    Great Buy

    Not disappointed. These fit my small ears well. Comes with different adjustments for the inside of the ear. Only thing that I’ve found that stays in my ear while exercising and doesn’t feel like it’s heavy.

    great product

    I use them when running and when working in the office. They’re great for blocking out noises. They stay in perfectly when running. The battery life lasts all day. They’re easy to use and to pair with my phone. Phone calls sound great and no one ever says they can’t hear me. I would recommend these headphones to anyone.

    I use these everyday

    I’ve now had these for 6 months, and they are such a great product and worth the price. I use these everyday and they really are the best. Running, walking, meditating, making calls, they work for everything. Sounds is fantastic. They fit my ear really well, which many other headphones don’t. They switch between my iPad and iPhone so easily. I really love them. Very happy.

    Lasts a long time

    I’ve had these headphones since December of 2019 and they still work great! The best ones I’ve ever had and of my current ones kick the bucket soon, I’d order these again! Highly recommend

    Great audio, the microphone is okay.

    Has great sound from music and never falls out your ear no matter what task you’re doing. Although, I’ve had multiple calls where my audio from the microphone is pretty muffled. Other than this they’re perfect.

    A short review, if you’re trying to decide on buying this…

    I’ve been a music junkie for decades and have had many headphones/earbuds.I’d give these a “4 1/2 stars out of five”On the good side:1) I use Tidal with Boom on my iPhone and I have over 200 GB of music on my phone. I had to tweak the sound settings on the Boom equalizer to get sound setting I want. Out of the box, I’d say the sound quality is good but not necessarily exceptional. But if you have an equalizer, odds are higher you’ll be satisfied.2) I’ve found that the battery life is indeed about 9 hours and the charging time is about what they advertise.3) As for the fit: these are not going to fall out or slip (unless someone walks up to you and physically tries to pull them out). The fit is perfect. (See my notes further down for the “comfort”)4) I’ve rarely had problems pairing. I’ve used these nearly every day for a year and a half and have rarely had pairing issues with the iPhone. I can’t speak for Android, as I don’t use it.OK, the “not so good” side:1) The charging case does not support wireless charging.2) The charging case is a tad large (in fairness, these buds are larger, hence the better battery life). You “can” put it in your pockets (pants) but you’ll notice it.3) OK, on the comfort: the human ear isn’t designed to have something stuck into it for hours at a time without feeling the pressure. Yes, there are some buds that fit in a way that you won’t feel the pressure, though I have to wonder what the downside is, as far as secure fit and seal.Having said that, if I have these in my ears for more than 90 minutes, I sometimes need to take them out for a few minutes, just to let my ears “breathe”.Overall, give this 4.5 stars out of 5. The three things I mentioned are not “deal breakers” for me, but they might be if you are looking for something that will feel comfortable for hours. As much as I love these (and I do love them), I do need to pull them out for a few minutes.Also, there is no ANC. Yes, there’s “noise reduction” but not cancellation. I’m mainly in the suburbs and really don’t have the need for ANC. However, it’s always a personal choice, and if you spend a great deal of time in a noisy city/transportation system, you might want to look at the newest Bose.So – these are not perfect. but they are very good and I’m happy with them. I love the battery life, the secure fit, and overall sound quality (after some tweaking). I listen to tons of jazz and classical and 70’s rock and am happy with these.I had a few wireless buds before these, and was always wondering if “the grass is greener” with another set. I have to be honest, after buying these, my interest in finding better ones down the road is much lower.Most reviews I’ve read are positive on this product. Yes, a few negative ones, but mostly positive. I bought these when they were a bit pricier, and even though they’ve dropped the price a bit, I’m not angry – I really like them a lot.

    Beat earbuds for exercise

    Such great earbuds! I own a lot of different styles (apple, bose, ect.) and these are the best bang for your buck on bass and battery life. I also like how well they stay put in your ear for a ride.

    Updated post.

    I bought these because the other B brand kept falling out. First thing out of the box no volume control. So far followed all the reset options online. Nothing. Can only control from phone. Not the control I was looking for.Phone is updated with latest and greatest as directed. Nothing.It’s only been a couple weeks I’ve put them away because they sound good I’ll keep trying. Otherwise they’ll have to go back.Updates. Got them to work. Finally, just a pain and didn’t want to return. Left one was a little uncomfortable at first wearing most of the day. But moved here and there and it was ok.They’ve started to settle in.

    Can’t believe it’s been four years

    Y’all can tell me if this is a good buy, but I’ve had these Beats earbuds now going on to 4 years. At first I thought, what is wrong with these I just got these and the battery seems to only last 2 hours, well I looked back at my history and realized I’ve actually had these for 4 years and I use them A LOT! I love to have them in while I’m working and listen to YouTube or TV or just talk to a friend so I can still work with my hands. I walk the dog and talk with my mom, or whatever it is, I’m multi-tasking but recently realized these Beats are dying on me. So I thought it was good that these have lasted me almost 4 years. Is that good? Electronics don’t seem to last as long as they used to. These are comfortable and have definitely stood up to a lot of use. Friends have told me that Apple iPods don’t last this long, so I think I’m going to get myself another pair of these Beats. I paid about $150 for these on a Black Friday special, so that’s $42/yr if you figure 3.5 years use. I think that’s pretty good, what do you guys think?

    Exceptional Sound Quality with Minor Stability Concerns

    The Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds have completely elevated my listening experience with their exceptional sound quality and advanced features. As an avid music lover, I can confidently say that these earbuds deliver rich, immersive sound that truly enhances every beat and melody.One of the standout features of these earbuds is the Apple H1 Headphone Chip, which ensures seamless connectivity and efficient power management. The Class 1 Bluetooth technology provides reliable wireless performance, allowing me to enjoy my favorite music with minimal interruptions.Additionally, the sweat-resistant design makes these earbuds perfect for workouts and outdoor activities. Whether I’m hitting the gym or going for a run, I can count on these earbuds to stay in place and deliver uninterrupted sound quality.However, the only issue I’ve encountered is with the stability of the earbuds during intense movement. While they fit snugly in my ears during most activities, I’ve noticed that they may become slightly dislodged if I’m moving around vigorously. This is a minor inconvenience for me, but it’s worth noting for those who engage in high-impact activities regularly.Overall, the Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds are an excellent choice for anyone seeking top-notch sound quality and wireless convenience. Despite the minor stability concern, these earbuds offer an unparalleled listening experience that is sure to impress even the most discerning audiophiles.

    Don’t buy these if you want low maintenance earbuds.

