    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.

    Sound is wonderful , but not good for answering calls at all

    • Written by Vitelio A from Pasadena

    I recently received my Powerbeats Pro and there seems to be an issue where when I get a call I click the beats button to answer and I cannot hear anyone at all. Instead the call is transferred to my phone instead of the Bluetooth Powerbeats Pro earbud . It happens constantly ! You can make calls fine with no issues and hear everything great , but when you receive a call don’t expect to hear anyone , and you’ll have to call them back . I will change my review to 5 stars when it is fixed with an update.

    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.

    To the person who can't take a call on these

    • Written by Jamie S from Pomona

    My co-worker said he used to have issues with phone calls when he had Tiles installed on his phone. He could listen to music with his wireless Beats X, but when he would take a call, the connection would drop a few seconds in and the call would divert to his phone. He said after he disconnected all of his Tiles, the issue was fixed. Not sure if this will work for you, but if you haveTiles, try disconnecting them and see if it helps. Also, if you don't have Tiles, you may have other bluetooth devices connected to your phone. Try switching to your Powerbeats Pro in your list. Or turn off your other bluetooth devices. Sometimes your phone will disconnect and try to connect to another device & if it fails, it diverts to your phone instead of back to your preferred device - in this case, your Powerbeats Pro.

    Sound quality is less than stellar

    • Written by Keith W from Brooklyn

    I ordered these right away after hearing good reviews from early You Tubers. I wanted to use them mostly for gym purposes. I have the AirPods 2 and they sound ok for what they are. Unfortunately for actual gym use the AirPods don't stay snug in my ears so I basically use them for phone calls. When these Power Beats Pro were released I thought these would be the solution for my situation. However when I received them today paired them to my phone I was shocked how lack luster the sound quality is. I've been using the Bose Free Sound Sports for the gym and although they are not perfect the sound quality blows these Power Beats Pro out of the water. I was literally laughing at the sound of the Power Beats Pros after being used to the Bose. I don't know how others feel but for $272.00 I want some amazing sound quality with full range coming from them. These have that mid to high range sound with not too much low end or high end just a lot of emphasis on mid range. You can get that kind of sound quality from a pair of wireless earbuds on Amazon for like $30. I know, I know you won't get the "H1" chip with $30 earbuds, but they will have the same sound. So for me I'm not willing to fork over an extra $240 for the convenience of that chip for $30 sound quality. I also noticed that you can't help but hit the Beats logo when putting them in your ears which stops the music and kind of got annoying real quick. But to be fair maybe with time of use you would get used to placing them in your ears without pushing the button by accident. I really can't comment on battery life because I put these things right back in the box to return them. I'm sticking with the Bose.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Returning to Apple. Can't shut them off!

    • Written by Todd M from New York

    Why I'm returning these Powerbeats Pro.

    I like them for exercising. They won't fall out and the sound is decent. Battery life - I get about three hours watching YouTube videos.

    What doesn't work for me....

    You can't turn them off unless you put them back in its case. Poor design flaw. Here's why. I use them in bed at night. I'm wired by ethernet as I don't want the EMF's so only BlueTooth is on while watching YouTubes. As I'm falling to sleep I just want to take off and leave them nearby. I turn on airport mode to conserve iPhone battery. When you do that Powerbeats battery will drain out. I did a number of tests. Last night beats where at 33% charged. When I woke up they were 8%. Used them for another 15 minutes before they died. If you take them to work you have to drag your case with you or they will drain out.

    Mic quality is just ok. Callers say it sounds like my hand is covered over the mic. Lots of bass. Picks up lots of background noise when I'm at my kids school. Callers hear kids loudly in background. My extendable boom bluetooth headset works better. So now I drag both along with me. With the beats in my pocket or jacket (case is too big to drag along) beats battles it out with this other headset. Constantly trying to be the active Bluetooth. Because you can't turn off the beats!

    Returning them to Apple.

    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.

    Returning to Apple

    • Written by Dwight S from SAN FRANCISCO

    Was so excited when I learned about these and couldn't wait to order and received. The good, the fit is nice and I like not having a leash. BUT and this is a huge BUT....the sound quality is bad and gets worse when the volume is turned fully up. You have to have the volume more than 75% before you can really hear anything. Additionally, compared to the Powerbeats 3, there is absolutely no base. I will stay with the wired Powerbeats 3. While the Pro has some great features, I buy for sound quality. There is none with the Pro.

    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

    Sound Quality is subpar

    • Written by ROBERT K from Sylmar

    I am getting ready to return these, I love the concept. They're intended for people with an active lifestyle, like me. They're sweat resistant and most importantly they won't fall out of my ears.

    Now to the not so good and perhaps the most important, the sound quality is not what I expected in a pair of earbuds for $250 dollars. The Bass is completely absent from these, seriously. Beats have a pretty good reputation and that's the reason I made the decision to buy these.
    In fairness, there is a good separation of sounds but there is no Bass whatsoever or hardly any.

    Lower your expectations and do not waste your time by buying these, if you like to hear Bass in your music these are not for you.

    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...

    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!!

    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!!!
