Powerbeats Pro Review: Better than AirPods 2, but not for everyone

    Apple's Powerbeats Pro bests the AirPods in almost every way you can think. It's the best H1 wireless earbuds Apple has ever made. But the only place it really falls short is the quick convenience the AirPods have had since day one, and that matters.

I've been looking for a pair of headphones like these to play basketball in. If I sat my phone on the sideline would the connection stretch far enough for to play with em in?

I just ordered a pair of PB Pro. You confirmed my decision with your review. I’ve been using AirPods at the gym. The right one is starting to fail, I suspect because of sweat.

I’ve had my AirPods for a while now, really like them. I bought the Powerbeats pro for my wife when they came out but lately I’ve been the one using them the most. They’re perfect for the gym. Great review btw!

Had these for about 3 weeks and the left earbud completely died on me. Tried to sync in the case with several devices, tried the “reset” (that feature wasn’t even working), googled this issue and apparently it’s a very common issue. Tried updating the firmware, tried “forgetting” all the devices to re-sync them and at that point my devices weren’t even picking up the case’s Bluetooth signal. Apparently all Apple would do is send you back the same headphones since it would connect to their device on their end. Edit: nice headphones, his review is on point, just be wary that A LOT of these shipped out a little faulty.

I wear glasses all the time, and my experience with other "hook on the ear" earbuds is that they aren't comfortable for me when combined with wearing glasses. There's a lot I like about the Apple Airpods, but I need more than five hours per charge, so I'm still holding off on them.

I currently use the AirPods for everything. Casual and for working out, mainly cycling. But I am planning to buy the Powerbeats Pro sometime soon (waiting for a review on ivory colour) for gym and stuff. Its better to use AirPods while cycling coz you can hear people behind you and move out of their way and just be more conscious about the environment. Whereas, for gym, you'll need some noise isolation

I just got the beats pro. My only gripe is the huge case, not as sleek as airpods case so I just been leaving the case in my car or at home and bringing one or two beats in my pocket, depending on what I'm going to be doing. Other than the case, they're better than airpods based on my usage. Battery life, they don't fall out, they're not white (unless you like the white option), easier to clean ear wax off the tips vs off the mesh of the airpods, and they're more comfortable because it's not plastic resting on your ear. Anyway, Airpods are good for ultimate convenience, but only if they fit your ears. They're sleek, charging case is portable, and battery life is good enough. The beats are not as sleek but they're fine. The charging case isnt portable without a bag, but the battery life is GREAT!

Is your case hinge loose? I just got a pair today and it’s loose. For $250, I expect it to be solid.

It’s not the smoothest tightest case hinge. But it doesn’t bother me. But it’s not the same sleek smooth hinge you expect. It’s not too bad, but it’s not great either unless yours is extreme.

Let me tell you guys my experience I brought the Powerbeat pros and return them in two days 😏 Why you may ask well... For some reason it was constantly disconnecting from my iPhone XS Max so I return them and brought the Galaxy buds 😮 I can’t believe I did this , guess because I try almost every high end headphones and figure what the heck and let me tell you guys something the Galaxy buds are OUTSTANDING When testing the Powerbeat pros I found that the sound was good but it didn’t WOW me like the Sennheiser MTW but it did sound good Then I tryout the Galaxy buds and man to me there was really no difference in sound between the Powerbeat pros and The Galaxy buds which is insane because your paying almost $175 more for them. If the beats pro was a 8.2 in sound then the Galaxy buds are a 8.0 Also explain to me why the Galaxy buds has better controls than both the Powerbeat pros and EarPods Let me explain When you connect the Galaxy buds to your iPhone you can mute a person when your on a call by tap and holding either earbud for 2 seconds , also if your on a call and someone is calling you on the other line you can double tap and it will switch to the other line and once your finish or want to switch back and forth in between lines all you have to do is double tap again. I can’t believe Apple hasn’t figured this out and as a huge Apple fan boy I’m telling you for the price of $130 the buds are better On and yes you can use the Galaxy buds for the gym ✌🏼

I have both and I use them differently for the exact same reasons. When I’m in the car and I’m listening to music and someone needs to make a call, my AirPods are in my cup holder. PBP live in my gym bag. Literally no other use for them, but I may try sleeping with them tonight to see if they fill the void of losing AirPods in my bedsheets at night (and last a full 9 hours)

Over the ear issue: Notice that Brian isn't wearing sun glasses, prescription eye glasses or a hat... outside? If you wear prescription glasses, or wear sunglasses outside when your active (read: everyone) than the additional hardware hanging on your ear is a real problem. And if you are a cyclist/snowboarder or in any activity that requires a helmet- that's a lot of 'ear crowding' happening on top of your ears that will become uncomfortable very quickly.

Got mine last week too. I haven’t touched my AirPods since I got them. The Powerbeats bring us one huge step closer to human augmentation. One thing I’m not sure if I like is they are so sound isolating I can’t hear much of anything going on around me which makes me feel more isolated from the world