    I was looking for a replacement for my Plantronics earbuds which loop around the ear so they don’t fall off when I run etc. I really liked the Plantronics pair, but they were getting old and starting to have shorter usage time after each recharge. Unfortunately, Plantronics also seems to have stopped making them or bringing out new models since being acquired by Poly. I read some good reviews on Powerbeats Pro and it seemed like it would be a good replacement. I have had these for about 6 months now and here are my observations.Pros:1. Great sound – this gives you great overall sound. My previous earbuds were intentionally created to let outside noise in (for outside runners), so the quality of sound was never that great. With this, I do get great sound and depending on how snug you have them in your ears, they also block out some of the outside noises (but no true noise cancellation).2. Stays in place during the workout – This was a requirement for me and it works well.3. Connectivity with Apple devices – This was created as an Apple specific earbud. So it connects well with Apple devices and provides a lot of native functionality out of the box (just like AirPods) that you don’t get with third party earbuds.4. Quick charging – You can get enough charge in 10-15 minutes to work out for a good 2 hours.Cons:1. No on/off button – There is no way to turn the earbuds on or off. They turn as soon as you take them out of the charging case (more on this later) and turn off when you put them back. So you have to carry the charging case with you if you want to have them with you for a longer period and do not want them fully discharged between use.2. Doesn’t always turn on – I have had the issue when it doesn’t turn on automatically when I take them out of the charging pod. So I will have to put them back in and out again AND double check they are turned on when I take them out again. Also, you have to make sure they are on in case you are leaving the house and not planning to take the charging case with you because that is the only way to turn them on.3. Bulky charging case- These aren’t small (like AirPods or the Pixel ones) and not convenient to carry around when you are going out to work out.4. The right earbud seems to randomly turn on overnight and keeps discharging in the case – I researched this issue online and it seems to be a common problem for others who own them. Basically, you would leave them in the case to charge overnight (so they also turn off and disconnect from your phone). But if you check later, you might find that the right earbud is turned on and connected to your phone. Or most times, you take them out to go work out only to find that the right bud is at 10% or dying while the left earbud is at a 100%. So you are now stuck at home waiting for it to charge enough before you can leave.5. Buzzing noise on right earbud – This seems to happen sporadically too where you only hear a buzzing noise and no music. This also seems like a common issue from my research online. Based on advice from other users and Apple, I have disconnected and reconnected the earbuds and reset the earbuds several times to fix this issue. It has fixed the issue each time, but recurs after a few weeks.6. High maintenance – I don’t know about you, but I would like something that I can use when I need to and forget about other times, except to put them up for charging. With #4 and #5 above, this has become another thing I need to worry about on top of everything else. I have NEVER had to worry about this in the past!7. Support – I tried to find support for this from Amazon and they pointed me toward Apple since these are supposedly distributed and sold by them. All I wanted was a fix to the above issues OR get a replacement for my earbuds which are still under warranty. But they want me to go into an Apple authorized store OR send these in and wait for them to fix it. Seems very convenient when it is something you use every day, right?Overall, if you are ready to put up with what I mention in the cons, this is still a great pair of earbuds that give really great sound for someone who loves music.

    Excellent Wireless Earbuds – For About 2 Years

    I don’t know if Amazon will list how many times I’ve purchased these, but this will be my 3rd pair ( 5 if you include the ones that I had to return, 1 was missing the Powerbeats itself and the other had a manufacturing defect ) that I have purchased.The sound of the Powerbeats is great for wireless earbuds and the battery life of both charging case and earbuds are great out of the box! The ear hooks help keep the earbuds in and I don’t have to worry about losing one earbud due to it falling out, unlike the Apple Airpods that I keep finding on the ground at work… Having purchased this product a discounted price, I am very satisfied.The only problem I have with this product is the longevity of the batteries of the earbuds and charging case as time passes. After about the 2 year mark, the earbud that is used the most will last about 1-1.5 hours listening to audio and 15 minutes while on a voice call. The lithium ion batteries degrade too rapidly for a product at this price range.Overall, this is a great product, but I wish there was an battery alternative, because even just replacing the batteries at a local electronic repair store is about the same price as brand new Powerbeats at a discount ( approx $150 total to replace the earbud batteries ).

    Excellent Head Phones – noise cancelling without the big ear cups

    I really like these headphones. They have a degree of noise cancelling, compared to the white Apple ear pads. The sound quality is very good. Have done several walks along busy thoroughfares, and the sound is very clear. While they are a little challenging to set in your ears the first couple tries, they are very easy to put on once you get used to them. I have an older pair of Beats with the wire in the back. These PowerBeats Pro’s are much nicer and more convenient. Like the Apple headphones, these charge in their case, which is a plus. I also like the controls – mute, volume, answer. I will also note that I have well over 2000 hours on my old Beats, and they still work. So if these new, enhanced headphones give that kind of longevity, so much the better.

    Quality Problems

    These earbuds have been a disappointing experience. The product malfunctions, Apple’s support and repair are poor, and the earbuds themselves are nothing spectacular.First, periodically one bud or the other will completely discharge while it’s in the plugged-in charging case, and unless you use your cell phone to check the charge, you won’t know it was discharged until you’ve walked out the door and one bud just dies. Note that this is not merely a failure of the bud to recharge, but rather the bud actually fully DIScharges in the charging case. Apple does not acknowledge that this is a known problem, but I’ve read similar reports by others, so Apple probably does or certainly should know about it. I also expect this was not a fluke in my particular set because Apple eventually warranty-exchanged my set with a new one, and the same discharge problem happened with the replacement set.Second, Apple’s support and service was notably bad. The eventual warranty replacement I received was because of the complete failure of the buttons on one of the buds, and not because of the discharge issue. But I made two trips to the Apple Store, and the buds were twice sent back from the Repair center without being repaired. A supervisor at the Apple store could offer no more than to send them to the worthless repair center a third time (an offer I declined). It is only because of a competent and sympathetic supervisor I reached on the phone that a warranty replacement was issued.Third, I bought these over-the-ear buds because regular buds pop out of my ears. I’m supposing it’s because my ear canals are smaller than usual. These buds are comfortable, and the ear hooks do their job pretty well, but no matter which rubber eartip I use, the buds do not seat well and so the sound is tinny. Unlike Shure Aonic 215 over-the-ear buds, these do not come with an equalizer app, but you can get music apps that do have a built-in equalizer. These also are rated only IPX4 which should mean they will not fail due to ingress of perspiration, but IPX6 would certainly be more assuring and is available in some comparable products. Note also that this product does not have active noise reduction.On the plus side, the buttons on both buds are matched, so you can use either bud for pausing, skipping, increasing or decreasing the volume, and the plus and minus volume controls are separate from the play/pause button. (The Shure Aonic buds do give you more flexibility, since you can program the buttons, but the Shure have only one button on each bud so you might mean to increase the volume and find you skipped forward instead.)Overall these are acceptable and depending on your needs, these might be as good as you’ll find. If I had not reached a competent and responsible supervisor, I might have deducted a star, but otherwise three stars is probably about right considering the malfunctions and the degree of hassle getting support.

    I use them every day

    Real ones know that the true reviews are in the 4-star section…I use these for the gym and for work. I really prefer these over airpods because they wrap around your ear so they don’t fall out. They have gotten really sweaty and still work great. I used them for work meetings as well and have done just fine. My only gripe… I was constantly switching my bluetooth connection between my personal phone, work laptop, and work cellphone, and there were times that it would get really buggy and I would have to completely forget and re-pair my headphones to get them to work again. I have since switched jobs so I do not experience this anymore, but it will still be buggy with Spotify, saying they are connected when they really aren’t. Overall, still really happy with these and would buy again!

    After a shaky start…

    And the nice boy at product support, we got these things working. I’ve only had them a day so will likely update my stars.I’m an older gal and only newly familiar to this technology that I know has been around awhile, yet not foreverI mainly like to listen to music and my audiobooks. I’ve used some cheap versions to test these things out. And love the ability to listen to books while doing other things. I followed the directions and they all connected and usable without a hitch.Then these things!The first time I’ve ever felt the need to call customer support. They were great. I did everything they instructed me to do. And my new head bud thingies work perfectly! If they continue to do so I’ll add back the star.

