    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.

    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.

    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!!!!!!!!

    brutally honest review

    • Written by Wei J from New York

    TLDR: One of the best on current market (6/2019) for sports, all day wear, overall sound quality, and those fed up with "wireless" wire/remote that often need readjustments.

    1. Poor reviews might be due to defective first batch/shipments that apple is known for, or just people rushing to publish reviews before bothering to experiment with the silicone tips and other stuff, or comparing the buds to full size studio headphones (lul muh sound quality). The tips actually made a HUGE difference in sound quality, esp with bass. Regardless of your previous tip sizes used for other brands and even for other beats, just try all the tips. The tips on the earbuds were medium, the package had small, large, and a different medium with 2 layer tips. If you feel the bass is weak, try one size bigger. Large worked best for me, but I also usually use large tips for other buds. The 2 layer medium felt more "airy" than the standard medium, not sure if that's because I normally wear large. But it can be handy if you need to head external noises, like when biking or when you have to talk/listen in the office, this way you can use those different tips instead of taking the earbuds on and off.

    2. Flush your ears with debrox or some other chemical for earwax. Physical removal can be painful and potentially dangerous. It makes a difference in sound, and also general comfort. Most people are not aware or don't think about this, like I used to be.

    3. Full size headphones of similar price/brand/tier will almost always be better for sound, because they don't really have to worry about size, weight, and have bigger/more drivers vs. smaller/less drivers for wireless buds. You are bound to have to make tradeoffs for true wireless form factor. Be realistic and aware.

    4. Battery life is probably 6-7 hours for regular max to 2-4 volume levels below max volume, 9 hours is probably for mixed use, or music at 50% volume.

    5. The pairing ui refer to these as airpods, so they probably rushed this out before other brands also improve their buds' battery life. Wonder if this would have happened if Steve Jobs was alive.

    In the end, give it a try, because it is currently the only true wireless buds with this kind of build quality, battery life, and form factor, and 14 days return. Bose and momentum didn't work for me, because short battery life and only for walking (fell out during high intensity workouts). Other "wireless" buds always had problems with wires getting caught in clothes, stuck/pull on buds when turning head left/right. When I want serious sound, I have several over the ear headphones at home/work for that. These are for long commutes, intensive exercise, while not sacrificing sound/durability/wearability like plantronics/sony/bose/others. The price probably should be $200, but there's no competitor right now that checks all those boxes.

    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!

    Good Job!

    • Written by Aaron W from Jacksonville

    So I lift heavy 5 -6 days a week, AirPods fall out while benching a 90lb dumbbell as my head starts to shake. These stay in no matter how heavy I go with resistance. A read a few 1 star reviews about other people saying there is no bass, other callers can’t hear, high volume setting distorts the sound. I have experienced the opposite. Great sound even at high setting, I hear calls way clearer then my Bose Soundsports, and I have had no one complain they can’t hear me well or picking up background noise to bad (and I work in and out of busy airports all day so.) Love my Power Beats Pro!

    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.

    These are AirPod 2’s on Steroids

    • Written by Ricardo S from Ft. Lauderdale

    This is the wireless product I have been waiting for.
    I held off on the 2nd Gen Airpods because I wanted Powerbeats Pro.
    I am extremely pleased with this product.
    The battery life is legit 9hours.
    The audio quality is easily 5x times better than Airpods.
    They stay in the ear and don’t fall out.
    Each one has its own volume control and play and pause button.

    The case is a little bulky, but the battery life of the buds makes up for that.
    Because they hold such a long battery I don’t need to carry the case everywhere I go!

    BRILLIANT!

    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!

    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.

    Fail to consistently charge

    • Written by David F from Atlanta

    The Powerbeats Pro fail to consistently charge, so that when you go to use them, more often than not, one (or both) earphones is totally dead. You then have to put both earphones back in the case and wait 5-10 minutes to get a decent charge. This is maddeningly frustrating. Once working, these are great. The problem is, they only work about 40% of the time.

    Absolute best!

    • Written by Isaac K from Kalona

    To all the people who complain of wireless dropouts and treble: If you're only using one earbud, you must keep the other in the case, or else make sure the optical sensor is not covered. If it thinks both earbuds are in your ears, and you are a distance from the other earbud, you will experience dropouts. Just the way they are designed, and it makes perfect sense.

    Also, what the heck are you people talking about with the "tinny" sound? If you're expecting the original Beats' exaggerated bass which provide a muffled sound, yes, you will be surprised. Welcome to reality.

    Great on every point except the volume... too low!

    • Written by Louis W from San Juan Capistrano

    Pros: Fit, comfort, battery life, charger, pairing across devices, phone call quality... all these things were exactly the improvements I was looking for from the powerbeats 3s and I wasn't disappointed at all.

    Con: MAX VOLUME IS TOOOOOOOOO LOW. The whole point in getting high end headphones, especially Beats by Dre, is so you hear the fullness of sound at great volume. These do not deliver on that requirement for me. If the goal was to prolong battery life, decreasing volume capability was the wrong area to focus on... for me anyway.

    This may be enough for me to return them to the Apple store. Sound quality and volume is everything.

    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

    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.
