start there's all the convenience of the AirPods: charging case so always ready to use, auto-pause, no need for a power button, easy connection to all Apple devices, etc. Sound quality is excellent. Unlike AirPods these earbuds are very secure in my ears and offer much better sound isolation. I can't use AirPods near busy roads if I'm listening to podcasts or audio books for instance.

    Although it's mostly pros for the Powerbeats Pro there are a couple of cons. Firstly, the charging case is large. This is necessary to be able to accommodate the earbuds of course. The 9 hours of battery life should mean I don't need to take the case with me, and if I'm going to be using these earbuds all the time I'm out I won't. I do have to take the case to the office though. Even though the Powerbeats Pro would spend most of the day sat on my desk the battery drain when they're asleep (if they are actually going to sleep, I can't tell) is excessive. Based on my tests I estimate that I'm losing 20% power per day when not in use. Hopefully this is a bug that will be fixed in a future firmware update.

    Overall, these are still the best Bluetooth earbuds I've used, even with the downsides mentioned above.

    Best Workout Headphone

    • Written by Patric S from Littleton

    Lemme start by saying I am only writing this review because of all the negative reviews I read about these headphones. After reading so many complaints about the sound quality I figured I had to say something. The sound quality is much better than AirPods and only slightly slightly worse than the Beats Studio Wireless. I think many people expected these headphones to sound like every other Beats product where the bass is overwhelming no matter what song you're listening to. Thats where I was pleasantly surprised with these! Almost all my music is very well balanced with slight bass where it should be. But when you put on Rap/Hip-Hop the bass is incredible!!

    Ill wrap this up by saying these are the best headphones I have ever used for working out. The sound quality is great, the bass is there when you need it, the comfort is fantastic, the ease of use is incredible thanks to the H1, and call quality is as good as AirPods. I put them through the wringer this last week at the gym and they exceeded every expectation.

    The ONLY complaint I have is I do have to listen to them with the volume almost all the way up when using them in a loud crowded gym. Its by no means a deal breaker, its just the only Con I can think of with the headphones.

    I highly recommend these to any athlete looking for a great headphone to use while at the gym or while training.

    Delighted

    • Written by Robert K from Macclesfield

    I received these a few hours ago. Since that time I’ve made several phone calls and have received really good feedback on call quality. With one “beat” in place it was awesome, and I’d use both if I was somewhere noisy (so that I can hear better). I took the time to try each ear tip and found an ideal fit which also had a big impact on sound quality. I’ll give my Bose Sound Sport to my wife. My son already has my ear pods. If you’re on the fence, get off it and buy some. EQ settings on iPhone work as usual (I’d read that they don’t).

    Flush your ears...

    • Written by Perry K from Laurel

    I too at first thought WTF, these sound terrible, where’s the bass???
    That was with the ear tips that came on the Powerbeats Pro’s new.
    I was at the gym doing what I do or so I was trying to do what I did however the sound leaked, no bass,,
    man I thought too myself, these are secure on my ears but where are my AirPods???
    When I got home I tried the different ear tips and found one that was a better fit for me as they then
    sealed the ear canal.
    The sound was better however, the bass was still not what you would have expected from Beats.
    So I pushed the tips a little more into my ears and then I could hear and feel the bass.
    However, you do not want to be pushing anything to far into your ears so I thought to myself, maybe
    its time to flush my ears again.
    Upon flushing my ears MAN!!! these Powerbeats Pro’s came to life....
    The bass was perfect, not over the top as some would have you think.
    My tip to anyone in the market for true freedom, get a pair, find the right ear tips for you, hook them
    on your ears and twist them into place, that’s right twist them into a good position in your ears making
    them properly sealed and enjoy.

    Remember, we are get a little wax build up in our ears therefore if something does not sound like you
    think it should sound then try clearing/flushing your ears.
    No pun intended!!!

    At last!