    Amazing Wireless Earbuds

    These are really amazing wireless earbuds. I’m gonna do pros and cons along with some other thoughts about this product. This review is written 4 months after using this product.Pros:1. Battery life. The battery life is amazing. I never had these die on me except when I play video games all night. They also have fast charging which is very useful if you need to charge them real quick.2. Fit. The fit is really perfect. They feel comfortable and they stay in my ears perfectly. I exercise a lot and these earbuds always stay in my ears when I’m at the gym and when I’m running. If you are looking for some workout earbuds, then these will give you reliable and beautiful performance.3. Sound quality. The sound quality is amazing. Nice, clear and crisp.4. The Apple features. The extra features that the Powerbeats have when using with apple devices are nice but don’t let those features discourage you android users from buying the Powerbeats. The features aren’t important enough for you to decide not to buy them (Not gonna list out the features in order to make this review shorter)5. Range. The range is amazing. I can be listening to music on my phone and leave my phone in my room and walk anywhere in the house and still be able to listen to the music. The music starts cutting out depending on the amount of objects blocking the signal.6. Ability to wear with glasses. I can wear these with my glasses with no problem at all. I can take my glasses on and off and have no trouble.7. Good microphone. I use these earbuds for phone calls and video calls and the person can hear me pretty good. I can hear them perfectly fine. My brother tells me that I sound muffled but he can still hear me good.Cons:1. Pain. After wearing them for a couple of hours, I start to feel slight discomfort. This only happens after many hours so it isn’t something i’m complaining about. Just felt like I should mention it so everyone is aware. The pain that is the problem is the major pain that comes after weeks of regular use. I’m not sure what is happening but it’s like the Powerbeats is making the skin inside my ear peel off. I think this is happening because they are too tight in my ears. This has happened I believe 3 times and the goes away after I left my ears heal. As i’m writing this review, I am experiencing the major pain and I adjusted the left earhook so it’s not as tight in my ear as before (Problem is currently only in my left ear). I’m not sure if I’m the only one who experiences this but if you can deal with this then don’t let that discourage you from buying the Powerbeats (It isn’t that big of a problem for me).2. Bluetooth connection on Windows 10 computers. I’m not sure if this also happens on other versions of Windows and android devices but sometimes there would randomly be a 1-2 second cut in the sound about every two minutes. This doesn’t happen at all on my iPhone. I would also experience random disconnections on my laptop. Another thing about the connection is that it is weaker on my laptop than on my phone. Not sure why.3. Bulky case. This doesn’t matter to me at all because I usually have a bag that I carry with me when I go to places that I can slip the case into. I’m just mentioning it so people can be aware. You can put it in your pocket if you want but it will look weird because there will be a giant bulge in your pants.That’s it about the pros and cons. Now it’s time to talk about the problems I had with the Powerbeats. I’m having flashbacks of the problems I encountered while typing this part of the review. Problem 1. This only happened once but I will still talk about it. I was connecting the Powerbeats to my iPhone and forgetting them in the bluetooth settings because I was enjoying the animation that pops up when you pair them with your iPhone. Then all of a sudden they would not pair again. Man I thought they were already broken and it was the day I got them. I thought my $200 dollars went down the drain. But luckily I managed to get them to pair again after a long time of research and trying different things. What fixed the problem was charging the case because apparently since it was at I believe 30 something percent, it couldn’t pair. Problem 2. This was the worst problem. I’ve had this problem happen twice in the last month and a half. One of the earbuds would not pair and sound would only come out of the earbud that was paired. I had to switch back to my other pair of wireless earbuds that I previously had until I figured out how to solve this problem. It took days of extensive research and multiple solution attempts before I finally managed to fix the problem. I was about to return them but luckily I solved the problem before I did.Final thoughts: Despite the cons and problems I encountered, I would still recommend these earbuds to anyone. If you encounter any of the problems I did, I hope you can easily solve them and if you don’t, you can reply to my comment and ask me for my solution. Hopefully Amazon has a feature where you get notifications when someone replies to your review. If you read this whole thing, thank you and I appreciate it. If you didn’t then thanks for taking a look at it.Update: I no longer experience the major pain in my ears and the skin peeling off after I adjusted the earhooks to get the right fit (Update written on 8/18/21).

    After 3 years…

    I bought these back in 2020, and have been using them ever since. It’s been about a year, but the microphone has degraded and is highly inefficient. It’s amazingly convenient that if you’re listening to music, or just have these in your ear, it’ll pause when you receive a call. You’re then able to press the button to answer. Thing is, the person I’m speaking to would say that I sound muffled and very far away. I’d say in the initial two years that I’ve had these they’ve worked flawlessly. Now I’d have to disconnect from Bluetooth and answer a call as you normally would. It’s very annoying to do when you expect that to be a function of these.Also, when charging the headphones in the case, the nodes on the headphones (or on the case) have degraded to the point where I’d have to keep them pushed down for the connection to be made. It’s a bit frustrating when I forget to do so only to find that one ear has lost power when I thought it was charging the entire time.Otherwise, because they wrap around your ear I’ve NEVER feared them falling out. It hasn’t even been close to coming out when going for a run or going to the gym. They can be cumbersome if you have long hair that covers your ears, but you’ll get use to pushing your hair back to fit them in. I’ve had long hair, and dreads, so trust that that becomes less of an issue as time goes on.Otherwise these perform quite well as headphones on the go. For the bells and whistles of noise cancellation, “aware mode” (being able to hear what’s around you), and top notch sound quality, I leave that to around the ear headphones. It’s of little significance to me with these little things.**EDIT**So, while both headphones are in, the left ears power gets depleted much faster than the left. When checking the power it still reads at least 50%, the right ear being 80%. It’ll then require another charge before working again. So……there’s that too…

    Almost perfect headphones.

    I have had my Powerbeats Pro for about a week now and after a bit of a rocky start and an adjustment period, I find them to be almost perfect headphones. When I first put them on, I was wildly disappointed. They were uncomfortable and sounded tinny with no bass at all. I genuinely believed I would be returning them and getting second gen Air Pods instead. But, given how excited I was for the Powerebeats Pro to come out and the cost, I decided to put in a little effort and give them a chance. It wasn’t until about 3 or 4 days in that I decided to keep them.So, if you are like me and think your new Powerbeats Pro sound like garbage when you first put them on and you wonder if all the positive reviewers are high, experiment with all the tips before dismissing the headphones as crap. In-ear buds need a good seal to sound good. I have freakishly small ears so I always start with the smallest tip available when trying out new headphones which usually works for me. Not this time. It sounded awful and I was briefly outraged that I had paid $250 for garbage. It was counter-intuitive, but I finally tried the biggest tips instead which gave me a good seal and let me wear the headphones without having to go as deep into my ears which made them more comfortable too. Once I found the right fit with a good seal, I discovered that yes, in fact, these things do actually have some nice ear-thumping bass. I think the bass is better than original Air Pods but also not overwhelming as Beats products have a reputation for being. It’s satisfyingly skull shaking without being distorted and is balanced out nicely by clear highs. I’m not an audiophile by any means, but I won’t listen to any old crap either. I like a little bass and good clarity and the Powerbeats Pro deliver.My biggest issue with these is comfort. As I mentioned, I have freakishly small ears and while I have been using Air Pods for a couple years, I was doing so with discomfort. I put up with a little paind because of the convenience of function. I love the automatic connection, the ability to use one bud at a time and charging on the go in the case. So, when I first read about the Powerbeats Pro, I was expecting something that would have the convenience of Air Pods with better comfort and something that wouldn’t fall out of my ears all the time. Generally, I do okay with headphones that have different sizes of silicone tips so I was expecting the Powerbeats Pro to be a comfort upgrade. Initially, they actually hurt my ears more than Air Pods, especially my right ear. I fully blame this on my freakishly small ears. I’m one of those people who often finds “one size fits all” to be laughably ridiculous. Again, I was determined to love these things so I tinkered a bit to find an acceptable level of discomfort. The largest tip allows me to get a good seal without having to put them in so deep, relieving some pressure and cutting down on pain. When I first tried them, I could only last about 20 minutes before the pain forced me to take them out. After adjusting to find a good angle and replacing the silicone tips with Comply Sport tips, I’m a lot more comfortable and can last 2 or 3 hours before I feel discomfort. Even then, I would call it discomfort and not outright pain. It’s discomfort I can live with and not any worse than what I experience with Air Pods. Also, my discomfort is only in my right ear instead of both like I get with Air Pods. Since I go with one bud a lot of the time, I’ll just use the left one. No biggie. I can’t blame the manufacturer for my tiny ears which is why I’m not taking away a star.On the plus side, the fit is very secure. I have worked out in them several times and they don’t budge. I never could work out in Air Pods because they fell out all the time. I can also wear these while laying down which I couldn’t do in Air Pods without them falling out periodically. Also, the connection is great. Original Air Pods used to randomly lose connection or not connect when they were supposed to. The chip upgrade in the Powerbeats Pro seems to have resolved this little annoyance. They connect faster and after a week, I haven’t experienced a drop or glitch once.The Powerbeats Pro do come with a tradeoff when it comes to the size of the case. If you are used to carrying around Air Pods in your pocket in their tiny case, forget about it with Powerbeats Pro. The case is significantly larger. It goes in a bag or purse without taking up a ton of room but it’s too big to fit comfortably in a pocket. The extra battery life for Powerbeats is nice though. I frequently use one bud at a time and used to drain an Air Pod and have to switch ears regularly. I’m using the Powerbeats Pro the same way and haven’t drained a bud yet. I’m okay with the bigger case since the better battery life makes me feel secure about leaving the case at home when I need to go bagless.So in summary, these are the best sounding buds I have used. They are super convenient, easy to connect and won’t fall out of your ears. If you have normal human sized ears, they will probably be comfortable and the battery life is great. You have to deal with a bigger case but the positive improvements over Air Pods make the size trade-off worth it. If you don’t hear the bass, try different tips and twist them around a bit before you give up. Hopefully you won’t have to work as hard at it as I did to find your happy place with Powerbeats Pro but the effort has been worth it. These are really great headphones and worth the price.

