The new 2nd gen Airpods were impressive, but Apple's new Powerbeats Pro are even MORE impressive, especially for active users. But are they good enough to impress non-athletes?

I recently purchased the Powerbeats Pro and kinda regret it - I should have gone for the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless or maybe the Sony WF-1000XM3. The main reason is that as an Android user, it's annoying that I can't tell how much battery life I have left on these earbuds, when even low-quality, $15 generic Bluetooth headphones can do that. I watched at least 10 video reviews regarding the Powerbeats Pro prior to the purchase, and none of them said anything about the lack of such a feature. This video by Linus Tech Tips does point it out - thank you! - but I found this video a bit too late.

These are great if you have tall ears because the hooks are just there to hold them partially, they actually "sit" inside your ear, when you have them for about 2 hrs that can be taxing on your ear, i know i got them the first day they came out and they hurt when i use them for long periods of time.

This review is crap. Apple didn’t do anything crazy here. If your an athlete or just like working out to music, get Jaybirds , there way better and more sweat resistance and leagues ahead in audio quality that these PowerBeats pros. I bought the pro’s and was thoroughly disappointed and they were my first beats I ever bought. I went back got a refund and got Jaybirds and it was night and day and also you can adjust the low, mids, and high settings as well. And you can also check out other people’s audio settings and download them to your Jaybirds wirelessly. Also it has IPX7 sweat and water protection, so if your working out crazily or if water gets on them it isn’t even an issue. Beats are a joke it’s only popular because of the brand name that there made “By Dre”. Don’t fall for this review and spend 250 dollars. Instead get the superior Jaybird workout earbuds at only 110$ for the X4 model.

Hi all , i would like to ask if there is any possibility of replacement the battery after 2 years ( i am asking because i saw on beats official site that you can replace the battery for 70 dollars ) Thank you

Am I the only one who is experiencing this problem? I bought this pair of headphones, and I noticed that there’s a problem with them while I am working out. The problem was with the connectivity. They disconnect for 2 to 3 seconds. Also, the sound sometimes changes, and it feels like it is coming from a deep place. I returned them to Apple and get new ones, and still the problem is there with the second pair of headphones.