    • Written by Gaye L from San Jose

    The AirPods I had always fell out of my ears at random times and I thought the sound was just 'ok'. The Powerbeats Pro stay put exactly as they should, and are very comfortable to wear. Some reviewers have complained about the sound, but I think it's excellent. The battery life is also great and the size of the case is irrelevant to me as I always use either a handbag or backpack. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    Already better than AirPods!

    • Written by Nate O from San Francisco

    Wow! Finally!! A pair of earbuds, truly wireless, that stay in my ears - and made by Apple!! I bought the latest edition AirPods recently and returned them within 1 hr. These are gold standard and I knew from the moment I opened them out of the box they would be staying. Super easy pairing and all interfaces are optimized for Apple but will work with other devices as well. I know what you’re thinking about the price, but it’s totally worth it. I’m done messing around with other brands and wasting money - if you’re ready for something real that gets the job done and can use for everything - including intense workouts - then quit reading this ridiculously long review and buy you some Powerbeats Pro - Totally Wireless Earphones!!

    FINALLY ‼️‼️‼️

    • Written by Prince P from SEATTLE

    Background: I’ve tried almost every kind of Bluetooth headphone & Earbud style headphones. My go to has always been Bose.I always wanted a pair of Beats Studio Wireless Headphones but they hurt my ears. Not enough room in the ear cup .All that being said the one thing I’ve always noticed is you can never get the complete package. Either it has great sound but is uncomfortable or very comfortable but bad sound it just seems like nobody can figure it out. Connectivity has always been the weak link!!!!!Up until NOW!!These Pro’s Are AMAZING!! Feel comfortable after a little adjusting and the right ear tips. Connectivity Perfect!!Battery Life Perfect!!The Charging Case Perfect(ALMOST)All you complaining folks saying it’s too big stick to your AirPods!!)Here’s the big one....Sound!!!!It could be a little more balanced... A better overall Soundstage.....tone down the mids a bit. But overall......WE HAVE A WINNER HERE!!! 5 Stars if the sound was a little more balanced and a wireless charging case!!NO REALLY $250.00 and its 2019 Come on Apple Hook is up with the complete package and include a Wireless charging case...Enough said now go buy a pair!!!!!!!!

    Sound Amazing! Especially if you used other Bluetooth earbuds!

    • Written by Gary H from Fort Lauderdale

    I’ve read complaints! Really I’m don’t get it! I’m actually surprised how well they sound!
    People are talking about the volume range. Not an issue! Use the right size earbuds and you’ll eliminate outside noise and you’ll be good!
    When running on the treadmill I can’t even hear the noise of my feet hitting the machine like I’m used to!

    It was almost too quite! It felt weird because I’m used to the gym noise with other models.

    The bass is on point! Maybe slightly muddy on some hip hop songs.

    I sweat a lot and have burned out several Powerbeats 1,2 & 3 headphones on day 1 of a sweaty workout.

    So, I’ll have to see how these fair with more workouts. But...so far so good!

    What I've been waiting for

    • Written by Andy P from Collinsville

    I loved my Bose QC 35 cans, but after a while my ears and head would get too warm. They were my headphones for long trips and my AirPods were my workout buds. They fit well, but I found it too easy to accidentally knock them out of my ears. The sound was decent, but not like my Bose headphones.

    These Powerbeats are the perfect marriage of comfort, no wires, and awesome sound. The professional reviews were right. Yes, they're expensive, but they deliver on all accounts.

    I'm Divorcing My Jaybird Run and Running Off With PowerBeats!

    • Written by Ronnie B from Waldorf

    I just completed my first full workout with these ear buds, and I'm very impressed so far. These headphones were designed for gym rats and athletes alike. They stay comfortably in the ear and never feel like they might get loose or slip out. No matter how far I walked away from my phone, the headphones maintained a strong connection - not a single studder or distortion. The sound signature is another surprise. I've stayed away from Beats due to the punchy heavy base sound signature they are known for. Apple has improved on the quality of the sound with a more balanced sound signature that still maintains it's heavy base pedigree when needed. You won't get the booty shaking base on every track, but you will get a more balanced sound with nice mids and highs. The Apple Eco system is another plus and a good reason to own these headphones if you are an athlete or gym rat like myself. To sum things up, I'm very impressed with PowerBeats Pro. A little pricey, but well worth the price of admission.