    Get these while you can.

    I purchased the Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds November of 2022, it’s July of 2023 right now and I am extremely happy with this purchase. It is rumored that there will be a new model coming out soon, which may be why the price of this model is currently on sale. I would get them at the price they are while you can!There are a few possible issues with these earbuds and if I could give them 4.5 or 4.75 I would, but the pros certainly outweigh the cons – perceived or real.Pros 1st:1. Sound quality. These are so much better than the bargain earbuds that I have always used that it’s not even comparable. There is a very clear and crisp sound. On an airplane or in a crowded room, you can turn the volume up as high as you want and there’s no distortion in the sound.2. Noise Cancelation. While not comparable to over the ear headphones for in-ear buds I can’t imagine that you would get much better.3. Wrap Around feature. When I was deciding between the Powerbeats Pro and the Apple AirPods pro. It was the wrap around feature that was the tie-breaker. I have used these earbuds in a plane, in the gym, on a hiking trail, and various other places and I have never had them fall out of my ear – which is the point. I have helped others look for their in-ear buds on planes and in the gym and I didn’t want that to be me.3. Battery life and charging time. I use these earbuds almost every single day. The battery has never been an issue. Some might consider that fact that the beats use the lighting cable instead of USB-C, but for me that has been a plus. I can charge the beats case in my truck with my iPhone charger if it ever gets to it. The old problem of the buds not sitting in the case correctly and thus burning through the charge on the case after you take off the charger has been resolved. Or at least it has never one time been a problem for me.4. Additional pros. The seamless connection to your Apple devices and the range after connection are worthy mentions. The built-in microphone provides clear audio that cancels out much of the background noise. And the sweat and water-resistant quality makes them perfect for workouts or outdoor activities.Cons:1. The “Find My” feature on iPhone is not very helpful for the Powerbeats. If they are paired you can find them if they are laying around the house somewhere, but I don’t think it would be helpful at all if you leave them behind somewhere. And you cannot see them separately, you see both the left and right side together. This is certainly one area where AirPods would have the advantage.2. The size of the case. Compared to most earbuds this case is HUGE. Most people will not want to stick them in their pocket as you can with most others. I carry them in my backpack most of the time because of the size.3. The size of the ear tips. I have tried every set that comes with the beats and I’m down to the smallest size. They fit me perfectly but I do not have the smallest ear canals.One other thing to note: These work just fine with my glasses but the arms on my glasses are straight. If you have over the ear arms, it might be more of a problem.These earbuds are perfect for anyone looking for high-quality wireless earbuds that can keep up with their active lifestyle.

    Glad I waited for the Powerbeats Pro!

    I want to preface this before I say anything about these headphones: I primarily use headphones for music and podcasts while I am cycling, running, or sitting at my desk at work. I use Spotify for music, and I am not an audiophile. I am not comparing these to a pair of Sennheisers with a lossless audio format as my source. I also am using an iPhone 7+ and iPad Air 2 for my devices in this review.I have been waiting on a getting a pair of truly wireless headphones because none seemed to be worth it to me. The battery life is usually dismal for obvious reasons, and most had complaints of cutouts between the earbuds. Some friends of mine have Air Pods and they all said they didn’t have cutout issues and battery life was pretty good. But, I just didn’t like the design of the Air Pods and they sounded “hollow” to me. But I get their appeal.I am so glad I waited for the Powerbeats Pro (PBP)! I was using the Jaybird X3 before I got these, and I think the sound is on par with them. One of my main annoyances with the X3’s was that the cord would tug once sweat built up on my neck while exercising, and I couldn’t use the cable shortener they provide because of the way my helmet is. I went for a bike ride yesterday with the PBP’s, and they were fantastic! It was a little windy, so I did get a little wind noise. I am hoping Comply makes some tips for these because I think that would make the noise isolation much better. My ride was around 2 hours and I still had 80% left on the PBP battery.Cons:1. The case: it’s actually smaller than I thought, but would still be uncomfortable in a pocket. I think the 9 hour battery life on the actual headphones make this acceptable, but this may be deal breaker for some.2. Ear fatigue: I didn’t have any fatigue during my ride, but my ears were definitely a little sensitive where the hook was resting after I took the headphones off. I’m hoping this gets better as I wear them.3. Like the Air Pods, the PBP’s can only be connected to one device at a time. They will pair to all Apple devices on your iCloud account, but if you want to switch between devices, you have to go into your Bluetooth settings and select them. On Android you will need to pair each device separately.4. I usually listen to a podcast when I go to sleep. These are not comfortable to lay on if you are side sleeper like I am. Also, the button the headphones will get pushed by the pillow. The button doesn’t require much force, which is great because your not shoving the headphones into your ear. Not a huge deal, but just thought I would mention it.Pros:1. Great sound for Truly wireless, I think.2. Great fit for exercise.3. Pretty good sound isolation, but like I said, I am hoping Comply makes some tips for these.4. Actual headphones are smaller than I thought they would be, and they don’t look weird on you when you are just walking down the street.Bottom line, if you use an iOS device and use headphones while exercising, I can’t recommend these enough! In my opinion, the $250 price tag is worth it given where other truly wireless headphones are priced.

    The only pair of wireless headphones that have ever fit properly!

    I have purchased Apple AirPods, Apple AirPod Pros, Galaxy Buds (2nd edition), AND some other cheaper brands. No matter what, they would fall out of my ears. I have very tiny ears as an adult, and I typically change the tip of my earbuds to the smallest possible size. That is not the case with these buds. Since there is the wrap around the ear design, it is a bit uncomfortable at first when you open the box and you try them on for the first few weeks. Once you’re accustomed to the wrap around design on the ear, they’re a dream. I have the same size bud tip on them that the headphones came with, and I have not changed the tips since I received the headphones. Absolutely excellent quality audio, it connects to my phone and laptop seamlessly, and I am impressed that they NEVER fall out. My AirPod Pros would constantly disconnect and they were spotty, at best. Although I loved the immersive experience of the Pros, they would fall out so often I could barely enjoy the feature. Unfortunately, these headphones DO NOT have a noise cancelling feature, but they don’t claim to have that feature from the get-go. Amazing headphones overall, just get past that initial awkward phase!

    Running Earphone Showdown – These were my winner

    EDIT: 4 months inThe sound quality of these headphones are still great and I’m still really pleased with these being my final choice. That being said, I’m dropping it from 5 stars to 4 because the connectivity issues and power issues are driving me insane. And the fact that these are premium earbuds while still having these issues is just inane. Also, I have an android, so I’m not sure if these issues exist with Apple users or not (I’m guessing at least the second issue does, if not both).First: when you put the earbuds back in the case, you have to really work at finangling them inside the case to make sure they actually register as being put away and auto disconnect from the phone. This isn’t the biggest issue, it’s just maybe a 30 second annoyance. But 30 second annoyance every single time you put them away gets to be more and more annoying.Second: The earbuds have been losing charge inside the case. This didn’t ever happen before until I recently went on a trip and flew somewhere. The earbuds were fully charged before takeoff, and completely dead at landing. I have no idea why this happened, but I assumed it was a fluke. It happened again on the way back. Since then, the earbuds have been draining to 0% in the case without me using them. I’m not sure if this is causation or even correlation, or just pure terrible coincidence. But it is infuriating. I’m showing up to workouts and can’t use them because they’re dead. It’s also worth noting that I did the software update around the same time as the travel, so it could be because of that software update rather than something weird about flying (which probably makes more sense).Either way, it’s absolutely infuriating.Again, sound quality is still there, but the stars will continue to drop if I can’t get a fix at least for this second issue.Original Review:I was looking for new earphones specifically for fitness with the main usage test being running. I wanted to test across several price points to see which would be most worth the money. I’ve only had cheap running earphones before (though I have nicer cans that I use to listen with in other scenarios and some nice wired in ears for when I perform live). I don’t really care about noise cancelling. My primary criteria were about comfort (and if it can stay in my ear while running), and the sound quality vs price (how much marginal return do I get per dollar). I ended up picking a premium pair because you can really notice how much more digital/fake the audio sounds when testing side by side, the lower down in price you go.(note: a lot of what I put were just notes I was jotting down while testing them. I try to do a more succinct summary in the first line of each option, and then it gets more rambly/random after that)In the running:Sony WF-1000XM4 $189.00 | Beats Fit Pro – $179 | Power Beats Pro – $179 | Jabra Elite 4 Active – $89 | JBL Endurance Peak 3 – $89.95 | Soundcore Sport X10 – $69.99 | JLab JBuds Air Sport – $69.88 | Golrex $29.99 | BMani T16 $39.99Here are my thoughts:Power Beats Pro – $179 (149) – My winner overallSounds great. It is not the best sound I’ve heard in earphones, but doesn’t seem to lack anything. Has good thumpy bass, presence in the mids, and good clarity up high. Nothing to complain about the sound.Big/heavy case (doesn’t matter that much, but I do take these on big hikes so smaller case would have been nicer)I think ultimately will be more comfortable for long use than the Fit pro. The stock medium tips fit fine, unlike the fit pro for some reason.Sounds essentially the exact same as the fit pro which makes senseBeats Fit Pro – $179I wanted this to be my favorite. It’s light, small, has fun color options, and sounds great. But it ultimately was just not comfortable enough to leave in my ears for longer than 45 minutes. This would vary from person to person obviously.Pretty comfortable, but had to switch to the small eartips (only earbuds I had to switch from the medium/stock tips). Stays in the ears well, but I think that the whole thing being in there will get uncomfortable pushing my ears after a while. Really little case which is nice.Really great clarity, feels perfectCan’t find any eq in the app, but I didn’t feel the need to adjust any eq settings either, every band/frequency was very satisfying, so that’s kind of nice not having to set it myselfSony WF-1000XM4 $189.00I believe this has a slightly fuller sound quality to it. Can’t really pinpoint how or why, but seems to be the most superior sound quality of all of them. I thought it might be better bass but that’s not it. I can’t pick a part any individual component that seem superior, it just has an overall fuller soundThere just doesn’t seem to be any way that these are going to stay in during a run. Would be great for any non-exercise application, but just wasn’t what I was looking for. I would choose these if I were looking for just walk around town kind of earbuds.Jabra Elite 4 Active – $89Great clarity and bass out of the box. I am the kind of guy who can only really tell sound differences when a/b testing it. If I only listened to these earbuds, I would have been fully satisfied with the sound quality, the comfort, and the security. It’s only because I tested it next to the premium models above that I decided not to go with this. But if this is your budget range, these are definitely the winners.Excessively comfortable, like the most comfortable of any of the earbuds (premiums included), and feel like they will stay in on a run even though they don’t have any sort of little hook like the soundcore or powerbeats, or over ear hook like the others. Definitely the best ergonomics. Would take this over the JBL endurance or any other in the sub $150 price range.Soundcore Sport X10 – $69.99more satisfying for non edm music than the other options down below. Better separation for instruments and vocals.Compared against JLabs with blue tips in, the bass is more comparable. Soundcore keeps more clarity than on higher end (albeit a little tinny sounding), than JLabsBass is definitely much better than JLabs. It does feel a bit more muddy because of the heavier bass, there may have been better vocal clarity with JLabsEverything else seems fineANC is decentsmall profile is light, really comfortable and stays in the earsJLab JBuds Air Sport – $69.88bigger profile, slightly less comfortable than the Soundcore. Bass is lacking out of the box. There’s better mid and high clarity on these than the soundcore.Bass improves a noticeable amount by switching to blue tips, but you lose some clarity higher upbass feels punchier in edm in these than x10These are definitely more satisfying for thumpy edm music than the x10The sound quality just feels lacking in depth, no matter which eq setting you choose.Has a connected usb charger on the case as a charger (rather than a separate chord to plug into both charger and power), which I don’t think I likeJBL Endurance Peak 3 – $89.95Clear vocals and instruments in mids and highs. Slightly more clear and crisp than the soundcoreNice bass as well, (slightly worse bass than soundcore), less satisfying than the sound core on lyrical song but actually has punchier bass on edmPlenty loud (other reviews saying they don’t get loud)The equalizer app gives lots of controlThis bass is also superior once equalized. So both bass and instrumental/vocals have more clarity. After messing with eq, is better than soundcore.This sounded perfectly fine until compared with higher tier, then when a/b compared it sounded a bit more fake, a bit more digital, definitely enough to notice a differenceGolrex $29.99It is okay sound, probably the best in this price range. If you just want something cheap that will give you sound, these are fine. If you care about sound quality even a little bit, it’s worth it to get a better headset.There is no clarity at any frequency, just a decent amount of noise.Has an attempted cheap premium look with led interfaces.BMani T16 $39.99Sounds way below average, worse than the golrex.Really similar packaging and look to the golrex, so they’re either just copying each other or made by the same people