    So close...

    • Written by Marlow F from Roanoke

    These headphones are growing on me due to fit and finish. They fit really well, stay put, and can be warn for hours without discomfort. Pairing with iPhone is seamless, battery life is awesome, and the case is durable. However...the sound quality is very clear and crisp, too crisp! Given the specs, these headphones have the capability to sound amazing.

    Unfortunately, Apple provides no known way to equalize the frequencies highs, mids, and lows. There are some preset settings for Apple Music. Is that it, not other sources? The only additional "feature" that I can tell at this point is truly needed is a way to equalize the sound for the various types of users and music. If I am just ignorant and don't know how to tweak the freqs, please educate me.

    Until customer sound customization is possible for all music sources, I will continue to rotate these in and out of use with the dozen or so other headphones (buds, cans, wired, wireless) that I have until I find the perfect pair. Praying for a software update or setting that allows for user controlled equalization...

    As an aside, when using the Amazon Music app, the music slows down consistently when the users interacts with the lock screen. Bizarre!

    Poor Phone Quality

    • Written by Michael K from Darien

    I like these as earphones for working out. They stay in ear well and audio quality is good. When it comes to phone calls, this is where the Beats fall woefully short. I get complaints that my call audio is poor, muffled, clicking and lots of background noise. Unacceptable for a $250 headset. Will likely return shortly

    Smooth connection, tinny sound

    • Written by Adam W from San Jose

    I'm sure I'll get flamed here for saying something negative about an Apple product, but much as though I want to like these (the connection/pairing experience and iCloud sync across to my Mac and Apple Watch is so clever), the sound quality is...bleh. It's super tinny with very little meat to it without cranking the volume to the point that it almost hurts. I flipped back and forth with my old Bose Soundsports (sheesh do I hate that connecting cable) and while the sound on those is muddier, it's far less harsh and so easier to listen to for extended periods.

    I guess Apple wanted to "de-Beatsify' the sound by toning down the bass, and in the end the turned the treble knob to 11. My search for comfortable AirPod alternatives continues...

    Truly exceptional

    • Written by Raymond T from Monterey

    Overall pretty impressed with the fit and performance of these. They are perfect for my workouts and pairing was too easy. I know the case is big, but I almost don’t need it. I put these in my pocket and carry on with the day. Stays in my ear for my long runs and good bass for when I’m lifting. Also hey Siri is what makes this product the best.

    Sound quality is.... eh!

    • Written by Bradley J

    Got these as I ride my bike to and from work and while I love my Bose SoundSport Frees, I'm always worried they are going to fly out of my ears. Thought these would be a perfect but sound does not hold a candle. I've always heard that Beats are notorious for being too bass-y and drowned out the mids. These are tinny as heck! I've tried a couple of equalizer options, no dice. I haven't used them on my ride yet and will see if they perform better at competing with road noise as they are not only far more secure on my ears but they do appear to seal better within the ear canal. But so far, not blown away, my Bose sound so much better and for about $80 less.

    Not a good product - read below and thank me later

    • Written by Thomas H from Duxbury

    I am on my second pair. first pair stopped pairing with my iPhone. Guy in Apple Store finally agreed they were defective. Gave me a new set, worked for 2 weeks (warrantee period of course) not i have to repair them every few days. Hate having to drag around that huge case as if they become unpaired, its nearly impossible to get them paired again without that case. The opening of the case to pair is not a feature, but a major inconvenience. works inconsistently and requires you to have that massive case with you. Sound is just ok, not great. Pass on these - I am stuck with them now and don't use them. Back to my Senn MTW's (which are amazing)