    This is probably the best you can get if you have mutant-sized ears like me

    As a quick backstory, I have a huge head. I have never had a hat that fits nor in-ear earbuds. I had been using Skullcandy earbuds because they were small enough that I could kind of just jam them into the ear canal then push on them every few minutes to keep them in. I tried Airpods, about every skullcandy variant on the market, offbrand, and more. I am happy to say that the search is over!Everyone knows about the quality of the sound that Beats have. They are well known for it and since I used to own a pair of over-ear headphones by Beats I can comfortably say the sound hasn’t really changed. The build quality is impressive and no material in the box feels tacky or cheap. Although the new iPhones are using USB-C for their cable which will make this obsolete for new phones, I do appreciate that I can use the same lightning cable for my iPhone 13 that I use to charge the docking holder thingy. One less cable I need to carry around.The fit is really good. Astoundingly good. I have always preferred over-ear loops to hold buds in because I can feel a bit more secure in wearing them and it helps to keep the buds centered. In addition to having large ears and a large head, I was also given large ear canals which constantly would spit out my previous skullcandy buds over time and make me paranoid that they were going to disappear. These still leave a bit to be desired for fit as they are just slightly too small for my ears. This all being said, I am a mutant with big ears and 99.99% of the population are going to find these fit like a glove.Finally, the smaller features of the buds really helps push them over the edge. Built-in detectors on the buds detect if you are taking them off and automatically pause the music/video you are watching. This is especially crucial for a person like me who regularly has to put them on then take them off when I get accosted by coworkers on a minute-by-minute basis. The volume controls are in a good spot and I appreciate that they are an actual button instead of some of the finicky touch controls that other companies use. Finally, I find the carrying case to be extremely bulky, but with the battery life I have experienced with these buds I am not at all going to complain about it. Manufacturer spec states 9 hours in ear with the charge in the case providing a total of 24 hours. They have to be going with the modest route! They have to be! I got 38 out of them on a work trip between Seattle and Dubai. I charged the case and the buds to the max before my flight than forgot to charge them while I was away. They died about 2 hours outside SeaTac on the return flight.Overall these are quality buds with good sound quality, great build, and a range of small stuff that eliminates the hassle normally encountered with bluetooth buds. If you get asked often, “is your hearing good with ears the size of an elephant?” than these buds are the one for you! If you are not shamed due to your large ears, they probably will work just as well for you too.

    Love that these stay put and sound great too!

    Regular earbuds just don’t stay in place for me. These solve the problem perfectly. I wear glasses and they are still comfortable. The sound is great and they hold a charge for a long time. I often only wear one at a time for safety so I can hear what’s happening in my surroundings when I walk the dogs and I like that they can hold a charge independently and I can choose the one that has the right charge for the length of my tasks just by checking my phone. They pair easily with my phone and don’t prevent my bluetooth car receiver from connecting. Found them on sale so was very pleased with the price.

    I didn’t know a product could be so poorly designed.

    This is a review for use with android and macbook proTLDR most glitchy product i’ve ever had in my life. Updates are few and far between and bring new glitches. Most common glitch is sound going out of sync between left and right resulting in delay, and feeling of echo in the audio: it’s infuriating and requires disconnect and reconnect: sometimes with waiting in between or having to repair from box which makes the big bulky charge box a must carry everywhere: can’t exactly go ona run with that thing.Imagine having to interrupt your sports routine 2-4 times to get these things working, does that make you want to work out more or less?Since i first bought them, they have been nothing but glitchy, and it took two months to have them replaced on apple care (because apple after sale service is a joke) so i made a glitch diary over the past few weeks to write this review.Android: many of these glitches are not android dependent but rather location/movement dependent, or where you put your phone dependent, or what your phone is touching dependent or next to what appliance you’re standing dependent and sometimes audio app dependent (switching apps resolves the glitch).Glitches are “seasonal” they come and go, though some are constant. But there’s always something new.-Worst and by most common glitch: the earbuds often go out of sync resulting in an echo (bc of the delay btw one ear and the other). This one is infuriating/maddening: happens everyday many times. Sometimes i just live with it because i don’t want to go through the motions of disconnecting/wait/reconnect but the sync keeps drifting and it gets jarring/disorienting after a while: like chinese drip torture.- powerbeats connect, sound still comes from phone speakers-“skipping sound effect” from the connection faltering-sometimes nonstop struggle to stay in sync, stay connected-Sounds cuts in and out repeatedly with random intervals (on… off…….. on…. off… on…….. off…)-put them in a box and close it only to realize they’re still connected and the sound is coming out of the box still, but sometimes the opposite problem occurs: i’d be listening from macbook speakers and they. randomly connect to the laptop and start playing from within the box, and pause playback. Must turn off bluetooth on device to recover sound from speakers.-sometimes resumes all audio app after you pause and play (eg pause podcast, hit play, youtube, podcasts, audible all start playing together at the same time)- Different buttons/functions cease to work, sometimes all buttons won’t respond (sound plays buttons unresponsive), sometimes just some buttons, just volume or play, or just one earbud.-Sometimes buttons work but no sound (can see the app play/pause on the screen)-Sometimes connects (as confirmed by connection sound and bluetooth menu on phone) but no sound and buttons unresponsive. Sometimes no sound though buttons can play/pause-lag between commands and response (btw hitting play and music playing, pause and music pausing)- often disconnects from phone after a call: when you hang up sound resumes from phone speakers-sometimes disconnects during call making me run back to phone to continue call on phone- sometimes one of the earbuds “forgets” its charged straight out of the box, putting it back in the charge box “reminds” it it’s actually full (goes from 0% to 100% immediately): imagine you put them on step out of the. house and realize one of the earbuds is acting dead, now you have to go back home, stick it in the huge box you don’t want to carry around and. then g et back to your run/bike/routine-rarely, one earbud “dies” and needs to be placed in charging box for a long while before it comes back to “life”-updates few and far between and bring new glitches- EVERYTIME I ride (bike) through specific intersections it “slices” the connection: audio goes out though the app continues to play and the connection is still established in the bluetooth menu.Recently (new “seasonal” glitches since last update ):-just doesn’t automatically connect when i open box and put them on, I have to manually connect them from the bluetooth menu, sometimes i have to repair them from the box.- one ear starts playing immediately, other earbud takes 6-9 seconds to connect, during which you’re standing there. waiting to see if it’s this glitch or the one where one of the earbuds thinks it’s empty and needs to be put back in the box to remember it’s full.-earbuds connect but they don’t make the connection sound so you don’t know if they’ve connected or not without playing something- entire volume range is on the bottom three increments of the volume bar, goes from no sound (one volume click up) 50% volume (one volume click up) 100% volume and all the rest of the range no matter how much you volume up/down, remains at 100% volume.Macbook pro-refuses to connect/reconnect to macbook pro, no idea why, requires a factory reset and re pairing-randomly switches to another device mid use (from phone to macbook pro or vice versa)Sound Quality: bass ok, HIGH TREBLE many podcasts sound like there’s a hissing in your ear when they pronounce the letter S. Overall sound is good but the hissing from the high trebble is annoying: one solution to this i found was to use biggest size rubber buds and shove them well into your ear: enhances bass and mitigates treble.Customer service: took nine days to ship them back to some facility to have them “looked at” decided they were fine within twenty minutes (i know this because they have a link to a tracker) and returned them to me (they had to overnight ship them when I blew a gasket at the store when i realized the confirmation email after nine days was just for their receipt of the product at the repair facility and not that they were done and ready for pickup: nine days, just to get from the store to the “repair” facility).Had to return twice more and both times same thing: they receive them, immediately decide nothing wrong with them, return them: spent the whole summer without the product i had bought SPECIFICALLY for that summer. In the end some “genius” i paris told me it was because they were labeling the problem as “permanent” as opposed to “intermittent” (permanent means it’s always there and so it should show right out of the box)Please comment if you’ve been having any of these problems.thanks100% would not recommend

    Exceptional Performance

    I recently purchased the Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds and I am extremely impressed with their performance. These earbuds are truly exceptional in every way and I would give them a 5 out of 5 star rating.Firstly, the sound quality of these earbuds is outstanding. The bass is deep and the highs are crisp, providing an overall clear and balanced sound. Additionally, the volume can be turned up quite loud without any distortion, which is perfect for those who like to listen to their music at high volumes. The earbuds also provide excellent noise isolation, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in your music.One of the most impressive features of these earbuds is their battery life. With up to 9 hours of listening time, these earbuds can easily last an entire day without needing to be charged. This is especially impressive considering the compact size of the earbuds. The charging case also provides an additional 24 hours of battery life, meaning you can go days without needing to charge the earbuds.The Beats Powerbeats Pro also feature the Apple H1 headphone chip, which provides a seamless connection to your Apple devices. The earbuds connect instantly and stay connected without any issues. The Class 1 Bluetooth technology also provides an excellent range, allowing you to move freely without any loss of connection.These earbuds are also sweat and water-resistant, making them perfect for workouts or outdoor activities. The earbuds have been designed to stay securely in your ears, even during the most intense workouts.Finally, the built-in microphone on these earbuds is excellent. The microphone provides clear audio and cancels out any background noise, ensuring that your voice is heard loud and clear on phone calls.Overall, I highly recommend the Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds. They are an exceptional product that provides outstanding sound quality, long battery life, seamless connectivity, and are sweat and water-resistant. These earbuds are perfect for anyone looking for high-quality wireless earbuds that can keep up with their active lifestyle.Here’s a comparison between the Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds and the Bose SoundSport Free Wireless EarbudsBeats Powerbeats Pro:• Price: $249.95• Connectivity: Class 1 Bluetooth• Battery Life: 9 hours (24 hours with case)• Charging Time: 5 minutes for 1.5 hours• Water Resistance: Sweat and water resistant (IPX4)• Microphone: Yes• Noise Cancellation: No• Audio Quality: Good• Design: Ear hooks for secure fit• Compatibility: Works with iOS and AndroidBose SoundSport Free:• Price: $199.00• Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0• Battery Life: 5 hours (10 hours with case)• Charging Time: 2 hours• Water Resistance: Sweat and water resistant (IPX4)• Microphone: Yes• Noise Cancellation: No• Audio Quality: Very good• Design: Ear hooks for secure fit• Compatibility: Works with iOS and AndroidBoth the Beats Powerbeats Pro and the Bose SoundSport Free are great wireless earbuds with some similar features such as sweat and water resistance, ear hooks for secure fit, and microphone. However, there are some differences in terms of connectivity, battery life, and price.The Beats Powerbeats Pro has Class 1 Bluetooth which provides a longer range and stronger connectivity compared to the Bose SoundSport Free’s Bluetooth 5.0. The Powerbeats Pro also has a longer battery life with 9 hours of listening time and 24 hours with the charging case compared to the Bose SoundSport Free’s 5 hours of listening time and 10 hours with the charging case.

Additionally, neither earbud has noise cancellation.Overall, both earbuds are great options depending on your needs and budget. If you want longer battery life and stronger connectivity, the Beats Powerbeats Pro may be the better choice, but if you’re looking for better value for your money and slightly better audio quality, the Bose SoundSport Free could be a good option.Here’s a comparison between the Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds and the Sony WF-1000XM4 Wireless Earbuds in a points form:Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds:• Price: $249.95 USD• Battery Life: Up to 9 hours• Charging Case Battery Life: Up to 24 hours• Water Resistance: Sweat and water resistant• Bluetooth Version: Class 1 Bluetooth 5.0• Noise Cancellation: No• Transparency Mode: Yes• Voice Assistant: Siri (iOS) / Google Assistant (Android)• Driver Size: 9mm• Weight: 20.3gSony WF-1000XM4 Wireless Earbuds:• Price: $279.99 USD• Battery Life: Up to 8 hours (with ANC on)• Charging Case Battery Life: Up to 24 hours• Water Resistance: IPX4 water resistance• Bluetooth Version: Bluetooth 5.2• Noise Cancellation: Yes, with advanced ANC technology• Transparency Mode: Yes• Voice Assistant: Google Assistant / Alexa• Driver Size: 6mm• Weight: 7.3gAs you can see, the Beats Powerbeats Pro have a longer battery life and are sweat and water-resistant, making them ideal for workouts and outdoor activities.

    These Buds Don’t Fall Out For No One!

    I purchased these after I got Apple Airpods Pro because those fell out of my ears after I leaned over to get something that fell in my car. I was very bummed about the Airpods and tried the various ear fittings, but found that it didn’t matter and bought them for running and working out at the gym. Upon ordering and receiving the Powerbeats Pro, I knew that they would be a great fit and was very impressed with the fit, the various sizes of buds (5 options) to find a great fit, and the battery life is amazing! Though they are not noise-canceling, I know that these will not fall out or off of my ears and will be great for running or jumping around at the gym. The downside to these, in my opinion, is that the level of sound has to be turned up quite high and makes me worried that I’m damaging my ears. I’ve checked this a few times to see if it’s my phone or Spotify (iPhone 12), but it’s not and I’m not sure if it’s a manufacturing thing. The battery lasts a very long time and I’ve driven for hours talking and never have the person on the other end complain of noise like my old headphones. I love it too because when someone calls, it automatically goes to my earbuds if they are in and they connect quickly. I would recommend these because they are Bluetooth, convenient, and don’t hurt to have them in. In the past, I’ve tried over-the-ear headphones, cordless or Bluetooth, and struggled with the fit and find that these are great. I hope this is helpful for you all!

    Best ear buds I ever had

    I have tried other, less expensive ear buds and had trouble having them stay in my ear when mowing the lawn or doing yard work . Music helps me complete tasks. Sweating cause ear buds to fall out and that interferes. These stay put for hours and sound great. Everything I was looking for. The cost was high however I’m feel worth it in the end

    small ears approved!!

    listen… I have the ears of a BABY. Like legit baby ears, nothing fits. I’ve had airpods, airpod pros, random off brand wireless earbuds, and have always end up going back to my beats headphones because nothing would stay on. I unfortunately had to retire my headphones for now since I got my ears pierced and don’t want to risk discomfort with pressure or them, but these earbuds fit perfectly!! I could wear them on hour long runs without them slipping out, only with mild discomfort after about an hour of wear. My other issue is that my headphones were pretty soundproof, but you can hear pretty much any noise with these on. Still great and worth the price if you ask me, considering no other earbuds fit me! Even shockz headphones were a bit off fitting.

    Secure and reliable

    I always buy PowerBeats because I need a headphone that wraps around my ear. I’ve had my current pair for 4 years now and they are still going strong. I use them every single day whether it be for a workout or while I’m at work. The battery life has dropped off a little, but other than that I have absolutely nothing bad to say about them. I will be buying another pair soon.

    Work Perfect

    I ordered these because I lost one of my ear pieces for the first one. The price was discounted so instead of buying one ear piece I rebought the whole set. This set is very sensitive to the touch so if you brush up against a scarf or coat it will hang up on whomever your talking too. My last pair was bought at Best Buy regular price and one ear piece worked to hang up calls and the other one didn’t of course I lost the one that worked. So I must say with this pair for the price I am very happy both ear pieces can hang up whomever I am talking too. Also, the sound works great!

    The Beats go on

    I specifically purchased these earbuds based on the reviews and Beats reputation. I’m overall pleased with the sound quality and the secure ear hook, which allows me to jog and bicycle without having to worry about the earbuds falling out. I haven’t had any issues with them in the past month of ownership and I would definitely recommend them.

    Must have

    The Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds have truly exceeded my expectations. The integration of the Apple H1 Headphone Chip ensures seamless connectivity with my devices. The Class 1 Bluetooth provides a reliable and extended range. With 9 hours of listening time, I rarely find myself needing to recharge during the day. The sweat-resistant design is perfect for workouts, and the secure fit ensures they stay in place. The built-in microphone delivers clear and crisp audio during calls. The sleek black design adds a touch of style. Overall, these earbuds are a stellar combination of performance, convenience, and comfort – a must-have for anyone looking for high-quality wireless audio.

    Great Earbuds, so-so charging case

    I have been using these earbuds for about a year now and I am very pleased with them. Great sound, comfortable fit and support. The only reason I won’t give it a 5 stars is the charging case. The earbuds sit very loosely in it and causes them not to properly charge. I often find one of them out of juice due to it moving in the charging case…. I always make sure they sit in the right position before closing the case but they will, somehow, slightly shift out of the charging pins causing the earbuds to be “connected” all the time….. A tighter case might help for future models. I still highly recommend them.

    Love them

    I purchased these for my wife. Her apple airpods kept falling out of her ears. The bears are comfortable enough for all day use. I only wish that they were noise cancelling. Overall, they sound very good.

    Love these headphones

    I use these headphones everyday. I even ran them through the washer and dryer and they still worked. That was like a week after I got them. I left the in my pocket and washed my jeans. I flipped out. But they were fine. Maybe a little cleaner. The only beefs I have are as follows. 1 I cant stand the recharging box. The headphones don’t lay right in the charger so they get charged unevenly. One side is 100% the other is 43%. Its annoying. Then I lose the charging box at least once a week. Why cant it all be one and not have the stupid charging box. The sounds quality is great too. You know how good apple sounds I don’t have to tell you.

    Great for those who can’t wear iPods easily for workouts

    Have been looking for earbuds with an over the ear hook to keep them in place during workouts, especially when on a treadmill. I have playlists with songs that have a tempo that matches my paces so I like a good bass. I have narrow ear canals and buds will never stay in unless I jam them into my ears and then they just hurt.

    Already loving it. I have small ears and earbuds always fall out. Using these perfectly with the size that came in the box. There are larger and smaller bud sizes in the box as well.

    Best Ear Buds

    Perfect gift for my son as he works outside and in many buildings where they come in handy. Perfect for Travel. Very safe comfortable and not likely to fall out the ear with the wraparound ear design. Love the navy blue color that you cannot get at an electronic store.

    Way better than airpods

    I LOVE these wireless headphones. AirPods hurt my ears and when I bend over then fall out. These are so comfortable. The sound is great, they hold a charge and I don’t have to worry about them falling out. My favorite wireless headphones by far!

    great for running

    they great for running with ear loops, and having the volume controls on the earbuds is a great feature as well and the controls being actual buttons i love instead of having to tap sides of the head phones

    Good running earbuds

    I bought these to replace AirPods as a running headphone. They came highly recommended by a friend and have lived up to the hype. I’ve run about 40 miles so far and have been pleased with the sound quality, fit and battery life.I’m giving this 4 stars because I ordered black and despite the packaging saying black, the headphones are blue.

    Pretty Good

    I’d rather have these then the apple ear buds for the gym and in general. The battery life is amazing and the sound is a little better…not much but it is better.

    Super Disappointed!!!! UPDATE

    I got these because I have funny ears and earbuds won’t stay in. I have the 2nd generation Air Pod pros and before that, I had the regular Air Pods (which fit my ears better).I got these because of the hook. While the small tips fit nicely, the hook is kind of uncomfortable.I went straight to Pandaora because the sound is better then Apple Music and there was so much….. space. It was lacking bass, it just got louder and not fuller. So I put my Air Pods in on the same track, and the difference was super obvious.Are these defective? There’s no way they were that wack!!! I’ll give it another try and update cause these couldn’t possibly be right!!!Got my second pair and I am happy to report they don’t sound anything like the last pair. Those were definitely defective!They don’t charge on my wireless charger that for my AirPod pros… I think these are just too large.

    Best headphones I’ve had

    I have been using them for a while and love them. They fit in my ears comfortably. I love that they have different types of things to put on the earbud.

    My favorite all time bestie.

    After years and no kidding a box of short life easily lost earbuds, these are my favorite. When I need to be alone with my needed entertainment I can get lost. If I’m needed call or I’m not listening.

    They stay put, but finicky charger

    I’ve owned this pair of Powerbeats for nearly 2 years. The most important thing for me is that these fit and stay securely in my ears no matter how much I’m sweating or running. I’m a loyalist because these are so comfortable and the sound quality is great. But, does anyone else fight with the charger?! It is a silly ordeal of delicately placing the ear pieces in the charging case and then moving them around ever so slightly to get a connection on the charging prongs. I want to be able to click them in place and be done, but the that never happens smoothly.

    Best purchase ever

    I love my Earbuds. I never liked the AirPods because they always fell and were not comfortable in my ears, but these are the best. The battery lasts long, I can work out with them, and they stay on! In the beginning, they can feel a little weird, but then you get used to it.

    Last longer than AirPods

    I like the way these hug around the ear lobes and they last all day at work a lot longer than those expensive AirPods I own. I do wish they were a little bit louder but they’re as good as AirPods to me and I use them and keep the AirPods as a backup but I haven’t had to use them.AirPods are easier to use but once you learn the basics button placement these are just fine. I’m happy with them.

    The best

    These are easily my favorite headphones! You can wear these running, working, lounging and not have to worry about them falling out. The base and sound quality of music and podcasts are amazing. They are sleek looking and comfortable at the same time. They are super easy to install and once you’ve done it there’s no need to do it again. They pair as soon as you open the case and put them in your ear, you can adjust the volume with the up and down buttons on the inner part of the ear phone and press the beats logo to end or pick up calls. I love the black based on the versatility with outfits. They are sweat and water resistant, when I’m not washing my hair I wear them in the shower with no problem. You double click the logo to skip a song and press it 3 times to go back to a song. They are extremely comfortable, I wear them for up to 8hrs at a time and the battery life is incredible! I barely charge them. When you’re on your phone and open the case it’ll say which headphone you are wearing and which one is in the case and the battery percentage on the headphones and the case. I highly suggest these, these are my second pair, I have my other set to my bf otherwise I would still have them. Also when you lose them you can ping them with your phone if you have the find my app it will play a noise. So worth it!

    Returned but really nice

    I was looking for something to replace my air pods at the gym because they keep falling out of my ears – I was super excited when it arrived the packaging was prefect they looked amazing. Putting them on was a little difficult I ended up having to change out the sizes of the pads. But unfortunately I ended up returning them. Once I got them on they felt like they were touching my brain they definitely weren’t going to fall off but they gave me an instant headache. I needed up getting the Beats Solo 3 over the ear ones and love them.

    Best ever made

    I have had my Powerbeats for 5+ years…in the last I would have issues of connectivity and wear sounds inside but they are working right now and I’m using them all the time. Great stuff.

    Im using them right now

    Sound quality is great, they are comfy, and they are great for workouts. They aren’t advertised as noise cancelling but they do a good job regardless.

    I use this every week day for about an hour and a half for my work outs. I’ve used other in ear and over headphones to listen to music to. It is not a complete noise cancel but is good since you never know what can happen in the gym. They last for about 3 weeks before I need to charge the main case. A major benefit is they don’t fall out while lifting and can easily pause/play music. I can answer phone calls as well with ease. I would definitely buy again once mine run their course of life. Solid sound as well as comfort.

    Best bang for your buck

    I recommend buying some “used” ones. You can save $100 easy. These are absolutely the best headphones ever. I got a used pair 3 years ago and funny enough today was the first time I had a problem with audio quality. I bought a pair for my loved ones and I’ll always use these. 10/10

    Good but could be better

    Headphones are good, but volume is very limited….wish there was a way to make them louder.
